  1. I'm not talking about 4K downscaled - just native 1080. Obviously the GH4 has higher bitrates and ALL-I, but I could swear the stuff I'm seeing from the GX7 has less moire and/or aliasing than GH4HD, and is possibly a tad sharper too? I can't find any direct comparisons online. Does anyone have any experience or an opinion on this?

  3. I recently shot a music video with the GH4(in 4k) and GH2(1080) all the footage looks really good in preview playback but I notice a Gamma change with the .mov GH4 files if I open in FCP or VLC? I've had this problem with RED files and I just continued editing with the darkened gamma change because the files seem to correct themselves upon export. With that said I have a couple questions with how I should continue with this project or if there is a better way. My workflow plan right now is to Transcode first all of AVCHD GH2 files with 5dToRGB to PRORES 422HQ After that I'll import the PRORES files into FCP and drag a clip to the timeline and match the sequence settings to the clip because the final deliverable will be in 1080. My question is with the 4k footage and if this workflow makes sense? Should I import the .mov files directly into the 1080 sequence? or should I transcode the .mov files to 4K PRORES? I know importing the .mov files will slow me down because I'll have to constantly render but I don't want to lose image quality in conversion. My concern is the gamma will change and I wont know the true image quality until after I export. I just want to keep the images looking like they are. What would be some of your workflows when working with the same type media?
  4. Hi, I apologize if this has been answered somewhere before, but I have looked around a feew forums and come up short. Basically I want to use a european GH4 to record live events (>30min) with an external recorder. I am therefore wondering if it is possible to get long continous output from the GH4's HDMI out in standby?

    Lenses for GH4

    Hey - Recently just bought the GH4 and was looking at some Rokinon and SLR Magic lenses. I was wondering if I should get them MFT mount or purchase a speed booster and get the EF mount? I am assuming the crop factor will decrease if I get the EF and speed booster but the fact that I won't have to use a adapter with the MFT is great. Just want to get some thoughts on this? Also can anyone recommend other primes that are great with the GH4? Thanks
  6. I noticed Jupiter Ascending used Leica lenses. After a little research I found this: http://www.hurlbutvisuals.com/blog/2014/03/why-do-we-want-flat-glass/ The Cooke has distortion and less pleasing bokeh (only 5 blades), however it just looks better ("3D"). Testing cameras and lenses against each other is a useful exercise. I've been testing the GH4 against the A7S in studio lighting and the GH4 is looking better, especially in skintones. I had tweaked the A7S to look similar to the 5D3 and thought it looked pretty good until I did the same with the GH4. Under studio lighting, the GH4 produces nicer skintones and a cleaner image (+ 4K!). In December the Atomos Shogun will bring 4K to the A7S, however the GH4 will get 10-bit 422 4K at the same time (vs. 8-bit for the A7S).
  7. Just a short fashion film I shot during a photoshoot the other day. Its pretty much the first real thing I have shot with my anamorphic lens, mainly due to its lack of run and gun ability, but I found with the 35-70 things worked out pretty smoothly. Never had to swap out lenses and it performs very well. I did not use the new firmware update photo mode. Mostly 48 & 60 fps Let me know what you think?! (Ive got a 15second version on my page too)
  8. I don't know if this has been posted before, but here's Mauri Galiano's very nice test which compares the GH4's various aspect ratios in 4k "Photo" mode using a Bolex 16/32 1.5x, an Isco 1.7x and a 2x Proskar. This sealed my decision to finally pull the trigger on a GH4. The only limitation I see right now is it's only in 30p and 25p. Apparently someone within Panasonic is pushing hard for 24p. Otherwise the GH4 (except low light) is an embarrsment of riches. eris
  9. Hello my friends, Here is my first hand's on with the SLR Magic 10mm T2.1 I just received on wednesday in premiere, and also with their new variable ND filter :) SLR Magic 10mm T2.1 on GH4 4K and 96fps 1080p mode My very first impressions : solid, heavy (420g), compact, sharp at full aperture T2.1, only 8.5cm minimum focus distance. The ND filter : good first impressions, and two great options on it : lever and hard stop ! Perfect for video ! SLR MAGIC 10mm T2.1 (f1.8 eq.), most of the clips @ T2.1 SLR Magic ND variable filter GH4 4K cinema mode + 96fps 1080p mode Vcine mode with Andrew Reid presets (http://www.eoshd.com) No color correction Music : Trentemøller « Come Undone (Trentemøller Remix) »
  10. Here's a same day edit of a film from a destination wedding in Ludhiana, India. The couple wanted to play the film at the end of the day. It was completely shot on a Panasonic GH4, color corrected in lightroom. Cinematic Wedding Film Shot in India Your comments would be appreciated.
