Final shots to add to the GH4 User Review…taking full advantage of the weather and this silhouette shot which could only be produced when the sun was behind a cloud.


Scott having a look through the Eclair viewfinder, sadly only a prop gleamed from my good pal Norrie, this was his pride and joy back in the 1980s. It’s a 16mm film camera used for many shorts and documentaries back in the 1970-80s.


The lens is an f2.8 Angenieux (French) 12-120 manual zoom (10x) obviously seen a lot of use but a Rolls Royce of a lens in its day.


This prop was for my outro talking about how things used to be filmed in the 80s.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

One thought on “Final filming for the Panasonic GH4 User Review

  1. If you’re looking for “the film look” the Eclair will give it to you even though 16mm struggles to get that shallow depth of field we all think of as “filmic”.
    One of my first jobs was to load the Eclair magazines for current affairs television programs.
    Looking forward to the GH4 review.
