The Panasonic Lumix G1 was the first digital mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. It was released in 2008. Prior to the release of the Panasonic G1, all digital interchangeable lens cameras were DSLRs. Panasonic was the first company that dared to release a mirrorless ILC and so the G1 became the forefather of all modern mirrorless cameras. Therefore, the Panasonic Lumix G1 made history. But is it still a usable camera today?
