New Panasonic HC-X1000 Camcorder with Amazing 50p/60p 4K at 150Mbps

03 September 2014 - 02:56 PM

The heat is on...


Here's an overview of the new Panasonic HC-X1000 Camcorder features with Nick Driftwood from personal-view.com & Driftwood Productions UK and Mark Baber from Panasonic UK.
The HC-X1000 is Panasonic’s brand new prosumer camcorder offering some spectacular new features that compete with similar professional camcorder devices costing two or three times as much.
Notably the key attraction is 4K and one that has an amazing 150Mbps 60 fps (NTSC) and 50 fps (PAL) modes at Ultra HD television (UHD) 3840x2160 pixels.
Not only that, like the Panasonic GH4 m43 4k camera, the X1000 sports full cinema like 4K at 4096x2160 pixels at 24fps plus UHDTV 4K 25p and 30p modes at 3840x2160 pixels.
Field tests coming very soon. Plus how to grade the X1000 with the GH4.



In the shadow of the volcano

20 August 2014 - 01:47 PM

A wonderful weekend between the Gulf of Naples and Sorrento with the sight of the Mount Vesuvius above us.


Filmed on three dives:
- Scoglio del Vervece, Massa Lubrense, Naples;
- Isca and Palluscello di Isca, Nerano, Naples.


Unfortunately underwater viz was bad with a annoying current  and particles. I couldn't avoid a lot of backscatter but, who cares! I had a great time diving, filming and.. editing.

Shot on a Panasonic GH2 + Lumix 7-14mm loaded with Nick Driftwood's MOON T7 settings; Nauticam Housing, 2x Keldan Luna 8 CRI lights on camera and 2x FIX Aquavolt3500 lights on model.

I need a good example of a soft bag (ThinkTank, LowePro and other) for carry your M43 kit as carry-on baggage on airplane or small trips.

Do you have some photos of your gear packed and your toughts?
