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

I am liking the GH3 more and more now having just shot some proper footage with it in Berlin. Will upload Monday.

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.? :-(

    • Start of a New Years Resolution to shoot more with my GH4.
      By George Adamson
      My new years resolution for 2016 is to take my camera as many places as I can and make a monthly video summary!
      I had a little go at practising this last month in December, I didn’t film nearly as much as I would have liked but hopefully I’ll get better at it over the new year.
      Cheers for watching, I'll keep anyone who's interested up to date with how its going - it would be really cool if anyone's doing the same or similar to share their videos too. 
    • A7s 120p Short Test
      By zeemonkeeman
      Hey fellas!
      Recently ditched my 5D3 for A7s. Mostly because of low light stuff but also for better slomo capabilities.
      Yesterday I tried 120p for the first time but I totally forgot about the flicker and WB was on auto so it doesn't went too well.
       
      Any tips on shooting extreme slomo indoors?

      By Julien Miscischia
      Hi fox ! This is my last edit, a short film about freestyle snowboarding. A beautiful day in a marvelous park (La Clusaz) with the two killers Matteo Cuny and Nicolas Palladio. Top of the pop, we finished with a beautiful sunset. So glad and happy to have shot this.
