First of all, I can confirm that this memory card performs perfectly recording 4k at 100Mbps. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I3BQJNA/ref=oh_details_o04_s02_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I own a RED camera so have been dealing with 4K footage and working in the format for a couple of years now. I work professionally for one of the big 3 letter networks and have two Emmy statues sitting on my mantle. This camera absolutely blows me away.

Much can be debated about whether the DSLR form factor is suitable for professional video work. Its hard to get stable footage, most lenses are hard to focus with, zooming is difficult to impossible with most lenses, and the camera was designed to take still photos. What is hard to debate is that this is the best 4K camera currently available for travelers and DSLR style shooters.

I've put together a traveling kit that all fits into one backpack that includes the:
GH4
Tripod - 3 legged things "Brian" - Watch some videos on this extremely light and versatile tripod.
Monfrotto MVH500AH Fluid head - Seriously awesome and smooth
Slider - Edlekrone Slider Plus V2 - Medium with Motion module and Target module (waiting for shipment)
Jib - Aviator travel jib - Very compact. Extends 6ft. Haven't tested enough yet to determine worth.
Zacuto Marauder - Very Nice
Zacuto Z-Finder for GH3 - Pairs well with the higher resolution LCD on the GH4.
Olympus 12mm f/2 - Super sharp, no image stabilization
Pana Leica 25mm f/1.4 - Sharp at 2.8 everywhere. Excellent at 1.4. Creamy bokeh. Magical images but no IS.
Pana Leica 45mm f/2.

If you are a video professional, this camera is a no brainer. There is nothing out there that can touch what this camera can do for anywhere near this price. However, I mostly shoot stills so that is the aspect I will be reviewing on this camera. $1700 is a lot to pay for a stills camera and the IQ is not really that big of a step up from the GH3 or E-M1 (Though it has the highest DxOMark score of any m43.) which can be had for around $1000 or $1200 respectively. So why would a stills shooter pay this much for a camera.

The reason for a stills shooter to buy the GH4 and pay the money is for the 4K video. But wait you said you were focusing on stills so why are you talking about 4K video? To answer that question I will provide a brief primer on 4K video.

Current high definition 1080p video has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and is sometimes called 2K video. If you multiply the 1920 x 1080 you get an approximate 2MP image. The name 4K video, while technically correct, can be a little misleading of a name. 4K video is double the horizontal and vertical resolution of 2K and while there are a couple of resolutions for 4K video I am going to use the 3840 x 2160 for this discussion. When you multiply 3840 x 2160 together you get an approximate 8MP image. So another good name for 4K video might be 8MP video. 8MP is the the holy grail of image sizes for families for the following reason. The average pair of eyes can see about 300 dots per inch (dpi) at a normal reading distance. The largest most families like to print pictures of their kids, etc is 8x10. If you want to print an 8 x 10 at 300 dpi you need an image of the following size: (8 x 300) x (10 x 300) which equals 80 x 90000 which equals about a 7.

To understand where I'm coming from I've been a professional photographer for about 25 years, have written five books about photography (all available here on Amazon...) and I've been shooting video on and off for well over a decade. I originally bought a Sony a99 to do video with since it seemed set up to do good video production but the camera is crippled with a poor codec, line skipping and a generally mediocre image quality (in video, the stills are great). Searching for another option I researched the Panasonic GH3 and bought two of them. They've been really great video cameras and I think their image quality, especially from raw files is as good as nearly all APS-C cameras and the Olympus m4:3 cameras. While I like my GH3's and have made money with them in video production the specs on the GH4 were too good to pass up. The camera isn't a giant step up from the GH3 but it's a great refinement. A well done evolution.

The processors in the camera are twice as fast as the ones in the previous generation and that means faster focusing, faster read times and generally better processing while the camera is reading information off the sensor. The camera will shoot 4K video which is twice the resolution overall as the 2K video on the previous generation. I won't be using the full 4k any time soon but the improvements required to handle 4k mean a better image in 2k.

I've had the camera for three days, have shot over 1,000 still images and tested the video in both 2K and 4k and everything about the camera exceeds my expectations. I love having more video controls. There is a master pedestal control that allows you to set black levels. There are two cine profiles that give you footage that's easier to color correct and grade in post processing.
