Panasonic has announced the new Lumix GH4 which is the world’s first compact system micro four thirds camera to feature 4K video recording.
We have decided to cover all the videos taken with the GH4 mirrorless and put all the reviews and tests together. You can watch these videos below.
The Lumix GH-4 camera features 16MP Live MOS sensor and Venus Engine IX processor with an enhanced fast and accurate Auto Focus (AF) system (approximately 0.07 seconds).

Panasonic Lumix GH4 (4K) vs. Panasonic GX7 (AVCHD)

Martin Wallgren : “A short cinematic piece shot with a pre-production GH4 and vintage Sankor 16C 2X anamorphic adapter on OM 50/1.8 lens. Shot in 4K DCI and edited in a 1080p timeline in FCPX, I wanted to see how the 2X anamorphic held up in terms of sharpness with all the detail in the 4K footage. Really pleased with the results. Ungraded footage! Enjoy!”

Panasonic GH4 Slow-mo at 96fps and 4K rolling shutter test at EosHD
Panasonic have made great efforts to speed up the sensor in the GH4 so in slow-mo at 96p and standard 1080/60/50p the GH4 has less rolling shutter than the GH3 thanks to a 50% faster sensor readout. In 4K mode the sensor has to readout 4x the amount of data than in 1080p and the 50% increase in readout speed isn’t enough to compensate. The result is that in 4K the GH4 has slightly worse rolling shutter than the GH3 in 1080p.
Focus Numerique tested the GH4 High ISO quality
On the 100-800 ISO range, the images of GH4 are superb with a nice dynamic and bold colors. Only at ISO 800 the finer details (100% on-screen display) are slightly faded. Nothing so dramatic. At 3200 ISO, the GH4 provides the first signs of weakness with greater noise and greater detail and dynamics loss. Again, the images are usable, but beyond this sensitivity, the damage will be greater.
