If you have 3 minutes, enjoyhttps://vimeo.com/214452695. This is why the market is in a tailspin. The Panasonic Lumix DC-G90 (called Panasonic G95 in some regions) and the Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 are two digital cameras that were revealed to the public, respectively, in April 2019 and January 2017. @Dragonrider, so when that happens, you add 5 points (or whatever) for every camera that has 4k.... that's exactly the advantage of having absolute scoring is that it means the numbers do increase when manufacturers add more features, so we can compare this year's model to last year.... 5 axis / E stabalization = terribleDual - Sensor/lens stabilization = great for long shots, apart from that , still that woozy tilt & pitch effect... even with wide angle lenses with moderate camera movement Hardly anyone seems to be talking about this terrible, (unusable for serious projects), stabilization effectWith the mark 1 12-35 with v 1.3 firmware there is only the option to turn sensor stabilization off on the lens barrel , turning off optical stabilization. That's no small feat. What more do you need when you sell a thousands of dollars of images in an hour shoot? After two hours of trying to bend, alter, and even tape the thing on, I … That's the exact language Panasonic used to describe the timing. The camera has Panasonic's usual stable of features that take advantage of its video capabilities, including Post Focus, Focus Stacking and both 4K and a new 6K Photo mode. Actual cinematographers use cinema oriented cameras. You are right that real film needs to stay. It was a Betacam Sony 627. If it's a film I actually care about, the digital look can ruin it for me, It almost becomes unwatchable, otherwise I don't even notice. Is RX1 heavy? What’s the best camera for less than $1000? The current GX800 is larger than the GM line but those were smaller than basically any other ILC, and this GX is more of a GF (and smaller than pretty much all GF bodies at that). We’ll now place two camera cages for the Panasonic GH5 (and GH5S) head to head for an in-depth look, review and comparison: Chrosziel and Tilta.Let’s see how they perform and which one comes out better in this GH5 cage shootout!. Just because you don't understand something doesn't mean it's lame. All movies are not shot at 1/50 shutter. If you don't like it, please don't buy it. The GH5's feature set moves on suitably far from its predecessor that the company says the GH4 will remain in its lineup as a lower-cost option for users who don't need the additional capability that the GH5 brings. The GH5 also gains a more advanced algorithm for interpreting movement within the scene, to reduce the risk of the camera getting confused by movement as it builds its depth map. Read a book on film history and digital cinema. Personally, I don't get this constant bickering that M43 has to be small and cheap, not to mention the format did provide options for one to achieve it albeit with limitations (which is understandable.) But all cameras, more or less, have the same set of features. I'm not sure why Panasonic chose 150 mbps. Taking a comparison set of this camera, GH4, GM5, and Fuji XT2, in the comparison tool in the review, I could not see any genuine meaningful improvements in image quality from this new camera in RAW up to ISO 1600. I was thinking just like you at some point but after a few years, shooting videos and stills with the same camera is just amazing. Likewise I watch lots of old films on Turner Classic Movies channel and don't think much about the fact that it's on film. 100 GB of garbage is still garbage. It is heavy as a compact but light as a FF camera. It's just my two cents, take it or leave it. Panasonic GH5 Review: Essential Specs . "Jack of all trades, master of none". Got my GH5 on April 1, so, it's been almost three weeks. In my usual posts about photography, I'm constantly annoying the rest of the forums saying how much I miss CCD, and the overall rendering of old school cameras (I recently bought a Nikon D2x and wrote a quite polemic post on the Nikon forum, mainly saying who much I'm also allergic to the rendering from modern sensors). In fact, it just slows the camera down when shooting on the street or at a sports event. Video super champ. That's a pretty broad generalisation, the GH keeps getting bigger because there's a demand for the features that keep growing it, M4/3 bodies as a whole aren't getting any bigger. Playing 25fps on many panels (-that are 60Hz) looks juddery even in 50Hz 'PAL' countries. The GH5 is a very good product for those that need it, and a very useless product for those that don't. Plus your