Fstoppers Review Of The Panasonic Lumix GH4: Is It Ready For Professional Use?

Fstoppers Review Of The Panasonic Lumix GH4: Is It Ready For Professional Use?

In short, no it is not. But a few minor dealbreakers are all that stand between leaving this camera on the shelf, and making it best digital camera in its class.

After nearly a month of capturing video, stills, and timelapse media with the Panasonic GH4, I laughed, I cried, and I almost threw it off a mountain. At times it was a joy to shoot with, and other times it wouldn’t even power on with a full battery. I’ll give you a complete, unbiased rundown in my full review, complete with video samples.

Shoot Two Completely Different Lighting Setups with One Push of the Shutter Button

You might someday find yourself working within the overall vision of someone else – like an editor, an art director or, in this case, a director of photography – when shooting on assignment for publications as big as Sports Illustrated. Limited time with your subject and being asked for simple lighting against a simple background isn’t uncommon in this industry. So how would you go about getting the type of photographs your employer wants plus creating a dramatically lit and colored set for yourself?

Jalen, who was clearly upset with the call, threw his arms up in disgust. In that split moment, a picture was taken (among a group of shots) that made it look as if he was giving the finger to the opposing team and fans.

There are a few behind the scenes videos out there that show photographers working with ice climbers, but often the climbs are right next to the road, making it convenient to bring tons of gear, power, and spend all day getting coverage. So what does it take to create those images when you're miles deep into the woods, and can only take what you can carry on your back?

Sports Illustrated Puts Kate Upton in Zero Gravity... Because, for Science?

Sports Illustrated Puts Kate Upton in Zero Gravity... Because, for Science?

Kate Upton? Bikini? ZERO GRAVITY? Sports Illustrated just keeps giving me more and more reasons to not read anything about sports. Now don’t get me wrong, Kate Upton is a beauty but these images, on the other hand, are mediocre. Out of focus, multiple white balances, and even some weird facial expressions going on with people in the background. Overall, I am not sure how I feel about the shoot.
