    canonlyme got a reaction from Tim Sewell in GX80 in 2020? Graded AVCHD 24mbit 24p 28mbit 60p!   
    I know this is probably not anywhere close to the real quality, but if anyone wants to watch the video on a phone i shared it on instagram. Feel free to have a look or if you want high quality screengrabs tell me or alternatively I can upload it to vimeo.

    It's a blazing lens. Glorious. Still totally undervalued. I got my Canon EF version for £200. The AF even works well on the Fringer Nikon Z adapter (pictured below) for stills. Not so much video as the AF motors are clunky and old, very noisy... Optically though, it's glorious.

    I cut together GH5 and G85 footage all the time.  No worries from me.  It works fine.

    I also use the GX85 as a b-cam / backup to my GH5S.  Works really well.  Gives me access to IBIS too!

    The image is very good.  It's feature-packed.  Obviously where it lacks is in overall ergonomics and usability as it's a little compact thing, and thus a bit fiddly.  But I can squeeze it into awkward places, carry it on hikes and trips, and throw it into my camera bag as a virtually weight-free backup body.  Awesome.

    Just an experiment really. I had a visible light cut filter for my lens and wanted to shoot the piece only in infrared wavelength
    Also had memories of taking out the AA filter from the 5D3 back in the day which let some more IR into the image, when mixed with normal light it gives you a nice warmth to certain colours and brings up the shadows.

    Awesome thread! For a camera this size it has very good ergos I must say. So in its own right, it is one of the coolest cameras for the cinematic moments on the fly. Almost a 4k pocket cinema like Andrew wrote in his review. It only lacks in super low light with mushy noise reduction and high light roll off for the perfect perfect "cinematic image". I think it produces a "rec709 cinema image" if one can say that.:) @Andrew Reid Hallo Andrew, like the posters before me, I would enjoy to see your IR footage with this camera. Btw, the black and white image is nice in L Monochrom, with extreme color temperature  and a bit of Davinci.

    Has anybody tried taking the IR cut filter out of their GX85 yet
    I did for the EOSHD low budget camera challenge
    I broke mine but second attempt went well on a body I found for under £200.
    Should really share that footage some day

    Those little Panasonics are great. I had the GX7 for years and later on had the G80/85 which is also really quite small and light. I found them to have particularly good images in woodland type areas. Nice shots, well done!

    Of course, I will share the video. I agree with you. Though with AVCHD I did not see my image break apart nearly as fast as I am used to. But knowing the noise level I also tried overexposing 1 or 2 stops, so I exposed to the right while still trying to fill the histogram. 
     
    Thanks Indeed I made a vibrance note, because it is a great way to increase the look without going to far. I used a key to pick the less saturated part, skipped the skin tones and desaturated the rest.

    Hey Guys,

    Since starting in this forum I progressed from the GX80 to buying a Pocket 4k which I use for all documentary shoots and trying to built a showreel. 
    Meanwhile, the non rigged out GX80 is way easier to take on trips and fun shoots and I still think it is one of the most underrated cameras in terms of price/performance.

    For the last trip to Loen in Norway (where a rock falling into the lake caused a 70m wave extinguishing to villages in early 1900), I took the gx80. Normally I shoot CINE D with all settings around -2, but this time I decided to shoot a dialed down natural, and furthermore I heard on youtube that AVCHD supposedly holds up way better to grading. So I tested it and used the internal noise reduction and grain from davinci. 

    What do you think? I am quite pleased with what I can get out of the 24mbit files, even with several nodes, vignettes etc. The opinion is well established that the Full HD on the gx80 seemed to look softer than on the g85 or g7. Even the slow-mo to me looks way better than what I am used to from the 24mbit 60p in mp4. 
    Way easier to edit than 4k as well and easy on the storage. 

    At 250 Dollars or Euros used, often including a lens, I think this camera is still a steal, especially for people in the mft ecosystem who need a second/third camera. In my backpocket I had a tascam dr05 to record audio and a short interview with a habitant of one of those villages.

    @canonlyme GX85 produces a great image if graded or with right in camera look. I don´t like the HD as much as from G7 or G6, with a bit too much aliasing to my taste. In super low light noise reduction makes everything mushy. Other than that great camera and my to go little film friend. Now, if it´s ok for you to share your video, would be very cool to see your colors fly in motion.:) cheers

    I can fully agree - both GX80 and G80 seem to be great B-cams or a 'throw-it-in-your-backpack' alternatives, which video creators didn't really notice.
    IMHO, they could be easily intercut with GHx series and I doubt anyone would notice.
    I like your results very much, they look quite similar to what GHAlex offers - soft, yet vibrant and natural look.
    Congrats!

    Just a note for G80/G85 and GX80/GX85 users:
    (this may be of interest to you, @canonlyme)
    Consider disabling IBIS while shooting anamorphic.
     
    Recently I took a look at my short video tests and noticed that there is a lot of swaying going on in them.
    At first I thought that rolling shutter was to blame, but after further tests I concluded that this swaying has nothing to do with fast pans and it's visible even during some subtle movement.
     
    Turns out IBIS in G85 doesn't like scopes.

    I've tried the 4:3 4K Photo Mode with anamorphics on my G80/G85 (which shares many features with GX80/GX85) and, to be honest, I got better results when shooting standard 16:9 4K 24fps video.
    Rolling Shutter in 4K Photo Mode is worse than in a regular video mode, IBIS doesn't seem to work that good, you can shoot only in 30fps and there is no Cine-D.
    Sure, I get even more cropped image and I do have to crop out a lot of pixels, but it works for me.

    OK, well I've got a solution for you.
    The live view to a phone works while recording the burst.
    So your options are to use the free Panasonic Image App on your phone as a monitor or use an app like Gmonitor (Android or iOS) which is about $5 and is a more dedicated monitor app for showing the live stream.
    There is some lag but it is actually pretty marginal and definitely usable.
    Far, far more usable than the non-functioning HDMI port.
