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 Final Thoughts

"Great deal."

The whole package is well thought out. The flash feels lighter than my Andoer flash for my other camera. I have used the camera for some time now. Users need to be open-minded and find new ways to use the Panasonic DC-GH5S. Dynamic range on this camera is also very impressive.
