6K Photo Mode – Post Focus on Tech Talk

Post Focus is a handy mode to have in your toolkit. It makes it possible to create a hyper focus image with depth of field that rocks the house. Here’s an example I made when I was recording the Tech Talk Radio show with Mike Tabback at KAZM Radio in Sedona.

Here’s the Tech Talk Show which aired on May 10, 2017. We chat about the new technology in the Lumix GH5 including an almost endless focus available in using the Post Focus Mode. Find the demo capture and final image below.

KAZM – Tech Talk Show with Mike Tabback and Bob Coates Photography

First, here’s the video clip created with Six K Photo Mode. The recorded clip is less than two seconds. I have extended it to about six seconds in order you to see the camera making its way through the 225 focus points.

Sharp front to back! And everywhere in between
Creates an almost image size of almost 5000 pixels.

There would have been no way to have the KAZM logo on the microphone in focus as well as Mike further into the scene no matter what f-stop was used in a single capture. When a lens gets stopped down to the smallest aperture diffraction and diffusion get introduced to the image which can hurt image quality.

Image was made with the Lumix GH5 camera with the 12-60mm f2.8-4.0 Leica DG Vario-Elmarit Lens

PS – If you have questions about using this technique or any ideas for future blog posts don’t hesitate to give me a shout. As a Lumix Luminary, I get the opportunity to work with a lot of the new technology including the GH5 Camera and some of the newer lenses that have been released.
