  • Summary: The GF3 is a camera that combines high image quality and access to advanced shooting options with a small form factor and simplified control layout. Enthusiasts may be disappointed with the relative paucity of direct controls, but the GF3 is a very easy-to-use camera that is capable of lovely...

  • Excerpt: Panasonic’s much-lauded line of GF continues its westward expansion with the new Lumix GF3 ($700) , and like the GF2 that came before it, the GF3 is even smaller and easier to use. Inside is a 12MP sensor with a faster processor for ultra-fast autofocus, built-in photo styles and processing filters.

  • Conclusion: The touch-screen Lumix DMC-GF3 is Panasonic's smalllest Micro Four Thirds camera. Its low-light performance and sharpness aren't on the same level as some competitors, but it is still a very capable camera.
  • Pros: Compact. Many lenses available. Speedy performance. Touch-screen display.
  • Cons: Slightly soft kit lens. So-so low-light performance. Large kit lens. No hot shoe or accessory port.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 Digital Camera Review

7 September 2011
  • Conclusion: There is little going against the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 digital camera other than a missed opportunity to upgrade an LCD screen used in previous models. However, the GF3 on so many fronts just gets it right.

Digital Camera Review
4 August 2011
  • Summary: Panasonic surprised just about everyone in the digital imaging industry by introducing the Lumix DMC-GF3 less than six months after the debut of the GF2. The GF3 is not the GF2’s replacement – the larger and slightly more complex GF2 (which is targeted primarily at photo enthusiasts) will remain in...
  • Pros: Versatile and compact, Feature rich, easy-to-use, Excellent image quality
  • Cons: Slight tendency to underexpose, Costs as much as entry-level DSLR
