I can't think of a better way to kick off a new year in Luminary Corner than with a post like this from Daniel J. Cox. What I really love about it is the diversity of the topic...you're used to seeing Daniel's work in the wild. Well, he's almost stayed true to his primary passion in photography, only we've moved from the outdoors and onto the "wild" of the ice with a little lesson in hockey and some fun family history.
However, regardless of whether or not you're interested in sports photography, that's really not what this post is about. Daniel's point is - still images from 4K video. His short tutorial at the very end is well worth watching.
Make sure Daniel is on your radar along with all of the LUMIX Luminaries. You'll find everybody hanging out at the NEW LUMIX Lounge, just a click away.
This past two weeks of the Christmas season has been a whirlwind of family activity. The gift of being together is better than anything I could ever imagine under the Christmas tree. Along with family comes the opportunity for lots of pictures, but more on that in a later post. Today it’s all about taking still images out of video clips.
I shot most of the game capturing normal stills but eventually I thought about the 4K Photo Mode and realized this might be an excellent opportunity to see what it could do. Setting it up is easy by going to the Video tab on the Main Menu and selecting the 4K Photo on the first page.
That’s the capture part. The next step is to pull those individual 8 Megapixel stills from that video. To explain that I produced a semi-short “how to” that gives the details. You can see it below. Let me know if you have any further questions and once you’ve given it a try, stop by and let us know how it went, what you shot, and your thoughts on this new technology. I think it has phenomenal potential for the world of capturing pictures.
