Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Cine Camera Search The Knights fought to protect the Kingdom as the Stagecoach desperately fought off the Indians. Vampire’s, Spies, and Soldiers all wanted to be released. This was my dilemma. All these stories waiting for an opportunity to be set free. I decided to put my Film School education to use and make Indie Films. I was going to need a camera capable of Cinematic images. I began the search for a new camera. I looked towards to typical names. Nikon, too expensive, to big, and not very cinematic. Canon has the 5D, but that is large, expensive and outdated. Their Cinema line is nice but way to expensive. Olympus, Fuji, nice photo cameras but not great video………………………………………….. It came down to three manufacturers Sony, Samsung, and Panasonic. Sony has the A7S II and the A7R II. Both cameras produce a nice image but there are some big negatives. The A7R II is too expensive and overheats when shooting 4K. It’s out. The A7S II is great in low light but it is expensive and needs a bazillion batteries to run it. Also the native glass is slow and pricey. It’s gone. Next up is the intriguing Samsung NX1. It does have many interesting features and does produce a nice image. That being said, it feels like a camera that has been rushed into production. There are some really strange problems. The image is overly processed to keep the files small and that creates problems in the image. It does not support H264 only H265 which does not have a lot of support yet. There is a also a small amount of native glass, and it is pricey……………………………………………………. On to my choice., the Panasonic GH4. The GH4 produces very Cinematic images without all the negatives. It has been a workhorse camera for the industry. Battery life is great. The menu system and button layout are intuitive. It does HD slow motion at 96 fps and is usable slo-mo. Other cameras specs have a higher rate for their slow motion but the image is terrible……………………………………………. The 4K mode produces very sharp and detailed images. To get the cinematic look of film you will have to adjust the picture profiles. I personally like to shoot with “Supertone” settings which were developed by a cinematographer who goes by the Supertone monika. The settings are: Portrait mode: Contrast +3, Sharpness +1, Noise Reduction 0, Saturation -5, Hue-2, and Highlight/Shadow Curve -5/0. Panasonic has recently released an optional new V-log light profile, $99 and well worth it, that will give you 2 extra stops of dynamic range and give you that Cinematic look after grading, of course…………………………………. The build of the GH4 is fantastic. A magnesium body, gives you a solid feel and the small size is welcome. It is remarkable that mirrorless cameras can produce professional results without having to lug a trunk full of gear. The Micro Four Third sensor allows for the diminutive size of the camera and lenses. Speaking of lenses, the Panasonic Lumix lenses are extremely sharp, small, and very well priced. What is great about the GH4 is that, with an adapter, you can use almost any lens on it. Unless you have an electronic adapter, you will lose autofocus, and all electronic functions of the lens. Video should be shot manually anyway, so that is not a big issue. There are some electronic adapters, Olympus Four Third, and Canon EOS as examples that do retain the electronic connection…………………………….. The GH4’s time lapse function is robust and very easy to use, and there is also an Anamorphic function that allows the use of Anamorphic glass. This used to be reserved for very high end Cinema Cameras, think Alexa………………………………………….. Let’s get to the negatives of the camera. First off the size of the sensor. The Micro Four Thirds sensor does give a 2X crop. This means that if you used a 24mm lens the Full Frame equivalent would be 48mm. This does have its disadvantages especially when a wide angle shot is needed, or you want a heavy Bokeh (blurred background) image. There is a solution for this, it is a focal reducer or Speed Booster. This adapter will lower the crop factor and give a APSC sensor equivalent. I love using a Speed Booster because I can use one lens instead of two. If I bring a 50mm lens it is like bringing a 50mm and 75mm lens. The Speed Booster takes up a lot less space than another lens. Oh, I almost forgot. The Speed Booster also will give you an extra stop of light. Pretty Trick huh…………………………………………….. Another, so called, negative is low light performance. The Panasonic GH4 is a good low light camera. You will hear negatives about the GH4 being a bad low light camera because it was introduced at the same time as the Sony A7S which is the best low light camera in the world. What can compete with that?....................................................., For me the GH4 is just what I was looking for in a Cinema camera and I am extremely happy with my purchase.

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 You Just Can't Beat It! I've had this camera for 3 months and I Love It! Went from Canon 7D to GH2 and now to the beautiful GH4! Is it perfect? No. But what camera is? The thing is, there is no other camera on the market at this price point that delivers the quality that the GH4 does. Combine it with good lighting and good lenses and you have an industry capable beast. Combine it with an external recorder that can do 10bit or the external system from Panasonic and you take it to the next level. Would I purchase this again, YES! Over and Over again! November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by No Regrets with this Purchase PROS: I upgraded to this camera a couple months ago and use it with nikon lenses and a speedbooster. The 4k quality is an amazing feature, plus the full HD slow motion, which I use all the time. It's light weight and can be used both in run-and-gun situations and more cinematic situations. Seriously I have no real complaints, it was definitely worth the money. CONS: Low light is not the greatest for video (and really not good for pictures), but definitely manageable. It really is geared much more toward video, so sometimes the conditions are not right for good picture quality, but are for good video quality. It can be quite shaky when doing hand-held, but you improve with experience. I've also noticed the jello effect. OVERALL: I have no doubts this was the right camera for me. I've been working as a travel documentary videographer and it's been so useful to be able to get 4k on the run. November 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 Pound for pound 4k Champion This camera is a game changer for many film makers and photographers. It records in camera 4k the quality is amazing. the Micro 4/3 format allows you to adapt a wide variety of lens. With the introduction of Vlog-L it allowed you to shoot flat and match grading with other camera as well and more dynamic range. The image app is amazing because it allows you to use your phone or tablet as a field monitor and remotely record. The Gh4 is very small, lightweight and powerful. I only wish that it had better low light capabilities but its a trait inherent to the micro 4/3 form factor with it's smaller sensor. So come on Panasonic we gladly await to be blown away by the Gh5 with hopefully a super 35 sensor. You have a customer for life as long as you guys keep on breaking the mold with kick butt features at an unbelievable price point and that's coming from a former Canon shooter and now this is being my 2nd Panasonic G series camera.
