Slim, stylish and easy to use, the LUMIX GF3X captures the moments you want to remember in exceptional detail. Panasonic’s new LUMIX GF3X, is the world's smallest and lightest* interchangeable lens LUMIX G system camera, reduced approximately 17% in size and approximately 15% in weight compared with the DMC-GF2. It is designed to help you get more from every moment. Easy to use, bursting with features and weighing just 225g, the LUMIX GF3X puts DSLR image quality in the palm of your hand.* For an interchangeable lens system camera with a built-in flash as of June 13, 2011.

The World’s Fastest Level of Light Speed AF*

The DMC-GF3X features the world’s fastest level* of Light Speed AF featuring approx. 0.1 second which is achieved by reducing the detection time for focusing by doubling the drive speed from 60 fps to 120 fps. Besides, in Contrast AF system, focusing is controlled by the image sensor so that no mechanical margin of error occurs to achieve precise focusing. The DMC-GF3X incorporates Full-area focusing and Pinpoint AF function are incorporated allowing more precise focus setting by further enlarging the focusing area.* For an interchangeable lens system camera with a built-in flash as of June 13, 2011.

A Built-in-Flash in a Sleek, Compact Body

Even though the DMC-GF3X’s body is extremely compact, it is equipped with a built-in flash which adopts a new pop-up mechanism to prevent vignetting effect due to short distance between the flash unit and the interchangeable lens.

Furthermore, the body is made of aluminum featuring lightness and high-specific strength with an ergonomic grip which offers a comfortable hold despite its ultra compact size.

The use of the flash in this compact body expands photographic opportunities in shooting people at nighttime or indoors.

iA Plus Mode with Easy Manual Adjustment

The LUMIX GF3X lets you capture great photos from the very first shot with iA+ (Intelligent Auto Plus) mode. Auto Focus and defocus can be set with one touch, Face Recognition will remember the settings for your friends and Intelligent Scene Selector will automatically switch to the appropriate mode according to the subject touched.

The iA+ (Intelligent Auto) Plus will satisfy experienced photographers, yet is easy enough for beginners to use comfortably in both photo and video recording. Defocusing area, exposure compensation and white balance can be adjusted for scenes where a slight manual adjustment may bring better results by just moving the slider with your finger.

Full HD Video Recording in AVCHD Format

Now the DMC-GF3X can record 1,920 x 1,080 videos in AVCHD format featuring almost twice the recording time in HD quality than Motion JPEG.

Easy Video Recording with Full-time Auto Focus - Video recording is more flexible with the DMC-GF3X. Touch the screen, and the camera locks on and automatically “tracks” the subject as it moves, keeping on adjusting the focus settings for best results.

Dolby® Digital Creator High Quality Sound - The microphone on the upper body records dynamic, true-to-life audio that brings out the power of your HD videos.

Colour Name: Black
This camera is capable of taking much better shots than a point and shoot, however it is not as easy to use. I have had it for a few months, and the only major criticism I would make is that the "intelligent" auto mode does not seem to be very smart when you are shooting moving objects. For taking pictures of people indoors without the flash you need to use the action mode, not the IA mode, otherwise they will all be blurry. Pictures taken with the flash do not look so great, so it is better to experiment and try using a higher ISO when indoors. In good light you get good pictures just by using the IA mode.

The camera itself is exactly the same as the other GF3, the only difference on the X model is the lens. I had read complaints online about this lens, saying that when the zoom is used the pictures are blurry. I have not found this, and perhaps it was fixed with a firmware update. However, if you plan to shoot movies, and the sound matters, then you need to buy another lens, unless you are going to use the manual focus. The auto-focus creates a clearly audible whirring sound every time it adjusts. I bought the 14mm pancake lens, which works fine for video.

The full HD video only records 25 fps and does not seem to give better results than the 1280x720 motion JPEG, but the latter is quite good.

I bought this camera because it is small, and it is certainly more convenient than larger DSLR's. However, because of the shape, it still does not compare with a mini point and shoot camera for portability. It is hard to find a case that is the right size for this camera, because of the shape. The Lowepro Apex 60AW works quite well, leaving a little empty space inside.
