The video recording capability comes with more variety of options in its format and bitrate to meet wide-ranging needs. It is packed with advanced technologies developed by Panasonic for its professional broadcasting equipment.
The DMC-GH3 gives you 1920 x 1080 60p [NTSC] / 50p [PAL] full HD recording in MOV, AVCHD Progressive and MP4 format. Progressive scanning records every frame, so the amount of data contained is twice that of interlace scanning, and the images have extremely high definition.
• 60p (NTSC) / 50p (PAL) video recording is available in MOV / AVCHD Progressive video recording (not available in AVCHD).
• To set 1920 x 1080, 60p (NTSC) / 50p (PAL) video recording in MP4, firmware must be updated to the latest version 1.1.
In addition to 60p (NTSC) / 50p (PAL) operation, you can freely set the frame rate to 30p (NTSC) 25p (PAL) or 24p according to your intended use.
The DMC-GH3 is capable of recording ultra high bitrate video recorded at 72 Mbps (ALL-Intra) or 50 Mbps (IPB). And it is capable of recording continuously for an unlimited time*.
* In the model for PAL areas, motion image can be recorded in 29 min 59 sec.
When recording the video in MOV, AVCHD Progressive and AVCHD, the DMC-GH3 automatically generates multiple seamless files for continuous recording. During playback, the AVCHD Progressive / AVCHD files are reproduced with seamless, interruption-free continuity.

The time available for recording varies depending on the environment, the interval between recordings, and the manner of use. Actual recordable time is the time available for recording when repeating actions such as switching the power supply [ON]/[OFF], starting/stopping recording, zoom operation etc. *6 With LUMIX G X VARIO 12-35mm / F2.8 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. (H-HS12035) (bundled lens in the DMC-GH3A). *7 With LUMIX G VARIO HD 14-140mm / F4.0-5.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. (H-VS014140) (bundled lens in the DMC-GH3K).
The DMC-GH3 also embeds SMPTE-compliant Time Code, which makes it easy to synchronize the multiple video footage or sound source in the post production workflow.
* Available in the model for NTSC regions.
Right from the design stage, the DMC-GH3 pursued a hybrid structure for still and video images. A heat-dispersing design was used to enhance video shooting and enable extended recording of high-quality images.
