Hi! I have a Canon T2i and wish to upgrade. I have been looking at the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3, which I really love the image quality of, but I'm concerned it will be too big and heavy. My preferences: Budget I'm thinking of paying around $1000 dollars for the body. Size I love the feel and stability of holding a big DSLR body, but in a few months I will be backpack travelling for more than half a year, and I'm therefore forced to consider size and weight relevant factors. I was looking into mirrorless cameras when I fell in love with the GH3, which to my great disappointment turned out to be even heavier than the DSLR I own today. Are there any smaller/lighter mirrorless cameras in the same price range that can compare to the detail and image quality of the GH3? If not, quality is first priority. Features I prefer shooting in Manual mode, so it is a big plus if there are quick and easy ways to tune the ISO, shutter speed and aperture. I'm not yet decided on what kind of lens I want. I want the pictures to be detail rich. General Usage I will mainly use my camera for filming. I will not be making big prints of my photos. The camera does not necessarily have to be good in low light, but it's a plus if it's at least decent. Thank you!!
