I was tickled pink when a representative from Pixel Pro‘s marketing department wrote to me if I could review the Panasonic G3 and GF3 system cameras. I’ve always dreamed of being a gadget blogger since I just love all sorts of gadgets and cameras. I told them I was just an amateur shoot and pointer and they didn’t mind at all.
I guess they picked me because I’m a die hard Panasonic camera user. I actually started this blog because of the Panasonic LX3 I bought in 2009. I bought that camera based only on the rave reviews I read in several local forums. My first pictures were taken in hotel restaurants in Hong Kong and I wanted to share them with friends and family in the USA so I started a food blog.
At that time I didn’t know anything about composition, aperture, white balance or cropping. All I did was set the camera to IA and point and shoot.
When I saw the GF1 I immediately sold my GH1 and was immensely happy with it for more than a year. My pictures improved and the burden on my shoulders lightened.
I took it for a test shoot at Salcedo market. Can you believe it was my first time to visit this Saturday market? It was hot and really sunny and the electronic viewfinder came in really handy. If I used my GF3 I wouldn’t have been able to see anything on the lcd screen.
I like these healthy cookies and bars.

The Panasonic G3 was just as good as all the Panasonic system cameras I’ve used. The pictures were sharp and the controls were easy to navigate. If I wasn’t so intent on having the smallest and lightest micro 4/3 camera I would have bought this. It has a flip out screen, electronic viewfinder and a hot shoe – things my small GF3 don’t have.
