Re: GH4 is coming with 4K!

I can photoshop 4K onto a compact body as well and claim Sony's coming out with the SONY NEX-4K

I'll believe it when I hear/see more news about it.

Re: GH4 is coming with 4K!

Here is the source:
http://www.smallcamerabigpicture.com...live-coverage/

It's a camera review blog that is attending CES.

Nothing corroborating in the text so far, unfortunately, so use your own judgement when evaluating the reality of the product.

Re: GH4 is coming with 4K!

Confirmation from Engadget: Panasonic's next GH mirrorless camera will record 4K video, arrive late February for under $2,000

The claim is to ship in February, which would be aggressive. Price to be $2k (w/o lens, one presumes), also aggressive. This will certain eat up memory cards...

Re: GH4 is coming with 4K!

I want to believe the source, but the photos from Engadget seem suspect. For one, the 4K and SDXC labels look photoshopped, as evidenced by the gray box around each label. The GH3 doesn't have those. Also, every other aspect about the camera looks identical to the GH3. I can't imagine it would look the same.

Re: GH4 is coming with 4K!

I believe it, but the camera body is currently a GH3 body with those logos slapped on. It is under a glass box because it's a prototype. It's not even a pre-production model yet.

I like the prospect of UHS-III cards, and that would mean 256GB cards would be coming soon to support the extremely high bitrates.

Late February is a tight timeframe, so if they do stick with the GH3 body, but advance it to the GH4, it's actually kind of fine by me.

Re: GH4 is coming with 4K!

That's crazy ...

Looks like 2014 is the year they push 4K out to us aggressively.

I'll be resisting temptation to upgrade to 4K for atleast 3 years.

Yup. They would have had my attention if they had announced a GH with 14 stops of dynamic range in 1080p. Increased image quality in 1080p, then yes, I'm interested. Just more resolution? Yawn...

Last bit of corroboration from DPReview. Something is on display at the Panasonic booth. CES 2014: Panasonic Stand Report: Digital Photography Review

Re: GH4 is coming with 4K!

Just because it's a GH3 with a 4K badge on it doesn't mean it's not "real".

It's the same thing Canon did at the Cinema EOS rollout - they slapped a "Cinema EOS" badge on a !D X and put it in a glass case: http://www.filmanddigitaltimes.com/w...0_IMG_9310.jpg

The camera was in the product pipeline - but not quite ready for hands-on.

Re: GH4 is coming with 4K!

Dear Panasonic - time to shift to XQD memorycards please. Then you can do anything you want when you are not really limited to data speed on the memory card ,

Met with my Panasonic Rep today, they are expecting a mid march delivery on this camera.
