My cameras and kit

  1. This is something I haven't seen a lot of people talk about, especially in a video/film context. What happens to low light performance when you need DOF that isn't quite so shallow? I'm thinking GH4 vs A7S here but feel free to chime in with whatever experiences you've had. Take the A7S at f/2.8 and ISO 1600. Wonderfully clean image, substantially cleaner than a GH4 at f/2.8 and 1600. But that GH4 is delivering way more DOF thanks to the small chip. So if we equivalence up the shots a bit, our A7S is now at f/5.6 and ISO 6400. Can it still compete with the GH4 on image quality when we're a
  2. 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. Zoom Angenieux 15-150 C-mount T3.1 f2.8 on UHD GH4, no crop Zoom Angenieux 15-150 "type 10 x 15b" C-mount T3.1 f2.8, always used wide open on this movie Shot on GH4 24p UHD 3840x2160 200 ASA Run and gun style No crop Cinelike D mode -2 -5 -5 -5 0 Edited on Adobe Premiere CC, with Lumetri Cinematic 2 color effect
  4. 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 PRORE
  5. 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?
  6. 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
  7. 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 prod
  8. 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)
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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 ?
  15. 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
  16. 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, sw
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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 a
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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!
