Hi guys, I've been a lurker in the forums for quite some time now, but this is my initial post. I received my GH4 yesterday and have been playing with different setups. This is the best so far. Regular shoulder-rig with cage. A RÃ¸de shotgun mic with pistol grip attached to a super clamp which is attached to the cage. Sounds like a bad idea, but works wonderfully, and are easy to detach. There is no wiggle or instability. The RÃ¸de is connected to the Zoom H4N which is connected to the Panasonic. I've had great results so far with my testing and its hard to tell the difference between the GH4 Audio and the H4N recording. You can of course record audio with the recorder and have great referance audio in the GH4. Works really good when you don't have a designated audio-guy. // Johannes
Hi all, long time lurker first time poster I guess. I made a review video for a shoulder rig kit I bought a little while ago, then realised I didn't really have anywhere to share it (again, habitual lurker) and here we are :) Kinda the reason I decided to do this review is that I tend to be pretty nervous buying gear from brands and companies I've never really heard of and can't find any reviews for online. I imagine I'm not alone in this feeling, and I've lurked as you all lust and argue over higher end rigs like Redrocks, Tiltas, Lanpartes etc, kinda wishing I had the money to afford one. I thought some of the lesser known brands (Proaim, Camtree, other weird ones you find on ebay) had some nice looking rigs that were in my price range if I saved but I couldn't find any reviews and I really hate wasting money. In this case I ended up biting the bullet on this kit, a Camtree Hunt III Filmmaking Kit (yeah, it is probably is a copy of a similar Tilta rig) and I've been really happy with it. Camtree have actually added an audio splitter to the kit since I bought it for the same price, so it's even better now I guess. You do get a lot of bits for what you pay for (matte box with flags, follow focus, very nice handles, rods, a battery mount & cables, etc) and the quality is quite good, but I've waffled enough. Have a watch and let me know what you think, and if you have any questions feel free to ask (I've added a massive amount of little comments to the Youtube description too), I don't want to seem like I've just randomly shown up to be shill or anything ^_^ Here's a link to the site I bought it from if you want to have a looksie: www.proaimshop.com/pas/CAMTREE-HUNT-III-DSLR-Filmmaking-Kit.html Cheers, Brad
