Panasonic GH4 for shooting video is gonna be my new my camera very soon. I'm wondering what I should do about the lenses...
Should I buy a new one like Olympus 12-40mm 2.8 or buy a Metabones and use my Sigma 17-50 2.8?
I've been watching at some videos in youtube/vimeo and I really have the feeling that Sigma is not sharp enough... am I right? Any opinions about that?

I have been creating amateur videos, subject wild life, mostly birds for about 15 years. All of my video has been made on foot or in hides. Both of these methods work OK with a tripod. I have been using camcorders. You don't have to be able to read between the lines to see that a professional video maker would cast me to one side. But I have hit a problem.

Is 4K Video Worth It (on YouTube)?

Selecting 4K playback resolution on YouTube

Video resolution has come a long way since the days of video camcorders, but the drive for higher resolutions has woken everyone up to the fact that when it comes to networking files and uploading them to the Internet, "bigger" isn't necessarily better.

Hello! My name is Erin and I am independant female filmmaker. I recently completed my first fictional short, One Two Three Two One, and it was selected to be part of The Audience Awards avant-garde short film competition. Please check out my film and vote for it! Get familiar with The Audience Awards, too, they're a great resource independent filmmakers and an innovative alternative to the traditional film festival.

In my latest VFX video Tutorial I will show you how to create a moving photo, or put a video inside a photo! This effect has many uses - maybe a moving painting hanging on a wall? A moving picture in a book?
Anyways - Hope you all enjoy and please remember to Subscribe! :)
