The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 4K Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera is a true hybrid camera designed for both professional photo and video use. It features a 16.05-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor and a 4-CPU Venus Engine, capable of capturing high-resolution JPEG and RAW stills, as well as UHD 4K 3840x2160 30p/24p and cinematic DCI 4K 4096x2160 video at 24p. Like its predecessor, the GH4 features a weather-sealed magnesium alloy body, while offering increased resolution on both the OLED monitor and electronic viewfinder. It also features built-in Wi-Fi with NFC technology, in-camera creative controls, and a high-speed 49-point autofocus in both photo and video mode.

The GH4 delivers video quality surpassing many professional video cameras. Video can be recorded in a variety of formats, from efficient AVCHD and AVCHD Progressive, to 200 Mbps All-Intra and 100 Mbps IPB MOV and MP4 formats. And because the GH4 is a global camera, the system frequency can be switched between 59.94 Hz (23.98 Hz) and 50 Hz, yielding a variety of recording options including 23.98p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p, and 59.94p. The system can also be switched to 24 Hz to capture true 24p in HD and 4K resolutions.

Video and photos are recorded to SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. For high bit-rate 100 Mbps and 200 Mbps formats, SDHC/SDXC UHS-I Speed Class 3 (U3) cards are supported and recommended. Video recorded to SD cards is 4:2:0 8-bit. Real-time 4:2:2 8-bit and 4:2:2 10-bit video can also be sent to an external monitor or recorder with an optional micro HDMI cable. Additional video features include focus peaking, time code support, and cine-like gamma options. For unique expressions, VBR (Variable Frame Rate), time lapse, and stop motion animation videos can be recording internally without the need for additional post-production processing. The GH4 comes with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack, battery charger with AC cable, body cap, hot shoe cover, USB cable, shoulder strap, and DVD with supplied software.

16.05 Megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine
The 16.05-megapixel Digital Live MOS 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. In conjunction with the quad-core Venus Engine image processor, you'll enjoy dramatically improved sensitivity (maximum ISO 25600), gradation performance, resolution, and color reproduction.
Micro Four Thirds System and Lens Mount
The DMC-GH4's 4/3" type sensor is large enough for shallow depth of field and yet small enough to take advantage of lighter, more compact lenses than a larger format camera would require. Plus, the short flange focal distance of the Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount makes it possible to add optional adapters (sold separately) to use a wide range of lenses, including PL-mount cinema lenses.
Dual OLED Displays - Monitor and Live View Finder
High-speed, organic LED displays are used for both the Live View Finder and the rear monitor. The 3.0" monitor features a 1,036K-dot resolution and a touchscreen interface for intuitive control, while the LVF features a 2,359K-dot resolution. These displays feature 100% coverage and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio. An Eye Sensor automatically switches between the Live View-Finder and the rear monitor, for easy shooting with both.
Magnesium Alloy, Weather Sealed Body
The DMC-GH4 features a magnesium alloy full die cast front and rear frame. A splash and dustproof design is achieved by tightly sealing the joints and control components. To further meet the demands of professional use, the shutter is rated for approximately 200,000 releases.
Wi-Fi with NFC Technology
The DMC-GH4 integrates Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC, letting you use the Panasonic Image App for remote photo and video shooting with compatible smartphones or tablets. The app also lets you embed location data to an image after shooting. If your mobile device isn't NFC compatible, you can still connect to the camera by scanning a QR code displayed on the GH4's monitor.
49-Area AF / Custom Multi AF
The newly developed AF system features 49 points, giving you more flexibility when composing shots. The Custom Multi mode extends that flexibility even more with the ability to freely select what blocks to focus out of the 49 possible focusing areas.
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. This enables the camera to shoot bursts of 12 fps in AFS mode.
Silent Mode
The Silent mode switches the shutter from mechanical to electronic and turns off sounds, while suppressing the AD assist lamp and flash with just a single setting. This is useful when capturing photos in situations where noise and light from the camera would be a distraction to performers or people around you.
In-Camera RAW Data Development
Shoot RAW photos and process the images in-camera to create JPEG images, instead of relying on post-processing. You can adjust the color space setting (sRGB / AdobeRGB), white balance, noise reduction, sharpness, and hue. Lumix's Photo Style, Intelligent D-Range Control, and Intelligent Resolution can also be applied.
Picture Profiles
Choose from a range of Photo Styles and Creative Control modes. Photo Styles for stills or video include Standard, Vivid, Natural, Monochrome, Scenery, Portrait, and Custom. Contrast, sharpness, noise reduction, saturation, and hue parameters can be adjusted for each mode and even set into the camera's memory.
Professional 4K Video Recording
The DMC-GH4 brings the GH-line into the 4K age by offering both 16:9 UHD 4K 3840x2160 video at 23.98p, 24p or 29.97p, and 17:9 DCI (Digital Cinema Initiatives) 4K 4096x2160 videos at 24p. 4K resolutions can be recorded as MOV or MP4 files in high bitrate 100 Mbps IPB codec. When recording at 100 Mbps, you will need an SDHC/SDXC memory card capable of handling the transfer speed.

Please note: For better quality, 4K recording modes use a 1:1 pixel map of the sensor. This yields a slight crop of the sensor, resulting in approximately a full-frame crop factor of approximately 2.3x when shooting DCI 4K resolution.
Selectable System Frequency
The DMC-GH4 is a true global camera, with system frequency switchable from 59.94 Hz (23.98 Hz) and 50 Hz. You can also select 24 Hz frequency for true 24 fps cinematic video.
VFR (Variable Frame Rate)
The VFR mode enables Full HD video recording with slow/fast motion, depending on the video format and system frequency selected.

Available formats include MOV, MP4, AVCHD Progressive, and AVCHD at a variety of frame rates. In MP4 / MOV, high quality LPCM (Linear Pulse Code Modulation) sound can be recorded. All internally recorded video codecs use 4:2:0 color sampling and an 8-bit color depth.
Real-Time 4:2:2 Output with HDMI
Send 4:2:2 8-bit or 4:2:2 10-bit video in real-time to external monitors or recorders via the micro HDMI output. An optional micro HDMI cable is required. When outputting a 4:2:2 10-bit signal over HDMI, video cannot be recorded on the SDHX/SDXC memory card in the camera.
Focus Peaking
For easy focusing, the GH4 incorporates a Focus Peaking function that shows the peak of focus in MF and AF+MF modes. Users can see the peaking of focus while monitoring the subject in live view. It can be set to HIGH / LOW / OFF and the color can also be changed to blue, white or orange according to the color of the shooting scene during live view. Focus peaking is also available while remote photo/video shooting with smartphone or tablet via Wi-Fi.
Luminance Level Adjustment
In addition to the standard luminance level of 16-235 and 16-255, the DMC-GH4 also offers 0-255.

Professional 4K Video Interface Unit (Optional)
For professional video workflows, the optional DMW-YAGH Interface Unit is available. The Interface Unit attaches to the bottom of the camera and provides 2 XLR input terminals, for line or condenser microphones, with independent volume controls and an audio level display monitor. It also has two 3G-SDI capable BNC connectors and two HD-SDI capable BNC connectors for quad-link SDI 4K video in 4:2:2 10-bit, dual-link 4:2:2 10-bit 1080p up to 60 fps, or four simultaneous 1080p streams up to 30 fps - all with timecode. Power is supplied to the unit by a 12VDC 4-pin XLR input.

Please note: When using 4:2:2 10-bit output, simultaneous video recording on an SDHC/SDXC memory card in the DMC-GH4 is not possible.
Interface
The DMC-GH4 comes with a variety of connection terminals including 1/8" microphone and headphone jacks. The camera also features a micro HDMI port, AV output, flash sync terminal, and a 2.5mm remote controller jack.
Supports UHS-I Class 3 Speed SD Cards
The DMC-GH4 uses a variety of advanced recording media, including SDXC, SDHC, and SD Memory Cards. The fastest of these cards is the UHS-I Class 3 (U3), which is recommended when using high bit rate video recording modes over 100 Mbps.
High-Speed Burst Shooting
The DMC-GH4 allows for high-speed burst shooting at 12 fps in single autofocus mode using the mechanical shutter, for up to approximately 40 RAW or 100 JPEG images, and 7.5 fps in continuous AF mode. This lets you capture fast moving subjects in clear focus. When using the electronic shutter, you can shoot in bursts up to 40 fps.

