GH4 is fun to shoot. Here's a sample at ISO 800. Jpeg.



I was at the Bullock Texas State History Museum when I saw this exhibit and made an image. I used the GH4 along with the 12-35mm f2.8 lens. The image was shot with the lens wide open. The bottom image is crop of the top image. I was looking for noise. I was unsuccessful.

The camera is charming to shoot with both a voluptuous EVF and a no nonsense shutter sound. I like it all.

Why do you feel that they should let you in for free?

Have you tried the camera at the "Kid's Party" ISO settings (3200, etc…)?

I love the MFT cameras, and that seems to be their only weakness. (If even that.)

i never leave home without it! i pulled the trigger on the GH4 last friday and am expecting to take delivery tomorrow. I intend on putting the camera through its (video) paces on an upcoming lighthouse tour on bald head island in north carolina this friday. are you using sd cards to record your video on the GH4 and if so which ones? one other thing. has your GH3 ever locked up on you? mine did yesterday while shooting video and stills in the national harbor which is a short ride from our house here on andrews air force base in maryland. main thrust of video capture was to test a new (to me) wireless mic system. the old sennheiser g2 system. i scored two receivers with matching transmitters, 3 lavs and cables for 600 beans on craigslist. anyway, an image frozen on the lcd screen after turning the camera off. only way to clear it was to remove the battery. very strange behavior. unclear weather a camera or card issue.

I just received my gh4 ..... no time to practice with it I had to take pictures at a celebration in raw ..... ....

when I got home I could not see the photos ..... not work lightroom, raw camera or capture one ..........
know how I can develop the pictures now?

Pavo, the disk that came with the camera has a program on it called Silkypix. It is a raw processor for Gh4 raw files.

THANKS kirk.... I've done is to pass a tiff with that program and then retouch in lightroom 5.4
