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 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.

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?

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.

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!

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?

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

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.

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!

The new DMC-G5 features a 3-inch fold out screen and a top of the line 16-megapixel sensor powered by Panasonic's Venus Engine VII.

G5 is capable of things like full HD video recording and capturing images up to 12,800 ISO.

Also it looks like we have power zoom control near shutter :-)


Specifications:

  • 16Mp sensor (18.3 megapixels total!)
  • 6fps burst
  • 1.44Mp viewfinder
  • 1080p50/1080p60 video recording (28Mp)
  • Additional control lever. Control lever behind the shutter button which controls the power zoom on compatible lenses. Alternatively it can be configured to operate exposure compensation or aperture in M-mode.
  • Higher-resolution 920,000 dot rear LCD
  • Regains the eye-sensor to automatically switch between LCD and electronic viewfinder.
  • 'Touchpad AF'. It allows you to move the AF area across the frame with your finger on the LCD while you're framing the shot through the EVF.

Panasonic Cameras - Manual + AF-S when shooting video? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/12971/panasonic-cameras-manual-af-s-when-shooting-video Tue, 12 May 2015 10:33:34 -0600 sgreszcz 12971@/talks/discussions I have a GX7 and LX100 that I use for stills and video. I'm trying to set it up to allow me to readjust focus using auto-focus (AF-S) when shooting video. When I had my Olympus cameras, it was quite easy to reset the focus automatically when recording was ongoing, but after many tries, I cannot get this functionality working on my Panasonic cameras!

I have AF-S setup to work on the back AF/AE Lock as well as the shutter half-press. It works correctly with both cameras in AF and MF (manual switch) mode BEFORE starting recording, but as soon as I start recording, neither button will cause the camera to refocus.

Under Motion Picture Menu I have: AFS/AFF/AFC : AFS Continuous AF: On

Under Custom: AF/AE Lock : AF-ON Shutter AF : ON Half Press Release : OFF Quick AF : OFF Eye Sensor AF : OFF Focus/Release Priority : RELEASE AF+MF : ON MF Assist : BOTH Constant Preview : ON

Thanks for any help!

First multicam music video using 2 GH4's http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/12954/first-multicam-music-video-using-2-gh4s- Fri, 08 May 2015 17:29:47 -0600 tylerknight 12954@/talks/discussions I finally got the chance to shoot something that I wanted to for a friend who's brother passed away. He wrote this song in memory of that friend and we went out at 5am to start shooting and came out with this wonderful video.

Gear used: Panasonic GH4 x2 Panasonic 12-35mm Pentax SMC Takumar 50mm f1.4

All shot in 4k UHD and scaled to 1080 in post which allowed for a lot of post zoom/pans, and re-framing!

Let me know what you think>

GH4 Wifi problems, I need help http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/12927/gh4-wifi-problems-i-need-help- Mon, 04 May 2015 10:02:40 -0600 AKED 12927@/talks/discussions Hi,

I have the GH4 since well over a year. I tested the Wifi function when I got it and it worked quite well compared to the GH3. Now I had to film some squences on a crane and it would have been nice to use it, but it did not work any more. There were no previous connetions that I had before in the camera any more and when I tried to reconnect, the Panasonic Image App (Iphone 6) did not recognize the QR code and the GH4 did not provide any information (SSID and Password) for manual connection. It does not even provide a device name.

Any suggestions? Any help would be appreciated.

GH3 NTSC to PAL http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/6843/gh3-ntsc-to-pal Mon, 29 Apr 2013 15:34:41 -0600 nicneg 6843@/talks/discussions Hello everybody! My name is Nicu (Nikolay) and I'm new on this forum. Today I recieved my GH3 camera from US, and I realized that this is NTSC version, but I'm living in Moldova, and I need PAL mode. So, my question: Is it possible to modify the firmware (v 1.1) to change from NTSC mode to PAL? Thanks in advice!
