  • 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?

Best Old Lumix Hack cams with PAL / NTSC capability? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15687/best-old-lumix-hack-cams-with-pal-ntsc-capability Thu, 08 Sep 2016 14:56:26 -0600 talkingheadsdoc 15687@/talks/discussions Hello niche pros. =) I'm looking to purchase some old Lumix cameras because I have ton of MFT lenses. I'm only interested in creating interviews in multiple angles. Since I will be traveling back and forth I need it to be 25 and 30p.

So I need to be able to hack new firmwares so that I can surpass 30min as well.

Which Lumix models do you recommend? Nothing fancy, but the best option with pricing. I will purchase 3. Thanks buddies.

Samples and videos


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 DP shot in varied White Balances in V log External & i need to be able to get the accurate temperature data of the footage he shot on.

Also, i am using Filmconvert (GH4+VLOG) to grade. The WB parameter (in Film Convert) is an offset rather than a setting in my past experience. Would it then actually wreck my clip if i dialed the Film Convert WB parameter over to 3200K from it's default position on Daylight if the footage was shot on 3200K too?

I'm using 7" Lilliput on it, nothing changed, all of a sudden it just stopped working. First, the monitor just said "no signal" but after some tweaking on/off, it just started to stay black or blue as it was receiving a signal but didn't know what to do with it. An older flat TV says "signal not supported" and a brand new LG doesn't recognize anything. The GH2 clearly thinks it's connected to external monitor, as the on-board screen flickers when connecting, ExTele is disabled, etc., so everything seems normal at that end. Tried different cables and resetted the firmware.. What else to do or try?

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

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.

Marks on video clips http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15560/marks-on-video-clips Sun, 21 Aug 2016 09:05:22 -0600 curious2 15560@/talks/discussions Hello,

last month I noticed strange marks on my footage. I don't remember to see them before. I am quite sure that is not a camera problem, because I tried to record with two different Panasonic GH 2 cameras, one GH 1 camera and smal HD Panasonic camera. I also tried to change a graphic card and my SD cards, but didn't help. The marks are most visible on white walls in strong sun and on the blue sky. (You can see the marks on the video attached. This two video clips are exported from editing software. On clips I added brightness, contrast and sharpness so you can see better the marks. But the marks are visible also on raw footage)

I checked different topics on Personal view, but the only similar topic I found was Panasonic GH4 glitches/issue from Tjibbe. My problem is similar but it is not really the same.

Any suggestions?

Link to video clips (On the first clip look the marks on the white wall of the house. On the second clip look to the blue sky):

Timecode syncing multiple GH4 cameras http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/14353/timecode-syncing-multiple-gh4-cameras Sat, 02 Jan 2016 17:56:58 -0700 DouglasHorn 14353@/talks/discussions What is the best way to timecode sync multiple GH4 cameras? From reading the manuals and related threads there seem to be two approaches:

App Method: Use the Lumix Link app to set the timecode for each GH4 to the time on the mobile device and then use Time of Day timecode mode.

YAGH Method: Use a YAGH to jam true timecode to the GH4 from a master clock.

The App Method seems easiest and cheapest if it is accurate enough. Has anyone tried it yet with multiple GH4s?

If the App Method doesn't sync cameras with sufficient accuracy, do you need a YAGH for each camera, or can you attach the YAGH to a GH4 to jam timecode and, once that camera's clock is set, move the YAGH to the other cameras in turn to jam sync timecode. In other words, once the GH4's timecode is set via the YAGH, does the camera retain it when the YAGH is removed? This would let one YAGH serve multiple cameras for timecode jamming purposes.

Thanks!

Panasonic GH4 Audio Levels http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/11277/panasonic-gh4-audio-levels Sun, 14 Sep 2014 07:45:55 -0600 cblok 11277@/talks/discussions Hi all,

I'm considering upgrading from a GH2, mainly due to the slightly better audio abilities of the GH4 (headphone jack, 3.5mm input). I shoot a tonne of interviews so it would come in handy. I've just got a few questions about the GH4 which I'm finding difficult to find answers on...

FYI: the audio devices I'll be using with the GH4 are the Rode Video Mic Pro or a Sennheiser wireless lapel mic (e3 kit).

  1. Is it possible to adjust audio levels via a function button or some kind of PHYSICAL button on the camera?
  2. If not, is the touch screen audio level adjustment actually useable during shooting or is it very fiddly?
  3. Assuming I buy a GH4 that doesn't have the buzzing issue, is the audio quality acceptable?
  4. Are there any random quirks to the audio of the GH4 I should know about?
  5. Does the GH4 have any issues like the GH2 where the audio levels change slightly once the 'record' button is pressed?
  6. How is the audio level meter? Is it accurate / helpful etc...?

I'd be keen to hear from anyone shooting and recording audio with the GH4 and get their feedback and opinions. It'd be great to ditch the Zoom H4n recorder that I use with the GH2.

Cheers!

GX80/85 stops recording at variable times. http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15441/gx8085-stops-recording-at-variable-times. Fri, 29 Jul 2016 11:36:18 -0600 jessenash 15441@/talks/discussions I can't seem to find a clear answer on this one. Most people are reporting that they can shoot until their stock battery is completely drained about about an hour and a half. I tested this last week and it seemed to be the case for me as well. However I've rigged up a DC coupler and attached it to a much higher capacity battery expected to record longer and now the camera seems to stop around an hour (within 10 minutes of) before recording stops (camera remains powered on). I also am using a different memory card, could that be the problem (it's a fairly new high end sandisc card)? There's no problem with the video file, and the camera is warm to the touch but I don't think it's overheated. If it might be a card problem, is there a best way to format the card? I've just formatted via the camera.

Thanks in advance, any info is helpful.

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.

Combining gh4 Footage and Phantom Drone? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15396/combining-gh4-footage-and-phantom-drone- Wed, 20 Jul 2016 20:54:35 -0600 bluehabit 15396@/talks/discussions Does anyone here have experience using a GH4 and combining footage with a Phantom 3 Pro or 4? Need a drone and thinking about picking up the Phantom but I am not sure how well the footage will mesh with the GH4, specifically CineD footage.

If they do not complement each other I might consider picking up a cage for my GH4 and selecting another drone. Thanks
