And when we say "much better" low-light capture, in particular, we mean it. Bulky, expensive, complicated and cumbersome (did I mention expensive), they are designed for the highest end level of filmmaking. The result: A claimed time to AF lock of as little as 0.07 seconds, compared to 0.05 seconds for the GH5. Being able to feel comfortable up to ISO 25,600 in some cases basically makes it so I can shoot in any situation I have ever found myself. Not only is it the cheapest, but you also get the full version of DaVinci Resolve. It's simply actively trying to hold the sensor still, rather than actively moving it to cancel out camera motion.). Nonetheless, the GH5S should still be praised for its improved low light performance, despite the limitations of the Micro 4/3 sensor size on board. Reviewing the footage revealed that its improvements to low-light performance are not understated. In this extremely dark environment, the shadows look especially noisy. Additionally, V-Log, which is normally an additional fee, has been included in the GH5S as part of the package. I wouldn't consider this "good" footage. It's not that it's rare to find us talking about a camera. The GH5 is doing its best to widen its dynamic range with VLog, but the sensor is having a hard time doing so without some serious noise. The two "High" ISO settings of 102,400 and 204,800 are pretty noisy, muddy and overall not great. Also supported is Hybrid Log Gamma capture, and the GH5S allows you to record high dynamic range content with a low-bitrate 4K HEVC codec. So if you want the best-stabilized images and the least possible fuss, you'll want to stick with the GH5. The camera can record at an internal 400 MBPS All-Intra format out of the box, which the GH5 was able to do only after a firmware update last fall. Last updated: 06/21/2019, Table of Contents: And not just a little, but a lot? Joe, a couple of interesting things in that video. Buffer clearing, however, is surprisingly sluggish, particularly with RAW files, despite the small, lower-res 10MP size and UHS-II card support. Certainly ISO 3200 on my Panasonic S5 looks very similarly clean to ISO 3200 on the new Sony A7S III. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the technology that Panasonic packed into the GH5S, especially with its incredible low light, high ISO performance. 2. (The latter approach will allow for more than two cameras to be kept in sync, too.). In my experience, I’m not sure I would rely on it 100% for tracking myself during a vlog, for instance. It's not a replacement for the GH5, but an enhancement. On the new GH5S, Panasonic added some red embellishments to the camera that 1) look awesome (red is my favorite color, so I may be biased) and 2) quickly and effectively differentiate it from the GH5. And for the earlier camera, that was it, but the GH5S will now continue on up to ISO 204,800 if you enable its extended sensitivity range. Throughout the history of Panasonic's Micro Four Thirds Lumix cameras, they all have, by and large, been photography-centric cameras. It's one thing to improve on an under-realized feature (like the ISO performance on the GH4 compared to the GH5). I think that if you are looking to buy a mirrorless solely for its video prowess, it’ll be hard to not include the GH5S on your list. Rated at ISO 400 and 2500 (or ISO 800 and 5000 in V-LogL), it works by using two different circuits to process the image data, each optimized for a different setting and providing clean footage instead of simply applying gain as non-dual-ISO sensors do. The YAGH is gone and, for better or worse, it has been replaced with the DMW-XLR1 XLR Microphone Adapter. Sensitivity tops out by default at ISO 51,200, where the GH5 had an upper limit of ISO 25,600. I’m sure some of you are accustomed to it by now, but I felt that it was a bit complicated to figure out how to get certain settings properly engaged. Not everything is for the Alexa, and if a Canon 5D can be used on a set then the GH5S sure as hell can. The GH5 has a single native ISO of 400. Helpfully, you can also frame in near-total darkness with the live boost function, which reduces live view frame rate and boosts sensitivity levels for a better view of dimly-lit scenes. I’d even argue that it could be better than many lower-end cinema cameras. The overall body shape, grip design, handling characteristics and external features are the same between these two cameras. Sure, RED and ARRI have been making this kind of quality for some time, but those are not what I call "approachable" cameras. 