Union Station, KC. The Man at the Piano in 4K from Pier-Yves Menkhoff Films on Vimeo.

Pier (video above):I only used the DMC-GX80 accompanied by 2 lenses : The Olympus 12mm F / 2.0 and the 45mm F / 1.8. No tripod except the mini Manfrotto Pixi. The editing was made with Final Cut Pro X. No image correction. It is voluntary. I really enjoy to use the DMC-GX80. However, I have one regret. I would have liked that the GX80 has the volume and the weight of the GM1. The GX80 is too close to the GH4. It is not enough discreet on places where it is forbidden to film. Specially in France which pretends to be a Country of Freedom. I never had problems in USA, Germany, Switzerland, Etc. Enjoy the Man at the Piano !!!”
