GH3 vs GH2 video by Nick Driftwood! Battery grip for GH3 in Stock in US.


Panasonic GH3 Review Part 7: GH3 Demobbed from Nick Driftwood on Vimeo.

Nick just sent me the link to his latest video (Thanks!). It’s definitely the funniest GH3 vs GH2 video comparison ever made :)

And the first GH3 battery grip are now in Stock and shipping at Handbdig (here on eBay) and Kenmorecamera (here on eBay). Also in Stock is the DMW-MS2 Stereo Shotgun at Handbdig (here on eBay). All stuff found via Slidoo GH3 search (CLick here).

And I have a correction to report. Our Japanese readers pointed out an error in the google translation tool on the Panasonic press release. The Gh3 body has been delayed by two weeks but the GH3 kits will ship in December (not in May as stated by Google translation)! That is a huge difference! (Source:

    GH3 is sounding like a beast of a camera.

  • blt

    some nice looking video, some nice looking shots.
    But a very annoying ‘wise-guy’ stopped me from watching it all.

    • canon bacon

      yes BLT, hold the mayo and the tomato. gh3 is wise guy camera. stick with the canon PLZ!

  • Wow

    What a annoying video

  • Sorry, not very funny. Strange color grading.

    • According to the description of the video, the colors were all done in-camera.

    • Nick Driftwood

      Doesn’t anyone read the descriptions on Vimeo anymore? Grading hasn’t been done yet! Apart from a few brightness tests in prep for a forthcoming Vimeo Grade which will replace the video, most people understood that this review was all about the DMW-MS2 shotgun microphone. I don’t give diddly f*ck if you like it or not, but Listen!

      And let this be clear to people, we were not in anyway paid off to make this (this is a 2 hour film/edit/upload), I have no connection to Pany, and am certainly not sponsored by anyone to make these videos. Capice?

        Oh Nick, get out of here as fast as you can. This is olympusfanboyland. The video is absolutely fantastic and thats that.

  • Pat

    oh, that was painful. Nice Production values though.

  • Zeusz

    I thought it was a fun piece! I enjoyed it! Had me chuckling pretty good!

    “Oh and Frankie!Though I said is was MORE professional than the GH2, it’s still a toy ‘beta’ mirrorless for Trust Fund Babies to spend their loose cash on till Panasonic or Olympus or Sony figure out how to design all this stuff in a truly professional body.
    See Frankie, the GH3 is still SHAPED like a leica-style camera and has a pop-up flash and other silly hybrid class features.
    See Frankie, this annoying guy on the net keeps hammering away at us for being so dumb and at the camera companies for fleecing all the suckers out there that buy cameras like they was popcorn at the movies.
    I mean, this guy keeps asking about the Driftwood character…who else would put together a blockbuster demo flick like this using a beta product?Him and the Bloom character, He calls them pimps for Panasonic! We should get him!
    Frankie, are you there?
    But it’s OK Frankie, cause bye the time the Trust Fund Babies run out of play money, a real professional, small form-factor mirrorless with 4K raw capture in a shape that readily accommodates rigging and add-on modules will be on the market and you can dump your GH3 on ebay- hopefully you’ll get 10% of it’s retail price back this time next year.
    Frank? Are you with me? What’s that you say?
    Driftwood sucks at color grading?
    Well he’s an awesome director, writer and DP so can’t we cut the guy a break?

    Sucky purple shadows with nasty arse gain macroblocking in the demo’s shadows?

    Well WTF do you care Franky, as long as we get paid for posting this movie and the kids start hitting the ‘BUY’ button B&H’s website?
    The TFB’s just wanna get off on something new this Christmas and ya gotta agree, the GH2 was getting long in the tooth.

    Oh sorry! not YOUR teeth Frankie, the cam…oh never mind!
    And look at all the gaga GH3 features Frankie. That’s gotta mean we can do better shallow narrative feature flicks (if not really exquisite XXX movies ;)

    Anyways, I gotta run, my girlfriends wanna see me play with my GH3 in ahem… low light.
    Arrividerci Frankie!

    very clever movie! the “tough guy” rambling about the nerdy details lost me. would have been better if there was a 3rd guy, not-so-tough type, tied up by the tough guy who was telling him to ‘spill the details’…

  • Sanford

    I can’t sit through another video. Can someone just tell who won?

  • gl

    Fun little video Nick, lots of nice ideas (shooter, body, barrel etc). Just coulda used tighter cuts between dialogue, it drags in places. I’d have gone for punchy fast delivery (Simpsons style), makes it funnier too.

  • My advice about the DMW-MS2 Microphone is on >
