What steadycam are you using and what is your camera payload? I was looking at the Glidecam 4000 for my Panasonic GH2 with battery pack, Voigtlander lens, Samyang 10mm T3.1 etc. What is your advise on purchasing a steadycam?
I agree with that only if you need it. Many people don't use half the features on their cameras. I would find improved low light a great help because I need it 25% of the time. & Yes 4:2:2, would be awesome
I dissaree. There is nothing wrong with the GH4 apart from it's increased crop sensor and soft 96fps slow motion picture. Videography and photography are shot at all levels of light, and it all depends in what conditions you are shooting that determines a camera's low light capability. On average the GH4's Low light capability is OK and can be increased with lenses such as Voigtlander F/0.95 wide apertures and the Metabones adaptors available. There is always a way around it. Most shoots employ some kind of external light source anyway and most of the time one spends time having to use neutral density filters on their camera to cut down the light. If you are shooting in the dark purchase a camera suited to the task, just like a hammer for a nail and a screwdriver for a screw. Our choice of cameras are our tools and we have to choose carefully.
LMAO LOL. What's about the GH100 LOL I am still using the GH2. Many people haven't even maximised the use of HD Yet they look for 8K LOL. The reason why I did not go for the GH4 is because of it's increased cropped sensor. I much prefer the GH2's sensor. I'm also not too happy with the 96fps slow motion on the GH4. I'm not waiting for the GH5, I will just continue using what I have and just try out the GH5 when it comes along and see if it meets my production needs.
I would never wait as I'm not a tech freak. It is best to work with what you have and then try out the new tech and see if it is needed for your production. Buy our of need and not want
