GH4 with Nauticam case survives 3 months under water and still works!



John NG reported at Goosiam that he found a GH4 camera wrapped in a Nauticam housing. The camera got spotted in a small hole at 18.5 meter under the water. John was quite surprised to find out that the housing resisted for more than three months under the sea and the GH4 camera was still working fine!

He contacted the Nauticam company and they got in contact with the camera owner by tracking back the serial number from the case.

Shows how well resistant those Nauticam cases are. Chapeau!

(FT3) Will Panasonic let you charge $100 for the GH4 V-Log Lite firmware upgrade?


A reliable source told me something our reader will not like very much:

You’ve been hearing that you can get an extra stop or 2 of dynamic range with the new V Log L color profile on the GH4. That may be true. However, my source says that they are holding back. The broadcast division of Panasonic is forcing them to dial it back. Apparently you would get 2 more stops of dynamic range out of the V Log if it weren’t a V Log L (lite). But the broadcast division is forcing the LUMIX divisions hand to tone down the V Log to a Lite version.
Also this source tells me that they will be charging $100 for the firmware update.

The source itself is not from Panasonic. Therefore I really hope that we he heard will NOT become true. Firmware updates should always come for free. And please Panasonic, never cripple down the potential of the GH4!

Thanks :)

P.S.: The GH4 firmware update without V-LOG Lite will be released on April 22.
