David:I recently got my GH4 at Samys while I was in NYC, which was a great deal, and I only knew about them because of 43rumors.com. I send you this message because I need some help from the 43 community. I shot a wedding recently, something I hadn’t done before, and it was nominated for the Brazilian Wedding Awards. http://www.weddingawards.com.br/votacao/foto-video/trailer_do_casamento/david_arthur_barkan/8716/

Ouria:I shot this in Jerusalem with a GH4 set to 4K, what looks like camera movment was made in Premire Pro CC.
Time lapse was made with GX7 from my window: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VN_nxGRhLFI

Ivan:Walk in Japan on Youtube

Colby:  I just wanted to share this video I shot on the GH4 this winter in NYC, entirely at 60fps.  I shot everything in Full HD 200Mbps 60p mode and conformed in post, as opposed to using in camera VFR.  Downside was no ability to playback in slow motion internally, but the upside is less compression and footage that grades very well: www.vimeo.com/118384332

Joe: “Just wanted to share a collection of snowy images from this past month in upstate NY, all taken with the Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro lens.
