The World’s Fastest Level of Light Speed AF*

The LUMIX GF3 boasts the Light Speed AF of approx. 0.1 second** to capture spur-of-the-moment opportunities in sharp focus.

* The time for focusing on the subject is measured with LUMIX G VARIO HD 14-140mm / F4.0-5.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. (H-VS014140) to move the lens position to “2m” from “infinity” position. The zoom position is in wide range. Panasonic measurement method.

** Approximately 0.1 second with LUMIX G VARIO HD 14-140mm / F4.0-5.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S., Approximately 0.18 second with LUMIX G VARIO 14-42mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S., Approximately 0.15 second with LUMIX G VARIO 45-200mm / F4.0-5.6 / MEGA O.I.S.

To get the best AF performance with DMC-GF3 and LUMIX G VARIO HD 14-140mm / F4.0-5.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. (H-VS014140), the firmware of LUMIX G VARIO HD 14-140mm / F4.0-5.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. (H-VS014140) must be updated to ver. 1.3 or later.

A Built-in-Flash in a Sleek, Compact Body

Even though the DMC-GF3’s body is extremely compact, it is equipped with a built-in flash which adopts new pop-up mechanism to prevent vignetting effect due to short distance between the flash unit and the interchangeable lens.

Furthermore, the body is made of aluminium featuring lightness and high-specific strength with an ergonomic grip which offers a comfortable hold despite its ultra compact size.

The use of the flash in this compact body expands photographic opportunities in shooting people at night-time or indoors.

iA Plus Mode with Easy Manual Adjustment

The iA (Intelligent Auto) Plus will satisfy experienced photographers, yet is easy enough for beginners to use comfortably in both photo and video recording. Defocusing area, exposure compensation and white balance can be adjusted for scenes where a slight manual adjustment may bring better results by just moving the slider with your finger.

Full HD Video Recording in AVCHD Format

Now the DMC-GF3 can record 1,920 x 1,080 videos in AVCHD format featuring almost twice the recording time in HD quality than Motion JPEG. See this sample video footage, shot with LUMIX GF3 in full HD.

Easy Video Recording with Full-time Auto Focus - Video recording is more flexible with the DMC-GF3. Touch the screen, and the camera locks on and automatically “tracks” the subject as it moves, keeping on adjusting the focus settings for best results.

Dolby® Digital Creator High Quality Sound - The microphone on the upper body records dynamic, true-to-life audio that brings out the power of your HD videos.
