My lordy lord. Best compact for m43 user ever made? Seems like it. There's no audio jack but who actually cares about that on a camera of this size for its intents and purposes.

OLD

When do you expect Panasonic to announce the GH5?

As early as Photokina or the first week of February 2016 (two years after the GH4)?

Do you expect a new 4/3 sensor or s35 size for more light (higher ISO)?

If s35, do you expect a different mount or just more MFT lens that cover the new Sensor?

Will there be a new Cine lens released at the same time?

Will it have a H265 codec option?

Will it have a larger and/or lighter (monocot) body?

Will there be more programmable options for the buttons?

Will it be capable of recording 6k or 8k internally?

Will it have higher frame rates like 1080P120?

How long after the announcement of the GH5 will they keep making and selling the GH4?

GH4 problem reactivating V-LOG after v2.6 firmware update http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/16123/gh4-problem-reactivating-v-log-after-v2.6-firmware-update Thu, 01 Dec 2016 03:08:36 -0700 jpl 16123@/talks/discussions After updating to firmware v2.6 I'm trying to reactivate my V-LOG activation key. After entering the cameras activation code on the Panasonic website it says "ERROR!!: This key code is already used with another product" . I presume the problem is that the activation code must now be linked to a specific version number. Any one else experienced this problem of know of a work around?

Panasonic GH1 SD Card Door http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15579/panasonic-gh1-sd-card-door Wed, 24 Aug 2016 08:44:32 -0600 adamxp12 15579@/talks/discussions OK so I have been a reader on this forum for quite a long time, even before I made an account, but this is my first post, I have a GH1 which I still think is an awesome camera for the work I do, I don't see the point in spending lots of money on a newer model if the GH1 does all I want + without the stupid EU 30 minute time limit thanks to the hack, I like to do timelapse's and so the no limit recording time is a feature that only a brand new GH4 can support but £1k is way too much for a 17y/o to spend on a camera

So that's where this comes in, the SD card door on my GH1 recently broke, not sure how but it has, it don't latch properly at the front of the camera making it protrude, I saw a post about this on personal-view where someone fixed it by gluing a needle to it, but with quite vague directions, the only other solution I can think of is either buying a used G1/GH1 just for a door, or to somehow figure out how to fix my door

Does anyone have an idea of how it can be fixed? pictures would really help here as I have no idea what a non broken door looks like, its not one of them things I really paid attention to before it broke

  • November 28th release

Panasonic is introducing a second advanced compact camera, the FZ2500. This camera utilizes the same 20.1MP 1" MOS sensor as the LX10, but optimizes video performance with the inclusion of DCI 4K video recording and a true 24 fps frame rate, in addition to more conventional UHD 4K and Full HD recording modes. Also benefitting videographers, this camera includes Panasonic's CINELIKE D and CINELIKE V picture profiles for better grading capabilities, and V-Log L can be added via an optional upgrade. Additionally, high bit rate recording up to 200 Mbps is supported in both MP4 and MOV formats; video can be output over HDMI with a 4:2:2 10-bit signal; there is no recording duration limit; and a built-in ND filter can be used for enhanced control over exposure settings while recording.

More than just a video-optimized camera, however, the FZ2500 also sports a slew of specs for stills and movie users, such as a 50 fps continuous shooting rate with an electronic shutter, or 12 fps with a mechanical shutter, and an expanded sensitivity range of up to ISO 25600 for working in dim light. The built-in 20x Leica DC Vario-Elmarit f/2.8-4.5 lens covers a 24-480mm equivalent focal-length range, and 5-axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ controls the effects of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. A free-angle 3.0" 1.04m-dot LCD touchscreen permits intuitive control and viewing ease from a variety of working positions, and a 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder is also available. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi also supports wireless image sharing and remote camera control.

