gh5s low light isos
The GH5S is also compatible with the same DMW-BGGH5 battery grip as that camera, which doubles battery life courtesy of an extra battery, and also adds portrait-orientation shooting controls. You bought the GH5S because of its video prowess. 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. The entire range, including the extended settings, is available for stills and video. Bulky, expensive, complicated and cumbersome (did I mention expensive), they are designed for the highest end level of filmmaking. Overall, despite looking like a tried-and-true Lumix Micro Four Thirds camera, the GH5S is a unique, specialized camera; Panasonic's most specialized Micro Four Thirds camera yet. But neither the GH5 nor the 1DX II are considered "low light cameras." Panasonic has unveiled the LUMIX GH5S, a new addition to the G Series lineup with exceptional low-light performance for the professional videographer.The GH5S will be available in Australia in February 2018. Beyond just the ISO sensitivity performance, the GH5S offers a number of options for upping the image quality of your video footage. With 14-bit raws, both figures drop by one frame per second. What's even more impressive is how the GH5S compares to a full-frame camera like the 1DX Mark II. Serv. 10-bit recording is a revolutionary feature for video in mirrorless cameras. The Continuous High Speed "H" mode burst rate was excellent at 11.7 frames per second for best quality JPEGs, just shy of Panasonic's 12 fps spec. Feb 12, 2018 permalink. It can absolutely compete with other video cameras and is usable at a much higher ISO than many shooters are going to be used to, provided they don't already own the A7S II. I took a moment to do a "darkness reveal" using only ISO to see how well the GH5S can see in pretty much near-darkness. I was surprised by how clear the low-light capabilities between the two cameras really are. In this, the second field test of this camera, I want to show you what can be done in near darkness as well as how beautiful footage looks in ideal lighting. The GH5 was already great in that regard, but the GH5S goes above and beyond with its larger pixels and dual gain ("Dual Native ISO") design. The image sensors used differ radically, with each camera focused on very different needs. Additionally, Panasonic also added C4Kp30 in both 8 and 10 bit, which are new when compared to the GH5. Based on pro videographer feedback, Panasonic opted to leave IBIS out on this higher-end model, as the IBIS system can potentially produce noise and it can also interfere with lots of stabilizer rigs, such as gimbals, cranes and other camera-mounting gear often used in professional video productions. 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. Joe, a couple of interesting things in that video. Gen. #0907906. It looks really good, but you'll notice that there are some very deep shadows around the edges that, though for this scene look excellent, offer no real recovery options in post should we want to change that look during editing. This is one of the best video cameras you can buy today, and basically the best video camera at or under $2,500 (the closest competitor camera is the original GH5, and again it depends on what you value more: ISO or IBIS). Another very important video feature which the GH5 lacks is the Panasonic GH5S' ability to produce timecode with which to sync another camera on a multi-camera shoot, or to input timecode from another device instead. I'm not sure what the actual crop factor is at this time, but just know that it is indeed wider. 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. The 4K video on the GH5S looks so good that stills captured from the 4K footage can pass off as stills. To minimize the effect of different lens' focusing speed, we test AF-active shutter lag with the lens already set to the correct focal distance. Taking a page from Sony’s playbook and the a7S series, the GH5S features a conservative 10.28MP Multi-Aspect MOS sensor. And with the flip-out touchscreen in the back, it is so easy to get things done. Iâve never seen footage this clear, sharp and natural-looking from a camera as small and affordable as the Panasonic GH5S. Sensitivity tops out by default at ISO 51,200, where the GH5 had an upper limit of ISO 25,600. 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. The GH5S takes the low light performance to a new level for Micro Four Thirds. 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. First found in the GH5, the GH5S just makes it all better. The Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S is a Micro Four Thirds mirrorless interchangeable lens camera body announced and released by Panasonic in January 2018. Not everything is for the Alexa, and if a Canon 5D can be used on a set then the GH5S sure as hell can. There are, however, slight differences in autofocus performance compared to the GH5. 