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.

Buy GH4 or wait..for what? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/11872/buy-gh4-or-wait..for-what Sun, 30 Nov 2014 04:37:16 -0700 belfryman 11872@/talks/discussions In the UK there's double cashback today on the GH4, £200 back, but not tomorrow, so feeling a bit of pressure to buy a GH4 today, buuuuut wonder if there's anything to hold out for that's coming round the bend in the same price range as GH4 but maybe something new and wonderful about it - I prefer the look of my BMPCC to GH3 and FZ1000, much richer to my eyes. Anyone know anything that I should save my exhausted credit card for instead!?

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.

GH3 (GH4 too?) OEM eyecup http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/9679/gh3-gh4-too-oem-eyecup Thu, 20 Feb 2014 22:19:24 -0700 debuys 9679@/talks/discussions I lost my GH3's EVF eyecup. I modified an aftermarket Hoodman Nikon D300 eyecup to fit and it's great but it obstructs the LCD's movement and extends above the hotshoe. I wanted to replace the original eyecup and had a hell of a time finding even just the part number on the web. I called Panasonic's warranty number and learned that the eyecup falling off would be covered under warranty. I was told to pack the camera up and send it in to a repair center where they would replace the eyecup. My only expense would be shipping it to them. I started a claim and got a case number but I asked to be transferred to the parts department. I wanted to see if I could find the part and compare the cost of shipping in my camera to buying a tiny part.

Panasonic USA's tech support, repair and parts department didn't have a diagram or an obvious part name to help me order the right part. I was patient and eventually I was put in contact with a manager who had worked in multiple departments and was familiar with the "DMC-GH3". She found the part number and took the order over the phone. It arrived in about 5 business days.

Since it was such an an unusual, inexplicably time consuming affair I thought I should share the information.

The part number is VYK6B43

The Panasonic USA parts telephone number is 1-800-833-9626. Other regions have a different number. It can also order via internet.

My cost including shipping was $16.75 US

GH4 Firmware 2.2 V-log, Anamorphic, 10bit HDMI http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/12795/gh4-firmware-2.2-v-log-anamorphic-10bit-hdmi Mon, 13 Apr 2015 11:37:41 -0600 shian 12795@/talks/discussions End of April 2015. Conflicting reports on V-log, but true Anamorphic mode

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.

Speculating on the GH5 http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/13179/speculating-on-the-gh5 Tue, 16 Jun 2015 07:59:40 -0600 RRRoger 13179@/talks/discussions 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?

I am having a peculiar issue with the camera. When i scroll down to the PLAYBACK option and then use the right ARROW key to enter the PLAYBACK menu's many options the screen goes black for a second (similar to the black screen delay which happens when we go from the MENU to the LIVE DISPLAY mode which is normal). Also if i go from the Live Display mode to the MENU by clicking the center button and if i had exit the MENU screen last from the PLAYBACK menu then again the slight delay black screen thing will happen if i toggle to the PLAYBACK menu's options. This does not happen when i scroll to the other Options in the menus like SETUP, MOTION PICTURE, CUSTOM etc. or if i enter MENU screen from Live Display mode in these options or Vice Versa. I also updated my firmware to 2.2 but it did not help. And NO, i am not accidentally placing my hand in front of the EVF of the camera which is causing the black out.

Is it some issue with the camera or is there some option in the menu that can fix this? Thanks

GH2 Smudge in EVF. http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/13338/gh2-smudge-in-evf.- Tue, 07 Jul 2015 07:31:38 -0600 Italianshox 13338@/talks/discussions I picked up my GH2 today, I have had it for about a week. When looking inside the EVF, I saw a brown smudge. It is quite small ( covers about 50 pixels). At first I thought it was just on the outside, so I cleaned the glass. but that did not fix anything. As you can see in the image, the smudge is located in bottom right.

There is also a weird parallax effect with the smudge. Ie if the angle of the eye is not perfectly perpendicular to the glass, 2 smudges appear, 1 infront of the other (that is why there appear to be 2 smudges in the photo) .

