Cool camera at first look, but image quality not quite good.
7 March 2013
Summary: It was a pretty cool camera and I used it as a back up camera for my canon 7D. Seconds I took it out for some test, the result was pathetic. But, of course, better than most DC such as sony T series. It was well built and I think the quality was good. However, I can not stand the digital viewfinder and relatively poor image, I returned it about a week after I received.
A good sensor, smaller and lighter than a SLR but not as versatile as a Cannon

Summary: Bought as wanted something better than a phone and smaller and lighter than a SLR to carry around, with the option of occasionally sticking a couple of old SLR lenses / filters on via a suitable adaptor, which the micro 4/3 range appears to promise. The camera has a good sensor, and is obviously smaller than a SLR but the menuing system I find fiddly and not as versatile as say the Canon EOS, but it can take a vibrant pic, after you've spent many an hour studying the...
Summary: Bought this camera after reading good reviews but must say it was a disappointment from the start.I also have a Panasonic fz 62 and in honesty, cant find much difference. The g3 screen is a pain, being right handed and the screen opening out to the left side means that you have to use your left hand to operate the screen icons , which need a firm press to operate, not easy, I gave up with it in the end.
Summary: Dissapointed to find the camera was not a UK model which was not stated on the Amazon site. The camera had no UK battery charger and I was not able to take advantage of an offer from Panasonic.
Summary: i had the camera 8 months when it went dead on me thought it was battery at first luckily i purchased from amazon they gave me a full quible refund and i purchased a nikon bridge camera the g3 was great while it lasted
Compact camera with excellent image quality, but limited video operation.

Summary: The G3 model does not allow manual video control like Shutter Speed, or ISO. Also, I was not happy with the LCD resolution. Otherwise, this is a very compact camera producing excellent DSLR equivalent image quality. The HD video quality as well as it's continuous auto focus during recording is excellent !!
Summary: Ich habe die G3 ca. 14 Monate lang genutzt und diese hat mir echt gute Dienste geleistet. Positiv: - Bildqualität gut - aber nur mit vernünftigen Objektiven (das mitgelieferte Standardzoom zählt nicht dazu) - gute Verarbeitung und geringes Gewicht - digit. Sucher - intuitive Bedienbarkeit Negativ: - Griffigkeit vom Gehäuse - Display ist nicht optimal, oft erkennt man unscharfe Bilder erst am PC ABER: Nach diesen 14 Monaten exzessiver Nutzung war ich es als Hobbyfotograf...
Schöne Kamera, deutliche Schwächen in der Bildqualität

Summary: Die Kamera ist sehr solide verarbeitet und macht einen hochwertigen Eindruck. Mit der Größe habe ich keine Probleme, ich finde die Bedienung ausgesprochen praktisch. Man kann auch sehr kreativ damit fotografieren, mit Filmen habe ich jedoch keine Erfahrungen, weil ich dafür grundsätzlich eine separate Filmkamera verwende oder für spontane Gelegenheitsaufnahmen meine Lumix FZ150 nehme. Der wichtigste Mangel ist m. E. die Bildqualität.
