The Panasonic Lumix G3 sports a new 16.6-megapixel sensor and a redesigned body, and delivers some of the best pictures from Micro Four Thirds yet. Check out how else it does in our review.
The Panasonic Lumix GF3 is dramatically different from the GF-cameras that have come before, and represents a significant breakthrough for the Micro Four Thirds system. It's sure to delight some users, while disappointing others. Here's why.
"To deliver the happiness of photography all around the world, without the knowledge of a camera standing in the way. This is the purpose of the PEN." That's how Olympus started off its PEN cameras' launch event, and sounds like an apt mission statement for the design and aspiration of the three new models unveiled today.
As part of the Panasonic Asia Pacific Lumix G Seminar 2011 in Chiang Mai, we were invited for a 2-day photography trip around the city. Here's a compilation of what we have learned from the seminar and discovered while using their new Panasonic DMC-G3 and DMC-GF3.
The Panasonic GH1 released in 2009 was the first Micro Four Thirds camera to record full HD video and it was also the first camera with an interchangeable lens to have auto-focus while shooting video.

For those who loved the Olympus E-P cameras but found the prices a little dear, the E-PL1 offered a more affordable alternative minus the frills like dedicated controls, but with the same quality sensor and a built-in flash in a smaller body. The E-PL2 follows one year later with many improvements over the original. Here's our verdict of the follow-up model.
