Echoing Joe, Andrew, please tell us what settings you used on your GH3.

It's the factory natural picture profile. Most of it is shot at 24p 72mbps with a few 60p for slow mo and of course a few raw time-lapse shots with the intervalometer. No real grading just a few exposure tweaks.

You grant me more power than I have. The OP asserted people were dismissing the GH3 over the BMC. As an owner of a GH3, I asked why someone should get a GH3 over a BMC. For those wanting an image acquisition device, its apples to apples and the two are fare game to compare. In fact, it's why I posted in the thread... trying to ellicit factual information instead of all the hyperbole.

Re: GH3 in San Diego

For me, this is not an either/or. My GH3 is very close to film with its DoF control and resolution, but its 8 bit color depth and 10 stops of DR make it susceptible to video-like blown highlights and unrecoverable shadows.

So, after I saw John Brawley's test footage, I went ahead and preordered the 10 to 12 bit, 13 stop DR Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera from Adorama (for less than the price of a 12-35 lens :)).

It is true that the BPCC doesn't take stills, has no intervalometer, and lacks 1080/60p, but for high contrast scenarios - outdoors especially - I will use the BPCC.

When I need to shoot stills, time lapse, or 50mbps 1080/60p action or slow motion - I will pick up the GH3.

With the same lens mount, mic & headphone jacks, and codec compatibility (.mov and ProRes) - these cameras will be a great complement to one another.

Cheers,

Bill

Re: GH3 in San Diego

Those are great points Bill. It's intriguing to get 13 stops of DR at this price range.

Absolutely. There is no one perfect camera for every situation. Different tools for different jobs. I plan on getting a pocket camera as well. It's a no brainer.
