Perfect for those looking to get to grips with 4K photography using the very latest products, Panasonic’s stand is set to be a firm favourite.
The CM1’s attendance at the show follows Panasonic’s recent announcement that it will now be widely available nationwide from Mid-April 2015 after a successful initial launch phase. To mark this announcement, Panasonic will be giving away 1 x DMC-CM1 everyday at the show – visitors need to look out for the CM1 chocolate bar at the entrance of the show and if they find the ‘Golden Ticket’, they’ll receive a free CM1.The LUMIX DMC-CM1 is unique in that despite its stylish slim profile allowing it to fit neatly into a pocket; a 1-inch high sensitivity MOS sensor and LEICA DC lens are able to produce high quality images that even rival those of a bulky DSLR.
