Small surprise: GH4 seems to focus slower in 4K recording mode (while it’s damn fast at 1080).

Share

Our friend Frederick compared the GH4 and GH4 AF performance and discovered an interesting drawback of the GH4 in 4K mode:

I have tested the autofocus performance of the GH4 with the GH3 during video recording. This demanding test shows that the GH4 indeed does improve upon the GH3 in 1080p mode. In 4K mode, though, the autofocus is rather poor.

I tested using both the 12-35mm and 35-100mm f/2.8 lenses.

It’s the first time I hear about that “drawback”. Hope other readers will test this too and confirm (or not confirm) the slower af in 4k mode!

The sensor technology trend (including Panasonic organic and color splitter tech).

Share

This is a post for tech freaks :)

The video on top explains the trend in CMOS development. If you don’t have time to watch the full video than just take a look to that screenshot. It shows the single tech trends which do include organic sensor and color splitter tech which are developed by Panasonic (in collaboration with Fuji):

I think it will not take much time until we see most of these tech inside Panasonic and Sony (for Olympus) sensors.
