  1. I've been experimenting with EOSHD Pro Color the last few days, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Amazing! Thank you Andrew!
  2. Good idea! I wrote an email to Panasonic, but they will probably tell me that everything is ok. I can live with the fan noise, but I don't want the rattling noise to be recorded. I should try and get a new one.
  3. It's from Amazon. IBIS seems to work fine, but there is this rattling noise when I shake or tilt the camera. Yesterday, I slowly tilted the GX80 downwards, and at some point there was that "clack" again. Camera up, camera down, clack! I don't know... Maybe I should get a replacement? Can you confirm that you REALLY don't hear anything when you tilt your GX80? Just point it to the ceiling and tilt it down towards the floor. Anyway, it's not the lens. The clack noise is also audible when no lens is attached.
  4. If I turn on my GX80, I can still hear that "clack" when I tilt the camera forwards. That sound gets recorded by the mic, it annoys me. Apart from that, I really like this piece of equipment.
  5. Ok... But that "clack" when I tilt the camera forwards doesn't inspire my confidence. It's hard to believe that this internal movement helps stabilize the image, rather than make it jittery. Not to mention the clack sounds being recorded by the internal microphone. Well, let's see... I need to charge the battery and start capturing some footage.
  6. Yey! I got my GX80 today. I've never had a camera with IBIS, so I wonder if it's normal that there's always some sort of wobble going on inside the camera body. It feels like a rather big component has come loose... :D
  7. Seems like I should try every single picture profile, and then decide which one suits my needs best. Until now, I just had to grab my BMPCC and hit the record button. No need to think twice about the settings. The GX80 will finally give me 4K, but it will also take me back to the time when I got my GH2 and had to mess around with the settings. Back then, Andrew released the very helpful GH2 guide, which finally stopped me from messing around with the settings, as he already did it for me. Anyway, as there is obviously no consensus on which GX80 picture profile is well-balanced and gradable to some degree, I will have to find the time to experiment on my own. Some say that iDynamic is useful, others say it will just make the noise more obvious. Some say that contrast and saturation set to -5 will "tame" the image, others say it will do nothing but reduce color information. It would be great if you experienced GX80 users could share your settings, so that we can compare them and see what they might have in common. Just a short overview of the settings you rely on. That would be very helpful. Thanks everyone!
  8. So which settings would you suggest, Andrew? Which profile is the one you would use most often? Thanks everyone for your help!
  9. Has anyone figured out what's the best all-round picture profile that still leaves some headroom for playing with the colors in post? I'm coming from a BMPCC and will be getting the GX80 next week, but I don't have much time for experimenting with the picture profiles. Maybe some experienced GX80 users could share their favorite settings with me? Some say that "Natural" (everything -5) seems to be nicely gradable, others say that "Standard" is the better all-round setting. What are your observations?
  10. Ken Aqua, thank you for the test. What do you think causes the problem? A misaligned lens mount on the camera or the SB with a slightly skewed lens element?
  11. Ken Aqua, I couldn´t figure it out to this day... It´s rather frustrating. Do you habe exactly the same problem with the left side being slightly out of focus?
