Panasonic's Lumix GH5 is a worthy flagship body, greatly extending the quality and capabilities of the earlier GH4. A more detailed viewfinder, twin SD slots which both support the full speed of UHS-II, effective continuous AF at 9fps, and built-in stabilisation all make it a powerful stills shooter...

It's worth noting that Panasonic already has two firmware updates planned for the camera, one expected around April, which will bring 10-bit 4:2:2 1080p capture, and a second at some point during the summer.

The camera world has been moving at a slow pace over the last couple of years, with only small gains to be made. If you were to compare the GH5's image quality to the earlier GH4, for example, then the gains aren't that significant. But that's besides the point.

    When it comes to pro 4K video capture there’s little else to compare, great stills camera too, abundant autofocus options and capability (including 6K Photo), great EVF and LCD

    Sony A99 II gives high-end users a lot to consider, some autofocus slip-ups (bright lighting, in particular, causes issues), chunky for a mirrorless camera

The Panasonic Lumix GH4 proved to be a runaway success when it was released back in 2014, so Panasonic certainly had a tough act to follow with the new GH5. They've evidently spent the three intervening years hard at work, as the GH5 represents a big step forward for both photographers and...

The Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 succeeds the GH4 , which upon its release in 2014 held the distinction of being the first interchangeable-lens mirrorless camera to offer 4K video capture.

When Panasonic unveiled its new Lumix DC-GH5 camera in a 'development announcement' at Photokina last September it was hailed as a ground-breaker. A successor to the equally revolutionary GH4 , it provides further evolution of both the movie recording capabilities and the proprietary 4K Photo modes.

LVF was defective right out of the box. When flipped out and rotated forward the image would appear upside down. The sensor that determines screen orientation was faulty. If you shook the camera a little in this position the screen would flip upside down and right side up.

We all know by know the video capabilities of this camera, what is a pleasant surprise is the pics. I have a Canon 6D and you couldn't tell which camera I used. The one issue I have so far is the 10 bit recording.

This camera when paired with the Leica 12-60mm f2.8-f4 lens is an amazing combination! The five axis stabilization in the camera works amazingly well with the stabilization with this lens allowing for smooth walking without the need of any other stabilization!

I have both the GH4 and now the GH5. Some thoughts: The feel in my hand feels better with the video record button moved to an easier position on the top. The low light capability is improved and the system handles manual cine lenses better when you attach it asks you for the focal length.

I was super excited, camera arrived, started shooting and then...A Vertical line of pixels died after the first day of use and i had to send it out to Panasonic for repair. The battery doesn't last as long as the GH4 and gets kind of hot really fast.
