Hat tip to videographers.co.uk for staying off camera and letting Mark tell us about the camera without interrupting him.
We learn a few things here that go beyond the specs, e.g.:
- There are only 8 pre-production models of the GH4 in all of Eurasia, outside of Japan
- "Face Detection" autofocus now includes "Eye Detection"
- Panasonic seems to have fixed the GH3's SD card door problem
- There is a new 15mm f1.8 in the pipeline and a new, smaller 35-100 constant f2.8 in development
It's a little long, but worth watching all the way through.
If you'd like to have your 4K-capable SD card in hand before your camera arrives, you can get a Kingston 64GB UHS-I Speed Class 3 for $110 or a Panasonic 64GB microP2 Card for $372.
You would only spend the extra money for a microP2 card if you planned to make the GH4 a "B" camera to a Panasonic VariCam or other camera that records to even more expensive full-sized P2 cards. I may invest in microP2 because I'd like to rent the new Panasonic Super 35 VariCam someday - but shooters who plan to stick with the GH4 should get the Kingston (or the new Panasonic Gold Series SDUC when it is released).
