  • GF2-style touch screen interface
  • 1080i60 AVCHD shooting (from 25p sensor output)
  • All-area AF point selection
  • 'Pinpoint' AF mode (magnifies focus point to allow confirmation and fine-tune of AF position)
  • Tracking AF in video mode
  • Picture-in-picture manual focus magnification

Comparison between Sony NEX-C3

Viewed from the top down, the simplicity of the two cameras is again evident. Both have shutter and movie buttons on the top plate alongside the power switch, but precious little else. They're also essentially the same in terms of body thickness and (non)pocketability with their respective kit zooms attached.
Here's the GF3 alongside its most obvious direct competitor - Sony's hot-off-the-press NEX-C3. The two are very similar in size: the GF3 is a little bit taller, with a circular bulge on the top plate to accommodate its built-in pop-up flash (the Sony requires an additional bolt-on unit). Meanwhile the C3 is fractionally wider but squeezes in a larger APS-C sensor.

Images which can be viewed at a larger size have a small magnifying glass icon in the bottom right corner of the image, clicking on the image will display a larger (typically VGA) image in a new window.
To navigate the review simply use the next / previous page buttons, to jump to a particular section either pick the section from the drop down or select it from the navigation bar at the top.
DPReview calibrate their monitors using Color Vision OptiCal at the (fairly well accepted) PC normal gamma 2.2, this means that on our monitors we can make out the difference between all of the (computer generated) grayscale blocks below. We recommend to make the most of this review you should be able to see the difference (at least) between X,Y and Z and ideally A,B and C.
