Panasonic Lumix GF3 Caters to Casual Photographers

Panasonic adds a new compact micro four-thirds digital camera to its GF series. The GF3 is comparatively smaller and lighter than the GF2. Unlike the previous model, the GF3 does not have a hot shoe and is then replaced by a pop-up flash. This feature may tick off some serious photographers, but it seems this camera caters to the casual hobbyists.

What the GF3 retained from its predecessor is that it has the same sensor and image processor at 12 megapixels that can even record a 1080i-quality video. It also has a 3-inch touchscreen on the back that you can tap to magnify, focus, and even change settings.

The Panasonic Lumix GF3 will be released depending on which lens you want. The 14mm F/2.5 model will roll out on July for $600, while the 14-42mm F/3.5-5.6 version will arrive in August for a total of $600.
