Re: New Panasonic GH5 Official

WB was daylight on both cams. Profile on both was stock "standard". From 8bit to 10bit, the only change was the recording format.

The 10 bit footage caused all kinds of problems with premier and quicktime (lots of crashes in both). I'm hoping its a prerelease issue. The noisiness of the 10 bit was a big surprise, too, but may be a prerelease firmware problem. I spent ages with some of the footage we shot "properly" earlier in the day and I just couldn't find any way that the 10 bit outperformed the 8 bit. But, i'm happy to be proven a dumb hillbilly by a more experienced colorist.

Look at the "Juiced Link" products. Solid, flexible, small and a great preamp!

This was a good test and clearly shows how much the gh5 has improved over the gh4, skintones also look different between both camera's but it's knowxn that panasonic has tweaked the color on their g80/gx80 so it's logical the gh5 would follow.

Re: New Panasonic GH5 Official

I'll preface my opinion with "I'm not planning on buying one".... so I've got no money or ego invested....

On a 4K 42" "monitor" (cheap Seiki TV), the differences were pretty stunning.... and from what I've seen the GH4 was already a pretty good camera.

More noise in the 10 bit clips vs 8 bit, but overall the GH5 was much sharper and cleaner, way more usable in low light. Darker areas that went to "mush"and mottled blotching in the GH4 clips (something I've seen before in Pannys) stayed crisp, sharp and detailed in the GH5 clips.

Glad to see the skin tones seeming to look more natural, that's always bugged me with Panasonic - my tests with Panasonic cameras have tended to show a weird blueish cast to skin and particularly lips... a bit "unhealthy" look, to my eye... the GH5 looked quite "healthy"!

Hadn't planned to move to this "system", in fact just bought a nice RX10M3 from someone who was... but that "quick and dirty" test was rather compelling! Panasonic has a "winner" on their hands, guess they are going to be the company "pushing the market" for a while! All the other companies will be sucking dust trying to catch up for a while, IMO! Credit where credit is due, GREAT job, Panasonic!

Re: New Panasonic GH5 Official

The noise on 10-bits could be occurring when feeding an 8-bit monitor. The bits get cut off, rather than dithered and rounded and you get some grit.

It would be interesting to run the same 8-bit and 10-bit image through a strong grading curve, then dither and output 8-bits. That's where the 10-bit source material will earn its dinner.

Re: New Panasonic GH5 Official

I've been led to believe that Jessops will have stock end of the week and should start shipping pre-orders then. Hopefully should have mine middle of next week. Just when I get back from filming in Ireland. Would liked to have had it before then, but it was a pretty tall order given I leave Friday. Can't wait to be shooting 4K at 50p. plus run my own tests on 10bit. Just been too many conflicting reports on it to draw any proper conclusions from. Not to mention that Cinema5D review they have since taken down.
