  • 42nd Street Photo Reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3

    Posted on September 7th, 2011 Staff Writer

    The Panasonic GF3 is a highly capable compact interchangeable lens camera with excellent image and video capture capability. The Panasonic GF3 is great camera for beginners that have been using point and shoot cameras and wish to upgrade to a DSLR. The GF3 has a lot to like about it. The GF3 is small really easy to use, capable of producing excellent images and has user friendliness in mind.

    The Panasonic GF3 includes a 14-42mm zoom lens.  It also has a fast maximum aperture of f/2.5, making the GF3 perfect for use in low-light conditions and easier to blur the background to help emphasize the main subject. In good light, shutter lag is 0.3 second, 0.6 second in low light. Flash recycling time is 1.6 seconds which is still pretty good and continuous shooting rate is a 3.9fps. The camera also includes a popup flash which is embedded above the lens. The GF3 also captures HD video. You can record up to 1080/60i videos in the AVCHD format.

    Items Included:

    •  Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH/MEGA O.I.S. Lens
