New Panasonic GH2 review at Quesabesde (US: Panasonic GH2 in Stock status)

Quesabesde reviewed the Panasonic GH2. The biggest complain they have is the lack of a headphone output that allows to monitor the incoming audio from the camera. But all thre rest of the review is very positive. The Gh2 is the best hybrid video/still camera on the market. And it will become even better once it gets hacked! Click here to follow the official GH2 “Stalin” hack development topic.

And now for US readers: Announced in September 2010 the Panasonic GH2 is finally “constantly” in Stock in US stores by late May 2011 (it took 8 months):

Black GH2 with 14-140mm lens at Amazon (Click here) and Adorama (Click here).

Panasonic G3 beats the GH2 at High ISO, but has lower DR. (+ GH2 US stock status)

That was fast! You can already see the G3 sensor performance test results at DxOmark (Click here). Overall the Gh2 is still a bit better (reminder, we are talking about the RAW sensor performance). But at high ISO the G3 beats the GH2 with a very small advantage!

Obviously the GH2 is a much better camera when it comes to handling and video quality! But the G3 is really a nice camera if you consider that it is considerably cheaper. If you don’t want to wait to much before to get the G3 you should preorder now by clicking those direct links:
In US: Amazon, Adorama, J&R.
In Europe: Amazon UK, Amazon DE.

And as I told you yesterday US readers can finally buy the GH2 because it is in Stock!
Right now eight black GH2+14-42mm kits are in Stock at Amazon US (Click here).
Two silver GH2- 14-42mm kits are in Stock at Amazon US (Click here).
And all GH2 kits will be in Stock on May 31 at J&R (Click here).

Panasonic G3 is the best Panasonic camera ever made -> says Trustedreviews! (+First SLRmagic 11mm f/1.4 test)

SLR Magic Toy Lens 11mm 1:1.4 on GH2 : the daylight tests from Seb Farges on Vimeo.

This is the very first test of the new SLRmagic 11mm f/1.4 lens. Recorded with the GH2 at 160 ASS (640 ASA in the church). The lens costs $129 and is available for preorder in eBay (Click here).

Trustedreviews (Click here) made a complete Panasonic G3 test and said: “Overall, we remain mightily impressed by the specifications, handling, performance and overall image quality of the G3. Having spent some extended shooting time with it, we’re confident enough to say that it’s Panasonic’s best G-series model yet.” You can see the high-ISO samples on page six (Click here). The camera earns an overall rating of 9/10!

Preorder the G3 at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay.

ISO 3.200 images of the Panasonic G3 (looks nice)

You can find a couple of 3.200 ISO images on the korean SLRclub forum (Click here). Looks very clean to me! I am going to buy that camera for my little brother :)

I know it’s a bit to early to make a final judgment about the HIgh-ISO performance of the camera. Anyway feel free to share your opinion:

Do you like the G3 ISO 3.200 images?

Back: Amazon US accepting X100 preorders (Fuji X100 versus E-PL2)


Soundimageplus (Click here) compared the Fuji X100 and the Olympus E-PL2: “I’m not giving up m4/3 and in particular the 20mm lens any time soon. Its still an excellent system for what I use it for and interchangeable lenses is obviously a terrific advantage.

If you want to preorder the Fuji X100 than we have good news. Amazon US (Click here) is back accepting preorders.
