Thoughts on comparing 8-bit and 10-bit footage from the Panasonic GH5

Share

This video from Wolfcrow is specifically made to address a confusion many people seem to be having as to why there aren’t any significant differences between the 8-bit and 10-bit footage in the Panasonic GH5, as of March 2017.

But keep in mind that MATH is not everything. As reported by Slashcam and Osamu there seems to be already a 10Bit advantage with the current 150Mb/s compression. And this is and interesting test image by Randy Wheeler:

The external output on the GH4 doesn’t get compromised as shown in this pic so I would assume that the GH5 output won’t get compromised either:

GH5 at Amazon, BHphoto, Adorama and Panasonic US. In EU at Amazon.de, Cyberport.de and ParkCamera.