overall signal is cleaner.". Yongnuo, makers of lenses, cameras and other photo accessories, has filed a patent for a modular mirrorless camera system. The problem is that it was shot on digital? If you're looking for a high-quality camera, you don't need to spend a ton of cash, nor do you need to buy the latest and greatest new product on the market. But they are heavy, and yes an SLR is lovely to use but my little Lumix is portable and let us face it, takes great pictures. I'd say this camera is 80% video 20% stills. " Panasonic's goal was to match the IBS capabilities of the GH5, and it succeeded. Panasonic offers a wonderful mirrorless camera designed to meet the needs of the most demanding videographers. Just my taste I suppose...all the other brands are great too. Also, per your post, if "most of the photographers you know don't want video," how come you think that you might be "the only person here who actively DISLIKES the current trend to produce hybrid stills/video cameras"? Ah,if anyone else is interested got the answer from another forum. The “regular” GH5 is one of the best hybrid cameras on the market. This means that rather than using a cropped area of the sensor when shooting 4K as was the case with the GH4, the GH5 uses the entire width of the chip and then downsamples the footage in-camera. From a pragmatic approach when production has a decent budget, it will rent an Arri/Red/BM. My point was that development cost counts and given the current market situation you may get the hybrid device or none. Panasonic Lumix S5 review October 15, 2020. That said, I disagree we're too far off with digital. With digital, you've gotta remember less is more, and force yourself into that rule. Somewhat related, I'm also surprised that DPR did a review of the Fuji MK 18-55 lens, but hasn't mentioned anything about the recently announced Ursa Mini Pro. It's not the most misleading marketing statement we've ever seen, but be aware that 6K may not mean quite what you might expect. Its a professional codec so you can throw it around in post somewhat. Really not sure if I understood that, but I think it's fascinating that pro video cameras start at that high ISO. But don't get too excited – you still won't be able to download it until May 30th. @57even -- Maybe you are actually paying less. The Video on the GX7 is fine for what I need. If Alexas and REDs do not satisfy you, surely any m4/3 will fail miserably. I don't know what NLE you use but in Premiere you can reinterpret the footage so it reorganizes your frames to the preferred framerate. "FF" physics is amazing. Dec 8, 2019 Leaked Panasonic firmware update is made official. !In the meantime im stuck with a camera I feel I can only use on a tripodWould like to know if there are extra menu options available for those with the mark 2 lenses...ie optical stabilization with locked off sensor. I returned the unit for a refund. In sum, the GH5 is an impressive enough camera, but $2K is too much for what is ultimately a big, video-centric, body wrapped around a small sensor with an aspect ratio that for video discards at least another 25% of the sensor due to choice of the 4/3 sensor aspect ratio. Ghost in the Shell is particularly one of the most breath taking movies ever (visually speaking). I have not compared vis a vis, I don't have the EM1 or the GH5, but the GH5 looks like it can do a rather remarkable quick/accurate job at focusing. Which, of course, is an eternity these days in the ever increasing megapixel-oriented and spec-oriented space known as the digital camera market. I like dhte GH4 already a lot but here the EM1.2 with birds etc indeed is better. You're already getting a baked video file with very limited PP range from the start. This way someone trying to choose between say a second hand 5Dii and a new apsc camera would have a clear point of comparison. With regards to noise again, its best to use a camera at its base ISO. I've used a GH5 on a few occasions and it did seem smoother than my GH4 when panning. @bleeboo - let's be honest here now. Almost all stills cameras these days incorporate video recording, and are hence hybrids. The a6300/5 are amazing little cameras in several regards and remind me of a souped up yet temperamental VW -- awesome, fast and great performance when working properly but prone to potholes and needy in terms of maintenance. 