More GH5 skin tones to magnify 5000 percent because that's what clients really want😂😂I will say his model is quite extraordinary!

My favourite part is the part where I get to hold hands with her through the screen... twice!

@Fredrik Lyhne...would very much appreciate a few words of your impression of the Leica 12-60 when you've had some time with it...I already have the 12-60 but in the US where my camera will come from, they don't offer the Kit you bought...won't have my GH5 for another couple of months but bought this lens specially for the GH5...thanks in advance and feel free to PM if you prefer...

Sure, I was actually considering asking you the same thing, but then mine suddenly arrived :) So you have the lens but no m43 camera at the moment? 

I will be comparing it to my 12-35mm and other Pana Leica primes, 12mm, 15mm, 25 and 42,5mm and see if I can put something together. I leave for work on Monday and will be away for two and half weeks, but I will try to find time to do some light testing in the weekend. Is there anything special you had in mind?

Keep in mind though, you're a Varicam user, I'm just an enthusiast :)

I can post in this thread and tag you?

I've realised that when I turn IBIS on with the option E-stabilization, that there is a fair amount of cropping going on. In the manual says this 'might induce cropping', so that means it doesn't happen to anyone. Does this happen because I use non-compatible lenses with a Speed Booster? I've tried setting a different focal length as the input, but it doesn't make any difference.

Also, the anti-shake stabilzation with the hand symbol, actually does seem to work and without any additional crop. Does it matter which focal length I set for input for the anti-shake stabilization?

Hi , can you tell me is SanDisk 128GB 95MB/s - SDXC is good for GH5 50p 60p recording? Thanks

Yes it should be. I'm using 64 GB cards with a 60 MB/s write speed and it works fine.

Yes I know that the card is 95MB/s   and the camera records at  150 Mbit/s so  totaly different ,  but I asked all that tested GH5 nobody replied so far. I think it's more marketing that you need to buy minimum 150MB/s or 300MB/s,  but maybe I am wrong

With the summer update, and if you're going to record 400 Mbp/s ALL-I, then a 60MB/s card will just be barely enough. With the 95MB/s card you're absolutely good to go for every recording mode.

Does anyone know the base / native ISO of the GH5 yet? I read mixed information. Some say it's ISO 200. The manual says that V-LOG shoots at ISO 400 at minimum. And some websites claim it's either 400 or even 800.

Anyone who knows this for sure?

It works the same way on the G85, some cropping when E-stabilization is activated. I'd suspect, based on how E-stabilization works by sensor cropping, it would do this with all lenses. 

To be honest, I haven't seen a significant difference between IBIS2 and then adding E-stabilization on top of that. It may work differently on the GH5.

Adorama just shipped my GH5 overnight. It will get here (US, West Coast) by 10AM in the morning!

Congrats! When I've ordered newly released cameras from Best Buy, they too shipped the camera the night before the release date so as to arrive on the release date. B&H did not do that (and I ordered within 2 minutes of when it first went up for preorder at B&H). :(

https://www.slashcam.de/artikel/Ratgeber/Panasonic-GH5---Like709-Profil-das-bessere--und-kostenlose--V-Log-.html

Another (german) article from Slashcam, this time about V-Log L and how good it fills the 10bit color depth on the GH5. Due to compatibility to V-Log on VariCam, the V-Log L apparently only uses ~545 of the available color values (so slightly more than 9 out of 10bit) in contrast to other profiles.They say Like709 is a very interesting alternative.

The colours are different and possibly more pleasing than the other profiles. The "knee" is adjustable (highlight rolloff) so there's the potential for retaining more dynamic range than the standard profiles. Plus you get to use all of the 1024 bits, whereas V-Log is truncated.

But, to date, nobody has shown comparisons extensive enough to draw any solid conclusions on colour and dynamic range. There is a handful of tantalising vids on YouTube that merely hint at its potential.

Can someone explain to me what shooting in Like709 bascially does? I don't quite understand it.

At several differnt location I have been told by people who had the prototype cameras that Like709 was the way to go unless I was recording to an external recorder, then V Log L.

Question, Slashcam.de has shown that VLog on the GH5 is truncated so has only half the expeted bits depth . Like709 is not supposed to be truncated. Is the external VLog feed truncated?
