  • Excerpt: All around best VideoCam I've ever owned. Once I got my settings right, I have not had to touch them since. I am able to shoot slow moving subjects in poor indoor light unattended for over 90 minutes. However, this is definetly not even a good Action Camera. I am looking forward to testing the GH4 for stills.

Not perfect

Sheriff Boss Suzuki, B&H Photo
14 May 2013
  • Excerpt: There's a lot of buzz about this camera. It's tiny compared to a Canon 5D. The prime lenses are the size and weight of Yo-Yo's or shot glasses. All of the video features are cool and very nice to have right there in camera. But the picture quality is not as good as the 5D with its huge sensor. The 5d's shallow depth of field is stunning. The battery and memory chip doors are prone to accidental opening just by rubbing your hands on them too hard.
  • Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO, Small LCD Screen

Seems OK

Dennis from LA, B&H Photo
23 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I have this cool little camera. And it "is" small, like a Canon Rebel or something. First complaint: batteries are so expensive! $80 a pop! I'm still trying to figure out the most effective way of focusing with the GH3. I've tested various methods, but there doesn't seem to be anything that's amazing. For example, I went to downtown LA and played around with the auto-focus tracking feature. When it's engaged, a little red box begins to float around on the touch screen.
  • Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Small / Compact

Mixed bag

Overhere2000, Adorama
12 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Camera is solidly built. Interface is a bit messy and over relies on dials. Although the touch sensitive screen is an interesting feature; it does not take full advantage of the feature.Image quality is very acceptable under 400 ISO, however begins to show quite a bit of noise over 800 ISO.
  • Pros: Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact
  • Cons: NOISY, Poor Flash

Quite bad in low light. Did not meet my high expectations.

J. Fuller "BlinxMedia", Amazon
17 March 2014
  • Summary: I was expecting so much more in this camera. It struggles in low light at high ISO and I only bought it because I heard good reviews but I learned after buying that the high reviews were very misleading. Video quality in good lighting can look gorgeous but I recommend you do not film live bands if your in a dark room with minimal lighting. Also filming performances in a pub is a NO NO!

Videographers Only Need Apply, Photographers Look Elsewhere.

Pro recordist, Amazon
9 May 2013
  • Summary: I borrowed this camera to use, recently, at a wedding shoot. I was pleased with the results I achieved, overall image quality more or less on a par with image quality from a cheaper Olympus OM-DEM-5, and of semi professional quality. While this camera will greatly appeal to videographers ( at this price point there's little competition ), I must point out that the EVF ( electronic viewfinder ) was terrible, and focussing in low light was erratic.
