Review: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3
Jarrod Wills | On 27, Dec 2013
Summer is upon us, and that means holidays!
Those few weeks off from work that allow us to travel somewhere beautiful, and make some exciting memories.
Which means you will need a good quality camera to capture such memories to look back on for years to come.
My choice professionally and leisurely is this year’s Panasonic version of the GH series, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3.
Panasonic’s main goal with the GH3, was to create a camera that didn’t need to be the size of a DSLR to perform like one.
Panasonic’s response to the GH2’s movie capabilities had resulted in this camera being integrated into professional video taking circles.
So for all those families, photographers, and filmmakers, this gadget could easily satisfy your needs this summer.
The shear size of this Micro Four Thirds camera and the similarities it has with a DSLR camera, makes this an ideal camera to take away on those short holidays over the festive period.
The dust and splash proof covering provides a camera suitable for all types of holidays, even around those naughty little toddlers!
With shots like the one above this Panasonic GH3 provides professional standard photos from a non-DSLR camera.
The GH3 itself will be available in three kit configurations ranging from the body only for $1599, as a single lens kit with the 12-35mm f/2.8 lens for $2999 and as a twin lens kit with the 12-35mm f/2.8 and 35-100mm f/2.8 lenses for $4999.
A pricy but worth while post-Christmas gift for yourself particularly if you’re willing to hang out for potential Boxing Day sales.
Overall I would give this camera an 9/10 considering it’s still only a Micro Four Third camera.
I encourage you to grab this camera before you go away these holidays, if you’re looking for good quality and ideal for lightweight travelling or simply to capture those special moments amongst friends and family.
