"So be warned."

Sony Final Thoughts

"Try that with DSLR."

I chose to shoot most outdoor shots with an aperture of + or - f/5. So far performance is fabulous. In practice, the Sony produces superlative images. The Sony phase and contrast system has it beat. The second problem is the focusing controls.

"Love this Streaming Mirrorless Camera!"

Prompt delivery and everything in good shape. Needed to get it in time to experiment & get used to it. I've added some sample photos taken with this camera and a 50mm f1. The second problem is the focusing controls. They're a good choice for all around work.

Panasonic DC-GH5S First Impressions

"It's the lenses."

I love this combo and I must say I am thrilled with the Panasonic DC-GH5S. Users need to be open-minded and find new ways to use the Panasonic DC-GH5S. I expect features to improve and prices to fall. Overall, its a great deal, with the body and lenses alone. That's why I replaced the stock lens caps with Panasonic equivalents.

  • Panasonic GH5 Lumix C4K Mirrorless Camera with Rode VidMic GO Bundle
  • BUNDLE INCLUDES: Panasonic LUMIX GH5s C4K Mirrorless Camera Body, Battery (2-Pack) and Dual USB Charger for Panasonic DMW-BLF19, Sony 64GB SD Card, Rode Microphones VideoMic GO Microphone, and a Weatherproof Hard Case
  • DIGITAL LIVE MOS SENSOR: The LUMIX GH5s features Digital Live MOS sensor which offers 10.28MP and a significantly higher photoreceptive surface per pixel, delivering an ultra-wide dynamic range. Dual Native ISO, a technology found in broadcast video cameras, enables the use of 400 and 2,500 ISO as base points to raise the highest normal ISO setting of 51,200, and an extension to 204,800 ISO
  • VENUS ENGINE BEAUTY: The marriage of a new Digital Live MOS sensor with the beautiful Venus Engine reproduces extraordinary color detail and natural texture expression. Multipixel Luminance Generation and Intelligent Detail Processing render intense brightness and contrast. The Three-Dimensional Color Control zings with rich colors from dark to bright shades and high-precision Multi-Process NR makes your images pop even at high ISO sensitivity settings
  • 4K 60 FPS BURST: Shoot with extended burst, then choose and extract the exact frames you want to keep. The ultrahigh-speed 4K PHOTO mode at 60 fps with approximately 8MP resolution freezes even faster motion which is simply not possible in conventional cameras

Panasonic DC-GH5S Final Thoughts

"Overall pretty good."

The flash can be overpowered rather than the subtle fill. That being said I just love to travel and taking pics as a hobby. Low Light video is very well done. The availability of the control dials makes a huge difference. Right now, this is the best of the breed.
