Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5

 

The Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 is the mirrorless camera to get for 4K video, but if you're more concerned about stills, it's not a clear-cut winner.

Superlative video. Strong image quality. In-body stabilization. 10.3fps Raw capture. 4K and 6K photo modes. Sturdy all-weather build. Dual UHS-II card slots. Vari-angle touch LCD. EVF. Wi-Fi.

Focus tracking slows shooting rate. Pricey for stills-first shooters. Omits built-in flash.

If video is your primary focus, the Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 delivers the highest quality and feature set you can find in a camera in this price range. Still shooters invested in the Micro Four Thirds system shouldn't discount it either. It delivers...

Panasonic Lumix GH5 review: Hail the 4K king

 

Sure, it might be pipped in stills quality by the Fujifilm X-T2, but for video features and quality the Lumix GH5 is untouchable at this price 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 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.

Panasonic Lumix GH5 review

 

Blurring the lines between stills and video

Brilliant video specification ; Large and bright EVF ; Touchscreen interface ; Durable build ; Snappy performance

Image quality not class-leading ; ISO range could be broader

While the last couple of GH-series cameras have felt a little like video cameras masquerading as stills camera, the Panasonic Lumix GH5 is a much more rounded piece of kit. It's certainly one of the best 4K camera solutions out there, if not the best,...

The Lumix G9 seeks the same cachet for stills as the GH5 boasts for video

 

Panasonic hopes a combination of speed, tonal tuning and body design will tempt serious photographers.

Panasonic Lumix GH5 review with firmware v2.0

 

Panasonic Lumix GH5 review : At the beginning of this year, Panasonic announced its new flagship DSLM camera. The Panasonic Lumix GH5 is an interchangeable lens camera based on the Micro Four Thirds system. The Panasonic GH5 is not only a great camera...

For sure you can find better photo cameras with a large full-frame sensor and of course there are certainly professional video cameras with even more features. But WOW, the Lumix GH5 is such a versatile camera and delivers an amazing image quality!

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...
