Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer features Hulk vs Hulkbuster



The trailer for the new Avengers movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron is out. Synopsis: With S.H.I.E.L.D. destroyed and the Avengers needing a hiatus from stopping threats, Tony Stark attempts to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program with Ultron, a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence. However, his plan backfires when Ultron decides that humans are the main enemy and sets out to eradicate them from Earth, and it is up to Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, along with support from Nick Fury and Maria Hill, to stop him from enacting his plans. Along the way, the Avengers encounter the powerful twins, Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, as well as the familiar Vision.

Ultron is voiced by the amazing James Spader. What is interesting in this trailer is that Tony Stark still has his Iron Man armors, at least some of them. And one of them, the heavy duty Hulkbuster will be used to fight against Hulk.

Avengers: Age of Ultron  comes out in April 2015. Long wait.

GH4 Slow Motion at 96FPS



An earlier test I did of the slow motion capabilities of the GH4 shot at 96fps. The variable frame rate function of the GH4 changes the frame rate in shooting when recording the data, which realizes unique fast-motion and slow-motion effect. Value can be set between 2fps and 96fps.
