The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:Lightness, handling, construction quality, tropicalization, silent shooting, double stabilization
Cons:Battery life (battery packable), sensor seal at high ISO
Opinion:Purchased in October 2017. More than 3 years later I am very satisfied with it. Let me say that I do not make movies at all, but only photos. The reasons for the transition to micro4/3 were all confirmed in use, during excursions for photographic hunting in the high mountains or trips where it was necessary to move "light". Initially with the 12-70 PanaLeica flanked, by adapter, by the Summicron R 90/2 and the Apo Telyt 180/3.4 that I had for some years. Next, I purchased the 100-400 and 45 macro PanaLeica and a used GX8 body. The quality of the images, up to 800ISO, is nothing short of mind-blowing. Rising in sensitivity, there is a progressive degradation that, at 3200ISO becomes too evident for naturalistic photos. Moving from reflex to mirrorless, you appreciate its greater compactness and lower weight (also for the micro4/3 format), double stabilization and silence. The price to pay is the lower battery life.
Pros:The point of reference for those who make videos. Excellent stabilization, fast and ergonomic. Batteries with good autonomy. 180 fps, 4k 60p, vlog
Cons:All MFT sensor limits
Opinion:Still today in 2019, the GH5 represents the point of reference for those who make videos and not only. Use with the inseparable Leica 25mm f/1.4 lens, razor-sharp, compact, lightweight: excellent. Combined with the 12-60 Leica f/2.8-4 becomes a perfect tool for those who make video, to the point that makes unnecessary monopod and tripod. Excellent camera which, given the current price, has few rivals
Pros:Small, portable, many lenses, image quality more than good. SUPER in Videos
Cons:Some noise exceeded the ISO 800
Opinion:Really a great machine that I would recommend to all those who seek the maximum in the field of photography and video. The cost is honest and the image quality satisfies me very much. As always I recommend the Micro 4/3 system for its very small lenses and light but also good quality... I also did a videorecension to fully explain my impressions: Https://youtu.be/KfwQO_-8J8M
Pros:Ergonomics, key layout and overall user friendliness, 6K burst, "Post Focus", comfortable joystick, adjustable 3.2 '' TFT display with touch surface, battery life, weight, image quality processed, integrated a 20 megapixel 4: 3 sensor and a 5-axis image stabilizer, dual UHS II SD slot, is capable of up to 12fps with focus locked on the first shot or 9fps with continuous AF and all with a buffer of 100 shots in RAW, very quiet, a true companion for the 'street' and beyond.
Cons:suffers at high ISO (for me zero problems)
Opinion:In the Pro I have highlighted what from the photographic point of view speaking and then as owner from the beginning of his arrival in Italy, are the essential things that this camera body can offer. In the Contro evidenti the fact that the Panasonic GH5 suffers in fact at high ISO. Personally I never go over 1600 ISO and I am a lover of fixed luminous lenses so problem solved. This camera body is designed in reality for videographers with the possibility of customizing the keys and the commands that makes it even more special but not within the details. The excellent video qualities of this machine are very appreciated at the professional level.
Pros:Very good in photography, exceptional - even in relation to price - in video
Cons:The menu and instruction manuals (both printed and advanced PDF available): not because the menus and instructions are complex, which is inevitable since the GH5 has so many functions but how they are MALE TRADOTTI. Is it possible that Panasonic can not entrust the translation of the translation to someone who really does the photos and uses blurred phrases and expressions that are immediately understandable and not mysterious and incoherent phrases as an automatic translator? The micro4 / 3 sensor lightens a bit at low lights even if less than the GH4; Sony with the Fullframe sensor does better but with other costs and other defects
Opinion:I think reviews should be made after a bit of use, but in this case I would like to give you a few personal impressions on this new Panasonic release right after two weeks from the purchase. Perhaps they may be useful to those wondering whether to go from GH4 to GH5, or anyway they wonder why there is a difference, as GH4 is still in business and costs much less. Everything is centered on the video part that is the one most practiced and proven. In PHOTO, however, the GH5, with a 20mp sensor without low pass filter (versus the 16mp of the GH4), goes very well. RnrnIn photos as in video The stabilizer in the body of the body, which also deals with stabilized and even non-stabilized lenses and also NON Panasonic, offers obvious benefits: I got, for example, filming insects on the flowers with a Nikon 60G macro that seem almost made with tripod and head Fluid, instead I had only one monopod and active stabilizer on the GH5.rnIn body, while the GH4 was great, with the GH5 moving forward: it has less noiseThe ISO, offers a little more in definition because it has a "plastic" yield of the GH4, thanks to a greater sense of separation of the planes and shapes. The "CROP" of the GH5 is 2X also in video (and not Plus 2.3x): so an 8-18 mm becomes a 16-36 mm. In the 4K video there is also the possibility of inserting a CROP 1.4 that still uses all the 3840x2160 pixels needed to lose quality: a good advantage, because a 100 mm becomes a 140 - and precisely without qualitative drop - allowing you to enlarge The more the subject varied by the shooting (very interesting thing for those who make videos to wild animals as i signed). RnSiccome I use more than manual focusing can not now evaluate the autofocus. In MF, you are helped by the focus peaking feature that is useful and reliable, and also allows you to zoom in on the affected area for even more accurate focus. The 4k video at 8bit 4: 2: 0 is otthyme. I think that having this option has little sense of filming in FullHD, except for particular cases where memory is missing on the card etc. In 4k will be available in 2017, with a firmware, the 10bit 4: 2: 2 (with its pros and cons: pro in quality and next editing, against the memory it requires on 400mps SD cards - which is not They are not even on the market - to tacer that VLC and other players are struggling to reproduce the 4: 2: 2 10 bit fluidly (and QuickTime does not read it right). However, for a "consumer" use the 4k to 8 Bit is already very good and well managed by players and editing programs. The variable frame function allows you to get in various video combinations at slow motion (or accelerated). The slowdown at 60% in 4K is very good. I did not try those with FHD video.
