Many of these are multi-award winning.

From the DVI forum: (mods - I couldn't be bothered retyping the list)

I own a Bluray copy of LIKE CRAZY (won Sundance), shot on a 7D, looks great.

Looks like I'll keep banging away on my 60D (=7D look) for a little while longer.

That doesn't even include the many features (and TV shows), that seamlessly cut DSLR footage in with other, more expensively captured footage. They've become sorta "go to" cameras for close interior shots, B-cams, vehicle-mounted cameras, etc.

Iron Man 2 had some Canon 5D Mark II scenes.

I agree - camcorder footage has a synthetic look to it that does seem as real as as still camera video. That was one of the reasons I returned my AX100 to Best Buy for a refund - I knew I wouldn't be fully happy with the camcorder look of the AX100's footage even if I eventually figured out an in-camera setting that fixed it's bland and/or off kilter color problems.

DSLR video only looks good if it is locked down on a tripod, set up perfectly and recording relatively static scenes. If you are recording dynamic, mobile scenes with no time to set up (compose, find focus, exposure, etc etc), a camcorder is a must-have solution. Each type of camera has its place, and a good videographer will use one or the other solution when appropriate and depending on the circumstances.

The 7D was great for video in 2009 when it came out but it's now 2014 and the GH4 is light years ahead of it . Canon is still using the same sensor in 2014 with the new T5, now that is sad. I guess many people buy cameras by sales numbers and not by specs.

A 4K Canon DSLR has already appeared. The Canon 1D C was released a couple of years ago. But not many people are buying it because Canon charges $10,000 for it (it was $12,000(!) until the GH4 came out).

It is also the only Canon DSLR with 1080/60p.

Canon continues their pattern at the high end of overcharging for features that others offer for thousands of dollars less - while, at the low end, re-releasing the same camera over and over. But I can't really fault them - it is a very profitable strategy - they make a lot of money and people keep buying their cameras.

As for me, I'll stick with my $1700 4K GH4 and pocket the $8300 difference instead of sending it to Japan, thank you very much smile.gif

I'm starting to think I had better start hiding chunks of cash somewhere for the eventual unqualified need for 4K in a GH4.

Yes your right ,the 1DC has to come in mention,of course its over priced for for consumer use but if money was no object i would get one,people like different things i dont like tele news footage look ! despite it being HD now and cameras the size of tanks being used , but with more mid size ones showing up i notice.

Can the GH4 do low light video ? eg ISO 6400 without turning all the shadow detail to 'mud', aka the GH2 ?

Why shoot @ ISO 6400 ? this is often needed in the real world without the benefit of controlled lighting.

Eg, this ISO 6400 clip of a parade - I shot 4 days ago. It was very dark ! http://arcoonastudios.zenfolio.com/p386991990/h3875c2f0#h3875c2f0

Please ignore the dodgy panning and focusing, I was away on a trip, and didn't have my good tripod, or my ladder to be able to use my focusing loupe.

Can anyone provide some GH4 ISO 6400 clip/s for comparison ?

The other problem I have with the smaller M43 sensor is finding wide angle glass. I love to use my 8-15mm L Canon lens which gives me a 165deg FOV on a Canon APSC camera.

I am a bit of a wide addict - is there any decent glass for the GH4 that will also give a 165deg FOV, and have L glass image quality ?

Lack of glass seems to be a M43 achillies heel

That is too funny, Canon fanboys bragging about their Canon cameras with 5 year old sensor . Canon is out to lunch compared to Sony and Panasonic .How is Canon in video mode at 409,600 iso ?

The Canon EOS 1D C is how much ? The GH4 is light years better for video than any Canon DSLR.

When it comes to video, the GH4 is in a class of its own. There is nothing currently on the market, or even announced from any manufacturer, that can trump the GH4 when it comes to video in a DSLR / CSC form factor. This is the only camera of its type that can shoot 4K to an internal card, and which also features variable frame rates in HD mode.

It's going to be fun watching for 4K competitive camera/camcorders as well more models from Panasonic themselves.
