Smaller, lighter and with outstanding image quality; the LUMIX G3 offers creativity without limits. Featuring New 16MPLive MOS Sensor, Intuitive Touch Screen Display, FULL HD movie recording and 3D shooting capability. The DMC-G3 has raised the bar in interchangeable lens camera quality. With an optimal balance of the imaging engine and sensor size, a huge range of features such as Venus Engine FHD, iA+ manual settings, MEGA O.I.S., and a beautiful light-weight design, the DMC-G3 turns everyday moments into works of art.

Product Features in Detail

High speed meets high performance
Exceptional image quality is what everyone desires from their camera. The DMC-G3’s 16 megapixel Live MOS sensor ensures that your images will be beautifully rendered, thanks to a low noise processing circuit structure. Combine this with the super-charged Venus Engine VI FHD, which features advanced signal processing capabilities, and you will create stunning, sharp images every time.

Capture every precious moment
Now you never need to regret ‘the one that got away’; that perfect picture you weren’t fast enough to catch, because the DMC-G3 incorporates the world’s fastest*1 pinpoint auto focus speed, at approximately 0.1 second*2. The ingenious Light Speed AF system gives the DMC-G3 an accuracy and speed that rivals the performance of high-end DSLRs. A wide range of AF modes are available, including multiple-area AF with up to 23 focus areas, Face Detection, and AF Tracking, meaning the DMC-G3 can lock onto any subject and keep it in focus even if it moves.

*1 The time for focusing on the subject is measured with the LUMIX G VARIO HD 14-140mm / F4.0-5.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. (H-VS014140) to move the lens position to “2m” from “infinity” position. The zoom position is in wide range. Panasonic measurement method.
*2 Approx. 0.1 sec with the LUMIX G VARIO HD 14-140mm / F4.0-5.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S., approx. 0.18 sec with the LUMIX G VARIO 14-42mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S., approx. 0.15 sec with the LUMIX G VARIO 45-200mm / F4.0-5.6 / MEGA O.I.S.
• To get the best AF performance with the DMC-G3 and LUMIX G VARIO HD 14-140mm / F4.0-5.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. (H-VS014140), the firmware of LUMIX G VARIO HD 14-140mm / F4.0-5.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. (H-VS014140) must be updated to ver. 1.3 or later.

Intuitive touch-control enhances precision
The DMC-G3 features a variety of intuitive touch-control operations designed to make shooting and playback easy and fun. Touch control ensures that precision focus is even easier to achieve across the auto focus system, including full-area touch focusing where the focus can be set immediately to the subject, or to the background, by just one touch of the large LCD screen.

iA+ gives you more creative freedom
The iA (Intelligent Auto) Plus will satisfy experienced photographers, yet is easy enough for beginners to use comfortably in both photo and video recording. Defocusing area, exposure compensation and white balance can be adjusted for scenes where a slight manual adjustment may bring better results. This popular function is easily operated with a slider on the touch-screen. Additional iA features include AF Tracking, Face Recognition, Intelligent D-range Control, Intelligent Resolution, MEGA O.I.S. (included in the lens), Intelligent ISO Control and Intelligent Scene Selector.

Film your masterpiece in the highest quality
The DMC-G3's 16-megapixel sensor means the camera can record in Full HD AVCHD; producing higher quality movies with minimal noise and capturing almost twice the recording time in HD quality than Motion JPEG. Panasonic’s advanced auto focus system with full-time AF and AF tracking ensures high-quality, easy video shooting. Touch the screen, and the camera locks on and automatically “tracks” the subject as it moves, continuing to adjust the focus settings for best results. High quality sound can be recorded with Dolby® Digital Stereo Creator, featuring a powerful wind-cut function, so you can be sure that your images are complimented by dynamic, true-to-life audio.
