Giulio:A full week of free GH4 and Hybrid Photography training in Los Angles. http://www.smallcamerabigpicture.com/week-complete-gh4-hybrid-training-la/

Ryan:Hey guys, I shot a brief test with the GH4 and Defy G2 in the Bahamas on Sunday…I figured I’d share with you. I was going for a filmic look to contrast a lot of the footage I’ve seen so far from this camera: https://vimeo.com/95246522. Settings: Natural with contrast -5, saturation -2, sharpness -5 shadow/highlight curves adjusted based on available light I’m shooting a 3 min short in a state park with actors to test skin tones, cinematic shots & slow-mo. I’ll send that over when it’s done if you’re interested.

Alexandre:I’m a huge fan of your blog. I think I’m visiting it 5-10 times a day. Recently I received my GH4 and I had the opportunity to shoot a full day in some nice and natural places. It’s a short test on GH4 4K in few conditions using Nokton 25mm 0.95 lens, Noktor and Nikon lenses. I’m not a professionnal and I really hope to be able to test Lausanne in the city, during the evening or the night to have some nice low light tests. If you want or estimate it’s good enough to share it, it would be an honor and pleasure! Here is the link ; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHXuiTOtj1s. The video is still in processing for 35 minutes. I hope you’ll enjoy it. Have a nice day, and wish you all the best! Bonne continuation!

Panasonic GH4 review by Digitalrev.

The crazy guy named Kai reviewed the GH4 including also the shortest Still Image Quality test ever seen :)

Also Photofocus posted their GH4 review and writes:

The images are great. The interface is intuitive and quick and out of the way. The features are valuable, not bloating. The weight is half. The price is half. The cost of keeping heavy DSLRs will tell over time on your body and your hard drive. I think it’s really a winner

Panasonic GH4 review by CameraLabs. First YAGH interface on eBay US.

GH4 in Stock status in USA:
The only store that has them in Stock sells them for $2099 on eBay (Click here). And for the first time the YAGH interface is in Stock via eBay seller (Click here).
The GH4 will be back in Stock in late May at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Ritz Camera and Panasonic.

Meantime Gordon Laing posted the full GH4 review at CameraLabs and writes:

If you’re only judging the GH4 on stills, it’s clearly very good, but you can match or beat it with cheaper models. But if you’re interested in video, the Lumix GH4 is triumphant. Yes it’s noisy at high ISOs, but look at the price! 4k video with internal recording and 1080p at 96fps, squeezed into a compact camera that’s also respectable for stills – all for under $2000 USD? The GH4 is not just a bargain for video enthusiasts, it’s a game-changer.

Great review by Gordon!

Good and bad news: 0 shock dramatically improves the E-P5 image quality. But feature is not coming to the E-M5 :(

The test performed by Dpreview.

Our source (Thank You!) were right and the E-P5 now got the 0 shock feature via firmware update. The bad news is that the same source said there is no E-M5 firmware update coming any time soon. This means no 0 anti shock feature coming for E-M5 camera owners yet.

In the meantime Dpreview already tested the zero shock feature of the E-P5 and writes:

e haven’t done any real-world shooting with this yet, but our test shots suggest it’s very effective at reducing image shake at the ‘danger’ speeds. The blurring that’s visible in the first image below is reduced by enabling 0 sec anti-shock. The mode adds a very subtle delay to the shutter response, but one measured in miliseconds. We see no reason not to ensure ’0 Sec Anti-Shock’ is always applied – resolving the issue outlined in our original review.

Great news for all E-P5 owners!
