It sounds like he got the GH3 confused with some other camera. Maybe an older Nikon camera or something. His conclusions are irrational.

His opinion and rating is clearly biased.


Aleo,

We've discussed how bias is defined before.  Is it your opinion that Ming intentionally wrote a negative review of the GH3, regardless of how he really feels about it?  Or is your notion of bias different?  As I noted before, behavioral scientists have demonstrated that unconscious preferences and biases influence all of our opinions/judgments/decisions.  Imo, there is no such thing as an objective review (unless you are only reporting raw facts, such as physical characteristics).  Obviously, some reviews are more biased than others, but all reviews reflects individual tastes and preferences. So, when you say that he is biased, what exactly is it that are you saying?

No, I think it is was not intentionally, I think it is his opinion, but I think it was a bit unconsciously  biased because of what he likes on the OMD, not is intention but he have done it anyway.

I tried both cameras and both are at the same quality level to me, and many agree with that, they are just different cameras. I could buy both for different purposes. But I must say that I will not use the GH3 just for video purposes neither the OMD just for stills, I like stills and I only buy cameras for that, sometimes I do a video but rarely.

You know Michael, I think that you brought a good point that is, unless the reviews are only based on the technical results, there will be always biased opinions unconsciously or not.
