My cameras and kit

  1. A black & white test in slow motion of dancers on a parisian rooftop.
  2. Just a quick video testing out a Sigma 35-70mm f2.8-4 canon FD mount I found at a local camera shop for $20. It seems to work better as a taking lens than my canon FD f1.4 for some reason, not sure why. It does have a flat front element. From what I have read online most people weren't very happy with sigma zoom lenses in the FD mount, as far as the overall quality. it was all shot wide open around 39/41mm except for the 3rd shot which was at 70mm. I had heard you could use a 35mm + anamorphic on the gh4 without any vignetting but it is pretty severe when I try.
  3. So Panasonic apparently just announced a 30mm 2.8 macro lens. It seems decent on paper. What I would like to see is a pro level 50,60 or 75mm 1.2 weather sealed Leica 42.5 quality macro lens with image stabilization (since panasonic does not have inbuilt stabilization) This kind of lens would work double duty as a portrait lens and as a macro lens. The MFT world is growing nicely. This new pro level 40-150mm 2.8 zoom from Olympus seems honestly good enough. Likewise I'm happy to hear about the upcoming 300 F4 prime from Olympus. What kind of lenses would you like to see b
  4. I've been using the SmallHD DP7 and loving it, but it's pretty heavy. Using it on top of my GH4 with a hot shoe swivel head is clunky. It falls down all of the time. Comes loose. You name it. I searched the market for anything that would attach both sides of the monitor allowing for swivel, and a sturdy grip. Found nothing. I decided to build it myself out of parts found on eBay, and B&H. Here are the links to parts I used: CAGE: http://www.ebay.com/itm/FHUGEN-HONU-V2-0-VIDEO-CAGE-Kit-with-Top-Handle-HDMI-Clamp-for-GH3-GH4-A7-A7R-/231302638084?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35dab6
  5. I’ve been asked to do a movie with longer clips, no digital zoom effect, movement, no indian ;) … Here it is ;)
My impressions ont the lens : 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 ! A sunday afternoon in the parc Majolan (SLR Magic 10mm T2.1 on GH4 4K) SLR Magic 10mm T2.1 on GH4 4K and 96fps 1080p mode This is my second movie with the upcoming SLR Magic 10mm T2.1(eq. f1.8), and their upcoming variable
  6. Hi everyone, I've just received today the upcoming SLR Magic 10mm T2.1(eq. f1.8), and their upcoming variable ND filter ! My very firsts impressions : solid, heavy, compact, sharp at full aperture T2.1, only 2cm minimum focus distance. The ND filter : good first impressions, and two great options on it : lever and hard stop ! Here are some pictures of the lens and of the variable ND filter, photo stills and video stills from GH4 C4K footages (most of them @ T2.1). THE COMPLETE SET OF PICTURES IS HERE : https://www.flickr.com/photos/43243778@N04/sets/72157646791136410
  7. HELP! MPEG Streamclip won't touch it, Final Cut Pro 7 won't think about it... how can I convert my Panasonic GH4-created 96fps mp4 files to work within the FCP7 environment? Thank you all so much for any insights you can provide!
  8. Comparing the complete set of Rokinon cine-style lenses at 4K
  9. Still having some aspect issues, but my aerial shots were a hit with my local church.
  10. Testing the sharpness of the Rokinon Cine 85mm with Lens Turbo on the Pansonic GH4
  11. I posted this in the DVXuser group but thought I'd ask/post here also. If anyone has advice etc much appreciated. We are shooting a TV show using a number of different cameras but primarily on Sony PMW 200 for action and GH4 as second camera's for CU's, inserts and cutaways etc. In post we are going to try and match them in colour/look. How successfully this can be is an unknown? I'm Wondering if you have used these cameras together on a shoot and have any insights as to what to expect in post or on set to try and get them to work well together. For example a typical scene might in a mecha
  12. Hi my dear anamorphic friends ! here is a "Scarface's like" wedding :) and my brother's wedding :) all this was shot in GH4 4K and 1080p 96fps happy end of the summer ! :)
  13. Look here fore an interesting camera shootout!: - with high-end cameras like the Alexa, Red Dragon, Epic, Sony F55, Canon C500, Blackmagic Production Camera 4K, Sony FS 700 4k, - and also lower priced rated cams, like the 5dmk3raw, GH4 4k and Blackmagic pocket camera... Guess the camera...:)
  14. Hiya Guys! I'm new to this forum and will try to be as clear as possible. :) I'm about to buy new gear for videography pretty soon and have already chosen to go for the GH4, that i will use with these lenses : Voigtlander Nokton MF 35mm f/1.4 (77mm with crop factor), Nikkor 35mm DX (56mm with speedbooster), Nikkor 50mm FX (80mm with sb) and a Nikkor 18-55mm DX (28,8-88mm with sb). I applied a 2,2 crop factor for Voigtlander lenses and 1,6 for the Nikon ones (DX and FX). Is this correct? I keep seeing different crop factors all over the internet. The main use will be documentary
  15. Hello to everyone! I would like to buy some decent moderate wideangle for GH4 but have limited budget unfortunately. I came down to these 3 options: 1. Used Zuiko 14-54 f2.8-3.4 MK1 4/3 mount + electronic adapter (MMF-1 or MMF-2) - 190€ 2. New Panasonic 14mm f2.5 - 180€ 3. Used Sigma 18-50 f2.8 EX DC Macro Nikon mount - 160€ wideangle needs to be useful for both outdoor and indoor shooting. Since I allready have BMCC nikon speedbooster (0.64x) to me the best option seems Sigma 18-50 f2.8 but I cannot find anywhere how sigma behaves, especially on 18mm with the
  16. Canon cameras sell very well because they make people look great by creating very pleasing skintones. Apparently for technical reasons (silicon sensors, etc.), Canon makes skintones look great at the expense of color accuracy. ARRI is the undisputed* King of Color Science and reading about how to make a C300 somewhat match an Alexa may be helpful in setting up new cameras such as the GH4 and A7S to produce more pleasing skintones (at the expense of color accuracy): http://provideocoalition.com/aadams/story/color-matching-a-canon-c300-to-an-arri-alexa Art noted that digital cameras do the b
  17. My Panasonic UK saga regarding the GH4 audio issue. 2 weeks ago I called the Panasonic UK service centre to ask them if they were aware of the problem, they said they had a bulletin from Panasonic and were aware of the problem. They suggested I send the camera in for repair with a 7 to 10 day turnaround. As of this morning, 2 weeks later, Panasonic have still not been able to provide them with the part. I have suggested that they replace the camera but Panasonic have said any new cameras in the UK would still have the problem. They are suggesting that the part will not be in the UK for another
  18. Hi folks, I'm a total newbie when it comes to shooting video, so please bear with me. I've recently had a chance to play around with a GH4 and a few lens (Leica 25mm f1.4, Lumix GX 12-35mm, and a Nikon 50mm with adapter). I was wondering if there was a way to get clearer focus with the 25mm lens? Just when I think I have something in focus, I notice a lot of fuzziness around edges (see my example below): I shot this test at f1.8, ISO 400. In comparison, here are stills from all three lenses: Leica 25mm: '> 12-35mm: '> Nikon 50mm: '>