  11. 4th anamorphic exercise, now with +1 diopter. Shot in Tel Aviv, Nov. 7, 2014 using a Panasonic GH4 in 4K Photo Mode, 3:2 aspect ratio, Cine D. Lenses: Canon FD 50mm f/1.4, Rectimascop 48/2x anamorphic. Edited and graded with FCPX.
  12. Some other day I found this lens on ebay and did a little research. There are some photos out there that impressed me but I found only one video. To me the "look" seems great on stills. Does anyone here have some experience with this lens and would like to see some opinions about the combo mentioned in the title. Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english
  13. I've already the gh4 and I must buy either one very soon (12-35 or the lx100) but i want the sharpest. Does someone has the gh4 with 12-35 and the lx100 to make a 4k video comparison or advise about it ?
  14. Hi. I just wanted to show of my latest short film STORM. I shot it on the Panasonic Lumix GH4 with Kowa/Bell and Howell Anamorphic Please let me know what you think. //eric
  15. I got a brand new GH4 2 weeks ago from Adorama. The camera has worked perfectly thus far. Tonight I took it out to shoot some Halloween festivities. After taking a couple photos without any issue, I went to take another and noticed the EVF display was completely pink with a thin blue line (like 1 or 2 pixels wide) running down the left side. I actually snapped a pic with my iPhone: I've tried turning the power off/on, removing/reinserting the battery, removed/attached the lens (I have the Panny/Leica 30 mm 1.7), cycled through all the EVF/LCD display modes, swapped the memory card, switched between every mode, etc. but the EVF is only displaying a solid pink screen with a blue line down the left side. The LCD display works fine. However, if I switch the display mode for the LCD/EVF to auto or just to EVF, the screen is pink. Not sure how this could happen so suddenly. Has anyone else had this issue? Do I just have a bum camera? Having only had it for 2 weeks, I'm still under warranty (though this is the first time I didn't buy an extended warranty!) so hopefully they can just replace it or have it fixed free of charge! Thanks in advance for any info! Dave
  16. Greetings, I am looking for some banter on the topic of using native m43 lenses vs. a SpeedBooster + lenses Maybe you could provide both technical and anecdotal feedback on the following situations: 1. Video work - Narrative 2. Video work - Documentary 3. Photography In each domain you would discuss the Pros and Cons of native m43 lenses vs. SpeedBooster + lenses I just got my GH4 and thinking about either getting a speed booster and working with my current line of lenses: -Tamron 17-50 2.8 -Canon 50 1.8 -Samyang 85 1.4 OR Sell them all and use the cash to buy native m43 lenses. A third option would be to keep them and slowly add native lenses. I personally do both photography and video and selling my 5d3 to pay for new lenses or speed booster. Thanks in advance!
  17. Hello folks, I have a couple new wedding films to show, shot on the Panasonic GH4. As the months have gone by and projects have been completed I've grown more and more in love with this camera. At first I was really unsure of how I felt about it and it took some getting used to, especially the crop factor, but now it feels very natural on most shoots.
