It says in the GH3 menu where you select the movie type

MP4   -  Best for Viewing on a PC

So if you dont want to do anything other than play your clips on a PC use this.

AVCHD  -  Best for HDTV

If you only want to play your clips on a HD TV use this

MOV  -  Best for High Quality Editing in video production.

Of course you can edit using MP4 or AVCHD but if you want to edit with the best quality this this.

Also AVCHD 24P/25P will import into iMovie and 24P/25/50P/60P will import into Final Cut X .
