Filming for the Panasonic GH4 User Review
Having spent a month on and off filming in Glasgow and Edinburgh the Panasonic GH4 User Review is now in the edit suite.
This was us yesterday down at the Clydeside filming inserts for the GH4 User Review. This is a timeline frame from Stuarts GH4 using the 7-14mm WA lens. If you double click on it you will get a 1920 x 1080 frame.
The weather could not be any better and lack of wind made the sound recording a lot easier.
Stuart had the CAMBO DSLR rig with the Panasonic DMW-MS2 short shotgun to make sound syncing a lot easier. We had the 7-14mm f4 OS Lumix lens on the GH4 with a wide angle matte box keeping the sun off the front element. The 7-14mm lens does not allow the use of any filters so a 4″x4″ ND filter would have been handy.
Scott had the 12-35mm f2.8 OS Lumix lens with a pre production GH4 Cambo loupe to keep the sun off the LCD. I must admit I was wrong to dismiss the use of an optical LCD loupe with the GH4 as it does make a tremendous difference in broad sunlight.
The main camera was mounted on a CAMBO DSLR rig using the CAMBO loupe and a Sony Radio mic receiver (UWP-D11). The mic that ships with the Sony radio mic is OK but I swapped it for a RODE Lapel subminiture microphone with a RODE MICON-8 Sony adapter.
When will the User Review be ready…as soon as I get time to edit the material… in-between paying clients !
