I'm often asked, "What's a good camera I should buy?" So when a friend recently purchased a used Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 for $280, I was curious to see what I could do with it. Back in 2009 this camera was selling for around $1,000. Unfortunately in technology terms, five years means vintage! My overall impression, this is one of those rare times when I can use the words "good" and "cheap" in the same sentence.
