Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3

neocamera.com
11 May 2013
  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 takes over the GH2 as Panasonic's flagship mirrorless camera. Its large body is weather-sealed and features triple control-dials among a plethora of buttons to make it efficient in use. The built-in EVF has been upgraded to 1.7 MP and the LCD to 610K pixels to improve viewing. Inside there is a new 16 MP LiveMOS sensor which delivers very low image noise and relatively good DR. Colors and rendition of details can be nice with some tweaking.
  • Pros: Very low image-noise until ISO 800, Excellent retention of details even at high ISO, Good metering system, Very fast autofocus, Short shutter-lag, Excellent EVF with Eye-Start sensor, Instant video recording start and stop, Highly customizable function buttons, Comfortable ergonomics, Generally well built, Excellent battery-life
  • Cons: Below average white-balance system, Below average shot-to-shot speeds, Modal WB, ISO and EC, Long, Wrong, Exposure-Priority, Lower-rear control-dial too recessed, Weak LCD hinge and memory door, Bulky and heavy compared to peers

  • Summary: The GH3 offers the best video quality of any camera we've ever seen and does a pretty good job of making it available to a wide range of users. This footage is available without external recorders, making it ideal for in-the-field shooting as well as more formal rigged-up setups. It's also a pretty handy stills camera with plenty of external controls, making it an impressively flexible package, overall.
  • Pros: Sensational video quality, Good stills image quality, Solid, sealed metal construction without the camera becoming too heavy, Lots of external control points, Plenty of customization, Caters well to both videographers and stills shooters, Good choice of framerates, bitrates and codecs, Comprehensive Wi-Fi settings and extensive control, Big battery with the option of battery grip for long shoots, Fast autofocus system for stills, Useful autofocus modes for video shooting
  • Cons: No focus aids available when shooting video, Electronic viewfinder has distinct color cast and disappointing optics, Noise reduction at high ISO rather clumsy, JPEG color response a little underwhelming, Wi-Fi can be awkward to set up

  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 is an excellent camera for video enthusiasts, but it's not the best all-around Micro Four Thirds camera that we've tested.
  • Pros: Excellent video quality and features. 6.2fps continuous shooting. Snappy autofocus. Sharp vari-angle touch-screen LCD. EVF. Built-in flash. Wi-Fi. Dustproof and splashproof design.
  • Cons: Pricey. Lags behind competition at high ISOs. EVF is choppy in low light.

Panasonic has improved the sensor and physical features of its flagship mirrorless camera, and also added battery-draining Wi-Fi

Good Gear Guide.au

  • Summary: The Lumix DMC-GH3 has all sorts of buttons and dials that can help you set the scene for your photos. If you use them correctly, you'll end up with images that are clean, highly detailed, and a pleasure to look at. You could also just plonk it in Intelligent Auto mode and let it do all the work for you, but that would go against the grain of the camera's design, which is meant to be a playground for pros and enthusiasts.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, Wide array of buttons and dials, Built-in EVF and flash
  • Cons: Exposure changes can't be seen on the screen immediately, Wi-Fi implementation is cumbersome

Panasonic Lumix GH3

Pocket Lint
10 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Feature-packed, the Panasonic Lumix GH3 is up there with the best Micro Four Thirds cameras, but it sure is a pricey purchase. It's even more cash than the Olympus OM-D, but in a more bloated and less "edgily" styled body. Will it woo the crowds already attached to DSLR brands? It's not necessarily a hard sell on paper, as there are features by the bucketload.
  • Pros: Video capture is as good as it gets, feature-packed, fast single autofocus, pinpoint autofocus mode, best continuous autofocus of any CSC we've yet seen, wireless and PC socket flash control, sturdy (internal) build, lots of lenses on offer
  • Cons: It's pricey, continuous autofocus won't quite match a mid-pro DSLR, no 1/48 180 degree shutter for cinematic capture, sensor not quite as capable as some APS-C competitors, plasticky appearing exterior, single SD card slot, no ISO 100 sensitivity

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3H

Wintech
3 September 2013
  • Summary: Em suma, a Panasonic Lumix é uma câmara que mostra ter um potencial enorme para oferecer a qualquer utilizador, mais, ou menos experiente, e que poderá ser explorada tanto de um modo mais casual como de um modo muito similar ao profissional, dadas as suas configurações. Contudo, este equipamento não deixa de ser um híbrido, e a sua inserção no mercado por parte da Panasonic acaba por estar algo indefinida, uma vez que coloca neste conjunto o valor de 2100€, equiparado a...
  • Pros: + Muito boa qualidade de imagem., + Menus simples e bem agrupados., + Ótima autonomia mesmo com uma utilização mais exigente., + Wi-Fi incorporado com definições para controlo à distância., + Vídeo Full HD e fotografias em RAW.
  • Cons: - Faltam modos panorâmicos e de cenário., - Pequenas lacunas no foco automático., - Flash incompatível com para-sol a curtas distâncias.

Panasonic GH3 — Тяжелоатлет среди беззеркалок

6 August 2013
  • Summary: Panasonic GH3 мне очень понравился. К этой камере нужно привыкать и в течении недели настраивать и перенастраивать все под себя, ведь в других камерах таких широченных возможностей кастомизации просто нет. Это идеальная камера для видеоблогеров и журналистов, которые не хотят себя ни в чем ограничивать и стремятся быть готовыми к любым условиям.
  • Pros: великолепная эргономика;, возможность настроить все под себя за счет 7 функциональных клавиш;, поворотный сенсорный дисплей;, скорость фокусировки;, возможность снимать в RAW с соотношением сторон 16:9 и 1:1;, режим picture-in-picture при ручной фокусировке;, качество видеоряда;, множество вариантов битрейтов, фреймрейтов и кодеков для видеозаписи;, возможность снимать видео с видоискателем;, наличие портов для наушников и внешнего микрофона;, скорость серийной съемки...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 Kit 14-42 mm (DMC-GF3X)

Absolut Photo
28 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Le kit proposé ici GF3 + objectif 14-42mm est en fait la version nouvelle de ce kit : en effet, le zoom qui se trouve associé au GF3 ( voir ici notre avis et les meilleurs prix sur le Panasonic GF3 ) est une version améliorée. Le GF3 a gagné en compacité après le GF2, et afin de rester dans cette logique, Panasonic a développé  un nouveau zoom qu'on pourrait dire pancake : le principe est qu'il possède une position repliée particulirement compact ; par ailleurs, pour...
  • Pros: Simplicité d'ensemble, Qualité d'image jusqu'à 1600 iso, Compacité de cette nouvelle version du zoom
  • Cons: Qualité d'images au delà de 1600 iso, Quelques lacunes comme l'absence de molette PSAM, Limitations en vidéo, Absence de zooming manuel (?)
