My cameras and kit

  1. Hi guys,   Long time reader, first time poster. I have a small production company, we shoot some studio stuff weekly, and venture out making some comedy sketches, and soon we hope to be doing some slightly heavier drama. we always strive to make our stuff look great, but we're a small run-and-gun team. We work out of backpacks with mostly handheld kit.   We need a new camera. One we can sync our H6N into, use in the studio with our Autocue, our Stedicam and take out on shoots. We've narrowed it down to the 700D(T5i), the GH2/3 (? same ?) and the A57. Can you offer any advice?    Important factors are :   Form factor Ease of use and battery life FPS Lens availability usability (Focus peaking would be nice...)   Thank in advance - and before I'm lambasted I know this will have been asked a hundred times, but trawling though all the posts will take an age....
  2. Hi guys! I just wanted to give the heads up in case there's anyone interested in this (and I believe there is, considering how big the GH2 user base is here at EOSHD, the site that got me started!)   Here's the link: vimeo.com/ondemand/3737   At $2.99 it's very affordable, I think you should all give it a chance. I've already bought it but haven't watched it yet. "Musgo", in case you happen to be one of those who don't know, is a Spanish feature film shot entirely on the Panasonic GH2 with an early 44Mbps hack and three lenses (Tokina 11-16mm, Nikkor 28mm f2.8 and Nikkor 50mm f1.4 if I remember correctly) over the course of one week. It has awesome cinematography.   Gami Orbegoso (director, cameraman, editor, color timer, etc.) is very kind in sharing all the gear he used and other info on the shoot. There are a couple of behind the scenes that can be seen here, with several answers to many possible questions you might have on the making of the movie: https://vimeo.com/33456753 https://vimeo.com/57277710
  3. Hi guys, I just got my first Panasonic camera after reading many reviews on it - the GH3. I've been trying to figure this out and found a few dpreview posts in which most say it can't be done, but some say it can, without providing an explanation. Frankly I seriously can't believe this limitation exists. Someone please tell me I missed something.. I wanna film in 24p, set aperture to 2.8, exposure to 1/50th (since 1/48 isn't available) and use AutoISO. Like I have for many years, on other cameras. Except of course there is only ISO 200 to 6400 available. I have a variable ND filter but that doesn't replace AutoISO. This is a vacion movie so I want a good balance between good quality and ease of use... Any ideas? Cheers, Raphael
  4. Hi, An excavation into the attic unearthed an old TOSHIBA COLOR VIDEO CAMERA ik-1900 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Owners-Manual-Toshiba-IK-1900-Color-Video-Camera-/230389930914) It has a Nikon TV-nikkor zoom macro 12.5-100mm 1:1.6 lens which i have unscrewed out of the camera and wish to use it on my Panny GH2 but have no clue what mount to use to do the same. I tried asking all the DP's and techies i know but they have no clue on the lens. Even google hasnt been able to help at all. Can someone who knows their lenses well share any info on this and recommend me a mount for this lens for my GH2? Links to the right mount or names will be much appreciated.  
  5. https://vimeo.com/67606128 A summer day in a boring small town in the mid 90's.   This is my latest short film, and more or less the first narrative short I've done.   There are some minor dialog in Swedish, but you probably won't miss out if you don't understand. The story is mostly told with visuals.   It was shot on a Panasonic Lumix GH2 with the "SANITY" hack.   Shot on the following glass: Panasonic 14mm f2.5 Pancake Panasonic 14-140mm f/4-5.8 kit lens Helios 44M 58mm f2 Vivitar 28mm f2.5 Fujian 35mm f1.7 C Mount CCTV Lens from ebay   Edited in Adobe Premiere Pro. Color Grading in After Effects.