Why Panasonic exposure so simple and limited? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15142/why-panasonic-exposure-so-simple-and-limited Sat, 28 May 2016 12:33:19 -0600 Vesku 15142@/talks/discussions GH3, GH4 and other high end/professional Panasonic cameras has severe limitation in video exposure options and features. Many pocket cameras and cell phones has more versatile exposure. Why Panasonic has decided to leave many basic exposure tools out of the tool box? Lets look the GH4:

-not showing basic exposure information (aperture, shutter and iso).

-no auto iso in M with EV comp although it has a dedicated EV comp button. In fact I can not find any other reasonable use for that button than EV comp with auto iso in M.

-no iso limit like in photo modes.

-AE lock button works crippled.

-full auto uses very high shutter speeds.

-no shutter speed limit.

-all special features like long shutter speeds or slow motion works only after everything (AE+AF) is in manual.

-all Panasonic objectives has stepping aperture.

It cant be a lack of knowledge. Panasonic has limited exposure options in purpose. But why?

4K crop calculations:

Stills horizontal resolution - 4608
Cinema 4K horizontal resolution - 4096
4K horizontal resolution - 3840

This makes crop:

  • Cinema 4K - 1,125x
  • 4K - 1,2x

of course, it is additional crop (to 2x typical for m43), so you must multiple two if you need to know relative FF crop.

The Clear Retouch makes it is possible to erase unwanted objects or figures in an image by just tracing over them on monitor with a fingertip. They naturally disappear without destroying the image.

GH2 screen shuts off? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/4666/gh2-screen-shuts-off Fri, 21 Sep 2012 13:38:30 -0600 Jesh 4666@/talks/discussions I have been looking around on this site for a few months and Just purchased a GH2. I am learning how to use the camera and I noticed that when the lcd screen is flipped out, and my hand or something goes close to the back of the camera, it turns the screen off! it is so annoying! i think it is the sensor of the back of the camera thinking that the screen is closed. Is this a common issue? is there a setting in the menu to fix it?

GH2 Stills Problem http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15933/gh2-stills-problem Mon, 24 Oct 2016 13:00:10 -0600 jondshank 15933@/talks/discussions Recently I started taking stills with my gh2 in addition to using it for it's AMAZING video.

When I manually focus, whether through the LCD or LVF just before the image is in focus to my eye it looks soft and dreamy more so than out of focus, and beyond the subject it will start to actually look out of focus.

I took some when it actually looked IN FOCUS and I feel like it just doesn't look as sharp as my old Canon 60D (By quite a bit to be honest)

I'll post a picture so you can see. I shot this in manual, f/2.8 at 70mm on a tripod with around 160 shutter speed and 200ISO. I'll post a before and after grade.

Before: http://imgur.com/a/H3bPw

After: http://imgur.com/JjxF8ZD

Do you think this is an operator, lens, or camera problem?

Also please do critique my grade, I'm relatively new to all this.

PR

Panasonic announced the release of a much anticipated firmware update Ver.2.2 for the award winning LUMIX GH4. This new firmware enables two new features, most notably the ability to record anamorphic video content.

Anamorphic lenses are used to create a cinemascope aspect such as 2.39:1 or 2.35:1. Panasonic discovered that cinematographers had been experimenting with the 4K PHOTO mode 4:3 aspect ratio in the LUMIX GH4 and vintage anamorphic cine lenses to achieve the classic Hollywood look of anamorphic film capture. Unlike complex digital post processing needed to achieve the look, many of the background distortion and light flare effects that became so popular with anamorphic film capture can now be achieved optically in the LUMIX GH4.

Thanks in part to its Micro Four Thirds format and 4K recording ability, firmware Ver.2.2 for the LUMIX GH4 enables an Anamorphic (4:3) Mode capable of recording video in 3328 x 2496 pixel (equivalent to approx. 8.3-megapixel) resolution at a frame rate of either 23.98, 24, 25 or 29.97 fps. With an anamorphic lens such as 2x1 you can capture and un-squeeze a 3356x2496 image in post-production. In addition, 4:2:2 / 10 bit HDMI output is also available2.

A further enhancement of the new firmware is the addition of a very high shutter speed of 1/16,000 sec. when using its electronic shutter mode.

