Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tough light great video camera Been using mine for about 10 months and has always worked great, camera has been on many trips and still looks like new. Photos are great for what I use it for, video is something to see, always looks great. November 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Camera! Even more awesome with VLOG! I love my GH4. As a professional videographer, the GH4 is my go to camera when I need something small and light. With VLOG, Panasonic has upped the game and increased the GH4's ability to shoot dynamic, professional looking video. My only gripe is that the process of getting VLOG is a little ridiculous - who sends a piece of paper in a large box? November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by GH4 is a tool worth every penny GH4 is such a diverse tool. I mainly use it as a video capturing device because of all the resolutions and bitrates the camera has to offer. You have so much control with picture profiles, and also includes a V-Log profile. I use this camera professionally on a daily basis. Great for 4k long exposure timelapses as well because its capabilities to take great photos, along with video. November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Video We just bought this camera for shooting Documentaries and Music Videos. It has worked excellently and was worth every penny. Possibly going to get another in a bit. The only things I miss are great low light performance and shallow DOF. Great little camera other than that. November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply the best pro 4k camera at this price point. I'm not a man of many words. I usually don't write reviews. But what I can tell you is that the GH4 is a game-changer camera. The industry had to adapt to what Panasonic did with this camera. Other companies are careful to deliver only a few features so they can "squeeze" their costumer: Not Panasonic. It is clear to me that this camera is an all-out, best-of-class effort and they delivered. I have owned all sorts of DSLRs and Video Camcorders over the years. And I work all day long with digital media design and production. I have never owned a camera like the GH4 before. Briefly: 1. It is compact, but not sacrificing functionality for the sake of size. 2. It is 4k, 8bit 4:2:0 h264 recording to SD cards internally. AND also 4:2:2 output via HDMI. 3. It allows for V-Log-L: in my opinion a must add-on. 4. Its form factor makes it ideal for a hybrid use of photo and video. 5. Touch screen. 6. Constant firmware updates - giving you more value for your buck. 7. Battery life is great. 8. Not cheap and not expensive. -- I have this camera always with me. That has never happened before. The availability of a professional camera with you at all times can change the way you work. Truly, I can say, there are very few products that I can endorse so strongly - especially in imaging, where everything changes so fast. But this camera at this time, is the best. November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Camera Ever Does anything and everything. Best value for money November 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A powerful and lightweight piece of gear. For those who spend their weekends hiking mountain peaks, the Panasonic GH4 let's you take 4k into the mountains at a fraction of the weight. I've put this camera thru the ringers, it's been sprayed with snow by snowboarders riding down steep couloirs, it's been through the rugged mountains of Nepal, and it's been the most reliable lightweight documentary camera I've used so far. November 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy with 4k Im a big lumix fan I have the GH1 and GH2 and now the Gh4 I love the m43 love 4k and just ordered the vlog firmware update its a great value November 17, 2015
