Introduction

The G3 is yet another step by Panasonic in their attempts to bring the Micro to the whole of their Micro Four-Thirds line, shrinking yet another G-series camera down by a significant margin. The Panasonic G3 offers a compact metal body, 16-megapixel CMOS image sensor, articulated high-resolution rear LCD, full hot shoe, and electronic viewfinder, at a decidedly entry-level price point of $700 with lens included. The G3 is available June 2011 in black, brown, white, and red.
