tomsemiterrific Posted January 24, 2017 Share Posted January 24, 2017 This is a post for ANDREW REID---or anyone else who cares to comment. I recall in a recent article of yours on eoshd.com you said something to the effect that that Panasonic has horrid color, analogous to Sony. That may not be the adjective you used, but it was something quite analogous. A statement like this compels me to ask: 1. If you think that about Panasonic color why are you interested in buying the GH5?---Especially since you have pretty much rejected the feature rich Sony mirrorless cams for pretty much the same reason--poor color. 2. Are you interested because you think Panasonic's color science will see an improvement with the GH5? Or because you think you can get what you want with V-Log is post processing? I'm not trying to do a "gotcha" in asking this. I am seriously interested in the GH5, but agree with you 100% on Sony color and the over all "look." So, in buying the GH5 I don't want to buy another Sony I'm unhappy with just for other features...and a lighter set up (which I would love). The footage I see from Griffin looks fine, yet very little information is forthcoming from him about how he achieved the end result---just how much post production did it take? Did he shoot this in V-log, if so what LUTs did he use, etc. So, right now I'm on the fence. I really love the Canon color--and the EOSHD C-Log works a treat with the 1DX mk II. I love the color of the XC-15 and how well it matches the C300 Mk II. Cameras come and go, but this trio stays with me. Should I buy the GH5 for run and gun?? Or is there ever hope that Canon will put out a proper mirrorless that is feature rich---such as an XC-15 with three levels of ND, an APS-C sensor, internal stabilization, and interchangeable EF and EF-S lenses? Or will Hell freeze over before that happens? Enquiring minds want to know. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
