GX-1L Camera Characteristics
ƃ Features a 23.5x15.7 mm CCD with 6.1 million effective pixels for high precision and a wide dynamic
ƃ Uses CR-V3, AA lithium batteries, rechargeable AA Ni-MH batteries or AA alkaline batteries.
ƃ Features a Digital Preview function for checking the image to ensure that the desired result is
ƃ Features a large 2.5-inch LCD monitor with 210,000 pixels and a brightness adjusting function for
high-precision viewing performance.
ƃ Concepts of Universal Design have been implemented to various parts of the camera.
The large, high-resolution LCD monitor and easy-to-use menus make the camera easier to operate.
The captured area (view angle) will differ between the GX-1L and 35 mm SLR cameras even if the
same lens is used because the format size for 35 mm film and CCD are different.
Sizes for 35 mm film and CCD
35 mm film
: 36x24 mm
GX-1L CCD : 23.5x15.7 mm
Angles of view being equal, the focal length of a lens used with a 35 mm camera must be
approximately 1.5 times longer than that of GX-1L. To obtain a focal length framing the same area,
divide the focal length of the 35 mm lens by 1.5.
Example) To capture the same image as a 150 mm lens attached to a 35 mm camera
Use a 100 mm lens with the GX-1L.
Inversely, multiply the focal length of the lens used with GX-1L by 1.5 to determine the focal length
for 35 mm cameras.
Example) If 300 mm lens is used with GX-1L
Focal length is equivalent to 450 mm lens on a 35 mm camera.
