I'm getting used to the Lumix Leica 100-400 on a GX8. Shooting 4K has some additional crop factor effects and I get more than a 1000mm, 35mm equivalent. On a tripod, I'm liking the results when I...

This is, generally, a consumer camera forum. Most that post here find that better "consumer" cameras make better videos. Why? Because the need for broadcast or cinema workflows is not necessary. ...

Thanks Mark. That confirms the actions of the firmware in the GX8. It is the same.

Further reading this morning is explaining that the crop factor of the GX8 is more than the G7 or GH4. The...

Don't forget to try the iA button. You may be surprised at the results! This can be especially true when you're in changing conditions and making camera setting adjustments are difficult.

The latest version of Lightroom lists both the actual and a "35mm equivalent" in the metadata section. With my GX8 and Lumix/Leica 100-400, it says the 35mm equivalent is 1264 when the lens is at...

I think I'm getting more than that. It is like I can't turn off the EX TELE CONV in 4K. I'm not sure yet how to measure it or provide an example. I remain confused, but am working on it!

Mark,

I've been puzzled by the "crop factor" of my GX8. Using a 14-140, I think I should be able to shoot 4K with a 28mm equivalent. I can with stills or 1080p, but not with 4K. With 4K it is a...

Mark is right when the goal is cinematic perfection of image quality, color, focus, etc. Mark is always trying to take advantage of the very best his camera can do at video quality. If the goal is...

FWIW, the GX8 with Leica 100-400 is noticeably better at autofocus than the GX7 with Lumix 100-300. (Bless my loving DW for the surprise upgrade!)

I'm going to guess that you are going to have to find a way to shoot through the same kind of glass used in a welders helmet. The camera will try to record what the eye can see. Then, you will have...

My vote, based on experience with other Panasonic cameras and camcorders, is the HC-V250.

Ken,

I'm doing exactly that! I'm using ProDad Mercalli 3.0 on clips from my new wildlife setup.

I'm in the woods in Jasper, AB. The bears and moose are in hiding. There are some cute...

Except for for confusion, I have no regrets. I was zeroed in on a weather sealed camera and long lens with a mic input that does 4K. I got that and am thrilled. My "shooting plan" is to carry the...

"IBIS+OIS+EIS+WS stabilization"

A few weeks ago I bought the ProDad Mercalli 3.0 stand alone stabilizer. With limited use so far, I'm finding that it works well on some clips. Other clips not so...

It may be confusion on my part with settings, but the GX8 seems to want to shoot with EX TELE CONV on. Lightroom reports that the 35mm equivalent at 400 is 1264mm! Of course I'm surprised, but am...

I think I've figured out that the "Dual I.S." is not available for 4K shooting on the GX8.

My first clue was that the field of view is narrower when set up for 4K. The second clue was the...

The IS is impressing me. And, for reasons I've not yet figured out, the GX8 shoots 4K video with a boost. The equivalent is closer to 1250mm!

However, I'm not finding the 5 axis stabilization...

For lower light, you might add the Panasonic LX100 to your list. It's weak spot is telephoto reach at only 75mm equivalent.
