12.1 Megapixel Live MOS Sensor – achieves superb image quality that rivals or even surpasses digital SLR cameras. Even in low-light conditions.

3D Stills – Shoot amazing 3D still photos with the optional Lumix 12.5mm 3D Lens (sold separately) that you can view later on a 3DTV.

Ease of Use - precise button placement and a simple, logical menu interface work together to make operation easy and intuitive.

iA+ (Intelligent Auto)  - been put off by complex DSLR controls? The GF3 features Intelligent Auto+ that makes automatic shooting a breeze. It features simple background defocus, brightness, and colour control sliders on the touch screen so you can get DSLR-like results without having to know all the ins-and-outs.

Extended Battery Life – get up to 340 shots on a single charge

Built-in Flash – in spite of its compact size, the GF3 includes a built-in pop-up flash 

Full Time Live View - lets you see what you're shooting with a field of view of approx. 100%.

Mega O.I.S Optical Image Stabilisation - compensates for hand-shake to help prevent blurring, so you get sharp, clear shots.

Light Speed AF – faster focusing achieved by the GF3’s advanced contrast detect  AF system 

AF Tracking with Touch Screen Operation - Once the AF subject is selected by touch control, it continues to track the subject - even if it moves - until you press the shutter. Great for sports, kids, animals etc.

Full-area focusing with Touch AF - set focus on any point in the 100% field of view! Great for setting the focus point on objects near the edges of the frame.

Face Detection AF/AE with Face Recognition - detects and recognises pre-registered faces and automatically optimizes the focus and exposure settings.

Intelligent ISO Control - detects subject movement and automatically adjusts the ISO setting and shutter speed to best suit the movement and light conditions – helps prevent blurring.

Intelligent D-range Control – optimizes the exposure for each part of an image, preventing blocked shadows and blown highlights and helping ensure that gradation and details are reproduced nicely.

Intelligent Scene Selector – automatically detects and selects the correct scene mode for the shooting conditions.

Dust Reduction System – helps eliminate dust collecting on the sensor that shows up as spots on your images, typical of interchangeable lens cameras. 

Creative Control and Photo Style Filters – choose from a range of artistic colour filters for video – Expressive, Retro, High Key, Sepia, High Dynamic and Miniature Effect. Photo Style filters also work in video mode.

In-camera Video Editing – do basic edits in-camera - saves having to edit your movies on a computer.

Photo Style - you can manually choose from 6 colour types and 3 monochrome types - even when shooting movies - to get even more creative images

RAW file format – file format that allows greater adjustment of various camera settings on your computer after you have captured your images, without losing image quality, such as adjustment of colour balance, exposure, etc.

High Quality Sound - A microphone, featuring Dolby® Digital Creator, on the upper body records dynamic, true-to-life audio that brings out the power of your HD videos.

Mic Level Adjustment – allows you to adjust the sound recording level manually
