This Camera and the Varicam 35 is a joke. You're better off with a Red and I hate Reds. We had the chance to see it first hand at NAB. We work on some big name TV shows and spent some time talking with a Panasonic rep about it. He even offered to send us some cameras to try out on our show, for high end stuff we normally shoot on an Alexa or Amira. We have do stuff on Sony F5s and FS7s. Anyway he sold is on the Varicam. Hyped it up and sounded awesome. Anyway he said check out our Cinema theater you can see the footage first hand so we were excited to watch. Anyways got in and watched several shot films shot on the cameras and much to our surprised it was a major disappointment. Noise dynamic range was ok but not at the cost of quality so it's really not good. And the short films were terrible making the experience even more uncomfortable. We left embarrassed for Panasonic. What were they thinking? A major let down as Panasonic has been struggling to create a good video camera for so long. And for the price it's ridiculous. Their duo iso is a joke too.
Clearly a hype piece. Just read another review and it said photo wise actually a little worst then the Mark 1 and it was a big disappointment.
I hate when someone tried to argue a different point to a fault. The fact of the matter is the rule of thirds works. There is a reason why it exist in the first place. But yes it can be broken. The answer to all this is so simple and people like this dude tries to sound smart about it and over complicates it. The secret is this: What does the rule of thirds do? It helps create balance, thats it. Simple as that. So as long as your composition is balanced you can break it. All the rule of thirds is, is a guide to get that, but you can do it in may different ways. Thats why you can put your subject dead center of frame if the shot is balance. Speaking of which you can also unbalance a frame for effect, if you want to convey a feeling or effect. But anything can create the sought after balance, not just the subjects in frame, it could be lines, colors and brightness, even motion. The only thing you need to understand is how to balance a frame, thats what I teach people.
As long as your drone is under 50lbs (Phantoms, Inspires, 3DRs), you can use it commercially such as in a film or TV show. Under the new required registration you are covered for commercial use as long as you follow the standard rules. The only added guide lines is that you get permission to film and fly over private property. I.E. Releases etc.
DJI looks better the distortion on the GoPro camera still looks bad better but still bad.
Really? Please give me back those 10 minutes of my life. Acting was sub par, writing was nothing of note, and concept just plain bland. I keep waiting for some kind of pay off. Cinematography was ok but nothing spectacular and there were some rough edits. Now with that said stills job well done if these are aspiring film makers good first try. But to say this could get an Oscar... Well the bar must not be that high.
