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.

  1. Looking forward to the review.
    The silhouette reminded me of a problem I noticed with my GH2.
    When using Ex. Tele. Convert even at low ISO I noticed banding and block noise in the lighter shadows – around 0.4 volts on the waveform.
    It becomes really noticeable when exposing for the highlights like your silhouette. Hope the GH4 doesn’t have this problem.
    Have you had any problems with the audio buzzing problem when using 3rd party microphones? Panasonic USA have admitted the problem and offer a free fix.
    Very keen on your comments about 1080p 50p.
    I did a quick test the other day and found 50p to perform so much better than 25p. Any observations? Many thanks!

  2. You mentioned a Sony Eyecup in the past – but never posted a link to the ebay or even a part number?

    HDW : Correct but I can’t source it and seemingly Sony sell them for £60 which is outrageous.
