@Sage How does Data Level impact the conversion, should it be left at video or full throughout the Davinci path (Media tab -> clip attributes, Project Settings -> Video monitoring, Deliver -> Advanced settings )? 

You'll want them at Auto, and Video for the Project settings. The exception is for VLog wrapped in ProRes or DNxHD - these clips should be set to full (if the ProRes PRE is not used), because the correct Full flagging is hidden in a Video level codec

I am using DNxHD. Does this mean I could either use ProRes PRE or simply keep the levels set to full throughout the video?
Or you'd recommend to use Auto at Clip Attributes in in Edit tab, apply ProRes PRE in Color tab. In Project Settings, under Video Monitoring -> Data levels Video, and eventually in Deliver tab again Video? The Auto option is only available in Deliver tab and in Edit tab under Clip attributes.

Yep, either way will do. You can keep those both at auto - or set clip attributes to Full (when not using the PRE)

Hi, I have the GH5 which has been updated with the latest update. I shoot only at 50p in UHD. I would like to know if I can enable the HDR but I don't think it is possible. I have a TV with HDR.

Some suggestions please:

1) In your opinion, is it better to set my GH5 with rec709 or YUV 420 rec2020?

2) Is it better I shoot at rec2020 with my GH5 and I edit at rec2020 with Edius 9?
Thank you for some info.

Hi, could you clear some worrires please? I shoot with GH5 only at 50p Pal System.
Do you get a better UHD video by shooting in MP4 LPCM or MOV? They are options to choose in Rec format.

Then,
I'm noticing in HDMI recording output/Bit mode 4K/50p I have the option to activate 4:2:2 10bit.
But I've always known that you can shoot in 4:2:2 only at 25p. What does it happen if I enable 4: 2: 2 10bit and I shoot at 50p?

Then:
I don't see "Color space" on the GH5 Menu. Could you tell me where it is precisely?
Thanks a lot for clearing up.

I always wanted to get the DMW-XLR1 microphone adapter, however, the controls are on the LEFT side.
I work from the RIGHT side.

Anyone try the Lanparte extension cable for the DMW-XLR1 microphone adapter?
Suppossedly the Canon OC-3 external flash cable adapter works also?

These would be great, if they work, allowing you to mount how you wanted, and NOT on the hot shoe mount of the camera body.

MP4 HEVC for your panasonic hdr tv is 25p only.

When you say Rec2020 do you mean the HLG Colour Style? That is only available at 25p, not 50p.

For editing in post at 50p and you want the most dynamic range then CineD is good, then add a post LUT from Eoshd or LeemingLutPro.

LPCM MP4 and MOV are the same files, different "container". No difference. Use LPCM if using PC. 

HDMI recording mode refers to sending the signal out the HDMI socket to an external recorder. That is the only way you can get 10bit at 50p.

Colour space is called "photo style" in the movie menu, page 1.

Yeah but once you have the levels, switches set the way you want them how often do you really need to access it? You aren't going to change anything when you are rolling I would think.

I am left handed, so most stuff to me is ass backwards anyways LoL. 😬

Why not just display the microphone level on the recording screen?

Hmm, I think that is actually being performed as is set up.

I need to play with the GH5 rig some more.

My biggest problem is that I bounce around from the X-T2 rig, and the GH5 rig, hard to keep up sometimes.

Anywho, family Thanksgiving is beckoning, later...

Happy Thanksgiving to EVERYONE!

Hi, I have GH5 with the latest update. I need to shoot in 4K 50p and HDR. I know it is impossible, do I have to change my GH5 with another camera or is there some external devices that allow to rec in HDR? Could it be possible with the next update? Thanks for some info.
