Summary: Panasonic Lumix has a big problem (or rather their customers do) because none of their cameras last longer than two years. I had a G1 that developed a loose mode dial after two years and I would get an error message every time I tried to shoot.
Summary: Love the camera when it was working, hate the customer service. I bought this camera in early 2013 and absolutely loved it. Great camera. It stopped working in Dec. 2014. I started getting an error message "Please turn the camera off and back on again" after every picture.
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.
Excerpt: Pros: • NO time limits recording video • Nice swivel screen • Well made & ergonomic designed body • Excellent touch screen feature • Headphone sound monitoring output • Excellent video and photo image quality • Lens diversity and flexibility with ability for adaptation for film, cinema or TV lenses...
Pros: Good Image Quality, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Cons: Noisy At High ISO, Poor In Low Light, Small LCD Screen
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.
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
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.
