“The Middle Path”: A Lumix GH5s Short

Well if it is always 9 frames that would be pretty easy to code around.

They likely didn't do extensive testing. 
I bet it varies, depending on how long it has powered down for. (this has been my experience with TC on many many many other cameras)
But if it is a consistent 9 frames, then a firmware update will indeed be the easiest thing in the world for them to bring out ASAP :-)

but I want to see how it compares to the GH5s at ISO 400, 800. 

Why do you want ISO 400,800? Isn't ISO 100,000 enough? ;-) hehe

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.

@IronFilm According to extrashot, when using TC, every time the camera goes to sleep, you lose 9 frames. Which kind of makes this camera worthless for synching up a mulit-cam shoot. Unless Panasonic issues a firmware update. Or do you think it's still worthwhile?

Frame drops was an issue that Dave Dugdale said was happening with the GH5 too (or was it the GH4?). I clearly remember him saying that there was an issue with syncing due to this. The solution was pretty simple, which was a re-sync it, to check where the video started from.

I saw this too yestersay. Their video was quite good. 9 frames exactly may be easy to handle, I am guessing. With a firmware.

@IronFilm I would be seriously be shocked if there were even more than one serious response to my question. 

I have my fingers crossed we'll get an answer eventually on TC!

The second my local store has a demo GH5S I am going over and asking if I may do a video for my vlog in their store of the TC feature! Then we will know.

Could you link to it. As the GH4/GH5 isn't dropping frames for TC... as well it doesn't support a TC input! Ha

Might have been video frames it was dropping, but that is very odd, we'd have heard about that! (just remember all the cries of anguish when people experienced it with the BMPCC etc...)

Of course all of the excitement over the camera is contingent on it performing well photographically.  I'm encouraged by the skintones we've seen in the few clips so far.  Panasonic have always gotten that right so far on the GH series (albeit using more conventional sensor technology), so I think that's the reason you're seeing it taken for granted a little for now.

I'll be informing the authorities about this! :grimace:

So far, I am not convinced there is any DR improvement with the GH5s compared to the GH5. Yes, there are some very talented filmmakers that know how to use these cameras to their fullest potential, but I'm just not seeing any differences when the two cameras are filmed side-by-side:
