With the traditional LCD, the bulky display cell of the LCD is backlit with a line of lights or a single lighted panel. With LED, the LCD cell and assembly is still backlit but with individual lights, making up a large grid of individual lights. What makes OLED displays better is the infinite contrast and true black. Long gone are the days of a white wash effect that turns dark bold colors into lighter colors because of white back-lighting. Now all colors are projected as their true color, not just lit up with white lighting.
Focus Assist features three display modes. PEAKING Edge detection based on contrast, with variable sensitivity. Image can be displayed with edges highlighted in red, green, blue, black white or yellow. Or only detected edges can be displayed as white, with other image elements in black. REVEAL A more aggressive, complex focus detection system. Sharper objects highlighted, with a variable sensitivity control. Can be combined with Peaking under that control’s menu. ENHANCE Simple edge enhancement display. Allows for easier judging of focus by artificially augmenting sharpness on the OLED display. Pixel Zoom enlarges a section of the image on the OLED panel to better judge focus and other aspects of the image. The resolution of the video area of the OLED panel is 1280x720. 1:1 zoom and 2:1 zoom enlarge a select section of the image to a pixel-for-pixel crop. 1:1 shows a 1280x720 crop from a 2K/HD signal, 2:1 shows a 1280x720 crop from a 4K/UHD signal. Hyper Zoom modes show a reference window on the image and an enlarged representation of the image within that window on the lower right corer of the OLED screen. Hyper Zoom modes include 4:1, 6:1, 8:1, 10:1 and 12:1. The Odyssey Pixel Zoom offers the unique function of allowing the enlarged window to be moved within the image frame simply by dragging a finger or stylus on the OLED screen.
Zebras is an exposure tool to indicate any part of the image that is at a particular brightness. Zebra patterns can be represented in Black, White, Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Cyan, or Magenta colored stripes, and the underlying image is visible in between the stripe lines. Brightness range for each Zebra pattern can be individually selected with a high and low setting or that Zebra pattern can be switched off. Ranges can overlap, and any exposure value not selected will be represented as it appears in the underlying image.
Spot Meter is an exposure reference tool, presenting a brightness reading at a selected part of the image in both brightness (Luma) as well as the three separate color channels (Red, Green, and Blue). The Spot Meter can be set to display a single-measurement target, two-measurement targets or eight-measurement targets. A graphic comparison display can be set to show the two target values side-by-side or the differential between them.
A Histogram is an exposure tool indicating brightness by volume of image across a horizontal plane. The brighter the image the farther it is to the right. The more of an image registering at a particular brightness the taller the line graph at that brightness. It can be set for overall brightness (Luma), with the three color channels separated (RGB Parade), or as the individual color channels only (Red, Green, or Blue).
A Waveform is an exposure tool used for measuring the brightness of the image throughout the frame. It can be set for overall brightness (Luma), with the three color channels separated (RGB Parade), or as the individual color channels only (Red, Green, or Blue). The Waveform display aligns left-right to the image on the OLED display. In Multi-Stream mode, if two images are displayed side-by-side then the Waveform can be used to compare the signals.
False Color is an exposure reference tool, attributing different colors to various brightness portions of the image. Available colors are Red, Yellow, Pink, Green, Blue and Purple. A video signal is measured in a scale from -7 to 109, often marked as a % or with the suffix IRE.
A Vectorscope measures the color spectrum represented in the video signal. Different hues are represented by the rotation around the circle. Different saturations are represented by the distance from the center to the perimeter of the circle. Reference targets represent specific values in both hue and saturation. Two diagonal lines bisect the Vectorscope circle. The “I” line passes from orange to blue hues, and roughly represents the tonal reference for common skin tones. The “Q” line passes from green to magenta and is useful in indicating imbalance between those opposing hues.
A Look Up Table (LUT) is a set of exposure, contrast and color offsets to adjust an image. Originally designed as a tool to indicate on one display how an image would appear on a different type of display, LUTs have expanded to also become tools to preview color grading decisions. The Odyssey7Q+ includes numerous 3D-LUTs for previewing the LOG video outputs of several popular cameras in standard REC709 contrast and color.