  18. Preface: I ve been pondering about the usability of panasonic GH4 or OM-D EM-1 as a main Photography camera. Yesterday I came upon a worrying bit of data that you GH4 owners might want to check out if you have the camera. When I was looking about the AF metering range of OM-D EM-1 and comparing it to the GH4 I found out other things on the imaging resource site. Performance test score says that GH4 shoots only 21 RAW images in series where as the OM-D EM-1 shoots the promised 50 . Panasonic GH4 (claims 40 RAW image burst) Imaging resource test = 21 RAW images and buffer takes 23 seconds to clear (sandisk 95MB/s) Olympus OM-D EM-1 (claims 50 RAW image burst) Imaging resource test = 50 RAW images and buffer takes 16 seconds to clear (sandisk 95MB/s) http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/panasonic-gh4/panasonic-gh4A6.HTM http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/olympus-e-m1/olympus-e-m1A6.HTM So if the data is right.. Panasonic has little PR thing in their hands again. I can safely say that Raw image buffer size is very important for pro photography. Needless to point out that the 12BIT raw images are not really helping GH4 either.. Why in the world they cant' they be 14Bit? Allso what I figured with a Metz AF 44-AF1 flash is that it does not seem to fire a a focusing beam on my GH2 or G6 bodies. I wonder that are all Panasonic models such that they dont support External flash focus beam? The feature is higly important when photographing indoors in poor light and when you cannot rely on the cameras own focus assit beam to reach far enough. So I'm asking that if any of you Gh4 owners might want to test it out. Use a sound recorder while you shoot a full Raw image burst with GH4.. From the sound recording file you can calculate the number of shots it was able to take before slowing down. Thanks in advance if anoyone is willing.. If the buffer is indeed only 21 images .. it could be something that Panasonic can fix via Firmaware or the test unit was pre production.. (I did not read the I.R. sites test that well)
  19. Aspect ratios including 4:3, 3:2, 16:9, and 1:1. Limited to 29.97P for U.S and 25P for 50Hz shooting. Shooters have the ability to shoot in Cine Picture profiles with full-manual controls. No 23.98 or 24P in PhotoMode. The 1:1 aspect ratio with a 2x anamorphic is a native 16:9. Internal recording at 100 Mb/s. HDMI output is still enabled! Might be a huge advantage to shoot anamorphic with a ShoGun after all! Will the GH4 embed the 1:1, 3:2, and 4:3 in a 3840x2160? I'm noticing a completely different grain structure in PhotoMode... Shot a 16x9 in 3840x2160 in Movie Mode and a 16x9 at 3840x2160 in PhotoMode and the grain texture in PhotoMode shows signs of compression artifacts not found on professional video or film cameras. Sorry. It's almost as if the sensor is acting differently. It's possible to notice the grain-structure change in 10x LiveView. The codec already has issues with recording in low-light, as seen by Dave Dugdale's GH4 vs. A7S demonstration (Dave's video mentions how a white background in low-light causes strange codec issues... I'm in a similar circumstance and it's helping to distinguish the new noise-floor patterns). This new grain texture appears to be present at ISO 320 and above. The white backdrop is close to 35 - 45% luminance values and not 80 - 95%). Needs more testing and proper lighting. Also, I'm under a 5200k CFL and not a professional non-strobing video light. However, this may be distinguishable in future tests with proper lighting and at low ISO values. Keep an eye out for it. Other info about 2.0 firmware... - - No new Gamma Picture profile. - - No 23.98 in 4096x2160.
  20. Some moods testing the new photo mode in the 4:3 ratio with my 2X kowa anamorphic adapter. More in the description. Very nice feature to have now.
  21. Long time lurker, first post here. I bought the GH4 shooter's guide a couple days ago and it helped me seal the deal on the GH4. I've also got an Atomos Ninja Star handy for 1080p 10-bit 4:2:2 capture. So, the GH4 just arrived and I've been going through the guide in more detail, along with getting familiar with the camera, and I came across this statement: I was wondering, before I get into my own test shots, if the recommendations for Cinelike D/V settings are different when outputting to this recorder than they are in the guide for internal codec use? I'm particularly curious about the Flat profile and possibly flattening the curves even more - would there be any benefit to doing this with 10-bit colour? Just curious... I'm still waiting for the right HDMI cable to ship in so can't test it myself yet.
  22. GH4 new 4K photo mode firmware in anamorphic 1.75x quick test Here is a quick test with the new firmware V2 "photo mode" 4K in 16:9, 3:2 and 4:3 Sorry I forget the 1:1, anyway for my 1.75x anamorphic... :P GH4 4K photo mode baby Berthiot Hypergonar 1.75x lens Qioptiq LINOS MeVis-C C-mount 35mm f1.6 @ f1.6 with the diopters and f4 for the others shot SLR Magic 1.3x + 0.33x diopters Vcine mode with EOSHD setting Premiere Lumetri 60's color correction + levels adjustments
  23. Testing out the new Metabones Speedbooster Canon EF -> m43. Really loving it, and working with Sigma ART lenses it just sings! I really want that shallow depth of field look, and it works a treat. Of course it's really hard to focus at F1, worse using a vari-ND filter too (vignette and darkening of the corners at the highest setting). Paired with the SLR Magic Anamorphot it has a great look!
