Making a 60-inch Print from a Lumix GH4

It’s not just a 60-inch print but it’s taken from a frame of 4K video shot using the new Panasonic Lumix GH4 camera.

As part of my job at Panasonic I visit camera stores in the Pacific Northwest. When I walked into Pro Photo Supply in Portland last week they were in the process of printing a 60-inch long Epson inkjet print from a frame grabbed from a 4K video that store employee Matt Walsh shot with his own GH4 and the Panasonic/Leica 42.5mm lens. We all stood there as the print slowly came out of the printer. To say we were amazed is an understatement.

EVENT: If you are in Portland later this week we will be showing the prints and I will be demonstrating the Panasonic GH4 on Friday, May 16 from 10am-5pm at Pro Photo Supply. LA celebrity photographer and Panasonic Luminary, Michael Grecco, will be speaking at a free event on Thursday night, May 15th from 6:30-8:30pm.
