Panasonic G9 V-LOG L Upgrade – Video samples and review

Finally committed to the V_LOG L upgrade to the Panasonic G9. Is it any good?

If you are thinking about the upgrade then check out my sample clips. There are lots of high contrast shots to test the claim that there is 12 stops of dynamic range.

A must read: VLOG-L Based Production (from Panasonic): https://pro-av.panasonic.net/en/dvx4k/pdf/ag-dvx200_tech_brief_vol6_en.pdf


Review: Laowa 17mm F1.8 lens – MFT – M4/3 – Micro four thirds – Panasonic – Olympus

This is a user review of the Laowa 17mm F1.8 C-Dreamer lens for Micro Four Thirds – MFT – M4/3 system which include Panasonic and Olympus cameras. Don’t expect laboratory condition tests this was done in my living room during COVID-19 lock-down but I believe that the results are interesting.

It’s available at a great price especially if you buy direct from China. The delivery from Laowa in China was incredibly fast.

Overall this is a quality item but does it perform well?

The Unused Clips of 2019 in 4K. Panasonic & Olympus Micro Four Thirds – M4/3 – MFT showreel

I had some clips from 2019 that didn’t make to any other video so this is a collection of some of those clips. My hope is to show that the Micro Four Thirds system still has a firm place in 2020 (and beyond) and that when care is taken to expose a scene properly the system can demonstrate good dynamic range and low noise in many different lighting scenarios. Or maybe I just wanted to find a use for some otherwise redundant clips… you decide!

The Micro Four Thirds system is subject to the occasional criticism but I have found it a great replacement for my Samsung NX equipment and you will not find better value if you want to shoot 4K video.

We hope that you enjoy the video, please subscribe as we will do out best to upload videos that inform or entertain.

Review: Waterproof Camera Case by B&W International type 4000

My review of the B&W International waterproof case (Type 4000) that I use for my M4/3 (Panasonic G9) camera and lenses.

These cases come in a variety of sizes and with various inserts for different uses, this one has ‘Pick & Pluck’ foam along with a DIY home made lens insert. This video also details a strap hack that you can use instead of buying the optional B&W International shoulder strap.


Probably the best value motorised camera slider mod ever! ;-)

This simple camera slider mod can be applied to motorise many sliders. It’s simple to do, very effective and the components are cheap to buy at around $30. There are lots of options for powering the slider as well as customising the range of speeds.

This video has many slider samples featuring the Panasonic G9 and Olympus 60mm macro lens. The rest of the content was filmed by the Panasonic G80 with 12-60mm kit lens.

A lazy Sunday at Torigni-sur-Vire with the Panasonic G80 and 14-140mm lens

A few hours spent walking around the lakes and town of Torigini-sur-Vire in Normandy. France.

Filmed with the Panasonic G80 and the Pansonic 14-140mm lens which is probably the most versatile lens or the Micro Four Thirds system, it covers a vast zoom range and yet produces excellent quality sharp images, highly recommended!


Olympus 60mm f2.8 Macro Lens – Summary review & 4K video samples

These are my first video clips (A Walk At The Lake) shot with the fantastic Olympus 60mm f2.8 Macro Lens mounted on the Panasonic G9.

The video contains a brief summary of my observations and recommendations for this lens.

I hope that you enjoy the video & samples.


Agon Coutainville

Agon Coutainvile is a beautiful seaside town on the west coast of Normandy in France. Vast often empty beaches and a 3km promenade will appeal to both sun worshippers and walkers. The tide goes out a long way so swimmers should check the times of the tides or face a long walk! The town has all amenities. If you are in the area Agon Coutainville is well worth a visit.

Filmed with Panasonic G80/G85 and the Panasonic 14-140mm lens.
