It's hard not to recommend and we can certainly see this being one more step towards Micro Four Thirds Dominance." The Lumix G Micro System Camera G3 is one of the world’s smallest and lightest system camera and features superb image quality and advanced focusing, making it the perfect companion for taking on the road with you, and capturing the world. With an exceptional range of features and stunning image quality packed into a beautifully lightweight aluminium design, the LUMIX G3 turns everyday moments into works of art. Key Features: Superb Image Quality: 16 megapixel Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine FHD Fast Light Speed AF and Advanced Focusing 1920 x 1080 Full HD Video in AVCHD Format iA Plus for Easy Manual Adjustment Creative Control and Photo Style to Express Your Own Creativity The LUMIX G3 lets you capture great photos from the very first shot. A 16-megapixel sensor and light-speed autofocus gives you the exceptional image quality that was once restricted to large, heavy DSLR cameras. The intuitive automatic shooting modes and full range of advanced features, combined with high-resolution free-angle LCD touch screen or Electronic View Finder, mean you get the picture you want, how you want. The advances of the LUMIX G3 are not restricted to still photos. The camera lets you record stunning Full HD movies . Long recording times and intuitive controls help you create perfect movies with ease, and due to the inter-picture prediction method for compression, the AVCHD format enjoys almost double the recording time compared to Motion JPEG. The Full-time AF and AF Tracking functionality allows you to take high-quality movies effortlessly - with just one touch of the screen, the LUMIX G3 locks on and automatically tracks your subject and keeps it in focus as it moves. A 16.0-megapixel Live MOS Micro Four Thirds Sensor means images will be cleaner and freer of noise than ever. With newly developed processing capabilities, the low-noise pixel area and the low-noise circuit are combined, resulting in a noise level of less than one third of a conventional sensor. Speed is of the essence for exceptional photography, and the LUMIX G3 doesn’t disappoint. It pushes the boundaries of high performance with the world’s fastest pinpoint auto focus speed , approximately 0.1 seconds. Panasonic’s Intelligent Auto Plus (iA+) mode provides the best shooting results when a photo opportunity appears ensuring every snap makes you proud. This includes MEGA O.I.S (Optical Image Stabilising), which helps prevent blurring from hand-shake, and Intelligent ISO Control, which reduces motion blur by adjusting the ISO sensitivity if the subject moves as the shot is taken. Feeling creative? One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless. Why not take a look at our range of additional lenses ?
