Late last night Panasonic announced the long awaited GH4, a camera capable – among other things – of shooting 4K video. Saying you can shoot 4K, and actually shooting quality 4K are two very different things. So, how is the quality from the new 4k GH4? Take a look for yourself at the video below.

The video above was shot entirely in 4k by photographer¬†Bryan Harvey, who was lucky enough to be one of the few selected to test this camera out.¬†“The 4K image detail captured with the new Panasonic LUMIX GH4 is impressive. If a project calls for a small form factor camera shooting in 4K, the GH4 would be a great choice.” Harvey said of the GH4. You can see more of Bryan’s thoughts via the video below:

I am really impressed with this footage. It has incredible detail, and for being shot on such a small sensor it actually looks really good (I was skeptical of such a small sensor). This makes me even more curious about what the price on this new camera will be. Panasonic has publicly promised a price tag under $2,000, so if I had to guess I would say somewhere between $1500 and $2000. But, we shall see.

What are your thoughts on this sample footage? Share them below to join the discussion.
