GH2 720p upscaling: great high quality affordable plugin http://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/16160/gh2-720p-upscaling-great-high-quality-affordable-plugin Sat, 10 Dec 2016 17:33:50 -0700 apefos 16160@/talks/discussions For the low budget people who are using GH2 these days:

GPUresize is a plugin for Premiere and After Effects. It has a new feature called stairstep upscaling. This feature combined with the built in Kaiser upscaling algorithm deliver amazing results for upscaling 720p to 1080p. The annoying aliasing almost disapears.

http://www.aescripts.com/gpuresize/

Test the trial version with this footage to see the results (slow the footage to 24p/25p/30p and compare the upscaling render without and with GPUresize kaiser+stairstep):

Hack the Panasonic GH5 to 8K HDR http://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/17732/hack-the-panasonic-gh5-to-8k-hdr Tue, 12 Sep 2017 13:26:09 -0600 NickBen 17732@/talks/discussions GH5 was already intended/designed to be an "8K" HDR anamorphic capable camera with the latest firmware according to Mat Frazer of Panasonic!

Go to 9:27 of the following video:

His reasoning for not implementing this mode in firmware was due to YouTube not support 8K HDR yet... Maybe we could start a campaign to get Panasonic to release the full camera capabilities...

Now, if VK & personal-view subscribers can unlock the sleeping 8K HDR mode with a Hack and settings for Resolve & Premiere Pro, I think we'd garner more donations again...

GH4 Profile Recommendations to Shot Match With ARRI Alexa http://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/12145/gh4-profile-recommendations-to-shot-match-with-arri-alexa Sat, 10 Jan 2015 10:49:05 -0700 discomandavis 12145@/talks/discussions Just got contracted to reshoot a couple shots for a feature that was shot mostly on an Alexa. Most shots were night shots, with snow. Has anybody here mixed GH4 with Alexa successfully? Settings Color profile recommendations would be awesome so I can test them out before the shoot. Thanks!

Just so nobody chimes in and says "rent an Alexa" or anything like that, the producer has given literally almost no budget for this, so renting any other camera is not an option.

GH5 froze during recording, resulting in unreadable mdt file http://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/16854/gh5-froze-during-recording-resulting-in-unreadable-mdt-file Thu, 04 May 2017 12:30:06 -0600 SuperTinyMagnet 16854@/talks/discussions Hey folks! I need help repairing a video file. The other day during a professional shoot, my new GH5 froze up when I hit the record button to stop recording at the end of a 23-minute (!!!) interview take. Even after flipping the power-off switch, the camera stayed on and frozen. I had to remove the battery pack. Now I have an unreadable/unfinished .mdt file that can't be read or played back. Has anyone run into this before?

I'm also wondering how I can prevent this from happening again. I was shooting 4K 10-bit 23.976fps using a Lexar U3 150 mb/s SD card with 128GB of storage (I had used 122gb by the end of the take, and had a few gigs to spare.) I was also using a 3rd party battery by Newmowa, but it had plenty of charge remaining.

Thanks for reading! Any leads at all would be hugely appreciated.

Samples and videos


4K crop calculations:

Stills horizontal resolution - 4608
Cinema 4K horizontal resolution - 4096
4K horizontal resolution - 3840

This makes crop:

  • Cinema 4K - 1,125x
  • 4K - 1,2x

of course, it is additional crop (to 2x typical for m43), so you must multiple two if you need to know relative FF crop.

Control GH5 Shutter Speed Remotely while recording? http://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/17540/control-gh5-shutter-speed-remotely-while-recording Wed, 16 Aug 2017 10:05:37 -0600 v10tdi 17540@/talks/discussions I'm prepping for a scene where I will need to adjust shutter speed (SS) while recording in 6K Photo mode. I can do this manually with the dial, but I don't seem to be able to do this with the Panasonic Image App. When using the Panasonic Image app, I must stop recording, change shutter speed, then begin recording. Is that right?

Anyone know of any LANC-type remote controllers that might control SS while recording 6K photo for the GH5?

Maybe someone here uses the GH4 for filmmaking and wants to use their iPhone as a wireless monitor. In that case you're like me, but lucky enough I'm a developer ... so I just wanted to let people know that I'm working on a viewfinder app just like that.

It's still a prototype for now, but if you're interested in following the development I suggest following this topic.

I come to the point as I register in 24 fps with flow motion V2 exactly i would like to check the shutter speed on my GH2 to set it to 1/50, maybe it is already set to 1/50 I do not know but i would like to check, the problem is I do not know how to do it, I have the instruction booklet and also the pdf manual downloaded from the internet yet i can not understand how to do it, i am a pivello and i do not know this camera would anyone know how to step by step how to do it?

