Panasonic Lumix G3 - Sample Images: General Review

Panasonic Lumix G3 1
The G3 produces vibrant colours and sharp, snappy images
(1/160sec @ f/7.1, ISO 200, AWB)

Panasonic Lumix G3 5
Metering is generally very accurate, though this still-life would have benefited from a touch of EV compensation
( 1/640sec @ f/7.1, ISO 7.1, AWB)

Panasonic Lumix G3 2
In this image we’ve focused on the honeysuckle’s stamen and used a small aperture to throw the background
(1/800sec @ f/5.6, ISO 200, AWB)

Panasonic Lumix G3 3
In this snatched image of a London tube station, the G3 has overexposed the sky. We did make the train though
(1/200sec @ f/7.1, ISO 200, AWB)

Panasonic Lumix G3 4
For us, the G3 is all about punchy colour and sharp images
(1/500sec @ f/7.1, ISO 200, AWB)

Panasonic Lumix G3 1
We’ve pushed the G3 hard here by shooting straight into the sun. To its credit though, the G3 has delivered good result
(1/500sec @ f/9, ISO 160, AWB)

Panasonic Lumix G3
In this London street scene the G3 has delivered good detail, thankfully free of any moire effect
(1/640sec @ f/11, ISO 160, AWB)

Panasonic Lumix G3 3
Using the G3’s Peripheral Defocus feature is as easy as selecting it and touching the screen on where you want to concentrate focus
(1/ 400sec @ f/ 5.3, ISO 160, AWB)

Panasonic Lumix G3 1
There’s no specific macro mode, but the G3 is still capable of delivering good close-ups
(1/800sec @ f/5.6, ISO 800, AWB) 


The G3 has delivered a good result in this high-contrast scene, even without having to call on the High Dynamic option
(1/400sec @ f/8, ISO 200, AWB)
