New GH4 review by Akihabara. Philip Bloom prefers it over the Sony A7s.

Early bird sunrise [Lumix GH4 anamorphic 4K] from Martin Wallgren on Vimeo.

Martin Wallgren (video on top): “A short cinematic piece shot with a pre-production GH4 and vintage Sankor 16C 2X anamorphic adapter on OM 50/1.8 lens. Shot in 4K DCI and edited in a 1080p timeline in FCPX, I wanted to see how the 2X anamorphic held up in terms of sharpness with all the detail in the 4K footage. Really pleased with the results. Ungraded footage! Enjoy!

GH4 review at Akihabaranews:

“Panasonic has (arguably once again) done what no other camera manufacturer seems keen to do, and they’ve delivered an easy to use, madly capable true hybrid photography camera that can go toe to toe with specialist systems in both stills and video. On top of that, the GH4 delivers quality at a price point that makes the more traditional, expensive products that are associated with ‘professionals’ seem like a complete waste of money for all but the smallest minority who truly need that extra performance.”

Philip Bloom about the new Sony A7s:

It’s just a real shame there is no internal 4K recording…now that would be mind-blowing . That means the camera with a sensor half the size of this, the Panny GH4 stills has the edge on 4K recording over it due to it’s ability to record internally. With a Metabones speed booster (still no EF mount) you can make that sensor give you a field of view not far off S35/ APS-C.
