Expert Review

A smaller Micro Four Thirds (MFT) sensor and a DSLR look make the GH4 portable and approachable with a design made for anyone to step in and take control. The camera shoots up to 4K video internally which bests some of the other major 4K players on the market. The camera has the ability to hook up to an external recorder via a micro HDMI port enabling 10-bit 4:2:2 recording, giving a much less compressed image than the internally recorded AVCHD files. The details (Especially edges) are sharp but colors and skin tones are soft creating a very pleasing image. To my eye, it handles highlights well and does fine in low light, although MFT cameras tend to be worse in low light and this unit is no exception. For those looking to do slow motion, downscale to 1080p and users can record up to 96 fps. The body seems quite durable, and it’s labeled as weather-sealed (Although I haven't actually tested this claim out). Additionally, the swivel 3" OLED viewfinder makes shooting at odd angles easier.

In the end, the camera falls into some of the limitations of similar cameras in this range like rolling shutter, but it is built for the professional user and is one of the best for the money.Rating: 4.5/5
