RGiskard: I shoot no video, so this may be an uninformed question, but... how far off is the GH5 going to be from "real" cinema cameras made by RED and others? Miles apart, or are the capabilities converging somewhat?

Some of the RED cameras are still light years ahead of this camera. They cost 10 times or more though.

If you can't make amazing footage with a GH5 then maybe you just can't make amazing footage.

mpgxsvcd: That is a beast of a hybrid camera right there. Unquestionably the best performance per dollar in the video department.

From the samples so far I see virtually no rolling shutter, excellent noise performance, and simply astounding resolution. What is not to like about it? Even the price isn't really that much considering everything you are getting with it.

Search youtube for GH5. There are tons of short documentaries now. They look incredible with youtube 4K. None of them are true HDR yet though.

I thought the GH4 had auto ISO in manual mode? Does the GH5 have Auto ISO in manual mode plus exposure compensation?

All complaints about this camera will be stricken from the record.

H.265. According to Dpreview it has it.

Oh well. Can't blame a guy for hoping. Still is a great camera. I wonder if H.265 could be implemented in a future firmware update?

On article LG V20 achieves 85 points in DxOMark Mobile testing (12 comments in total)

I love my V20. I got it after they pryed my Note 7 out of my cold nearly dead hands.

The dual lens concept is great but I really do like the dual lens camera in my daughters iPhone 7 plus better.

The best part about it is the super wide angle the wide lens can achieve. It is very useful.

Time to cancel that GoPro plus membership. I am not sure they will be around long enough to take advantage of it.

I wish I had bought the Karma now. It would have been worth it for a Hero 5. The drone was a disaster but the new Hero 5 is actually pretty good. The quality of the video is outstanding with the Hero 5 and the price is not out of this world high especially if you get it for free.

mpgxsvcd: Will there be an equivalent phone in the U.S.? I am really in a bind. I have a Samsung Note 7 that I really should return. However, none of the other phones seem like a great option to me.

I want Android with good battery life and at least 64 gigs of memory. Removable storage and removable battery would be great as well.

I really like the dual cameras in the iPhone but I just don't think I am ready to switch to IOS.

The V20 looks like a good phone on paper but there are way too many issues with it and the past LG phones.

The pixel looks good but it appears to only be available with 32 gigs of non-removable memory.

Any help is appreciated.

Lars,

Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated. You really do a great job with your reviews and you are very helpful with your comments. Keep up the great work.

Will you or Dpreview be doing an LG V20 review in the near future?

24 Carat Gold is one of the best materials to use for a drone because of its light weight and toughness.

Said no one, ever.

That is a really nice camera.

On article Throwback Thursday: Canon EOS D30 (132 comments in total)

Looks like Dpreview is trying to "Make Canon Great Again" by revisiting the time when they actually lead the industry. Unlike our presidential candidate's slogan this slogan actually makes sense.

I really long for the days when Canon was at the top of their game.

I thought I would never consider going medium format until I saw this camera.
