Techradar reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1 and writes;
“if you’re looking for a compact camera to use as an everyday backup to your main, heavier, camera, then it is a very good option with very good image quality and some fun features, such as digital filters and panoramic mode. We’d have liked to have seen a touchscreen, though.”

Ephotozine reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1 and writes;
“The Panasonic Lumix LF1 gives a good zoom range in a very compact camera, with full manual controls and raw shooting. In addition to this the camera manages to squeeze in an electronic viewfinder, in a camera not much bigger than other models without any kind of viewfinder.”

“I’d say Panasonic has sensibly delivered a camera which complements its existing range and successfully goes up against the S110 which has surprisingly few decent rivals. It’s therefore easy to Recommended to those who want the smallest camera with a viewfinder and enthusiast feature-set.”