03/20/2018: Field Test Part II posted Panasonic GH5s Announced - No IBIS, Better low light, 10MP fewer pixels. Startup time was a little faster-than-average for a mirrorless camera, and switching from Play to Record and taking a shot was fairly quick. The main thing that strikes me about the current 24 megapixel full frame sensors is they are CLEAN. Not only is the subject well captured, but the shadows are also extremely usable. When shooting 12-bit RAW or 12-bit RAW + Large/Fine JPEG files, the average frame rate actually exceeded Panasonic's spec, at 12.5 and 13.1 frames per second respectively. The more video-centric (but still very stills-capable) Lumix GH5S shares almost exactly the same body with its earlier sibling, differing only in the addition of a red 'S' beneath the GH5 logo, a small red trim ring in place of the bottom row of knurling on the drive mode dial, and a bold red color for the video record button. Startup time and general responsiveness tested about the same as the GH5, and the camera's high-speed continuous burst rate of up to 12fps is the same, too. Unlike most cameras, there are actually two native sensitivity ratings in the GH5S, a feature the company refers to as Dual Native ISO. Feb 12, 2018 permalink. Typically as you need to brighten the image by increasing the ISO, the image quality degrades. The GH5s is a bit different; it has a dual native ISO. The entire range, including the extended settings, is available for stills and video. This makes it unlike most cameras, where one specific sensitivity offers the best signal to noise ratio since the signal needn't be amplified before A/D conversion, and noise levels climb or dynamic range is curtailed as you raise or lower the sensitivity from its native point. Hd. Imagine the audio equipment I could get for that. But what if I told you it could be improved. The GH5S isn't perfect, though, and perhaps its most glaring omission is the lack of in-body image stabilization (IBIS). Buffer depths when shooting RAW files were quite generous, at 120 or 138 frames depending on bit-depth, and RAW+JPEG buffer depths were also very good, ranging between 99 and 101 frames. The arrival of the GH5 really pushed the envelope for video on Micro Four Thirds, as it packed in a boatload of excellent video features, such as 4K 60p, 10-bit internal recording, high bitrates, as well as many video settings and options typically found in full-on video cameras. If you're wondering why Panasonic would remove the in-body stabilization, so were we. The big story surrounding the GH5S is going to be the ISO performance, but there have been other changes to the camera as well. You easily get two more stops over the standard GH5 and, I would say, it is usable up to ISO 12800, and potentially even ISO 25600 if you need it. Fortunately, all the statements I made about the stills quality transfers over to its 4K specs. That difference in pixel counts has a very big effect on the size of the photodiodes on the sensor surface, which in turn translates into a huge impact on noise levels. Over the years, the high-end GH-series models then emerged as video-shooting powerhouses, with each successive model adding more and more advanced video recording formats, features, and shooting modes. All in all, the GH5S has pretty much every video feature and setting required for all but the most demanding or specialized video creator. The GH5, on the other hand, does have IBIS, which works really well, making handheld video shooting very easy. Time per shot, averaged over buffer length of 99 frames, then slows to an average of about 0.25s or 4.1 fps with a lot of variation. This is useful, considering the GH5S is one of few mirrorless cameras that does away with the 29 minutes 59 second recording limit. Have your own thoughts on this camera? In the lab, the GH5S produced a full-autofocus shutter lag (with the subject at a fixed distance) of 0.173 second using 1-area (center) AF-S mode in mechanical shutter mode with the Panasonic Leica DG 12-60mm f/2.8-4 lens at about 25mm (50mm equivalent). But that's not to say that this is just a camera for the video crowd. In the lab, the GH5S tested just a hair slower than that 12fps spec (so did the GH5), but not by much, and only when shooting best quality JPEGs. The GH5S takes the low light performance to a new level for Micro Four Thirds. Looking at the GH5S, it's hard to say exactly who this camera is for. (Bear in mind that since it must keep the floating sensor centered and upright, an in-body IS system operates all of the time, even if to the end user stabilization appears to be "disabled". Good to excellent performance for a mirrorless ILC. First there's no question the GH5S is the low light champ relative to the GH5. Overall, between the Pocket 4K and the GH5 I prefer the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K (Amazon, B&H) for two important reasons: Better colors across ISOs; Cleaner image