@Guy If somebody can't afford it, I'm all for them getting it for free. I don't think it's being selfish if you genuinely can't afford it. I have the same opinion with TV shows and films.
The price in Ireland is a lot higher from what I've heard from the shops that will supply it and even from Panasonic.
I don't think this will stop them releasing updates for cameras in future. I believe it will make them airtight the product before release. It's a good learning curve for them.
Depending on what the final price is over here will depend on whether I buy it or not. At the equivalent of $99 I will happily purchase it. If it's a fair bit more, I'll wait until I HAVE to upgrade the firmware to buy it.
And now today you can get V-log L just through the mobile app then save it to a custom setting for free.
There's a lot of airsoft stuff that looks quite good at a reasonable price. Maybe you could look into that.
I would recommend the Panasoinc GH4. Great video quality, battery last around 4-6 hours. As Guy said, when V-Log comes out in October it will be a big upgrade.
I got my GH4 in December as an upgrade from the Canon 60D and like it more and more each day. No regrets about it at all.
I have a Rode NTG-2 with the Zoom h4n audio recorder.
I've heard of people having trouble with low audio, sometimes to the point of almost non existence with this combination. It never really happened on me except for one time when the output was a WAV file and it was being edited on a Mac. (I normally edit in Lightworks on Windows) On Windows I've never had this problem. Luckily the sound was pulled up and sounded good in the final film
Nice story. Very interesting.
