An earlier test I did of the slow motion capabilities of the GH4 shot at 96fps. The variable frame rate function of the GH4 changes the frame rate in shooting when recording the data, which realizes unique fast-motion and slow-motion effect. Value can be set between 2fps and 96fps.

New theatrical trailer for Transformers Age of Extinction is out. "This is not war. It's human extinction," says Optimus Prime in the trailer. But my favourite line is when Optimus says they need a new army and out comes Grimlock! Not sure if I've ever seen a fire breathing T-Rex but hey this is a Michael Bay film so what the heck! I can't wait for Transformers Age of Extinction! Screen captures here.
