Marc:Something crazy happened to me this week: the tables were turned on me — I was interviewed by NPR.  Having done over a thousand hours of interviews with some of the biggest names in photography, I found it refreshing to be on the other end of the microphone, answering questions instead of asking them.

The interview started right out the gate with a tough question: “What makes a picture?”

We covered a lot of ground including the use of angles, why people are passionate about photography, anticipating the action, use of geometry and loads more, all while discussing examples of my work and telling the stories behind them.

8-bit vs 10-bit vs Prores HQ from the Panasonic GH5: What’s the best option?

Share

Wolfcrow tested the 10bit performance of the GH5:

One of the most confusing choices in the Panasonic GH5 is which video format do you pick? Your options are 10-bit 4:2:2, 8-bit 4:2:0 and
Prores or DNxHD via an external recorder.
Previously, I had made a video explaining why 10-bit 150 Mbps was a bad idea, so you might want to watch that first:

The two tests are
HDR test, with highlights near clipping and shadows all the way down. I’m shooting V-Log for best dynamic range.
Chroma keying test, my favorite. Waving a colorful duster against a poorly lit green screen. Enjoy!

And he also posted a second video with the full GH5 review:
