Panasonic GH3 pre-production samples from multiple websites hit the internets
It looks Panasonic organized a picture-taking event at the London Zoo for the Panasonic GH3 for UK websites because a number of pre-production JPEG sample pictures have appeared from multiple websites in a short period of time:
+ 70 JPEGs and a movie at Photography Blog
+ samples and ISO range color charts at ephotozine
+ 31 JPEG samples at Four Thirds User which notes that because it is a preproduction camera, Panasonic did not allow RAW files to be posted
+ hands on at Pocket Lint
+ hands on at Trusted Reviews [NEW!]
+ seven 1080p videos posted at Photography Blog [NEW!]
GH3 presentation in France
Not at the London Zoo obviously, Panasonic France had its Panasonic GH3 presentation, and Hybridcams.fr was there to capture the slides and the action.
