Panasonic Lumix GF1: White Or Red?

GF-1-white1

Design wise, I’d prefer the Olympus EP-1. But if I were to get a Lumix GF1 (and that’s a big IF) – I would most probably go for either a white or red one. As of now, I still think the white looks better. But the red is not far behind …

    Hi,
    I want to pick red as i personally like red colour most. It looks so attractive. The design of Panasonic Lumix GF1 looks perfect with red colour.

    The WHITE GF1 is definitely my choice! Modern, minimalist and glamorous. I would think anyone with a red camera is just strange!!! (unless they’re 5 years old!) Where can I buy the white one?

    i got the white. had to buy the hong kong version with english menus and paid an extra $200 premium for it $1100- but worth it for me. then i saw that amazon is charging the same price – jacked up to high demand.

    its a damn awesome camera. i can completely see difference due to big sensor and more depth of field which is just great.

    the menus are complex and taking a bit getting used to – but a lot of cool options and features. the pop up flash is good but have to be delicate with it.

    too bad apple aperture does not support GF1 RAW format

    The HK version is all english everywhere unless you change to HK Chinese. The white is also offered in europe but since it is euros – it’s is 50% higher than the US version. This means you will pay 900 Euros. The other place is Japan but that is ALL japanese. The HK versions offer best value if you go white. Biught via ebay throu skdigi. i paid 1150 USD. Funny thing was I was going to get on amazon but liked white so much I thought i would pay the 200usd premium – then due to high demand and no stock – i see the gf1 w 20mm ranging from 1400-1600USD. go figure.

    i love the white by the way. red is fugly and silver is boring.

    LeoFish, I heard that the HK version cannot run video in NTSC, because it is region-coded for PAL. Is this true? Can it not be changed in the cam settings?
