GH4 Has excellent follow focus performance for sport/action


Mu-43 Regular
I have been testing my new GH4 over the last two weeks mainly with the Pana 35-100mm f2.8 lens. I have been photographing cars and people coming towards and moving away from the camera and last weekend photographed junior indoor basketball. In both situations the GH4 using Burst Mode M, 1 Area AF (NOT Tracking) and JPG capture with a fast card ran at 7 fps and delivered 95% of frames in sharp focus at the active AF area. In addition EVF blackout after each frame is much less than the GH3. Overall the GH4 delivers a big improvement over the GH3 in follow focus on sport/action/moving subjects. You can read more about it at the link on my Camera Ergonomics blog.
Happy reading, Andrew

nibble nibble nibble..... the GH4 is a termite in the pillars that hold the DSLR edifice aloft! :rolleyes:

Unfortunately, the brains of the typical DSLR buyer are made of concrete: impervious to termites.... and reason. ;)
I must be atypical.
I've had a few Kodak and Canon products.
And I have had nearly every Nikon DSLR and AutoFocus lens and many primes as well.

After getting a GH3, I lost my "NAS".
My GH4 is an improvement in every.
