Thanks! Yes that's another benefit of the GH4 that's worth adding to the list. Do you have a link/tutorial for how to set it up so you get 3 different shots from one framing? (Your idea sounds great for cases when we interview two people at the same time!)
I don't think we'd be shooting in 4k all the time though as I imagine you fill memory card and hard drive space rather quickly with 4k files.
Thank you! I was wondering whether it might be a bit on the short side, but with the sort of interviews we do (busy people, short interviews), there won't be time to swap lenses.
Do you know of another lens that might be suitable, like something equivalent to the Canon 24-105?
Thanks Guy - that's by and large also my experience actually. Giving the subject a list of topics is great advice - I will do that in future. That's a great way to avoid them being overly prepared.
I guess the main trouble sometimes is to convince people that they really don't need to read off a notepad to answer a question on what they do every day, they know the answer!
Brilliant - I have probably made all the mistakes he mentions (i.e. done it the complicated way)
Sorry for the double post - we need a report or delete option.
What are people views on future proofing lenses? I have a T3i at the moment and don't want to invest in Canon L series lenses because I might not stick with Canon when I upgrade. I'm not in bad need of better lenses for now and just buy old all manual lenses when I want to try something new. That's ok but for photography the lack of AF can be a bit tedious (but also fun of course if you're playing around). So this seems silly to me. I want to get nice lenses that I can use to their max potential (AF for photography, aperture control) even if I switch brand. So I feel a bit stuck - I'm just waiting until I have the money to upgrade my camera.
