Product information

The Panasonic DMC-GH3 is much more than just an impressive still picture camera, it’s also capable of recording breathtaking Full HD movies, Wi-Fi connectivity and advanced autofocus. Easy to hold and compact, the GH3 has over 16 megapixels and offers an ISO range of 200-25600; perfect for darker photo shoots or capturing vast landscapes.

This camera also comes with a LUMIX G X VARIO 12-35mm Power OIS lens that gives you the versatility to shoot anything from detailed wide angles to intimate portraits.

Key benefits:

  • The DMC-GH3 features a 16.05-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor with wide dynamic range that produces flowing gradation from shadows to highlights. The Venus Engine also processes stills and video signals with exceptional clarity. High-sensitivity ISO 12800 (extended: ISO 25600) and extensive noise reduction also give you remarkable images, even in dim lighting. The newly designed low-pass filter goes further: suppressing moiré while maintaining high resolution.
  • The DMC-GH3 handles a range of recording formats, frame rates, and bit rates (72 Mbps/50Mbps) for broadcast quality output. It’s capable of recording Full HD videos in AVCHD, AVCHD Progressive and MOV with seamless file generation, as well as MP4. The heat-dispersing design also enhances video shooting and enables extended recording time.
  • Tough enough to take anywhere. The DMC-GH3 features a lightweight magnesium alloy frame and splash/dustproof design.
  • More control at your fingertips. The user-friendly button layout and five function buttons enhance your shooting ability. It also offers wireless function including live control and auto backup. For even more options, there’s a range of separate accessories available including a battery grip.
  • This camera features Light Speed AF for higher accuracy even at small f-numbers. This enables quick focus even on moving subjects. Combined with the full-area touch AF, you’re released from the focus point limitation and can set your focus on any point in your field of view.
  • A mode for every occasion. In video recording, you can choose Creative Video Mode. Exposure Mode let users select either of four manual video modes: Program AE / Aperture-Priority / Sutter-Priority / Manual Exposure. The DMC-GH3 is also capable of quick-motion and slow-motion modes that apply a variety of effects to the video timeline.
  • The large, bright 3-inch OLED touchscreen allows for quick reviews of snaps and footage, easy setups and area sensitive autofocus. The electronic viewfinder is also fully OLED for sharp, naturally-frames shots.
  • Includes Lumix G X VARIO 12-35mm lens, lens cap, lens hood, lens rear cap, battery pack, charger, USB cable and software CD.

Feeling creative?

One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless.
