dSLR taking up too much room?
... maybe not for long! Panasonic just announced their G1 camera: basically, a digital camera with a high quality electronic viewfinder and interchangeable lens in SLR form factor. It's the new micro 4/3 format. Time will tell whether or not this setup succeeds, but for me, this looks like a real solution for when I don't need to haul around my whole D300 kit.
It's actually kind of cute... and my wife likes the "red" colour option!
