Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 photos

The GF3 packs a lot of camera into its relatively compact design.

I've been reviewing hardware and software, devising testing methodology and handed out buying advice for what seems like forever; I'm currently absorbed by computers and gaming hardware, but previously spent many years concentrating on cameras. I've also volunteered with a cat rescue for over 15 years doing adoptions, designing marketing materials, managing volunteers and, of course, photographing cats.

Small and stylish

Though it lacks a hot shoe or option for a viewfinder, the GF3 is a compact, attractive camera with a very cleverly designed flash; you can hold it back with your finger to bounce the light or simply to reduce the intensity of the light hitting the subject.

Touch screen plus controls

The well-designed user interface combines usable virtual controls with physical ones so that you can use whichever you're most comfortable with.

Thin

The camera is pretty thin when equipped with a pancake prime lens.

Grip

If you're not comfortable with small cameras, the shallow grip probably won't help much.
