Should You Invest in a Camera or Lenses? It’s all too easy to feel like the story is the only thing that matters in a film.

Should You Invest in a Camera or Lenses?

And to a large extent, the story is the most important aspect of making a movie. If the screenplay is weak and the plot is boring, it doesn’t matter what tools you use to try to make the film come to life. It probably won’t. As an emerging filmmaker, once you do find that inspired screenplay you feel good about working with, you know that the story isn’t the only thing that matters—now you’ve got a good plot to work with, it’s up to you to tell that story, and to make it look as great as you can. GH4 Review: The king of Guerrillas. The privilege of having an early preproduction GH4 camera falling on my lap when only a few in the world barely had the opportunity to see it from behind glass was the most obvious sign to start this blog… So here it is… my first article will be a GH4 Camera review.

GH4 Review: The king of Guerrillas

In this review I was mainly focusing on the video features of the camera, which IMHO outshines its photographic capabilities, not that they’re poor, but because the video features are beyond AWESOME! But before I start, here’s a little disclaimer: 1- This review is based on a preproduction camera with an early firmware 0.5, the final release might have some improvements to many of the points I have mentioned in my review. 2- All opinions mentioned here are purely subjective as they reflect my personal experience with the camera.

This review is not affected by any official or none official affiliation or sponsorship from Panasonic or any other commercial entity. Color Finale - Professional Color Grading in Final Cut Pro X.

The release of the V-Log L upgrade for the Panasonic GH4 brought new attention to log capture in affordable cameras, resulting in new waves of both interest and confusion.

V-Log L on the GH4 revisited, part 1 by Adam Wilt - ProVideo Coalition

I’ve previously taken a first look at the GH4’s V-Log capabilities, focusing mostly on the luma and chroma noise implications of squishing a log image’s wider dynamic range into a narrower range of code values, and the limitations of recording log with a low-bitrate codec. Now I look further at the GH4’s log mode, and discuss why you might want to use it. In Part 2 of this article, I’ll look at its drawbacks and side effects, and reveal some, um, interesting aspects of the GH4’s signal processing. TL;DR version (because this is a long article): V-Log L on the GH4 doesn’t buy you much if any more usable DR; what it gains in headroom it loses to noise in the shadows.Log does however give you different tonal-scale handling and color rendering, which makes it an interesting and useful addition to the palette of GH4 looks.
