A group of filmmakers and photographers tested out the GH5. Here’s what they found.
For a camera that still is not available to the public, the Panasonic GH5 has engendered both high expectations and a fair amount of criticism online. The message coming from a live panel at B&H (watch it here) is that the GH5 is a massive upgrade from the GH4. It is a flexible camera that is ready to work as a stable, reliable platform—and not just for filmmakers.
To emphasize that point, the panel consisted of a diverse group of image-makers and storytellers: David Flores (still photographer), Griffin Hammond (documentary filmmaker), Lok Cheung (Vlogger), Jacki Huntington (producer and director), and Sean Robinson (Panasonic).
If the GH4‘s touchstone was that it brought 4K to the masses, then the GH5 continues expanding on the 4K culture.
