New GH3 video sample.


A day in Montmartre – [Panasonic Lumix GH3] from emeric on Vimeo.

Some little news about the GH3:

Our friends from Hybridcams shot that nice video with the GH3. Thanks for sharing! And our reader Twills sent me this: “The Panasonic GH3 specs page is being constantly updated as the firmware is finalized. The shutter duration spec did not specify a “Bulb” mode time limit before. Now it says it goes up to Approx. 60 minutes. That is great news as the GH2 is limited to 128 seconds in Bulb mode:
Still Images: 1/4,000 – 60 and Bulb (Approx. 60 minutes)
Motion Images: 1/16,000 – 1/30 (NTSC), 1/16,000 – 1/25 (PAL)
Keep an eye on the page below to see what else is updated when the firmware is finally complete.

GH3 preorders at Amazon , Adorama, BhphotoPanasonic USSamys and in Europe at Wexphotographic UK and Technikdirekt.

    Wow the footage looked great to me. Better than any promotional video we’ve seen so far.

  • Franky S

    Finally someone gets their hands on a GH3 that knows what they’re doing.

    I cannot for the life of me comprehend why Panasonic insist on placing pre-production models almost exclusively in the hands of rank novices, who then litter the net with horrendous looking images and video. Pany could learn a lot from Olympus in this regard.

  • This video truly shows the GH3’s worth. Sweet batch of lenses he used, nothing outlandishly insane. Nice steady city scenes.

  • Stravinsky

    Poor soundtrack choice, annoyed the hell out of me.

  • Paul Alexander

    As a rule, I’d need to see behind-the-scenes or on set video of the author actually using that camera, as was done during Philip Bloom’s demo, ‘Genesis’.
    I hate to sound mean but baring a little moire at 1:28 and 2:09 this looks more like an FS700 than GH3. However if it is straight out of a GH3, un-hacked but graded for scale and color, I’d have to agree that it’s the best I’ve seen so far.
    Well done emeric!

    • Heat Legend

      Do you also not believe still images are from new cameras unless you see a picture of someone taking said image with the camera?

      • Paul Alexander

        Correct. All so-called tests need to be proctored. Its too easy to spoof readers and without full metadata, I could shoot with an FS700 and ask you to believe it’s from a GH3. However, I have experienced the wider apparent DR using – contrast setting on other cameras so it’s quite possible.

  • Sean Nelson

    Interesting and very appreciated to see the long-exposure Bulb mode. I’ll bet that’s possible because of all the work they did with sensor heat dissipation in order to handle the new high-speed video modes. Another example of why making the GH3 a better video camera also benefits the stills photographer.

    • Esa Tuunanen

      Cooling is really more for the processor because processing and compressing video takes lots of work.

      If you’ve seen pages (like Chipworks, Lensrentals blog) where some camera has been stripped to parts none has cooling element for sensor.
      Unless we’re talking about astronomical cameras.

  • Evan

    This is the first video I have seen that made me want to buy a GH3. The image is stunning. That said, I think my GH2 could have produced this video. No?

  • thethirdcoast

    Now this is the sort of GH3 sample I was hoping for! Just terrific contrast and decent color rendition even if it is near mid-day and the light is a little harsh.
