    No, since the AF100 is not (and never has been) a 4K camera.

    Just wanted to say THANK YOU to all, for the insights of using this camera. I'm getting ready to purchase one, possibly two, for a short film I'm shooting and the knowledge I'm getting from this site is amazing. I'll probably be asking some (hopefully not stupid) questions once I make my acquisitions. I'll be raising funds on kickstarter.com. If anyone of you are in like situation, then check this site out.

    Hate to tell you but it's in the User Guide on page 11. Quote:
    " - When using lenses other than those conforming to the Micro Four Thirds and Four Thirds standard, see the LENS CHECK item in the OTHER FUNCTIONS screen of the MENU settings."

    The Panasonic GH2 camera has the same thing, except it's a setting called "SHOOT W/O LENS".


    I don't understand why they can't design these things to check for lens data but STILL WORK if they don't find any, rather than having to turn off lens data entirely to use a non-CPU lens...
    Perhaps it's a safety feature so you don't accidentally shoot with the lens not mounted.

    I use both 4/3 and manual lenses and I just leave "lens check" to "off" and the 4/3 lenses continue to work just fine.

    Or if the lens-unlock button is slightly pressed in, the message will come up. Make sure that button is clear.

    Please Panasonic, update the firmware to modify the behavior of Audio output during VFR mode.

    Turn the HD-SDI off and turn EVF MODE to "ON" and both EVF and LCD will be active at the same time.

    It stays at what you set it. If you set it to OFF, it will stay OFF.
