Panasonic GH5 Review

 

The Panasonic GH5 is a wonderful successor to an already great hybrid still & video camera. Sporting a new 20MP sensor, faster processor, a very deep buffer, dual UHS-II SD slots, 4K video up to 60p, 10-bit internal video recording, 6K Photo mode and...

20MP sensor; Better per-pixel sharpness; Very good, slightly improved dynamic range and high ISOs; Stellar 4K video up to 60p with no crop; 6K Photo; Dual UHS-II SD slots; Good battery life for its class

Buffer is deep, but slow to clear; Expensive; Menus still confusing; No optical low-pass filter means greater risk of moire; No built-in flash

Panasonic GH5 review: The ultimate hybrid video and stills camera

 

Packed with professional features, the Panasonic GH5 is the new standard bearer for indie filmmakers.

Outstanding video quality ; Pro-level video features ; Superb ergonomics for photos and video

New features will be beyond some users’ needs ; Photo noise levels slightly higher than from direct competitors ; More expensive than the GH4

The GH5 raises the bar for photography, too, with its higher-resolution sensor, superb viewfinder and in-body stabilisation. The slightly higher noise levels compared with APS-C cameras is its one notable drawback but it doesn’t register as a...
