    Adapted or native teleconverter

    as far as I understand the m/43 teleconvertors are designed to be used only with a very select range of m43 lenses. I have the mc14 which can be used only with the 300 and 40-150 lenses K

    Basic Olympus Video Settings?

    Loren Good point on the 1/48th. I didn’t spot that option. I suspect the custom modes are designed primarily for stills set ups. Some of the video features seem to be tricky to incorporate. The purpose of my c2 confit was as you said for those times where I would use the footage as shot...

    Basic Olympus Video Settings?

    I am currently experimenting with a setup that uses the c1,c2,c3 setting on the mode dial I have them set up as follows C1 - 4K @ 24fps, highest bitrate, manual exposure 1/50 @ f4, iso 200, flat or log 400 profile C2 - same as C1 except 1080p C3 - again HD but at 60fps and 1/120 shutter speed...

    Traveling to Tokyo, Japan - any tips?

    jonathan you are a brave man... I have only done one trip to Tokyo for a week about 6 or 7 years ago... as a solo adult male and it was all a bit overwhelming. I stayed in the Shinjuku area.

    A lot depends on your expectations maybe your 17 buck device will satisfy your initial needs.. I have no idea what you are intending to record, voice, ambient or whatever. Recording sound is a whole dark art in its self the downsides I see of the 17 buck device are 1) Unknown Analog to...

    Help me build a video kit

    As HD is only 2 megapixels per frame (1920x1080) and 4K is 8 megapixels a frame, and your camera is capturing at 16-20 megapixels, there is no such thing as a 1080 or 4K sensor. The key metric to video quality is the bitrate, as the lower the bit rate the more the data has been compressed...

    Help me build a video kit

    There is a big overhead in file sizes when it comes to 4K Looking at the GX9 manual, 4K at 30fps has a bitrate of 100Mbps Thats the rate at which the data is being written to the card Divide that by 8 to convert bits to bytes and you get 12.5 MBs multiply that by 60 and you get 750 MB per...

    Issue with shutter speed/frame rate on Gx85 footage

    Not familiar with the Lumix cameras.. but just one thought might be to check what picture profiles you are shooting at. Certainly on Olympus cameras, these, by default can have Contrast and Saturation settings, that while are good for sharp vibrant stills, may be at odds with that film look...

    Tommy said To fill in the gaps (and I apologize for not providing more info), but 1. I am a complete newbie to these higher-end cameras High end or low end... you are working within the 4/3 sensor, and all the advantages/disadvantages associated with the format 2. I am definitely interested...

    Which lens? Total beginner here.

    You assume the OP requires a shallow DOF Its not obvious that thats what the OP requires We really need more input from the OP about what they are trying to achieve K

    Which lens? Total beginner here.

    We are literally shooting in the dark here, as we have little background from the OP. We have very little info on what it is he is try to achieve and what his expectations are We have no idea what his skill/experience levels are at We have no idea on his budget, and whether he has budgeted...

    Which lens? Total beginner here.

    Really don't think the idea of a medium to long telephoto zoom really fits the bill for shooting interviews indoors, or indeed much in terms of video work K

    Which lens? Total beginner here.

    I suspect that GH4's can probably picked up quite cheaply these days, as the GH5 has been out for a few years K
  37. kevinparis

    Which lens? Total beginner here.

    I am assuming because you mention interviews, that you are using your GH4 primarily for video. as your shutter speed will be 1/50 or 1/60, depending on if you are shooting 24/25 or 30 fps, and you seem to be on a budget, I would think that you don't need a particularly fast lens, unless you are...

    The Micro Four ThirdsTriad

    I have experience in working in marketing for a major company, and I can recognise the regurgitation of selling points. The OP may be a great photographer.. but he is, on the strength of his campaign here, not worth his 750 dollars he got from panasonic as a brand ambasador I personally know...

    Are you still using your 14mm f2.5?

    As always a lot is dependant on each photographers expectations and of their intended outcome Personally I have little interest in shooting landscape, have little interest in the finer details of resolution. All I seek are capturing the images that satisfy my particular tastes K

    Are you still using your 14mm f2.5?

    personally hate the shooting experience with an iphone... it doesn't suit my way of shooting... its way too fiddly I had the 14 before i got the 17, and it has only been in the last couple of years that I started using the 14 again. Its not a lens I would ever get rid of... its a perfect...

    Post processing help

    Is My Reasoning To Invest in The Olympus 17mm f1.8 Sound? (Insight into Prime Lens Strategy).
