Bought mainly for its video capabilities, I really wanted a one camera solution so I can take photos and video without having to swap cameras all the time. The GH3 has amazing video ability as well as excellent still shots. It records in Full HD at up to 50 frames per second at high bit rates to get the best quality.

Some words from the reviewers:

  • 16MP Live MOS sensor with three-core Venus 7 FHD engine
  • Magnesium alloy body with weather sealing (dust and splash proof)
  • ISO 200-12800 (extended range of ISO 125-25600)
  • 6 fps continuous shooting
  • AF speed of 0.07 seconds
  • 1.7 million dot equiv. 16:9 ratio OLED viewfinder (873 x 500 pixels)
  • 614k dot 3" OLED rear screen (640 x 480 pixels)
  • Full HD 60p/50p video with 30p/25p option
  • MOV (h.264), MP4 and AVCHD formats
  • Video bit rates of 50Mbps in IPB and 72Mbps in All-I compression modes
  • Timecode support in MOV(H.264) and AVCHD formats
  • 3.5mm mic socket and headphone socket
  • Four channel wireless control for the optional DMW-FL360L external flash
  • PC socket
  • iOS and Android app control via Wi-Fi

I will have to post up some snap shots and video from it once I've mastered its very powerful, yet complicated interface!
