Panasonic have just announced the GF3 and EOSHD believes it marks the point where customers see through the compact ‘step-up’ Kool-Aid they’ve been sold. Just as in Hollywood after a series of bad 3D movies, customers have had enough.

The video itself that the above frame (click it to enlarge) was taken from is awful so I will spare you it – a slideshow of a pop-star photo-shoot, it does however show off the new Panasonic GF3 in all it’s glory on YouTube. What do we know so far?
Sony are set to unveil their next generation of high-end enthusiast DSLR – the A77, successor to the Alpha A700. Is Canon about to get some competition in the APS-C video DSLR world? Rumours suggest the A77 soundly beats the 7D, 60D and others – even the GH2. Lets explore what next month’s 7/7 announcement of the Sony A77 will deliver…
The WOC guys and Jared Abrams are at Cine Gear 2011, and they snagged Steve Weiss of Zacuto. He’s rigged up the Panasonic GH2 in a Guerilla Filmmaking rig. Watch the video above. Looks great!
Nikon have just shot their D5100 TV commercial on the D5100 itself.
A few years late to this game but at least they are doing it properly. No jumpsuited gimps in this one like the GH2 commercial shot on a 5D, just Ashton Kutcher… Oh wait.
But behind the camera was one of my favourite DPs of all time – Matthew Libatique, none other than Darron Aronofsky’s Director of Photography. He’s best known for DPing Black Swan and Requiem For A Dream – both modern classics.
