Stoked - Just Got a UPS Tracking Number for my GH3!

Sweet.  I ordered on September 18th and it is scheduled to arrive on December 4th.  I didn't think it would get here until Christmas.  Good job, Panasonic.  Good job, Adorama.  You can get yours for $1299 from Amazon here or from Adorama here.

I will post some side-by-side stills and video with my unhacked GH2 as soon as the GH3 gets here.

Canon T3i closing out - $599 w kit lens!

With the arrival of the T4i, Canon is discounting the still very capable T3i.  Readers of this blog will know that I recommend the Panasonic GH2 at this price point for video - but if you shoot more JPEG stills than video - or if you already own EOS lenses, Canon makes great cameras for the money.  In time for the holidays, the T3i is now $599 with the 18-55mm kit lens at Amazon new  - and even less than that refurbished.

Panasonic GH2 with 14-42 kit lens for $499.99 at Amazon!

Let the games begin.  With the imminent arrival of the GH3, the markdowns of the venerable (but still capable) GH2 begin in earnest.  As of today, November 19th, 2012, the GH2 with the 14-42 kit lens is listed for $499.99 at Amazon.  I'm pretty sure this is a one-day pre-Black Friday sale - but this is the same pattern we saw with the GH1 when the GH2 was released.  Pretty soon, it will be hard to find a new GH2 - at any price.

Get 'em while they're hot!
