Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 Review

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3The Lumix DMC-GF3 is Panasonic's third 'pocketable' compact to employ the Micro Four Thirds standard it co-developed with Olympus. Announced in June 2011, it comes only seven months after the GF2, and like that model packs a large sensor into a small body with a removable lens mount.
Like the GF2 before it, the most obvious difference is a reduction in size and weight over the previous model. The earlier GF2 was 19% smaller and 7% lighter than the original GF1. Now the Lumix DMC-GF3 becomes 16% smaller and lighter than the GF2 to become the smallest and lightest interchangeable lens camera with a built-in flash. Indeed while the earlier GF2's lens mount protruded slightly above the top of its body, the GF3's shorter height has seen it become even more pronounced. Panasonic has made a feature of it, with a new rounded top to the body, which, with other gentle curves, gives the GF3 a much more organic look than its boxy predecessors. The GF3 is also available in black, white, red, brown and pink.
Like its predecessor, the Lumix DMC-GF3 is almost entirely operated using a 3in / 460k touch-sensitive screen, and following other recent Lumix cameras, you can not only tap the subject you want to focus on in photos, but also during movies. This lets you easily 'pull' focus between subjects by simply tapping them, a process which would require precision manual adjustments on a traditional DSLR. Like the GF2 before it, you can record Full HD 1080i video in AVCHD format, or 720p in Motion JPEG. Panasonic has also upgraded the AF system to be quicker than before, although unlike the recent Lumix G3, the sensor resolution remains 12.1 Megapixels.