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. 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). The GH5S is the first camera in its class capable of recording Cinema 4K (4096x2160) in 60p. Finally, and this is actually more than a minor change, the GH5S actually has a different crop factor than the GH5. I would not recommend using the ISO that high unless all you care about is capturing a scene, not capturing a scene well. I can't think of any other video camera that can do as much as the GH5S that has that kind of value. Then there's Cinema 4K at up to 30p with internal 8-bit and 10-bit formats, as well as 4:2:2 10-bit HDMI output. Originally we claimed the GH5S performed better at high ISOs than did the A7S II, but that was based on incorrectly comparing resampled still images from the A7S II with 4K video frame grabs from the GH5S. 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. I'm willing to say that I'd use footage from this scene up to ISO 25,600, but after that it's just a bit too noisy for my taste. It allows us to put different LUTs and looks over the footage to do just about anything we want. Not only is the subject well captured, but the shadows are also extremely usable. Instead, the camera simply crops to your chosen aspect ratio within the image circle, and discards the rest of the sensor data. (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.). Plus, despite its smaller Four Thirds sensor, the GH5S competes quite impressively at high ISO video quality against high-end full-frame cameras. It's a wonderfully designed camera that may not get the widespread recognition it deserves because of its 10 megapixel label that some will refuse to see beyond and the fact that it isn't designed to be a photo camera as much as it truly excels as being a video camera. Burst performance is excellent, as are buffer depths, however buffer clearing can be sluggish when shooting RAWÂ files despite UHS-II card support and the smaller 10.2-megapixel files. The new sensor design has given the Panasonic GH5s exceptional low light performance that challenges even the Sony a7s II, in a smaller sensor size. 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. Its ability to produce extremely high quality video in multiple formats, the inclusion of ultra-high definition 4Kp60 capture, the improved ISO performance and the continued excellence of its battery life (which has been a hallmark of the GH series of late) made for a truly excellent video camera. However, as we noted near the outset, there's one fairly major feature subtraction compared to the GH5, which may persuade many photographers to opt for the higher-res body instead. By contrast, the GH5S never uses its entire sensor area, regardless of the aspect ratio you choose. Buffer clearing can be sluggish, though, even with a very fast 2000x UHS-II card, ranging from only 2.1 seconds after a long burst of JPEGs to over 21 seconds after a long burst of RAW+JPEG files. Another feature subtraction versus the original GH5 is that the Panasonic GH5S lacks a 6K Photo mode, for the simple reason that it doesn't have sufficient pixels on its sensor to yield a 6K feed. It's supposed to be a Panasonic GH camera, and as one, it is truly the best they've ever made. Combined with very fast lenses and a Metabones Speed Booster, and you could say it surpasses quite a few full frame cameras and all of Canonâs, even the 1D X Mark II and 1D C (which I will compare in a later post). The reason is that the Depth-from-Defocus based 225-point autofocus system's algorithms have less data to work with from the lower-resolution 10.2-megapixel sensor. 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. Doing some static shots where you want to change focus positions using the touchscreen is quite smooth, though. Video-specific tuning has resulted in some awesome improvements, and some weird changes. You can also record slow-motion and fast-motion footage entirely in-camera. The GH5S' prefocused shutter lag time was 0.045 second with the mechanical shutter, which is very fast and actually a bit faster than the GH5's 0.056s. But the GH5S lacks in-body stabilization of any kind, instead relying solely on your lenses to provide image stabilization. Looking at the GH5S, it's hard to say exactly who this camera is for. 