For the moment the first contact is excellent. Who already had the GH3 hand is simply the same case with a small button in addition to the main barrel that allows the block in PSAM mode, which is my strong faith practice that prevents it moves on its own between 2 packed in a bag and ending up in scene mode “Birthday Photo” when we drew his case to make the photo of the century thinking that everything is set as the last time it was stored.ou may not know it but I am fortunate to have a copy of pre-set valuable Panasonic Lumix GH4 last few days. It runs currently with firmware version Beta 0.4 but even when I had the privilege to show you the first images from the video box.
I started to do some pictures just to see what it looked like at the dive and especially dynamic because it is one of the promises that have me most excited about the announcement of the datasheet.
Loose and disorderly I enjoyed the latitude that remained for me pretty average with GH3, increased definition is certainly a huge plus but I do not yet have access to all 4K functions are not activated in all this beta. It is currently limited to the Ultra HD in 3840×2160 25p while the final version will also offer 4096×2160 to 30p.
I liked the ability to adjust the curve of the highlights and shadows as you can do on the GX7, the presence of modes CINELIKE D is a real plus. The ability to manage a master pedestal, and have the option to manage an extensive fashion gray scale 0 to 255 ou de 16 to 235 shows that Panasonic has decided to push the envelope much further than previous models which delights me.
The quality of the viewfinder is very good, finally found enough dive to the point and the presence of peaking is very useful, an adjustable magnification is available and this is my faith very handy. I have not been playing with the shadows, I expected that Panasonic sent me a new firmware to go further because this version is still very limiting.
Side photo I noticed a very nice thing shutter announced as a new fact a pretty quiet noise and burst mode is simply stunning. The ability to have access to the electronic shutter is always a huge plus for those who want to be completely silent including pictures shows and stills.
In any case my feeling is really good, I am very excited by this new body really matures. Since the arrival of the RED One, and after leaving the GH1 I started to dream of a hybrid ultra compact body, affordable and high performance with outstanding image quality sufficient quality to attack the big screen, that we can carry around everywhere. I think were born, I will confirm after further testing but I think it is called GH4 !
