“The Middle Path”: A Lumix GH5s Short

Don't forget about the highlight roll off man...in my opinion it's more valuable than the low light.  Although at T4-5.6 that will be big for you as well.


Exactly, that extra dynamic range being put into the highlight roll off is what gives the Arri Alexas their famous magic mojo

Kai at CVP is claiming no increase in DR - however it wasn't a great test he did 


Well Kai is an entertainer/presenter, not a real hard core camera nerdy geek!

And he is focused on stills, not cinema. So always take an inch pinch of salt any time he talks about a non-stills subject matter.

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.

From what I understand the omission of IBIS was necessary for the inclusion of Dual ISO

I wonder what exactly is the technical conflict between those two which means they can't be included together at once? 

And will they be in the future, is this a hurdle that can be overcome on a future camera?

Lol, if I do I won't outsource grading.

Luke, people are out of likes for today. They have been throwing around with it today because of the GH5Ss´ launch day today! So maybe come back a bit later :)

Awesome footage despite not being graded by you. Congratulations!

I think it's the juice needed to give each photosite 2x native ISOs

Sean Robinson is saying they conservatively estimate a 1-1/2 stop increase in low light performance over the GH5.

That is, add a f/1.2 aperture coupled to any proper adapter and you'll basically have an equivalent low light performance similar to the most setups over there:

i guess the point might be more addressed to AF range @ low light as for instance. Or as Luke said, the camera sensor behavior on highlights roll off. More than anything else. Probably a better cinema camera by then. 

 

Just my 2 cents though (E :-)

Really enjoyed your short @Neumann Films, loved the robot and the retro style intro. 

A lot of the shots certainly demonstrated improved highlight roll off and the “motion cadence” felt a little more film like. Maybe it was the aesthetic through that lens you were using. The glass does have some effect to the look of motion, I feel. 

I’m with you on the grading, especially the shots with the scientist guy. 

Onto the camera itself - many of us are annoyed st the lack of IBIS, but Panasonic have created a mini cinema machine that costs very little. Amazing really.

Will I get it? I’m not sure, I don’t think I need it. I would miss IBIS hugely, and it is definitely a sticking point to lose one of the GH5’s defining features.

Why not have both? For $4300 you can have 2 cameras, each with a different set of strengths. 

@Neumann Films, what is the top anamorphic resolution for this camera. That part of it was really throwing me off with the screen grabs you posted. Does this new cam match the anamorphic res of the GH5?
