Panasonic GH5 review by Dan Watson on Huffingtonpost: “It really is a revolution for compact video cameras”

Dan Watson posted this full video review and GH5 article on Huffingtonpost:

It really is a revolution for compact video cameras in a way that cannot be overstated. This powerful camera takes filmmaking seriously and any filmmaker should take the GH5 seriously. While every other camera in this market, including the Sony A7SII and 5D Mark IV, comes with required workarounds to integrate them into your workflow, the Panasonic GH5 feels like it was created to fill all possible needs. Sure, it’s no A7SII in low light mostly due to the smaller sensor, but with an articulating touch screen, better ergonomics, amazing customization, 4k @ 60p, crazy slow motion, unlimited recording, dual card slots, better battery life, 10 bit video, and so much more, you should really consider how important it is to shoot at 25,000 ISO. For me, the Panasonic GH5 is the camera I was waiting for, well worth the $1,999 price tag, and flexible enough to navigate through a professional video shoot while still being compact enough for me to carry it unnoticed in a small bag on a trip to Disney World.

Lens Adapter with CPL for Micro Four Thirds Cameras

Share

Fotodiox posted this intro video of their Vizelex Polar adapter for Micro Four Thirds. The adapter sells for $99 (or 135 Euro) at Amazon US, Amazon DE, Amazon UK, Amazon FR, Amazon IT, Amazon ES.

We’ve all been there. You’re ready to shoot a gorgeous landscape, surging waterfall, or classic car… Suddenly you realize that reflection and haze are reducing detail and contrast, and the image is not as crisp as you know it could be. The solution used to be fumbling around for the right sized circular polarizer for your lens, but now with the new Polar Throttle, you can just dial in the CPL filter that’s built right into the lens adapter itself!
