Press Release: Panasonic Announces 4K Mirrorless DMC-GH4

Quote:
The new DMC-GH4 further evolves to bridge the gap of consumer video camera and professional video camera. One of the most prominent advance is unlimited*14K video recording (Cinema 4K: 40962160 / 24 fps and QFHD 4K: 38402160 / up to 30 fps) in MOV/MP4*2. The DMC-GH4 is also capable of recording Full- HD video with ultra high bitrate at 200 Mbps (ALL-Intra) or 100 Mbps (IPB) without recording time limit.

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

Clarity looks immense.

Also love that XLR attachment. Beefs up the look of the camera as well.

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

That looks very nice indeed, the xlr attachment however looks huge in comparison with the camera so a rig would be in order to use that handheld, good thing I"m out of budget right now or else I"d have it on pre-order :)

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

Very impressed by the graded sample footage. For sure the quadcopter footage had to have been shot using the internal codec, and it actually looks very nice.

I may be tempted to get one with a 14-42mm F2.8. No mention of AVC-Ultra or P2 is good, since I'd much rather work with files than a P2 workflow on a Windows PC. (If I were on a Mac, it'd be slightly different, but single MOV/MP4 files I can actually work with.)

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

I would have expected that the body and layout of the buttons might be different but it looks like they just refurbished the gh3 body instead, from what I have read there is still a 30 minute limitation on pal models and no build in nd filters but for many other points it does improve on the gh3 (like having zebra's and focuspeaking, just to name a few) I"m glad all my existing m4/3 glass can be put to use when I would get the body only which should be around 2000 euro (without the xlr attachment) so that's not a major cost.

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

Anyone know where I can pre-order this? B&H only has it on shipping notification, no pre-order.

My only complaint is the XLR unit... since it's build for video, it could be more ergonomically friendly to videographers.

Funny, I had been wondering about a week ago how long it would take one of the big companies to realize how much money they were losing by not building an add on XLR solution and bundling it with their own cameras.

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

Well this is just incredibly attractive. Any notions of price-point(s) yet? I don't think I'd be surprised if the attachment is more expensive than the camera.

I'll post any pre-order info as soon as I get it from our affiliates (B&H, Amazon, Adorama etc.) Not seeing any pricing just yet.

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

Now we need a Active EF-MFT adaptor that supports IS. Too much invested in EF lenses...

EF to m4/3 Speedbooster would be the way to go, help counter the small sensor.

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

The GH3 gets slammed for hardcoding a 10 second timeout on the displays, no peaking and zebras while many lesser cameras leave the displays on and provide at least peaking.

I think that unless one is all slathered up in the IQ, the above design flubs plus some other ones make the camera (IMHO) an ergonomic joke. Glad to get rid of mine.

Panasonic has the AF100 in proper camcorder form factor to hold all the guts and extras but doesn't. As far as I'm concerned, putting all this stuff into a DSLR and add on box makes the GH4 impossible to hold thus requiring a cage. Thus continuing the joke. More stills camera designers at play.

Dang, the gh4 is prized at 1500 euro on a dutch resellers site, that's just a bit more then what I paid for the sony rx10, it's about 20% cheaper then a blackmagic 2,5k camera.
