Hi Gordon,

Thanks for great GH4 review.

In the very begging of your review (in second paragraph) is written: “The GH4 can record 4k internally to a UHS Class 3 SD card at 4:2:2 8 bit,…”
As I'm understand this sentence is saying, you can get 4:2:2 on SD card, without any external recorder.

Official web site ( and some other big sellers (B&H) has written (copy from B&H description): “Video recorded to SD cards is 4:2:0 8-bit. Real-time 4:2:2 8-bit and 4:2:2 10-bit video can also be sent to an external monitor or recorder with an optional micro HDMI cable.” So, if I understand correctly you need external recorder to get 4:2:2 8bit and it can't be recorded to SD card inside the GH4.

Did I missed something or there is a mistake in your review?

I bought the GH4 a few months ago and continue to be impressed by the video and stills capability. A few nights ago I took a video twenty minutes after sunset here on Kangaroo Island and was shocked by the quality of the video in such poor light. I was using an Olympus M Zuiko Digital 45mm f1.8 lens on the GH4. Here is a link to the video on Vimeo. There is a bit of noise but considering the lack of light to me it is remarkable. I could barely see the pelicans by eye as they swam between the jetties.
