Amazing Video Okay Stills

Hank5, B&H Photo
2 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I love this camera for video. The quality of the image is amazing. Panasonic has done it again. However, the stills are not quite up to the quality I'm used to (Canon). They are usable but not quite there yet. Not problem for me as I've kept all of my Canon glass and equipment. The touch screen, the ability to customize your shooting profiles, the high bit rate for video makes this a tremendous value and worthwhile investment. Get it you won't regret it.
  • Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
  • Cons: Not A Good Stills Camera

An improvement but not quite there.

User J, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I use this camera mainly for video but photos seem to look nice also. I used to have the GH2 but I became an early adopter when the GH3 arrived. The largest draw for my switch was the weatherproofed body! The second draw were separate inputs for audio out and audio in. But there's a lot more to love abot this camera.<br /><br />**Before you read further, I really do enjoy this camera even though this review may seem negative.
  • Pros: Battery Life, Customizable, Good Image Quality, Improved Dynamic Range, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Seperate Audio Ports, Tilt /Swivel LCD, Weatherproofing
  • Cons: No Focus Peaking, Noisy At High ISO, No Live Focus Assist, Poor In Low Light, Weird Trimming Of Audio

Great Video AF and good stills if shooting RAW

O. Rascon, Amazon

  • Summary: The GH3 has to be one of the most fun cameras to use (I've shot with Pro Nikon gear for years). I shoot weddings and family portraits both in studio and outdoors. The GH3 just WORKS! The AF is super fast and super accurate and the touch screen is simply a joy to use. So why the 4 stars? I'm a stills shooter and not a video guy. Shooting jpgs on the GH3 just wasn't an option for me. The jpgs from this camera look like grabs from a video file, so low quality.

  • Excerpt: I finally pulled the trigger on the GH3 just before Christmas 2013. I have the Panasonic G1, Gh2 and now the GH3. I shoot landscape and architectural fine art photography in Europe (I'm American). First, this camera is a big step up from the GH2. Faster autofocus, dynamic range and a professional feel with the optional battery pack. I does not incude focus peaking but that is NOT a priority to me. And of course the video on is without doubt is sublime.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
  • Cons: Poor Image Stabilization, Stabilization Lens Based

  • Excerpt: Being a loyal Canon user, and doing more videography than photography these days, and not being able to afford the 5D3, I bought the GH3 for videography, but also read comments how it is sufficient for photography. For videography, it definitely shines. For photos though, it was a very disappointing experience. Working with Adobe Camera Raw, the colors on people's faces seemed pasty, saturated, and unnatural. The midtones had no range.

Beautiful Photos

  • Excerpt: I haven't had the camera very long, but from what I've shot I can tell the pictures are fantastic. I'm not a photography pro, so it makes up for what I lack. Love that it connects to my phone via wifi!

  • Excerpt: I have had GH3 about an year now and I think it is time to share my experiences. I have been shooting videos more than photos but i take a lot of photos too. Counter says about 46 000 files now. At first I can say it is a workhorse. It has been served me very well and I am generally happy with its ergonomics and photo/video quality. There are of course cons and pros.

A mostly great camera

Gordon, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This is my first MFT camera, and it is very good. There are a couple of things that I have had difficulty with, however. The control dial on the back is partially buried on the right side by the camera body, making it difficult to turn the dial when holding the camera and using the viewfinder. The right cursor button is also hard to reach due to the same issue.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance
