GH2 and 430EX...Rear-curtain sync possible? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/10981/gh2-and-430ex...rear-curtain-sync-possible Mon, 04 Aug 2014 21:12:02 -0600 GH2_fan 10981@/talks/discussions As the title says, is it possible to even do the specific 'Rear-Curtain Sync' flash mode with the GH2 and a Canon 430EX flashgun?

All I can see in the menu is 'Slow-sync' flash mode and that's only available in Aperture Mode, and I do everything in Manual.

Am I missing something here? cause it is a really big shame that the GH2 is not able to do such flash mode :(

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!

Leica MP topic http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/11110/leica-mp-topic Sun, 24 Aug 2014 07:07:23 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 11110@/talks/discussions image

PR

Leica Camera AG, Wetzlar, presents a new model in the Leica rangefinder camera range. With the Leica M-P photographers can be ready to shoot anytime, so that the “decisive moment” is never missed. Thanks to the large buffer size of 2 GB it is now possible to shoot up to 24 images in full continuous speed of 3 frames per second, so the focus is on you and your photographs.

Based on the otherwise identical Leica M, the Leica M-P offers all the technical advantages of the Leica M-System and several additional features, such as the enlarged buffer memory. The ‘P’ in the name of this camera indicates the particularly discreet and enduring design concept with which the Leica M-P joins the line of Leica M-Cameras conceived especially to fulfil the needs of professional photographers.

The buffer memory capacity of the Leica M-P has been increased to 2 GB – twice the size of that of the Leica M. This guarantees that the Leica M-P is immediately ready to shoot in almost all situations. This is a particular advantage when shooting pictures in rapid succession, as the image data needs to be buffered directly after the shutter is released, before writing to the SD memory card. This means that users can now react to events with even greater spontaneity to capture the decisive moment in almost every photographic situation.

In terms of design, the Leica M-P is based on the typical characteristics of the Leica rangefinder system and focuses in particular on robustness and a long product lifespan. The use of an extremely scratch-resistant sapphire crystal cover for its LCD monitor is one example of this. This material is so hard that it can only be worked with special diamond cutting tools and is one of the world’s hardest materials. In practical terms, the sapphire glass LCD cover is almost unbreakable and offers resistance to many kinds of wear and stresses, meaning that the camera is ideally equipped for many years of use. Thanks to an anti-reflective coating on both sides of the cover glass, image reviewing is now even better, even in difficult lighting conditions, and allows photographers to assess and check every subject with optimum precision both before and after exposure.

The unobtrusive and minimalistic look of the Leica M-P provides even greater discretion in decisive shooting situations. Many photographers who already use Leica M-Cameras actually tape over the red Leica logo to make their work as unobtrusive as possible. For precisely this reason, this identifying feature has been omitted from the new rangefinder camera. Instead, the top plate of the camera is engraved with a subtle Leica script.

Other new details of the camera include a frame selection lever with which bright-line frames for six different focal lengths can be projected into the viewfinder to simulate subject framing. The corresponding frames are shown in pairs for the focal lengths 28 and 90 mm, 35 and 135 mm or 50 and 75 mm. This avoids the need to change lenses to assess suitable subject framing, offers greater creative freedom and allows photographers to concentrate fully on composing their pictures.

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 with a blackmagic ATEM 1080p25or50, via HDMI to SDI converter http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/10735/gh4-with-a-blackmagic-atem-1080p25or50-via-hdmi-to-sdi-converter Sun, 06 Jul 2014 21:43:11 -0600 ricker 10735@/talks/discussions Hey guys,

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with using a GH4 through a blackmagic HDMI to SDI converter and then passed to a Blackmagic ATEM. I'm only looking to work in 1080p25 or 1080p50, but will need a 10bit signal as were shooting green screen and keying in the ATEM live. Basically creating a virtual set. I see there is discussion on the GH4 outputting 50p when shooting 25p, that is fine as long as the ATEM will see the signal. We are finishing with a live stream through a converter. Does it make a difference if the cameras is set in AVCHD or not on the HDMI output?

