Panasonic’s Lumix GH3 digital single lens mirrorless camera has just picked up a Best Product gong in the 2013 European Imaging and Sound Awards (EISA), along with the Lumix G Vario 14-140mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / Power O.I.S. (H-FS14140) lens.
The Panasonic Lumix GH3 went on sale in Australia in January 2013. It’s a 16.05 megapixel camera, with a 3 inch OLED touchscreen, OLED Live View Finder, Live MOS sensor, built-in Wi-Fi and flash, and in addition to shooting stills it also records full HD video.
If help with getting creative is needed there’s a wide variety of scene modes to choose from, and art effects include Expressive, Retro, High Key/Low Key, Sepia, Dynamic Monochrome, Impressive Art, High Dynamic, Cross Process, Toy Effect, Miniature Effect, Soft Focus, Star Filter, and One Point Colour.
Of the Panasonic GH3, the EISA judging panel said this:
“The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 offers the best video quality of any combined still and movie camera in this price segment – and actually in some higher segments as well. It offers full manual as well as completely automatic video recording, making it ideal for in-the-field shooting as well as more formal situations. It’s also a pretty handy stills camera with a full range of controls, making it an impressively flexible package. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 is very popular with videographers partly because it is a very lightweight and rugged, weather-resistant camera that’s serviced by a great selection of high-quality lenses.”
