Four new GH3 videos! (one of them shot on expensive CN-E lenses)


Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 preliminary high ISO test + new Canon CN-E prime lenses from Filippo Chiesa on Vimeo.

And here is the next bunch of GH3 videos to watch! On top you can see Filippo’s video shot with Canon’s new CN-E prime lenses. If you never heard about these lenses before just know that these are high quality lenses that can cost up to $44,000 (they are here at BHphoto). Filippo…you spend that money for CN-E lenses just to take a video of your cat? …Joking :)

Andrew from EosHD posted a new video and writes: “The Panasonic GH3 is much of an improvement on the GH2. After shooting with it properly now I can confidently say YES. The codec contains far more information than on the GH2 (hacked or not), more colour, more dynamic range, much better shadows and smoother gradation.” Andrew also dreams about a possible Panasonic Full Frame camera. But that is not going to happen…for now.

Two more videos: Nick Driftwood explains the Panasonic GH3 Basic Profiles on vimeo. Adam Mada posted that short ISO test on vimeo.

One more news: Michael Britt sent me this text: “I’m hosting the first event featuring the GH3 in the United States at Samy’s Camera Los Angeles.  Panasonic is bringing in NatGeo shooter Ira Block to show his recent video work and Samy’s will be showing and selling the first batch of GH3 cameras hitting our shores.  It’s a free event:

Check price and delivery dates at Amazon , Adorama, BhphotoPanasonic USSamys and in Europe at Wexphotographic UK, Wex Germany, Technikdirekt and soon on eBay (via Slidoo).

  • The Canon CN-E primes are all below $5000. Only the zooms can be up to $44,650.

    Lookin good, Panasonic. It appears that I will be out some money for a new camera very soon.

  • Renato S.

    The “grain” of the high ISO shot should look good in BW.

  • Kuba

    Panasonic! Take my money! Now! ;)

    • Kazuhiro Tsuga

      How dare you suggest such dishonourable undertaking. We Panasonic do not take money like 街娼. We are engaged in sales and services and we refrain take money without making exchange with you for goods and services. You go to Panasonic dealership and make purchase just alike everybody else with honour. 不名誉な!

        Thanks for clearing that up. Until I read that I was convinced Panasonic was just a loose band of pirates who hire mercenaries to hunt down Olympus users. I can sleep easy now.

        • Kazuhiro Tsuga

          You have difficulty sleep easy? As big boss of Panasonic I have many stresses and for sleep easy I can recommendation for you Japanese Junmai Daiginjo Sake. Chilled, take two shots straight up and read Panasonic annual financial report. You will be asleep with pronto! 乾杯 & グッドナイト.

    That EOSHD Andrew guy has the quickest temper and exceptionally the biggest a hole and Apple fan. The guy/she will f you off if you go against his belief and sayings. What’s funny is that he/she calls himself professional.

    Please comment on the quality of the photos comming out of the GH3, everyone understands the video aspect is better than the GH2, what about the photography aspect of the camera. How does it compare to the OM-D E-M5?

      Hello Tom,
      Chasseur d’images, a well established French magazine, published their test of the GH3 last month and they were not so enthusiastic about the quality of stills.
      Basically their comments were that for stills it is the equivalent to a mid-range APS-C camera that can be purchased for less money and offer better tracking capabilities, better DR and better rollover for high values.
      They were kind of saying that if you are into video then it is a very good camera but fo stills you get better results and/or better value elsewhere.

        I have never seen a positive review on M43 gear in chasseur d’image. They are apparently a bit conservative and prefer DSLRs,

      • Basically their comments were that for stills it is the equivalent to a mid-range APS-C camera

        It would be equivalent to at least a full frame camera (using a 4/3 sensor, obviously) from their wiewpoint, wouldn’t it? :D

          Maybe you should quote the full sentence and not the portion that suits you best?

      • “for stills it is the equivalent to a mid-range APS-C camera”

        That statement is almost meaningless. Take the Nikon D3200, which is Nikons lowest DX model and costs only $600 so it’s considered low-mid range, it apparently has better IQ (based on DxO overall scores) than any other Nikon, Canon and Sony Alpha APS-C DSLRs. That’s right, better than the pricier D7000, 60D, 7D, A77, and so on. Only APS-C camera equal or better are the NEX-7, Pentax K-5, and probably Fuji, which DxO haven’t tested. As for tracking capabilities, this is the downside of CDAF; thus, almost all mirrorless suffers from this.

    This camera dont get in Dominican Republic. :( I will wait for someone to go to the U.S. and bring it to me. My biggest question is how to behave in stills.

  • jendabek

    I think the same clip could be recorded with GH2 and you would not tell the difference. This movie is more about the lens than GH3 improvements for me.