  9. Hello everybody I'm selling my hardly used AGC disable cable form dslrcable.com I'm in europe, buyer pays the price. Feel free to make me an offer, as I know it hasnt got much value but still maybe someone needs one instead of it laying around my house. Thanks
  10. Hey guys, After finally having the time to shoot and edit something with my GH3, here's the finished project! Shot this for my friend's band.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMfJANcv0Uk
  11. Hi everybody!   Need some good advice. I've decided to buy a camera for free-lance film making.   What i need:   - 95% for film making - excellent low light performance - superb colors - maximum details in shadows - fast one - not so expensive... :)   I wanted to make also commercial-like films and short promotional clips to Hotels with girls in room or something like that for example Miss Hotel xy, etc.(dont joking...).   One of my friend mentioned me Panasonic AC90. Is it a good camcorder? Can it be better than GH3 or 5D3? Any advice can be useful. Wait for Your replies!   THANKS! (sry for my english) Balázs

    GH3 ISO Test

    I've uploaded some test footage from the new Panasonic GH3.    The first portion of the video contains fairly even lighting with tests from f2.8/ISO 200 - f16/ISO 6400. The second portion introduces a hot spot via a desk lamp. Test are from f4.0/ISO 200 - f22/ISO 6400.    Gradation looks very good in the bright areas of the footage. Blacks are fairly consistent throughout. ISO 200 - 800 appears damn fine, as far as noise is concerned. ISO 1600 fairly good and easily workable.  ISO 3200 is usable. 6400 is useless.   https://vimeo.com/58314941
  14. There were all the rumors about GH3 that gonna shoot 720p @ 120 fps like LX7 and FZ200 but unfortunately Panasonic decided to turn it down.   Ever since LX7 became the very first pocketable camera that shoot 720p @ 120fps, CES 2013 panasonic just announced 20x zoom ZS30 that can shoot 720 @ 120fps. YES! which means you can literally get similar high speed quality from FZ200 which can perfectly fit in your POCKET.   samples below to view the quality of FZ200 in high speed recording: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0tL-TC8FGQ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8R1tcs-qF8 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6V0LJTuhhY   I am quite certain that the camera industry is actually capable of making consumer cameras to film 1080p 120fps NOW but they decided to delay it for marketing purposes. I am so keen to see an incredible pocket camera like RX100 that can shoot at such level if http://www.engadget.com/2012/09/23/aptina-unveils-1-inch-sensor-with-120fps-1080p-video-likely-for-nikon/ is true.   All the cameras I mentioned above cost around $300-600.
  15. Finally put my GH3 through it's paces and I got my anamorphics too.  I shot the local teen group EMKE Hawaii live at Hard Rock Cafe Honolulu's 25th Anniversary celebration.  But to shoot all anamorphic, well you can call me crazy I guess.  Shooting dual focus is no joke, and I really had to change my thinking in terms of zooming and framing.  The videos below are from the middle of the set when I finally got a hang of it.  Well sort of, some shots are still soft.  I can say that I'm happy with the performance of the Sankor and Eiki 16D (pretty much the same lens).  Both are sharp if focused correctly.  The LA7200 I could never get good results past 50mm, so I just use it wide angle, in this case 17mm.  Overall the GH3 works very well, and I think I have a good combination here.   Wide Angle Shot - Panasonic GH2 w/ Flow Motion v2.02 hack, Panasonic 14-42mm kit lens @ 17mm, Panasonic LA7200 Anamorphic lens, ISO 1250, F4.5, 1/80sec, Vivid (-2,-2,-2,-2)   Medium Shot - Panasonic GH2 w/ Flow Motion v2.02 hack, Canon FD 50mm F1.2L, Eiki 16D Anamorphic lens, ISO 1250, F4.5, 1/80sec, Vivid (-2,-2,-2,-2)   Medium/Close-up Shot - Panasonic GH3, 24P 72mbit MOV, Panasonic 45-200mm lens, Sankor 16D Anamorphic lens, ISO 1250, F4.5-5.6 (zoomed), 1/80sec, Vivid (-3,-5,-4,-5)   http://youtu.be/N2RsGEoWtkM   Edit: Sorry forgot to add that the LA7200 is 1.33x, the Sankor/Eiki are 2x anamorphics.  So I cropped the Sankor/Eiki to fit into a 2.35:1 space.  Sorry no super-wide look, I needed it to match the LA7200.
  16. My question is about mixing footage specifically from Sony to Panasonic (or secondly Canon) cameras. In my experience each company has a color profile, and within a brand cameras tend to match decently out of the box.   I am a Sony owner of an NX5U video camera and have had experience mixing footage with Canon videocameras and DSLRs.  The colors do not match perfectly,  but for my wedding clients it is passable.    Does anyone have knowledge of how well pana + sony might mix? I'm wondering specifically how well the Sony NX5U might match with a panasoinc GH2/3 (used as a b-cam)?   I'm considering purchasing either a Sony NEX series (NEX 6) or a GH2/3.  But I don't want to have to color correct all my footage to match with my workhorse NX5U.   Thanks, .David
  17. [b]Stained Glass, Bare Wood[/b] https://vimeo.com/54234207 Picked up the GH3 this weekend. I owned the GH2 since day one and was very impressed with it. So far the GH3 has been even better, some of the best quality DSLR footage I've seen. I'm looking forward to finding more about what this little camera can do. ~ Mike
  18. Take a look at my last work to date. Lot of work on this one ! I shot 720p50 with shutter 1/100 with voigtlander 25mm and olympus 12mm. [media]http://vimeo.com/50419773[/media] Thanks for watching.