Monochrome represents the individual color channels (Red/Green/Blue) or the overall brightness (Luma) in a gray scale image.
Frame Guide presets available are 1.33:1, 1.85:1 and 2.39:1. Odyssey also gives you the ability to name and save up to four custom frame guides. Left/Right control sets frame sides. Top/Bottom control sets frame lids. Linking adjusts Left/Right or Top/Bottom together. Rectangle eliminates lines outside inner box. Select colors between White | Black | Red | Green | Blue | Yellow. Up to four custom frame guides plus one preset frame guide can be displayed at the same time.
Horizontally stretches image to correct for use of optical anamorphic lenses. Image altered on OLED screen as well as SDI and HDMI outputs. Does not affect recording. Options are labeled in squeeze multiplier and displayed aspect ratio. Full Frame options always show full width and height of recorded signal. Center Extraction options show popular extracted frames.
The image on the OLED can automatically flip to match the orientation of the screen if needed, or this feature can be disabled. This allows for flexible mounting of the Odyssey.
While the Odyssey’s OLED screen provides an excellent image with intuitive touch screen controls and information displays, sometimes one does not want to see it all. The Hide function can be set to make either the controls & displays disappear or the video image go black. A tap anywhere on the screen brings the full display back.

Using only about a 16.05-megapixel area of sensor makes it possible to give three aspect ratios – 16:9, 3:2, and 4:3 – the same angle of view. The image processing LSI, Venus Engine FHD assures high picture quality in both photo and movie recording.
The DMC-GH2 can record high-resolution full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 50i movies in AVCHD format. Sensor output is 50p. High quality sound can be recorded with Dolby Digital Stereo Creator. In addition, the DMC-GH2 has a wide range of movie modes including Manual Movie Mode, 24P Cinema Mode with 23Mbps, Variable Movie Mode and iA Mode. When the DMC-GH2 is connected to a Panasonic VIERA via an optional mini HDMI cable, the TV's remote control unit can be used to enjoy playing back with greater convenience.
The DMC-GH2 adopts touch-control shooting. While shooting, AF can be set at the desired part of the frame with just a touch. You can also operate the AF and shutter release at the same time. While playing back, you can quickly select an image to view by scrolling images. The 3.0-inch 460,000-dot free-angle LCD with a touch-screen operation makes both monitoring and touching at any physical position. In addition, the Double Live-View function offered by the free-angle LCD and 1,533,600-dot Multi Aspect Wide Screen LVF (Live View Finder).
The My Color Mode and Film Mode featuring new Cinema Mode make it easy to customise colour effects to match your preference. In still image recording, the Peripheral Defocus Mode automatically adjusts the focus to match the AF area you positioned while gently defocusing the foreground and background to emphasize the subject. In movie recording, Variable Movie Mode records movie in slow or quick. When the LUMIX G 12.5mm / F12 is attached, the DMC-GH2 can shoot 3D images. To view the recorded images, simply connect the DMC-GH2 to 3D VIERA televisions.
The iA Mode, featuring Intelligent D-Range Control and advanced Intelligent Resolution technology, serves as a combination of functions that makes it easy for anyone to get beautiful photos and movies. With the advanced Intelligent Resolution technology, 3 areas – outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation areas – are detected. Apart from the uniform enhancement of sharpness, this technology precisely performs signal processing pixel by pixel in most effective way according to the area. As a result, images are clear and crisp.
The PMW-F3 inherits DNA from the F35, which has been used for years in high-end digital cinematography, as well as most of the features and file-based workflow capabilities of PMW-EX1R and EX3 XDCAM EX solid-state memory camcorders.The PMW-F3 is equipped with the newly developed Exmor™ Super 35 CMOS image sensor, PL lens mount, and SxS card for 1920 x 1080 full-HD recording. The PMW-F3 features future expandability, including RGB 4:4:4 baseband output with S-LOG gamma for external recording which means it can be used in an HDCAM-SR™ workflow. It also offers a 3D-LINK option, which allows two camcorders to be controlled simultaneously for 3D stereoscopic shooting.
