  2. Well, I am a "long time" panasonic user and I feel like they totally shit my mind...

    They pulled out the GH5 early just to respond to the markets voice and the hype, but all the GH5S features should be included in the GH5. What was panasonics intention with this move? I will not sell my GH5 just to have the money for the GH5S. Screw you panasonic! I hope A7S III will come soon, than I trade my GH5...

    How dp you change your apperure on Sigma 18-35? Is it EF or Nikon mount? I thouth Lens Turbo doesnt have electronic contacts, so its only some manual way to change apperture.

    On a Nikon speedbooster, there is ring for change it, but what about Lens Turbo?

    I own a Canon 600D as well :) so if needed, the aperture is set on that camera. But once you have the sigma 18-35 in your collection you'll find yourself always shooting open wide.

  4. You mean the stabilisation settings? Yes, only native lenses communicate with the body (or maybe the metabones as well, not sure). It's not a big deal for me, the camera remembers your previous setting, so next time you turn it on, it just asks if the settings are still right.

    great to hear!...can you show me some example videos?

    Most of the representative stuff is still in post production but here are few examples:

    Sorry, the DR of the A7s ii is greater than that of the GH5. The A7s ii 120p crop gives you the same fov as the GH5, so that can't make it inferior to it! And the crop means no aliasing aftifacts. Vlog colors are awful. Sony colors have a lot of variants, but perhaps you couldn't figure out the menus to find the set you would like :).

    You're right with the DR, A7SII definitely got the edge! But the 2x crop is bullshit with the slowmo. If you use a speedbooster with the GH5 you get a 1.5x crop with 180fps. Also strongly disagree with your statement on the color. If you badly expose LOG no matter what brand you use, it'll be crap.

    Unfortunately yes. The GH2 with a 14-140 was acting well, but the 5DII with the Tamron 24-70 2.8 was bending just a little bit. Don't use heavy setups with it. I still love it for light setups, hard to beat it.

    Hard to keep the setup light with the 18-35 :D

    Anyway, cheers from SVK as well :)

    Would that give enough of an effect, though?

    If you want something easy to pack I'd consider something like this:


    Rat rig looks awesome, however I can see it bends with heavier setups. Does anyone have experience with it?

    Hey guys, 

    I haven't been really following this forum so thought I'd check back in with the GH5 owners.  It's almost 6 months since the release.  For those who bought the GH5, how are you liking it now?
    Did you buy it and sell it later?  Did you keep it and learn to live with its limitations?


    I got mine in march. I owned a GH4 before, so I wasn't new to pana stuff, still after the shitstorm on the forums I was pretty unconfident with my new camera and it's capabilies and was thinking about about switching to A6500. After 5 months of use, I am pretty confident not to switch. 

    The DR is not really improoved, but still you get a solid slow mo (with a cheap mitakon speedbooster you only have 1.5x crop, while the A7SII crops even more in 120fps mode), the battery is awesome, the ergonomics feels okay, and you get a 4:3 full sensor readout. IMO this is really a big deal, i found myself using this even without anamorphic lenses, I can reframe any shot. 4K 60fps is awesome, but the 10bit codec sucks. IBIS saves my powers, no need for tripods or shoulder rigs while running around on the field. The Like709 will become your favourite, i swear this is the best picture profile i ever used (not counting the logs).

    If you watch any review on the YT, they will tell you exactly the same. So if you don't need propper AF (like the A6500 have), get a gh5, get a cheap speedbooster, get some vintage lenses and unleash your creativity.

    @funkyou86 I use the Rectilux HCDNA, can not recommend it enough! It has lived on my Bolex since day 1 and will probably never come of. Real good engineering, feels like and behaves like a tank - not a fragile peace of glass :) 

    Sorry if it's an inappropriate question, but how much does your rig worth now with th HCDNA?

    I had a Moller 19/1.5x in the past, which was a focus-trough. The image and the flares were similar to 16/32/1.5x but the lens was much smaller and was not the best with focusing to infinity. That lens trends for around 700 to 900 eur, depending on the condition.

    I really adore the look and feel of the 1.5x lenses so I'm thinking about reinvesting some dosh to it :D Does the 32/16/1.5x perform according to his price?

    I never used a speedbooster, So as i can find online, if i understand correctly, If a lens intended for 35mm film or similarly-sized "full frame" camera sensors is connected to a camera with a Micro Four Thirds-sized sensor, it would project an image larger than the Micro Four Thirds sensor was built to accept.

    My vacation is just the first step, then this camera will be used for work ! 

    This video has all the answers for you :) + bonus video about sensor sizes.

    Adobe Audition is the obvious solution if you have Premier pro as you can work via dynamic link. If you are not signed up the Adobe suite licence then there are quite a few good standalone options which others will no doubt chip in with. I've not got any reason to use anything other than Audition though.

    After several years of working with Logic and other DAWs I found Audition not so user friendly (but this is only my personal opinion, audition is a great piece of SW) , so I compose the sounds in premiere, export the OMF, import the OMF in to DAW and mix it there.
