Panasonic’s Lumix camera range has a new addition in the shape of the CM1 Android smartphone, which has all the tools of a quality camera grafted onto a high-end phone.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 is very much a device of two halves. From the front, it looks like a conventional compact camera, with Panasonic’s Lumix camera name, a Leica-branded 28mm lens positioned over to the right, a textured leatherette finish, and a small porthole for the built-in LED flash. From the rear, it looks just like a regular smartphone, with a 4.7-inch screen and the familiar Android OS appearing when you turn it on.
