Hello all, new to the forum and just wanted to ask a quick question before I ask a hundred more.  Whats your favorite MFT macro lens for the GH5?

Thanks for any tips. 

I always, on every system, shot macro with manual focus so I would get a lens that has good manual focus and adapt, i would totally not get anything with focus-by-wire.

So basically save my cash and keep doing it the way I've always done it.  Perfect. I thought maybe they were something ground breaking.

Well the best lens to buy in my opinion is the Olympus 60mm f2.8 for Marco. And it does AF. But yeah for best results you should always MF if possible. Shooting tiny things is Never going to be easy as heck, especially live things that move, or Bite!

Hi, I'm a non-happy owner of a Lumix GH5, if I want to shoot in rec.2020 with my GH5, what should I do please? What is the easiest step to do? Thanks.

This is an interesting question and I did some googling and I think it said that HLG is rec2100, but maybe I didn't understand that correctly.

Does anyone know for sure?

I recently got my GH5 (I know, I'm late to the game).  I'm quite happy with the images I'm getting with my Oly 12-40 2.8, though I I wish it was a bit more sensitive in low light like the GH5s.

I've read through the forums to piece together different advice on shooting HDR with the GH5 and the Shogun Inferno.  It would be great if someone could validate my setup or offer suggestions.

Camera settings: PS is HLG, System Frequency 59.94, Record format MOV,  Rec Quality UHD4K 10-bit 24p, 4k60p is set to 10-bit 422, Down convert off, HDMI timecode on, etc.

Shogun Inferno: ProRes 422, monitor with AtomHDR with "Camera" set to Rec2100,  Gamma set to HLG, and Gammut BT2020, +3.6 stops over SDR for scene brightness (i'm relying more on the waveform than what I see with my eye)

Exposure: depends on scene, but generally 1 stop over for less noise, and recover highlights in post, custom white balance, chip chart, blah blah

Post: Resolve 15.1, source gamma Rec2100 HLG, Target Gamma Rec2100 HLG, and Target color space Rec 2020

Post monitoring: Decklink 4K mini monitor via HDMI 2.0 to the Shogun Inferno with AtomHDR set to Camera Rec2100, HLG gamma, and bt2020 gamut, SDR +3.6 for scene brightness.  In Resolve, HDR metadata over HMDI set to on in project settings

Let me know how I could correct/improve this.  I'm new to the HDR workflow on the GH5.  Thanks!

Out if curiosity: do you prefer a fix ND filter fix or a variable ND filter for your GH5? I mean for video. Thanks

Variable ND filter also works as a circular polarizer. That means if your front is rotating it will have funny effects. The other thing is (even if your front ring is non rotating) when you start to move the camera and change the angle of source light towards lens’ front element it will have funny effects.

Does fixed ND filter have such issues? No, it does not, but it also doesn’t have a feature of circular polarizer.

My point, you need to know when to use each and why.

:) you mean run and gun

Well, that's what I am telling you above. If you point your camera to one side on a sunny day, and then move, the blue sky might be differently blue throughout the footage if variable ND is used.

It depends on what you value.

A fixed ND will mean you need to adjust the camera settings to get perfect exposure - eg, vary the ISO, shutter, or aperture.  A variable ND allows you to shoot with your preferred settings and adjust exposure with the ND.

My preference was to get a high-quality ND without the dreaded X pattern for a reasonable amount of money, and I don't mind about using shutter to adjust exposure.  Your preferences are probably different, but these are what you are prioritising when you decide.

Has anyone tested 120fps on GH5S with the latest firmware, are the issues fixed?

Also, is it still preferable to use Cine D instead of vlog for VFR?

It is preferable to use a preadjusted profile like Cine D when using 8bit. Too much post on 8bit vlog can produce colour artifacts. If using 10bit then whatever you want.

Hey everybody, what's up here in the world of cameras? Did a little fighty thingy when I had the GH5 for a sec. Threw in some curves, tested the 10bit 4k and the 180fps and and... I think I didn't touch the vlog as the weather was greyish so no need for more dynamic range. Had some kind off a speedbooster on top of it.

I don't even have an opinion on it. It worked? Didn't notice anything weird yet. You could probably happily shoot a film with the GH5 (just get a monitor for it).

Nice short!

My theory is that the latter leads to the former.. The camera is a workhorse and we probably see footage from it all the time without knowing it.  Considering how much of what we see is shot on the high end cine cameras from ARRI / RED / Canon / Sony / etc footage from a $2k camera not standing out is a pretty big achievement.

That is some damn good action! Makes me want to do another action short.