How do i get rid of this? Is it a common problem?

Thanks for all of your help.

Also, the AVCHD and MP4 options are greyed out in this mode and i only get the MP4(Lpcm) and MOV modes to select from. I am using fast cards so that is not an issue. I am in Movie Mode. Also, its the same story in MOV (No 4K or C4K option). Does someone know what is happening here?

GH2 Video Settings vs. D5200 Video Settings http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/11759/gh2-video-settings-vs.-d5200-video-settings Fri, 14 Nov 2014 07:24:47 -0700 stauffec 11759@/talks/discussions This is not intended to ask the question "which is better" or "this is better" - just an observation I've noticed to see if anyone has more ideas of what may be going on. I've been trying to shoot some comparison footage between my GH2 and D5200, both using the stock zoom lens. I'm shooting with shutter priority and shutter speed of 1/50. I did this because I think these were good base settings for 24p / Sanity video recording on my gh2. What I'm getting though on my GH2 is a tremendous amount of noise, even in well-lit indoor scenes - and in low-light (subway) it is almost unbearable. I tried similar settings on my d5200, and the difference is literally night and day. Now I know the d5200 has a toshiba sensor that handles low-light much better, but I feel like there must be something else I'm missing. I keep on trying to pick up my gh2 and shoot video on it, and I feel like in basically every scene the ISO is like off the charts. AFAIK, it also appears that it won't even tell me what ISO it is using, it juts says "auto". Any thoughts or ideas if I'm doing something wrong? Or does the GH2 really require that much additional light.

Is the GH4 a lot better than the GH3 in low light? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/13293/is-the-gh4-a-lot-better-than-the-gh3-in-low-light- Mon, 29 Jun 2015 11:22:51 -0600 ipcmlr 13293@/talks/discussions Just wanted to know, Is the GH4 a lot better than the GH3 in low light?

Was thinking of getting a gh3 but do not know how well it does at 1600 iso vs the GH4.

Any opinions?

Thanks

GH2 Screen Orientation? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/13281/gh2-screen-orientation Thu, 25 Jun 2015 11:53:52 -0600 Oedipax 13281@/talks/discussions Hey guys, I'm trying to figure out if there is a setting somewhere within the GH2 that switches the screen orientation to be reversed when flipping the LCD around to face towards the talent (same direction as the lens is pointing)?

I've got a camera from someone who shoots vlog-style video all the time and she thinks she bumped a button recently while focusing, making it so that now she sees an inverted image.

I've looked high and low through the camera menus, as well as searched extensively on Google, and I am stumped. Does anyone know if this is a capability the camera has?

Thanks!

LX 100 as an A Camera http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/13255/lx-100-as-an-a-camera Mon, 22 Jun 2015 09:35:17 -0600 kitano 13255@/talks/discussions It has been many months now since the release.

On paper it has the perfect specs. fast Leica lens, 4K video with 100Mbps bitrate to name a few.

The question in my mind is - Can it really be used as a A camera for broadcast quality documentary production? (I am not concerned about the audio)

Your views?

Thanks

DMC-G6 incorporates Focus Peaking function that shows the peak of focus in MF and AF+MF mode.

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.

Adjustable HDR mode While the Panasonic G5 had an in-camera HDR mode, there was only an On or Off setting with no scope to tone down the effect. The new Lumix G6 addresses this problem by offering a range of options from Low to High.

GH2 hack good for 60fps http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/13077/gh2-hack-good-for-60fps Fri, 29 May 2015 17:33:45 -0600 Enzo101 13077@/talks/discussions So, I previously had the flowmotion 2.02 hack and tried to shoot at 720p 60fps with a 64GB 80mb/s sd card, but the write speed wasnt fast enough and recording would stop after 5 seconds. Now I switched to the sanity X patch and my cameras keeps crashing everything time I try to shoot at 60fps 720p on the same card. Any suggestions on a good and stable hack for 60fps 720p ???
