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]
43Rumors posted some tasty little tidbits about some future M43 releases from Panasonic. According to their sources, we may have to wait until next fall for the new GX2 to be released (vs this month via earlier rumors). Here’s the skinny from 43Rumors:  Yesterday Panasonic announced the new MFT videocamera.

Back in Spring Panasonic itself said that: “We will define more clearly what GH and GX means this year, so [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.

Better stills Better colour and dynamic range [More]

I put my thoughts together in the post, What am I shooting this weekend? It’s not RAW and it seems like I’m not the only one that is a lover of JPEGS. As I stated in the article I think that the days of shooting RAW are numbered, but then again I also think that the days of HDSLRs are numbered too. The only way for me to find out if I took a cRaZy PiLl or not is to dive in and explore. That’s one [More]
When pro photogs got their hands on a pre-production model of the Fujifilm X-E1 at Photokina back in September, there were some questions about the quality of the EVF (Electronic Viewfinder), which seemed to be lacking at the time.  But was this due to the fact that the pre-production model sported an EVF that was somehow incomplete…  and has Fuji fixed the issue in their final production model? PetaPixel asks the same question in a recent post on their website… Here’s their take >> When we handled a pre-production model of the Fujifilm X-E1 at Photokina back in September, we [More]
