Tokyo Slow-Mo and Fast-Mo: Fun with the GH4 in Shibuya (VIDEO)

Slo-Mo & Fast-Mo Tokyo - AkihabaraNews.com

Panasonic's Lumix GH4 has Variable Frame Rate!
As any photographer knows, high-end cameras with VFR built-in allow for the rate of frames... to be like, you know, varied. And thats a good thing because non-variable frame rates aren't as cool. Good enough, yeah?

Well, no.
Actually, to really get a handle on what VFR means and why it's a super sexy camera feature, you'll have to jump over to Senior Contributor Nayalan's GH4 review, but for now, this:

Shibuya Slow- and Fast-Mo
Nayalan's flagship review of Panasonic's flagship camera includes some great video and fantastic photos for camera heads, but this little bonus is more for general consumption; it's something special.

Suffice it to say, if you know Tokyo's Shibuya ward, this will give you new perspective; and if you do not, you'll either long to visit or run away scared (too many humans!). Enjoy, and maybe like... turn it on for background at a party. 

We're totally doing that.

Seavac has been researching the conventional coating technologies using TiN, Ti-Al, and CrN, and developed ZERO-I, a new coating that combines the advantages of all three.

"The hardness is about 3,500 HV. This coating is heat-resistant to over 1,000 degrees. Conventional Ti-Al coatings were heat-resistant to nearly 900 degrees, but this coating has even better heat resistance, and hardness as well."
