Deeper focus of smaller sensor also benefits macro photography. For any objective reasons or just hated and that's all? If Alexas and REDs do not satisfy you, surely any m4/3 will fail miserably. Tilty Flippy Screen. Chris and Jordan take a look at the new Sigma 35mm F2 and 65mm F2. Just for the record too, Panasonic has a vari cam with two native ISO's (one for lower light use). Using a 200-800mm (equivalent) for sports such as football, where one minute they are 4metres from you and the next minute 70metres away. Yes! Panasonic have moved the Lumix G90 in a different direction to previous versions. It seems that the over 50's are indeed in the minority on this subject. I seriously considered switching to either Fuji or Sony, but after considerable research and trying out the various models, I decided to stick with m4/3. "Jack of all trades, master of none". We all have our expectations but it does not mean they are all reasonable. 1600ISO is about as clean as ISO200. If you don't like it, please don't buy it. Panasonic GH5 Review.

It's worth noting that Panasonic already has two firmware updates planned for the camera, one expected around April, which will bring 10-bit 4:2:2 1080p capture, and a second at some point during the summer. 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. At lower ISO's, the number of total stops of DR don't change, but by giving the sensor more exposure, you are gaining shadow detail but losing overexposure detail. Having made my living with both mediums, being able to carry 1 camera instead of 2 - one of them costing me $25K and weighing in at 20lbs, and a pro still is a big deal for me. (This may not matter to you. Panasonic never did let me have a GH5 for long enough to run moire and aliasing tests, as my GH4 is amazing for that in 4k (although poor in 1080p, my FF Canon is considerably better). It was the retro-styling exercise that induced the bump in price. Sensor readout speed has more to do with pixel count, instead of sensor size. At 2 years old now, is the Panasonic Lumix GH5 still a good camera for shooting 4K video?. Astrotripper: all your complaints are on video, and I think they're a bit overstated; heck, the GH5 isn't even coming with log video support by default (and it has obviously poorer DR). I can watch Eyes Wide Shut every couple weeks and every nuance still shows me more. @Mike FL, If you can't be civil in your tone it's no wonder DPR is ignoring your snide little post. Panasonic GH5 review: Performance. Are you willing to not learn about video's evolution now? :). It does have excellent video AF, which is really the only good thing it has going on for it. Panasonic S1R Review. I'd rather first have RAW output via HDMI as current external recorders can record RAW, which makes more sense than RAW 240fps right now. 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). Video killed the radio star, huh? Unfortunately we're stuck with these beasts forever. I don't revel in most films just because they were on film. I would have liked to see more tests of rolling shutter distortion. Second, when it comes to low light performance, noise and usable dynamic range ( when I say usable I mean less noise in shadows and better highlight rolloff), larger sensors usually are better with their bigger pixels. I've noticed that as well and concluded that just creating your own JPGs out of the RAW will give you massively better results. Panasonic Lumix TZ95 Review . Video. 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. Those are all hybrids. I seldom shoot video so I won't dwell on that. The Arri page on the Alexa Sensor size usagehttp://www.arri.com/camera/alexa/technology/arri_imaging_technology/alexas_sensor/. Interesting...but if you have Olympus glass you're still probably better off with an E-M1, right? (29.97fps is smooth on any 30 or 60Hz screen, including the GH4). There is so much more potential for inter-operability with phones or tablets for instance. You are recording less data in the highlights and there is an emphasis into the shadows subsequently you will see noise if shooting in lower light/less DR. I would not recommend the GH5 for stills only persons. The prices are going up because the volume is going down. What exactly is "casual action shooting?". The audience could care less about blurring out the background. That's says to me this industry can improve sustainability of our environment by focusing more on firmware updates! Because the S1's sensor is so much larger, however, the IBS system needed to … The problem is that it was shot on digital? So when you factor in that DMF added quality and you take it as your standard, it's super hard to go back to APS-C and be completely happy (even though realistically speaking APS is indeed good enough). With incredible In Body Image Stabilization, a flip out screen, and best-in-class video … I'm planning to add a Sigma SD1 Merrill shortly with a couple of fine lenses which should run circles around the GH5.

I know all the arguments. We're glad you asked. This seems like a very good camera, and excellent for its sensor size, but it trails pretty significantly as a $2K body-only stills camera.

So you reckon all cameras should take calls and support messaging and Facebook? They will be Raw in near future. But I am surely not going to switch. When you adjust these shadows back in post, you end up with cleaner shadows. Cameras that have insane highlight headroom like the D700 or the DMF P40+, can be used on the extended ISOs with zero problems. A … I was expecting and hoping for a direct comparison with the Olympus EM1 mk2. I binge watch plenty of Netflix or Amazon series without having allergic reactions and don't think about it being digital if it tells good stories and has interesting characters, actors, direction, writing and originality. The Panasonic GH5S comes alongside the GH5 and is a model that is mainly aimed at videographers. I'm also super curious about base ISO (I'm always lighting my shots, so high quality base ISO is a must), is it noisy? At all setting above or below that, any setting is the equivalent of turning up the gain (effectively, the volume) on a pre-amp. too.So only ..crazy stabilization or nothing option..( so getting better stabilization results with Gh3 & 4 )Awaiting firmware update , mk1 to mk2 functionality later this yearThe latest lenses do not cure the sensor/E stabilization probsLooking at the dual & 5 axis stabilization makes me dizzy !!

