This is a WILDLY small little setup, but don’t get it twisted, the image quality out of this guy is phenomenal. Shoots 4K 24/30P. There are a few little quirks that make this quite a unique camera to shoot with, mainly being the back LCD screen is cracked. Despite this crack, it works perfectly and doesn’t affect visual quality. Basically just a way to get the same camera for cheaper. The autofocus might as well not exist, the 20mm lens is not compatible with continuous Video-AF, and the Tamron lens while very sharp, versatile, and compatible with Continuous AF- has the loudest autofocus motor I’ve ever heard. It’s really something to behold. This camera has Panasonic’s class leading In-Body Image Stabilization, it is legitimately some of the smoothest footage you will ever see without a gimbal. Given that this is a Micro Four-Thirds camera, the crop factor vs full frame equivalents is considerable adding up to about 2.4x when shooting in 4K. Despite its micro 4/3 sensor, it is actually decently capable in low light. All this comes together to create a lovely, surprisingly tiny little camera rig that lasts around a day and a half off one charge. This is a great camera for someone looking to get into cinema-style video, emphasizing learning the art of manual focus and run and gun video. I’m including a right angle Micro-HDMI to full size HDMI converter because Micro-HDMI ports are notoriously easy to break, so this alleviates some of the strain of plugging and unplugging it, plus it is protected from hits by the cage. Im also including the “eBay supreme” hdmi capture card. It accepts 4K 60P signals and down-converts them to 1080P thru USB so you can use it as a webcam for streaming. The concept of this package is to be as versatile as possible while remaining as tiny as possible. This includes *everything* you need to start filmmaking.
