Best Mirrorless Camera of NAB 2014: Panasonic LUMIX GH4

GH4 and award

Panasonic DMC-GH4 wins the Best Mirrorless Camera of NAB 2014 Award.

Upon a second look at the GH4, we're very impressed by the little camera that can do great things. With video at both 4K resolutions, a Micro Four Thirds mount and ease of use, this LUMIX camera gets great images. The maximum bitrate of 200Mb/s will test the UHS Speed Class U3 SDHC or SDXC card you decide to use, while the flip out OLED will make it easier to shoot. The GH4 is small but strong with a magnesium alloy body, and has room to grow with attachments, notably one that can provide XLR inputs and colored audio meters. The zebra patterns are a very welcome exposure assist, and a Synchro Scan can help take out the flicker from a monitor or fluorescent lights. Since cameras can be very compact these days we decided to celebrate the GH4 for being both small and exceptional.
