Panasonic’s New Lumix G3

By // May 13, 2011 // Posted in Cameras & Lenses, Gear & Equipment

Panasonic’s newest Micro Four Thirds cam is a mostly-incremental boost over its predecessor, the G2. But improved specs on an already solid base is good news. The G3 brings a new sensor, faster shots, less noise, and a touch-heavy interface.

We’ll get to that interface—but everything else is a numbers game. The G3 hops up to 16 MP from 12, doubles its autofocus speed, and boosts its continuous shooting mode to 4 FPS at 16 MP or 20 FPS at a fuzzier 4 MP. Noise reduction is also pumped up at higher ISOs, with particularly good color reproduction at these settings. Click here to read more.
