50mbps 1080P60 right out of the box...not waiting for a hack.
I'm not going to use a remote. It has built-in stills timelapse (very flexible) and for video, I always just let 'er rip.
Just a comparison I been testing with a Sony Nex 6, I had a GH2 not any more, when I look at GH2 footage it is just so more nicer like sharper with more detail so the GH3 couple with a quality lens has to be even better I hope the stability of the Panasonic 12-35/2.8 lens or other lens can compete with the Sony Boss
We use the gh2 and the gh3 (and sometimes the fs700) and we are big fans of the gh3 1080/50 (Europe) setting! Before we shot everything in 720/50 with the gh2.
All aerials in this video was shot with the gh3 the rest with RED epic/scarlet.
Lens suggestions for the Panasonic GH3?
I'm pretty happy with the Panasonic 12-35 OIS lens. The only issue I had in the beginning was the zoom creeping out when the camera was pointing down, but that's been solved with a small piece of gaffer's tape. I use a 3-stop ND filter on it, and I just ordered a 6-stop ND, too. Going to experiment a bit with which is better.
I'm also considering the Panasonic 7-14, as I'd really like to be able to go very, very wide, and the 12-35 (24mm equivalent) is not quite wide enough for some of my applications. I fly with the Canon 17-40 on my 5D Mark III, and I really like that lens. Of course, that's quite a bit heavier than the GH3, and I really prefer the GH3's video quality, especially the 60P framerate..
Steve whats the crop factor on the 4/3 sensor? I'm finding the 7D with the 24mm lens is quite not wide enough for some of my aerial stills. It seems like I have to go up 100-110 meters high a lot. I'm seriously considering the 6D and if Canon brings out the holy grail I'll just ebay it.
Thanks Steve! any thoughts on this lens? Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 12mm f/2.0
The crop factor for M4/3 is 2X, so that makes my 12-35 the equivalent of 24-70. Now, that said, the M43 format is 4:3 aspect ratio, and of course most of us like to shoot 16:9, so I'm not sure if that impacts the crop factor. Reading the interwebs seems to imply that 4:3, 3:2, and 16:9 crop factors are identical.
Steve, I'd like to know your results with the 7-14 if you pulled the trigger on it. I'd def consider getting it if you're happy with it!
Still just flying with the 12-35.
Steve - have you tried the 6-stop ND filter? Thoughts? Also, do you always fly with the 3-stop on?
Drew, during the day, I typically always use the 3-stop to maintain a 125 shutter speed and around a 10 aperture. Very rarely have I had to use the 6-stop. Makes a HUGE difference in different quality having the ND filters.
Thanks Kristian, I figured the 6-stop might not be necessary... I'll do some tests with it and see what we come up with.
I use the 3 stop and 6 stop all the time depending on the light. The sweet spot of the 12-35 lens is about f5.6 or so. f10 is not as sharp in my experience. And I like to shoot at 24P and leave the shutter at 1/50. I do go to 1/125 if I'm shooting 60P.
Wow, that looks amazing, what gimbal are you running? Any post in that video?
Looks like an S800 and Zenmuse. Gorgeous!!
That looks like the hot ticket , I have tried the alexmos way but never got that type of quality ,
