Never knowingly undersold

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.

The image stabilisation on this camera is Lens Only.

Lenses & Cases
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. Click here to browse our selection.
