Initial Panasonic DMVC-GH3 image samples

Our first chance to try out the Panasonic DMVC-GH3 and produce some sample images

GH3_01b.jpg

Earlier today I had my first chance to take some pictures with the Panasonic Lumix DMVC-GH2, Panasonic's new flagship Micro Four Thirds camera featuring a dust and moisture-sealed magnesium alloy body and a brand new 16 megapixel sensor that we understand to be basically the same Sony part used by Olympus in the OM-D E-M5. I was able to use the GH3 with the very familiar Panasonic 14-140mm f/3.5-5.6 10x zoom plus the new X-series 35-100mm f/2.8.

Unfortunately, the sun didn't bless us with its presence and it was overcast, cold and wet - challenging conditions for any digital camera. But at least it was a good opportunity to see how well the camera coped in low contrast relatively dim light.

Here is a gallery of 31 selected sample images taken today. The GH3 I was provided with was pre-production and so I was requested not to publish RAW files and to reduce the camera JPEGs from their original 16 megapixels to 5 megapixel files.
