The best Hybrid Camera on the planet just got better…
New firmware updates are now available for the Panasonic Lumix GH3 and a pair of Lumix Lenses. It seems that Panasonic have now simplified Wi-Fi connections between the GH3 and both PC and MAC computers, as well as adding a new high res MP4 option for video.
