Panasonic Lumix GH3 Compact System Digital Camera
The GH3 is the "strongest mirrorless interchangeable lens" flagship model, featuring mobility, ruggedness and expandability. An amazingly competent stills camera with our most advanced video features to date.
Lumix G Micro Four Thirds (MFT) System
Developed in 2008, Micro Four Thirds revolutionised the photographic market. The MFT system removed the reflex mirror and replaced it with a high quality electronic viewfinder that reads the image coming through the lens as it is focussed directly on the image sensor. The mirror-less system allows the sensor to be mounted much closer to the back of the lens, which in turn allows both the camera body and lenses to be smaller and lighter without compromising the image quality.
Large LIVE MOS Image Sensor
The size and type of sensor was a critical part in the development of Lumix G. 8x larger than the sensor used in a typical compact camera, and large enough to capture all the light coming through the lens without bending or distortion. The Micro Four Thirds sensor is almost as large as a Digital SLR APS-C sized sensor, but is designed to match the lens mount aperture perfectly, allowing the light to enter the camera in a straight line.
A Growing Range Of Compatible Interchangeable Lenses
Whatever photo opportunity arises, the growing number of creative lenses available for the Micro Four Thirds System ensures that you won't miss out. Over 30 models from manufacturers such as Olympus, Sigma, Leica and, of course, Panasonic are already available with more being added regularly.
New 16.05 Effective Megapixels Resolution Digital Live MOS Sensor
Panasonic's latest generation of Live MOS sensor is newly developed for the GH3 and incorporates a built-in Analogue to Digital convertor which eliminates signal noise in the output stage. The advantage of this is exceptionally clean images are generated even at ISO sensitivity settings as high as 12800. Wide dynamic range and a low-pass filter also contribute to outstanding image quality.
Ultra High Speed 0.09 sec Auto-focus Capability
Our fastest ever auto-focus speed can be obtained when combining this camera with our latest double-speed AF control lenses. The combination of this lightning fast sensor and lens control means you get the action in focus more of the time.
50P FULL HD Video Mode with Broadcast Quality Ultra High Bit Rate & Time-code in New MOV Format
As the GH3 will appeal not least for its top end video recording abilities, Panasonic have incorporated true broadcast quality codecs and recording options. Bit rates up to 72Mbps are available in All-Intra 50P mode, while Interframe IPB recording is offered at 50Mbps in MOV (H.264) format. Less space hungry file formats are of course available for the more occasional video user including AVCHD and MP4.
Full-time Auto Focus Available during Video Recording
Due to the mirror-less design and Contrast Auto Focus system, auto focussing is continuously available during video recording.
Built-in Wi-Fi for Enhanced Network Functions
The inclusion of Wi-Fi functionality adds a whole new level of control and convenience. This new functionality includes: Remote control by smart phone or tablet device. Automatic back-up of photos to a Wi-Fi enabled tablet. Playback, Print or Transfer your pictures to other networked devices in your home. You can even add the location to your pictures using the GPS function of your tablet of phone that the camera is linked with.
High Quality Kit Lens Option
LUMIX G VARIO HD 14-140mm/F4.0-5.8 ASPH./MEGA O.I.S.
This kit lens option matches the high quality H-VS014140E HD video lens with a digital stills camera that excels at video. The powerful 10x zoom, optical image stabilisation and silent AF motor design make it the perfect choice for this camera.
Functionality & Ease of Use
Double OLED Display - EVF and 3.0 Inch, Free Angle Touch Screen
Not only equipped with an incredibly clear 1.74M dots OLED Electronic Live View Finder with eye sensor, but also includes a high resolution 3.0 Inch, static touch, free-angle OLED display which gives you great control over composition however you prefer to hold your camera.
6fps High Speed Burst Shooting with Full Resolution
Two high-speed burst modes are offered. At full resolution it is possible to capture an incredible 6 frames per second. When the action is mega fast, there is the option of super high speed which shoots 20 fps at a resolution of 4 Megapixels.
Electronic (Silent Shutter) Mode
Although the camera shutter noise can be reassuring, to let you know that the shot has taken, sometimes it's better to have no noise at all. In some shooting situations a noise may frighten or upset your subject. The Electronic shutter mode allows silent operation of the camera.
