Vesku Posted March 15, 2016 Share Posted March 15, 2016 When I watch TV programs with very low bitrate there is less banding in skies than in GH4 100 Mbs 4k files. I think 4:2:0 is not limiting color steps, it just reduces color resolution. If I render a photo slideshow in 8bit 4:2:0 video there is no banding. Samples: http://***URL removed***/forums/post/57394235 Has the Panasonic codec less "colors" than others? Or is there a differences in color channels? Does the sharpen 0 cause banding? How about contrast setting? I have heard that Panasonic cameras records green colors better than other cameras but has difficulties in skin tones (reds) and skies. GH4 renders nature greens beautifully and sharply. Also the red "spill" or spread over real details is minimal in GH4. A friend said that his Nikon makes less banding in sky than GH4. It is impossible to know what camera makers do when they down scale their sensors and tries to get small enough data rate for video. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
