New detailed 10 bit vs 8bit GH5 test by the German Slashcam site

8 Bit vs 10 Bit Panasonic GH5 vs GH4 – the difference

If you can read German I suggest you to check out the ongoing GH5 testing by Slashcam:

Test : Panasonic GH5 Sensor Verhalten – Auflösung, Slowmo, Rolling Shutter
Praxistest : Panasonic GH5: 10-Bit 4K V-Log L Workflow, 180 fps Zeitlupe, Focus Transition u.a. (1)
Kurztest : 8 Bit vs 10 Bit: Panasonic GH5 vs GH4 – der Unterschied in der Praxis

I will not give you the google translated links as it really makes a very bad translation. But so far they are very impressed by the performance! And they certainly see an improved on the 10bit footage as it has less banding than 8bit.

Panasonic GH5 Review Vs Sony a7S II and Nikon D750 by Fstoppers

Fstoppers posted their full GH5 review and concludes:

The GH5 is a pretty impressive video camera but it isn’t perfect. I do wish that the ISO performance was a little bit better. I’m not sure if the camera really needs to be 20MP as I imagine most people who buy it will be using it for video. Perhaps if it was only 8MP (the exact size of 4K video) it would be a little better in low light. And if they are going to make the sensor 20MP I would have really appreciated a legitimate “digital zoom” that was actually useful.
One major benefit to the smaller sensor size though, seems to be the inclusion of e-stabilization, which simply does not work on full camera sensors at this time due to rolling shutter. We have to take the good with the bad but in the case of the GH5 it’s mostly good. It’s only real competitor seems to be the a7S II and if its successor, the a7S III, finally removes the record limit, can overcome all overheating issues, plus improve stabilization, the GH5 may no longer my first choice but as things stand today, I’m excited to make the GH5 our standard video camera here at Fstoppers.
