Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 is a small and light but yet a peerless image maker. Its a digital interchangeable lens system.
The camera has a 460k-dot Wide-viewing 3.2 TFT LCD with Touch panel that offers approximately 100% field of view and 7-level brightness adjustment controls.
12.1-megapixel Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine
It’s 17.3 x 13.0mm (4:3) type Live MOS Sensor with Primary Color filter and Supersonic wave filter which reduces dust. It also features 12.1 camera effective pixels. Now with Venus Engine, this camera can process large amount of progressive full HD data at a high speed. This engine produces better quality images at a super-fast response time.
It features 2x and 4x Digital Zoom, and features Extra Tele Conversion which offers 2x for stills and 3.1x for motion images in SH/H in AVCHD and HD/WVGA in Motion JPEG format. The other features it flaunts include 3-pattern Guide Lines and Real-time Histogram.
You achieve perfect focus with Contrast AF which offers AFS, AFC and MF modes. The Autofocus modes available includes Face Detection, AF Tracking, 23-area-focusing, 1-area-focusing and Pinpoint. It has AF Detective range of EV 0 – 18 (ISO100 equivalent) and is helped by AF Assist lamp. Other important elements featured in this focus are Quick AF, Continuous AF (during motion image recording), AF+MF, Touch shutter and Touch MF Assist.
It’s TTL built-in, GN6.3 equivalent, Built-in Pop-up type flash which offers Auto, Auto Red-eye Reduction, Forced On, Forced On Red-eye Reduction, Slow Sync, Slow Sync Red-eye Reduction and Forced Off. The synchronization speed it offers is less than 1/160 sec. And then there is 1st Curtain Sync flash synchronization.
iA (Intelligent Auto) mode
You can shoot with your DMC S5 camera whenever and wherever you want and you will always get the best results. Shooting in low light is a tough test for any digital camera. The camera with its iA mode will identify the shooting situation and select the most appropriate settings to give you stupendous captures, making your moments memorable. This mode includes intelligent ISO control, the optical Image stabilizer, brightness, intelligent scene selector, intelligent exposure and the face detection function.
ISO & SHUTTER SPEED
Offers 100-6400 settings for both Auto and Intelligent ISO. As for shutter, it offers Focal-plane shutter that for stills offers 1/4000 ~ 60 and for motion images offers 1/16000 ~ 1/30 (NTSC) and 1/16000 ~ 1/25 (PAL) speed.
SHOOTING MODES & SCENES
For specific situation or subject while shooting stills, this camera offers Portrait, Soft Skin, Scenery, Architecture, Sports, Peripheral Defocus, Flower, Food, Objects, Night Portrait, Night Scenery, Illuminations, Baby 1,2, Pet, Party and Sunset.For Movie Scene modes the camera offers Portrait, Soft Skin, Scenery, Architecture, Sports, Flower, Food, Objects, Low-light, Party and Sunset.
The Creative Controls such as Expressive, Retro, High key, Sepia, High Dynamic and Miniature add up to the creativity of your photos.
What’s more, there are also Image Quality options like RAW, RAW+Fine, RAW+Standard, Fine, and Standard, MPO+Fine, MPO+Standard with 3D lens in Micro Four Thirds System standard.
If you go in for Burst speed, you can shoot at 3.8 fps in H, 2.8 fps in M and 2 fps in L mode. And you can shoot as many as 7 images when there are RAW files with the particular speed, and unlimited consecutive shooting when there are no RAW files. However the latter depends on memory card size, battery power, picture size and compression.
Capturing someone on the move like swimming, racing, boating is a tricky task but with this camera, it will seem much easier and give better results with clarity in the photos. The AF Tracking automatically tracks the focused subject until you press the shutter button half-way down. It is ideal for clicking running children, pets or any other sports activity.
