This model is the company’s smallest and lightest digital ILCC with a viewfinder till date. The LUMIX G3 features a new 16.0-megapixel sensor, plus 1920 x 1080 full-High Definition (HD) video recording capability with stereo sound in AVCHD. The G3 is the ideal hybrid, offering superb still and video capabilities with easy-to-use features so users at any level can create professional-quality images.
The camera provides a traditional D-SLR-like experience with an external Mode dial for quick access to Program, Shutter and Aperture Priority, Manual. A dedicated video button is also featured that helps you to switch to video capture quickly without changing modes. The touch-control shooting allows photographers to focus on the subject by simply touching the large, 3-inch high-resolution LCD touch screen.
The Panasonic Lumix G3 will be available in June at a retail price of £550 (body only), and £629 with a 14-42mm lens.