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. Since the image sensor itself is being used to create the information on which the AF algorithms function, they too benefit from its larger photodiodes and improved sensitivity. The lower resolution does mean that you won’t get the potential benefits of down-sampling (namely sharper images); however, the images seemed quite sharp and lacked any issues, such as aliasing or moiré. And that, of course, also means there's no Dual I.S. The central promise of the GH5S is better performance in low light and at higher ISOs. It's really quite excellent. The Panasonic GH5s appears to be a pretty nice little upgrade for those who need the expanded ISO, and looking for something to compete with the Sony a7sII in low light conditions. I can recall just a few from my past that represent more than just a tool, but an extension of me as an artist. And part of me thinks that's a good thing, and the other part of me thinks that's a missed opportunity. The GH5S isn't going to win any awards for still image resolving power or print sizes. And for the audio component of your videos, there are both 3.5mm headphone and microphone jacks as well as an onboard stereo mic with a third, hidden noise cancellation mic. Working with the footage was quite easy. Before we get into the major things that make the GH5S different from the GH5, I wanted to first mention a few small things. 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. But the GH5S just looks...better. 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. It's the camera to get out when you really need to push the limits of current sensor tech. This means that after ISO 400, you see more and more noise as you increase the ISO. When manually focused, the GH5S' lag time dropped to 0.083 second with the mechanical shutter, which is very good, though not quite as fast as the GH5's 0.066 second. âAs 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. If you're wondering why Panasonic would remove the in-body stabilization, so were we. For documentary shooters or run-and-gun videographers, IBIS is a huge deal. 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). The GH5, on the other hand, does have IBIS, which works really well, making handheld video shooting very easy. This connection feels so much better than the micro and mini option of many competitors, making it one of the best options for use on a professional set. Panasonic also slightly modified a couple of the quick menus to show the vast number of recording modes a bit more effectively. Firstly and more obviously, the IS system itself can make noise that could potentially be picked up on your mics, disrupting your audio track. making "No" the preferred answer. by Mike Tomkins, Jaron Schneider, William Brawley and Zig Weidelich Many would argue that the Panasonic GH-series mirrorless cameras transformed the industry with their compact sizes and professional feature sets. The $500 price bump for the "S" is absolutely worth it, and the camera is a total steal at US$2,500. (And for video, ten megapixels is still plenty even to allow for capture of Cinema 4K footage, which has a resolution of just 8.3 megapixels.). This trend continues up until neither camera is useful. With respect. It's simply actively trying to hold the sensor still, rather than actively moving it to cancel out camera motion.). The GH5S does however have a Power Save LVF mode which can increase battery life to a whopping 1,300 shots when using the EVF. The GH5 managed 0.129 second with the same lens. Mirrorless for video came about because the cameras are small and affordable; packing-in these pro-level features make that true again. ISO 51,200 is starting to look like the noise level we saw from the Canon 1DX II at ISO 12,800, so it's acceptable but not "clean." So, to go one step further, Panasonic created the specialized Lumix GH5S, a video-centric GH5 that provides a number of internal components and capability changes that make it more suited to serious videographers. Feb 11, 2018 permalink. Read on to find out! This is also finally a Micro Four Thirds camera I’m not afraid to use at night. As high as ISO 25,600, there is very little noise and the end result is extremely clean. This has, so far, been a good decision. Ordinarily, at this point in one of our overviews, we'd give you a rundown of the camera's performance, autofocus and exposure capabilities, and maybe some special features, then circle back for video capture towards the end of the article. That is what Panasonic did here with the GH5S. In other words, DPR raves about low-light video with the GH5s, but I see the potential for stills too. Shooting DCI 4K video at both of the dual native ISOs (saved direct to card) produced very clean footage, delivering extremely impressive results even above ISO 2500. Note, though, that 60 fps footage comes with a requirement that you record 8-bit, 4:2:0-subsampled content. The two "High" ISO settings of 102,400 and 204,800 are pretty noisy, muddy and overall not great. 