Olympus OM-D E-M1 vs Panasonic GH3 Specs Comparison Table

By on

Olympus has announced the OM-D E-M1 micro four thirds system camera. Olympus OM-D E-M1 specs comparison vs Panasonic GH3 camera is now available. Below are the specs comparison table with the full specs list of both cameras.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera features a 17.02MP Micro 4/3 Digital Live MOS sensor and a 4-CPU Venus Engine, which enable the GH3 to capture high resolution JPEG and RAW stills as well as intricately detailed HD video.

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 mirrorless digital camera is a compact, ergonomically design camera featuring a 16.3 megapixel Live MOSsensor and TruePic VII image processor. The OM-D E-M1 has on-chip phase detection, which promises to focus legacy Four Thirds lenses (using the optional MMF-3 adapter) at much faster speeds than previous Olympus m4/3 cameras.
