Designed from the ground up for the hybrid photographer
Today's photographer seeks to master the seamless transition between stills and videos within their unique workflow. While the DSLR attempted to fill the gap using legacy architecture what was needed was a true change in camera designs. With the introduction of the first mirrorless camera in 2008, the LUMIX G1 set the groundwork for the reinvention of the camera into a true hybrid system. Today the new LUMIX DMC-GH3 fulfills the photographer's dream of seamless transition from still the video without compromise.

Track the action with full area AF
Thanks to its mirrorless design, the DMC-GH3 delivers with a highly accurate contrast video and still AF system, free from the compromise of limited set focus points found in a DSLR. Subjects tracking, face detection, and even rack focusing can be changed at the touch of a finger to its articulating 3" OLED display. Don't just capture video, now photographers can direct them in Full 1080/60p clarity (AVCHD and H.264 formats).
