Excerpt: I upgraded from the LUMIX GH3. I am not a professional; I would call me an advanced amateur. I use my camera for family and for trips mostly. I am becoming more interested in making video stories. This GH4 is unexpectedly very fast with photos and the quality images are impressive comparing with GH3. I like the Peaking and zebras. I love to use legacy lenses with manual focusing and peaking is awesome.
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time
Excerpt: The GH4 is fantastic. As a legacy user of the GH1, GH2, and GH3, I am very please with the amount of updates and design items included. Cleaner at higher ISOs than the previous cams and works seamlessly with the MFT lenses and GH3 accessories. The frame burst in RAW is insane! If you have a fast SD card, it will seemingly shoot nonstop exposures. Still much lighter than a full frame camera so the all day work environments are not too demanding. Thumbs Up!
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time
Excerpt: After shooting with Canon DSLRs for years, I decided to take my first step in the 4K transition with the Gh4. I couldn't be happier. Not only do I get 4K resolution in camera, I get all the camcorder functionality I kissed goodbye when started using DSLRs. Headphone jack, level meters, focus peaking, high frame rate at 1080p... the list goes on. I'm new to the micro four thirds world, but I'm really liking it. Panasonic lenses are small and sharp.
Excerpt: This camera rocks and I've been loving it so far. I use it mostly for the 4K video and have not been disappointed at all. The functions and button locations took some slight adjustment to get used to as I was coming from a Canon 5DmII, but it's been a pretty smooth transition. The footage looks very clean all the way up to 1600 ISO and it does surprisingly well in low light. I love the video mode display feature. For the price, you really can't beat it. This thing rocks.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I have been a m43 user since I bought my first GH1 in July 2010. I own two GH1s, one GH3 and now a GH4. There has always been an obvious video quality compromise when I shot with my hacked GH1 and my GH3. The GH3 is an excellent hybrid camera, but the GH4 is a true professional video capture device. I'm completely blown away by how easy it is to capture high IQ video.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Excerpt: This product does so much, so well, that it could be the camera of 2014. Heck, the camera of 2015 as well. Every time I use this camera I'm amazed how far we've come in photography and video in such a short time. Panasonic has created pretty much the ultimate package for the hybrid shooter. Whether you are shooting stills, or Video, this camera delivers.
Pros: Beautiful 4k, Clarity, Color Reproduction, Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Full featured, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Long Battery life, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Excerpt: The video quality is amazing even at 1080p, and the high frame rate, slow motion feature is awesome. It is easy to use if you are used to using a DSLR. I am just learning to use things like peaking and zebras, which are really useful. Also, it is much easier to get good audio. You don't need a pre-amp like a DSLR. Just plug in a good external microphone and adjust the audio levels in camera. So much easier than DSLRs. The quality of the photos is better than my Canon 7D.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time
