Panasonic Lumix GH3 gets more serious about audio & video than its predecessors | COMPACT VIDEO & PHOTOGRAPHY |
After a much extended product cycle than first expected, Panasonic has just announced the Lumix GH3 camera, which will replace the GH2, which is even called the “predecessor” in the official GH3 press release dated September 17, 2012. The GH3 is somewhat larger and tougher, which I know many will applaud, and is full of audio/video improvements including a full 3.5mm mic input instead of the prior 2.5mm, manual audio levels when recording, a headphone jack for monitoring, as well as several new video recording formats, including much higher bit rate recording without having to hack the camera. Ahead you’ll see a promotional video from Panasonic and many of its new audio/video specs
