GH4 gets already a price in Sweden and Norway (around 1499 Euro). First image samples online!

Share

Dealsrunner reports that the GH4 actually is already available for preorder in Holland (Click here), Norway (Click here) and Sweden (Click here). The price for the body is 1499 Euro and knowing I guess this means we can guess a price of around $1499-$1599 for US. Amazon US (Click here) reports that “we will begin accepting pre-orders on March 17, 2014“.

GH4 image samples:
You can see first images samples taken with the GH4 in Kenya (on Flickr) and Japan (on Flickr). Thanks Cody for finding them!
Naturalexposures just posted a GH4 presentation report from Tokyo.

GH4 preorders will start on March 17. Price still unknown.

Share

We will have to wait more than one month to know price and place our preorders on the new GH4. Amazon US (Click here) reports that “we will begin accepting pre-orders on March 17, 2014“.

Meantime the readers reaction the GH4 is very positive according to our POLL. I hope Panasonic will not change our mood after the final price announcement :)

Hot Notes:
1) Pricing will be announced in mid March only! (Camera will cost less than $2000 or 2000 Euro).
2) This is the world’s first mirrorless interchangeable lens mount camera recording 4K
3) The external XLR / HD-SDI add-on for this camera allows for uncompressed 10bit 4K output over 3G HD-SDI – the kind of spec Canon currently charges $25,000 fo (EosHD).
4) DFD (Depth-of-Defocus) autofocus works like this: During live view (before a half-press of the shutter button), the camera will occasionally make a tiny adjustment to focus, to check whether subjects in the frame are in front of or behind the current focus point. In addition to this information, the camera judges how far out-of-focus objects in the scene are, based on how blurred they are, assessed using a profile detailing the blur behavior of the lens at its current aperture. Although this combination of data itself doesn’t give the GH4 enough information to achieve precise focus, it does give it a clear idea of where it should start using conventional contrast detection AF process to achieve fine focus. (Dpreview).
5) Recording 4K will crop your image by an ulterior 1,125x (Cinema 4K) or 1,2x (Cinema) factor (Personal View).
6) The new sensor seems to be able to get more detail out of the highlights than the sensor in the Olympus EM1 (ThePhoBlographer).