overall; However, dynamic range is similar. Comparing apples to apples with video grabs from both cameras, the GH5S still does surprisingly well up to about ISO 6400, but beyond that the Sony's larger sensor and dynamic noise reduction catapults their camera's capabilities far beyond what we expected, and changed our opinion in the comparison. The Panasonic GH5s is expected to start shipping next week, and you can currently put in a preorder for when it becomes available. It makes shooting hand held so much easier and the IBIS in the GH5 is excellent. Single-shot cycle times were quite fast at 0.39 second for best quality JPEGs and 0.45 second for RAW+JPEG. Should I buy a C300, or four GH5S's? The GH5S appears to want to be considered as such, so it is only fair to compare to the only camera that has been hailed as king of that segment since its inception: the Sony A7S II. The result is the GH5S is 2.38x (7.5db) more sensitive than its GH5 counterpart. The GH5 managed 0.129 second with the same lens. For one thing, the new image sensor has allowed a 25% reduction in rolling shutter since that used in the GH5, meaning that your videos will be much less prone to subjects that seem to lean to one side, and unsightly, jello-like wobbling in panning shots. The two slots can be written to sequentially, set to segregate by file type or to serve as a backup in the event of a card failure. The biggest advantage is that external recorders are now becoming less necessary than they used to be—though an Atomos Ninja V can’t hurt and will be wanted for 4K60 recording in 10-bit. Doing some static shots where you want to change focus positions using the touchscreen is quite smooth, though. Speed up future orders, see order history, create wish lists, and more. Available-light stills shooters, astrophotographers and the like will likely also be interested despite the lower resolution versus the GH5. (No built-in or bundled flash.). Please enable javascript for your best B&H experience. That's because in most cameras, video capture feels like something of an afterthought, even today. Apart from the "GH5S" branding and a few new styling tweaks, such as the bright red recording button, the GH5 and GH5S look exactly alike. It's a device willing to work with me the creator, and together we are making some truly breathtaking visuals. The GH5S shares many of the same Pros & Cons as the GH5 -- for the full list, see our GH5 Conclusion. Oh, and no time limit to continuous video recording, of course. In the modern era, you will find fewer filmmaking cameras that will impress you as much as the GH5S, and none that can even come close to its price point. 06/14/2018: Performance posted One thing I will ding the GH5S for is the menu system. The GH5S, though, is aimed at low-light specialists and videographers. Manufacturer rebates, terms, conditions, and expiration dates are subject to manufacturers printed forms NYC DCA Lic. All other standard return policy conditions apply. Not only is the ISO range extended from ISO 200 – 12,800 on the Panasonic GH5 to ISO 80 – 204,800, it’s able to do it with two different native ISOs, allowing for cleaner files.” However, the GH5S offers a wider ISO range and a lighter body weight. 12,800 is the max video ISO for the 1DX II, and same for the GH5. It's actually outstanding, and looks much better than just about any other video camera it could be compared to in its class other than the A7S II. The Sony A7S series has always been considered the leader in low light at very high ISOs. But where its predecessor tipped the scales at 25.6 ounces (725g) loaded and ready to shoot (but without a lens), the GH5S weighs in at just 23.3 ounces (660g). But at just 12 megapixels, it’s a big sacrifice in resolution to get there especially in the 8K age. Besides sensor tech improving low-light performance—the Achilles’ heel of Micro Four Thirds, if you ask me—the GH5S gains Dual Native ISO, a function that had previously been reserved for high-end cinema cameras. Plus, Full HD (1920x1080) can be captured at up to 240p. Sensitivity tops out by default at ISO 51,200, where the GH5 had an upper limit of ISO 25,600. Surprisingly clean high ISOs in the GH5S. The earlier GH5 includes an in-body, sensor-shift type image stabilization system, and then extends its utility still further by allowing it to function in concert with lens-based stabilization, a technique Panasonic refers to as Dual I.S. A bonus for stills and time-lapse shooters is the addition of 14-bit raw, a first for Panasonic. A sensor significantly smaller than the full-frame A7S II is beating that camera in low-light performance. You won't find many GH5 owners who will be upset to find that the camera only takes 10-megapixel images, since those