That kind of sounds like a dictatorial government. Doesn't it?

Why not adjust shutter speed to DOF match instead of ISO? Just increase the shutter speed instead of the ISO.

When you say "709" in the video does that mean you used the "Like 709" profile? That profile clips highlights early in the GH5 and should be avoided at all costs.

mpgxsvcd: If the sensor can capture 14 BITs why are they only using VLog-L and not full fledged Vlog? Vlog-L is only capable of storing 12 stops of dynamic range. Full Vlog can do up to 16.

Is it only capable of utilizing the 14 stops of dynamic range in RAW stills mode?

@Dr_Jon the table says that it is 14 BITs for 24 FPS.

mpgxsvcd: I fail to see how the GH5s is going to be significantly better than the GH5. I am shocked that it doesn't even do UHD @ 60 FPS 10 BIT internal. No IBIS. No ETC at UHD/4K.

This is just a bizarre move by Panasonic.

@Astrotripper, yes you are right. My last comment acknowledges that. I now see the benefits of its High ISO capabilities after seeing some samples.

I honestly have to say that I was wrong on this. I have seen low samples now and I am simply astounded by what it is capable of at VERY high ISO values. I still would miss the features it looses but I can definitely see the High ISO benefit now.

After seeing some low light samples with the GH5s I must say that I am impressed. I was stunned at the difference in high ISO capabilities. I still think some of the things that were removed are a big deal. However, now I also think these low light capabilities are also a big deal.

It is kind of ironic that a camera store was robbed and they didn't have any video surveillance of the incident.

Yea that one pretty much wins the internet. I would love to see it in HDR though.

EskeRahn: That graphics is REALLY misleading...
By making the figures 3D-like they trick the viewer to believe the leaps between the versions are MUCH bigger than they are!

The real ratio is between the diameters, but the eye catches it as the 'areas' - very clever conning...

It is over 2.5 times the data rate. How is that increase not significant?

Sandler: Most samsung tvs are 4k 120hz already. What is missing is content, whether on TV, netflix/youtube or in games that need powerful graphics cards.

No current consumer TV can accept or display a 4K @ 120 FPS signal. One reason for that is that this HDMI specification is required in order to transmit that data.

Honestly, you just saw the bogus spec of 120/240/480 Hz and assumed that means the TV can actually display full resolution at that frequency.
ies
Current TVs can interpolate up to those frequencies. However, they are not capable of accepting 4K @ 120 FPS signals at all at the moment.

Link | Posted on Nov 30, 2017 at 14:01 UTC

There is nothing that can record those specs. There is nothing that can display those specs but at least now we have something that can transmit those specs.

I just want broadcast TV to switch away from 720p and 1080i. Is that too much to ask?

mpgxsvcd: Is the G9 limited to SDR50(50 MB/sec) with UHS-I SD cards like the GH5 is?

@stevedo

Where in the article does it mention whether UHS-I cards are limited to less than their full potential? We all know how UHS-II cards will work with this camera. The question is whether UHS-I cards will be artificially limited in this camera like they are in the GH5.

That price is just too much to handle. It won't sell in any significant quantities at $3000.

Can the super high resolution stills mode be used handheld or does the camera have to be on a tripod?

They should offer the super high resolution mode on the GH5 as a paid upgrade.

What is with all the random numbers that appear throughout the article? Is it some kind of code we need to crack?
