GH2 issue: viewfinder is totally blue http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/12002/gh2-issue-viewfinder-is-totally-blue Sun, 21 Dec 2014 02:26:16 -0700 gameb 12002@/talks/discussions After coming back from my last shooting the electronic viewfinder of my GH2 suddenly is blue, there is no blacks anymore, especially when it goes to lowlight there is only blue. The Picture is still there. On the LCD screen everything looks fine and the recorded picture is perfect. Its just when you look through the viewfinder. Looks like daylight massively falls into an artificial light white balanced picture. Anybody experienced this issue before? Any hints? BTW, I use Cake and reinstalled the hack without success.

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.

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)

Panasonic GH4 Audio Levels http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/11277/panasonic-gh4-audio-levels Sun, 14 Sep 2014 07:45:55 -0600 cblok 11277@/talks/discussions Hi all,

I'm considering upgrading from a GH2, mainly due to the slightly better audio abilities of the GH4 (headphone jack, 3.5mm input). I shoot a tonne of interviews so it would come in handy. I've just got a few questions about the GH4 which I'm finding difficult to find answers on...

FYI: the audio devices I'll be using with the GH4 are the Rode Video Mic Pro or a Sennheiser wireless lapel mic (e3 kit).

  1. Is it possible to adjust audio levels via a function button or some kind of PHYSICAL button on the camera?
  2. If not, is the touch screen audio level adjustment actually useable during shooting or is it very fiddly?
  3. Assuming I buy a GH4 that doesn't have the buzzing issue, is the audio quality acceptable?
  4. Are there any random quirks to the audio of the GH4 I should know about?
  5. Does the GH4 have any issues like the GH2 where the audio levels change slightly once the 'record' button is pressed?
  6. How is the audio level meter? Is it accurate / helpful etc...?

I'd be keen to hear from anyone shooting and recording audio with the GH4 and get their feedback and opinions. It'd be great to ditch the Zoom H4n recorder that I use with the GH2.

Cheers!

I want to make a documentary, in connection to a research project. I'm in the possession of a GH-1 camera and would like to install the hack for this camera. Can anyone direct me to a good tutorial for the hack and settings. My technical skills are unfortunately very limited. I would like a tutorial with instructions for the hack and settings, to make my camera ready to go with an optimal setup for filming.

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.

Record audio direct to gh2 / gh4? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/11680/record-audio-direct-to-gh2-gh4 Fri, 31 Oct 2014 02:44:17 -0600 AlanEHoward 11680@/talks/discussions Hi, I've been filming a few conferences recently on my GH2 and they've requested fast turnarounds, which means synching in post is an extra process I could do without ...

GH4 for theatrical feature films? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/11909/gh4-for-theatrical-feature-films Fri, 05 Dec 2014 22:34:21 -0700 DouglasHorn 11909@/talks/discussions It looks like the GH4 is a big step forward, but is it ready for theatrical feature films--even low budget, limited releases?

I know it's a big advance on the GH2--which I think is pretty amazing for $600 but which I still wouldn't use on a feature even after Upstream Color. But if it has advanced enough, there's a lot to like about the GH4--low cost for high quality crash cams, low weight for aerials and Movi-type work. 4K, etc.

It you were helming a 500K-1M feature that had a tight BTL production budget but also high expectations in footage quality, would the GH4 be your choice?

Comparing the Auto White Balance of the Panasonic GH4 and LX100: Dynamic Test http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/11932/comparing-the-auto-white-balance-of-the-panasonic-gh4-and-lx100-dynamic-test Tue, 09 Dec 2014 21:10:05 -0700 markr041 11932@/talks/discussions

Two clips for each camera. Both in auto white balance mode. First, going from 5600K (daylight) to 3500K (incandescent), then going from incandescent to daylight. The first camera for each sequence is the GH4.

You can see that the GH4 AWB never compensates fully under incandescent light. The LX100 nails it under both lighting conditions. The speed of adjustment is similar for the two cameras.

The GH4 uses the Lumix 12-35mm f2.8 lens. The LX100 lens is extended so that the f is 2.8. For both ev was set to -1/3.

