I wanted to dip into more extensive cameras that weren't just point and shoots. I found this camera along with a M.Zuiko Macro 50mm MF F1.8 for about $100 with all the packaging in place from a relative so I decided to give it a try. I initally wasn't able to use the Iauto function as I didn't have a AF lumix lens. The GF3 is perfect with the M.Zuiko Macro 50mm, the depth of field that it was able to capture amazed me. The touch screen menus can be confusing at first, but after a day of use ...

I have a GF3 as a spare body, having already bought a G1 some time ago. It is very similar in concept to the G1, though of course it lacks a viewfinder. Paired with the excellent Panasonic 40mm f1.7 lens, this is an effective and very small camera that is fast to operate. It also works well with the 14-45mm zoom. It works extremely well in low light and its iA feature (for those in a hurry) is especially effective in nearly all normal situations. For the sort of photography I do, its 12 mpx ...

purchased the gf3 with the 14-42 and the 45-200 lenses. For someone who prefers dials for full control, not the camera for you!...This is a pretty basic camera geared to the mainstream. The touch screen is really a breeze to learn. And the Panny Ai system is one of the best out there. Like any point and shoot, set it and shoot away if you prefer. If i want full control i will use my DSLR for that..If you are looking for a camera that is more than capable and more versatile than a point and ...

same here, i thought it would be a good idea if i bought a micro four thirds first before getting full frame SLR, but to my disappointment, this camera gives no better result compared to my point&shoot, instead it brings a lot of headaches. the problem is, most of the pictures i take are dark and underexposed if i don't use flash indoors,and the outdoor capturing don't yield better results too. I do not understand why the much bigger sensor and lens do not bring better pictures, if any, it ...

I am sure that once I have sussed out how to use this camera it will be great but I am finding it very hard to understand, thus, my pictures aren't coming out as good as I want... especially indoor ones. I really need to study the manual and watch the Panasonic Tutorial Videos. I have owned the Panasonic Lumix TZ1 for a while now and think it is brilliant and I expected the GF3 to run with the same menus. I wanted the change because the TZ1 zoomed in photos aren't very good if you zoom too far.
