(FT5) First image of the new Panasonic GH3! | 43 Rumors
a lot of emphasis in video +plus dslr size = not for me.
Looks to be a very versatile machine.

Awesome, I was just saying earlier tonight I wish they'd hurry up an announce the GH3, I'm holding off on a purchase waiting to see what the official specs on the GH3 were. Looks like a slick GH2 update so far.
Interesting how Sony and Fuji are going the opposite direction--cramming APS-C and FF sensors into every shrinking bodies, while Panasonic is making their already 'big' m43 camera even bigger. I know there's demand for this because I read it in the forums all the time, but I wonder how much.
It is a thing of beauty!
For the first time, a Panasonic m4/3 camera is getting me really excited, but that GH3 - E-M5 combo will be really bulky to carry around, and I am not ready to swap my E-M5 for it...
...wish the E-M5 has better video capability, focus peaking, and better compatibility with some of the Panasonic lenses. That would have quenched my thirst (for a while longer at least)...
wow, it's nice to see Panasonic keeping the megapixels at 16. if i was doing videos, i will jump at this.
the 20mm with the GH3 + vertical grip looks awesome!
It's almost like a Four Thirds body re-booted....
The way Panasonic USA chops the music (start-stop) makes me wonder if a 3rd grader did the sound for the promo vid.
I am impressed with what I'm seeing so far in terms of specs and body design. I've never shot with a micro 4/3 but I think this will be my next kit. I not only like the compact design (compared to DSLR's) but Panasonic has a very nice selection of lenses. It's nice to the 12-35 2.8 and the upcoming 35-100 2.8 zooms for this system. When I look at a comparable lenses from my previous Nikon kit Panasonic's prices aren't too bad.
The GH3 with battery grip still looks smaller than my D300 without a grip.
Wow, looks sexy!
typed on my phone, sorry.
I must be the only one looking at the video and pics that doesn't think this thing is that big... it looks like a GH2 with a more rounded handgrip and a battery grip attached to the bottom. Remove the grip and it's what, an inch taller than the lens mounted on it? Look at the video of it in use, especially where the battery grip is off; it just doesn't look huge to me
Anyway... I'm most interested to see what they've done with the sensor. If it's another rebranded GH2/G3/GX1 sensor I'm not sure I am willing to shell out for one versus a G5 or something else. If Panasonic delivers on the "wide dynamic range" promise (better noise performance wouldn't hurt either) AND the focus peaking, ergonomics, weather-sealing etc. then I think I'm probably sold.
It looks like they are knocking this out of the ballpark. I'll still be getting an E-PM2, because it'll be 1/3rd the price or less and I don't need as much camera as the GH3 will be, but wow! This camera is screaming out for enhanced 4/3rds compatibility.
Olympus's next OM-D series camera is going to have to be amazing to remain competitive.
An amazing m43 body without the omd lens issues! I predict an em5 price drop.
typed on my phone, sorry.
Screenshot of back. Fn4?
It would be awesome if Panasonic implemented wireless flash control in the GH3...
Awesome, I was trying to make that out in the video but it was too blurry here. Looks like 3-4 physical Fn buttons, the three control dials, AFL/AEL, plus the focus mode selector switch. This is looking better and better!
Judging from the video and pics, I don't think it is that big a camera body either. It's probably around the same dimensions as the GH2. If you compare it with something like an E-5, it is absolutely miniature. Unfortunately, a GH3 - E-M5 combo is still too bulky for my preference...
