Zacuto’s First Look: Panasonic Lumix GH4
Panasonic representative, Matt Frazer, visited Zacuto headquarters in Chicago to give us a first look at the Lumix GH4. This latest offering from the Lumix lineup is making headlines as the first-ever (DSLM) digital single-lens mirrorless camera with built-in 4K video recording.
This Zacuto First Look video, also features the Zacuto Marauder run’n’gun rig and DSLR Recoil shoulder mounted rig. According to Matt, “Zacuto has proven to be a great partner to Panasonic and their products are top notch.”
Matt describes the GH4 as packed with all kinds of features to support both photographers and cinematographers alike. Features include a 16.05-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor, image processor capable of capturing high-resolution JPEG and RAW stills, cinematic DCI 4K 4096×2160 video at 24p, a micro four thirds image sensor & lens mount & more.
“The Panasonic GH4 will be my next go-to camera!” – Jens Bogehegn, Zacuto Product Designer
Similar to previous Lumix GH models, the micro 4/3rds GH4 is smaller than a DSLR and and has a robust magnesium alloy body. Panasonic invites “photographers and cinematographers to explore above and beyond” with the new Lumix GH4, and at a price point under $1,700 there’s no reason not to!
GH Z-Finder Pro
The GH Z-Finder Pro is compatible with the Panasonic Lumix GH3 and GH4. This optical viewfinder aids with stability and focus. The GH Z-Finder Pro allows the Panasonic GH3 and GH4 to have the correct form factor for video.
Marauder and Enforcer
The Marauder and Enforcer foldable run’n’gun DSLR rigs are perfect for the filmmaker on the go. These stabilization rigs set-up and break-down in seconds to fit in a camera bag or backpack.
Next Generation Indie Recoil
Next Generation Recoil rigs are designed for optimal balance and comfort when shoulder mounted or on a tripod. With lenses and cameras being similar weights, the balance point is approximately where the lens meets the camera body. In a Recoil rig, the balance point needs to be directly over your shoulder which puts the camera behind you. This requires focus, monitoring and camera controls to be relocated forward, creating a lighter and shorter rig. The lightweight, beautifully balanced Indie Recoil places your camera directly over your shoulder for comfort and accessibility. Add the revolutionary Gratical HD EVF to complete your rig.
