Panasonic Offers a ‘Try Before You Buy’ Service for the LUMIX DMC-GH3
Continuing to push the boundaries, Panasonic is pleased to offer a ‘Try Before You Buy’ service for the multiple award winning LUMIX DMC-GH3 with 12-35mm lens. This ingenious service allows customers to borrow the GH3 kit for 48 hours (excluding delivery and collection time) from a number of retailers with no obligation to purchase. A real plus for Panasonic customers, this opportunity allows them to explore and try the camera in their own setting before deciding to purchase.
Barney Sykes, Lumix G Camera Product & Marketing Manager says "The GH3 is by far the most advanced system camera we have ever launched and we recognise customers may want to road test this product before committing to such as high value purchase, therefore we are delighted to be able to offer this scheme to our key retail partners to help increase their sales opportunities"
The ‘Try Before You Buy’ service, new this month, has been extremely well received and has now been extended to many other Panasonic stockists who also wish to offer this service to customers.
