First GH4 vs GH3 high iso comparison. And 4K video available for download!

SLRlounge (Click here) is the first website posting a GH4 versus GH3 High ISO comparison:

Overall, there is a clear improvement in the GH4 low light, high ISO performance when it comes to shooting jpegs. So, based on my first impression, Panasonic took what’s great about the GH3, from the ergonomic to the video quality, and improved just about everything. The new sensor produces noticeably better image quality especially in low light, the EVF and LCD are vastly improved, and of course, the headliner is the 4K video output, which we will cover more in-depth in the near future.

Bestmirrorlesscamerareviews posted a short GH4 hands-on article which also includes original 4K video for download at Google Drive (Click here).





January shipment report: Huge DSLR shipment drop, Mirrorless doing worse in Japan.


Image courtesy: Personal View (Click here).

As usual Personal View (Click here) did a great job summarizing in graphs the Japanese camera shipment data (contains exact number of shipped cameras manufactured by Japanese companies). And there are two important news we can learn from the January report:

1) DSLR shipment dropped down to the lowest level since two years.

2) While mirrorless shipment to EU slightly increased (from 39,483 in December to 48,321 in January) and America where constant the shipment in Japan surprisingly dropped in Japan.

It’s really a challenging time for all companies producing system cameras! I am now wondering if sales will ever go up again…
