Curry's price before applying any discounts is £849.99

Use code SALE6 to achieve price of £798.99 (code expires 21/7)

The £75 cashback offer from Panasonic brings the price down to £723.99

Finally, 3% quidco should get you at least another £19 off.

This camera is great for photos and HD movies with a cinematic feel. For amateur film-makers on a budget, it represents a good alternative to the much more expensive Canon EOS 5D MKII or 7D.

I've been monitoring prices on this camera for a while and this is easily the best price I've seen from a reputable seller.

Incidentally, the lens on this should net you £450-£500 on eBay after sellers fees, so you could cash in on the lens to leave you with a great value camera body.

i was going post this when i got a chance. a lot of retailers have reduced their price to £899 - looks like they are clearing stock for the GH2 coming out. if all the cashback comes through, £750 is an excellent price.

Wow !

Don't understand why this camera is so popular. It's noisier than a DSLR, not much smaller but has a much smaller sensor.

If anyone goes for a 3/4 sensor, at least get a smaller camera (physically smaller).

The GH1 is quite light & compact given the 10X lens by comparison with a normal D-SLR.

Given the great HD movie quality it makes this a really good buy for the discerning home user.

A big step up from a bridge camera and not that far behind a good amateur D-SLR.

Yes but it's more than dSLR prices :-(

My point is The Panny G1/2 are not SLRs. They have no mirror and the viewfinder picture is transmitted the same way as any compact/bridge camera does. But the noise it makes when a picture is taken is the same as a mirror slapping up and down. That's my critisizm of the G1/2 models.

Photo quality is the same as a Pen camera, so get a smaller camera for the smaller sensor (and pay less).

Also means you wouldn't have to faff about with expensive lens adapters.

I have to agree. The whole point of the Micro 4/3 system was DSLR quality in a smaller size. If I was going to go for the GH1 I'd rather just upsize slightly to a regular DSLR and at this price you could get something half decent.

Checking out vimeo will show some incredible video footage taken with the standard and firmware modified versions of the GH1. So I'd say movie making is the reason for buying one of these. They've even been used on a few commercial projects (admittedly in precarious situations where their relatively low value compared with real pro gear makes them almost disposable). It's a shame Currys aren't participating in the Panasonic 3 year warranty offer though.

You will not find a regular DSLR at this price with a similar lens and video capabilities! Also any regular DSLR with a similar lens will weigh twice as much and be considerably larger.

Now down to £800 at Currys so after £75 cash back it will be £725!

A real bargain if you have the cash!

Now down to £800 at Currys ...


Thanks for the tip-off, but I must have missed it at that price.

I've just checked and the price is now £849.99. Had I been quick enough, I would have definitely purchased one when the pre-discount price was £800. With all the discounts applied + quidco, it would have only cost £658. That's a remarkable price considering these sell for £750+ second hand!

I'll keep my eye on Curry's price from now on and hope the price drops again.
