New GH3 videos roundup…(iPad lag?)

Lumix GH3 vs GH2 – Continuous autofocus

43rumors readers keep sending me links to their early GH3 test videos. And of course I post them all :)

ThePhotoSoup posted a set of GH3 video test on youtube. Florian Walter shows you that there is a sort delay on the iPad Gh3 remote control (youtube). GH3 vs GH2 presentation video by Griffin Hammond (youtube). Pilpop in Berlin (vimeo). Christoph has quite many wild house-animals to show…lol (vimeo). This is probably the most…let’s say minimalistic :) GH3 video I found on vimeo.

And I didn’t get any new report about the possible production delay of the GH3 because of a viewfinder production issue. Let me know if you find some news related to this. Thanks!

Check the GH3 availability by clicking those links: Amazon, Olympus US store, Adorama, B&H, eBay.

GH3 production delay in Japan?

5D Mark III vs GH3 from Ryan Mancuso on Vimeo.

There a rumors on the Japanese website Kakaku (translation here) saying that the shipment of GH3 will be delayed in Japan due to a big delay in the production of “finder component” of the camera. (Thanks Onur for finding this). Don’t know if the info is correct. For now the GH3 is regularly shipping in EU and US stores and should ship next week at Amazon Japan too.

Must read! New GH3 review by Adam Wilt!

Moire Aliasing Lumix GH2 vs GH3 test from Excuse Cie on Vimeo.

Adam Wilt posted the first part of his GH3 review at Provideocoalition. He really got into the very deep video quality analysis and this is definitely a must read article! In very short, the difference between the GH2 and Gh3 in terms of video quality isn’t that big. While certainly the features offered by the GH3 are reason enough to step up to the GH3. For Adam the real surprise was that: “The real selling point on the GH3 is its electronic shutter, which allows completely silent stills capture in hush-hush situations where even leaf-shutter cameras fear to tread.”

Also Noam Kroll compared the GH3 and the GH2 cameras. He mroe or less comes to the same conclusion: “All in all the GH3 is an incredible successor to the GH2 and a better camera in most ways – even when compared to a hacked GH2. With that said it does potentially suffer from more moire than the GH2 and the jump in image quality isn’t drastically different.

And finally also Discovermirrorless shared his thoughts about the GH3 vs GH2 comparison.
