GH5 Prototype

Recommended Posts

For now they can't talk pretty much about anything at all, so I'm guessing they are not that close to final product. It seems to me that the announcement was made too early just to have a flagship model presented at Photokina and to send a message to potential customers to be patient and not run to Olympus, Sony or Fuji.

EOSHD Pro Color for Sony cameras EOSHD Pro LOG for Sony CamerasEOSHD C-LOG and Film Profiles for All Canon DSLRs

This is a very interesting development by Panasonic, however the details of the camera are far too scarce to get overly excited. 

Such as: 

1. Does it have IBIS (in 4k or just 1080 or nothing)? 

2. Can it output 4k60p 10bit over HDMI? 

3. Codec/bitrate? 

4. Dynamic range? 

5. The actual image quality itself - this is usually the pitfall of the "spec monster" cameras.

Fingers crossed that Panasonic will also announce better noise handling & DR.

As always, Panasonic announces a product that is pushing the limits of technology and listening to it's customers while Canon plays catch-up with conservative, blandly specced and overpriced products. Unfortunately, Canon will probably out sell everyone. It seems like anyone wanting to take down Canon needs to focus on three things.

1) Glass, because that's the entire reason Canon outsells everyone (lots of headway made here lately).

2) Color, because that's the number 1 reason for not wanting to switch to better specc'ed cameras (lookin' at you Sony).

3) Service, because pro photo/video people need to be taken care of when equipment breaks and they're making a living with the equipment. Canon's pro service is second to none.

I should probably just play it safe.  Also, I just fixed the "Shift" key on my laptop.  :)

I can see it now...
"(FT5 Rumor) Luke Neumann leaks that new Panasonic GH5 will have the shift key fixed!!"

Many were assuming that it would be unveiled at Photokina for an October release - I know that I was - so I think the timing of and the reasons for this press release is as you say.

of cOurse we all waNt bEtter dr and noiSe handling buT yOu can't exPect IMPROVEMENTs at the cost of price.  

 

Maybe 1.5...

What about a proper AF for video like on the A6300 or Canon dual AF or the new Olympus??

and IBIS?

Ever notice that all of them have 1 or 2 standout features but some big no nos? 

A6300 - Excellent 4k and Autofocus

Olympus - Outstanding stabilization

GH4 - Battery life and usability.

Canon - DPAF and Colour.

 

Everyone stil doesn't have everything and at the desired price point.

They did not reveal the codec, H.265 perhaps or is it too soon?

Hopefully their silence on this means they are at least considering it. Wouldnt need 200Mbps then and wouldn't need to swap SD cards so often.

The difference being that Canon "released" cameras, Panasonic"announced".

I can do it to,

Hey everyone! I would like to announce a new camera. 16K 500fps Raw for $25. My moto is to let Panasony and Canikon play catch up. To be released later ;)

I'd say, over GH4

Let's realistically presume that. Even though, the question is very pertinent and sorta wishful thinking from all of us, as well. I bet their upgrade is more based on processing data than sensor related, this time. Hence, internal 10-bit 4:2:2, [email protected], higher bitrate (even still under NDA for now). I hope to be pretty wrong on that one, though.
