My GH3 certainly has a 29 minute 59 second video recording limit, in common with nearly all Video-capable DSLRs/DSLMs sold in Europe. (BTW I really quite like DSLM as a descriptive term for Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, which the M stands for, makes them seem to be more like DSLRs which some are.)

I wouldn't be surprised to find all the PAL versions have this limit. Also if they are doing it on the GH3 I'm sure their whole range has this limit.

The limit is imposed to stop the EU designated the camera as a video camera, and charging a higher rate of duty. All video-capable stills cameras have it. With some Pannys there's a hack to get round it
