GH4 4K Fireworks

Took the new GH4 to the 119th Sequim Irrigation Festival Fireworks. I thought it would be good to use the Cinema 24p at 4K on the camera. That’s right, the camera records at 24 frames per second just like a film motion picture camera. None of this 24.976 stuff to NTSC. Just set the camera to 24.00Hz (CINEMA) in the Setup menu under System Frequency and the camera will only record 24p. Now we really have a motion picture camera. This is the first 4K test with the new camera that I am publishing. I recorded the footage at 100mbps … Continue reading

Slow Down GH4

For my first test of the new Panasonic DMC-GH4 I decide to see how the variable frame rate works. Answer: It works real well. I am very pleased with the slow and fast motion. The way they have set it up is very straight forward as you will see. To have these capabilities in a camera so small and reasonable in cost is amazing. Just a few years ago it cost thousands more. Panasonic has really given us a lot to work with. Looking forward to actually use this feature on a paying shoot. I feel my clients will be … Continue reading

Unboxing the GH4

So far I am very happy with the Panasonic Lumix GH4. The features are wonderful and I like that Panasonic has listened to it’s customers. This is a very impressive camera indeed. This unboxing video does not have footage from the camera or goes into depth of features. Those videos will come very soon as well as the full review. This is just a look at the camera.

The Rumor of Death is Totally Untrue.

The recent rumors reporting that micro 4/3 format is going to be dropped by Panasonic and Olympus is totally untrue and a very bad April fools joke. The joke was reported when it was April 1st in Japan. This type of false reporting does our industry no good and a lot of harm. In this Internet age any kind of speculation can be drawn to the maximum exposure. Why people are doing this escapes me. There is no reason for this kind of stupidity. Pundits have been writing about the death of micro 4/3 format for many years now and … Continue reading
