Bruce Logan (whom we had on this episode of the Digital Convergence Podcast) has written and co-DP’d a new short that features the Panasonic GH3 (even tho it hasn’t been announced – should come out tomorrow).

We also gave you the rumored feature list of the Panasonic GH3 yesterday – plus, 43rumors says they have the full spec list.

I’m very curious to find out what your thoughts are on the look of the GH3 footage that you see in the video below. Is it cinematic or is it video like? If you read the comments on the vimeo page, you’ll see that people are all over the board on this one – some think it’s fantastic looking and others think it looks very much like a video camera. I found it interesting that in one of the very first scenes that there was a big old dust spot right in the middle of the screen and stayed there for several seconds (which surprised me – but hey, I’m not perfect either!)

Skin tones look very good and the image appears sharp – which is something the GH2 is famous for. What do you think?
