    sudopera reacted to Chrad in Anyone not that excited about the GH5?   
    The main advances I see from this camera are the 1080p out of camera being of comparable sharpness to downscaled UHD, the ability to use stabilization with my manual primes, and usable V-Log files and monitoring without an external recorder.
    The low light imprpvement and removal of the sensor crop for 4K are just bonuses.

    sudopera reacted to Jonesy Jones in Questions for NAB 2017 Exhibitors   
    NAB 2017 is just under a month away, and I'll have the opportunity to be there again this year. Really looking forward to it. 
    If you are not able to make it and have some questions you'd like me to ask specific companies or exhibitors I'd be more than happy to do so for you. In the past I've only been there for the first 2 days of the show. This year I'll be there the entire week, so I'll have plenty of time.
    We've got nearly a month to come up with questions, so add to the list as they come to your mind. And of course, I'll post all answers and responses here on EOSHD as I get them from the vendors. 
    Cool.

    To be fair that woman does have red hair, so her accurate skin tone is probably pasty white or a little rosy... so pink is not the worst choice there.

    This is why I don't shoot v log , you get so tweeked up correcting it back to look just normal , them you apply the grade to get the look you want , now you are massively tweeked up , then just say you need to tweek a single colour on a door or wall and next you are now hugely massive tweeked up and you start to break up the image codec ....so I shoot natural profile always , saturation -5 , contrast -5 , and it all works fine for me that way . I always try get it looking good in camera , don't crush the blacks , and I shoot Pannys warmer at 4000k not 3200k , that helps a lot on the skin tones

    This is like having a brand new, very hot girlfriend, and all your mates banging on your door asking what she's like. I'd be tempted to disappear for a week and field questions once the fiery flushes of first love have begun to simmer down.

    No lock-ups with the adapter yet but please wait and see. Very early days! The AF is good in stills mode with the adapter but nowhere near as good as with the Panasonic and Olympus lenses, which are lightning fast.
    The anamorphic mode on the GH5 is a resolution feast... Seriously nice. I will be putting my anamorphic lenses on it, and with a 2x lens if you kept the vertical resolution as high as it comes off the card and did the de-squeeze by stretching 2x horizontally you end up with a 10K frame

    sudopera got a reaction from wolf33d in C-LOG coming to 5D mk IV   
    So potential 5D customers that are more interested in video now matter all of a sudden, maybe the sales are not going so good with the stills crowd.
    It seems to me that Canon relies to much on fanboyism, like old wars Canon vs Nikon, but in my opinion new generations have much less brand loyalty. For me, best example of this was NX1, yes maybe Samsung didn't sell enough units to stay in business, but just look how many forum members here own them and do some great work. All those guys weren't afraid to switch to a new player in camera business because they knew they are getting a very capable camera for a good price, and it can serve them well for a few more years without a problem.
    Now there is Fuji XT2 that shoots 4K video and probably has even better colors (IMO) than Canon straight out of camera, and with those great picture profiles you even have the option to create different moods in camera without much grading, for a fast turnaround. And also lets not forget best looking JPEG stills straight out of camera in the business.
    On the stills side of things, lets say I want to buy FF DSLR in that price range, why would I go for 5D IV, when there is Nikon D810 with still better DR, more than enough resolution and lower price point.
    Also, switching glass is easier than ever these days when you have all those Sigmas now that are even better in some cases than their Canikon counterparts, but are much more affordable.
    I really hope that they are feeling the breath of competitors down their neck, because who wouldn't go back to Canon if they do things right for us video guys in the future.

    Nice grade!  I'm feeling more Sepia tones myself, but this looks damn fine   Most compressed images are pretty bad when you look too closely.  I generally just use the phone and TV test.  If it looks good there...I'm covered.

    Right, but the 4K is long form gop, correct? Am I also correct that there is no All-I at all at launch... not even 1080 8bit 4:20?
    Dont get me wrong this camera is a beast at launch and I am seriously considering using my BH credit to buy one, but with the All-I in 4K and 1080p... this could be an epic camera at that price point. 
    I am really excited to hear your first impression review, Andrew. Please post lots of updates. It doesn't start shipping from BH until the 30th, so that extra week should really shed a shit load of light on this camera!!!

    Of course, the "chip on the shoulder" is the exact reason why this place has more authenticity than others and feels more real. 
    Its why the articles that do appear actually are entertaining and don't feel like  slogging through some PR brochure.
    Its why the forum has some juice behind it.
    Its not self censored for safe or broad corporate appeal. I, for one, appreciate that, and the culture it allows, if nothing else.

    https://www.slashcam.de/artikel/Test/Panasonic-GH5---8-Bit--10-Bit--4-2-2--V-Log-L---alles-OK--.html
    Next part of the Slashcam review, testing 8bit vs 10bit and V-Log L.
    Summary:
    They say there is some issues how NLEs interpret the white point and black point of the footage
    In Premiere Pro CC neither 8bit nor 10bit fit to the whitepaper from Panasonic.
    In Media Player Classic - Home Cinema the files look exactly the same
    In Davinci Resolve under OSX the files are different again, even in comparison to Premiere Pro on Windows
    In FinalCut X the files are practically identical but they can't really judge the white and black point because it gives % instead of values Latitude for grading with V Log is, as expected, better with the 10bit material than the 8bit. A lot less posterization when bending the image. They think both Adobe and Blackmagic have to fix compatibility within their software to really make the most out of the footage and be able to actually judge the 10bit V Log of the GH5

    My problem is that the poster is accusing Panasonic of swindling the public, which is unverifiable. Same goes for those accusing Panasonic of withholding h265 out of pure greed. All these accusations are completely without any foundation. If anything, I think you should be pointing the finger at other manufacturers, not Panasonic, for not offering features like anamorphic, swiveling 1620k dot LCD, 3680k dot EVF with 0.76x magnification, wave form monitors, vector scopes, dual card slots, USB-C, Bluetooth, high bit rates, 4K 60p, etc in their consumer cameras...

    Commander Reid, following your dispatches all these years has been like visiting the front lines of the DSLR community where shooting truly magical cinematic images is within our grasp. You were the first one to show it was possible to mount vintage LOMO anamorphic lenses on a GH2 and how to hack the camera. That changed my world. I quit my day job, bought a GH2 from Andrew via Japan, and went out and made a feature film with LOMOs that is now coming out worldwide on March 20. Yep, that's a plug for the film, but it's also a testament to what Andrew has started and achieved here. You'll find him thanked in the credits. Can't wait to get my GH5 and get on with the next film.
