Tony Northrup: After your excellent article on equivalence, I'm surprised to see that you're still showing the 35mm equivalent focal length without applying the crop factor to the f/stop number. Obviously this tiny lens isn't equivalent to a 21mm f/2.8.
By all means, list the physical f/stop and focal length. If you apply the crop factor to the focal length, however, you should also give us the equivalent f/stop.
Here's a good explanation: http://www.dpreview.com/articles/2666934640/what-is-equivalence-and-why-should-i-care
21mm is Field of Viewf/2.8 is exposition. f/2.8 is always the same without relation to crop.
And that EVF eyecup is much more comfortable.
Ok, I finally got to CP+ and could touch GH4 myself.Info and level marks become dimmed after 30sec and totally disappear after another 30sec during video recording.EVF is really incredibly sharp and looks bigger than in GH3, moreover while display is 16:9, EVF is 4:3.Timelapse has special mode on the left dial(visible on photos) and in the end of shooting or in play mode all photos can be converted into video including 4KNow in WiFi you can not only start video recording, but stop it. Though they are still "deciding" about showing remote video during recording.Memory card bay lid is much harder to open.Hard to say about AF, but except more flexible zones it doesn't look noticeably faster. Cant say about following focus accuracy, as they don't allow to use your own memory card.Now you can adjust shadows and highlights for JPG.RAW converter is quite simple and allows to setup all usual settings as for JPG shooting (including new shadows and highlights)
Gearsau: That " thing " is just so ugly, with " The optional DMW-YAGH 'Interface Unit' .that only Panasonic could love it.
But that's for rig, not for holding
caver3d: In the first article the "GH4" is stamped on the front of the cam. In this article (photo at top), it is not. Maybe it's a stealth model. And why not? Pany threw the kitchen sink into this one. This is m43 with a vengeance!
The only visible difference between GH3 and GH4 are lock button on mode dial and additional contacts in the base of camera
StevenN: The GH4 really doesn't need a locking mode dial. The dial on my GH3 is firm enough and has never inadvertently shifted. Not sure I'd want to hold a button down to be able to turn a dial.
Isnt it switch? Press once to unlock, press again to lock?
Photato: I'd rather have 1080P in 10-bit 4:2:2 internal recording with a professional editing grade CODEC than consumer 4k.Also the sensor resolution has to be lower than 16MP, like the Canon's C300 et al. 10MP seems a good balance, more so for a 4/3" sensor.Would be nice too an internal ND filter, just like the real Pro video cameras have and even vanilla P&S !
Can someone please make such camera?
Do you mean can record 10 seconds?
retartedcanuck: USB 2.0? Really?
Does anybody really still use USB?
Daniel Lauring: IMHO, this is stretching the envelope of usefulness of tablets. It is "trying too hard" to fit a 10lb brick in a 5lb basket. For RAW editing anyone would be way better off with an Ultralight laptop (like Macbook Air) or Windows tablet (like Microsoft Surface.) Heck, you can buy last year's Surface Pro for $600 with an i5 processor and 128Gb SSD. Better still the Surface has true Wacom digitizer support.
Tablets have one advantage, they can be charged with light solar panel. For any ultralight laptop solar panel is much heavier. And still tablets are atleast 3 times lighter than any laptop
Why share and video quality are in chinese?
Wow, they made phase autofocus almost the same precise as CAF
Funny but my photos without any fancy filters are more popular than any with
Only 1080 60i and 720 only 60p? :( Not action camera replacement
nightshadow1: how about an analysis of Google's and G+ terms. They were caught reading private emails from user accounts, so how about an easy to understand terms of service for them?
It's impossible to make email service which is not reading your emails. It cannot filter spam, sort, search. Actually it will not be able even understand whose is that email without reading it
Tal Shachar: sx510 would be more impressive if it supported AA batteries and a hot shoe. A big camera like SX510 cold easily use 4 AA batteries instead of 1 battery for compact camera. And if you think that those tiny lithium ion batteries are better then AA batteries then here is the calculation that will prove that you are wrong. NB6L is 3.7v 1,000 mAh which is equivalent to one AA battery 1.2v 3,000 mAh so a camera that size with 4 AA batteries would give 4 times energy and much cheaper
But you still need 3 AA batteries to get needed voltage.
Rambalac: Neither good for photo, nor for video. Boring
For someone who is just getting started there better and cheaper cameras
Neither good for photo, nor for video. Boring
ohmydentist: I'd love to try this, but then there's no way I could sit in one spot for 20 hours to do this . . . .
You just set your intervalometer and come back hours later
