It's a wrap at the filming of The Key Question, a new mystery game show that I'm directing. From left to right: IZ (Producer, Director), Luisa Gan (Host), Freddie Lim (Executive Producer, Creator).

On behalf of the team at The Key Question, I would like to congratulate Luisa for recently winning the Miss Singapore Tourism Queen International 2014 crown. We are proud of you Luisa!
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.
