  • It would be good habit to mention source with link in the starting post.

  • If this GH5 VE has about 1:1 4k pixels it wont has as detailed video in good light than GH5 which down samples the sensor from 20Mpixel.

  • @Vitaliy_Kiselev

    One fun thing you can do when the GH5s is released: compare the features of new GH5s to PV community requests to work out how much "influence" PV has had on Panasonic!

    If the rumours are real- then I think this percentage could be very high.

  • This hdr function ,how useful will it be if final output is not hdr source ,will we still gain DR by filming with it

  • That sensor can do HDR in 4k. Each pixel can be divided into four subpixels, so there will be two different 4k exposures that can be merged into a more dynamic range image.

  • A game of specs: Assuming that they use the same sensor as the rumor site tells, Sony imx294cjk. Chances are that 10bit flavor is all over.

  • It was mentioned several times on this site since gh2 hack that an alternate version of gh line was a good move.

    If gh5 LSI is paired with a lower resolution sensor, high frame rate, and while others will struggle on possesing power, gh series will shine with noise reduction, and other aliasing problems that come with resolution and speed.

    I expected good delivery of products before, but if this Gh5s is true, it will be like another dslr '' revolution'', since the format never leave the media, just adopted new formd like C300 line of cameras. So this gh5s version will be perfect too pick up, and strengthen the series.

    As a long time member of this community PV site and earlier on DVX user, gh series has long time fan base, hardcore fanbase. M4/3 its a really good format, very multi purpose cameras. on times where fullframe is the show, having this format with optimised features, will blow competition away if a good low light is achieved, since very much is done on apsc and full frame only for low noise and better iso. Put a speed booster, DOF done, equalised t's no problem anymore. Youl have same look.

    I am exited to see this camera make a move. As a DP I'm wishing this little beast to make grate image if v-log and VaricamLt settings are added, doesn't matter if 10bit, it will pull grate image. It's funny how on the beginning gh series Was managed from photo only Panasonic group, those engeniers where so well thought, now look, Varicam team is maybe now working hand to hand and maybe asking for some advices from that small photo team in Panasonic.

  • This is just too good to be true...

    4k Multiaspect, HDR with time sync, low light monster, the sensor is real, it exists, but to put it in a GH camera is against capitalist marketing behavior...

    This is what I was thinking about the GH6 in the "Wishes for GH6 topic". Will they do it now??? If yes, the GH6 will need to be 8k to make sense. Maybe they will castrate the HDR function? Or castrate something?

    Let's wait and see... and sing...

    You're just too good to be true
    I can't take my eyes off you
    You'd be like heaven to touch
    I wanna hold you so much

  • When Sony launched that 4/3 Starvis sensor some time ago (for "industrial purposes"), I thought that it would be perfect for a low light GH... http://www.sony-semicon.co.jp/products_en/IS/sensor0/img/product/cmos/IMX294CJK_Flyer.pdf

    4k 120fps, really? And anybody knows what means that Quad-Bayer thing?

  • VK what are chances of this GH5s having better DR and codec options internally (than the GH5) ?

  • @eyeBOX

    It is 43rumors source.

    Rumors of such camera surfaced for months now.

  • Anonymity for source protected?
