The new-age digital and SLR cameras are shutterbugs which come with a number of ingenious features and add-ons. However, the one which makes a significant difference is the one which scores ahead of performance and overall features that can make photography rather unique and novel. The Panasonic DMC-GH3 is one of the latest models to grab all the attention. It is essentially a followup to the wildly famous Panasonic GH2. The earlier model had earned a cult status among those who were enthusiastic about photography. It had also earned a healthy reputation with live motion picture photography buffs. The GH3 is expected to win over the same.
A First Look
Everything in the Panasonic DMC-GH3 is new and looking fresh and clean. This means that the camera has a brand new build, super-capable response sensor for shooting images and videos. The Autofocus system is also new and it will mean some positive changes for the photographers. The sensor effective resolution of the Panasonic camera is impresssive at 16.1 megapixels. This is less as compared the Sony Alpha SLT-A997 which offers a whopping resolution of 24 megapixels. Also, the lenses used in Sony offer far clearer and prettier images than this one. But Panasonic does fairly well with sharp images for you.
There must be some emphasis on the shooting features in the Panasonic DMC-GH3. The continuous shooting facility is particularly impressive in this new Panasonic model. At a single take, the DMC-GH3 can shoot up to 6 frames per second. This means that you can shoot images faster than you think. The continuous shooting feature is way better than that in models like Sony Alpha SLT-A997 and the Sony Alpha NEX-7. If you want an extraordinary shooting feature, you can use the Olympus OM- D E M5. This camera allows you to shoot about 9 images per second.
There is another area in which the Panasonic GH3 scores ahead of most other models in the variety. For instance, the camera has the H264 codec which allows the video shooters to move beyond the conventional limits of shooting videos in the AVI and CHD format. This special addition has made the Panasonic DMC-GH3 way ahead of most models like the Sony Alpha NEX-7 and the Canon EOS 6D. The person will be able to shoot brilliant quality 1080p images and videos. He will also be able to adjust a suitable quality of images and videos. Thus, such special features make the Panasonic GH3 camera really perfect for shooting videos.
The Last Words
While in most features Panasonic is surging ahead of Sony and Olympus, there is one aspect in which the Canon EOS 6D scores. The Wi-Fi connectivity in that model is superbly coupled with the iOS application that helps to adjust the image quality and settings from your smartphone. Sadly, this application feature is not in the Panasonic GH3 camera. However, other than this feature and some other minor glitches, people should not be disappointed when they buy the camera. So, you should have a try and use the Panasonic model for your special moments as well as for shooting videos and live-action moments.
