Recently I have been shooting video in 4K. 4x the resolution of full HD.(3840 × 2160). 4K video reveals a stunning amount of detail, so it’s important to use good quality lenses to make the most of this technology. It’s also important to remember if you want to edit 4K video on your PC, you’ll need a high spec system to handle these memory straining files!
The manual focus Kowa MFT lenses and Kowa telephoto lens are perfect for shooting in 4K. These superb quality lenses deliver edge to edge sharpness and the fluorite crystal objective lens of the telephoto lens delivers stunning results. Click free, smoth manual aperture control and manual focus make the MFT lenses the perfect creative tool.
The two following videos where shot using Kowa MFT and Kowa telephoto lenses combined with a Panasonic GH4.
The Still Night
My first video shot with the Panasonic GH4 in 4K mode. Anglesey was blessed with some stunning weather in late September and I was fortunate to be there! Shot with Kowa MFT lenses and the Kowa Telephoto lens 350/500mm.
Meet the Stonechats
I spent a few days observing and filming a family of Stonechats on the coast of Anglesey – really felt like I ‘d got to knows these birds after spending so may hours watching them throughout the day and in to the night – shot with the Panasonic GH4 in 4K and Kowa telephoto lens 500mm.
