Cool camera at first look, but image quality not quite good.

Song, Amazon
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.

disappointing HD video resolution.

Eugene L., Newegg
1 September 2011
  • Summary: Still looking for a large sensor camera that will double as a still and video camera. The video performance has been improving in the last two years but at least with the G3 not quite there yet. And it must have build in EVF and flash.
  • Pros: Camera takes very good still pictures, larger sensor makes a big difference compared to P/S cameras.Menu easy to navigate.Video S/N is very good compared to a Canon HG21 under low light conditions, but resolution even with lots of light is a mediocre 600 horz lines compared to a solid 800 (resolu...
  • Cons: poor video resolution, compared to a dedicated HD video camera. Bit rate only 17mb.

not happy

Amazon Customer, Amazon
9 August 2013
  • 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...

Not UK stock

  • 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: Good camera spoiled by surely the most feeble battery ever to be used in a digital camera. My battery spends more time in the charger than in the camera.

A good sensor, smaller and lighter than a SLR but not as versatile as a Cannon

A. J. Roberts, Amazon
18 September 2011
  • 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.

Kaufempfehlung: Garantieverlängerung nicht vergessen

Gerd13, Amazon
3 November 2014
  • Summary: Über Vor- und Nachteile der G3 wurde schon reichlich berichtet. Aus eigener Erfahrung möchte ich jedem Käufer einer Lumix G (gleich welche) eine Garantieverlängerung empfehlen. Denn bestimmte Teile geben auch bei äußerst pfleglicher Behandlung nach 2 bis 3 Jahren ihren Geist auf und kulanzmäßig ist...

Gewöhnungsbedürftig, unscharfe Bilder

viktoria, Amazon
9 July 2014
  • Summary: Die Kamera liegt gut in der Hand und sieht sehr wertig aus. Was die Qualität der Bilder angeht, bin ich nicht überzeugt. Die Kamera habe ich kurz vor meinem Urlaub gekauft und habe in einer Woche ca. 500 Bilder gemacht, von denen nur 150-200 scharf geworden sind.

Compact camera with excellent image quality, but limited video operation.

Amazon user, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • 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.
