Categories: Miscellaneous 1 Comment


I decided to use the Commonwealth Games as an excuse to let me find out a lot more about the GH4s photographic capabilities…it did not disappoint.

The GH4 is in my opinion is as good if not better than a few Nikon and Canon cameras I could mention, its size and lack of weight with its petite lens system is a joy to use let alone the class 10 speed 3 SDXC cards allowing 12fps constant speed for at least 6 seconds beating cameras 2-3 times its price and weight.

Wi-Fi allows you to compose your recorded media on your smartphone giving you an instant upload to various social media networks.

I have intertwined some of the hard working professional cameramen (did not see any ladies I’m afraid) if you spot yourself send me an email to and I will email you a copy of your picture.
