The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3 is a Compact Systems Camera from the Lumix G series of lightweight, skill-variant cameras with interchangeable lenses. Building off the previous G2 model, the most notable update to the line would be the G3's articulating, 3-inch touchscreen viewfinder which builds off the generally intuitive interface model of leading smartphones to replace previously physical buttons and dials. Multiple features such as focus, exposure, white balance, and depth of field, can be finger adjusted and assimilate with the touch menu for a more user-friendly interface. Providing a 16 megapixel sensor, support for 1080p AVCHD video recording with stereo audio, and 4fps burst shooting at full resolution, the G3 has been designed to cater to the simplicity of home use, while offering high performance options conducive to journalistic photography.