    I had been looking at several DSLR-type cameras for a few months and I had the oppurtunity to shoot some sample video with 2 or 3 of them but I was unable to get my hands on the GH4. I had never used a M4/3 sensor before and I had concerns on how shallow the depth of focus would be.I was originally planning to wait until Photokina 2014 was over and all of the new cameras were announced, namely 7D mkII. But then, I watched 2 camera reviews. One by Dave Dugdale and the other by Philip Bloom. Both of which produced very in depth reviews on the GH4. I was then able to get a good visual of what the camera could do. Obviously, I was impressed. I then made the choice of not waiting on the "other cameras" to come out because of the overwhelming amount of features that the GH4 has. Some of these features will probably never be put into a prosumer level Canon, focus peaking and zebras not to mention having a cool "party trick" of internal 4K. Nikon may include some of these features but I wouldn't bet on it for a few more years.The camera from the video side of things is phenomenal. The amount of detail that you get from the 50/100/200mbs 1080p footage is outstanding. Then you look at the 4K and cinema 4K(only 24fps) footage and it's like getting glasses for the first time. All of the detail that is captured in the 4K footage is breath taking. Some of the first 4K "test footage" clips that I shot were of a series of soy bean fields that were on rolling hills. At f8 (35mm eq of f16) with the Panasonic 25mm f1.4(50mm f2.8 eq), I was able to see ants crawling on a leaf of a soy bean plant that was approximately 10ft away from the camera! That made me feel very content with my purchase. ;-DThe stills side of the camera is great as well. Although I purchased it primarily for the video capabilities, I have been very pleased with the photographs. My first outing with it as a stills camera was at my daughters birthday party 2 days after it was delivered to me. I was able to get some quality pictures with it. A family member of mine that uses full frame sensor cameras was even impressed by the stills that it produced. The auto focus was/is extremely quick. I have yet to have the GH4 "hunt" for focus. The focus with the 25mm 1.4 lens can still get very shallow (See pic). Its not as shallow as a D810/610 or 5D/6D can get but it very respectable. Again very pleased.I have not tested the low light capabilities of the GH4 yet but I DO KNOW that it is NOT the a7s. I haven't, as of yet, seen anything in the GH4's footage that has me regretting my purchase at all.It took me about an afternoon to get use to the menus and where each feature was located. Now, 2 weeks later, I can just about change the settings blind folded. The camera itself is very user friendly.The EVF is an awesome feature too. Now it doesn't matter how bright the shooting environment is, the EVF is there to save the day. For video, using the EVF gives you another point of contact with the camera that helps you stabilize the it.The battery last forever. All day shooting has finally arrived. I have, on several occasions, shot video for approximately 6+ hours WITHOUT changing the battery. This will definitely benefit the time lapse shooters as well. If they need to hike in to a remote location to shoot, it will allow them to maintain a small, compact gear bag even for an extended multiple day trip.CON:The audio from the Rode Video Mic Pro does produce some nasty digital noise. If you cut out the 14-18khz in the audio EQ in post then its tolerable but still noticeable to trained ears. I believe that Panasonic has recently found a fix and will correct the issue if you send the camera back to them for a few days (Sept 2014). For the footage/shoots that require solid audio, I only use the camera's internal audio for syncing purposes anyways so its not that big of a deal to me.If you are currently considering getting this camera, you need to order today. It has very few limitations/cons compared to the amount of features/pros that it offers.I am currently using the GH4 for b-roll and interview purposes for outdoor industry entertainment as well as video shorts for my church.

    Based on video shooting only: The GH4 has amazing image quality at 4K, lots of detail, very very sharp. Lots of Pros, that camera is almost perfect for the price. Buy it, but before that, read the following.

    The biggest downside is obviously the Low Light capability. Man, at ISO 800, it's ok, but at 1600, your footage is barely usable. You don't want to go at iso 1600. This is not a low light camera.

    The Sony a7s low light performance makes me rethink about my choice of product. I think i did wrong, because i'll have to shoot indoor event, soon or later.

    A great overall camera should perform a lot better than the GH4 in low light, but for the price, you have a lot of Pros, including 4K video recording without having to go external. It's just not a low light camera.

    Comments about Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 4K Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera (Body Only):

    Just updated from my old T3i to the GH4. Even though I haven't had enough time with it, it feels great. The small sensor is not a negative aspect if you're like me and will use it with a Metabones Speedbooster. Though it doesn't excel in low-light like the 5D mk3 or the low-light monster A7s, it's not as bad as people say it is. After working with the T3i over 2 years I was used to shoot in poorly lit places like bars and parties, using fast lenses, ISOs between 800-1600 and Neat Video (5-10%) to reduce noise and it always worked well for me, so the GH4 will be perfect: fast lenses combined with the Speedbooster, you can go up to 3200 ISO and still get away with it.Another great thing about the GH4 is you can use a lot of vintage glass. Personally, I'll only be using it with old FD lenses (at least until I buy an EF Speedbooster).Filming at 96fps is AMAZING. Wouldn't recommend shooting 4k handheld, at least not with narrow lenses.What really made me choose the GH4 over the A7s is the new 4k Photo mode, perfect to shoot in anamorphic.

