Review: Panasonic Lumix GF3 Mirrorless CameraSunday, July 28, 2013 Camera, Gadgets, Panasonic Lumix GF3, Reviews,
Here are the reasons why I opted for the Panasonic Lumix GF3 instead:
The price.It’s the most affordable mirrorless camera in the market. Lumix LX7 cost around 15K from online sellers. Just a minor difference. The extra battery.It really sold me. I mean, I know how important an extra battery is. Of course it’s not like Sammy who I charge almost 3 times a day but a full day of adventure might drain my battery and I don’t want to miss a single photo-worthy scene just because my batt run out of juices. Plus original camera batteries cost 2K. Bongga na yun. Ease of use.I tried the Olympus and what really bug me is the fact that it’s so hard to change settings. I am not a pro photographer. Actually, ngayon ko lang nalaman ang shutter speed at aperture. But the light meter in GF3 is so helpful I swear! Ikot ikot lang until mag-zero si light meter. Hahahahaha.. Intelligent Auto.I swear! It’s really intelligent. Not plain smart. Intelligent! It produces super nice photos. Perfect for my ninja shot moments. Touch screen.I am so used to my touch screens that I honestly think having one for a camera is a major plus. It makes change of settings and photo viewing much easier. Focus.Since its touch screen, changing of focus is much easier. Plus the Auto Focus is perfect. Bokeh shots, here I come! Smile The body is made in JAPAN.Need I say more?
The lack of view finder and tiltable screen is something I can live without. Considering that I got to save loads. I used it on my Mindanao adventure and has given me loads of decent photos. Yehey! I just need to learn to use it so I can maximize its potential. Sayang naman the power of the camera is puro IA lang ang alam ko diba? Any tips from my photo enthusiast friends/readers?
