    First misconception I see is that "not having a 4:3 shooting mode means you are loosing resolution if you shoot 16:9 because you crop it later". You aren't, in fact. If you do the pixel math you'll find that either way, you are cropping the same amount to reach your desired aspect ratio, the only difference is one is being cropped by the camera to create the 4:3 and the other you are cropping in post.

    But if you use the GH5/5S you do lose resolution if you shoot 16:9 and crop in post, also the 4:3 anamorphic modes on the GH4/5/5S have a taller pixelheight  than the 16:9 mode

    The forehead is most in focus, which means, erm.....

    ....the tonal shifts seem deeper and smoother than regular GH5, but who knows, that could just be better grading. 

    Dual ISO seems the most likely, with RAW a big stretch but fun to consider! 

    I do think it’s a new camera AND a firmware upgrade, with the “new” camera probably receiving something a little extra, like the GH4R did. 

    maybe he's hinting @ a 12bit 4:4:4 codec :scream:

    As you can see, sony files use roughly IRE from 10 to 109, so approximately 230ish values in 8 bit. It 10 bit it would be 950ish values which would give better tonality than GH5 Vlog files.

    remember right now the current alpha series cameras still don't output 10bit throught the HDMI only 8bit.. but that may change in the future if they decide not to pull a "canon"(by protecting their cinemaline)

  4. @wildrym Aaah I see... No you're right, that's why it's called V-Log L, L stands for light. I read on PV some rumors that the Varicam people weren't too happy about giving a consumercamera the full flegded V-log, so now we're stuck with a half assed Log profile. I'm hoping the Hybrid Log Gamma update coming in the summer will be better optimized , eliminating the need for V-log L.

    So, to my understanding, less "shades" are recorded compared to full swing, which is quite disapointing


    I don't think V-log records less "shades" than the other profiles, probably more like that everything(what the sensor is able to capture) is being compressed between 20 and 80IRE

    Luke, does the GH5 in Vlog encode superwhite (i.e. 100-109 IRE) or are the highlights clipped at 100 IRE ?





    It clips at 80 in the GH4 an I remember highlights also being clipped at 80 in V-Log in the DVX200, so I guess it will be similar for the GH5

  7. panasonic came with a uhd premium certified flatscreen tv earlier this year, looking at the specs needed for the certification 10 bit color up to 12 bit, wide color gamut rec2020, HDR etc.. and with the rumored early 2017 release, a GH5 with10 bit 422 internal seems more plausible. I think Panasonic wants to sell these tv screens more than they want to protect their high end cine line imo.
