And it was no good.So the Bugatti veyron must be crap as well. BUT I take it the 4/3 is the limit the current technology can handle for processing 4k data and still keep it to a pretty heavy SLR size with very low battery life. I use m4/3, APS-C, and FF. But if Olympus comes out with a camera with similar video capabilities AND their excellent IBIS, Panasonic will likely be forced to respond. The lens, with a 35mm-equivalent of 25.5-105mm, will be available in mid-January for $799. But that shouldn't be taken to mean that the GH4 is a minor update. A bit the same with the fact that not all movies are getting any better when converted to 3D (since 3D only pays off with certain types of movies). You do realise that motion pictures are filmed at 24fps don't you? The exciting GH4 also features a 16 megapixel sensor, 12fps burst shooting, 3 inch swivelling touchscreen, electronic viewfinder, built-in wi-fi and NFC connectivity, a weather-proof body, and an extensive ISO range of 100-25600. Manual shooting with with non-panasonic lenses is a guesswork nightmare. The resizing of the whole 4k section for video in the various ways for the GH4 and A7s are going to have a significant impact compared to you average line skipping implementation when it comes to noise.

By the way, a trs is no more standard than a trrs connector. There's no denying that it is a very useful feature. Personally I prefer having discrete input, especially since this allows control through the menu.

The daguerreotype was the first commercially viable photographic process when it was introduced to the world in 1839. but it has more rolling shutter.

At launch only the GH4 and DMW-FL360L and DMW-FL580L flashes will be TTL compatible; future firmware updates will add support for other models. Of course processor works harder, motion compensation alone processes at least 256 times more data than is read from the sensor. Very interesting article. Which means if you intend to shoot 4k with both, the LX100's lens is a little wider comparitively than you would think, and much closer to a "true" 4/3rds sensor. Depending on which system you're in and what your needs are, they might just be the compact, well-priced and impressively sharp little primes you've been looking for. I just wondered if anyone else is really tired of references to 'drinking the kool aid'? Could this cut it with a f1:8 lens fixed?

If the problem has been truly fixed by Panasonic, I hope when I put my order in, I receive the latest batch, though still there is some concern that the fix raises the noise floor level.I'm also surprised that the GH4 doesn't use an industry-standard trs connector. Perhaps it's a feature they can ad to a GH4 successor down the road when competition gets tighter. Question. The lack of IBIS is one of the things that gives me serious pause about selling my Pentax DSLR and lenses in favor of the GH4. For static tripod shots, with minimal movement in the frame, 24fps looks 'ok', though I can still see an occasional nervous twitch to in-frame motion - that prevents me from panning. Panasonic's message about listening to professional videographers is also familiar but the extent to which they're catered-for is unpredented on a camera with such a mass-market price tag. every 4 pixels becomes 1 making downsampling very efficient. even if it takes 2 years for the processors to become efficient enough to prevent failure in tiny bodies. But there are other reasons for getting it, a lot of them in fact, already discussed to death here on forums. Portuguese/Dutch (born and always lived in The Netherlands btw). Combining a 37MP full-frame sensor, minimalist controls and Lightroom Mobile built in, it's a refreshing – if a bit quirky – take on the smartphone-meets-camera concept.

With a 1.8x squeeze, the lens produces a more pronounced anamorphic effect than the 1.33x lenses offered by Sirui, albeit at a much higher cost. So I don't know if the noise issue had anything to do with it, but I also heard (or read somewhere) that the heatsink on the sensor would have made implementing sensor IS more difficult.
