    Hi folks,

    I took this video of an artist (or artisan?) in Murano making a glass horse. It was pretty cool to watch it live. I hope you enjoy it:



    I don't do video too often, but I couldn't pass up this opportunity to put the GH4 thru its paces a bit. :)

    Great video @WilburNJ@WilburNJ ! Did you shoot this at 96fps, or 60fps and slow it down in post?

    I own two GH4's, and absolutely love them! The handling and feature sets are amazing, image quality is excellent IMO, and the video one is able to get out of the camera is unreal.

    Here's a video a shot a few weeks ago at a local auto-x, and it was one of my first times really shooting video. I used a PL15mm, PL25mm, and P42.5. I recently picked up some Canon FD glass along with a focal reducer to give me some different FoV and faster speeds. I really enjoy doing video, and definitely find it adds something "more" than photography does (but it is more work IMO).

    It's pretty cool to watch it in slo-mo video, too! Excellent video.

    Murano is wonderful, isn't it?

    ijm, I used the native slo-mo function (96fps). I don't have the software or the skill to do any video postproduction work. :)

    flamingfish, yes, Murano was great, and so was Venice generally. Our 5 nights in Venice was at the tail end of our Italy vacation with the extended family. Lots of great experiences, with ample opportunity to use my gear!! :)

    Wow, your video is fantastic. I need to find the time to learn how to do post production on videos. You've inspired me!

    Editing the video is easier than you would think. That was all done in iMovie on a MacBook Pro, but you could easily do the same thing in Premiere Elements.

    I really do love the GH4 though, it's a fantastic camera for shooting stills or video. There are only two features that I wish the GH4 had, IBIS, and 4K 60p to slow it down in post. Other than that, it's a flawless camera!

    60p is on cameras in North America and Japan, while 50p is PAL. 60p when slowed down to 24fps gives you a 40% slow-mo, while 50p slowed down to 24fps gives you 48% slow-mo.

    You're not missing anything, just have a camera from a different region.
