YAGH-arrives

Finally after what seemed a long wait the kit is complete, the Panasonic DMW-YAGH has arrived, the review can begin.

YAGH-front YAGH-back

The YAGH is bolted direct onto the GH4 and feels very solid, today was a bad day for initial testing as my grand daughter took priority but I did manage to try out the Hawk Woods BPU power adapter.

YAGH-wider Pouch

The BPU 12v regulated Power adapter fits into a pouch that Velcro’s onto my belt, this was my whole intention to have a neat, light weight power solution.

I also just had time to put a gun mic into Ch1 XLR and it worked a dream, one thing that I did not know was that once you attach the YAGH you get access to a new menu in the GH4, page 2 (not seen) allows you to set the battery voltage level alarm.

Recording sound with a Tascam DR60D (£200)

Its important to make sure you choose the correct tool for the job when it comes to sound, the Tascam DR60D priced at £200 this is a real bargain.

Interface

Unlike the Panasonic DMW-YAGH (£1700) which needs external 12v power via the 4pin XLR the Tascam DR60D has its own internal four AA battery compartment and better still an SD card slot so you can record the sound as a great safety backup.

Rather than letting me bang on about the Tascam let me hand you over to Kevin Cook to run you through the DR60 in his own words.
