The new Panasonic Lumix GH4 starts out shooting in true 4K DCI at 24 fps, Ultra HD up to 30 fps or Full HD up to 60 fps. It can record without time limit in AVCHD and AVCHD Progressive formats, standard but limited, but also in MOV format, which in this case allows access to encoding rates of 200 Mb / s in ALL-I or 100 Mb / s in IPB, heavy but better suited to post-production. You can also use an external recorder through the HDMI 4: 2: 2 8 bit output. Timecode and test charts are also part of the game.
For the actual shooting, the GH4 relies on a new 4/3 inch 16 million pixel Live MOS sensor, faster to prevent the rolling shutter effect, on a new pass filter. low, improving sharpness without causing moiré, as well as a new quad-core processor providing selective noise and edge processing to achieve ISO 25. Autofocus can be done in 600s and track a face or even an eye.