  19. Hello everyone, I'm relatively new here considering my post count, but I've been reading these forums for quite a long time now and I'm at the brink of buying a Panasonic GH2. So first of all, which kit to buy? I think I will use this camera mainly for run and gun docu/event shoots (low-light?!), but I like to do some pseudo-artistic hobby shoots from time to time as well. I thought of these options; 1. GH2 with 14-140mm kit and a Voigtländer 25mm. 2. GH2 body (or with the 14-42mm, as there's not much of a difference in price) with a Rokinon/Samyang 24mm and 35mm cine lens. Or should I wait for a longer focal length cine lens as 24 and 35mm do not make such a huge difference for a starter kit, right? Both kits end up being somewhat in the same price range, but I'm a little bit concerned with investing a lot of money in a M43 lens collection, that's why I added option 2. I also like the Cine-versions of the Rokinon lenses, as they've got click-less aperture and follow-focus gears (I already have a Gini rig with Follow Focus). With the Voigtländer being a F0.95 lens and the Rokinon a T1.4, is it a night and day difference in lowlight? (If you'll pardon the pun and ignore the lowlight performance of the GH2 in general). Second question, filters. Should I buy a 77mm variable ND (with step-up rings of course) or should I invest in a mattebox with 4x4 filters. Which of these two options will bring me longterm value for money and convenience? What are their pros and cons? Well, thanks for reading. Jon
  20. Please take a moment to vote: [url="http://kwiksurveys.com/app/showpoll.asp?sid=ftrgvl7xb4iso8j21673&qid=21673"]http://kwiksurveys.c...=21673&new=True[/url] At the $1300 price point, 770 votes would represent a potential million dollars in sales for Panasonic. If this poll gets enough participation, I will draft an open letter to Panasonic with the results. If you are interested in using the GH3 as a filmmaking tool, please cast a vote and share this with your fellow filmmakers.
  21. Could anyone tell me please if compatible batteries will work ok with the Panasonic GH2 with the latest firmware installed? I heard somewhere that Panasonic blocked the use of third party batteries with one of their firmware upgrades and I wondered if this information is correct? Is anyone using the compatible batteries from 7dayshop.com?
  22. My first steps into the video world. I've been photographing for 10 years but found a new hobby in video :) This clip is made for the [url="https://vimeo.com/blog/post:513"]Vimeo 'Magic Hour' Weekend Challenge[/url]. [media]http://vimeo.com/47478586[/media] Used my Panasonic GF3, learning to work around the limitations (no manual exposure). I hacked it with the EOSHD 44mbit hack for the GF2, seems to work fine. Lenses: Minolta MD Rokkor 135mm f/2.8 and 28mm f/2.8 with adapter. Some light colour correction (white balance / curves) in Sony Vegas.
  23. Hey guys and fellow GH2 owners.. I'm trying to decide between the Pancake 20mm F1.7 or the Leica 25mm F1.4... I know right, I don't owner either of these two lovely lens.. I may end up getting both in the end, but because have to buy one at a time, I ned to choose between them.. I'm slightly leaning towards the 25mm Leica, because of it's name, the nano lens that 20mm does not have, and F1.4 vs. F1.7... However SO many more people own the 20mm F1.7 and it may be because its cheaper.. at about $356 vs. $500... Any one have some nice photo shots of the 25mm leica and 20mm pancake? Would like to compare them through images.. Also the Panasonic Fisheye is a bit expensive, and the Panasonic 14mm F2.5 Prime pancake looks nice, wish the aperture was bigger.. I would get the Noktor 12mm T1.6 before the 14mm.
  24. Hey guys.. I need to hook up with some Panasonic buddies!!!! I have no body in the area who loves and shoots video like me. Its dead over here as far as filming and cinematography community..
