Wishes for the GH6 http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/17968/wishes-for-the-gh6 Thu, 12 Oct 2017 00:05:54 -0600 AKED 17968@/talks/discussions Everybody is working and talking about the 2.0 and now 2.1 firmware update for the GH5.

But for sure the Panasonic engeneers are alreday working on the GH6. For Panasonic claims and has prooven, that they listen to the customers, let us tell them early in the process of the development, what features we would like to see in the GH6, that can not be implemented in the GH5 through firmware update.

Let me start with a wish for a 2nd screen:

I think it is great to have the controls like waveform, histogram, sound etc. to have all the settings in sight, but as we all know, they take up a lot of space and cover up the video picture on the screen.

So my idea is, to have a second screen on the body where the screen normally rests. So that, when the normal, video screen, is flipped in, they face each other.

I would call it a "service screen", where you can have and see all the helping tools without covering the screen with the picture. All other settings like aputure, ss, ISO etc could also be shown and maybe one can also change the settings of the camera on that screeen. As you like. One should be able to assign, what you want to see on that screen.

I would make it a touch screen as well, so that the camera would have a double touch-screen, so the you can move things to the video screen if you need it, for example when you do overhead work and can not see the service screen but need the wave or sound controls. Once you are back in normal use, you can push them out of the way to the service screen again. If you do not need it, you could switch it off to save battery.

Nowadays, screens are so thin, that I doubt that it would make the camera bigger.

I think this would be a great help to have all the controls in sight, without them covering the main video screen.

Also, NO other Mirrorless or DSLR camera has that feature which would really give Panasonic another advantage over his competitors.

One could also think about transmitting the information of the service screen maybe via bluetooth to a mobile device, so one can have it in sight if a look on the camera is difficult or a 2nd person can have a look or even adjust the settings, while the camera man takes care of the framing.

What do you think about this? Would that make sense and help?

Possible Panasonic Production flaw in G7 cameras http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/18899/possible-panasonic-production-flaw-in-g7-cameras Wed, 31 Jan 2018 15:47:00 -0700 DrDave 18899@/talks/discussions I have quite a few G7 cameras. A few of these intermittently exhibit some strange behavior where if you press on the mode dial, or in several spots on the back of the camera (where the LCD stores) the mode and the screen jump around rapidly. Popping the back off (easy, but don't do it if you don't know what you are doing) reveals some interesting things. In one corner, and I think this is possibly the problem, there's some small wires that don't quite fit into the clip. They are very thin, so push them into the clip very carefully. Also, be very careful of the ribbon cables.
All of my cameras work perfectly now. After taking the back off, I gently flexed the circuit board towards the lens a few time, reseated the wires in the corner, made sure all the ribbons were in place and fully in their clips, and blew some compressed air into mode dial switch. Not sure which of these fixed the problem, but I suspect it is the wires because some of my cameras have some extra shielding there with a different clip and some do not.
If you do need to pop the back off, make sure to remove the screw in the battery bay and also make sure to remove four screws in the viewfinder. You need to slide off the rubber seal. Again, disassemble only if really needed at your own risk.
When you open the back, you can see that the whole back is a metal heat sink, with a small foam pad in the middle that sits on the hot chip. Inspect that foam as I think it dries out over time if you plan to keep the camera.
To test the (assembled) camera, lightly press the upper right corner of the back where the top of the LCD would go after flipping it out. Try it both in standby and record mode. If nothing happens, leave it be. If under warranty, I recommend factory service over trying to fix it. I suspect there's a design problem that affects some of the cameras.

Panasonic G9 issues topic http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/18876/panasonic-g9-issues-topic Sat, 27 Jan 2018 00:41:22 -0700 Eno 18876@/talks/discussions I bought the Panasonic G9, it's nice and all but like any other camera is has issues.

I started a topic where users can write their discovered problems in the hope that someone at Panasonic reads those forums and acknowledges them.

Below I will present what I found wrong on the G9 so far:

  • At higher ISO values I see more than several hot pixels in both Panasonic G9 cameras that I’ve bought. They don’t go away with the Pixel Refresh options (most of them are random). Please Panasonic implement a better way to mask them via a firmware update. It’s really annoying to have hot pixels in my images most of the time. It's hard to understand how important aspect was so easily overlooked!?
  • The auto ISO feature with minimum shutter speed option is not working properly. If for example I chose to set a minimum shutter speed of 1/100 seconds, I expect to get that setting no matter what! In the current implementation, the shutter goes below the limit I set after the camera reaches it's maximum ISO limit and considers it’s too dark. I what my camera to respect my wishes and never go below the minimum shutter speed I set when that setting is on!
  • It doesn't feature at all minimum shutter speed in video mode like the Gh3 and 4 had.
  • The video function flkr reduction can only be activated in still modes and not the video modes. :)) (should I laugh or be sad).
  • I can't set ISO 100 on the auto ISO option, why?
  • The joystick is a nice addition to the camera (in theory), but the way it operates makes it useless for moving the focus point! First, the speed is way too slow, second it only moves horizontally or vertically and we also need it to go in diagonals.
  • The AF (although very quick) in photo mode, in lower light values it hunts a lot and it's not that reliable (I had no problems with the GH4 in the same conditions).
  • Very annoying! In video mode I can't change from the main dial the focus type, continuous or single mode cause Panasonic decided to implement that feature on another menu (burred deep in the video menus) and that overwrites the back AF dial on the camera.
  • In RAW mode at ISO 200 (the so called base ISO in still mode), if the camera is underexposed a bit, the image has a huge magenta cast in the shadows (after exposure recovery). The problem only manifests itself at ISO 200, at ISO 100, 400 etc the camera works properly (I attached an example below). The big problem is that in auto ISO mode, in good light the camera most of the time will chose the minimum ISO 200 (where the problem is). If Panasonic can't correct this, at least they should give the option of ISO 100 in auto ISO mode, to avoid it (somehow).
  • The orange light that illuminates the top LCD fades away after a few seconds even if you are still changing settings that you want to see on the camera.

