The much anticipated Panasonic Lumix GH4 has finally reached the store shelves today and is available for order. We've talked about this camera in the past, and impressed with it's 4K video capabilities, but more so on the fact that it's 10-bit 4:2:2 recording at the same resolution. At the reasonable price point of $1,698, the Panasonic GH4 may be the best camera choice available for videographers on a budget.
A month or so ago, we were able to talk with the product development department of Panasonic and discuss this much anticipated camera. They promised us amazing image quality at an affordable price. They also hinted that Magic Lantern may be able to add custom firmware to the system with ease - bringing capabilities to the already amazing little 4:3rds mirrorless system.
The Lumix GH4 is now available for order for $1698 on B&H Photo's website. While the $2,000 interface unit for the system is not yet available, it is available for preorder on B&H Photo as well.
Had my GH4 for a week already. B&H is for suckers who like to overpay.

Not for nuthin', by why do we have to deal with a third-party hacker, which can cost you your hardware warranty, to get performance that is obviously already available within the hardware? By their own admission, no less! Why not just let us have it in the first place?
