'The Lumix DMC-G3 is the most well-rounded Panasonic compact system camera to date, offering a great mix of cutting-edge features, improved image quality, intuitive and customisable handling, and a very competitive price. '
'the camera feels fairly sturdy with the exception of the right side, which is capped by plastic with part of it being a door covering the mini HDMI and USB/AV port.'
'Shadow detail is somewhat limited, due mostly to the camera's noise suppression efforts.'
'consumers a great compact camera'
'Screen brightness is manually adjustable (five steps), though even with the brightness maxed, there's too much glare off the display's coating to effectively use the camera in bright, direct sunlight.'
'The White Balance control on the camera was very impressive.'
'It's great for shooting rooms, landscapes, and portraits, but it falls short in the telephoto department, making the Panasonic LX3 a difficult choice for an all-around camera, unless you're used to short to medium focal lengths.'
