The latest—and pretty greatest—example of point-and-shoot-size cameras with SLR-quality lenses

Trust us: Your camera phone is no way to capture that epic powder swoosh you're about to lay down in China Bowl. But "real" cameras -- high-quality SLRs with their deep resolution and arrays of shot-specific lenses -- can be bulky and a pain to hump around the mountain. Until now. Panasonic's new GF1 is the latest -- and pretty greatest -- entry in the Micro Four Thirds category of cameras. According to our friends over at Popular Science, "Micro Four Thirds" designates a new format "(referring to the image sensor’s size and 4:3 aspect ratio), combines the interchangeable lenses of an SLR with the compact body of a point-and-shoot." Which means you can get those magazine-quality shots using one hand.
