Being a loyal Canon user, and doing more videography than photography these days, and not being able to afford the 5D3, I bought the GH3 for videography, but also read comments how it is sufficient for photography. For videography, it definitely shines. For photos though, it was a very disappointing experience. Working with Adobe Camera Raw, the colors on people's faces seemed pasty, saturated, and unnatural. The midtones had no range. I later discovered that the GH3's raw files, although ...

I have had GH3 about an year now and I think it is time to share my experiences. I have been shooting videos more than photos but i take a lot of photos too. Counter says about 46 000 files now. At first I can say it is a workhorse. It has been served me very well and I am generally happy with its ergonomics and photo/video quality. There are of course cons and pros. We all know good sides by other reviewers so I concentrate mainly of my cons and even problems: Build quality: Loose battery ...

In my opinion the Panasonic GH3 is the best m4/3 camera on the market to date.  It is a joy to carry, takes great photos, and has the added bonus of a formidable video camera.  I don't find the size an issue, in fact I like the solid feel in my hands and particularly like being able to use gloves to work the camera. I have tried and tried and cannot see an EVF issue so I wonder what that was all about. I take a lot of sports skiing photos and if you use S-AF the percentage of keepers is as ...

I shot the video below last year at the SCS Youth National Climbing Championships with the GH2, 25mm F1.4 lens, and 45mm F1.8 lens with the 2.6x 1080p teleconverter. I really couldn’t hold it still no matter what I did because it didn’t have image stabilization. I had the 14-140mm lens with me as well but the climbing gym was way too dark to use a small aperture lens. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJ6o-oHaFMc This year I specifically bought the GH3 and 35-100mm F2.8 to shoot the National ...

I've found that my camera kit has completed a 15 year cycle of growing to become so big and heavy that I've stopped using it and use compact cameras instead. My D700 now only comes out for weddings, portraits, and events, and almost never for personal use. Simply because when it's wearing my favourite lenses, it's just too big and heavy to manage to juggle with kids and dogs. Full up with the 70-200VR lens is over 2.5kg. I bought my daughter a Panasonic G3 micro 4/3rds camera for her ...

I said before that I was going to try the GH3 with my friend at Panasonic Portugal, he said it is a later prototype. The finish was already the same as on the final camera. I don't know where to start but maybe the ergonomics is a good place to start writing my first impressions. I went to Park of the Nations here in Lisbon, it is near to the river and have modern buildings surrounding and nice bars and coffee shops to be there looking at the camera, then I went to his office again to look ...

This is the first mirrorless camera that I found entirely comfortable to use.  The ergonomics are outstanding with the controls well laid out.  Buttons are a a decent size and well spaced.  The image quality is as good as I have seen in a µ4/3 camera.  If there is difference in the IQ from the OM-D it is so insignificant as to be meaningless.  I have not had the camera long enough to try all of the adjustments possible to the IQ.  But thus far I am happy with the factory settings. With 7 ...

Instead of fashionable image quality comparison I'll concentrate on aspect which has been badly neglected in mirrorless systems and literally treated as sacrificial lamb on altar of fashion: Ergonomics as utilitarian tool. While preceeding models GH1 and GH2 were well below even the worst entry level DSLRs Panasonic has clearly this time listened serious photographers instead of fashion magazines. Grip housing now also much needed front wheel is vastly improved and in size almost equal to ...
