Panasonic G85 Review at Imaging Resource: “very impressed by its performance”

While the GH5 is the camera most of you are dreaming to own the G85 is the one that is likely to be owned buy most of you. It probably is the best bang of the buck in the MFT system as it delivers a lot for a very affordable price. Imaging Resource posted the full Panasonic G85 review:

The Panasonic G85 is an excellent addition to Panasonic’s camera lineup and a boasts a healthy array of upgrades over the G7. It includes numerous high-end features, particularly with regard to the camera body itself and its 4K video features without leaving the mid-range price point of its predecessor. We were very impressed by its performance across the board and combined with the versatility of the MFT lens mount, the G85 is easy to recommend as it is a great all-around DSLR-style mirrorless camera — a definite addition to our list of Dave’s Picks.

We talk a lot about the new E-m1II and Gh5. But one of the most popular MFT cameras is actually….a Drone! The DJI Inspire 2 (here at Amazon) has a MFT mount camera is capable of recording amazing videos.

Tony & Chelsea Northrup tested the Inspire. Just watch the video to see why the DJI Inspire 2 is probably the most popular Drone of the world.

Dpreview publishes the full GH5 Review: “excellent all-around proposition for hybrid video and stills photographers”

The full GH5 Dpreview review is now online. The camera earned the Gold Award with the following conclusion:

If you’re primarily a stills shooter, the GH5 would make a fine choice if you’re looking at the Four Thirds ecosystem, but there are arguably better options out there for the money. That said, the tweaks to the JPEG engine and the 9fps burst shooting with reliable autofocus make the GH5 an excellent all-around proposition for hybrid video and stills photographers.

If you’re serious about video, it’s hard to go wrong. This camera can probably deliver the goods unless you have very specialized needs, and if you’re just learning, it’s a camera you can grow with. But what if you’re already a GH4 user? Think of it like this: the GH5 isn’t just a camera that does everything your current camera can do, plus a bunch of other things. This is a camera that does everything your current camera can do, but better (often by a wide margin)… plus a bunch of other things. So yes, it’s probably worth it.

GH5 news and reviews roundup (Richard Wong, Photographyblog, Peter Gregg)

Richard Wong posted the full GH5 review:

To me, the most important improvement is that the camera can be used to create high quality video footage without any external accessory (okay, maybe apart from a good microphone). While the weight of the camera is a bit heavier than the GH4, in real life, it is a lot lighter as you could just carry the camera when you are filming and leave most of those external accessories at home. This is a dream comes true for any videographer that shoot run and gun type of video.

New GH5 review by Photographyblog:

The sheer number of options available on the GH5 is undoubtedly initially confusing, but that’s merely an observation rather than a criticism. If you typically shoot both stills and video, there’s simply nothing to challenge the Panasonic GH5 at this price-point and in such a portable format, making it a worthy winner of our highest accolade – Essential!

Thiery:Hihi, just to let you know that i’ve managed to get HSS 1/8000 working on the GH5 using Cactus v6 ii triggers and Godox AD360’s. I thought that this could be interesting for all stills shooters out there. I posted the info on the GH5 FB group. here’s a (hopefully working) link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/pansonicgh5/1690908787875489/?notif_t=like&notif_id=1491253744292961#
