  1. My short "review" or rather first impressions of the GH3:

    - Video (codecs, manual control etc.)
    - Ergonomics (at least for me); I love the grip and all the buttons!
    - Touch/Swivel display
    - Weather sealing

    - Image quality on the photo side of things

    Would like to have (like the G6, GX7)
    - Focus peaking

    My conclusion:

    For me the GH3 is a great videography and hybrid photography tool.
    I am going to use this camera mainly for the video side of things (for photos I have my Fujifilm X-E1 and X100s, and Olympus OM-D E-M5).
    My GH3 will mainly be tripod-mounted or on a rig for stabilization. The camera complement my other cameras perfectly as they aren't as good for hybrid or strictly video.
    I am greatly satisfied after the first week with the GH3. It surpassed my greatest wishes for it, the wishes I had before it arrived.

  2. Thank you for the review!

    I have had the GH3 for about a week now and I absolutely love it!
    I have a little problem with holding the camera stabilized though (as I have only non stabilized lenses) so I just ordered the Sevenoak Shoulder support rig SK-R01 (only 79€).
    I also use a good video tripod.
    But I fully agree of your review!
    To me it is the best hybrid camera for a reasonable price.

  3. 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!
