Introduction

The GF3 is the latest Micro Four Thirds camera from Panasonic, eagerly shedding even more size to become the most diminutive member of the company's small interchangeable lens camera lineup. The camera follows in the footsteps of the GF2—curiously released less than a year ago—offering a combination of touchscreen control and pocket-friendly size that will appeal to a wide variety of photographers. With higher quality options above it in Panasonic's lineup, the GF series has certainly put the enthusiast favorite GF1 behind it, squarely aiming for those stepping up from point-and-shoot cameras in search of better image quality. It is available in red, pink, brown, white, and black, as body-only or kitted with either a 14mm or 14-42mm lens option.
