If you're tired of waiting for your $995 Pocket Camera, or you have a gig coming up and need a camera right now - you might want to think about canceling your pre-order and getting a Panasonic GH3 body for $998 from Amazon (price good until 9/7/13).
Unlike the Pocket, there's no need to buy a hot shoe or an external battery charger to go with it - they're included.
As examples of what this camera can do, here are the winners of August's Hybrid Camera Revolution GH3 Film Festival. The categories are...(drumroll, please)....Narrative, Documentary, Travel, Mood, and Home Video. There were winners in only two categories this month (there are no rules, and the judging is completely arbitrary):
Documentary: The Barbershop by Rusty Earl
Travel: LA Vacation by Rob Woodward
Not bad for a $998 camera.
