Panasonic Lumix GH3

 

Panasonic's pro-level CSC provides some stiff competition for traditional DSLRs.

Class-leading touchscreen control ; High-speed 6fps continuous shooting ; Comprehensive set of video functions ; Solid and robust build quality

EVF lacks edge sharpness ; No option to star rate your images in-camera

As Panasonic’s flagship digital single lens mirrorless (DSLM) camera (more commonly referred to as a compact system camera) the Lumix GH3 has come on a long way from the two-year-old GH2 and brings with it a generous range of improvements. Indeed, with...

Panasonic Lumix GH3

 

The Panasonic Lumix GH3 is a bold step into pro-like territory for a compact system camera. As well as a brand new 16-megapixel sensor, the rugged and splash-proof GH3 also throws in more video capture options than you can shake a stick at....

Video capture is as good as it gets, feature-packed, fast single autofocus, pinpoint autofocus mode, best continuous autofocus of any CSC we've yet seen, wireless and PC socket flash control, sturdy (internal) build, lots of lenses on offer

It's pricey, continuous autofocus won't quite match a mid-pro DSLR, no 1/48 180 degree shutter for cinematic capture, sensor not quite as capable as some APS-C competitors, plasticky appearing exterior, single SD card slot, no ISO 100 sensitivity

Feature-packed, the Panasonic Lumix GH3 is up there with the best Micro Four Thirds cameras, but it sure is a pricey purchase. It's even more cash than the Olympus OM-D, but in a more bloated and less "edgily" styled body.

Hands on: Panasonic Lumix GH3 review - Pocket-lint

 

Panasonic is trying to promote its brand new Lumix GH3 as "the first DSLM". That's "digital single lens mirrorless" for the uninitiated, thought it sounds

The majority of Panasonic's G-series has focused on the more entry-level product: the GF3 and GF5, for example, epitomised point-and-shoot style compact

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 review

 

Despite having a sensor that's smaller than many on the market in the same price range, the DMC-GH3's image quality is up there with the best we've seen. Photos in our tests were crystal clear, offering plenty of detail and dynamic range, even when we...

The Lumix DMC-GH3 has all sorts of buttons and dials that can help you set the scene for your photos. If you use them correctly, you'll end up with images that are clean, highly detailed, and a pleasure to look at. You could also just plonk it in...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 review

 

The Panasonic GH3 is the company's latest flagship Micro Four Thirds camera, and it's much more than a revamped Panasonic GH2. With its larger, weather-sealed magnesium alloy body, vast array of buttons and dials, optional battery grip, PC sync socket...

Highly accomplished for photos and in a league of its own for video

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 is not designed to slip into a pocket, and it is interesting that as Panasonic clearly views its CSCs as a viable alternative to a DSLR system, they don't need to be compact to sell. Taking a wise approach to the...
