GH4 crash problem

Recommended Posts

EOSHD Pro Color for Sony cameras EOSHD Pro LOG for Sony CamerasEOSHD C-LOG and Film Profiles for All Canon DSLRs

The Panasonic G6 also crashes alot needing a battery pull , especially when reviewing files if you shuttle through the images in playback mode it cannot handle the data and crashes .

What would you say the frequency of the problem is?

 

not in Hz, more like how often does it lock up?

This has happened to me half a dozen times with the GM1. I recently replaced the SD card, don't know yet whether that's the solution. It's a bitch, because it's intermittent, if I send to Panasonic in Hong Kong or Singapore, you can bet they won't find anything wrong with it.

yeah, this happens every now and then: I start recording, then trying to stop recording but it just freezes. Have to do a battery pull. Happened in 96fps and 4k mode, haven't tried others. Can't really see a pattern...

Yup happened to me four-five times. But also notable, it happened with me quite a lot with Canon DSLRs also, especially the ones that came out after the 5d mk II/7D/t2i generation (mk III & 6D & 70d & t4i/t5i)

-The thing is these camera turn on almost instantanously so it doesn't bother me much even on paid shoots. It takes a couple of seconds to turn on again. And it never happens whilst recording or lose footage (for me) so I am fine with it

Hmm does seem like a noted issue. I don't think it'd hurt me too much, but it's nice to know about such issues

Happens alot shooting pictures burst mode for me. have the Sandisk 64gb 95MB/s U1. Not with lower spec'd 45MBs strangelu enough. Not experienced hang ups shooting 4K video at all. Use the 45MB card for 4K as well, no problems.

It's really annoying for events and reportage. You have to trust your camera will not crash.

Yes indeed, I did think that, but I would never pick it for events or reportage, so I neglected to mention. I'd go with a 1080p camcorder like C100 or FS100 at least, just because they do it all without workarounds!

 

For the kind of stuff I'd use it for, more narrative and promo, I can't imagine it's a huge problem, but still quite a bummer. It doesn't inspire confidence...

Yep one thing is choosing the tool for the job another thing is feeling unsafe because something can crash. That makes the whole "hybrid" definition for this camera a nonsense for me.

What in the world does hybrid have to do with this topic? Crashes aren't something unique to hybrid cameras... At least my lowly GM1 has good company - the $7,000 Leica M Typ 240 ;)

jon I'm talking about video mode: a Gm1 can crash, a G6 can crash and a 5D can crash because they are not "hybrid"; they have video but as a bonus.  hybrid means "equally capable of both stills and video".

My GH4 crashes after shooting a time lapse and choosing the option to save the files to a movie. Happens every time, regardless of image file type or resolution. I sent an email request to Panasonic and waiting for an answer.

I've definitely experienced this with 5DIII and it sucks, but the files are never corrupt. Are people experiencing corrupted files from this? Also, is anyone experiencing this with the recommended U3 cards?

      The camera is in excellent condition without any marks.

      Well, it’s been 8 months since I completed this and almost a year since I promised @mercer to post it once completed

      I don’t really know what to say about this, it’s my first short and I wanted to try this medium after trying music, photography, drawing/painting and all sorts of writing in order to figure out myself and my depression.

      It took me months to complete due to my mental state and lack of energy and I intended to post this sooner, but life can be a little too much sometimes. Or very often in my case.

      Even though it was the hardest creative thing I’ve done in my life, (despite having a background or experience in most of the separate artforms that make up a film) I was really lost in the entire process and I developed love/hate relationship to it. I wanted to quit all the time when I wrote it, when prepping, when shooting and during the long, motivational drainage that is editing.

      But I guess that’s also where the love was born. No matter all the mistakes I made, I could somehow save it and make a decent first short thanks to the editing by re-arranging the pieces I had. Throw away most of it, stretching what was left of it, slowing or speeding up some of it, playing some of it in reverse. Dubbing in new sound (needed, cause most of it was unusable. Note to self: Don’t forget sound!

      I’ve tried to make another short since, but haven’t completed the shoot. I don’t know if I’ll finish that one, it’s just a silly comedy I made with my then girlfriend, now fiancée on my phone (This one was shot on the DVX200 before anyone asks, cameras are important on this forum apperantly, hehe) because she wanted me to make something less depressing, but I guess I’m just a gloomy guy, all my new ideas are based on my different malfunctions.

      Hopefully I’ll work up enough energy to make another, I really want to.

      Anyway, enough talking. I hope you’ll give this a go and give me some pointers, but go easy on me, okay?

      Now, pick you poison:
