June 28, 2016 Andrew Reid (EOSHD)

I reduced the price of the Panasonic GH4 Shooter’s Guide last week to just $9.99 and it has sold well, therefore I am extending the half-price sale to the entire range of EOSHD Shooter’s Guides for the next 7 days only. If you’re looking to dive deeper into your camera knowledge or are even just curious about what the books offer – now is the perfect time.

BMCC variant Speed Booster works on GH3 and GH4 to give 1.28x crop, near full frame

April 30, 2014 Andrew Reid (EOSHD)

I had hesitated to try this for so long, but finally today a brave EOSHD reader sent me a tweet saying he had fitted his BMCC Speed Booster (with protruding rear-glass) on his GH4. It just goes straight on. First a BIG disclaimer. Speed Booster adapters have adjustable glass which can sit closer or further away from the sensor to fine tune infinity focus. On some adapters this will mean potentially it may clash against the inner housing of the mount and be damaged on a Micro Four Thirds stills camera. Therefore I do not take responsibility for any loss or damage if you try this.

Panasonic GH4 – Slow-mo at 96fps and 4K rolling shutter test

April 14, 2014 Andrew Reid (EOSHD)

All tests based on pre-production model Here we come to some areas which aren’t perfect on the GH4, but which nevertheless are both a step forward from the GH3. I like what Panasonic have started here with 96fps slow-mo. This is the first consumer camera to deviate from the video standard of 60p to give us a genuinely useful creative tool which sets the ball rolling for improvements in future models.

In depth test – 5D Mark III and 7D raw video vs Blackmagic Pocket vs GH3

October 21, 2013 Andrew Reid (EOSHD)

68GB worth of material was used to get a studio based test this finely tuned, with the cameras matched in post as close as possible. This effort to remove the variables of grading and camera settings leaves behind a truer picture of the differences in hardware capabilities. The 5D Mark III raw (from Magic Lantern), if it were a film stock, would be Fuji. Warm vivid colours which may need taming a bit in post. The Blackmagic is more Kodak, cooler and more muted, it often requires the opposite treatment in post to the Canon cameras. The 7D is totally

Panasonic G6 Review – the GH2 Redux

July 23, 2013 Andrew Reid (EOSHD)

Buy the Panasonic G6 on eBay The G6 achieves a certain yin-and-yang. With the GH3 now occupying a higher position in the line, the G6 has moved up to occupy the position once taken by our much loved GH2. It shares the same sensor which of course was always pretty special for video, yet adds a lot of significant new features like 1080/60p, a faster processor, high resolution LCD and something the GH3 doesn’t even have – focus peaking.