90 Mb/sec -- my a6300 does 4k at 100Mb/sec. @Jorginho, never mind, but for what reason do you love them? It seems that ALL-I the only benefit I can see is would be that its easier to edit with. The GH5’s sensitivity range improves on the GH4’s by a stop at the bottom end of the range, running from ISO100-25,600 compared to 200-25,600 on the GH4. Of course, there are drawbacks to DSLRs which have been much expounded upon in other forums. The heart of the difference between the GH5 and the GH5s is the sensor. H.265)29.97fps2-channel 128Kbps/48Khz AAC (LC) audioSo it's more some additional hi-res 4:3 modes than an all-new one - I assume you get 24, 25 fps now?Oh and the handy anamorphic display. I've been using m4/3 professionally since the GH1 in 2009, and my m4/3 photos sell just as well as those taken with other brands. Meanwhile, GH5 buyers who need reliable AF can: a) avoid wide apertures or ambiguous lighting or contrast; b) use MF and chain a close subject in one place; c) use MF, keep the subject at least 4 meters distant, and set the MF near infinity; or d) cut-away to b-roll footage, or any overlay, if all else fails. The Arri page on the Alexa Sensor size usagehttp://www.arri.com/camera/alexa/technology/arri_imaging_technology/alexas_sensor/. I signed but I don't know how much good it will do or not. I don't think that has much to do with the enthusiast market, personally. Maximum 5.9K/29.97p RAW video output; Dual native ISO; 14-stop dynamic range; The Panasonic S1H features a 35.6 x 23.8mm, 24.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor and is the first camera capable of 6K video capture. Get real. I honestly don't understand how anyone can see even the best digital movies as anywhere near film quality....yet. With a 1.8x squeeze, the lens produces a more pronounced anamorphic effect than the 1.33x lenses offered by Sirui, albeit at a much higher cost. Hence the convergence of still & video. Film making and even digital is not entirely new. This isn't RAW. Our Verdict. This is the guy who knows what he talks about. If you have missed it:M43 user David Thorpes review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfqtqoGpn8I. The GH5 gets Panasonic’s Axis Dual IS II anti-shake system. The m4/3 format has many advantages for video recording, however, I would still grab an a6300 or A7Sii when shooting extreme low light. Ok, so this camera compare tool, as it is, is useless and induces ambiguities for the readers.You should improve it or at least limit the camera list to relevant cameras, let say one year old cameras and write a disclaimer on top of the tool !Thanks. The GH5 features the latest iteration of Panasonic's Depth From Defocus autofocus system, which uses pairs of images and an understanding of a lens's out-of-focus rendering to create a depth map of the scene, to speed up focusing. Am I happy with what I got with the GH4? 'What's the best mirrorless camera?' I had a GH3 too but have "downsized" to GX8 (primarily stills) and G85 (primarily video). There should be cameras dedicated to stills, and those dedicated to videos. Please prove me wrong. There is much less incentive to upgrade. They buy what fancies their needs and go shoot.... m4/3rds seems like a good compromise between megabuck traditional professional video cameras with (still) small sensors and hulking DSLRs with 35mm sensors. On the other hand, digital makes it possible for more indie filmmakers. Verdict. But I won't deny, I'd seriously love if those shadows were at least 2 stops cleaner, so there's always room for better IQ in the future. In my "Allergic," post I had written longer to try to explain what I mean, but the forum word limit forced me to cut out most of it and I ran out of time. One just has to choose the right tools for the right job. If it will get really close, I will be happy enough. Really useful stuff is now peripheral, but it needs to be bundled. On a side note, I'm always planning to go back to film for my still photography :D It always remains a "maybe in the future" kind of thing, but the idea never fades away. And if one doesn't like one's own posts, what is the point in writing them? It will cost MORE. Panasonic announces LUMIX S 85mm F1.8 lens Panasonic has announced the LUMIX S 85mm F1.8, a new L-mount lens designed for use with its S series... Wednesday November 4, 2020 Also it has a lot lot less noise. Therefore S log is great to use outdoors or in bright high DR situations. That would move the market forward. Here's a link to an in-depth article that explains how the scoring system works. GH5 is basically a very good video camera with reasonable price considering it has many video features consumers have never seen. I noticed that I can no longer get CS6 Adobe Photoshop to read the .rw2 raw file from the GH5. I have 3 m4/3 cameras, and a bunch of good lenses, so switching systems just doesn't make sense monetarily. Thank you for signing up to TechRadar. It’s over 2 years old now.

