Panasonic have today released V2.1 firmware for the GH4. This gives us timecode and recording start/stop triggering over HDMI to Atomos devices such as the Shogun 4K recorder. The firmware also adds a few other features, read on to find out what they are…
I don’t use FCPX as my editor, and why should I use it to transcode media when we have Compressor for that?
The answer may surprise you…
The Atomos Shogun now has the major firmware release we’ve all been waiting for – playback.
I am experiencing a problem with Adobe Premiere which destroys the quality of Canon 1D C footage. It’s a problem which has always been attributed to the camera and others like it – banding with an 8bit codec. But actually, could the software you use to edit material play a role?
Two of the most exciting lenses for GH4 and BMPCC users at Photokina were the SLR Magic 10mm T2.1 and the Voigtlander 10mm F0.95. The SLR Magic wide angle is now available and gives you back your 24mm wide-end in 2.3x 4K mode. You could view it as an upgrade to the well regarded 12mm T1.6. Compared to the Voigtlander it has the advantage of less chromatic aberration, a stepless aperture and focus gearing designed for video use. Other than that it’s hard to do a detailed comparison because the F0.95 isn’t out yet!
I put the lens through its paces in Berlin and here are the results.
