theSUBVERSIVE Posted February 17, 2014 Share Posted February 17, 2014 One thing I haven't seen mentioned or tested is the global shutter. I think this is where 4K Production camera will blow the GH4 out of the water with it's rolling shutter. Really, this is the main reason I would go with it over the GH4 in my opinion. A good example being: shoot hand held with a very long lens. It will be a mess of jello-vision on the GH4 but look normal on the Production camera. The 4K production camera will also look a lot better when stabilized too. I don't know, I kind of feel like the GH4 and the Black Magic Production camera 4K are going to be used in entierly different situation. Even though they are both going to be very nice and inexpensive 4K cameras, one of for DSLR shooting/run-n-gun while the other might be better suited for film work. We'll just have to wait and see. I think that only in a few specific situations the global shutter will matter that much, even more considering that the full readout should also help provide some improvements for the GH4. For once, if you use OIS, handheld should not be a problem. The main situation in which the global shutter will really matter is fast motion, pans, etc. In those more extreme tests for the rolling shutter it will show whereas the BPC will have none. But I agree, they do have very different purposes. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
