  1. I assume you are being sarcastic and are saying the image is a bit faded or washed out for your liking?
  2. Interested in feedback from people who have used the electonic image stabilsation function ? I have the GH5 and have never gone near it as heard horror stories about using this with warping etc in previous cameras with this feature. The dpreview says the crop is minimal when in use and no obvious loss in quality?...makes me think it might be worth a try?
  3. Some LUT tests...not too bothered about opinions on the grade, but is the exposure ok on these few clips? https://youtu.be/RTN-o47i9ZM
  4. What's the correct luminance level for both 8 and 10 bit?
  5. Here we go again..today trying out Leeming Ones LUT And here it is with the balanced lut ontop of the base LUT
  6. I like the feature where you can assign a function to a function button by simply holding down on it for a few seconds and then selecting what you want it to do...much easier than assigning each one through the menu
  7. Comparing the GH5 Vlog-L profile with the Standard Profile in my garden this evening..all settings in the video description https://youtu.be/DUD1Lq_Asyw
  8. More testing of the vlog-l view assist feature
  9. quick try with filmconverts new gh5 profile
  10. My Edinburgh Vlog-L footage again! This time with James Millers Vlog-L-Rec709 LUT https://youtu.be/AxavKc8sZDA
  11. Sorry yes it is compressed.. my broadband is too slow to upload the originals, so these have gone through transcoding to pro res in final cut then Outputted as h.264 file
  12. I would love to see other peoples grades on my files! Yeah the weather was great up until yesterday!....I was really looking forward to filming in the sun..until I woke up!!
  13. In reference to my above Edinburgh video I have put the ungraded vlog edit into dropbox if anyone wants to download and grade for themselves.. https://www.dropbox.com/s/qr5qfagz6tm63t5/edinburgh4kungraded.mov?dl=0
  14. i used filmconvert for exposure, the colour is from a lut i bought from neumann films gh5 lut pack
  15. Here is my first video from todays filming, Edinburgh in Vlog
  16. Have to say the inbuilt stabilisation is amazing. I bought the 42.5 1.7 iOS lens solely because I didn't own a fast stabilised prime for my gh4. I had the 25mm 1.7 LUMIX lens but that had no iOS and was unusable handheld. now with the gh5 I can happily use the 25mm 1.7 handheld.. and find myself using it more than the 42.5 because of the better focal length. i honestly cannot tell much difference between the stabilisation the inbuilt gives with a non stabilises lens and dual is 1 with something like the 12-35 mk1! oh and low light is a lot better, as is noise reduction.. pretty much shot in the dark at 3200 with minimal noise and after some neat video you would think I was shooting at ISO 400!
  17. The transcoded clip from final cut pros resolution is 3840 × 2160 so it is 4k
  18. yes you can only load luts through activated vlog what settings are people using for auto focus for video?...afs, afc, aff? face recgonition or 255 points and what about peaking?...peakingset to low or high?
  19. There is a menu option to set how sensitive the eye sensor as I found the same issue, you can set it to low so it is not that sensitve or you can stop it auto changing altogether, and you can press the LVF button to switch between the two
  20. After a weekend playing with the GH5 and 2 years of the GH4 I am happy with my purchase. Did the improvements warrant the hefty cost and the upgrade in general? probably not for me, as I am just an enthusiast who loves filming family occassions and taking his camera around with him whereever he goes. I am sure all the fancy stuff under the hood would be more noticeable to those using the gh5 to its limits for paid work. I was looking mainly for stabilisation as most of my work is handheld, and this camera delivers on this in leaps and bounds, especially noticeble with non OIS lenses. I purchased vlog and after some initial trials I am back to using standard profiles. I shot some standard footage over the weekend and showed it to my wife and mother in law , 10 bit 4k 150mb in standard profile and the first thing they both said is "wow look how amazing that looks...it feels like you are there!" Now these guys are not pixel peepers, and they watch my footage all the time and are used to high quality hd footage, but this change from the gh4 to gh5 was instantly noticeable to them, the humble viewer who normally wouldnt care if something was shot on an iphone or not! Low light seems to be better as well, and with a bit of netvideo you can get really clean footage.... All in all if I hadnt have managed to sell my GH4 for £1000 I would not have been able to consider and\or afford the GH5. As it was though, it was a £700 purchase for me, I already had lenses so as it stands I am very happy!
  21. @majoraxis your wish is my command!
  22. Here is more footage , this time shot in standard
