Best cheap viewfinder for Panasonic GH3

8 posts in this topic

Composing my ultimate GH3 to go set. Bought the camera, decided on my audio set and now I'm looking for a cheap but good viewfinder for the GH3 (and then the rig and follow focus will follow).

 

I saw a lot already on the web but has somebody experiences with a good and cheap vieuw finder for the GH3?

 

Thanxs a lot!

I can't comment on the best, but I can tell you to stay away from the Marshall 5". It was the biggest piece of garbage. I couldn't get rid of it fast enough.

Emm over at ChessyCam told me the viewfinder on the GH3 is sharper the the Zucato EVF, one doesn't really need  a lcdvf unless one really needs the extra point of contact...

Yes, it's true that the GH3 LCD is fantastic, but I would love to have a

 

LOUPE EX-SUPPORTER GH1/GH2—style loupe for it. I have practically begged them for such a product, but have not had a response.

 

One can only hope and pray... or, maybe petition them en-masse?

Yesterday I wanted to stick the frame to my Panasonic GH3 and noticed that my screen doesn't close anymore when I stick the frame to my camera. Not sure yet if I'm going to send the LCDVF viewfinder back or try the option of make the frame 50% thinner.

    • My Panasonic GH3 arrived - for my documentary film project about a motorcycle club - tips needed!
      By Ramirez
      Hello all! I am new here, so this is my first post/thread here ever. 
       
      Today I got my Panasonic Lumix GH3. Before I have used Olympus OM-D E-M5 and Fujifilm X-E1/X100s for video recording. I have never used a camera that allows me full control during video recording before.
       
      I ordered the GH3 because I am going to make a documentary movie about a motorcycle club during this coming summer. They ride together every Monday during the summer period. I am going to follow them.
      I am going to record video from the places they visit, maybe some video during their rides. Making interviews etc.
       
      During autumn after the season is over - I am going to edit the movie and burn it to DVD:s. Then sell the movie to the members of the motorcycle club (a few hundred members). 
       
      The selling point of this documentary is the nostalgic value. It does´t need to be the most professional looking movie. But I would like to make it as good as I possible can.
       
      I have a few months to prepare myself, training video recording with the GH3.
       
      I would love to get some tips of what I need for this project. Rigs (for walking), shotgun mics etc.?
      I live in a PAL-area; what frame rates are recommended; 24p, 25p, 50p for different situations (interview, motorcycles moving...)? In full manual does it go the double shutter speed over the framerate (like 1/50 for 25p etc.)?
       
      All tips are deeply appreciated!
    • Olympus EM5 vs Panasonic GH3! Need your opinion/help!
      By JackHorror
      Olympus EM5 body costs: 800€
      Panasonic GH3 body costs: 1200€
      Both are shooting 60fps both have 16mp sensor.
       
      I believe that Olympus EM5 is the best camera for that price & that  it has the same video quality with the Panasonic GH3 (i am telling that cause i've seen a lot of compares), correct me if i am wrong!
       
      Here is a very nice Olympus EM5 video

    • Sennheiser MKE400 on Panasonic GH3 - audio distortion problem
      By Wit
      Today I had an extensive testing of the Sennheiser MKE400 microphone with my Panasonic GH3. I tried it in different settings (Highering and lowering the audio gain in and outside the camera) but it came with a disappointing sssss noise. When I used the mic with my Zoom H1 it was still there but lesser.
       
      Anybody knows what's causing this and got a solution? Thanx!
       
    • Panasonic AG-AC90 or Panasonic GH3, WHAT I got , YOU opinion
      By com21
      Alright, not sure if this is the right forum but, I recently just got a GH3 , I do mostly VIDEO, I film alot of skateboarding about 60 percent and then short movies/docs/video/ the other 40 percent.  I am an old vx2000 user for like 10 years and thought it was time to upgrade. I been researching for weeks and decided to get a GH3,  My question is should I have i gotten a panny ag-ac90 insted?
       
       This was my reasoning,   For years i kept hearing and seeing how good the gh2 was, and how nice the quality was. i saw alot of pro filmers starting to use dslr's granted they prolly use mark 3's but whatever, I saw many tests were it was a gh3 vs the ag-ac90, and they looked just about the same , the ag-ac90 was about 800 dollars more but i would need 2 lenses for my gh3 for they even out in price.
       
      I understand that the Ag-ac90 is an easier SHOT and GO, and the has XLR, and an adapter for gh3 is more $$$$ like 300, but all the seperate videos and short films i kept watching for both cameras, the GH3 BESTED the ag-ac90 easly quality,  un color corrected and color corrected I could not understand why,
      WHy dslrs have such good quality when cameras made just for filmimg can't keep up.
       
      So in my NOT PRO opinion i got the gh3, it just shipped yesturday. IF u take away the shot and go, and the better sound controls ( i don't really mind taking time to set-up ) DID i make the right choice.   Also as there was a awsome hack for gh2 that made it super sweet, i am hoping sometime within the year the gh3 would get one that would make it even more better.    Opinions Please?
      sorry for making you read all this,  --Alex--
