  • I have the gh4 and em1 and was shocked to find the gh4 a more responsive, higher usability stills cam than the em1. This after doing most of my shooting with a pair of em5's and owning the gh2 and ...
  • Agree that the GH4 is a great stills camera. I have always prefered Oly m4/3 cams for stills. Had GH3 for video and EM1 for stills. Bought a GH4 and I just never use the EM1 anymore. I find the ...
  • All depends on context, how you shoot and how m4/3 fits in if you have multiple systems, etc. For me, I'm using these 5 lenses the most on m4/3 these days... PL 42.5/1.2 PL 15/1.7 PL 25/1.4 12-35/2.8 ...
  • I couldn't decide so I have both A7s and GH4. Both are just great cameras, different beasts... and if I had just one for video and stills and as a system camera it would be the GH4 without doubt. ...
  • I have the Hawk's v3 adapter and really like it. I'm sure the Voigtlander one is great also, but I decided to try the Hawk's first and like it. MFD is low on a lot of the RF glass, so I find a ...

    Great strap, I use with m4/3 and FF cams
  • I think it would helpful if you could clarify what you want in terms of a lens line up now and in the short to medium term. Not sure if you're trying to replicate your D700 lens kit, simplify and ...
  • Note that C-AF performance in 4K is worse than in 1080p mode - something to consider if you aren't comfortable with MF. I'm a video newbie but trying to migrate to using MF all the time - GH4's ...
  • I'd go wider. For a prime, the 12 or 15 would complement your 25. I'd go 12. But the 9-18 zoom would be interesting, at least for daylight shooting (slow aperture lens). But going longer could be ...
  • I'd bring EM1, 12-40, 40-150, RX100, RX1 RX1 is your low light kit - don't need the 17, 20 or 25 m4/3 primes. RX1/100 is a great travel kit. I have both cams. But I also have the EM1 and that is a ...

    Search for him to see amazing street photography with Olympus kit. I think he uses the 17/1.8 and 45/1.8.

  • Replied in Have both...
    I have both lenses and a GH4. I've only had the 42.5 for a few days. The 35-100/2.8 is a fantastic lens, but you're not going to blow out backgrounds at 42.5/2.8. You get a nice blur at f2.8 at ...
  • Replied in GH4 Video
    Are you seeing rolling shutter? It is worse in 4k.
  • I rarely use the 75/1.8 after getting the 35-100. The 75 is better but the 35-100 is great and background blur ok at 100/2.8. I will likely sell the 75 and get the PL 42.5 once it drops a few ...
  • The 4K video downsampled to 1080p is pretty amazing. Think of it as downsampling a 36mp still to 16mp and seeing huge improvements in noise, etc. Or having the flexibility to crop with abandon. ...
  • I had GH3 and EM-1. Used GH3 for video only, always used EM-1 for stills. Now I have a GH4 and I haven't shot with my EM-1 since for stills. The LCD and EVF are vastly improved over the GH3, and ...
  • Replied in Rent it!
    If you're thinking about buying an EM-1 but on the fence, and it is a photography-focused trip, I'd say rent it. What better environment to trial a camera if you'll have the time to fuss with it? ...
  • I've had GH2, GH3 and now have GH4 (also have GM1). The high ISO video performance is much better with the GH4. Seems obvious to me, and the reviews suggest that's common experience / finding. AF ...
  • Replied in Have both...
    I have both an EM-1 and GH4 (GH3 before that, and 2x EM-5 before the EM-1). The GH3 was used for video only, as I preferred the EM-1 in nearly all respects for stills. However, the GH4 is (to me) ...
