To provide photographers with a broader perspective about mobiles, lenses and cameras, here are links to articles, reviews, and analyses of photographic equipment produced by DxOMark, renown websites, magazines or blogs.
As the equivalent to a 60mm on a full-frame camera, and with a 1:1 magnification focusing down to just 4.1 inches (15mm), the new 30mm macro looks perfect for normal shooting as well as for close-ups. Read on to find out how well this model performs.
Panasonic GH series of micro four-thirds cameras are some of the best all-round video and stills hybrid solutions currently available. Read on to find out how the new 4K capable Four Thirds sensor in GH4 performs.
Following on from the firm’s hugely popular E-M5 and E-M1 models Olympus has introduced a new ‘entry-level’ model, the E-M10, sharing most of the features of both siblings. Read on to find out how the new model performs.
We’ve had the opportunity to analyze the image quality of Panasonic’s high-end 16-Mpix Lumix DMC-GX7 mirrorless camera with over 70% of the native mount lenses that are currently available (for it). We’ve scrutinized a total of 33 Panasonic, Olympus and Sigma made lenses to assess the imaging characteristics specifically with the new camera. Read on to find out which of those models you should be using, and which, if any, you should try and avoid.
With a traditional looking design, the latest addition to Panasonic’s Lumix CSC range the GM1 is, arguably, the firm’s slickest camera yet. It has the same 16-Mpix-resolution sensor as the larger, rangefinder-style GX7, and although housed in a tiny aluminum shell it features a 3-inch touchscreen LCD, plenty of manual control and an electronic shutter capable of 1/16000th max shutter speed and 40fps burst. Read on to find out how this super-compact model performs.
Panasonic is refreshing older lenses in its line-up with a more modern looking exterior finish and, with this model, a new optical design that makes it smaller, lighter and more modestly priced than its predecessor. Read on to find out how well it performs.
Olympus always said the OM-D was a new line of cameras, and sure enough, after the delightful E-M5 the firm announced the flagship E-M1. With a new exterior design and a long-list of improvements over the E-M5, including a 16.3-Mpix Live MOS sensor with on-chip phase detection pixels, the E-M1 is being touted not as the replacement to the E-M5 but as the successor to the firm’s Four-Thirds E-5 model. Read on to see how well the new camera performed after putting it through our labs.
The GX7 is Panasonic's classy replacement for the rangefinder style GX1 and features a new, improved 16-Mpix sensor, a tilting widescreen viewfinder and rear screen plus built-in WIFI connectivity. The magnesium alloy bodied camera is also the first from Panasonic to feature in-body stabilization, but just how well does this $999 (body only) mirrorless model perform
As with previous guides, this review is intended to help you make the right choice when selecting lenses, in this instance, for the micro Four Thirds Olympus OMD E-M5 and the rival offering from Panasonic, the Lumix DMC-GH3. These two flagship models share not only the same mount, as partners of the Micro Four Thirds alliance, but in this particular instance, a similar 16Mpix MOS sensor as well. The prevalence of high quality primes (and let’s not forget zooms) for those cameras makes it, arguably, the most attractive proposition of any of the mirrorless camera systems currently available. Read on to see which lens models are the best performing in the range.
Following on from the enormous success of the OMD- E-M5, the firm has now upgraded its flagship PEN E-P model with a ‘5-axis’ stabilized 16-MPix MOS sensor. Read on to find out how well it performs in our labs.
Thanks for the great review. You mentioned that the GH3 had a 1.4 Mpix viewfinder (same as the Olympus EM-5 and other previous Lumix cameras) but it in fact has a 1.7 million dot OLED viewfinder. It must be the OLED because there is no comparison between this excellent viewfinder and the others. It is so good in fact, that I far prefer this WYSIWYG viewfinder to our Nikon 5100 optical viewfinder. Along with its smaller silent focus lenses and great video, it is truly the “Goldilocks” camera for serious photographers and videographers. There is no other camera like it!
"Color depth at 22.7 is excellent, Dynamic Range at 12.4 EV it best in class and ISO at 812 is only just behind the two Olympus cameras."
Actually, all of them are within a margin of error of your tests, so it is 99.9% the same sensor as the 3 2012 Olympuses (E-M5, E-PM2, E-PL5). DR of 12.4 EV is curios as the cameras have 12 bit RAW format. :)
When comparing the GH3 with other mirrorless hybrid cameras (price/performance) the video features of the GH3 should also be included in the comparison. The video specs are far better than any other hybrid or DSLR camera except at a much higher price.
