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.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
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.
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?
Summary: I bought this Camera mostly for Videography, because the Olympus OM 5 is not the best in this field. I am now really surprised about the handling and the performance of this camera. It handles like a professional camera and not like a toy. Battery life is excellent compared to the Olympus.
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.
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