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. This scene was lit by three sources: a table light (which was the brightest), a small wall sconce just off camera left, and a very dim chandelier in the rear of the scene. As is usually the case, switching to electronic shutter mode actually increased lag, but not by much. We close every Friday evening to Saturday evening for Shabbos. The CIPA-rated 440 shots per charge when using the LCD monitor and 410 shots with the EVF are above average for a mirrorless ILC (but keep in mind there no built-in flash with is normally fired for 50% of shots for CIPA testing), however battery life is much lower than a typical DSLR when using an optical viewfinder. In real-world shooting, however, the AF experience is not drastically different from the GH5. This makes use of the 10-bit recording for maximum flexibility when you bring it into Premiere or DaVinci Resolve. That said, that's incredibly impressive. Like. And the thing is, the GH5 wasn't even bad at 12,800. Buffer capacity is essentially unlimited when shooting JPEGs (600+ frames), while RAW buffer depth is very generous (though not unlimited). At least in those scenes it appears the overall video quality of the S is comparable to the GH5. However, when it comes to video, the GH5S produces fantastic video quality, especially as you climb into the higher ISOs. The GH5S is, however, slightly lighter than the GH5 due to internal component changes, but the camera still features a full magnesium alloy body with weather-sealing. Unique 12MP Four Thirds sensor improves video quality, especially at higher ISOs, 14-bit RAW support (12-bit still available), High-speed 4K Photo mode captures images at 60fps, Dual UHS-II card slots with hot-swap support, OLED EVF refresh rate bumped up to 120fps, Full sensor-width video capture even at 4K, Weather-sealed and freeze-proof to 14Â°F/-10Â°C, Optional hot-shoe-mounted XLR microphone adapter, Good battery life, with slightly increased battery life over GH5, Time code in/out via the PC sync terminal (BNC adapter included), 10MP resolution limiting by modern standards for still images; limits print size, Lower sensor res prevents support for 6K Photo features, Expensive, though a very good value compared to pro-level, dedicated video cameras, Can't record two different video formats simultaneously to each SD card. The GH5s is a bit different; it has a dual native ISO. : Elec. Available since February 2018, the Panasonic GH5S is priced at around US$2,500 body-only in the US market. Heck, even with love. Because it's one thing to upset the people who just bought the GH5 less than a year ago by introducing one that's better, but it's another to force those same people to buy two cameras instead of one. Leave a comment below! Sadly, you can't just charge the battery in-camera, though, so you do have to remember to bring the charger along. The noise has been dramatically reduced, and overall the footage is significantly more usable. I personally have been waiting for the day that this would start happening at a point where anyone who wanted to, could take advantage of it. You can record 4K and Full HD video without clip length limits, including true Cinema 4K or anamorphic content. 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. And this is clearly a feature Panasonic expects most owners to take advantage of, as well, since it's including the requisite flash sync terminal to BNC conversion cable in the box. It easily fits into both professional and amateur videographer productions and workflows. Have your own thoughts on this camera? That meaâ¦ I don't think anyone would have thought we would be comparing a Micro Four Thirds sensor to a full frame and really debating which did better, but here we are. We're told that there are two main concerns in a camera aimed at professional videographers. 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. A measure of Panasonic's confidence in the GH5S' low-light chops can be seen in its ISO range. For compositions that require shooting in low-light conditions, Panasonic has also added its Dual Native ISO Technology to the GH5S to reduce noise in the image. Everything is easy to find and easy to use. Side by side with the GH5, it's better in nearly every way. 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. The detail, the depth of field, the overall image quality is just superb. It also plays a part in heat dissipation, an issue we have seen on ultra-compact cameras. Unlike the GH5, the GH5s has a low â¦ While both cameras use contrast-detect AF systems, the GH5S is rated for better low-light AF, thanks to its lower-res sensor with larger pixels. Imaging Resource © 1998 - 2020. What I'm saying is, unless you're doing really high level color grading and post production, you probably won't notice a difference in most circumstances. Fortunately, all the statements I made about the stills quality transfers over to its 4K specs. Power comes from a 7.2-volt, 1,860mAh, 14Wh DMW-BLF19 lithium-ion rechargeable battery pack, just as in the GH5. 