The new Panasonic Lumix GH3 is making the rounds. This time, it lands squarely in the hands of The Camera Store’s Chris Niccolls, who put’s the camera through it’s paces in a hands on review.
Here’s what The Camera Store says: The Panasonic GH2 was enormously popular for its great still abilities, combined with astonishing video quality for the price. The new GH3 ups the stakes again, but with so many very capable competitors, can it still stand out? The Camera Store’s Chris Niccolls takes a look at how the latest Micro 4/3 camera holds up.
Our take: On the whole, more positive feedback about the GH3. Not a lot of negatives here and some of them can be taken care of with firmware updates (for example, it’s rumored that Panasonic may add focus peaking at some point in the future).
Update: There’s a GH3 with updated firmware on it’s way to MC contributor Will Crockett (DiscoverMirrorless.com) as we speak (along with the two new Panasonic Lenses)… and Will, along with our Chicago based photo/video colleagues, are getting ready to take the GH3 out for a spin. Can’t wait to see what Panasonic have added with the latest firmware update. Stay tuned!
