World famous BBC series “Top gear” uses the Panasonic GH2. Studio comparison for GH3.

FacebookShare

P13DigitalMedia sent me that picture with the following text: “If you want some trivia, the world’s most watched TV show, Top Gear uses the Lumix GH2 for aerial shots (pic via twitter).” BBC uses very strict rules regarding image quality and I am glad to see they uses the GH2! :)

To bad the Gh2 is now slowly fading out from stores. I only found some new and sometimes overpriced cameras via third party resellers at Amazon (Click here) and some auctions on eBay (Click here). We want it back in Stock!

Dpreview posted updated the studio comparison tool and added the GH3 images. Now you can have some fun comparing the image quality with other cameras!
GH3 in Stock status check: Amazon, Olympus US store, Adorama, B&H, eBay.
