  • You can't though. Double blind scientific studies have been done on this. If you know (or are told) that one is a high-bitrate MP3 and one is a lossless format, you will placebo effect your way...

  • @NZ Scott: good thing the GH5S dropped in price, eh? I got a used one at KEH for $1400 and they're $1900 brand new on B&H as of this post. I can see now why it was definitely worth more, but I'll...

  • If your lens can't resolve enough detail, the higher megapixels are just wasted. Most common lens-body combinations in general seem to provide under 10 perceptual megapixels on DxOMark, so what's...

  • I'm a casual movie maker. I chose the GH5S. I do pro work, but not often, and I've been doing that work largely with a G7 rather than a "pro" Panasonic body. This camera is a game-changer. The dual...

  • Look again. The Sony is clearly inferior. Look at the fuzzy hat. Look at the fine lines on the suit. On the Sony, there is no fuzzy hat and there are no fine lines on the suit. On the GH5S, there...

  • It IS a good stills camera. The only thing anyone is whining about is the raw megapixel count, but I'd wager most of them are using lenses that don't even get 10 perceptual megapixels of resolution...

  • No, Gino does not have a point. Look at that video again. Look at the middle split-screen where the GH5S is in Cine-D mode. Don't compare the garbage V-Log L mode shots, just look at the Cine-D...

  • The sensor outperforms Sony's much larger sensors both in Philip Bloom's unscientific tests and in this very review. The body has a host of professional controls that make using it for professional...

  • Firmware updates have vastly improved the AF issues. IBIS is vastly overrated; lens-based stabilization is often plenty for those that want it, and gimbals are a far superior stabilization solution...

  • The A7 cameras do not hold a candle to the GH5S. The Philip Bloom video and this DPR review both show that the GH5S (in Cine-D mode or other non-log modes, specifically) blows the pants off of the...

  • 10MP photos are perfectly fine for most purposes. The Canon EOS-1D from 2001 took 4.15 MP photos and was used by professional photographers all over the world. The 1D Mark II was 8MP. The 1D Mark...

  • I don't think there is a limit on time, but the higher the frame rate, the less the camera can do in-camera processing of the frames. By the time you hit 180 fps, the camera is just dumping raw...

  • They open in RawTherapee just fine, too.

  • I strongly agree that this is the best review I've seen on this website. This camera is a revolutionary beast and needs a lot of explanation for people who aren't blind fanboys to understand what...

  • I have not been disappointed with any of my stills from this camera, except where I screwed up the manual focus, and I can't blame the camera for that. This camera is great for pictures as long as...

  • The GH5S does not have that level of rolling shutter. Something is wrong. Perhaps your lens has an issue. Some lenses just don't "like" some MFT bodies, unfortunately. If you have a stabilized...

  • @Foveonite yes, the GH5S has a slightly larger sensor than what micro four-thirds actually specifies. It is pushing the limits of MFT, so much so that when an optically stabilized lens is attached,...

  • I'm really late to this, but I'd say not to listen to the other two naysayers...at least, not entirely. This is a video-focused camera. It will take excellent star photos, but they will be...

  • It probably is, but that's only half the story. The hardware encoder probably can't handle that much data. 1080p at 240fps is 4x the data of 1080p at 60fps. 4K at 120fps is 4x the data of 1080p at...

  • No, it's a perfectly fine stills camera, too. The stills resolution is more than sufficient for all but the largest of prints. One of the big things that smart event photographers do now is shoot...
