Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GH4, an exceptional camera for photography. I had the GH3 before this. As a stills only shooter I was on the fence about paying for the upgrade. After reading a few reviews I decided there were enough improvements over the GH3 for photographers, and I ordered one. When I got it I found there were even more improvements then the reviews had mentioned and just the speed alone was a good enough reason, not to mention all the other things Panasonic put into it. I feel like they held nothing back and threw everything they had into this awesome little beast. The GH3 was the best mirrorless camera on the market when it came out and the GH4 just blew it away. Couldn't be happier with the purchase and would buy it over again in a heart beat. If it sounds like I'm gushing, I am. I love this thing and have had more then one person switch after seeing what I can do with this much smaller kit. Panasonic is doing great things with their Lumix division and I look forward to more industry leading innovation in the future. Please Panny, more weather sealed lenses. I live in Micronesia and it can rain just about any time. November 18, 2014
