    As above what's the best setting for a GH4 to record weddings. Also what's the best lens? I currently own Panasonic 12-35 2.8

    I use GH4 together with 12-35 2.8; a great combination for recording weddings. This combination is my A-cam.
    I always record in 4K (UHD) as I am a one man band and always uses 4 cameras at weddings; 4K recording gives post-zooming without a quality drop as I export to HD.
    My GH4 is pointed towards the couple and my LX100 (my other 4K camera) is pointed towards the priest.
    Sony A7II and Nikon D610 is C- and D-cams (now I soon have OM-D E-M1 which will become my new D-Cam, Nikon retires to E-Cam). I use the HD cams as support as I cannot crop as much from them as the 4K cams. The most important stuff in the wedding is always taken cared of by my 4K cams.

    GH4 settings for me: 25p (I´m in PAL-land), picture profile Cinelike V (if I want to have less done during post) Cinelike D (if I want to do more post processing).
    Rode mic on top of GH4.
