Panasonic GH3 Tips and Tricks Guide (Still a few cameras in Stock at Kenmore).


If you own the GH3 and want to learn more about it watch the video on top that contains a Tips and Tricks Guide for your Custom Settings. And by the way, Giulio at SmallCameraBigPicture is very upset that Phase One is still ignoring the GH3 and E-M5 :)

And if you have a GH3 on pre order in US than Amazon likely notified you yesterday that the camera will ship by end of this month. There are still a few cameras left in Stock via eBay US at 39mm (Click here) and Kenmorecamera (Click here).

Reminder: The super E-M5 and Sigma MFT lens deals:
Black E-M5 body only for $809 at eBay US (Click here).
Black E-M5 body with 14-42mm lens for $899 at eBay US (Click here).
Both Sigma MFT lenses (the 30 and 19mm) for the price of one only at BHphoto (Click here).

    Phase One is supporting both the GH3 and the E-M5, what isn’t supported is tethered shooting. No other Olympus cameras are supported for tethered shooting, no Panasonic either. Since Phase One is already supporting tethered shooting of many other Canon cameras, I suppose that it is easier to add a new Canon camera, than design something new for Olympus and Panasonic cameras.

    • Well tethered shooting is for studio use, i think this Phase One will come soon if them not will be take on bed, ;-)

    I was worried there was going to be an exam after that video. How to qualify for a BSc in GH3ology…

      If you read the manual through cover to cover you could graduate as well. Watching the video is a lot easier.

    I got an email from Amazon…but the delivery is not due to end of month …its due to 22 January ! I ll be arriving in USA by 24 January…just in time…
    Now I need to decide which lenses to pick …
    My use is 60% video and 40% stills
    Cant decide between 12-35 f 2.8 , voigtlander 25 mm f.95 , SLR Magic 12 mm + 25mm f1.4 ….
    Currently I have the 20 mm pancake , 45 mm zuiko f.18 and the 14-140 …
    Any hints ?

      What day did you order?

    • I used to have a GH2 and now have a GH3. Over the past couple of years, I’ve had 4 Panasonic lenes: 14-140 4-5.8 (kit lens with GH2), 20 1.7, 25 1.4, and 12-35 2.8 (kit lens with GH3). The 25 is my favourite, then 12-35, then 20, and finally 14-140. The upcoming SLR Magic 25 0.95 looks like it may be a good lens.

    I could not repeat the built-in flash problem the dude in the video had. I think his camera is defective.

    (Got my GH3 from Henrys in Canada just before Xmas…sorry to all those who are still waiting, but it’s worth the wait!!!)

      So far my camera is the only one with the problem. I am sending it in for repair for the flash issue and the EVF tomorrow. I will let you know if they can fix either problem.

    The video guide is by some random user with no particular photographic or for that matter technical qualifications that make this “guide” any more relevant than anyone else’s .I am curious is there some sort of criteria for a links worth or does it work under the any random guy on the net who says mFT good is therefore a source lol

      If you find anything wrong with the video or if you can do better then please speak up.

      • LeonGydt

        a little sensitive at being called a random user , perhaps you have a list of professional videography skills or are a video technician making your set up at least sort of worthy

        • DanDaren,t

          the video looks as if it covers the basics of setting up the camera could be useful for new users not familiar with Panasonic cameras. They guy has hd poor luck with QC having both the flash and EVF problems touch wood my GH3 is fine

          You don’t need a resume to post information that helps people. You seem to think that reputation proceeds results.

          “perhaps you have a list of professional videography skills or are a video technician”

          LOL, a slightly pretentious comment there, unless 43rumors recently became a peer-reviewed journal! Note I have a PhD so, unless any readers have a DSc or equivalent, my conclusion that it’s a cool video is self-evidently more valid than anyone else’s assessment… :-)

    • bousozoku

      So, where is *your* guide?

  • Aron

    I liked the video and thought it was very helpful. I sure hope our right to post in forums and post video won’t be taken away from the post police if we don’t have a degree in video production. Being that I have no degree in video production.

    Excellent hands-on video for the potential Lumix GH 3 buyer even for those who are experienced GH 2 drivers….keep up your good work.
