Button Pusher: I think the burning questions that we have or would like to have confirmed by the DPR crew about the GH3 are if the sensor is a Panasonic or Sony sensor and is the GH3 sensor a multi-aspect sensor. If the sensor is not mult-aspect, why did they choose to remove that feature from the GH3 when it was a selling point for the GH1 and GH2?
Already confirmed it with a Panasonic US higher up. No multi-aspect sensor, and the sensor is made by Panasonic, not Sony.
I have an inside guy pretty high up in Panasonic USA, and here are the specs that he confirmed:
Sensor is NOT multi-aspectSensor is made by Panasonic, not SonyHDMI output to ext recorder is clean, uncompressedNo focus peakingThird wheel dial on the back, bottom right can be programmed to various adjustments for stills/movie
I really really like this, BUT.... I can't use it for studio fashion photography since it doesn't tether to a monitor/laptop =\
