We Shoot With Panasonic GH Cameras

The new Panasonic GH4 has been announced and it shoots in 4K. All three of our feature films have been shot on the Panasonic GH cameras. The first was Men of La Mancha shot on the very first DSLR Hybrid for video, the Panasonic GH1. I was one of the first people in the US to get the camera as a friend in Canada sent it to me (they got it first). Then The Wild West of Namibia was shot on the Panasonic GH2. Now our third film soon to be released, The Wild Coast was shot on the Panasonic GH3. The GH3 is an amazing camera. The image is superb. The GH3 has been out only one year now and Panasonic launches the GH4 that doubles the resolution to 4K. I am very happy to have stayed with Panasonic all these years (even in the face of jeering by full frame Canon types). This new 4K camera is simply outstanding. Going to save my pennies so our fourth film, or charity videos, can be shot on this camera. Here is a video shot in the Yucatan with the camera. Even viewing on a standard 1080p monitor you can immediately tell how crisp and simply amazing the color and resolution is.

Side note: YouTube now streams in 4K! Totally under the radar, all the news is when will Netflix stream in 4K (to some households with the House of Cards series) but here YouTube already offering it. Make sure to adjust settings in the player to view full 4K.