My interest in the GH4, is we can also take the multi cam setup on location shoots, recording directly into the cameras themselves. Where as a solution like the Blackmagic studio cameras require separate recorders. (the BMD studio cameras are not very sharp either)

GH3 Best Video Settings http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/7091/gh3-best-video-settings Tue, 28 May 2013 18:13:57 -0600 maddog15 7091@/talks/discussions Bought a GH3 just over a week ago. So far extremely happy with it on many levels. Have an interview job coming up so I did a multi cam test with my GH2 (Moon T5 loaded) and my new GH3 (Highest setting - MOV 1080p 24, @ 72Mb/s, All Intra). GH3 as camera A - front, GH2 as camera B - profile. When I synced the two vids in Premiere Pro for a multi cam edit... things were...different. Long and short of it.... the GH2 with Moon T5 kicked the GH3's butt hands down in low light.

In a nutshell the GH3 produced much more noise than I expected. And an overall lower quality image vs the GH2 under the same shooting conditions. (Both cameras shooting with the same f-stop, S-speed and ISO)

It was recommende3d by @robbin that I try the 50Mb/s IPB setting. I did so but still don't see much improvement or change in the noise with lower light. Was shooting at ISO 400 so I should be fairly safe right? Per many other professional shooters I have Sharpness at -5, Contrast -5, Saturation -2. Noise Reduction at 0 as -5 allows too much noise and +5 seems to muddy or soften the image as a whole to me.

Any feedback is welcome on best video settings for GH3

Panasonic GH4 - Manual control while video recoring http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/10886/panasonic-gh4-manual-control-while-video-recoring Fri, 25 Jul 2014 20:49:48 -0600 shaunlawson 10886@/talks/discussions Hello,

I have two GH2 that I love for video work. One major disadvantage of the GH2 is

when recording video start, I loss camera control, of ISO/Iris/Shutter. The only

control I have is focus.

Would any GH4 owner kindly advise me that the GH4 let them control the camera

fully when the camera is recording video.

Many thanks for your help, Shaun

GF2 LCD Preview useless ? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/10878/gf2-lcd-preview-useless- Thu, 24 Jul 2014 18:02:36 -0600 yabiss 10878@/talks/discussions hi :) I've recently bought a GF2 and the display always shows a perfectly exposed picture no matter what. I can change aperture, iso, shutter speed, it's always the same perfect image. No real feedback whatsoever. There must be a way to display the actual TRUE image no? I can do that in my beloved GH2 so i don't get it. anyone can help? tia

GH1 vs GH2 vs GH3 vs GH4. Better looking sensor. http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/5796/-gh1-vs-gh2-vs-gh3-vs-gh4.-better-looking-sensor. Wed, 16 Jan 2013 10:00:09 -0700 endotoxic 5796@/talks/discussions We have been discusing features, specs, footage and all that stuff since GH1 when out on 2009 on DVXuser forum. Time has passed really fast, and here we are with 3 cameras from the same lineup allready. Panasonic has made some grate inovation and pushed the frontier more than their competition on very much all the aspects of its camera.

Now that almost 4 years has pased, and we can happily review all GH series camera and drive some conclusion about their appeal.

*GH1 sensor has the best cinematic image from the 3 models. dynamic range, better color no stange color cast.

*GH2 sensor has the better resolution, and more detail, less dynamic range and green cast on footage.

*GH3 has even better resolution even more detail more dynamic range and a magenta cast.

For all of you forum GH partners, which is the best sensor from the 3 when talking about CINEMATIC image.

Remeber cinematic is almost WHAT YOU SHOW AND WAHT YOU DONT. If not take a look at hobbit mess at HFR 4k. So more detail and image quality is not always better.

THe best GH1 footage ive ever seen Grate DOF control and amazing cinematography (thank you @arnarfjodur )

One of the best GH2 result out there. Tipical Low Dynamic range, high contrast on flat image. Grate final picture (thank you @cekrem )

If you have grate footage from GH2 and GH3 please feel free to share for better comparison.

Long live GH series, and VK for hacking them.

GX7 / GM1 - Best Video Settings http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/10320/gx7-gm1-best-video-settings Tue, 06 May 2014 08:50:11 -0600 MarcioK 10320@/talks/discussions Since some people showed interest in the GX7's thread sbout opening a Best Video Settings new thread, there it is. And since (in theory) the GM1 have almost the same internals, maybe the settings could work for both - if we discover that it is not the case, a separate thread could be made.

Feel free to share the settings that you are using and the results - unfortunately I did not have enough time myself to make some research yet :)
