Hello all! I am new here, so this is my first post/thread here ever.
Today I got my Panasonic Lumix GH3. Before I have used Olympus OM-D E-M5 and Fujifilm X-E1/X100s for video recording. I have never used a camera that allows me full control during video recording before.
I ordered the GH3 because I am going to make a documentary movie about a motorcycle club during this coming summer. They ride together every Monday during the summer period. I am going to follow them.
I am going to record video from the places they visit, maybe some video during their rides. Making interviews etc.
During autumn after the season is over - I am going to edit the movie and burn it to DVD:s. Then sell the movie to the members of the motorcycle club (a few hundred members).
The selling point of this documentary is the nostalgic value. It doesÂ´t need to be the most professional looking movie. But I would like to make it as good as I possible can.
I have a few months to prepare myself, training video recording with the GH3.
I would love to get some tips of what I need for this project. Rigs (for walking), shotgun mics etc.?
I live in a PAL-area; what frame rates are recommended; 24p, 25p, 50p for different situations (interview, motorcycles moving...)? In full manual does it go the double shutter speed over the framerate (like 1/50 for 25p etc.)?
All tips are deeply appreciated!
Olympus EM5 body costs: 800â‚¬
Panasonic GH3 body costs: 1200â‚¬
Both are shooting 60fps both have 16mp sensor.
I believe that Olympus EM5 is the best camera for that price & that it has the same video quality with the Panasonic GH3 (i am telling that cause i've seen a lot of compares), correct me if i am wrong!
Here is a very nice Olympus EM5 video
Today was a lovely day. The baby blue tits flew into the wide world and I tested some settings on my camera and my new ND filter. Hope you like the quick edit. I like my new ND fader.
