My Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3CK Review
Look and Feel
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3CK has a Ultra Compact camera body and there are 4 colors you can pick, That seems the Panasonic put a lot of effort on appearance, Because mounts of camera only offer two or three colors, I have to say the more colors can satisfy more people’s taste.
The 3 inch LCD display is sharp and clear, But it is fixed, If Panasonic can make a GF3 that can come with the tilting LCD, The camera would be more popular.
All about the Performance
Thanks to the 12 MP MOS sensor and Venus Engine processor, Th image quality is between good and great, Even the sensitivity close to ISO 800, I get a little to hard the color noise.
And the 1080P video is also have a high quality result. I like the autoexposure while shooting video, That saves a lot of time for post-processing.
About 250 shots is not a great battery life for me, As more and more camera can take 300 even 400 shots, So we must carry some spare batteries for traveling.
Verdict and Discount
“I wanted a really small camera one that fits in my pocket and still takes good pictures. Well I found it in the GF3. I already own the GH2 so I already new that this camera should be able to perform as good if not better than the GH2 and I was right. This little camera focuses faster the GH2 and takes just as nice a picture. I would recommend the two primes the 14mm that comes with it and pick up yourself the 20mm. Thats all you really need and it can all fit in your pockets. The only thing it would have be nice if it had a viewfinder that way you can take more discrete pictures and it would help on the extreme sunny days.Some people may find the touch screen hard to get use too but the more you use it the faster you get with it.Over all I am happy with this camera a camera that you can carry around everywhere is a camera that you will use.” – bhvideo user
In a word, If you want to buy a compact camera that is good for entry level, The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3CK maybe a great choice for you.
