Digital Camera Description

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 is a Mirrorless Digital Camera with a Four-Thirds sensor and a Micro Four-Thirds lens mount. Its 16 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 200-12800 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 125-25600. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in very low-light. With 16 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/4000 to 1m. Bulb exposures of an unspecified duration are possible with this camera. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/4000, fast action can easily be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.

The weatherproof construction of this digital camera protects it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Framing on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 is performed via a 0.50" Built-in EVF with 1.7 Megapixels. This large EVF has 0.67X magnification and shows 100% coverage.
