Supposedly the video stream to the YAGH audio/video interface unit is sent via the mini-HDMI, which has a locking mechanism.

Re: Press Release: Panasonic Announces 4K Mirrorless DMC-GH4

The 4K output via the mini-hdmi has been mentioned earlier, I think. It will be one interesting options of the GH4 to use external recorders for both HD but also 4K - even with the mini-hdmi what is not great really but what is possible.

Re: Press Release: Panasonic Announces 4K Mirrorless DMC-GH4

Here is the best low light 4096 4K GH4 video I have seen yet, download the 1GB file and view on the biggest display you have. It looks fantastic on my 30" 2560x1600 monitor using VLC player on Windows 8.1.

Joe, yes, indeed it is very nice. Probably the sharpest GH4 example we've seen yet.

I just read an article where they are testing the camera and there is stated that the info on the screen first dims after a few seconds and then disappears like on the gh3, so nothing changed it appears. I just asked the shooter of that video I referred to earlier if there is a setting in camera to control this, so lets see what that other shooter has to say about it.

It looked absolutely amazing via my AppleTV at 1080p.

Except for workflow issues for myself, not being able to play it back and edit the footage smoothly on my aging computer and long(er) rendering times, this camera is incredibly compelling.

The debate for me is if and when Canon might offer 4K video recording in a future DSLR for the enthusiast and hobbyist at near this price point.

And if Canon doesn't respond, they will be left in the dust...as they should be if they don't give shooters 4K options.

The benefits of 4K are impossible to deny now that we've seen what cameras like the AX1, AX100 and GH4 can do.

Re: Press Release: Panasonic Announces 4K Mirrorless DMC-GH4

Hi

But they can't do anymore than low YouTube frame-rates currently.

4K needs to be 60fps, and these current models will be replaced with true UHD models just as soon as new silicon comes off the production lines.

Caveat emptor, these are not UHD camcorders, they are 4K capturing a fast moving slide show, not all footage will suit them. Most consumers used to video frame-rates are going to be disappointed.

Regards

Phil

FDR-AX1 is true QFHD, 60P at 150Mbps. Of course it can also shoot 30P at 60Mbps or 100Mbps if you like the slow frame rates.

Re: Press Release: Panasonic Announces 4K Mirrorless DMC-GH4

The target audience that is buying these early 4K camcorders like the AX100 (and they are that despite the frame rate), are video enthusiasts and prosumers and contrary to what a postet said, they're delighted.

A test that was just conducted on anothet site showed the AX00 was more resolved and sharper than the BMC 4K camera. There was detail visible in these A/Bs on the AX100 that wasn't visible on the BM. The tester was shocked. He was also surprised that by softening detail on the 100, he could successfully grade and mix the two cameras. Now to be fair, he felt the BM was a 'stronger' camera, but it's also twice the price when you factor in a lens.

BTW, the tester is keeping the AX100 and using it for his persoonal use.

So, disappointed? Hardly! :)

Thanks Ron for the info.

I'm waiting for 4K at 60fps in a more consumer friendly format. It will happen in the next 12 months if not sooner, in the meantime I'll probably go for the GH4 and use the high bit-rate 1080P.

Regards

Re: Press Release: Panasonic Announces 4K Mirrorless DMC-GH4

In the sets where the AX100 was involved, it's clearly resolving more detail than the others. The big question to me is whether, in the case of the GH4, was it optimally set for maximum detail or a more dreamy like look?

On the subject of color, I wouldn't even begin to compare since the gradings were all over the place.
