Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 76?

reviews indicate that it has great expert reviews and very good user reviews with an average overall rating of 87%, based on 173 reviews. This digital camera has received 25 awards including a "Recommended" award from Lydogbilde.no plus six other sites and an "Editor's Choice" award from Cnetfrance.fr plus five other sites.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer digital cameras with better features are available. However this Panasonic digital camera has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
The Lumix DMC-GX1 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels video resolution
Has an image stabiliser
Compact system camera
Does not have a GPS
Does not support Wi-Fi

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each digital camera by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the digital camera is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec digital cameras come to market, the older digital cameras will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.

What is This Digital Camera Best Used For?

Having compared it with other relevant digital cameras, we have concluded that it is very good for everyday photography. It is also good for landscape photography.
