would what the camera have to do in order to score 100..... as it stands it's just another random number :-)That said, the strength of dpreview reviews has never been the numbers, it's been the overall depth and attention to detail, and kudos to the team for maintaining that. Is GH5 heavy and expensive? As when filming at 24fps and 25fps the pull-down required to display on the GH4's 30/60Hz EVF caused horrible judder. ... the Panasonic Lumix GH5 is … lol. Lowering the ISO's does not improve the sensor performance on a video camera and probably not on a stills camera either, your gaining down actually degrades the DR.

IQ of these screen grabs is phenomenally good. Part of the GH5 price premium is for video, sure, but I now see you want to see the video stripped out of cameras like the GX8 for a price saving. So you reckon all cameras should take calls and support messaging and Facebook? And for all Panasonic's expertise in video, it hasn't saved their camera division. The problem is "overdoing" things, the "more is more" mentality that modern filmmakers have, and that's getting associated with digital capture in the long run. It's so ridiculous on the a6500, it's one thing that could drive someone from that to GH5. I've noticed that as well and concluded that just creating your own JPGs out of the RAW will give you massively better results. Its important to work at native ISO (or in and around it) because it is where the sensor performs optimally. I have two friends or acquaintances who are professional videographers at a high professional level, and the both use GH4s, and are buying GH5s. Panasonic's effort in hybrid cameras is a attempt to find a niche, but as you point out, it doesn't seem to be a savior (in spite of some really nice cameras in the line). 23rd April 2019. Video. But for anything else, with external recorder, good noise reduction software, and skilled crew behind, I can see a GH4 or 5 being good enough for just about anything you wanna shoot. I do not see how it realistic to think Panasonic would release its flagship still camera (with or without video) at a discounted price. Flicker can ruin your shots and I know that because I have experienced it myself...When you shoot at 25 or 50 fps in a country where the electricity is running at 60 hz or vice versa you get a kind of rolling bar moving down your screen that is impossible to remove.

The Panasonic Lumix GH5 is the latest in the line of Panasonic's top-of-the-range GH series of mirrorless cameras. It is only cheaper for users to buy one device instead of two, provided they accept the compromises involved. 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. comparing the two systems in such a way might be due to a lack of elemental understanding of the matter at hand .... or a sign of utter confusion. The development cost of one hybrid system is assuredly considerably less than the development cost of two different individually optimized systems. 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. This should enable the GH5 to effectively correct for artefacts such as unnatural white edges, as well as reducing fringing and over-sharpening. Well my Em1.2 for single shot AF is not as fast as my GH4 so I guess you have an answer there. If you mean the studio test scenes, check the list closely. Does it mean, if i stop down my sony a6000 to 3.2 compared to a mft with 2.0 to get same DOF (nearly with crop 1.5), i will get same image quality? Maybe some day.

The specs say that the camera can shoot 48 FPS. It's video abilities are well applauded by too many, so I find it hard to think their are still some questioning that area? Of course, there are drawbacks to DSLRs which have been much expounded upon in other forums.

David Lean and William Wyler were in 2nd and 3rd place as my favorite filmmakers. I found this statement someplace on web site which holds true with regards to noise;It is just as correct to say the lowest possible level of noise is achieved when as much light as possible is hitting the sensor (without overexposing the image) and the ISO is as high as possible (without overexposing the image). In the end, we have to remember the GH5 is nothing more than a consumer product, and has to have a broad appeal to the mass market, so its sensor is designed having High ISO as a much greater priority than base ISO 12 / 25. Almost all stills cameras these days incorporate video recording, and are hence hybrids. 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. I think I'm allergic. (I doubt anyone would be unhappy. 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 is capable of so much for such a competitive price. Surely you can choose 120 from the menu? For IPB the motion-tracking part of the compression is the largest contributor into the final compression ratio, but camera's ability of tracking the movements is limited by the amount and speed of RAM and computing power available (modulo the thermal envelope), as the compressing engine needs to find new location for moving objects in each next frame and bitmap comparison is a very CPU and memory access intensive operation. If Panasonic would had removed the still photo shooting ability, what kind of benefits the video capture ability would had gained assuming the price would still be the same?

They're both very popular here at the DPReview offices, but they have very different strengths/weaknesses. Have a look. I'm certainly not complaining. Yes it can be harder to focus with a shallower DOF but for background isolation its better. Before the Panasonic GH5, you needed at least $8,000 to find a camera with a feature list as ridiculous as this. May because there are a lot of people that look at all the specs and how they translate into reality, than look what is out there on the market that can compare and have to conclude that at that price and size there is nothing. Enter the Ulanzi ST-09, an adjustable mount that allows you to turn an Apple Watch into a live viewfinder on the rear of your iPhone.

This tutorial will only focus on the autofocus mode for video. In fact, considered by many as the best hybrids in the industry. 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.
