Time to Meet Daniel Berehulak and the LUMIX GX8

Screen grab from the video – image by Daniel Berehulak

Intro by Skip Cohen

It’s a trifecta with a series of three remarkable short videos. I love the way Panasonic has told the story of the new GX8, but also shared the philosophy and work of Daniel Berehulak.

“Daniel Berehulak, a world-renowned award-winning photojournalist, travelled to Cuba with new LUMIX DMC-GX8 to document an evolving culture and society going through significant social, political and economic change.”

The first video gives you a chance to meet Daniel as

Panasonic’s Adventure Reel – What a kick!

Picture
Take two minutes and just watch this video. Yes, it’s an infomercial for a couple of Panasonic products, but technology is changing every day and this is the Spartan Race. Plus, there’s a little of everything in this one with a GH4 on a drone, Panasonic’s wearable A1 Point of View Adventure Cam on two participants and plenty of action as you watch the film crew work just about as hard as the runners themselves!

I’ve assisted on a couple of weddings, photographed a few events and a good number of spectator sports, but nothing matches the Spartan Race. The next time you think you’re challenged with a tough venue to work for a wedding or event, think about the photographers covering this one. Even better, think about the editing as images from every camera were put together to make this two minute reel.

Like I said already…What a kick!

Scott Rhea, the GH4 and "Dalia’s Dream"

Picture

“I chose to create Dalia’s dream as a short narrative film because I liked the over all theme of pursuing a dream and it offered a broad palette for using the camera in a variety of locations. By default, my background shooting fashion always leads to color and movement.”

Scott Rhea’s quote above pretty much explains the short narrative film below. Technology is constantly taking us in new directions and Panasonic’s tagline of “Changing Photography&#8221

"Light of the Yucatan" and Panasonic’s new GH4

Picture
Panasonic just keeps raising the bar on their products and the new GH4 is remarkable.
The 4K image detail captured with the new Panasonic LUMIX GH4 is impressive. If a project calls for a small form factor camera shooting in 4K, the GH4 would be a great choice.” Bryan Harvey
