looks at the new Panasonic GH4 (not officially called GH4 yet):
…a representative was able to divulge a few details. UHD content can be recorded at 200 Mbps, and output in a full live feed via a mini-HDMI port (thanks to ALL-I Intra mode) to display on a computer or record to a hard drive. Of course, the Micro-Four Thirds shooter can save footage straight to an SDXC card — a UHS Class 3 prototype variant tuned for such a task was on display — though space will run out fairly quickly.
…the camera’s official release in late February, when it’ll arrive with a price tag of $2,000 or less…
Now, 200 Mbps for 4K is the rough equivalent of 50 Mbps for 1080p. However, in an ALL-I intraframe mode, the codec should be about 400 Mbps to match 1080p at 100 Mbps. It is clear that the imagery can’t be as good as shooting RAW, but going by the excellent quality of the Panasonic GH3, I’d say it will prove popular, weather sealing and all.
What do you think? Will it give the BMCC 4K Production Camera a run for its money?
