A few weeks ago I wrote "So a little video respite is upon me whilst I wait for the affordable equipment to become available. Luckily that will be soon as Panasonic will release their 4K capable Panasonic GH4 camera in the next couple of months. .......".

Well the respite is thankfully over and, under controlled conditions, I have been getting to know Panasonic's GH4 for my video exploits. I am still getting the hang of the camera and its character. There are some things which are a distinct improvement over my former Nikon 800e for video (e.g. file quality) and some things that I still miss such as Nikon's extensive menus and Aperture compatibility. I am sure this is going to be a very interesting journey for me.
The following is my first test macro wildife video, shot at 4K and then reduced to 1080 for viewing. Shot under controlled conditions with 2000 watts of supplemental lighting.

They range in size from 10 to 25 mm (0.4 to 1 inch). An assassin bug uses its short, three-segmented beak to suck the body fluids from its insect victims.

The assassin bug uses its short, three-segmented beak (rostrum) to suck the body fluids from its insect victims.They range in size from 10 to 25 mm (0.4 to 1 inch), this specimen was about 15 mm so you get a good idea of the level of macro detail that the camera and 4k codec can extract from the scene with the right lens.
