Panasonic GH4

Available Today

The Panasonic GH4 is a professional grade hybrid photo / video camera that captures video in up to 4K resolution. Key features include:

  • 16.05 MP Live MOS Sensor. The 16.05-megapixel Micro 4/3 sensor delivers high-quality images with high sensitivity and quick response times. The increased signal speed readout helps to suppress the effects of rolling shutter, and the quad-core Venus Engine image processor provides improved sensitivity, gradation performance, resolution, and color reproduction.
  • 4K Video. The GH4 offers 4K video recording in both 16:9 (3840×2160) and 17:9 (4096×2160) aspect ratios. 4K video can be recorded as MOV or MP4 files in high bit rate 100 Mbps IPB codec. However, do note shooting 4K at 100 Mbps requires a UHS Speed Class 3 memory card. The camera can switch system frequencies from 59.94 Hz (23.98 Hz) and 50 Hz, as well as 24 Hz frequency for true 24 fps cinematic video. For even more flexibility, the optional Panasonic DMW-YAGH Interface Unit (requires external power) gives you 2 XLR inputs and 4 SDI outputs (2 3G-SDI & 2 HD-SDI).
  • Versatile HD Recording Formats. The GH4 records ultra high bitrate HD video at 200 Mbps (All-Intra) or 100 Mbps (IPB), as MOV / MP4 / AVCHD Progressive / AVCHD at a variety of frame rates.. All internally recorded video codecs use 4:2:0 color sampling and an 8-bit color depth, while real-time 4:2:2 8-bit or 4:2:2 10-bit video can be sent to external monitors or recorders via micro HDMI.
  • High-Speed Autofocus. The high-precision Contrast AF integrates DFD (Depth from Defocus) technology to achieve AF speeds of approximately 0.07 sec in AFS mode, enabling the camera to shoot bursts of 12 fps in AFS mode. The 49-point system provides more flexibility when composing shots, with a Custom Multi mode that allows custom selection of what focus points to prioritize.
  • Pro-Grade Build. The magnesium alloy body features a dust- / splash-proof design that complements the many native Micro 4/3 weather-sealed lenses.

Justin’s Take

The GH4 is a great compact 4K solution, it serves well as a B-camera to a C100, FS7, or even a RED Epic. It is also a solid A-camera for jobs that demand high bit rate footage, 4K-capture and exceptionally good battery life.
Though often forgotten as such, this camera is primarily a stills camera, with its 16MP sensor and decently fast auto-focus (when using m4/3 lenses) it ends up being a very handy for the cinematographer using this primarily for motion but wants something that can quickly flip to stills mode and capture professional stills.