While it lacks the show-stopping flare of its counterparts, it remains a camera that is highly sophisticated and functional. TechRadar is part of Future US Inc, an international media group and leading digital publisher. The greater processing power of the GH5 allows the camera to consider a wider area of the image when calculating the color values from each pixel. Updated noise reduction is also supposed to be better at distinguishing between noise and detail, meaning that detail is better preserved during the noise reduction process. The camera itself could be hugely simplified. Introduction and key features. Conclusion.

The rear camera (or cameras) on an iPhone has all the latest bells and whistles, but how do you use them to capture a selfie or record a video of yourself? They've added several major new features to make it more video-friendly, namely the unlimited recording time, free built-in V-Log L profile, slow-motion recording at 120fps, and the addition of a headphone jack, making it a great B-cam to accompany the flagship GH5/GH5s cameras.

Upgraded, redesigned, and filled with features, the Lumix DC-GH5 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera from Panasonic provides an outstanding imaging platform for shooters who demand some of the best video and still photography quality they can get in a single compact camera. I think, as we speak, m4/3 cameras have improved to a point they're good enough to anything but (obviously) A and B level professional filmmaking. Anyhow- DFD helps with Olympus lenses and 3rd party lenses too, just not to the same degree as Panasonic lenses. Nonsense! By exposing at ISO 800, you're generally overexposing (already well lit) shadows, and so pulling them further away from the sensor's noise floor. Panasonic is keen to stress the GH5 is intended for stills as well as video. I just wish the m4/3 bodies didn't keep getting bigger and bigger. I requested this on the Panasonic forums and a moderator said my suggestion has been noted and will be forwarded to the engineering department. It looks like you're watching reality, a real story captured on cameras. Others have tried this, but more evidence is helpful. Panasonic Lumix GH5 review Blurring the lines between stills and video By Phil Hall 22 November 2018. Is this camera still relevant today? Perhaps you need to have your eyes checked. The 5D II was ground breaking to include 1080. However, the process of downsampling may create new samples points that do not exist in the original recording for a clean result, but many, if not all, of the original sample points will be discarded in the end, so the total number of samples will be lower, thus the term downsampling. I've seen numerous focus follow errors, mostly in less than high-end movies. Not recommended for professional use. In other worlds: I'm not sure digital capture itself is the problem. I wonder if an absolute scoring system would make comparisons between newer/older and cross platforms easier. I grew up with Look magazine. pretty sure it does 1080p *up to* 180fps. When m4/3 was first introduced the selling point was equal IQ to APS-C up to ISO 400 with less expensive cameras and lenses that are also smaller and lighter. lol. You see, it needs moving pictures as much as still. What would be interesting is C-AF with tracking etc. Pany must have missed that memo. Panasonic GH5 was released in January 2017, with a MFT sensor which can shoot in 4k up to 60 frames per second. When you adjust these shadows back in post, you end up with cleaner shadows. And you would expect the price to be lower in that configuration? Review: Does the Canon Rebel T8i DSLR make sense in an increasingly mirrorless world? The Sigma 65mm F2 DG DN is for the photographer who wants a focal length that falls squarely between 50mm and 85mm. If mirrorless cameras are going to end up the size of pro DSLR's then the only benefit would be the EVF. I tested it 4 months ago so this is from memory.IQ: will be the same in RAW. Wow, it's like reading comments on some Fuji site... For all of you who say: I don't need all this semi-pro video stuff. GH series was hybrid from the start, so it will remain hybrid, but I do agree with you on the fact that there are people who do not require their camera to be a hybrid (I'm one of them).
