My (production model) GH3 test footage 'Stained Glass, Bare Wood'

Picked up the GH3 this weekend. I owned the GH2 since day one and was very impressed with it.
So far the GH3 has been even better, some of the best quality DSLR footage I've seen.

I'm looking forward to finding more about what this little camera can do.

Hi Mike, How's the Moire? Have they made improvements since 0.5?

P.S. The video is really nice. Thanks for that. :-)

Thanks very much guys :)

I had the hacked GH2 before this and I feel that the GH3 handles dynamic range and sharpness a little bit better.
I'll admit though it's not a huge leap when you consider the price difference.

However features like the headphone jack, OLED screen (which looks gorgeous, much easier to focus from), wi-fi functions and 1080 50fps shooting help justify the upgrade for me.
Not to mention what [i]could[/i] happen if the GH3 ever gets hacked!

Not too sure about the moire. I've noticed it on any of my shots, but I still need to shoot more to know for sure.

Looks great! The footage has some unique characteristics to it. Can't wait to get mine in a few weeks!

Weather sealing is a huge plus for me as well! Able to comment on low light/high iso performance yet? Would love to see a comparison to the GH2 and know if its improved

Still need to experiment more with low light shooting, but from the little bit I've done it feels cleaner at high ISO than the GH2 (hacked or not). I saw this video online yesterday, which shows off the high ISO performance:

Please note, I didn't shoot this!

Is it a crop mode in video settings in GH3 as it was in GH2?

Yes. That's in there, seems to work exactly the same as on the GH2.

Just got my email from Amazon today!! Shipped!

I wanted to see who would ship one the fastest so I preordered the first day from B&H, Amazon and Adorama. For some reason everything I preorder from B&H now is always released later than everybody else. I thought they were on top.? :-(

      The Panasonic LA7200 is an anamorphic adapter that creates a 1.33x stretch, so any camera shooting 16:9 will output a Cinemascope ratio for  footage for post.
      I used with my various lenses, Canon EF and FD, Olympus OM, Panasonic, Lomo ecc... It also includes the front and rear lens caps.
      This adapter uses the taking lens to focus and doesn't need an adapter. It's been a great lens for me to learn with and is great for making the foray into anamorphic shooting.

      Hi,
      I have long looked at this site and the forum for inspiration, it was one of the reasons i chose to get a GH4 to replace my old (and much loved) Canon 550d.. 
      I don't often make short films, mostly i film corporate films (with a DVX200), but recently my friend and i, had an idea for this little film.
      We filmed it over 2 days, and besides the GH4, some of the equipment used, was a Tamron 17-50 2.8 lens, Zhongyi Lens Turbo (focal reducer), some Yongnuo yn300 LED lights and lot of other things, like a variable ND filter, called Vu Scion (which is really good! It gives a really "natural" image.)
      I hope you like the film, and i really hope you will let me know what you think we can do better!

      This listing will include a 77-49mm step down ring and a 49-52mm step up ring that I used with my Canon FD 28mm (2.8) and 50mm (1.4) lenses as well as my Mir 37mm and Helios 58mm lenses. It also includes the front and rear lens caps.

      Please ask if you have any questions and I am open to offers. I am selling this item as/is with no returns.