Focus problem with my Panasonic 14-140 lens & Panasonic GH2 http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/11926/focus-problem-with-my-panasonic-14-140-lens-panasonic-gh2 Tue, 09 Dec 2014 11:50:30 -0700 ezgirl 11926@/talks/discussions I have been using my GH2 exclusively for video 2 yrs. Normally when I begin to shoot I move in as close as I can get with the lens zoomed as far as it will go, focus, and then zoom the lens as wide as it will go and then begin shooting. I never have to focus again. I can walk in or out and focus remains sharp, just as you would get from a cine lens. Something happened yesterday while filming, and I don't know what. After setting my focus if I move the focus is blurry, unless I maintain the exact distance at which it was focused. I have been through the menu and the manual, I can not figure out what has happened. LENS: normally set OIS - OFF. I tried ON, same result. CAMERA: FOCUS MODE set at AFS, but no difference if set at AFC. AUTO FOCUS MODE DIAL set at 1 area. Makes no difference where set anyhow. It seems to me this is purely a mechanical issue, either the lens is working properly or not, should not have anything to do with the camera settings. Any ideas???

GH4 as a picture camera http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/11591/gh4-as-a-picture-camera Sun, 19 Oct 2014 04:56:22 -0600 eurocameraman 11591@/talks/discussions The GH4 is the first camera from the GH line up ( I got them all) and even the first mirrorless model ( I got the EM-1 and still have the Nikon1) that I would consider to replace my Nikon D800 for my paid job.

GH3 was too weak on the vie

wfinder and its pictures were missing something (compare to EM-1 or D800) to be pleasing out of the camera or after post processing.

This Saturday, I took advantage of one class I was orginazing for my students in Shanghai (China) to do some shots with the GH4 I was doing high speed shoot workshop (Freezing water with Flash or High Shutter speed) and the GH4 did great.

It is the first camera I am using, for that type of topic, able to take so many jpg+Raw continuous fast shots without filling up its buffer too quickly. Much better than any of my students camera (Olympus EM1, Nikon D800 and D7100, Canon 700D and 70D...).

I used an Olympus 45mm f1.8 for that series of pictures (Manual focus)

From the GH4, I like the lasting Battery (5 times more duration than the on in the EM-1), the comfortable viewfinder (size, sharpness, shape), the peaking assitance for MF and the overall ergonomy of the camera. I sold my EM-1 as I couldn't cop with its weird menu, its poor battery life and one important missing feature: A physical switch to quickly change focus mode. I get it on the GH4 at the exact right position.

The EM-1 still produce more vivd and natural color, but I also like the signature of the GH4. Smoother, but great.

Only one things is still not good enough is the Dynamic Range (or Contrat ratio) of the viewfinder which is too contrasty; highlight are too easilly overexposed in high contrast situation, which is not visually accurate and comfortable to use.

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.

Panasonic G3 official topic http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/81/panasonic-g3-official-topic Thu, 12 May 2011 08:35:42 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 81@/talks/discussions

More details at - http://www.43rumors.com/continually-updated-panasonic-g3-announced/

To be short:

* Less buttons (you do not need AEL, right?).
* No eye sensor (You like play quest games enabling EVF via touch menu?)
* Noisier sensor compensated by math (read - more details blur).
* Intelligent resolution (read - more sharpness accentuating even minor flaws).
* And this magic button, ouch forget how it is called, something like Super-Druper-Auto-Everything-Intelligence-Not-From-This-Planet.
I think that it decides then you must take your pictures and prevents you to take any picture if it does not like this sour mugs ;-)
But I may misread something.

Overall, looks pretty cool for young girl.
Panasonic, why we don't see it in pink? Look at Pentax!

Buy GH4 or wait..for what? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/11872/buy-gh4-or-wait..for-what Sun, 30 Nov 2014 04:37:16 -0700 belfryman 11872@/talks/discussions In the UK there's double cashback today on the GH4, £200 back, but not tomorrow, so feeling a bit of pressure to buy a GH4 today, buuuuut wonder if there's anything to hold out for that's coming round the bend in the same price range as GH4 but maybe something new and wonderful about it - I prefer the look of my BMPCC to GH3 and FZ1000, much richer to my eyes. Anyone know anything that I should save my exhausted credit card for instead!?

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!

GH4 2-axis digital level is wrong http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/11860/gh4-2-axis-digital-level-is-wrong Thu, 27 Nov 2014 19:18:23 -0700 Steven 11860@/talks/discussions I got my new GH4 from B&H yesterday and the 2-axis digital level is incorrectly reporting the horizon level. If I set it on a table, it reports the horizon level as being somewhat off balance while the GH3's level is proper. I tried resetting everything and the problem, defect, or glitch still exists. I believe the firmware version is 1.1; if there's a newer one, I could try updating, but I have doubts it'll fix the problem. Has anyone experienced this problem? Any suggestions? It looks like I may have to send it back and exchange it for a replacement.
