OK… The video above is actually for the Panasonic Lumix GH2, which to this day is still one of the most powerful film-making machines on the market, and the camera of choice for numerous pro and indie film makers. This is all the more reason why we are so excited about the imminent launch of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 (expected to launch at or before Photokina, September 18th in Germany).
43 Rumors has obtained some specs for the new camera, and it looks like it’s going to represent a great leap forward in Hybrid Imaging!
Check out the specs below:
Photokina is getting closer and the new Panasonic GH3 is probably the “hottest” new Micro Four Thirds product. [Numerous] sources have contacted me saying that this is an incredibly nice camera, and very likely the first [mirrorless] camera that can be considered as “pro” level camera. It is aimed to compete against all high end DSLR, APS-C cameras like the Nikon D7000 or Canon 7D. But as we know well…we’ll have to see it to believe it
