Movie Focused High End Panasonic GH3

Movie Focused High End Panasonic G-H3 Camera Panasonic DMC-GH3 movie-focused high end mirrorless camera featuring a 17.02 megapixel Micro four thirds Live MOS digital sensor and a Venus 4-CPU Engine, which enables the GH3 to acquire high resolution RAW and JPEG still images along with intricately detailed HD movies. The GH3 was totally reengineered featuring a new range of professional level attributes which includes a contrast AF system, a magnesium alloy body which is sealed, OLED displays for the rear LCD monitor, Full-All -Area Focusing and electronic viewfinder.

The front and back curtains of the shutter system in the GH# are both electronically driven for vibration-free performance. This assures sharp still-life photos and landscapes without pixel shifting. When it comes down to still pictures, the imaging capabilities of the GH3 are additionally enhanced by an auto high dynamic range function, a newly engineered low-pass filter plus being compatible with an expanding family of Lumix G lenses.

Substantial advances were made in the video operation also. In addition to sustaining a wide array of recording configurations, the GH3 contains a exclusive heat-dispersing layout, for drawn out continuous use. Its specifications compare with those of numerous professional video cameras, assuring that it will meet with the requirements of demanding field production- Sep 17, 2012 ✓
