Not sure how many of you are already working with the Panasonic GH3 Camera, but I enjoyed working with this camera so much I ended up with a second one just a few weeks after. I was never a big MFT shooter, until I started working with the GH3. For the price, It's hard to beat the features for both a serious high quality Stills and ILC Video camera.

First and foremost, it's small, and lightweight, so it's been our exclusive camera for event coverage. Unlike the GH2, this camera was redesigned with a Magnesium Alloy Frame along with Dust and Splash Proof seals. Very clean at high ISO does excellent in low lighting situations.

SDHC allows me to work with cheaper media, shoots in AVCHD when I want high quality compressed footage, or up to 72Mbps [All-Intra] MOV for high quality footage to grade in post. Built in Wi-Fi to control with your iPhone, built in Intervalometer (Time Lapse), HDMI output full 1080 without hijacking the LCD display, full 1080p 60fps (for slo-mo), articulating LCD, fast auto focus (full time AF available in video mode too), not to mention the ability to adapt pretty much any lens on the market. There's a great product page showcasing some highlight features of the GH3 (found here).

There's a hundred more reasons why it's a great camera for the price, and today several retailers are discounting the Panasonic GH3 $200 Off. Some retailers may bundle additional items for better value. Check out the limited time discounts available (below).

One issue with using a GH3 camera inside of the Gearbox GB-2 is trying to access the battery door. By using the Panasonic DC Coupler (dummy battery), i'm able to use an external power source like the Tekkeon MP3450i Battery (found here). The Tekkeon battery is capable of outputting various DC Voltage including the necessary 8.4V DC to power the GH3 camera. This allows me to use the the GH3 in this Video Cage for longer run times. Links to the equipment in this video found below.

The GH3 has been a tough little camera to find at normal retail price. I've been thinking about a second camera body, and when I saw a deal listed under retail price, I just had to jump in on it. I've been really putting the GH3 to work lately, and it will be nice to have a second camera angle that can match up easily in post. These cameras have been backordered and out of stock at retailers, but not impossible to find. The ones that are available are marked up or on auctions via eBay (click here).

Just caught this listing for a few Panasonic GH3 camera bodies while I was searching for a second GH3 camera (NAB 2013 coverage). The listing does not show a photo, but the description has everything about the GH3 camera for sale. The eBay seller appears to be from the super store Buy.com, and has 99.7% positive ratings with about 2.5 million Feedback ratings (crazy!).

I just checked the Buy.com website and they show a few kits in stock with lens bundles. This looks very much legit and the best part is they are only selling it for $1211 while others who are still out of stock list the retail for $1299. If you've been trying to hunt one down, this seems like a legit buy. Check out the listing (click here).

Don't forget about the Sigma Lens Deal for Micro Four Thirds cameras that is still available, which gives you two fast F/2.8 prime lenses for the price of one (here)

Panasonic GH3

Thanks to Omar for pointing out this new GH3 Promo Video. There's finally an OEM battery grip showing on the GH3, and some of the text descriptions include up to 60fps frame rate, higher video bitrate ALL-I: 72MBPS, dust and splash proof magnesium body. Sounds like panasonic has a solid camera here with no hacks needed.
