Full disclosure: Bloom has done film work for both Canon AND Panasonic specifically around their HDSLR products.
No matter: the review itself is measured with one particularly interesting twist: you get the sense (OK, maybe I’m projecting here) that he almost wishes the GH4 weren’t as groundbreaking as he himself says it is.
Canon, are you listening?
He’s clear that he prefers the imagery coming out of the 1DC (at seven times the price of the GH4!); he’s clear that the GH4 is not the “low light monster” that the Sony A7s is (true enough, according to DxOMark results); yet he’s equally clear that the GH4 is a breakthrough value proposition for 4K.

Video review of the Panasonic GH4
Finally! After literally weeks of work filming and testing out the camera in countless places and around a week of solid editing it’s here! Almost 40 minutes of my GH4 review.
Thanks to www.holdan.co.uk for help getting this review started! They distribute many pro video products in the UK including Panasonic and Blackmagic cameras.
All shots apart from the ones of the camera itself shot on the GH4.