    gh4 sensor spots

    Hi everybody! I have just bought a GH4 and noticed some sensor spots (they are more distinct by f22 and they gradually fade away until they vanish at about f11). They look like dust spots but they aren't since they remain at the same positions and they won't go away with a blower or sensor cleaning. I guess it's not a big deal but I'm wondering if anybody else has come across sth like that.
  20. Hey guys. Another short i shot. GH4 Anamorphic. M42 mount taking lenses and a 70's Vivitar zoom. Another model 1 on 1. 70's vibes and shooting. the 2k pro-res looks awesome, one day vimeo should get there shit together!
  21. Hello! I'm a video producer and i'll be getting a new camera anytime soon but i can decide on wich camera to buy or if i'm supposed to wait for a while. I'm trying to decide between a GH4, A7s, 6D, 5D3, and some others, more expensive like the C-100. Everyone of this cameras concerns me about some things. The GH4 concerns me about the lenses, the MFT mount. I have some canon lenses, nothing great or expensive, but i know they are easier to find, more versatile. And when i wrote to Metabones, asking about the speedbooster MFT-EF, they answered pretty rudely (i guess they get that q
  22. I have previously been shooting pretty much everything at C4K witht he system frequency on 24 (you have to for C4K). I shoot football so I will need to shoot slomo a lot too. If I understand correctly, the best way to shoot 60fps slomo is recording the FHD 200M at 1080p60 with the system frequency on 59.94 rather than leaving the system freq on 24 and using variable frame rate.. Problem is, you dont want to be changing the system frequency during a game. Is the best way just to leave system freq on 59.94 and use UHD 4K rather than C4K? Or is there a way to quickly toggle between C4K and 10
