On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4: a quick summary (471 comments in total)

Yes, but is the viewfinder any good? that on the GH3 verges on unusable with blurry corners, dreadful colours and coating that rubs off. If they haven't fixed that it will be no use to anybody.

Franz Kerschbaum: I can skip this one, its only minor pollishing from the TS3, which still makes me happy everytime I use it!

I use my TS3 for some pretty serious snorkelling and I've not had a problem with water getting in but it is VERY prone to misting up inside - much much more so than the Canon D10 under the same circumstances. Having said that, when it's not misted up the underwater results are great.

Cy Cheze: How fast or slow does the GPS calibrate when you turn the camera on at a new location? Will the meta data of photos taken continue to report an old coordinate until the GPS has enough time (minutes?) to update?

Are the barometer and altimeter readings reliable? Do they have to be calibrated every so often? What do they signify under water? Can the pressure reading really differentiate 35' from 39'? Captain Schettino insisted depth mattered less than the shore view.

I have a TS3 and the GPS takes a very long time to find itself even if left in battery-draining "on" mode, where the GPS is on even if the camera is off. Let's put it this way, if you set the power to turn off after 2 minutes I don't think it ever works out where it is, even if you have just moved 10 miles since it was last on a week earlier. With it set to stay on 5 minutes it does find the new location before turning off..
