I've repeatedly talked about the talent of Panasonic's LUMIX Luminaries and their diversity. It's time to meet Joseph Linaschke, one of the newest members of the team. He actually ran this post on his blog, PhotoJoseph a few weeks ago, but it's so remarkable, I wanted to share it with all of you.
Shooting with the GH4 he's pulling still images at 8 MP from the 4K video. Check out the detail. What you can do with images like this is amazing. It should just send you off into a "what if" moment or two, because truthfully, technology and Panasonic has made sky the limit.
Joseph is a remarkable artist and you'll find a lot of great images and content on his blog. It's just a click away.
Here's a video sample. The video clips are unedited, and not color graded at all. The video will pause on a few still frames, two of which you will see the original, then a graded shot. The latitude of the GH4 file is impressive. Notice in shot at the top of this post, I was able to pull up some detail in the grill on the front of the car. Pretty impressive.
The first clip is on YouTube, which supports 4K. The second is on Vimeo, which doesn't support 4K, but will look better if you're viewing this on an iPad.
