  • Pros: Very good photo quality, Terrific touch screen, Weather-sealed metal body, Built-in Wi-Fi

2 November 2012
  • Summary: Operationally, the GH3 has come on a long way from the GH2. With a larger handgrip, improved arrangement of buttons, bigger battery and superb touch screen we don’t have any regrets in saying the GH3 is one of the most intuitive CSCs we’ve used.
  • Pros: The LCD display is one of the most responsive we've used, High-speed 6fps continuous shooting, Comprehensive set of video functions, solid and robust build quality
  • Cons: Electronic viewfinder could be sharper at the edges, Camera occassionally locks in playback mode (new firmware is expected to correct this), No option to star rate your images in-camera
