[Ron Hunter]"Can someone explain to me why it is desirable to make the GH4 footage less sharp? Does "less sharp" = "film look"?"
Some prefer to sharpen in post, as opposed to having the camera do it. Some want a dreamier, softer look. I shoot luggage videos occasionally and if I don't turn the sharpness down I can get moiré from the fabric weave. It's a personal thing––whatever gets you the look you want.
