Every time we see well-captured footage from Panasonic's little 4K wonder, we have to remind ourselves that this didn't come from a camera rig costing $60,000
This is yet more GH4 footage but we're showing it because there's a bit of everything here to show of this diminuatively-priced 4K camera.
Apart from the lovely summer light in Boulder, there's time lapse and effortless slow motion.
You can see that the camera has a deeper depth of field than full-frame models, but that's only a problem if you don't know how to use it to your advantage. In this film, it just lets you see more.
This is a great time to be a video maker. There's never been so much choice, and so much quality at this price level.
Production notes from Balcony Nine Media:
