Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3: Snazzy Features At A Price

In recent months we have reported on a few different cameras and DSLRs including the Fujifilm FinePix AV200, a few different models from Nikon in the S range and of course the Nikon D5100 that was given an earlier than expected release date by Best Buy.

Now we have another device to report on that we heard about through Engadget’s Dana Wollman, it’s the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3 and we wanted to tell you about some of its snazzy features and also the price. Wollman explains that it has arrived right on schedule and that this is the successor to the G2.

Onto the specs and features that you can expect to see from this bad boy, the first being the 3” touchscreen which is described as working like that of a smartphone which may appeal more to the technological generation that we find ourselves in today. It has a sensor that is sensitive up to 16 megapixels and it weighs in at a slight 11.8 ounces which is roughly 10 percent lighter than the previous model.

The 11.8 ounce weigh in makes this device the smallest and lightest Digital Interchangeable lens system camera in the world. If you are looking for a full list of specifications and a load of information about the DMC-G3 then use this link to be directed to the official press release from Panasonic. It’s going to make its way to us in June and it comes in a range of colors so spend your $700 wisely and pick between white, red, brown and black.