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. Though the GH5S performs extremely well and even hangs with the A7S II up until ISO 6400, the Sony begins to pull away after that. What the GH5S lacks in on-sensor stabilization (a move made by Panasonic at the request of high-end filmmakers who found it to work poorly with car, drone rigs and other mechanical stabilizers), it makes up for in pure image quality across a range of ISOs. It's wonderful to finally see a camera that can produce this kind of imagery at a price point that is actually affordable. Though from a pure image-making perspective it's superior to the GH5, losing IBIS removes part of what makes the GH5 such an excellent camera. There are also V-LogL and Rec.709 lookup tables in-camera without any payware software keys required to unlock their use, plus the ability to upload four more LUTs of your own in Panasonic's .VLT format. I'm not sure which is worse. It's straight up cheap. It's not supposed to be any of those cameras. In that same vein, losing 6K photos is also something many GH5 owners will be ok with if it means getting two more clean stops of ISO performance and greater flexibility with recording options. One thing I will ding the GH5S for is the menu system. Overall, the GH5S is a brilliant evolutionary step in the GH line. 0. Here, video capture is clearly of huge importance, and an area in which this camera offers some really significant improvements over the GH5. A test scene lit at 6500K shot with Panasonic Lumix GH5S (ISO 160, lowest ISO available) f/8 and automatic white balance:, focus point is the Siemens star in the center. I increased the ISO at each of its intervals, and I have to say, it's pretty impressive what this "little" sensor can see in the dark. The email address you entered was an invalid email. 06/21/2019: Review Conclusion posted. 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. In my experience, I’m not sure I would rely on it 100% for tracking myself during a vlog, for instance. Reviewing the footage revealed that its improvements to low-light performance are not understated. Time per shot, with no apparent buffer limit. At the other end of the scale, base sensitivity is ISO 160 and is expandable to ISO 80. 4K / 8K Arising: Panasonic today release their new GH5S mirrorless camera with amazing low light capabilities. But what if I told you it could be improved. Thus, videographers wanting stable handheld footage with their GH5S will need to invest in extra equipment or make sure to use Lumix lenses with optical image stabilization which can't correct for roll. The overall body shape, grip design, handling characteristics and external features are the same between these two cameras. Unleash its full capability by combining it with the Atomos Ninja Inferno 4K monitor / recorder - recording up to DCI 4Kp60 10-bit 4:2:2 over HDMI 2.0 directly into production-ready Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR on SSD drives. (And nor could it, as the very corners of the sensor likely extend beyond the image circle.). you release and press the shutter too quickly in Single Shot mode, I've never been more proud of the work I've created, and I've never been so giddy to push a camera beyond what I once thought as limits only to find that those limits were only barriers put up by what I thought were great cameras before it. See the table above. It offers better video quality, more shooting options, and more advanced video-specific features; it's a tailor-made camera for experienced and professional-level videographers. Many have considered the GH series to be relatively large, considering its sensor size and mirrorless design. When examining the two cameras, the A7S II appears to be a bit less saturated than the GH5S, and that is much more noticeable the higher the ISO we go. The GH5 is more of an all-around shooter for stills and video, and hence packs in plenty of resolution, the better to create great big, frameworthy prints. This is dramatically larger than the original GH5, which saw its ISO range stop at 12,800. Deal. Now seems as good a time as any! The footage produced at its max ISO was and continues to be completely acceptable and usable. 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. 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. The GH5S is also slightly slower to focus than the GH5, though not to a significant degree. The main thing that strikes me about the current 24 megapixel full frame sensors is they are CLEAN. There are so few cameras that I cling to as treasured objects these days. For the Lumix GH5S, there are actually two different sensitivity levels at which the camera is able to operate natively, and thus noise levels will be at their lowest around both of these points, with a rise in noise levels between.
