Panasonic GH5S brings massive low light improvement – exclusive interview and hands-on

Comment on the forum

Just last month I went to visit Panasonic UK for a hands-on with the new Panasonic GH5S. My full review is in the pipeline but first an introduction to the new camera on the block…

The GH5S has a newly developed 10.2MP sensor for enhanced low light performance with Dual Native ISO technology, as well as 240fps 1080p S&Q.

For the first time since the GH2 this sensor is an over-sized 1.86x crop multi-aspect sensor. Possible for the first time is 60p at Cinema 4K resolution (4096 x 2160), whereas the GH5 is just Ultra HD 60p. The field-of-view will be slightly wider in Cinema 4K on the GH5S compared to the GH5 due to the larger sensor. The new CMOS also brings colour improvements with a new 14bit readout and less noise.

Odyssey7Q turns wimpy Sony FS700 into monstrous 4K raw crunching beast with 15 stops DR!!

Sony FS700

Super charged specs!

  • 1-60fps 4K raw to DPX format
  • 120fps 4K raw burst mode
  • 240fps 2K raw continuous to Cinema DNG (would love to see the file sizes on that!!)
  • Single 3G HD-SDI link

You won’t need Sony’s own expensive raw recorder for the F5 to get 4K raw on the FS700. The camera firmware will step it up to being able to deliver 4k over a single 3G HD-SDI connection to the affordable Odyssey7Q monitor / recorder.
