Everything You Need to Know About the Panasonic GH4

Steve and Jens from Zacuto have put together a fantastic video interview with Panasonic representative, Matt Frazer sharing tons of info on the new Panasonic GH4.

I am VERY interested in this camera so all this information was gold. Watch the video and let me know what you think about this camera. I personally might consider replacing my Canon bodies with Panasonic GH4’s depending on a few details. Looking forward to reviewing the camera when it comes out.

Shape And Zacuto Hot Shoe Top Handles Review

I really like top handles. Not only do they make getting lower shots much easier, but they also let me move my camera package around set with ease. Unfortunately, they can be fairly expensive and difficult to remove from your camera. That is where hot shoe top handles come it.

Zacuto EVF is Out and I Eat My Words

I’ve had the chance to briefly check out the new Zacuto EVF and, well its awesome. Some of you will remember my somewhat harsh criticisms when it was first announced. Oh how the tables have turned since then. Zacuto has come out will a killer product on time, and Redrock Micro has done nothing more than make a fool of themselves. I’ll be surprised if they even get their remote follow focus out as soon as they stated.

I hope to get my hands on the Z-Finder EVF to do a review for you guys, but in the meantime, check out Nino’s great review.

EVF Updates

So its been awhile since RedRock Micro announced their MicroEVF and Zacuto showcased their ideas for the Z-FinderEVF. Since then there have been some changes in specs, information, pricing, etc. The main changes being Zacuto adding mounting options, and Redrock adding a loupe through HDMI support (copycat?). Here are some videos from both manufacturers updating us on EVF info.
