    Panasonic GH6

    Using V-Log and internal ProRes, the amount of noise reduction is by far the least I've seen on any Lumix camera, especially chroma NR. Which also means that it outperforms the S Series when it comes to capturing chroma detail below middle gray (important for skin, foliage etc). On the S Series I can achieve the same using external BRAW, but that comes with a culprit: strong sharpening and spatial luma filtering. Also I really don't think the second video was shot using V-Log at all, the sharpening halos on the S5 footage alone are a huge give away of using a regular sRGB/Rec709 profile with standard settings, or someone played around with the NR/sharpening settings to manipulate the outcome. The S5 shooting V-Log with default settings doesn't show any sharpening artefacts.

    1st Not using sRGB/Rec709 profiles here 2nd Used standard settings? Sharpening/NR are super aggressive with standard settings with Rec709 profiles, which is definitely visible in your Video. Looks like when I push NR all the way up in V-Log, super mushy. 3rd With V-Log the amount of noise reduction by default is super low, much lower than on the S series line up as well. There's tons of Chroma detail even in shadows which isn't really the case on the S series and other Lumix cameras.

    Hoping for an update to the GH6 for that 🙂 Thankfully the GH5 II also barely has any NR, so the image won't be as mushy as on the GH5s or A7sIII/FX3.

    There's way less NR on the GH6 than on the S1H even when shooting V-Log and even less so when shooting ProRes. Really confused about the experiences here, was NR set to lowest (0) 😅

    Yes, the oversharpening is definitely showing with every kind of lens I tried. I really hope for a lower sharpening setting with a newer firmware update. Already talked to Panasonic about this issue. These slashcam charts really show how bad it is GH5 II GH6 The GH6 looks quite crispy despite the lens I'm using. Not great, especially with skin, hair, foliage etc.
  6. Not a bad idea. With ProRes RAW all the nasty internal processing is gone. Internal footage is heavily oversharpened and has barely any chroma detail.

    The GH6 is my favorite MFT camera atm. Best processing and color science to me and already asked Panasonic Lumix engineers for an optional Sharpening OFF (maybe -1 sharpening like the S1H did with NR). To be fair no other MFT cameras but the GH5 II was completely sharpening free and maybe the BMD P4K with CDNG before BRAW became a thing but had heavy Gen 4 color science flaws like gamut clipping. The S series line up is a bit cleaner, perfect for greenscreen work but color science on the GH6 is definitely better. The X-H2S doesn't work for me with its heavy chroma filtering, especially in dark areas, but also heavy oversharpening.
  8. Lack of sharpening gave it a really smooth image and color science was pretty good. But the codec is something I never want to deal with in my live again. 😭

    Fuji X-H2S

    Very similar to S1H in the test footage I got. But too oversharpened and too much chroma filtering, especially, but not limited to, in darker areas. With ProRes RAW this camera looks fantastic though. So it's just a processing issue.
  10. No such issues with Log and proper display conversions though, ever saw films shot on ARRI? Poor dude here looks like his liver is failing and he's dealing with a heavy sunburn. Not flattering at all. Which actually reminds me of Gen 4 Blackmagic footage where lots of work in post was necessary to get skin to look right, also a rather flat Rec709 gamma with gamut clipping issues. BMD Gen 5 Film fixed these issues.
  11. Quite average look to me. Heavily baked looking skin tones with barely any definition, same with the foliage. Looks like your standard Rec709 flat profile with contrast and Lut added. I'm sure with HLG and a Log conversion (scene referred), results will be great though. Can do some tests in September. The Sensor is clearly capable, up to 8K75p! I wonder if this camera had Cinelike D2, which is the only Rec709 profile on Panasonic cameras which doesn't mess with skin.
  12. Impossible to recreate that hasn't been there in the first place with just a lut, some good tracking and color grading skills are necessary to create the illusion of chroma detail/tonality on Fuji cameras. Sad to see the issue still hasn't been fixed since the X-T3. I also think it's chroma noise reduction related as well, looks like there are tons of spatial chroma filtering applied.
  13. If the A7s3 came with the processing of the FX6 and at least some of its video-related features, there would be no more reason to get any Panasonic nor Blackmagic camera let alone the FX6 at all. 😄 The GH4 was so hard to deal with, shot internally in 8 Bit V-Log L, the banding was insane. Did some selective debanding on some areas to fix it. I wish I had an external recorder back then. The GH5 after was much cleaner but was way oversharpened, had ghosting issues caused by heavy temporal filtering (fixed in mid 2017 via firmware) and seemed to have less DR to me, still kept it until the Pocket 4K came out which was later ruined with BRAW and its quite heavy spatial filtering and sharpening, my original P4K sadly died and had to be replaced with a model that didn't support earlier firmwares. 😭 Since then I've been using the Pocket 6K and later S1H with external BRAW are okish, the higher resolution compensates for the heavy filtering to a certain degree. My new GH6 outperforms both when it comes to texture with its internal ProRes recording, the image basically looks like RAW, almost unfiltered. I love it and used it as my A-camera on my last shoot. 🙂
  14. How is this interesting? The FX3 and A7sIII are pretty much the full frame 10 bit equivalent to a GoPro when it comes to image processing. Also usable latitude on these cameras is quite weak while the C70, which doesn't have any oversharpening nor heavy temporal filtering and therefor no smearing nor texture loss, is the best in its class and competes with the likes of the Pocket 6K (HR recovery) and Panasonic S series and even outperforms these ever so slightly with internal RAW.
