Panasonic CM1 - The Digital Camera With Phone Functionality
Panasonic Lumix CM1 Camera Smartphone With Leica 1-in Sensor


While most mobile phone manufacturers out there battle to attach more and more powerfull cameras to their smartphones, Panasonic  takes a different approach to the problem and decides to attach a powerful Android smartphone to a panasonic digital camera.

The result? The Panasonic CM1 smartphone with 1-n sensor and Leica lens.

Announced at Photokina 2014, Panasonic’s CM1 features 20MP resolution, f/2.8 Leica lens, a mechanical shutter, manual control ring and an external lens which, surprisingly, is not there for zooming purposes, but helps better focusing the image. The camera phone weights 7.19oz or 204 grams (that’s only 2.1oz or 60 grams more than the Samsung Galaxy S5) .

On the smartphone side, Panasonic equipped the CM1 with a 4.7in Full HD screen, 2GB of Ram, 16GB on-board storage, 2.3 Ghz quad-core Snapdrgon processor, a microSD card slot allowing expansion with up to 128GB more and a 2,600mAh battery.

The Panasonic CM1 will go on sale this November in Europe (France and Germany) for around 900 Eur (that’s about $1,165 US) with overseas release scheduled for some time after.
