Can anyone tell me if the TimeLapse output from the GH3 is single frames or is it a video clip @ 24/30 or XX frames per second. . .>>>> never mind. . . a second look at DPR's review, I found were the final output is individual frames, although in playback mode the GH3 will play those frames as a video clip. ..

The comparison of the different viewfinder sizes is wrong! It claims that the viewfinder of the GH3 has a 4:3 ratio although the correct ratio is 16:9. The red rectangle must be much wider or flatter.

Really don't understand the rating of the jpeg compared to OMD em5. In text it seems a lot worse, in bars it's just a tiny hair worse. Whats with this? Both can't be right!
