The last few months I’ve had the chance to use Panasonic’s new 4K camera, the GH4, and I have been really impressed with it. The camera is easy to use and lets you create amazing shots.
Here is my video review and examples of footage I shot. I also share some tips on best camera settings in your GH4.
I got my GH4 at B&H Photo Video. Besides the camera, they have a lot of great lenses and accessories worth taking look at. Here are all the lenses I used in the above video:
Here is a must-have lens. It works great on steadicams and 3-axis digital gimbals. It is so popular that it sometimes goes on back-order. If that happens, I would put an order in anyway.
Another great lens. If combined with the above lens, you will be covered for most shooting scenarios.
Here is a great set of prime lenses that produce that super shallow DOF.
Despite the MFT mount, I am still putting my Canon-mount lenses to a good use, thanks to this good and affordable lens mount adapter.
It’s always a good idea to have extra batteries. Here is a nice battery and charger combo.
This I like about the GH4:
-proper video camera functions
-great compression for video
-amazing battery life
-beautiful and cinematic video
-super easy to use slow motion
-amazing 4K recording directly to SD cards
-small but rugged and durable camera body
-built in timelapse function (even has stop motion option!)
-fully customizable buttons
-super sharp yet small m4/3 lenses
Here is how I setup the custom buttons on my GH4 camera
