mpgxsvcd: Is it a requirement that the card be a UHS-II card for the 400 MB/sec update? For example if you had a V60 UHS-I card, which is theoretically possible, would it be able to utilize the full write speed capabilities of the card in the GH5?

@Richard Butler

There was a post that said that Panasonic only implemented the SD50 specification for the GH5 with UHS-I cards instead of the SD104 Spec. If that is true then the GH5 will be artificially limited to a max of 50 MB/sec with any and all UHS-I cards.

Can you confirm with Panasonic whether this is true or not? If it is true it will mean that no matter what no UHS-I cards will ever work with the 400 mb/sec mode.

EOSHD has already confirmed that his Sandisk 95 MB/sec UHS-I cards fail after a few seconds with the 400 MB/sec mode.

24mm is too narrow and F4.0 is not fast enough. This really needs a 14mm F1.8 lens but then I am sure it would not be able to have a 1 inch sensor in that sized camera body.

Very excited for the HLG HDR functionality. You can't fully take advantage of what 10 BIT is capable of without HDR.

Right now HDR10 works from the GH5 but it looks terrible when viewed in SDR instead of HDR. With HLG you only have to render one file and it will look good in SDR and HDR.

The GH5 will be a beast after this update is released.

dirkluchtman: What about live view Performance and focusing? How does it compare to Canon's DPAF this time around? Did they vastly improve it?

I love the fact that Rishi is willing to just go out there and say it like it is. For stills shooting this thing appears to be absolutely unmatched.

Is there a mode to crop down to 20 Megapixels and gain any FPS speed over the full sized image 7 or 9 FPS burst shooting? That would be great for the sport shooters that need more speed and reach and can sacrifice a little resolution.

I am just stunned at how low the price of this camera is. For everything that it offers it looks like a bargain.

If you can't take great pictures and videos with this camera then you simply can't take great pictures and videos.

I am not impressed. Said no one, ever.

Always shoot RAW and make sure your camera is ISO invariant for this type of shot. If the camera is not ISO invariant you wouldn't be able to pull the shadow details at all without emphasizing the noise greatly.

You can make RAW look like anything you want it to. That is the point of RAW.

The key is to know your equipment and to practice before hand. Learn what can go wrong before it really matters.

mpgxsvcd: If the subject is stationary in good light can't you just shoot a bunch of 20 Megapixel images of it and make a 10,000 Megapixel image?

For $2.5 million, yes absolutely I want to see the bacteria on the car so I can get it off.

"those desperate to buy the camera do have other options." Like Sony, Panasonic..... etc

I find it interesting that they shoot the car with a $50,000 100 Megapixel camera and then upload the video in 1080p. The Panasonic GH5 can shoot 4K @ 59.94 FPS HDR for $2000. Such a waste.

Sounds Amazing!

........... And the price?

Was anyone else not that impressed by the Red and actually a little surprised that a $50 camcorder even exists?

Link | Posted on Jul 27, 2017 at 18:31 UTC as 40th comment | 1 reply

They used the wrong $50 camera. There are much better options than that in that price range.

Good thing my GH5 can record 4k/UHD @ 30 FPS 10 BIT 4:2:2 internally and in a few weeks it will be 400 mb/sec ALL-I. It even does 4k/UHD @ 60 FPS 8 BIT 4:2:0.

It really is incredible how many features they packed into the GH5 and still kept its price under $2000.
