I spent last weekend with the GH4 shooting footage in Appanoose County, Iowa thanks to director Nick Young of Cairn Productions. The shoot gave me plenty of opportunity to learn more about how the Gh4 performs. In short, it was a joy to work with, and I couldn't be more pleased with the images I'm getting.

I've had the camera for a little over a month, and I'm finally closing in on my preferred Picture Profile and settings. Here they are:

Picture Profile: Cinelike-D
Contrast: -1
Sharpness: -5
NR: -5
Saturation: -1
Hue: 0

Highlights: -3
Shadows: 0

Master Pedestal: 0 (set to -1 to -3 when using vintage lenses or in heavy backlight which lifts the blacks)
Luminance Level: 0-255

In any case, I am falling in love with the GH4.
