The Panasonic GH5 is due for launch in late March, and it appears Panasonic was so proud of its product pre-release that the corporate has loaned loads of our bodies to influencers to publish preview footage. Day-after-day, new preview clips pop up on-line, however none as complete as this one by the staff at Camerahoarders.
Simply by eyeballing their footage and evaluating in opposition to the GH4, this video means that we’re between a half-stop and a one-stop enchancment in noise management. The in-camera stabilization appears far superior, particularly when pairing it with the brand new Panasonic 12-60mm f/2.Eight-Four lens. And lastly, as anticipated, the 4K footage appears tremendous sharp. Anticipate a complete Fstoppers overview as soon as the product is launched.
Kai W gave his typical informal, off-beat ideas final week, and Gordon Laing arrange a very good 4K noise comparability with equally featured mirrorless cameras such because the Olympus OM-D E-M1 II, Fujifilm XT2 & Sony A7s II. Though not unusual to ship out pre-release variations of cameras earlier than launch to construct hype, it appears that evidently the Panasonic GH5 is capturing the creativeness of filmmakers who’ve been long-term admirers of the GH4, however discovered its limitations and frustrations in areas akin to noise and stabilization.
The one factor that’s lacking in pre-release testing is the inner 400 Mbps ALL-intra FHD and 4k Four:2:2 10-bit recording mode, and that is as a result of we’ll all have to attend for a firmware replace in Summer time 2017 in line with the firmware roadmap.
