GH3 test: Shooting people (and more videos)


Panasonic GH3 Review 6 – People – ‘C’ Graded for Vimeo from Nick Driftwood on Vimeo.

Nick Driftwood posted the sixth part of his ongoing GH3 review. This time he shows you the different ways of shooting people. By the way, there is a long list of work shared and discussed at Personal View (Click here). It’s a never ending discussion about the GH3 possibilities.

Ryan sent me this message: “I created a slow motion test using the GH3 yesterday at a Philadelphia Skate Park called Hazzard Park. It was filmed using the ALL-Intra 72mbps format, which records in 720p. When I began to edit the footage, I thought it was 1080 at first. The 720p image from the GH3, in my opinion, is as sharp as a 5D Mark III in 1080p.″. There is also a new GH3 vs GH2 ISO comparison by Excuse Cie on vimeo.

  • Please, @Admin, really thanks for your evening posts, but better sleep as much as you can – you won’t have the chance after you’ll get your child born… (BTW congrats)

      • I’d be in your place. We keep struggling to have a baby but no results yet… :(

        • admin

          Wish yo all the best. We alo had to wait a year…

        Every child is different. The first month is usually a 2-3 hours short sleep resilience test. I was lucky and both of my children were doing 7-8 hours straight at around six weeks… :)
        Best of luck.

        • admin

          7-8 hours??? You were lucky!!!

    Video is looking exquisite. Unfortunately we’ve been advised here in the land of Oz by Panasonic that our GH3’s wont be available until Feb or March at the earliest.

    • Tony

      GH3 ships in January in OZ.

      • Franky S

        According to last month’s press release: January. According the Panasonic Australia as of today: Feb / March.

    I don’t think I would use any of these settings. I’d rather get my “looks” in post.

    What a relaxed, friendly looking smile that blonde woman! Was the video shot in Switzerland? :-)

  • stravinsky

    Congrats on the baby. My daughter is almost four and she never took naps and hates going to bed, even though she likes story time. But she sure loves to take pictures and play with my cameras!

    What’s nice about the videos without the music tracks is you can hear just how much better the microphones are on the GH3.

  • peevee

    Please don’t shoot people.

    You may photograph them with their consent though.

  • Dyggeren

    Actually – here in Denmark it is legal to film and photograph in public places. Journalists would not able to work if not.

    And even though th mic is better on the GH3, you ALWAYS put on a external mic, if your shooting video :-) Therefore The quality of the internal mic is inrelevant.

  • The Panasonic DMW-MS2 shotgun microphone is primed for the GH3 – listen to it raw with the GH3 here:
