All edited in Final Cut Pro using the ProRes HQ codec. We applied some minor color corrections (using 3-Way Color). We also applied a very minor additional sharpening because the sharpening in camera was set to -2.

Clips 1+2 (Ducks in a pond):

Both shot with the Panasonic 14-140mm f/4-5.8 OIS lens using auto focus and O.I.S. lens image stabilization. The first clip shows a brief moment where the lens hunts for focus. The only way to avoid this is using manual focus.

Clips 3-6 (San Juan Bautista State Park indoors)

This time we used the Olympus 4/3 14-54mm f/2.8-3.5 zoom because it has a much faster lens. The desk shot was taken at ISO 3200. There is clearly some noise visible. This noise can be reduced using post processing noise filters.

Clips 7-8 (Oak tree on hill)

These clips illustrate the effect of the ETC (Extra Tele Conversion) feature.
