Panasonic GH5s and Sennheiser G4 500 series – my new vlogging and video setup

Impressive codec, rotating / front facing LCD, great face detection, fantastic low light performance, and no more syncing audio in post! This seems like the setup for me. In this video, I’ll explain my setup, show how to make a LUT in Davinci Resolve and then use it in the Panasonic GH5s, and test the […]

35mm Mirrorless Lens Shootout – Sony, Fuji, Zeiss, and Olympus – Which is the best 35mm lens?

In this video, I’ll be doing a shootout of 9 different mirrorless lenses with a 35mm (or equivalent focal length). The goal is to determine which one has the nicest rendering. I test for up close shots which I really like doing, bokeh quality, and sharpness/detail from a distance. https://youtu.be/M8vNsDi_atA Here’s the following lenses and […]

UW Cherry Blossoms – Panasonic G9 and 8-18mm f/2.8-4 Outing

The University of Washington in Seattle is known far and wide for their cherry blossoms on campus. This was the first time that we ever had a chance to go up and see them first hand. It was crazy weather! Snow, rain, sunshine, we had it all – except blue skies. Even though I have […]

Shot in the Cinelike D profile and slightly graded in DaVinci Resolve. Audio hasn’t been altered from what […]

Panasonic G9 – Review

Review Summary: This Panasonic G9 is the best Micro 4/3 camera ever! It’s so good when matched with Olympus f/1.2 primes that it gives the Sony a6500, Fuji X-T2, and Canon 5D Mark IV a run for the money.

Using an Olympus 17mm f/1.8 on a Panasonic GX8

Using an Olympus 17mm f/1.8 on a Panasonic GX8 You’ll probably laugh, but I’ve actually bought and sold the Olympus 17mm f/1.8 a few times in the past. Why? Well, I’ve though about moving away from Micro 4/3 cameras, or that I would have that focal length covered in other lenses, or… Still, I keep […]
