The Camera Store‘s Chris Niccolls and Dave Paul put the Fuji X-E1 and the Sony NEX 6 to the test in a head to head shootout! The Camera Store writes:  If you’re looking for a small mirrorless camera with a viewfinder, the Fuji X-E1 and Sony NEX-6 are two of the best options out there. But which is the better choice for your style of shooting? Editor’s note:  Looks like the Camera Store guys came to the same conclusion that we did.  The X-E1 is a better stills camera while the NEX 6 is better for video and all around [More]
A day in Montmartre – [Panasonic Lumix GH3] from emeric on Vimeo. From 43Rumors – A little news about the Panasonic Lumix GH3: Our friends from Hybridcams shot that nice video with the GH3. Thanks for sharing! And our reader Twills sent me this: “The Panasonic GH3 specs page is being constantly updated as the firmware is finalized. The shutter duration spec did not specify a “Bulb” mode time limit before. Now it says it goes up to Approx. 60 minutes. That is great news as the GH2 is limited to 128 seconds in Bulb mode: Still Images: 1/4,000 – [More]
DigitalCameraInfo.com posted their review of the new Panasonic Lumix GH3. Here’s Some Highlights: The Panasonic GH3 is the Micro Four Thirds system all grown up, and it’s hard to argue that it’s not the best mirrorless system camera to date. While we’ve seen impressive performance from other bodies like the Sony NEX-7, and incredible styling and control in the Olympus OM-D E-M5, the Panasonic GH3 brings all of that together with some exceptional video quality to boot. The GH3 is smaller than a traditional entry-level DSLR, but only by a few millimeters here and there. In our opinion, though, it’s [More]

Here’s the skinny from EOSHD: In a joint shootout with Slashcam in Berlin, EOSHD put the Blackmagic Cinema Camera into a bear pit against all rivalling cameras between $500 and $4000. It was a clear day and the results are just as stark. Download the full 2.5K shootout video. Here’s my verdict on which camera you should [More]

MC Contributor Will Crockett (DiscoverMirrorless.com) answers another reader question, this time about the Panasonic Lumix GH2, which you can now get for about $750 USD with a kit lens ($650 Body Only) – this is a HUGE BARGAIN! Here’s what Crockett says:  The Lumix GH2 that we are so fond of here in my studio is being replaced by the highly touted GH3. That means the GH2 is now priced at closeout and really is a bargain. Our take:  The Panasonic Lumix GH2 has been one of the most celebrated cameras of the last two years since it debuted in [More]
The reviews of the new Panasonic Lumix GH3 keep rolling in.  The latest one is pretty in depth and comes from TJ Donegan at DigitalCameraInfo.com. Here’s TJ’s conclusion: The Panasonic GH3 is the Micro Four Thirds system all grown up, and it’s hard to argue that it’s not the best mirrorless system camera to date. While we’ve seen impressive performance from other bodies like the Sony NEX-7, and incredible styling and control in the Olympus OM-D E-M5, the Panasonic GH3 brings all of that together with some exceptional video quality to boot. Mirrorless system cameras are typically quite compact, but [More]
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 [More]
Andrew Reid of EOSHD.com posted his Real World Test of the Panasonic Lumix GH3. It’s a very in depth hands on review, but keep in mind that the camera he was using was a pre-production model (without the latest firmware), so any issues of moire and aliasing that are mentioned should be measured with a grain of salt until the final production model is tested. Here is Andrew’s summary: The Panasonic GH3 is a 90% successful update to the Panasonic GH2. Here’s a provisional list of significant pros and cons relative to the GH2. Better stills Better colour and dynamic range [More]
Mirrorless Central Creator Scott Giorgini (that’s me ~_^) explains his top 7 reasons why a video professional would choose a mirrorless camera system vs a DSLR to build out a home studio.  I discuss HD video, lenses, DSLR limits, size, features, cost and why he feels that mirrorless cameras are the wave of the future. Here’s my pick for the top Mirrorless Camera for Video Production… The Panasonic Lumix GH3
MC contributor Giulio Sciorio has dispatched some of his SmallCameraBigPicture crew to Photo Plus in New York, NY to see what’s up at one of the world’s largest photo/video industry expos, and here’s one of their first field reports. Alberto Lima gets the skinny on the Panasonic Lumix GH3 from Panny’s own Mark Toal (check out Mark on G+). The GH3 looks like it’s going to be an amazing camera for both stills AND video. Here’s Alberto’s report: We here at SmallCameraBigPicture truly believe that mirror-less cameras are not just a passing fad, but a trend that will dictate where [More]

