I haven't had a lot of luck with WiFi with the GH-3 or GX-7.

The WiFi implementation on these cameras is nothing like what Canon and Nikon use which allow simultaneous  transfer and much easier to setup and use.

In fact I have setup many Canon and Nikon cameras using WiFi but really struggle with the GH-3 and GX-7 especially with an Apple Mac. Panasonic said originally the problem was with Apple but had they used the traditional approach of Nikon and Canom then this wouldn't have been an issue.

If you want to "tether" using a cable whilst shooting then that option isn't available either.

Controlling the cameras using WIFi and an iPhone app is great. (If you use the correct one)

I must say that I do love the GH-3 and the GX-7 and am glad I sold my D300 and Nikon kit but Panasonic needs to address this IMHO.
