Hi I started out with a G1, but 2 years later because I wanted "some" video bought a GH1 as they were then cheap enough to swap out my G1 for. I've been happy with my GH1 since then and there was no doubt in my mind that as a stills camera it was ahead of my G1. Our Media Production unit at work got a GH4 and I thought it would be interesting to look at a few things between the cameras. in my view ...: GH1 vs GH4 - generations Generally the cameras compare favourably and aside from the possibility of a few more pixels the GH1 has stacked up well for those of us who use RAW and just want stills. Now of course for video there is no competition, the GH4 is the one. But for someone who's a still oriented shooter and not wanting to commit a lot on a "toe dipper" then my post may convince you that a GH1 is actually an excellent "sleeper" in the older range that you can pick up for under $200 in excellent condition.
