  • In the GH5 when I take time lapse video, the camera takes hundreds of jpeg photos and then stitch them into a video at the end. I want the final video to be 4K24p, which is 3840x2160. Should set ...
  • I shoot with GH5 primarily for video only. I currently have the Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-150mm F4-5.6 in my arsenal for the rare occassion on shoots that call for a longer lens. I picked it up ...
  • I have the 12-60mm Leica and the DH5 for about 3 weeks and had chance to test both lenses for comparison. I have decided to keep the Panasonic version and sell the Leica lens. I got about $500 for ...
  • The idea of having a prime lens is for situation where I want to have a bokeh (or better control of the background) and in low light. Chances are, it is going to stay in my camera bag 95% of the ...
  • Created question thread Panasonic Lumix G 25mm f/1.4
    There are two version of this lens, the Mark I from 2011 and the Mark II from recent year. The difference seems to be that the later version is weather sealed. The Mark I can be had for under $300 ...
  • You can get a video head like a Manfrotto 500, 502 or 504 (depending on the weight of your camera) and a Manfrotto 438 leveling base and you're all set. You can mount a Arca basemount on the ...
  • Created question thread Oly lens on Pany GH5 body
    Comparing to native Panasonic lenses, would the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm F2.8 Pro fit on a Gh5 body without adapter? And what functions I am losing? Autofocus? AE (A, S, P modes) IS (not ...
  • I tested the transition focus on the GH5 with the 12-60 Leica lens. It seems pretty smooth. With the 45-150mm.
  • What affect filesize: 1. Bite (data) rate 2. Codec (H.264 for compression) 3. Length of video.
  • So far in my research, AF is still an area of weakness for the GH5. That's why in my preconceived custom settings, all of them have MF as the element.
  • I am fully aware that I can touch the screen to refocus. But I think the transitional focus is a lot smoother. When I touch the screen (without the transitional option), the camera may not refocus ...
  • Created discussion thread Rack (transition) focus on GH5
    I am reading up on the GH5 to prepare myself for the new toy. One thing I found really interesting that I haven't seen many talk about is the transition focus feature. I think transition focus is a ...
  • Replied in How long ...
    Thank you all for the insight. I think, for all fairness, no one here had said that there is a huge difference between the two lens. For a premium of 300%, I have a hard time justifying keeping the ...
  • Thank you for your insight. I think the whole idea of DOF and sharpness is a lot more important in still photos where you spend a much longer time looking at a picture (print or on screen). In ...
  • Created discussion thread Panasonic 12-60mm. Lumix G vs Leica DG
    I am currently shooting with Pany GH4 and my primary lens for video is the Lumix G 12-16mm, f/3.5-5.6. I had just picked up a GH5 that comes with a Leica DG f/2.8-4. I am going to sell the GH4 and ...
  • Replied in GH5 V-Log
    I am just trying to expand my horizon. This certainly is way over my head. For practicality for my amateur application, I probably would not need the kind of depth like the profs. Even the 400 Mbps ...
  • Replied in GH5 V-Log L
    Thank you Markr041. Sounds like something way over my head. That makes it interesting for me to learn. At the meantime, I am sure my kind of video may not fully take advantage of the sophistication ...
  • Replied in GH5 V-Log
    I use PPCC. Is there any LUT that I can use? Exactly how LUT differs from adjusting the Lumetri Color in the adjustment layer? Is it something I create and save as LUT? Is there something that's ...
  • Created discussion thread GH5 V-Log
    Totally new with V-Log. Just bought a GH5 that comes with V-Log. Started looking into what this $100 option would do. Right off the back, the V-Log seems to improve the dynamic range (DR) from10 to ...
  • I love the built in ND in the Sony RX100M4. When I acquired the GH4, I bought a 3x ND and have been quite sufficient. Except in late dusk when the sun disappears, I have the ND on all the time. In ...
