4K version of GH4 short film “Dalia’s Dream” by Scott Rhea by Panasonic Australia on Youtube.
Here is a nice introduction into the GH4 Ken Burns effect using Final Pro X (Outbackphoto).
Twills:Here is a video I shot at the Dominion Riverrock festival this past weekend. It was shot with the GH4 in 4K @ 30 FPS, 1080p @ 60 FPS, and 1080p @ 96 FPS. I hope you like action sports. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDAtxgHXM6A

Sol:One of the questions I get asked a lot is how to use Canon EF lenses on the Panasonic GH4, so I wrote a post with all the details: http://suggestionofmotion.com/blog/panasonic-gh4-lens-options-canon-ef/
Guillaume:I wanted to share my last video work with the Panasonic GH4, “The Sicilian March” https://vimeo.com/94922357. The slowmotion allowed me to capture the men expressions and emotions wearing heavy statues during the Easter procession “Misteri di Tapani”. I also wrote some articles about photos made during my travel, as well as the equipement I used for that kind of travel documentary work.

Technical note: Help on 43rumors fix needed.

Share

Dear readers. As you may have noticed lately sometimes 43rumors.com site doesn’t load and you see an error message like the one I posted on top (I have German language set on my laptop).

It’s now weeks I try to solve this but It doesn’t seem to be a server or design related issue. But probably has to do with DNS issues. Anyway, I kindly ask the readers with tech knowledge if they can help me to figure out what’s causing the issue. Please contact me at 43rumors@gmail.com if you have any clue. Thanks!!!

P.S.: Usually the site loads again after 1-2 minutes the problem appears.

(FT5) Guess why Olympus didn’t improve focus peaking on the E-P5.

Share

The trusted source who shared the E-P5 firmware update in advance just shared some more tidbits:

He says the Focus peaking update was going to happen but a decision was made to leave that to a future model rather than update this model. I guess this means Olympus wants the soon to be announced E-Pl7 to have this feature to mark a more clear distance between the new and older PEN models.

I would have prefered a more “Fuji alike” firmware approach. Full intensive support and improvement of all current cameras. It’s a great way to create affiliation don’t you think so Olympus?
