Panasonic has been quiet about the final price of their new GH4 since making the promise that it would be under $2000. Well, keeping to their word, it appears that the price of the GH4 will be $1,699 for the body – according to B&H. I believe that this makes it the cheapest camera capable of recording 4K (not including smartphones, of course).
