The Lumix DMC-GH4 4K Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with Interface Unit provides you with a hybrid camera capable of 16 MP photos and high-resolution 4K video, and an interface unit designed to add the audio/video connections needed for professional video productions. The 16.05-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor and 4-CPU Venus Engine of the GH4 can capture UHD 4K 3840x2160 30p/24p and cinematic DCI 4K 4096x2160 video at 24p. The camera also features a weathered-sealed magnesium alloy body, an OLED monitor and electronic viewfinder, and a high-speed 49-point autofocus system. Additional video features include focus peaking, time code support, and cine-like gamma options.

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 an SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card. Video recorded to SD cards is 4:2:0 8-bit.

The Interface Unit turns the GH4 into a video camera ready for professional workflows. When attached to the GH4, the Interface Unit provides 2 XLR inputs for line or condenser microphones, and gives you independent volume control of the left and right channels. There is also an audio level display monitor and +48V of phantom power available for each channel.

When it comes to video outputs, the Interface Unit provides four BNC connectors - two 3G-SDI capable and two HD-SDI capable, allowing 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. The Interface Unit also has a BNC connector for timecode input, and converts the GH4's micro HDMI output to a full-sized HDMI output. For power, a 4-pin XLR 12VDC input is available. Please note that when using 4:2:2/10-bit output, simultaneous video recording to an SDHC/SDXC memory card in the DMC-GH4 is not possible.

      Comments about Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 4K Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with Interface Unit:

      I'm a commercial videographer and filmmaker. I primarily use this project for situations when I want a more polish feel to the video. With the firmware update, the Variable Frame rate option is spectacular - 1/4 speed overcranking at Full HD for a camera of this class is pretty spectacular. Syncro-Scan was an awesome and impressive feature. The OLED monitor is a vast improvement of the previous systems. The build is sturdy and durable, and the dials feel much more significant than previous editions. I use this in tandem with the Atomos Ninja Blade recorder, and I'm super happy with the results. I wish the camera was designed with the YAGH unit in mind. It's awkwardly, yet sturdily attached, and it limits the positioning of the LED. The interfaces are a spectacular addition to the camera, but I wish it was self-powered. The unit will not work without it's own power-supply - a 12V 4-pin XLR. It would work with a variety of V-mount battery options and there are a few other choices, but it just adds to the trouble it takes to get this unit up and running.

          Comments about Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 4K Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with Interface Unit:

          PROS + CONS

          GH4
          - great image quality (8 bit is limit of in-camera cards)
          - 4K in-camera recording, awesome
          - works as smooth as GH3. Up and running in minutes
          - need new higher speed cards for storage

          INTERFACE UNIT
          - XLR-type power supply and cord not included in kit? Huge oversight

          - Sync problems when using SDI outs and in-camera down-convert when shooting 4K. AV sync is almost useless when camera attempts to down-convert for monitoring HD signal on 2K monitors over SDI. Have not tried HDMI output yet but hoping sync is better with that output.

          - SDI outputs apparently intended to be used more for sending 4K 10-bit image to external recorder. You will spend another $2K - $4k on external recorder + another few thousand on a 4K monitor. Think it over.

          RECOMMENDATION:
          - buy the GH4 and skip the interface unit. It doesn't offer that much value for the cost and will require additional purchases to even become functional. You can monitor HDMI out of the GH4 with mini-connector. However, if you absolutely must have 10-bit image quality, be prepared to drop some coin on an external recorder from AJA or similar. Your 10-bit DSLR rig will be much larger and more cumbersome than the stealthy GH4 which does a great job all by itself.
