The high point of this model form Panasonic is its video capability. Using the MOV container and H.264 compression format, the GH3 offers full HD video recording at 50-72Mbps bit rate that is exceeded only by the Canon EOS 5D Mark III. It is also equipped with the whole set of conventional AVCHD compression options as well (including another Full HD 1080/60p setting with a 28Mbps bitrate). Further expanding recording versatility, the GH3 has the ability to shoot video using the MPEG-4 format, with options for Full HD, 720p, or standard-definition recording.

Three slow motion modes (80%, 48%, and 40%), a reliable autofocus system, time code output, and an external mic and headphone jack round out the GH3’s important video features.

And in still images it can shoot 16-megapixel images. With Panasonics Live MOS sensor and Venus Engine processor, it can shoot stills at up to roughly 6fps. You can shoot in standard 4:3, as well as slightly cropped 3:2, 1:1, or 16:9. ISO range is from ISO 200-12800. But the noise is visible after 1600. Another negative in this model is that this camera body has no IS so you have to pick your lenses with this camera cleverly for image stabilization.