who love the GH5 don't love it for its photos. It's really quite excellent. Working with V-LogL—which comes standard—the GH5S boasts an incredible dynamic range for a mirrorless system. “At both 12,800 and 25,600, the GH5S looks slightly better than the A7S II at the same ISOs, which is both unexpected and subjectively highly impressive for a camera featuring a sensor that is a fraction the size of the other. Whether everyone will see it that way is still a good question, considering the noticeable pushback on a camera without in-body stabilization. Because this goes out to the edges of the image circle, having stabilization could lead to vignetting issues. You have until Feb 01, 2021 to return or exchange items bought after Oct 19, 2020. By way of comparison, the Panasonic GH5 has a resolution of 20.3 megapixels in its native 4:3-aspect ratio, or almost double that of the GH5S. But at the same time, it'll perform much better than its higher-res twin when shooting video or in low ambient light levels. With respect. Each photodiode has grown in size by around 1.96 times, and according to Panasonic that change translates to a 1.5-stop (9.7dB) improvement in the signal-to-noise ratio. The result is a digital imager that can "faithfully reproduce even the dark parts of the image," with a new ISO range of 80 through 204,800. Note, though, that 60 fps footage comes with a requirement that you record 8-bit, 4:2:0-subsampled content. Startup and mode switching are reasonably fast, while autofocus speeds and shutter lag are pretty quick. The Panasonic GH5 is already one of the best video cameras you can purchase, especially once you consider its size and low cost. (And nor could it, as the very corners of the sensor likely extend beyond the image circle.). In contrast, the GH5S in the exact same situation at the exact same settings does considerably better. The GH5S is the first camera in its class capable of recording Cinema 4K (4096x2160) in 60p. Still, the GH5 was designed as a hybrid camera, one that's made for photographers and videographers alike. The GH5 was, and is, already a fantastic camera for video shooters, but the Panasonic GH5S simply goes above and beyond. I'm very impressed with the performance at 25,600 considering it's two stops more than I can achieve with either the 1DX II or the GH5. Wired connectivity includes a USB-C port compatible with SuperSpeed USB 3.1 Gen1, a Type-A HDMI port, 3.5mm microphone / line level input and headphone jacks, and a 2.5mm remote jack. The Panasonic GH5S impresses with its ability to shoot consumer 4K and Cinema 4K content entirely in-camera at a rate of 60 frames per second, both of which the company says are world's firsts for a mirrorless camera. Panasonic has turned much of the logic of opting for a full-frame video camera like a Sony A7S II or a Canon 1DX Mark II on its head, and created a product that can give both a serious run for their money. I've shot with it professionally twice now and used it in testing environments more than a dozen times, and the soul of this camera has gripped me since the first time I looked at the footage it produced. Firstly and more obviously, the IS system itself can make noise that could potentially be picked up on your mics, disrupting your audio track. Reminiscent of Sony’s solution, this shoe-mounted device adds two XLR inputs and a few physical controls for handling audio, and it has a hot shoe on top for mounting something; pro audio without needing to sync later—which makes sense to me. Like its sibling, the GH5S allow you to extract high-res 8.3-megapixel stills from 4K videos in what it terms "4K Photo" mode, and you can expect far less rolling shutter in these, too. Unlike the GH5, the GH5s has a low … And there are certainly some noteworthy features targeted specifically at still capture, such as a 14-bit raw file format, and an all-red, night vision-friendly user interface mode. If you already know the GH5, you might as well skip past this section, as the GH5S looks and feels more or less identical to the GH5. The Panasonic Lumix GH5S is a new flagship compact system camera aimed at professional videographers. And while the AF speed is slightly slower than the GH5, and the lack of in-body image stabilization removes some of what made the GH5 so versatile, the GH5S offers such a wealth of features and high-quality video, that it's easy to overlook these minor points. Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Camera, Panasonic DMW-XLR1 XLR Microphone Adapter, Atomos Ninja V 5" 4K HDMI Recorder/Monitor. Time to talk about that big red button. Before we get into the major things that make the GH5S different from the GH5, I wanted to first mention a few small things. The idea of improving on excellent is the angle that Panasonic took when they showed us the newly announced GH5S. There are fewer pixels for the GH5S' DFD AF system to pull data from, so the AF speed is rated slightly slower, and our lab tests concur. With a resolution of just over 10 megapixels, the GH5S will definitely lag someway behind the GH5 when it comes to fine detail capture for still imaging under good light. Finally, Panasonic has developed plenty of accessories for the GH5S, so let’s talk about the video-specific ones. In terms of their basic hardware, both the 3.2-inch, 3:2-aspect, 1,620k-dot LCD monitor and 3,680k-dot, 100% coverage OLED viewfinder are essentially unchanged, although the latter can now operate with a 120 fps refresh rate as in the G9, rather than being limited to 60 fps refresh as in the GH5. & Home App. Taking a page from Sony’s playbook and the a7S series, the GH5S features a conservative 10.28MP Multi-Aspect MOS sensor. The GH5S is a surprisingly capable stills shooter. As we said earlier, there's certainly a lot to talk about on the video front. While the GH5 can already do so in UHD, the GH5S adds the additional pixels in Cinema 4K. Editor's note: This section has been updated to reflect new footage captured with the A7S II. As you can see in the tests, the results at high ISOs are close. (Capture frame rates vary from two to 60 or 240 fps for 4K and Full HD respectively, and output rates from 24 to 60 fps.). Though an ARRI Alexa and a RED Epic are both among the best choices for high-end filmmaking, they aren't the best choice for anything other than that. Deal. The table above shows the number of shots the camera is capable of (on a fully-charged rechargeable battery), based on CIPA battery-life and/or manufacturer standard test conditions. Oh, and if you like to keep close tabs on your autofocus or even fine-tune focus manually, you'll also be happy to see both a 20x manual focus assist mode and an AF point-scope function present and accounted for. Many have considered the GH series to be relatively large, considering its sensor size and mirrorless design. To be fair, I don’t think anyone has figured out a great menu system for mirrorless since we started cramming video into these things. In all cases, raw buffer depth is 80 frames and JPEG buffer depths as deep as 600 frames when using a UHS-II U3 compliant flash card. Additionally, the GH5S offers so much to just about everyone looking to capture video that it outclasses anything priced under $10,000 in sheer imaging potential for a lowly $2500. Getting the main gripe out of the way, we should talk about the lack of in-body image stabilization. Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 at f/1.2; 1/100 second; ISO 4000. This reduction also means that the GH5S cannot perform Panasonic's normally highly-touted 6K Photo. “As a camera that excels in shooting in low light, the LUMIX GH5S boasts -5EV luminance detection performance with Low Light AF thanks to the higher sensitivity and optimized tuning of the sensor. Enter new zip code to refresh estimated delivery time. For instance, it bests the Canon 1DX Mark II at ISO 12,800 and competes nicely against the Sony A7S II, another low-light/video-centric camera, up until ISO 6400. Full-resolution buffer depth was essentially limited only by card capacity when shooting Large/Fine JPEGs (Panasonic claims 600 or more frames and we've confirmed 600). But neither the GH5 nor the 1DX II are considered "low light cameras." That's right. How does it stack up in that regard? It's entirely another thing, and one worthy of significant praise, to choose to improve on something already excellent. Whereas the EVA1 has Dual ISOs of 800/2500, a quick test of the GH5S shows it to use 400/2500 for its Dual ISOs. Both are about the same speed as the GH5. This is the feature that tells everyone exactly who this camera is targeting—filmmakers, if you still didn’t catch it. Time to capture, after half-pressing and holding shutter button. Flash enabled, Time from fully pressing shutter button to image capture. Much like the GH5 before it, the Lumix GH5S sports twin SD card slots, compatible with higher-capacity SDHC and SDXC types, as well as higher-speed UHS-I, UHS-II and Video Speed Class 90 cards. With a 12MP Four Thirds sensor, the GH5S is, yes, a camera that can take still photos, but it is designed for video. Panasonic also slightly modified a couple of the quick menus to show the vast number of recording modes a bit more effectively. But there are cameras that feel as though they were created with purpose, care and as though the developers not only understood what we as artists wanted, but also saw beyond our desires to craft a finished product that exceeds even the loftiest of expectations.
