Our advice: From our own experience, we recommend SanDisk memory cards. The SanDisk Extreme Pro is fast enough for high-speed image sequences and 4K video:

Memory card for DMC GM1 and X-A3

The 64 GB Extreme will take up to 90 minutes of super high-res 4K video. For Full HD video we recommend the SanDisk Ultra.

The DMC GM1 features a Four Thirds sized sensor, while the X-A3 uses a APS-C sensor.

This infographic highlights the sensor areas of both models compared to other common sensor formats:

Note: 1-Euro coin for scale; the coin at 23.25mm diameter is slightly smaller than a US quarter.

Featuring an area of 371mm² (0.59 sq.in.), the X-A3's sensor is somewhat larger that the chip that the DMC GM1 employs at 225mm² (0.36 sq.in.). A larger sensor can produce images of interiors or at night that have less noise and better contrast than photos shot with Four Thirds sized chips.

CameraCreativ recommends the Fujifilm X-A3.

Our rating of the Panasonic DMC GM1

Panasonic's GX800 (US: GX850) is a very compact mirrorless ILC with a Micro Four Thirds sensor and 16 megapixel resolution. The camera has a very good feature set: Wifi, 4K video, and built-in functions for panoramas and time lapse recordings. A viewfinder is missing to keep the camera pocketable. The display is articulated and can be flipped a full 180 degrees, ideal for selfies. As it stands, the GX800 (GX850) is one of the most affordable and smallest MFT cameras. The provided resolution allows prints up to size A3. Recommended lens to keep the total size down: Panasonic 20mm F1.7 pancake. Mediocre battery life, a spare battery is recommended.

For an alternative with built-in image tabilizer and viewfinder see the Panasonic GX80 (US: GX85).
