Small, but unexpectedly nice GH3 feature...
Mar 19, 2013

One of the things that Oly has had in their upper level cameras that I was always intrigued by was the level display feature. Since Panasonic has had their orientation sensors only in their OIS lenses up until recently, that was not an option in the Panny GH line. However, the GH3 does have a body-based orientation sensor, and lo and behold, there is now a switchable level indicator for the displays!

In a rare bit of genius, Panasonic has even seen fit to make it natively accessible via the display button, meaning that you do not have to either assign it to one of the FN buttons, or menu dive for it.

It registers side to side tilt as well as forward and backward tilt, too.

I'm finding this a very useful feature to have, with a particularly nice implementation. I wish they would put this on all of their cameras....saves a lot of horizon leveling/cropping time in PP, too.
