Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 on Metabones Speed Booster ( F1.2 ) with the GH4

QuoteQuote:
The Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 is super sharp on the Speed Booster in 4K with the GH4. This is my favourite zoom of all the DSLR options out there. You have to go to modern PL mount cinema lenses designed for Super 35 to get a better one. The aperture is crazy fast yet it is so sharp wide open at F1.2 (on the Speed Booster).

Panasonic GH4 vs Sony A7S compared – who wins the 4K battle on paper?

QuoteQuote:
The lack of internal 4K recording on the A7S is very disappointing. The recorders to make use of this won’t be available for a while and will cost as much as the camera body again. The GH4 ships in late April and records 4K out of the box with no rig. It is very good 4K out of the box as well. It grades superbly and makes for excellent 2K delivery also.

I should get my GH4 from B&H by the end of the month.

That article once again makes me wish Metabones would make Speed Boosters for K-mount lenses.

You could only use speed booster adapters with mirrorless cameras ( except the K-01) and the only one for Pentax lenses is the Lens Turbo. For example you could use the 50mm F1.4 FA Pentax with Lens Turbo PK-NEX adapter as a compact 36mm F1.0 on an APS-C mirrorless camera.

I've been using Micro 4/3 cameras for awhile now as my walk around camera, and have the GH4 on pre-order as I'm getting into video.

With the Speed Booster on M4/3, you could not only use it with FF glass, but also APS-C glass (ending up with a ~1.4x crop instead of native APS-C 1.5x, assuming the image circle doesn't have a hard cutoff). Would be very interested in using the Sigma 18-35 like that article suggests. AFAIK the Lens Turbo doesn't have an aperture control, so modern DA glass without an aperture ring is useless, and I keep hearing issues with flare.

Luminous Landscape : A 4K Video Powerhouse A Stills Workhorse

QuoteQuote:
One of the problems when a camera as full-featured as the GH4, especially when it's a stills / video hybrid, is that there are so many features that it's impossible to list them all, let alone test them all without producing more than the typical reader will bother to read.

But just to touch on some important ones not mentioned here yet, there's a built-in on-screen level operating on two axis, peaking with multiple settable levels, level settable zebras, auto EVF-OVF switching, time code generation, and Wi-Fi along with an i-App for controlling the camera remotely. There's a magnesium alloy die cast body with weather sealing, and a new locking Mode dial.

I am also taken with the "Silent Mode" which instantly turns off everything in the camera than makes sound or causes visual attraction, and it puts the camera into electronic shutter mode. This makes the camera as silent as a point-and-shoot, and is ideal for wedding shooters, stage, TV and film photographers, and anyone else who needs to be unobtrusive when working.

And of yes, when shooting with the electronic shutter the camera can shoot full frame JPG stills at 40 frames per second. Pretty cool, if you ask me.


It takes at least a month of almost daily use to really take the full measure of a new camera, especially one as full featured and complex as the Panasonic GH4. But readers don't want to wait that long to get the scoop, and I don't need to take that long to draw some initial impressions.

To summarize the GH4 in a single sentence, I would say that this is a MFT system camera that is fully competitive in terms of features, functionality and image quality with anything currently on the market. It leaves little undelivered for stills work. If a 16MP image size is adequate for your shooting (and it is for mine), then you'll likely find the GH4 a very practical and enjoyable stills camera.

When it comes to video, the GH4 is in a class of its own. There is nothing currently on the market, or even announced from any manufacturer, that can trump the GH4 when it comes to video in a DSLR / CSC form factor. This is the only camera of its type that can shoot 4K to an internal card, and which also features variable frame rates in HD mode. Note though that a U3 rated card is needed for the highest video bandwidth. These cards are still very pricy.

Oh yes – and at $1,699 the GH4 is nothing short of a bargain.

Am I getting one? In fact we're getting two, and likely a third as well, replacing our GH3 cameras which we use for all of our video productions. I also expect one of the GH4's to become my daily shooter for both stills and video, as well as serving as Chris' workhorses for video production. No, I'm not kissing goodby to my Olympus E-M1, but let's just say that for some purposes I'll be getting a lot cuddlier with the GH4.

It looks like they like it ! I hope B&H ships my GH4 this week.

Same here. I preordered early because these high-end m4/3 products always seem to have supply issues the first several months (possibly artificially). There are a lot of events this summer that I want to shoot video for.
