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.? :-(

    • Lion Dance Competition - Panasonic UX90 - 4K
      By Paulo Teixeira
      First 2 videos are in 4K 30p. Last video was shot in 1080p30. You see a little less noise in 1080p because of the crop and that's why I decided to shoot it in that mode. All clips done in fully automatic. Shutter was always at 60.

      By Paulo Teixeira
      I was lucky to have received a test unit of the Panasonic UX90 camcorder. I have it until the 28th of this month. I wrote a lot more in the description of the video. I can't wait to do more videos with this such as a Lion Dance competition coming up. 
       
    • GH4 Halloween Project - Black Joker
      By deezid
      Shot this on my GH4 in one night. Used some color foils on my cheap Yongnuo YN300 LEDs and my Panasonic 20mm 1.7 lens.
      Recording was done internally in 4K DCI VLOG 8 bit, so some artifacts are definitely there. Tried to create a dark, gritty but colorful look. Still in love with this small, little and reliable camera.

    • SALE/TRADE: Nikon d5200 for Panasonic G6 + 14mm 2.5 Lens
      By Matt Kieley
      I gave Nikon a shot, and got good results, but I just still aesthetically prefer Panasonic, so I'm hoping to find someone here who might want to trade their G6 for a D5200. It will include 1 Nikon battery, 1 Vivitar battery, 1 Nikon charger, 1 neck strap, and the Nikon 18-55 3.5-5.6 kit lens. I also have two Nikon Nikkor Ai primes: 28mm 2.8 and 50mm 1.4. I'd also like to get the Panasonic 14mm 2.5 lens. If someone wants to buy instead of trade, well that's fine by me too.
