Re: "How Good Is The GH5?"

Yeah as I said, I didn't even bother with it when I took the camera on a casual shoot.

Looks like one of two things:

- 10bit on the GH5 is broken/garbage.
- Apple can't yet properly play back/understand 10bit .MOV files from the GH5.

Re: "How Good Is The GH5?"

Have you heard more about these artifacts from other users? I did hear more about Apple users having issues with the GH5 10 bit codec though.

Re: "How Good Is The GH5?"

No, but I haven't looked around much. It's such a glaring problem that I'm having a hard time believing Panasonic shipped this feature. Did they think no one would notice all sorts of blocks and video-wrecking glitches?

This isn't pixel peeping after color grading. This is right out of the camera junk video.

If it's working for people on other NLEs then Apple needs to get on it.

Re: "How Good Is The GH5?"

What you also could do is film a few seconds of footage where you see the artifacts and make the file that is on the card available for download for others to check or you can send it to me via wetransfer, if you want I can check it on my pc, I'm using edius, it would make clear if it's a camera or softwareproblem.

Discuss.

And now the retraction from the same site.

Shows that you can't indeed form an opinion based on one review.

Re: "How Good Is The GH5?"

^ Yup. Unfortunately this camera has gotten some bad press because of shoddy testing on the part of some reviewers.
