Editor's Review

Panasonic's GH line, ever since the GH1 came out in 2009, has catered to the growing market for high quality videography. The GH3 continues in this video-oriented tradition but no longer offers the size benefit of its predecessors. The new magnesium-alloy and weather-sealed body is now the size of a mid-range DSLR. Whether this is good or bad is a personal choice, but the video options are undoubtedly an improvement. There's a ton of processing power behind going on behind the scenes, enough to shoot 1080/60p at 72mbps (an output only bested by Canon's 5D Mark III). There are two new compression options, All-I and IPB, and the addition of H.264 format. The innards have been upgraded to a 16 megapixel Live MOS sensor, powered by three cored Venus 7 engine that enables the high data output. Other upgrades include new 3-inch OLED swivel touchscreen, OLED viewfinder, 6fps continuous burst, built-in wireless, 3.5mm mic socket and more external controls. If you're a videographer, you need to give this camera a good hard look.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 Reviews

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

Panasonic produces cameras that blend longer zoom ranges with image stabilization at a reasonable price. This undoubtedly helps the Panasonic digital cameras meet the needs of photographers who need versatility in small packages. Having something for amateurs and serious enthusiasts alike, Panasonic offers a wide range of digital cameras, from ultra compacts to mirrorless cameras. They can be difficult to compare since each camera comes with its own unique attributes and traits.

Panasonic cameras are very useful for people that like using automatic modes. Almost all Panasonic cameras made today include a feature called iAuto, which automatically selects the best scene mode for a given subject. This feature, combined with image stabilization will make it very simple for inexperienced photographers to take excellent photos.

Panasonic cameras are designed to be user friendly, providing the user with easy access to settings, and users that have reviewed Panasonic digital cameras are quick to acknowledge this fact. Should you purchase a Panasonic camera, you will find that it possesses an LCD screen, a versatile optical zoom lens, and is both lightweight and reasonably compact.

There are some excellent choices among Panasonic's cameras, most notably the Panasonic Lumix ZS20. A GPS tracker, a 20x optical zoom lens, and image stabilization that will make sure your pictures are steady even when you're using maximum zoom are several of the features that make this camera a popular choice. Panasonic has included manual modes but the automatic modes and iAuto mode make the camera a perfect choice for amateurs as well. Image quality is quite competitive, too, although not the best on the market.
