GH3 - How do all those wheels work?
Sep 19, 2012

I live in an area that has no nearby camera stores and I am not familiar with any advanced cameras with lots of physical controls. All my camera knowledge comes from the internet. My current camera is a Pany G2, so I am familiar with the wheel which must be pushed in to select aperature/exp comp/speed and then twirled to change the selection up or down.

So I am trying to figure out on the GH3 just what the 3 wheels actually do. It looks like to me that you select iso/exp comp/ or white balance with one of the buttons and then twirl the top wheel to change the value + or -, correct? If so, what does the wheel on the top back plate do? Same as on the G2, changing aperature or speed? or something else?

Thirdly, how does the ring around the menu select button work? Like using the wheel on a mouse? where you scroll through the menu items?
