Shane Hurlbut Tests Out the Panasonic GH4

Publish date:

Cinematographer Shane Hurlbut recently put the Panasonic GH4 through its paces and blogs about the experience (through his assistant David Weldon).

They write, "After our extensive testing of the Panasonic GH4, we have some thoughts on the platform. The image that this camera creates looks and feels more like a broadcast video camera than it does a cinema camera. Where this camera felt most like it was showing us a video look is in the night ISO test. Our model almost appeared to be jumping off the screen, as if she were standing in front of a green screen wall. There was very little falloff on the edges of her body, so she ultimately looked extremely sharp, where the background fell way out of focus."