A small feature request: - Panasonic implemented Luminance levels of 16-255 and 0-235 but not the most useful 16-235 setting (it’s such a pity). Most players and TV's have Luminance values of 16-235 (the one that;s missing from the menu).

.................

Problems not necessarily related to the G9 but important nonetheless cause they affect the manual focus mode:

  • The current implementation of manual focus is close to useless way it is now (sorry but that’s the truth). I wish Panasonic would implement for their Lumix AF lenses, in manual focus mode a distance scale on the camera screen (basically what Fuji does)? There is a scale but without marked distance it's not very usefully. Panasonic AF lenses are grate in AF mode but are a really pain to focus manually. Can somebody at Panasonic please remove the annoying rotation speed sensitivity (or at least give an option to disable it if desire). Coming from manual focus lenses, it's very had to focus with those Lumix AF ones. So basically, I just really wish the option to have a constant reliable rotation of the focus ring (like how manual focus lenses behave) regardless of how fast or slow I turn it (in other words, I want only one speed when turning the focus by wire ring on the lenses). And an option to select the degree of the rotation (like 45, 90, 180 degrees of rotation). I understand the limitations of the continuous AF in video mode but please at least offer us a pleasant manual focus experience.

All above can be dressed in a firmware update if desired.

  • $1199.99 at https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-DMC-FZ2500-Digital-Camera-Megapixel/dp/B01LX7JSPJ/
  • 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.

GH5 Focus Transition things to come http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/16989/gh5-focus-transition-things-to-come Tue, 23 May 2017 05:34:09 -0600 alcomposer 16989@/talks/discussions With the addition of GH5 Focus transition, (a feature borrowed from the AG-DVX200) this has got me thinking:

  • Focus Transition really only works well for lenses that don't breath- or breath minimally.

  • Possibly Panasonic may realise that there is a market for Video Centric MFT lenses

  • Panasonic will have to come out with more Video Centric glass to really utilise this feature. Also ParFocal Zooms would be nice!

  • If Panasonic created a USB-C follow focus protocol (with accompanying hardware- or allowed other companies to make) it would make me much more interested in native Panasonic glass.

  • If Panasonic are 'not' interested in making more Video Centric MFT glass then why put this feature into the GH5 at all? I'm sure it was not simple to code this into the firmware of 'fly-by-wire' lenses.

Does IBIS avoid using a tripod? Is it stable enough with legacy lenses? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/18755/does-ibis-avoid-using-a-tripod-is-it-stable-enough-with-legacy-lenses Sat, 13 Jan 2018 12:57:22 -0700 apefos 18755@/talks/discussions I am wondering if I can avoid the use of tripods, and use IBIS with nikon and canon fd lenses, maybe with a rj focal reducer or a mitakon lens turbo ii.

It would be much faster workflow in the location, and avoid carrying big and heavy stuff.

People who use IBIS can describe your experience?

(I want the shoots most stable possible, just like a tripod)

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.

GH5 - HLG workflow & direct rendering HLG to HDR display ??? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/18383/gh5-hlg-workflow-direct-rendering-hlg-to-hdr-display- Sun, 03 Dec 2017 19:54:41 -0700 c3hammer 18383@/talks/discussions Been struggling to find a way to render unedited HLG clips on PC using MPC-HC from a GTX1050x to a Sony XBR43x800D via HDMI 2.0b. It plays back perfectly smooth, but in the flat recorded look. Trying to find a renderer and or shader that will expand the image to proper HDR on my monitor.

Secondarily, looking to see if Resolve 14 Studio, or Edius 9 is the better software for working with this type of HLG and HEVC 6k footage. I've been using Movie Studio 14 and Vegas Pro 14, but it won't work with anything larger than 4K and I need to move on.

Suggestions appreciated. A conversation on the nuances of this new world of HDR would be beneficial for all of us I suppose as well.

Cheers, Pete

GH2 stuck mechanical shutter http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/17122/gh2-stuck-mechanical-shutter Fri, 09 Jun 2017 16:42:08 -0600 luxis 17122@/talks/discussions Hi all, its been a while I have posted anything. After close to good 6 years my GH2 has its first major issue. The shutter got stuck in closed position taking a photo.

I got the "Please turn camera off and then on again" message. Doing so did not solve the issue. When i do this I hear a slight sound and can see the shutter trying to move slightly but remains like in the first photo.

In the second photo - I tried to manually open it and I saw that another part is stuck behind the outer blades.

My questions: is there a way to find out if its a hardware or software failure. Is it something that can be fixed DIY style or is the camera a paper clip? Does anybody has a official Panasonic Repair Guide/pdf by chance?

I have looked around for a replacement shutter unit (in case it is a hardware failure) and its not exactly easy finding one (comparing to canons and nikons or even gf2/3 which are abundant and cheap etc). Any suggestions and help will be greatly appreciated!
