Mytherapy was given an unreleased prototype of the Panasonic GH4 camera to test. We brought exciting young photographer Michael Furlonger on board and created an amazing 4K fashion film. We were also able to extract high quality 8 mega pixel stills, which prove that the size of the camera is no longer a barrier to the quality of the image it creates. This little compact camera captures 4K images that rival anything we have seen from the big players. Watch our superb behind the scenes video to see how it was all done!Here's a BTS

NAB 2014: The Year of Unusual Cameras | Filmmaker Magazine
It was clear that this would be the year of 4K, but perhaps more surprising is who plans to ship 4K cameras this year.
Sony, who actually bought out two new 4K cameras last year – the F5 and F55 – clearly decided they didn’t need to roll out new cameras this year. Instead, they announced ProRes and DNXHD recording options, and a new ENG-style base for these cameras. They also announced that the F5 will be upgradeable to the F55
Panasonic GH4 vs Sony A7S compared – who wins the 4K battle on paper? | EOSHD
I will be shooting with both of these cameras this year. I am super excited to own both of them. I’ve already shot for a week with a pre-production GH4 and loved the images. For me the pair of them each have their own purpose. Speaking personally for my own filmmaking work, the GH4 has the advantage of small size and stealth as it doesn’t need an external monitor or recorder for 4K recording and it has a sensor size compatible with my Cooke PL mount lenses. This will be useful for on-location situations that call for high image quality but discrete filming, to capture a natural mood and non-staged moments as a documentary shooter.
Sony A7S – does it have Super 35mm 4K mode too? | EOSHD
One of the enigmas emerging from the A7S is whether you can shoot 4K in APS-C crop mode as well. APS-C is Super 35mm in cinema language. I really would like to use my Cooke S4i Minis via a PL adapter on this camera! Taking advantage of the low light sensitivity. APS-C crop mode would also allow the use of standard Sony E-mount / NEX lenses, Canon EF-S and Nikon DX lenses.

My Thoughts on the New Cameras Announced at NAB 2014 | WolfCrow
Why? Who is this camera for anyway? The Scarlet was supposed to be a camera for the low-budget indie filmmaker. Raising the price point of a ‘Scarlet’ just to keep up with the Epic seems strange. After all, why not buy the original Epic instead?
