    I am looking to buy a new camera for the zenmuse evo and I am between the sony nex 7 which i know has been tested and works good. Is there anyone that has flown the GH3 and had good or bad experience with it? Any feedback is helpful. I am hoping to buy the right camera first.

    Matt not sure if it is on Vimeo or YouTube but Casey at QC did some side by side comparison videos. Actually mounted the cameras side by side on a custom length cross bar.

    Casey's side-by-side comparison was Nex-5 and GH2

    MombasaFlash welcome to the forum. Would you be kind enough to change your user name to your real first name and last name, please? The reasons for this (and how to do do it) are explained here: http://forum.freeflysystems.com/index.php?threads/real-names.497/.

    Thanks for the correction. Looks like it was Ben Rowland who did a comparison. HERE

    No, that compares the GH2 and the GH3.

    There is (was?) a Nex/GH2 side-by-side comparison video that was shot in the car park right outside the QC shop. Don't know where it is though. Maybe it is on Casey's private Vimeo page - can't remember what that is either! Something like 4to400 ..?

    I am a GH2 shooter and work in a camera store and play with a GH3 all the time...I love it!! Waiting for Vitale's hack before I go ahead and buy one. Here is a video by Yonder Blue that gives a good idea of how it is. I have heard a lot of favorable review from aerial guys regarding the GH3!!

    Ok GH3 great video, better that the Sonys CX or PJ but can it beat the stability and the zoom of the Sony cameras

    IMHO it's the Sony BOSS system that's in the CX760V and others.

    +1. Definitely, the Sony BOSS.

    Actually, I've been looking into this, and Panasonic's "Power O.I.S." system that's in the Panasonic 12-35/2.8 lens coupled with the GH3 is supposed to be pretty neat. Canon's IS system, by comparison, is solely in the lenses themselves, and the bodies are unaware of this function. I'm supposed to have a GH3 early next week to do some testing, and I'm optimistic that it'll hit the sweet spot for both stills and video.

    Steve I think I am one step behind you! I might be pulling the trigger on this in the next few days. It's pretty hard to beat that price range too.

    Folks still seem to waiting for the GH3 hacks. Last time I looked at the hack site sounded like they were still working on it.

    What kind of remote shutter cable can you use for the GH3? I see one on QC's for a GH2 that works only through the MK stack. Anything else out there?

    Are the GH3 hacks just settings or doing more to record raw? Can you run magic lantern yet or is that what people are waiting for?
