Good Value for the Price

Any review should always be taken with a grain of salt, keeping in mind, what some people consider important, others will not. Also a 5 star rating would mean that this product is perfect and there was nothing wrong with it. Truthfully, I have not tried every feature available on the GX3, but, thus far, I have been quite pleased with the quality of the photos and video taken. The autofocus for photographs work extremely well in bright light and I have not had any difficulties in low light. I have taken time lapse as well a night shots, and I am quite pleased with the results. I have shot 1080p at 30 fps with the auto settings as well as manual settings in bight light as well as low light. The autofocus worked well for both settings; however, the autofocus does struggle when the lens is extended to it's full range (600 mm), keeping in mind that I was shooting surfers without a tripod. It would be reasonable to expect that shooting anything, fast moving and over 200 mm, you should be using a tripod anyways to steady the shot. The range and quality of the 24-600 mm is amazing for the price as well as an aperture of f/2.8 to 5.6. Mirrorless cameras with interchangeable lenses, although more features, not always better quality, are overrated. The lenses amount to thousands of dollars and are not that fast. I like that the GX3 is weather sealed, which makes for an ideal travel camera .. quality + versatility + portability + price. I am accustomed to having a view finder, and there are instances where it would definitely have been an asset; however, having a built-in viewfinder for Canon would mean that the size of the body would get bigger, moving towards SLR size or M5 size. Instead of carrying a camera and a video camera, I am just using the GX3. Overall, I am quite satisfied with quality, features, and portability.

Very good semi-professional camera from Canon

If you are looking into your 1st camera and wants good balance between high quality pictures and video this is the one. Great lenses, excellent zoom and easy to use touch screen makes this camera a perfect all around for any location; has perfect weight, grip and size for one piece of equipment. Also works good as high-end gear for those that are not willing to be a professional but wants good results without the dangling lenses that DSLRs cameras has but you have to be willing to pay for it. Consider to buy the original Canon hood with 67mm filters, external micro and a tripod to be fewer step over to a professional shooting within a low cost overall investment. Viewfinder is a expensive feature to buy for those who think out its absence is a deal breaker.

Ideal bridge camera.

I chose this camera over small sensor compacts and multi-lens DSLRs. It has a great zoom and superb image quality throughout the zoom range. It delivers crisp images in difficult light conditions, especially when compared to my other compact cams. This Canon lacks an EVF and 4k video but these elements are not that important to me as they are to some. In short, this is a good choice for someone who wants superior quality over compact cameras and doesn't want to fork out thousands on DSLR lenses and deal with the hassles that come with them.
