Panasonic Lumix GH3 Digital Camera Review$1,299.00
The GH3 includes a physical mode dial for flipping between shooting modes quickly, with all the typical PASM setting, automatic modes, creative modes, manual video control, and three custom shooting modes. Whether you want to set everything yourself or let the camera do the heavy lifting, the GH3 has your back.
The GH3 is capable of firing off a shot at up to 1/4000th of a second with its physical shutter, or 1/16000th of a second when capturing video. If you need a longer shutter speed you can have shots as long as 30 seconds, or use the camera's bulb mode to capture exposures as long as 60 minutes. Aperture is lens dependent, but can be fully controlled from the camera body, as you'd expect. Manual control is available in the manual mode for still shooting, but you can control exposure while recording in video using the dedicated manual video function, including aperture.
RAW and JPEG shooters alike will get quite a bit out of the GH3, with a maximum resolution of 16 megapixels. The camera allows you to shoot at the default 4:3 aspect ratio, with options for 1:1, 16:9, and 3:2 shooting. It's not a multi-aspect sensor, though, so you're getting a cropped version of the 16-megapixel 4:3 image in other aspect ratios.
