Panasonic doubles the camera production: Produces now 5,000 GH4 per month.

Good news for Panasonic. The demand of the latest GH4 MFT camera is much higher than they expected. The Japanese site Nikkan reports that Panasonic is now producing double as cameras as planned thanks to increased production in their Chinese fab in Xiamen. They can now make 5,000 GH4 per month.

Digitalversus: “If we had a sixth star in our rating system, the GH4 would get it.”


Panasonic Lumix GH4: All About the Gear

The positive feedback from reviewers continues with the latest Digitalversus statement:

If we had a sixth star in our rating system, the GH4 would get it. More than a simple technological showpiece, it’s a formidable, relentless tool that could serve any photographer or videographer with a sort of savage efficacy that appears to know no bounds. If the GH3 ever left any room for doubt, the GH4 does not: there’s no serious competition in the SLR and hybrid worlds, especially when it comes to video. To find any better, you’re looking at a five-digit budget. The GH4′s only real shortcoming? Perhaps a lack of soul…

The Japanese Camera.Itmedia site posted an interview with Olympus manager and confessed at the end of it that new PEN and OMD cameras are likely going to be announced soon. And we already knew that anyway don’t you? :)

a little bit of everything…

PanaLeica 15mm review @ CameraStuffReview
Comparison between the OM-D E-M1 and the X-T1, its main competitor (Bestmirrorlesscamerareviews).
Shooting Experience: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 (Dpreview).
New promotion on all Lumix cameras at Panasonic Australia.

Pier-Yves:tested the Lumix Panasonic Leica Lens 15mm f/1.7 with the DMC-GH4.
• DMC-GH4 + Panasonic Leica 15mm f/1.7 VS Olympus 17mm f/1.8 > https://vimeo.com/99292489
• DMC-GH4 + Panasonic Leica 15mm f/1.7 > https://vimeo.com/99273041
I chose to film in 1080p for comparison with my previous DMC-GH3.

Kai:Just wanted to share a video I just created in Chicago, IL for Modern Luxury / CS Magazine, a fashion/travel/nightlife oriented large publication in the US.
This video was made using the Panasonic GH4 (bought via the great Vitaliy’s website personal-view.com), G6 and GH2 using all kinds of gears (steadicam merlin, manfrotto steadimodo, tripods & slider) & lenses over a period of a 6-day fashion photo/video shoot in the end of spring, to highlight some of the nightlife hotels/lounges in Chicago. Lenses used were Canon FD 50mm F1.4 (with and without RJ Lens Turbo), SLR Magic 25mm F0.95, Olympus 9-18mm, Panasonic 12-35mm F2.8, 20mm F1.7, 14 -140mm among others. Some footage was shoot at 4K on the GH4, some others at 1080p60/96/24 fps on GH4 or G6 or GH2 (with hack).
Feel free to spot which camera was used for which sequence ;-).

I’ve won quite a few awards using the Panasonic G/GH cameras in the past few years… such as PDN (Photo District News) Photo Annual in 2012, American Aperture Awards in 2013, and PDN Top Knots in 2012 & 2013. This goes to say that one doesn’t need to shoot with Canon cameras to be a professional these days.