Two of them will be shooting video while the third will be shooting high speed 6K photo mode (for capturing a fast event). Is there a way to easily start and stop the two video GH5 setups remotely and simultaneously? This would be from 20-30 feet away from the cameras. Even better, I'd love to do this with all three setups, each with their own parameters dialed in ahead of each event.

Is a network setup possible? Can it be done with extended wired remotes?

  • November 28th release

Panasonic is introducing a second advanced compact camera, the FZ2500. This camera utilizes the same 20.1MP 1" MOS sensor as the LX10, but optimizes video performance with the inclusion of DCI 4K video recording and a true 24 fps frame rate, in addition to more conventional UHD 4K and Full HD recording modes. Also benefitting videographers, this camera includes Panasonic's CINELIKE D and CINELIKE V picture profiles for better grading capabilities, and V-Log L can be added via an optional upgrade. Additionally, high bit rate recording up to 200 Mbps is supported in both MP4 and MOV formats; video can be output over HDMI with a 4:2:2 10-bit signal; there is no recording duration limit; and a built-in ND filter can be used for enhanced control over exposure settings while recording.

More than just a video-optimized camera, however, the FZ2500 also sports a slew of specs for stills and movie users, such as a 50 fps continuous shooting rate with an electronic shutter, or 12 fps with a mechanical shutter, and an expanded sensitivity range of up to ISO 25600 for working in dim light. The built-in 20x Leica DC Vario-Elmarit f/2.8-4.5 lens covers a 24-480mm equivalent focal-length range, and 5-axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ controls the effects of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. A free-angle 3.0" 1.04m-dot LCD touchscreen permits intuitive control and viewing ease from a variety of working positions, and a 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder is also available. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi also supports wireless image sharing and remote camera control.

gh5 raw issue http://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/17356/gh5-raw-issue Mon, 17 Jul 2017 07:12:46 -0600 sebolla 17356@/talks/discussions hi,i was trying some timelapse in raw with long exposure and i had a lot of red white green dots on the image so i tried to test the camera in my room to see if the proble persist....well the shoot has been taken at f4 iso 320 6" sec exposure everything manual noise reduction turned off raw plus jpeg... the jpeg came out just fine with a few red dots almost invisible.... The raw file which i converted with lightroom and silkypix(the official panasonic raw developer) have hundreds of red green white dots mostly in the shadows area...to make it a bit clear i brought up the exposure by one stop... here are the 2 images... i don't know if i have a faulty camera,if someone could replicate a long exposure shot it would be really appreciated....thanxx

Help! My GH3 won't turn on anymore... http://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/12353/help-my-gh3-wont-turn-on-anymore... Tue, 10 Feb 2015 05:10:50 -0700 Stab 12353@/talks/discussions Hi guys,

My GH3 won't turn on anymore. I have 3 batteries and I've used all of them. When I press the on/off switch nothing happens. No light comes on, just 'dead'. I've also tried removing the lens and SD card but makes no difference.

I bought i a little over 2 years ago so I guess waranty is out of the question.

Any thoughts, solutions that I could try myself? And an important bonus question: Could this have been caused by inserting a cheaper off-brand (OTB) battery? This never happened before and it seems to have happened after I first inserted a replacement battery. It has the same 'name' (DMW-BLF19E) as the original batteries but uses 7.4v instead of 7.2v and 11.84Wh instead of 14Wh...

Could that have fried the insides of the camera? Otherwise it would have just happened out of nowhere...

Thanks!

Importing GH4 Mini and Effect pictures http://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/17294/importing-gh4-mini-and-effect-pictures Tue, 04 Jul 2017 09:27:58 -0600 Badilla 17294@/talks/discussions Hi! When taking pictures on filter mode ("miniuature","old days" etc) I can't find the way to import the pics with the effect to my mac. Previosly I did find the pictures when inserting the sd card directly in my mac laptop, but now the pics (in RAW format) they look without the filter itself. Is the right file but seems that the effect is lost in between? I know it worked fine when I bought the camera so I suspect is a software upgrade thing? Thanks

Gx85 broken from removing battery while still power on http://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/17187/gx85-broken-from-removing-battery-while-still-power-on Mon, 19 Jun 2017 10:05:43 -0600 Lordcooler 17187@/talks/discussions So I read in the manual to never remove the memory card or battery from the gx85 with out first turning the power off. Sure enough in the heat of the moment I removed the battery before turning it off and sure enough now the camera is pretty much a brick.

Anyone know of a fix for this besides sending it to Panasonic and paying a arm and leg to get it fixed?

There is no factory reset for the os would trying to download previous firmware maybe fix it?
