Video Creation to Meet Pro Quality

The GH4's new Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine team up to reduce noise while raising resolution and improving colour reproduction. Innovative DFD technology increases the speed of Contrast AF. As the world's first* DSLM camera to record 4K videos, it truly meets the needs of professionals.

Video Creation to Meet Pro Quality

The new DMC-GH4 further evolves to meet professional quality and standard with the capability of 4K(Cinema 4K: 4096x2160 / 24 fps and QFHD 4K: 3840x2160 / up to 30 fps) video recording in MOV/MP4 or ultra high bitrate video recording at 200 Mbps (ALL-Intra) or 100 Mbps (IPB) without recording time limit. *1 *2 In addition, a variety of practical functions required for professional video recording are newly integrated. *1 Motion image can be recorded up to 29 min 59 sec depending on the recording format and the camera’s sales area. *2 Use SDXC/SDHC Memory Card compatible with UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) when using high bitrate video recording mode over 100 Mbps

Style Name: Body only
I had heard great reviews about this camera so I arranged a loan of one as I am looking to get rid of all my DSLR cameras which are too big and heavy. I need a camera for my work and this seemed to fir the bill. I need to take stills and add video as a back up. I didn't want to carry a big camera and the current camera I use fir work a Canon D70 is a great camera, its too heavy and bulky.

The Panasonic is small about 2/3rd of the size of my Canon and its light and fits well in your hand when shooting. The menus are easy to follow and after a short while I had set the camera up to what I needed. To be frank since I am not the only person to use the camera I do need auto ISO, and programme modes. This camera delivered well on those settings and whilst I did need to boost the brightness on occasion it did a better job then the Canon.

I have tried the camera with a Panasonic/Leica 25mm Macro lens I use on my Olympus. I was knocked out at the images, but to be frank that lens is the cream of the crop but focusing on the Panasonic was quick and crisp. I also used the manual focus and controls and was very happy with the results.

Now on to the video! This camera can use 4K video. Problem here is I do not have a 4K video TV or monitor and have no urge to get one. However, surprisingly what the video is great for is to take single images off the video you have streamed. This is useful where I need to look at an area I missed when taking stills. It shoots at 30 images a second and some of the images I would say were as good as the jpegs I got when shooting the stills. Nice feature.

I am still using the camera but at the moment I am edging towards buying one for the business and demoting the Canon as a back up.

Style Name: 14-140mm Lens
UPDATE: 23 May - DxO Optics Pro 9.5 upgrade now supports the GH4 RAW and JPG and does an excellent job converting the RAW files to DNG and TIFF

I took delivery of my GH4 with lens today and while I am generally impressed with the camera there is no support for the new RAW format apart from Panasonics own application. The latest versions of Photoshop, Lightroom, DxO Optics Pro, Photomatix and Perfect Photosuite 8.5 do not yet support this format. DxO will be releasing updates in June but I cannot find any information from the other manufacturers as to when their updates will be available.

This means that if you shoot in RAW the only way you can currently use your images is to use the Panasonic application to export the files as TIF or JPG which of course defeats the point of shooting in RAW.

Image quality is no better or worse that my GX7 and GM1. I took some test shots today and the TIF's output from the RAW files were slightly soft and had to be processed in Photoshop to boost contrast and sharpness. I think this is actually to do with the RAW to TIF conversion rather than the master image quality itself. However until updates are released it won't be possible to tell.

Camera build quality is excellent, controls are extremely comprehensive and well placed and the menu system is common to the GX7 and GM1 so users of these and other similar Panasonic cameras should be able to jump right in without the manual. The lens is OK, the OIS works but the sharpness of the lens is not as good as the Olympus 14mm - 150mm I have been using.

I will update this review once I can properly work with the RAW files produced.

I am selling my Canon 5D Mk III and L lenses as a result of buying this ! Why ? Well, I am not taking the same sort of photos I used to and concentrating on street photography and simple holiday stuff for fun. The GH4 with a 12-35 f2.8 (24-70 equivalent) weighs 860g. The 5D Mk III with a 24-70 f2.8 lens weighs 1.8kg !! The size difference between the cameras is significant and to be honest I am more likely to chuck the GH4 in a bag and carry it around London than the 5D. The 5D with the new 24-70 is a truly superb bit of kit, but I don't take it out due to weight and size.

In real world photography as opposed to pixel peeping the GH4 is as good. The lenses are as sharp but due to the sensor design the depth of field at f2.8 is not the same as a full frame sensor. The focus speed of the GH4 is brilliant and the viewfinder bright and no concern for me versus the 5D. The fact I can see exposure changes live is great.

I am very much used to Canon so still learning the set up of the GH4. I have a GX7 as well and the Panasonic menus are the same through the range so the 'change' is not too bad as I know roughly where to look for everything.

The video potential of the GH4 is well documented - 4K in a package like this at the price point is very good. I will have to practice. The wife is a professional photographer who is using a GH4 now and grabbing 8mp images from 4K video and the sharpness even when printed to A3 is such you would think the image was taken with a full frame camera.

Noise levels are OK but not as good as say a 5D. The thing I have found is that the GH4 images seem to respond better in Lightroom to noise reduction than I expected.

The build of the camera is solid but weighted just right.
