Bruce:GH5 would appeat NOT to work with Metabones Speedbooster XL 0.64x and Sigma 18-35 f1.8 (Canon EF mount). Perhaps you could share with your readers and ask if anyone knows what I am doing wrong – it does not appear to be a stabilizer issue as same lens works fine with Commlite smart adapter and same settings.


Ivo:The Panasonic GH5 is the first Panasonic camera with several camera profiles in the Camera Calibration tab in Lightroom or Photoshop!

FilmConvert released the new profile for the GH5.

Newsshooter says the GH5’s Extra Tele Conversion function gives your lenses added reach with no quality loss!

Newsshooter tested the GH5’s Extra Tele Conversion function. And they say it gives your lenses added reach with no quality loss:

The Extra Tele Conversion mode on the GH5 is very impressive and Panasonic have certainly given news, documentary and wildlife shooters a real reason to look very seriously at the camera. You could only dream of being able to shoot at these focal lengths on other camera systems at the GH5’s price point.

Her eis their test video:

GH5 review by CameraLabs: “a no-brainer for videographers but also very respectable for stills”

CameraLabs posted the full Panasonic GH5 review:

Unsurprisingly it’s the movie modes which really impress with unlimited 4K video internally at 60p or in 10-bit at 30p (or both if you’re using an external recorder), and a wealth of features including vectorscope and waveform displays, anamorphic capture, programmable focus transitions, optional XLR inputs and very flat output (especially with the V Log L update), all making it one of the most portable and professional movie solutions for the money. The GH5 is a no-brainer for video pros but also becomes a highly compelling stills camera too – Highly Recommended.
