This video proves that GH5 "S" is not only a low light camera, but a lowlight sea MONSTER. It also works underwater, as the scene gives us obvious clues to this feature. Also the use of boats sug

Let's ruthlessly dissect and analyze Neumann's first comment of 2018: First of all, let's look into his first sentence, why did he write "Happy New Years" and not the more common "Happy New Year"

I'll make sure to do a side by side with the UM46K when I get the GH5s.

About the IBIS:

- I even already mocked about the heat issue, and it really could exist. But (as least in my mind, that could easlily be wrong) to scan a 20mp sensor in 60fps probably would generate more heat in the sensor than a 10mp one? Not ot even mention the processing to downsample a 20mp sensor to 4k in real time - in theory, the 10mp sensor probably will have a 1:1 scan, hence less work in the chipset for the encoding.

- The elephant in the room is that the A7SIII will probably have IBIS, and 4kp60 too. For a not too much bigger price - and if Sony puts the A9 autofocus system and tweaks their color science (the A7RIII clips already looks better in color terms, I think), a lot of people could wait.

Wrote up a blog post sharing my thoughts about the Panasonic GH5S, and my excitement about it being the first stills camera with true timecode capabilities:

GH5 doesn´t have TC? Edit: Got it now:) Cheers

I don’t know, it seems like they should have called it EVA-1 instead of GH5s. 

No IBIS is a bummer for me, so even if it had Raw or ProRes, I have no interest in it.

But again, just to be clear, I’m sure it will be an awesome camera capable of amazing images. 

That might have made it a bit easy to confuse with the, erm... EVA-1.

Yeah, before the GH5 was even announced I was already hoping they'd make a stills focused GH5 and then a cinema range one called VC5 (VariCam5). I guess instead they released the hybrid GH5, then the stills GH5: G9 and now the GH5S. Bit weird. But ok.

True. True. (Just personally I don't care for fullframe or getting into another ecosystem (lenses)).

High bitrate 10bit h.264 is practically the same as ProRes

Yeah but you need a lot more computing power to work with them. With ProRes files, my cheap Mac cuts right through them. 

Storage is cheap.

Hell the 1080p ProRes Jon was recording from his G85 to the BMVA looks as good as any 4K I’ve seen from the GH5.

I transcode to virtually lossless ProRes before editing my 400Mbps ALL-Intra clips. It's no big deal. The footage looks awesome. But yeah, even on my maxed-out 2017 27" iMac, it'll drop frames if I try to edit the native GH5 files (after adding a camera LUT anyhow).

So what's the headline feature here? According to @IronFilm, it's TC. For me, it's the new sensor. And since I use lights, being able to shoot at ISO 3200 and beyond is a nothing burger to me. If however, skin tones and noise are significantly better than they already are with the GH5 at ISO 400-800, that might sway me.