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. 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. If Panasonic, Sony, Samsung, or any other party earnest to promote 4k discs or streaming, it would make sense to promote it for all to promote hardware, software, and display devices that support it. Nowadays scifi special effects, 3d anmation etc, dominate so many films, that for for me it has become humdrum even though I was totally into holography and 3D animation since it began, making my own holograms and later learning Softimage 3D and earlier software since the beginning of Personal Computing. It can record 6K at 24p at a 3:2 aspect ration, 5.9K at 30p in 16:9, as well as 10-bit 4K/Cinema 4K footage at 60p using the Super 35mm image area. ;)". I would wager that many GH5 buyers already have lenses they can use. I've been editing my Samsung NX1 H.265 files on a 5-year old AMD FX-8350 with an older GPU just fine. The market is much more crowded these days. Hybrid devices are the future most especially at the consumer space just look at the smart phone. 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. They're both very popular here at the DPReview offices, but they have very different strengths/weaknesses. So you say you can't turn the tilting screen to face you if you're filming yourself, or if you're holding the camera over your head?)))) Panasonic … I … The only truly tuned stills camera I can recall from Sony is their FF point and shoot RX1 series and that thing commands quite a premium for what you get. The sun starts to come out after a long winter, flowers are blooming and bears come out of hibernation. Low light - dont use these profiles, the DR does not match the profile, your pulling noise out shadows because of the shift from 709 curve. o). Firmware 1.0 in the 6k photo mode where you just start/stop video normally (so basically just a normal video recording mode, there were two other 6k photo modes that didn't have audio) with a 180-degree shutter would record high-res 4:3 video already (this is literally straight from the metadata on some GH5 video I shot in January):4992x3744 @ 4:3200Mbps (approx) HEVC (i.e. So I would like to see a page with a direct head to head. My concern about the GH5 is that moving from a "one sensor pixel per video pixel" to a small amount of scaling can often produce aliasing/moire issues (a greater amount of scaling tends to work better), so I'd suggest to look for that.My RX100V does 4k by scaling from all the pixels of its 20MP sensor (well, those in the 16:9 crop) and it's really pretty good, but not up to the GH4 in 4k. Previous Panasonic users should seriously take a look at this camera. After two hours of trying to bend, alter, and even tape the thing on, I … @Dragonrider - I don't see any evidence that cameras are getting any cheaper, do you? One just has to choose the right tools for the right job. Its 10MP resolution is a bit low for photos, but it's great for video. I like digital a lot (Ghost in the Shell is visually hard to beat), but if someday the industry just stops using film, it will be a tremendous loss. I just wish the m4/3 bodies didn't keep getting bigger and bigger. For an untrained eye, maybe the images produced could easily pass as Hollywood quality. It would be like having a harvest reaper and putting it with a tractor and calling a combine. Mainly regarding internal 4k 4:2:0 codec, is it too fragile? ... and what did Thomas say about the many video qualities of the Foveon Sensor ? I have a GH3 and it has been my favorite camera ever. !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.

Well Done Parnasonic Lumix. 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. So many people are bothered by what others like... And it's really none of their business... Lots of film photography sites. Acceptable, it doesn't drive me *completely* mad, but it's noisier than I'd like. review Aug 13, 2019 at 14:21 The Panasonic Lumix DC-G95 (G90 outside North America) is a 20MP mid-range mirrorless camera aimed at both stills and video shooters, but it … Panasonic Lumix G90 Review.

Remember, smaller sensors are better for video, since larger sensors are much harder to focus and end up leaving in a horrible out-of-focus blur for everything. As a result, it's difficult do a direct scoring comparison between a camera released today and one released three years ago. I honestly don't understand how anyone can see even the best digital movies as anywhere near film quality....yet. On the other hand, digital makes it possible for more indie filmmakers. May the GH6 have 12 bit, 4:4:4 internal 1080P video--even at UHD would be even better. They love it except the battery life is not that great and it overheats after 2-3 hours.

I just prefer a FF if the body is going to get that big. Absolutely the technology has matured at least until some breakthrough comes along that changes the game. But what I'm super sure is that it's too art directed, to the point you think you're watching a computer animation, or a video game. What a shame not including H.265 for video. You shouldn't have to re-encode the clip. Actual cinematographers use cinema oriented cameras. No where did anyone promise only small bodies and cheap prices for M43rds. From lightroom back to darkroom was the other time travel. With its 20MP Four Thirds sensor and deep video-centric feature set, it looks likely to pick up where the GH4 left off as a favorite of indie filmmakers and photographers whose interests venture into the realm of motion picture work. $2K for a huge m4/3 camera without a lens is ridiculous. I used Beta back in the day with a Hughes Owens Thermal Camera attached, that was a 'hot' package back in 89. Receive mail from us on behalf of our trusted partners or sponsors?

For all that GH5 has, I see it as a great value but that is through a professional's eyes. Not cheap, but worth it, I suspect, for pro-videographers, especially those who have bigger Panasonic systems and what something more portable for particularly rough field conditions... Perhaps I just didn't read closely enough, but it seemed as if you were shy about talking about the similarities and differences to "the other" top end Micro 4/3 camera, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II.
