I've been begging Panasonic to add a firmware addition to turn off internal sharpening. Seems like it would be so easy.

It would be so nice... But, from my experience with usage of BM cameras, I always at the end had to add at least little bit of sharpness in software... So, for me it seems also logical question - weather is possible to make even better sharpening algorithm in cameras that use them (obviously because of consumer part of aimed market)?

My dear erstwhile member can you please stop attacking John Brawley now. I have long since given up on camera forum arguments so might not be completely up on who is right and who is wrong-evil /

I like the pictures. A lot.  This camera will probably replace the micro cinema camera for me as it’s not much bigger and is much easier to work with.  I didn’t feel as strongly about the 4K

What a shame. Who are these "deep state" BMD insiders that are here pushing an agenda ? Myself and Hook.  Who else ?  What do you guys think, there's a plot and conspiracy ?  You guys don't wat t

I'd much prefer to add sharpening as needed in Resolve. I always keep Sharpening OFF on the Ursa to keep odd noise patterns from creeping up.

So do I... and I think that's the reason why I'm so fond to this thread... (BM is only company about which I recognized in myself an stupid sentiment - that I owe something to it :)

From LM Mullen in GH5/s Facebook group. I spy a little shutter release button for stills and two record buttons. What is that flash-looking thing on the right??

I was only mildly curious at first but that rec button placement seals the deal. I love it. Looks like they might finally truly nail the ergonomics.

I guess we'v been spoilt by all the Flagship Smartphone launches. Especially those by Samsung. This one has tiny TVs (like 32 inches or something). I wish they had rented a 200inch 4k projector or something for the launch. With some very Filmic Lighting. I am sure that would have added to the sex appeal of the Pocket 4k. Probably added atleast a 1000 more buyers, who were besotted by the show (football recording housewives who suddenly felt that this may be the camera for them).

Me three! Obviously. Once you see the plastic gauss of the GH5 series (and others) you cant unsee it. Sharpening is meant for post... after color and contrast adjustments if possible... and DEFINITLEY after VFX. The halo-ing and "crunch" you get with the GH5/GH5s around detail (like hair) makes a decent green-screen key nearly impossible... even with it's great internal codec.
