Panasonic Lumix GF3

 

The all-new 12.1MP Lumix GF3 is the "world's smallest" interchangeable lens camera and offers lightning fast AF performance. Does this make it the best Lumix model yet?

Super-fast AF performance ; Touch AF and Touch Shutter control ; Intuitive touch-screen controls

Hot-shoe connection has been removed ; Pop-up flash a bit delicate ; It's not cheap

It’s really hard not to like the GF3 – it’s very small, very stylish, very easy to use and is capable of delivering very good image quality too. On top of this it also offers a generous amount of user control, some useful shooting features and...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 review

 

Panasonic's smallest interchangeable lens compact system camera to date (just about) fits in a pocket and boasts integrated flash into the bargain.

Metal build ; Ease of use ; Creative Control modes

Mono sound ; LCD not angle adjustable ; Pricey

In making its smallest compact system camera (or ‘CSC’) small enough to squeeze into a pocket, Panasonic has squeezed out some of the features that made its predecessors winners at the enthusiast level, such as the hotshoe for supplementary flash, the...

Panasonic Lumix GF3 review

 

Launched just six months after the GF2 (which we liked apart from its touchscreen interface), the GF3 will raise eyebrows if you're expecting a better specced bundle. This time, in stripping away a hot shoe, accessory port and stereo mic, Panasonic has...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3

 

As regards to truly compact, compact system cameras, Olympus may have got there first with its E-P1 in late-2009, but Panasonic's Lumix DMC-GF1 wasn't far behind, stealing some of its Micro Four Thirds system co-developer's thunder by including the...

Solid feel construction, smaller compact-like form factor yet retaining the DSLR-like ability to swap lenses, user friendly blend of virtual and “real” buttons

Flimsy rubber cover to HDMI and AV port, no in-body image stabilisation, mono sound, smaller form factor gives rise to occasional image blur resulting from camera shake in lower light more than predecessors, omits hotshoe and means of attaching a...

We’ve focused on the highlights here, but, in summary, in looking to downsize its GF1 and GF2 predecessors still further - and admittedly a CSC that you can squeeze into your pocket with lens still attached is the ultimate goal - the GF3 omits some...

Panasonic GF3 review

 

Small, classy and touchy-feely

Very small body ; Lots of control ; Easy to use ; Built-in flash

No viewfinder No accessory port Unbalanced with longer lenses

Panasonic's GF3 is the smallest, lightest, Micro Four Thirds compact system camera (CSC) that the company has introduced to date. In fact, it's so small that at first glance you could be forgiven for confusing this latest model with Panasonic's top-end...

The more I used the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3, the more it became apparent that this model is a clear move to tap into the entry-level market. However, other users should not let that put them off.The combination of touchscreen and on-camera buttons,...

Panasonic Lumix GF3 Mirrorless Camera Review

 

Panasonic put the Micro in Four Thirds with the smallest Micro Four Thirds camera currently available! Find out if Panasonic has gone too far - is it too small for it's own good?

Extremely fast focus, continuous shooting; Good build quality with metal body; Great image quality; Low noise up to ISO1600; Flash direction can be altered; Smallest mirrorless camera with built in flash; Maintains colour as ISO setting increased;...

Panasonic Lumix GF3 review

 

The Panasonic Lumix GF3 delivers true quality in an ultra-small package. Taking a different and more consumer-led path from the original and subsequent GF-series releases, the GF3's lack of a hotshoe mount and mode dials, exclusion of provisions for a...
