Former print media geek turned video geek.
I applaud Panasonic for listening to customers and advancing their GH series cameras. I have been using them (GH2, GH3 and GH4) for a while, and they have served me well. However, my GH3 and GH4 have both required servicing, and the performance of the MFT sensor has been a struggle for me. VLOG is disappointing, but I'm hoping that may work better with the GH5's 10 bit recording.
My main camera is a SONY FS5, and I will be getting another B-camera this year. I'm waiting to see much more real world footage off the GH5 to determine if I was keep one foot in the MFT world, or go replace my MFT gear with the forth coming SONY A7S.
FWIW, I'm not a brand evangelist. I just want to use gear that works for me.
How are milliamp hours rated? Is there a standard way batteries are tested?
I have used vimeo's review page feature with a few clients and they like having the option to make comments to specific moments in a video. It is a fairly basic system and lacks some features, like versioning, found in other systems, but its still nice to offer to clients for feedback.
I just can't get excited about crowd funding any more. Too many projects I've funded either came up short, very late, or not at all. I recognize there is a risk, but the incentives usually don't outweigh the risk and wait. If a product is really good, I'll pay market price when it finally comes to market.
Lots of good information, but I wish I could have heard the questions to make sense of some of the answers. Some answers were obvious, but others were not. Anyway, I enjoyed this, so thanks for posting it.
