    Hey guys, I'm quite a video noob.

    I have the RX100III and recently got gifted a GH3. I do very little video, but with a baby on the way, the RX100III was my option for filming quick videos. Now that I have the GH3, how does the video quality compare for someone who will most likely just shoot quick videos with minimal editing/post processing (if any)... The sony RX100 iii now has full sensor readout, so quality would be comparable? Am I close here or does the GH3 totally blow the RX100 III out of the water, even for basic videos?

    (My main stills camera is the EM-10/RX1)

    The GH3 will likely be slightly better but Sony has some really great video output, and a very fast lens if you're not zoomed in too far.

    If you have a fast lens for the GH3, then it's ahead, otherwise the RX100III's combo of small size, fast lens will win. Most of the time, you probably can't tell the difference.

    The difference will be battery life, the GH3 will go on forever.
