"I've uploaded way more Panasonic videos than Fuji - not because the image quality of the G85 is better, but because it is so much easier to just pick up and start shooting video." Jonpais When you're shooting a feature or a commercial or any other narrative form, how the camera handles....the interfaces for selecting images...accessing menus....manually controlling the camera etc. is everything...and the GH5 comes in squarely, after purely dedicated cinema cameras...and when you're chasing beauty light with 20 min to go, that counts for more anything else does....and of course reliability...we are already into a ridiculous realm in terms of image even in sub $1000 cameras...the reality is it's no longer about the camera, but a lot more about the discussion of the camera!....of course I'm equally guilty of that.... Image quality doesn't exist in a vacuum: we just want the camera to get out of our way so we can take pictures. With the Lumix cameras, I can shoot and the camera is like an extension of myself. The Fuji's kind of a hassle: I've got to drag along a tripod, or only use small lenses on a gimbal, and at the moment, I've only got one small lens, the 35mm f/2. We should all be focussing more on our craft, and less on gear. Or at least not attacking somebody because they use Canon or Sony or Nikon or whatever. I stopped going to Cinema 5D for information a while back, and if it weren't for Andrew's post, I would never have read them again. I often asked myself why I'm listening to certain online reviewers talking about lighting or sound or photography, when meanwhile, the lighting and sound of some of those videos is atrocious. I'm a video shooter, I don't know of any video shooters I admire posting free online tutorials, so I've been watching a lot of Jason Lanier's videos, pretty inspirational.
