Up to 100% improved AF accuracy with one setting change on the GH5

One setting that could total transform the way your Panasonic GH5 autofocuses in ALL AF Modes!

Looks like click bait but really isn’t, watch this video and be as surprised as i was.

The figure of 100% better AF is due to twice as many AF samples and corrections being taken over the same time period, in real world this performs better as the AF system is more responsive and looses focus less.

Two caveats to this video;
1 Not all frame rates are improved, best results are in 30p and 25p!
2. This tests and improvements where seen when using adapter lenses and not proved using native Panasonic Lenses.

When you think about it it’s obvious really, your camera is running at a give frequency say 60Htz for NTSC, if your shooting at 30p and the shutter is open for half that time ie 180 Deg’s the camera runs a cycle to correct focus ie, acquire image, process, correct , if the total time this takes is greater than 1/60 Htz (which it will be as that’s the time taken to acquire) then the camera will wait to start the cycle again, the shorter acquire time means the camera doesn’t have to wait, it can run the process again! Hence twice the AF performance.

Enjoy and if this helps please share and like this video and if you would like to see more video’s like this why not subscribe.
