In Topic: Questions for NA-GH4 users

17 December 2014 - 04:35 PM


I tend to use my left hand with a muck stick to stabilize on a sandy bottom or in between coral, and only operate the camera with my right hand, and I found the GH4 is hard to do so because of its size.

 

I didn't catch this statement, or maybe I was just hoping I didn't really read it. I recommend using both hands with the NA-GH4. This will allow you to access the thumb controls with your right hand by leaving just your fingers on the right grip.

On the pic here you can see that the WB lever is just behind the record trigger - which makes it easiest for thumb access:

Same here - thumb used to activate the WB lever. No re-assign to any of the function buttons. Again, this in on the NA-GH4 housing, not the NA-GH3 where the white balance was in a different location I believe.

I believe I:

1) Use right thumb to trigger white balance

2) use right thumb on dial to select new balance setting and/or

3) select up arrow on dial to reset MWB and press center button to lock WB

 

With back button focus, my index finger pretty much stays on the record trigger and my thumb does all the work (except for setting iris)

 

With that being said, this is the easiest housing I've ever used for video.

David - have you checked with Chris Parsons or your Italy Rep (admin@digital-mediaservice.com)?
