Panasonic Lumix G3 Review

What Digital Camera
17 September 2011
  • Summary: The G3 with 14-42mm kit lens will retail for £629.99 – close to the G2’s original launch price. None too shabby considering all the technology on offer, and far less than the GH2’s £800 asking price (with the same 14-42mm lens). For a body only purchase, the G3 can be picked up for £549.99.
  • Pros: Super-fast autofocus, built-in EVF, small size
  • Cons: Poor battery life, EVF performance in low light, touchscreen should be more sensitive

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3

Camera Labs

  • Summary: It sports an excellent touch-screen interface, backed-up by a selection of physical buttons for those who prefer traditional controls. The contrast-based AF system is very snappy, giving the camera a very responsive feel which pans the Live View handling on most DSLRs.
  • Pros: Great image quality which matches APS-C DSLRs., Articulated touch-screen with tap-focusing., HD video with quiet and fairly quick continuous AF., Very fast AF and face detection. Ideal portrait camera.
  • Cons: Slow continuous shooting when continuous AF is enabled., Live view not available during continuous bursts above 3fps., Traditional DSLRs better for low light or fast action photography., No external microphone input or manual movie exposures.

  • Conclusion: You could buy a DSLR for less than you pay for the G3, but you don't get the great overall package that the G3 delivers. It's compact, takes great images and is full of useful technology.

  • Pros: Bildqualität verbessert, Bedienung mit Touchscreen und Tasten, Überzeugendes Full-HD-Video
  • Cons: Akku-Laufzeit und -Preis
