    GH4 crash problem

    yeah, this happens every now and then: I start recording, then trying to stop recording but it just freezes. Have to do a battery pull. Happened in 96fps and 4k mode, haven't tried others. Can't really see a pattern...
  2. You need faster DSL to watch 15Mbit/s (megabit) content? This is amazing stuff, you could easily use this with the <video> element already and provide fallback support for non-chrome.
  3. did you try the 40fps burst mode with electronic shutter? I have small hopes that it captures in raw :)
  4. according to the pdf presentation it does 40fps with electronic shutter. Could this do some V1 style shooting? :)
  5. did anyone try the 40fps burst mode for some V1 style shooting? No raw unfortunately but maybe worth exploring?
  6. it sounds like you have a fair amount of control over your shooting environment. GH2 should be just fine but if you have the money, sure get the GH3. But GH3 is around $900-1000, for that you get GH2 and one of the nice SLR Magic CINE lenses..   Amen to this. Just buy a lens and start shooting, nobody else can tell you what you need. You will figure that out later yourself. If this is more of a hobby you wanna try out don't put too much money into it and buy too much stuff. You will get gear acquisition syndrome.     What did I do? I started with GH2, made some test shoots for a few weeks and then the GH3 came. Bought that and used for around 2-3 months (really liked it). But I ended up selling it waiting for the BMPCC. Got really frustrated over delays and just started reusing my GH2 that was starting to collect dust. Bought a nice lens for the GH3 money and couldn't be more happier!
  7. Full official specs: http://www.olympus-europa.com/site/en/c/cameras/om_d_system_cameras/om_d/e_m1/e_m1_specifications.html   At first I thought, fine, they just don't wanna add more programming cost to creating menu options with e.g a high bit rate mode. But looking at video specs it seems to already be two modes for 1080p, one "high" bitrate  24 Mbps and one lower 16Mbps.. So it's just tweaking of numbers, this was a deliberate choice, what is going on here?!
  8. So so sad, looked so promising. And focus peaking only seems to work with lenses that have electrical connection.   Is there anything we can do? 
  9.   This is where I saw claims of it being lossless: http://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/blackmagicpocketcinemacamera/techspecs     But agreed, reading more from forums and seeing video reports is really confusing  :wacko:
  10.   Lets not confuse things further with "visually lossless" and "true lossless" :)   It's either lossless or lossy compression. And BM states that the PocketCC does lossless compressed CinemaDNG, that's all we need to know. Is anyone e.g debating wether an unzipped text file reaaaaally is the same as the original? No :)
  11. Too bad there's no 50/60fps for the pocket cam. Would've been absolutely flawless, but I want it anyway of course  :)
  12. I think this thread sold a couple of dozen V1s :) Waiting for mine.. will try to make something out of my 5day swiss trip starting tomorrow.
