My (production model) GH3 test footage 'Stained Glass, Bare Wood'

Recommended Posts

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.

Thanks very much guys :)

I had the hacked GH2 before this and I feel that the GH3 handles dynamic range and sharpness a little bit better.
I'll admit though it's not a huge leap when you consider the price difference.

However features like the headphone jack, OLED screen (which looks gorgeous, much easier to focus from), wi-fi functions and 1080 50fps shooting help justify the upgrade for me.
Not to mention what [i]could[/i] happen if the GH3 ever gets hacked!

Not too sure about the moire. I've noticed it on any of my shots, but I still need to shoot more to know for sure.

Weather sealing is a huge plus for me as well! Able to comment on low light/high iso performance yet? Would love to see a comparison to the GH2 and know if its improved

Still need to experiment more with low light shooting, but from the little bit I've done it feels cleaner at high ISO than the GH2 (hacked or not). I saw this video online yesterday, which shows off the high ISO performance:

Please note, I didn't shoot this!

Just got my email from Amazon today!! Shipped!

I wanted to see who would ship one the fastest so I preordered the first day from B&H, Amazon and Adorama. For some reason everything I preorder from B&H now is always released later than everybody else. I thought they were on top.? :-(

      Hi all,
      I've been a long-time reader of this blog/forum and wanted to report back on my first paid documentary commission that I just delivered.  The project was for a local community outreach project that links in education and culture with Carnival arts (http://www.thenewcarnivalcompany.com/).  I spent since last January (on and off) filming 4 schools and community groups as they learned about the theme (70 years of India's independence) and how that learning influenced the making of thier Carnival costumes.  The last 3 minutes of the documentary is essentially a music video of the final parade through the town of Ryde, Isle of Wight.
      I filmed everything with 2 Panasonic GX80 cameras in 4k using primes indoors (mostly native Panasonic lenses with some Voigtlander 17/42.5).  For the Carnival itself I used the 12-35 and 35-100 2.8 zooms.  Everything was handheld except some of the multicam wides and the interviews.  The cameras were great as it was easy to be incognito, film in the historical sites, and the cameras were not intimidating to those I filmed.  I shot in standard 0, -5, 0, -5 and only focused on exposure and skintones when colour correcting.  The auto WB actually worked very good.
      The audio was a mix of built-in camera mic, Shure VP83f, Rode SmartLav+/TascamDR10, and Instamics.  I also tried to use the http://www.ohrwurmaudio.eu/ binaural microphone to better capture the ambiance of the carnival, but in the end I didn't get around to syncing it or using it.  The Instamics (although quite visible in the interviews) were so useful as I could get the kids to put them on themselves and didn't have to worry about touching, and wiring up lavs.
      Some lessons learned:
      I had to move really, really fast as it involved kids and the teachers and leaders were busy - it was really run-and-gun.  I missed having the audio input as I could have got better ambiance audio without having to sync - syncing is a pain.  I wish the GX80 EVF was better as manual focus is hard enough.  S-AF on the native lenses was key as I could ensure focus and cut out the hunting.  I need to learn more about and practice audio post production and improve my editing.
      There are some obvious faults (interview eyelines, cluttered backgrounds, slight focus issues, IBIS panning judder, under/overexposure on unmanned b-cam) but overall the client and the organisations that funded the project were very happy with the film.
      It took me about 70 hours of editing with 15 hours / 700GB (including multicam) of footage.

      I wanted to see which Picture Profile on my G7 give the best skin tones, as well as the general differences of each one. All profiles are set to -5 Contrast, -5 Sharpness, -5 NR, -1 Saturation (except Vivid which is -2). The only grading is a contrast curve (I also added grain). Lens: Canon FD 28mm 2.8 w/ Focal Reducer (shot wide open). Shot in 4K, 500iso, 3200k color temp.
      CinelikeD seems to yield the flattest image and maybe the most dynamic range, and it's the profile I've used the most for that reason, until now. I kinda think CinelikeV might have better skin tones. Aside from Vivid and Monochrome, most of the others barely look any different from each other. All of this is subjective of course, but I thought other G7 uses might be interested.

      Recently created a new (one-off) LUT for the Panasonic GH2 because like me, I know there are people out there who still use (or would love to get back into using) this soon to be forgotten gem of a camera for video. Though it's not free, it's still cheaper than a Golden Arches Meal and worth checking out the page even if it's just out of curiosity. Thank you.
