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.

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.

GH4 how to keep the iso seperate in photo/video mode ? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/12462/gh4-how-to-keep-the-iso-seperate-in-photovideo-mode- Wed, 25 Feb 2015 09:59:38 -0700 hammyuk 12462@/talks/discussions does anyone know how to setup the camera so when you are in aperture mode and select 800 iso then switch the dial to manual video it keeps the iso value seperate ( like if i had the iso at 200 for my video work )

its annoying when you have to quickly switch from photo mode and want todo some video and realise after 5 minutes the iso is too high as it uses the last value it was at.

Best budget hacked G/GH/GF-series camera? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/12335/best-budget-hacked-gghgf-series-camera Sat, 07 Feb 2015 16:12:18 -0700 Skittles95 12335@/talks/discussions Hi, I'm on very tight budget with desire to buy two cameras, one more professional for me (video product reviews, artistic filmmaking) and one more compact for my little sister (learning to shoot good stills, some video also). We will use FD prime lenses with manual aperture rings on adapter.

I have about 280$ for my camera and 180$ for sisters camera. We're talking about cam bodies only.

There are so many good budget Panasonic cameras with hacks, that I'm confused. Used hacked GH1 seems the best option for me (am I right?), but I'm struggling with decision between hacked GF1 (manual video control, worse IQ) and hacked GF3 (auto video controls, but with manual lenses and better IQ) for my sis. Any suggestions that will help making decision?

Thanks in advance :)

GH3 Issues Topic http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/5488/gh3-issues-topic Sat, 15 Dec 2012 02:45:24 -0700 vaitor 5488@/talks/discussions Hi,

I just received my GH3 from Samys and my FN4 button does not work. I'm think it might be a rare case but since I live abroad and it took two weeks to get it from the US it is pretty annoying. I can still go back in the menu by using the touch screen but it is quit inconvenient.

My question: Did anyone ever came across such an issue with any other DSLR? Is it possible to repair it locally (cheap?) I am not a technician but I am guessing it is either the wiring or a lose contact. So I would like to avoid sending it back/or sending it in to Panasonic for repair. Also: If there is no other solution and I have to send it to panasonic, what are the usual repair times? any experience?

Any advise? Thanks in advance!

Is higher frame rate or faster shutter better for action? I seem to have maxed out my camera at 1600 ISO as the detail becomes obscure above that. I shoot unattended in a poorly lit Bowling Alley for 1-3 hours at a time. My 12-35 is set for f/2.8 I've tried 4k but usually go for 1080P60 at 120s with better results. Would shooting 4k 30P with a 120s shutter work better yet?

Help! My GH3 won't turn on anymore... http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/12353/help-my-gh3-wont-turn-on-anymore... Tue, 10 Feb 2015 05:10:50 -0700 Stab 12353@/talks/discussions Hi guys,

My GH3 won't turn on anymore. I have 3 batteries and I've used all of them. When I press the on/off switch nothing happens. No light comes on, just 'dead'. I've also tried removing the lens and SD card but makes no difference.

I bought i a little over 2 years ago so I guess waranty is out of the question.

Any thoughts, solutions that I could try myself? And an important bonus question: Could this have been caused by inserting a cheaper off-brand (OTB) battery? This never happened before and it seems to have happened after I first inserted a replacement battery. It has the same 'name' (DMW-BLF19E) as the original batteries but uses 7.4v instead of 7.2v and 11.84Wh instead of 14Wh...

Could that have fried the insides of the camera? Otherwise it would have just happened out of nowhere...

Thanks!

GH4 EVF white screen fault http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/12305/gh4-evf-white-screen-fault Tue, 03 Feb 2015 03:48:05 -0700 dial 12305@/talks/discussions I was shooting around the house for fun when suddenly the GH4's EVF went white. The flip out screen is still fine.

I turned it off, removed the battery, waited, etc, still the same issue. It kind of looks like a ribbon cable is loose as there are still some very faint gray outlines on the screen showing detail. I have attached a photo but it's hard to see what it actually looks like.

Has anyone else heard of or seen this issue? Perhaps it's just a one off fault, either way I'll contact Panasonic in the morning and see what they say.

GH4 - Best Video Settings http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/10255/gh4-best-video-settings Fri, 25 Apr 2014 20:17:13 -0600 maddog15 10255@/talks/discussions Hello all. Anxiously awaiting my GH4, I'm starting the same thread topic that I did with the GH3. At 32 pages of input and tests for the GH3's Best Video Settings, I thought it would be a good idea to do the same for the GH4. Dedicated to user input and results regarding video settings alone. Please share and post your video tests, comparisons and opinions.

I look forward to sharing and learning from you all.

GH4 Noise http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/12254/gh4-noise Tue, 27 Jan 2015 18:32:18 -0700 acvschwartz 12254@/talks/discussions Hello, first time posting here, and overall camera noob... I picked up the GH4 to do some promo vids for a clothing line I am releasing soon.. and tested it out all day today... I found the videos to be a little grainy and a little noisy.. I have uploaded 2 videos to youtube linked below. The one titled "madden" was shot in cinema 4k, 24p and was uploaded to youtube from final cut pro x using 1080p. the other video titled "gh4 noise test" was shot using FHD, 24p and was also uploaded through FCPX using 1080p.

I dont know if its just me... but I see a lot of noise and not such great quality especially on the C4K madden video which is weird. All shots are straight from the camera.. no color grading.. I know the editing and shots arent so great... but i just wanted to upload these to get your opinion... I purchased my gh4 off ebay through what seems to be a camera shop's account and they were running a promotion on the GH4 for $1,399.99 and I am using a Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5 - 5.6 lens. Please let me know what you think... is it fine and im just overreacting? should I try to return the camera to get a new one?

Japanese GX7 import is ntsc? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/12261/japanese-gx7-import-is-ntsc Wed, 28 Jan 2015 05:49:07 -0700 Matt 12261@/talks/discussions I have an option of buying a GX7 that's been imported from Japan (though apparently it's all in English). Does this mean that the camera is essentially NTSC, offering 30p and 60p recording, rather than just 25p and 50p of the EU version? Thanks.
