Hear-Say Evidence From Panasonic Now Becomes Hear-See...
It is the Panasonic CM-1. On one side it is a smart mobile phone - like the ones that people tap all the day on the other side of our sales counter. On the reverse it is a good looking compact camera. A far better camera than the current phones sport.
It has a 20 Mp 1" CMOS sensor, 28mm equivalent f:2.8 lens, 100-25600 ISO range, 4K video, RAW recording, a 4.7" LCD screen, Micro SD card storage, and can call for pizza 24 hours a day.
Okay, you may not want to cover a society wedding using it exclusively...though eventually someone will and we will all read about it...but it looks as though real cameras can pair up with real phones. If you can stand the confusion of dealing with mobile phone connection plans this might be a good thing to carry wherever you go.
Not sure if it will improve the selfies but the impromptu landscape shot should be much better.
