Roof Over Paradise – by TS Naylor. GH5s. Olympus 12-40 & 40-150.

SHOT BYT.S. Naylor




This film’s about those who work behind the scenes to uphold the illusion of paradise.

Shot on GH5s, it was intended as a camera test to see how 60p and V log play together. Not well. In either 10bit FHD or 8bit 4k V log bands quite horribly. Unfortunately, being on vacation I couldn’t see this until I got it on my computer. I hope this is something Panasonic can fix,

I shot it with Olympus 12-40 2.8 and 40-150 2.8. Optically these are excellent lenses. With no IS, I used a monopod for the 40-150 and handheld for the 12-40. Coming from a film background, I don’t miss the IS. A little camera shake doesn’t kill me. It was my first time using the 40-150. It has the reach of a 70-200 in FF and that extra 40 over the Panasonic 35-100 makes a huge difference. Also being able to switch to true manual (no fly by wire) is worth it.

Here’s the link. Enjoy.
