I have just arrived in Kauai. Exhausted but my Nikon adaptor was waiting for me that I ordered off of ebay from china so I HAD to knock off a few shots, as you do.
The Lumix stock lens is great. Takes away a lot of wobble. Has awesome auto focus features and reduces the cmos skew. But it is slow at f4 on the wide end. So I wanted to see how this camera performed with fast lenses in low light.
The camera performed well…it’s not bad in low light. Nowhere near as good as the Canon 5dmk2 but better than just about any video camera that I have used. I wasn’t able to get any high ASA without some lines in the image. Hope this is fixable…
Because the camera has a smaller sensor, sticking the Nikon on more or less doubled the focal length so my 50mm zeiss f1.4 became more like a 100mm…
I wish the codec was much higher than the 17mbps…it makes grading almost impossible and there are some aliasing issues that I haven’t worked out…but don’t forget, this is not a pro camera. This is a consumer camera with some incredible features…it’s not a Canon 5dmk2 killer but it has features that every Canon 5dmk2 users are salivating for. 24p (25p in UK), full manual controls whilst shooting (no need for exposure lock) and amazing ,whilst shooting, autofocus features.
I have done a few literally random shots of stuff and stuck them together. I won’t be putting any more footage on line using this camera for a while as I need to get some sleep and shoot with my Letus Ultimate and EX3, the reason I am here! But there will be some beauty stuff to come I promise!
