I can't get the backbutton focus to work while recording on my GH4. Am I missing a special setting or something?
Is the back AE/AF Button set to 'AF-ON' within the menu. Are you on the latest FW for your GH4 body?
I agree. The main reason I wish for the capability of shooting 50p (Europe here...) is the ability to have more slow-down / stabilisation potential. Using optical flow to slow down 25p footage has its limits.
The in camera slowmo stuff looks pretty sweet from the demos!
From previous attempts at fixing footage. Optical Flow and Post Stabilisation, both really need to be 'shot for' at shutter speeds of minimum of 1/250 - 1/500 (not the standard FPS*2) to get crisp individual frames, for the software to see where things are moving, other than motion blur. But dropping the 60fps stuff to 24fps should look nice.
Thanks. So 10-bit-4:2:2 All-I is only planned up to 30p @ 4k. This may tip the balance towards me sitting this one out and sticking with my GH4.
I wish cameras like this would give us the option of doing 2.7k or 1440p like the GoPros and give us the higher bit depth and color sampling. It's a great format for stabilizing and doing a bit of re-framing before delivering in 1080p.
Well yes of course. And that is a good advantage. But as for >30p delivered at >30p, I don't think I've ever heard anyone say they actually like it, apart from the manufacturers selling it. Anyway, that's a subject for another discussion.
Nick, I agree, after seeing this 60p stuff on youtube, I can see myself NOT shooting in that format, I'm just not ready I suppose to watch that type of motion - doesn't lend itself to storytelling type footage. I was in two minds to swap out my Ninja Flame for the Inferno (same housing luckily) to get the 60fps, but perhaps not.
Won't be be getting the anamorphic full sensor (4:3) 5K readout in one of the FW updates? This will provide similar image to the 1440p ?
However, I still think the GH5 is a big update from GH4 shooters, even if it was still only shooting 4K@30p. We now have full width of the sensor, no rolling shutter, the IBIS / DualIS for more silky smooth shoots, better ISO performance, AutoISO and fingers crossed better color rendition.
