Thanks Rodney for the wonderful presentation.

But was kinda surprised and disappointed that no representatives for Panasonic make an effort to turn up and give their support to Rodney ...

Cheers

I regret not able to attend Rodney's presentation. Does anyone know whether the gx8 is available in Singapore?
If yes, where can I get one?

Hi pleong,

The best person to answer this is Panasonic.

But they couldn't be bothered to turn up to give support to Rodney.

In any case, according to Digital Life, issue dated 26-Aug, the GX8 will be available in Singapore next month at $1,699 with the 14-42 II lens.

Hope that help.

Cheers

Big thanks to everyone who turned up for the review. Special acknowledgement to Matthew for troubleshooting and Panasonic Singpore for providing the review set and this rare opportunity. My sincere apologies for the LIVE feed malfunction. Will do better next time.

Thanks Rodney.
Oh well, gotta wait till end of this month (Sept) for it then.
Hope that Panny can bundle with other lens too.
I am hoping to get GX8 with 12-35 lens.

I would also like to add a little bit about the difference between the GH4 and GX7 in terms of their video capabilities.

For the 4K video, the GX7 can record in 3840 x 2160 in 25p.

Although the 4K video in GH4 can record 4096 x 2160 in 25p, this is only when you use 24 Hz. So, if we use 50Hz, we can only record 4K in 3840 x 2160 in 25p.

Please note that both cannot record 4K in 50p. 4K recording only available in 25p.

Also both record 4K in 100Mbps. In GH4, although it claims that it can do 200Mps, this is only when you set it to 1920 x 1080. 4K in GH4 cannot record in 200Mbps.

In GH4, we can do slow-mo by recording up 96p. Again, this is only possible in 1920 x 1080. The GH4 cannot record 96p in 4K. Also, when in slow-mo 96p, the auto-focus is not applicable. So in GH4 the slow mo 96p is only available in manual focus.

Just wondering, anyone set their frequency to 24Hz ?

Hope that helps.

Thanks