        Comments about Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 4K Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera (Body Only):

        I use this camera mainly for video, filming commercials and corporate projects.I come from Canon and decided not to abandon my 5D Mark II completely. I still keep it for stills and as a backup camera. Needless to say I don't use it much anymore. I bought the Panasonic 12-35mm and it works a charm with the GH4. So many pro features I can finally take advantage of, this is amazing, how did I manage before?I love the 4K, the slowmo (96fps) and smaller details like the integrated timelapse, the flip screen...it all makes the experience so much smoother.On the downside, it's not always easy to find the best picture profile and noise is the enemy here. Better invest in fast lenses if you don't want to have too many problems in post. I wonder if the VLog that's supposed to come in a firmware update is going to make that better. Sony A7S beats the GH4 hands down in low light situations. But even with that, I wouldn't trade my GH4 for the Sony :)

          Already owned the GH3. Am not shooting video mainly stills and i bought this because of the improved AF, Viewfinder/LCD and Focus Peaking. Loved the GH3. This now even better. I believe this to be one of the best handling cameras on the planet. Everything is on the right place. I own a Canon5dMk3 and a 6 D as well as a D800 and take this one over the other 3 90% of the time.

          had the GH3 before and the GH4 ads some nice improvements. I don't shoot video much and upgraded because of focus peaking, better autofocus and the better viewfinder/lcd. The GH3 was already a superb camera and this now is even better. In my view one of the best handling cameras on the planet.

              I use this camera specfically for video and find it to be quite an amazing camera. Actually, the most amazing camera I own. The plus side is that it does timelapse in-camera and creates the video in minutes (it also stores the raw files in case you want to go back and edit them and make your own timelapse). The battery life is unbelievably good.

                      The GH4 is definitely a step in the right direction. The quality of 4K and slow-motion footage is outstanding - while keeping file sizes reasonable. The addition of built-in time-lapse and high-bitrate variable framerate is a big plus. The ability to use a wide variety of lenses makes it a very flexible platform and the wireless features make remote control a snap.

                        Wow, this is an amazing video camera. Here's what I love1) Internal cinema 4K. Really can't beat that at this price range.2) 96 fps slow motion (in 1080). The slow motion out of this camera is stunning.3) Pretty high bit rates. 100 mbps is not bad. Saves space but doesn't skimp too much on image quality. Plus it does 10-bit into an external recorder (8-bit internal) but I haven't tested that out yet.4) It's super easy to use. Menus make sense, there are plenty of customizable buttons, it's chock-full of scopes and meters to make shooting easier.5) Rarely do I see problems with two plagues of DSLR shooting: moiré or rolling shutter. (Technically this is not a DSLR, though, it's mirrorless)6) Lots of handy features. For example, if you move your eye to the viewfinder, the EVF will turn on, move your eye away, the LCD screen turns on. 7) Small form factor. I fly this on a 3-axis brushless gimbal so the small size is essential.What I don't love:1) Sensor format. I come from full frame so having to be in the MFT format wasn't appealing at first. That said, I've come to find that I can do just about anything I could on a full frame with this little guy. I should also mention that this can be somewhat of a positive. With a speed booster or any adaptor you can use about any lens made for MFT and bigger. It was nice to use my vintage Nikon lenses and not have to invest in a lot of new glass.2) Low light performance isn't awesome. With the a7s coming out, it was hard to go with the camera that doesn't perform as well in low light. It gets noisy around ISO 1600, but it's still generally usable. You can still shoot with available light at night much of the time and even by candlelight if you use some fast lenses.For this price with these features, this is probably the best deal on a camera I've ever seen. You won't regret adding the GH4 to your kit.

                          Comments about Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 4K Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera (Body Only):

                          I will be using this as a second camera (upgrading from a 7D) to match my C100. So far I love the dynamic range. Coming from a Canon the menu systems are confusing but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it. Also, the body is a lot lighter and feels less rugged than the 7D. 4K is beautiful and the image is nice and crisp (major step up from the 7D) and once color graded it will match my C100 very well.

                              This new 4K platform from Panasonic is simply packed full of features and great performance. It is intelligently layed out and the articulating flip-out LCD has the most amazing resolution giving you access to all the critical settings and functions. Because of its small size and low profile, be aware that when using a tripod, the bottom of the lens almost touches your mounting plate making it so that when using the focusing and zoom rings on the lens, you may find your grip position doesn't allow space for your fingers to rotate them below the lens. This wasn't an issue with larger DSLRs like the popular full-frame and APS-C formats. I'm looking into a couple different different mounting plates and quick-release mounts that will act as spacers between the tripod mounting plate and the bottom of the camera. I use this camera almost exclusively for shooting 4K video footage and so far the results are superb.

                                Comments about Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 4K Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera (Body Only):

                                I am just beginning my foray into videography as part of my responsibilities at work. Just a little bit of research led me to the Panasonic GH4 for its quality and functionality at this price point. The camera is simple to use, lightweight, and has produced some great footage already.Key features of the camera that stick out to me:- Touchscreen navigation on the LCD- 4K shooting gives me tons of extra pixels to crop my shots and apply Ken Burns effects- Love the idea that we can buy more lenses (vintage or new) in the future to provide more creative options for filming- Battery life seems to be exceptional so far
