No way to sell a camera.
I'll wait till someone more skillful creates a video than this photographer, or myself, does a better job.

Note that these are fully representative of the Panasonic GH3’s final video quality when it ships next month. Is that a fact or a typo?

Larry, the camera was set to European PAL mode, so 50fps only.

Tim - the default sharpness setting.

Bob - it's a fact as confirmed by Panasonic, not a typo. Only the still images are not final yet.

OMG !!!Panasonic
What you have done with GH3??!!! This video is just terrible ! The moiré , the colors , the sharpness , its awful video.
If this is final , and I do hope its not , I wont change my GH13 for this ...
Hope something related to firmware was the cause of this horrible video .
Oh no...
Should I run to pick a GH2 ?

Why does it looks so ugly on vimeo, while the downloaded versions looks so good? I know compression does it. but vimeo took the quality down alot. Why is this?

I think the video quality is quite good for a $1300, relatively tiny camera. Better than a D800 or 5DmkIII. Much better resolution and motion rendering. The slo-mo is great. Can't wait to get my hands on one.

The blown highlights on the wall mounted incandescents are inherent in the lighting situation (or lack of one). I do think Panasonic could have provided a much, much better scenario to launch their product.

The one comment/question I have is that the contrast/gamma is very high. What picture profile was used? Is there a setting with a wide dynamic range?

Thanks for the downloads - which I viewed on a Sony video monitor.

Dear Mark,

Please, having already had the GH3 in hand, could you confirm if they have set or not the 29 minutes recording limit in PAL?

Thanks.

Poor performance. Let's wait for the final version.

I have been really really excited about getting my hands on a GH3, but these videos are shockingly bad. The quality is not what I expected at all. Just hope something happened along the way to Vimeo to explain it....
