The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3 (priced from $599) is a compact, SLR-styled mirrorless interchangeable lens camera that uses the Micro Four Thirds standard. It's the follow-up to the DMC-G2, and its biggest changes include an even smaller body, a new Live MOS sensor and image processor, faster autofocus performance, and Full HD video recording.
The Panasonic DMC-G3 can record high-resolution full-HD 1920 x 1080 AVCHD movies in astonishing smooth 60i (NTSC) / 50i (PAL). From the GF2, the G3 gains a touch screen interface that is a vast improvement over that seen in the G2. The G3 also gains improved video capability, matching the GF2′s ability to output either 1080i/60 or 720p60 (both from 30fps sensor output).
