Stephanie Shiu: shot with the Panasonic GH4: field report

Stephanie Shiu: On the hour: from Mike Kobal on Vimeo.

We talked about this shoot for weeks, scheduled, rescheduled and rescheduled again. A last minute booking or weather issues, too many reasons to list and I am sure many of you know how frustrating it can be to get everyone together on the same day.

well below zero and I headed to CP dressed in snowboard gear, the Sony RX10 a lightweight Sirui and a short Konova K2 slider.
It was the coldest day of the year so far and since cold days reduce atmospheric dust concentration the sky was bluer then usual. How did the RX10 hold up in these conditions?
