    I've had a GH4 with Vlog for the past week. Got to say that I've really enjoyed the flat profile. From what I can tell it is giving me an increase of 2 stops Dynamic Range. I'm still trying to find the perfect base LUT for it, but so far my favorite has been the Amira LUT that is in Premiere Pro CC.

    Would love to have a thread for the GH4 users to post VLOG processing tips for when vlog finally gets released.

    Hello Duane,

    When do you think vlog is coming? i have stopped using gh4 because it is hard to match with A camera. The colors on GH4 is just hard to edit.

    Hey Ozkan,

    Unfortunately Im not allowed say. But I can say that if I have it, it shouldn't be too long as I'm pretty low on the proverbial list of people to try it pre-release.

    So since this got announced, has anyone else had a chance to try it? Trying to rationalize the $99 upgrade fee.

    You've mastered the art of the oblique reply, Duane! I laughed out loud! :)

    Yes, start working in the corporate world with players like Panasonic and you learn to provide answers that don't actually answer anything. ;)

    Here is an album of a couple of screen grabs. I shot 4k all day for 4 days straight using the v-log. These screen grabs are not graded, just simply with the Lut applied and not applied.

    Hmm. That link appears to be non-functional Duane.

    That was odd. Changed the page layout, got a new link, now it works.

    Pretty impressive stuff. Seems like a straightforward value proposition to upgrade a GH4 this way.
    Has Panasonic started delivering this to paying customers yet?

    I believe they ship on Monday in the US and slightly delayed from that date in varying other Countries. For example Canada will be shipping closer to the 21st.

    I am considering the GH4 or the GH4R. Apart from being able to record more than 30min why should I choose the GH4R above an upgraded GH4? The price difference in Norway between the two is close to $800.

    As a North American I haven't really paid too much attention to the difference between the two models. With that said, I think I remember that the only two differences is the unlimited recording as well as Vlog. If you don't need either, don't buy the GH4R.

    Thanks. I will go to Halifax Canada next week. If I get the time I will get a North American GH4, given that it can do PAL recording.