(Test footage above shot by John @ Workstation with the Panasonic Lumix GH3.  Note – The camera used for this footage was using firmware version 0.5 and is not a final production model.  Hat Tip to 43Rumors for posting the video) PhotographyBlog posted their review of the new Panasonic Lumix GH3, and it seems they’re in agreement with everything else we’ve heard so far – The GH3 is on par with the finest cameras in terms of still image quality and blows everyone else out of the water where video is concerned. Looks like Panasonic have one serious imaging machine [More]
43Rumors posted this video-interview by Megapixel with Sebastian Drawert from Panasonic. Here are some bullet points from the interview: The huge success of the Lumix GH2 (the predecessor to the GH3) as a video camera was a surprise to Panasonic. The development of the GH3 was at least in part the result of a great deal of feedback from pro videographers. The GH3 abandons the multi aspect ratio sensor used in the GH2 in order to improve image quality according to Mr. Drawert . While the GH2 was a 60% video and 40% stills camera the GH3 is more of a [More]

Here’s their verdict:  The Panasonic Lumix [More]
ePhotozine got their hands on the final version of the new Panasonic Lumix GH3 and wasted no time putting it up against the Micro 4/3 Star of the last year, the Olympus OM-D E-M5. The GH3 is Panasonic’s new flagship Micro 4/3 camera, replacing the Lumix GH2, which is one of the most celebrated cameras of the last 2 years, especially for video makers. But just how will the new GH3 stand up against the vaunted OM-D? The video above is a low light test of the Panasonic GH3. Below is the low light test of the Olympus OM-D E-M5.   [More]
Above is a video test of a pre-production Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 captured at a London Zoo Press Event. Trusted Reviews previews the new Panasonic Lumix GH3 (watch their video preview here) and added to the chorus of positive reviews/previews/reports that we’ve been getting about this impressive new camera. In a nutshell, they say that the GH3 is on par with top cameras like the Olympus OM-D E-M5 for still photo quality, and it beats all comers for video. Here are some highlights of their preview: We’ve seen a steady improvement in the image quality provided by the micro four thirds [More]
An introduction to the Panasonic GH3 camera, shot at London Zoo press event. The new Panasonic Micro 4/3 Flagship Camera is slowly getting out into the hands of photo/video pros, and we’re hearing some great things about the GH3 so far. The GH3 boasts some very impressive specs and we believe that it just might live up to expectations, but consider this an open thread until this camera gets into our hands or the hands of one of our contributors.
Here’s the Fuji Guys in a Super Secret (at least, before September 6th 2012) Video going over the selling points of the new Fuji X-E1, the little brother to their flagship mirrorless camera, the X-Pro1 – and comparing it to the competition.   Namely, the Sony NEX 7 and the Olympus OM-D E-M5, two other high quality and extremely popular mirrorless cameras in the same price range. We’re really excited about the X-E1, which borrows a lot of technology from it’s big brother, the X-Pro1 – which we LOVE –  and the X-E1 shares a LOT of that camera’s features, including [More]
(From DiscoverMirrorless.com) Ira Block is an internationally renowned photojournalist, teacher, and workshop leader who has produced over 30 stories for the National Geographic Magazine and its affiliates – N.G. Traveler and Adventure – and recently, Ira was tasked with testing the all new Panasonic GH3. So he headed out into the Utah desert to put the camera through it’s paces. Ira captured some stunning images during his time in the desert (see the video of Ira’s expedition here), and they all looked great when viewed on a computer screen. But would the images captured on a small micro 4/3 sensor [More]
With all the fanfare surrounding the launch of the Panasonic Lumix GH3 just a few weeks ago, it’s worth noting that the camera it’s replacing at the top of the Panasonic lineup, the Lumix GH2, is STILL a KILLER video-making machine. Yes, the GH3 looks like an incredible camera, and judging from all the early reports coming in, it IS an incredible camera. But until it gets widely released sometime over the next few months, the Lumix GH2 was and still is the King of the Video Hill – and it’s the Go-To camera of numerous pro and indie video [More]