Enhanced Shooting Assist Function - Level Gauge
A handy Level Gauge is provided on the display that helps you to correctly align the camera. Whether shooting in a landscape or portrait orientation, the camera's internal gyro sensor always knows the angle of the camera and displays guide lines on screen to help you hold the camera level.
Stereo Sound Recording
A built-in stereo microphone means high quality Dolby encoded stereo sound can be recorded when using video mode. Microphone level control is also available as is a wind cut filter to reduce wind noise when shooting outdoors.
3.5mm Microphone and Headphone Socket
Now with the mini jack (3.5mm) microphone and headphone sockets, you can record and monitor video sound like the pro's.
Optional Battery Grip
The optional large battery grip (DMW-BGGH3E) supports an additional high capacity battery and offers an even more secure grip of the camera during shooting.
Magnesium Alloy Chassis with Splash/Dust-proof Design
Built for mobility, the magnesium alloy chassis is both light and strong. While the rubber-ring seals protect the camera from ingress of dust or water through splashing.
Built-in Pop-up Flash (GN12) with Wide Illumination Angle and Flash Sync Control
The GH3 offers our most powerful pop-up flash with not only a guide number 12 range, but also a wider angle of throw. Also included on the camera is a flash syncro socket so that external flashes can also be fired.
Recording Mode HDMI Monitor Output
Use the mini HDMI output for monitoring the video signal during recording, to another HDMI device such as a large screen TV or record the signal off-board to an external recorder.
Creative Shooting Controls
14 Creative Effect Filters
Up to 14 creative filter effects can be selected before taking your shot. These six standard effects: Expressive, Retro, High Key, Sepia, High Dynamic and Miniature have now been added to with the inclusion of Toy Effect, Low Key, Star Filter, One Point Colour, Dynamic Monochrome, Soft Filter, Impressive Art and Cross Process offering you a wider choice of creative style.
HDR Shooting Mode
HDR (High Dynamic Range) mode allows for natural looking photos to be created from difficult shooting scenes where background lighting is too strong for subjects in the foreground. Three photos with different exposures are consecutively shot with one shutter release. The best parts of three photos are combined to produce a photo with excellent gradation and minimal shadow blocking/blown highlights.
Time-lapse Shooting Mode
Time lapse recording enables the user to capture an event spaced over a long period of time, in a video sequence that you only want to last a few seconds, such as the opening of a flower or the setting of the sun. Shooting intervals between 1 sec and 99 mins and 59 seconds can be selected.
Multiple Exposure Function
Between 2 and 4 images can be synthesised together to a create a multiple exposure picture. Let your creativity flow and see what amazing imagery you can come up with.
24P Playback Full HD Resolution Fast or Slo Motion Recording
By shooting at a faster than normal or slower than normal speed, very effective slo-motion or high-speed sequences can be enjoyed without compromising the full HD resolution. Three high speeds are available - 1.6x, 2x and 3x playback. Three slo-motion speeds are available - 0.8x, 0.48x and 0.4x playback.

a) It has a standard port for audio jack. This means that you can plug in an external mic without using converts.
b) They have a battery grip!!! Yeah
c) They have a shot gun mic that can be plugged directly to the mic jack
d) They have .mov format of recording
e) The picture quality is way better than the GH 2
f) It works very well with prime lenses from Voigtlander and Sneider Kreuzach
Great piece. Keep it up.
The cons: shutter speed 1/4000, autofocus a little bit slow, video info doesn't stay on screen.
In my opinion this is a great camera and it's worth every penny. The only better choice the Canon 5D MK III, if you want do video as well, just way too expensive. Or the Panasonic GX7 with less video function.
Well, I will not get rid of my two GH3's in a hurry. The 1080 HD video from these is just gorgeous. Nikon is trying hard with the D5300 .... Canon isn't even in the race anymore.
Can't go wrong with this camera for video - can't comment on stills. Have not taken a single one yet!
The other big advantage is that it really is almost as good as my Canon 7D but a LOT lighter - especially in a camera bag with a couple of lenses and other odds and ends. This camera is very definately capable of fully professional results.
