Lumix G85 4K Photo

On my visit to Ft. Myers I wanted to test the 4K Photo Mode capability of the Panasonic Lumix G85.  The image shown was captured in 4K photo mode on March 14, 2017. The entire sequence was imported as a video file.  I did not want to select and save a JPEG file in camera. Saving a JPEG is the suggested method for 4K Photos.  The video frames were exported at individual TIFF files with a frame resolution of 3328 by 2496 pixels (an 8Mb file)  this was processed in Capture One ver. 10 and exported as a JPEG for web display.  The camera was mounted with the Leica 100 – 400 mm lens, hand-held using “Dual IS”.  For reference purposes the scene’s exposure triad was ISO 800, f6.3, 1/250 sec.

Aquatic Birds of Florida

Before I say anything, I want to make it perfectly clear that I am not a videographer.  I captured these clips while I was in Florida during the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival, late January 2017.  All these were captured during my photo walks/drives in Black Point Wildlife Drive in Merritt Island.  The primary purpose was to tryout the “In Body Image Stabilization” aka IBIS of the Panasonic Lumix G85 camera body.  The camera was used with the Leica 100 – 400 mm lens at its full extension that is an equivalent of 800 mm (most of the time).  All footage was captured hand-held and in many instances during high winds and rain.  

It is important to note, that all the footage was captured before Panasonic released two major firmware updates, one of the camera and the other for the lens.  What this means is that the Dual IS function was not in effect when these videos were captured.  

I was very impressed with the performance of this camera and lens combination and will be doing a comparison to see the impact of the new firmware when I am at the next conference in St. Augustine in April.
