DMC-GH4-YAGH is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent professional 4K video and YAGH I am a professional audio and video producer mainly working with location video and audio recordings. As soon as I got the GH4 with YAGH, I immediately started testing the low light capabilities. The low light performance with a Tokina 11-16mm 2.8 Canon lens with standard EOS to MFT adapter was ok in my dimly lit studio. No where near the Sony a7s but it was not surprising. It will most likely look better with a speedbooster but I didn't have one to test it. The next day, I took it to a well lit stage with a large percussion concert and using the Cine D profile, I was able to grab some amazing video that held the highlights very well. The 4K video looks really amazing. I didn't get to use the GH4 side by side with my Sont AX100, but I would say the GH4 appears to have a little more lattitude than the AX100 when shooting scene with high contrast stage lighting. The YAGH has not seen much use. I had it on the body for all 3 location shoots so far and found the 4 pin XLR power to be quite handy. I already owned an Aspen power supply so I was able to take advantage of the professional power plug and not rely on battery power. Initially I couldn't get sound into the XLR jacks on the YAGH. It's not simply plug and play like a professional camcorder. There is a menu you need to dive into in movie mode to change the input settings on the YAGH interface. Once I got it to work, I attached a pair of Neuamnn KM184 microphones to it and tested piano, it was an amazing sound with non existent noise. Very nice overall!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
