New GH4 video test roundup

Quality difference there is between a GH4 4K and GX7 AVCHD video at Vimeo (Click here). But it would have been more useful to compare it on the same subject :(
Panasonic GH4: Fun with VFR; Slow/Fast-Mo in Shibuya, Tokyo (by Akihabara on Youtube).

Andrew:We got hands on with a gh4 for a few hours and shot this comparison video with all the cameras we could wrangle (gh3, gh4, 7d, 5d3, c100):

Then, for fun, i took 2 of the 4k locked-down static shots and did pan and scan in a SD timeline to see how much reframing I could do on a 4k image:

Chris:celebration of 5 years of micro four thirds. Okay, it’s s a shameless plug for my blog. http://www.chrispattison.co.uk/a-bakers-dozen-13-images-taken-with-13-micro-four-thirds-cameras/

David: I have penned what will likely be my last blog/review of Oly gear for a while. The 12~40/2.8 PRO zoom gets magnificent reviews. I bought one and over-all, the
reviews are warranted. But the lens suffers from significant “Moustache” distortion. I have a review of the problem, and it’s cure, along with my other six Olympus reviews, at: http://www.FURnFEATHER.net/Reviews/ReviewIndex.html

Eric: This isn’t a rumor — but I’ve posted a couple of reviews lately on my blog that 4/3 Rumors readers should find interesting. A comparison of wide-zoom lenses:

Gnat:No rumor here, just a Panasonic GM1 impressions post blog as a bike touring and carry everywhere camera system. https://olyallthetime.squarespace.com/blog/2014/4/13/panasonic-gm1-impressions Paired with a Panny 14mm & 20mm and a the spectacular Oly 45mm it is really a super lightweight, compact and capable camera system.

What a huge surprise! The brand new and world’s first “cheap” 4K mirrorless system Panasonic GH4 camera is now in Stock and shipping at Samys on eBay (Click here to grab one!). As far as I know this is the worldwide first shipment of the camera and I am surprised USA got the Stock before the Japanese stores! Only a limited quantity is in Stock. And it’s not a bogus claim. They sent me a picture to prove it:
