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,...

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...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH5 review

  (Rating Hidden)

An update to the superb GH4, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH5 is the latest release from the GH range of compact system cameras (CSC). The previous model carved out a niche as a high-end videographer's tool, and we're anticipating the GH5 to follow suit. We...

Panasonic Lumix GH5 Expert Review

 

Read our full review of the Panasonic Lumix GH5 - the ultimate video and stills camera - with FullHD video at 180fps, 4K video at 60fps, 6K photo at 30fps, and 20mp stills at 12fps - the camera offers everything you could possibly want.

The Panasonic Lumix GH5 features a 20 megapixel Micro Four Thirds sensor, with sensor based 5-axis image stabilisation, combined with the lens' optical image stabilisation, which gives benefits for both stills photography and video recording.

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...