I can't find this in Panasonic's technical specifications anywhere. Does anyone know?

GH1 to use with GH2 in multicam projects http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15837/gh1-to-use-with-gh2-in-multicam-projects Mon, 03 Oct 2016 03:45:49 -0600 TimTomTum 15837@/talks/discussions Hey gang,

I am reading through the information about the GH1 not being reliable hacked etc. Is anyone still using the GH1? What hacks are the best and the most reliable? Would you recommend using the GH1 still? I want to shoot multicam projects in the next months and the GH1 would be great to buy 2-3 cause they are so cheap used.

Cheers, Tim

Which Setting is on Auto on GH3? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15184/which-setting-is-on-auto-on-gh3- Tue, 07 Jun 2016 08:55:29 -0600 IS2 15184@/talks/discussions Hi guys,

I've been having a nightmare on a few recent shoots with my GH3. I'm shooting in manual mode and yet when I pan the lighting sometimes completely changes, as if there's an auto setting kicking in to change the light. It's giving me loads of headaches in post, because a clip that is otherwise well-shot, is suddenly having its lighting completely drop in brightness for example, during a smooth movement.

I've tried to look for this mystery setting to no avail and was wondering if you could help me out with what to look for.

So far I have got: i.Resolution - off Metering mode - center Continuous AF - off

Shooting with MF

GH3 & HDMI stream : continuous signal after 5 minutes http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/6089/gh3-hdmi-stream-continuous-signal-after-5-minutes Mon, 11 Feb 2013 13:43:29 -0700 xniala 6089@/talks/discussions Hello, I'm setting up a particular workflow for recording an audio-video HD stream via HDMI on a computer via a capture card. I'm planning to buy a GH3, But someone on a french website warned me that when the LCD or the EVF shuts down, the stream stops. The only setting appears to be the LCD/EVF "wake" time : max 5 minutes. So after 5 minutes no more HDMI stream !

I need the camera to be on 6 or 7 hours per day, sending HDMI stream continuously (GH3 not recording : in pause mode). Someone could confirm the 5 min issue ? If it's true, could it be fixed via hack or something ?

PS, Vitaliy answered me earlier in this thread : http://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/5810/studio-setup-with-atem-television-studio-switcher-and-ghx/p1

but I'm wondering if someone with a GH3 could check this 5 minutes issue.

Thanks Al

Panasonic G6: overexposes 1 to 2 stops http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15813/panasonic-g6-overexposes-1-to-2-stops Wed, 28 Sep 2016 23:59:54 -0600 gameb 15813@/talks/discussions I am still using 2 good old G6 for a documentary project, but I have an issue (not new) with it. When I choose the exposure through the viewer and it looks fine to me, the result, after transfering to the computer, is an overexposure of 1 to 2 stops easily. Is there anyway to control what the viewer indicates me, so I can do the right exposure straight away? I am using only primelenses (Nokton 25mm, SLR 17.5, Takumar 85mm), so I have the ... "shoot without lens" button selected in G6 menu. Thanks for helping.

Mixing GH4 24P with 23.976 GH3 Footage http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15799/mixing-gh4-24p-with-23.976-gh3-footage Mon, 26 Sep 2016 15:54:32 -0600 IS2 15799@/talks/discussions I've just got my GH4 and have a shoot coming up this week and would love to use cinema 4K at true 24p. My B camera is a GH3 and I was just wondering if I could mix the GH4's true 24p with the GH3's 23.976fps footage without causing any sync issues etc?

Will that half a frame or so cause problems, what's the best workflow here?

Shot Matching GH3 to Cine D in GH4 http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15800/shot-matching-gh3-to-cine-d-in-gh4 Tue, 27 Sep 2016 03:29:39 -0600 IS2 15800@/talks/discussions I'm new to the GH4 and have a shoot tomorrow. I'm going to shoot in Cine D as people recommend, but I'm unsure which settings I should shoot with on the GH3 to try and match the two cameras.

Any idea?
