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.

i just wondered if it is possible to focus on the GH5 via USB-C? Either with a bought device or by building the controller by yourself. Since the Ronin S can do it i am quiet sure it should also be possible for others?

Thank you!

    Gh2 update with Hack http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/19949/gh2-update-with-hack Fri, 22 Jun 2018 11:38:37 -0600 Jessy 19949@/talks/discussions Hello everyone I would like to ask a question, I have a gh2 with flow motion V2 installed and a lens lumix 14/140. My gh2 with the 14/140 I bought it in 2012 and since then I have never done an update neither for the gh2 nor for my goal, so I think now I should make the updates, even if late seen the exit now of the GH5. but I'm still fond of my old gh2 for now. I would like to know how it is done and above all I can do the updates in the normal way as described on the web or being my gh2 with hack I have to use another method? thank you

    GH3 Multiple Exposure - An opportunity missed http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/5775/gh3-multiple-exposure-an-opportunity-missed Mon, 14 Jan 2013 06:40:11 -0700 andy4nothin 5775@/talks/discussions The multi exposure feature of the GH3 is causing me some grief at the moment. The manual suggests that you can take a RAW image on the card and use it as the starting point for a multiple exposure when using the 'overlay' setting, but I just get a 'Cannot merge using this photo' message. If you start a multi exp with overlay off and exit after the first shot, then this image can be used with the overlay setting, but will not write to the card at the end of the sequence, requiring the camera to be turned off and on again to clear.

    I thought this worked okay when I first tried it, but I've had no joy since. Anyone else experienced this problem?

    I don't actually want to create a multi exp, I simply want to use the overlay to align individual shots to create tracking movements of larger objects like buildings. This is where I think Panasonic missed an opportunity, with what would make a useful creative feature.

    If there was an onion skinning preview that just engaged an overlay with the previously taken shot, it would open up some really interesting opportunities.

    GH5 froze during recording, resulting in unreadable mdt file http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/16854/gh5-froze-during-recording-resulting-in-unreadable-mdt-file Thu, 04 May 2017 12:30:06 -0600 SuperTinyMagnet 16854@/talks/discussions Hey folks! I need help repairing a video file. The other day during a professional shoot, my new GH5 froze up when I hit the record button to stop recording at the end of a 23-minute (!!!) interview take. Even after flipping the power-off switch, the camera stayed on and frozen. I had to remove the battery pack. Now I have an unreadable/unfinished .mdt file that can't be read or played back. Has anyone run into this before?

    I'm also wondering how I can prevent this from happening again. I was shooting 4K 10-bit 23.976fps using a Lexar U3 150 mb/s SD card with 128GB of storage (I had used 122gb by the end of the take, and had a few gigs to spare.) I was also using a 3rd party battery by Newmowa, but it had plenty of charge remaining.

    Thanks for reading! Any leads at all would be hugely appreciated.

    Panasonic GH6, First rumors http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/19798/panasonic-gh6-first-rumors Mon, 28 May 2018 15:14:16 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 19798@/talks/discussions Rumors I heard so far from various sources:

    • Panasonic wants to add 8K support, most probably at 24p only
    • m43 sensor can be first present only at GH6 presentation time and will be exclusive for 1-2 years
    • 8K support can be interpolated (from around 6.5-7K), but can be true 8K, depends on sensor version Sony chooses
    • Next focus will be improving high frame rates
    • AF will be kept at same level, slightly faster, just with more options
    • Will use this EVF - https://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/19797/meet-first-gh6-part-1600x1200-resolution-oled-evf#Item_1
    • GH6 can be first camera with AI and cloud based features with monthly cost
    • Other features can be possible to be enabled permanently, but paid, similar to V-LOG license
    • Panasonic also wants to account for big currency fluctuations
    • So, price will rise compared to GH5, but it can be GH6V (value edition) with 8K and other features disabled that you can buy later
    • GH lineup, after one year of introduction, will be 3 cameras - GH6V, GH6 and GH6X (top one, similar to mix of G9 and GH5S)
    • First announcement round will be Photokina 2018 and spring Photokina 2019 or CP++ will be release time

    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
