When do you expect Panasonic to announce the GH5?

As early as Photokina or the first week of February 2016 (two years after the GH4)?

Do you expect a new 4/3 sensor or s35 size for more light (higher ISO)?

If s35, do you expect a different mount or just more MFT lens that cover the new Sensor?

Will there be a new Cine lens released at the same time?

Will it have a H265 codec option?

Will it have a larger and/or lighter (monocot) body?

Will there be more programmable options for the buttons?

Will it be capable of recording 6k or 8k internally?

Will it have higher frame rates like 1080P120?

How long after the announcement of the GH5 will they keep making and selling the GH4?

Samples and videos

4K crop calculations:

Stills horizontal resolution - 4608
Cinema 4K horizontal resolution - 4096
4K horizontal resolution - 3840

This makes crop:

  • Cinema 4K - 1,125x
  • 4K - 1,2x

of course, it is additional crop (to 2x typical for m43), so you must multiple two if you need to know relative FF crop.

Panasonic is introducing a second advanced compact camera, the FZ2500. This camera utilizes the same 20.1MP 1" MOS sensor as the LX10, but optimizes video performance with the inclusion of DCI 4K video recording and a true 24 fps frame rate, in addition to more conventional UHD 4K and Full HD recording modes. Also benefitting videographers, this camera includes Panasonic's CINELIKE D and CINELIKE V picture profiles for better grading capabilities, and V-Log L can be added via an optional upgrade. Additionally, high bit rate recording up to 200 Mbps is supported in both MP4 and MOV formats; video can be output over HDMI with a 4:2:2 10-bit signal; there is no recording duration limit; and a built-in ND filter can be used for enhanced control over exposure settings while recording.

More than just a video-optimized camera, however, the FZ2500 also sports a slew of specs for stills and movie users, such as a 50 fps continuous shooting rate with an electronic shutter, or 12 fps with a mechanical shutter, and an expanded sensitivity range of up to ISO 25600 for working in dim light. The built-in 20x Leica DC Vario-Elmarit f/2.8-4.5 lens covers a 24-480mm equivalent focal-length range, and 5-axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ controls the effects of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. A free-angle 3.0" 1.04m-dot LCD touchscreen permits intuitive control and viewing ease from a variety of working positions, and a 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder is also available. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi also supports wireless image sharing and remote camera control.

GH1 to use with GH2 in multicam projects Mon, 03 Oct 2016 03:45:49 -0600 TimTomTum 15837@/talks/discussions Hey gang,

I am reading through the information about the GH1 not being reliable hacked etc. Is anyone still using the GH1? What hacks are the best and the most reliable? Would you recommend using the GH1 still? I want to shoot multicam projects in the next months and the GH1 would be great to buy 2-3 cause they are so cheap used.

Cheers, Tim

Which Setting is on Auto on GH3? Tue, 07 Jun 2016 08:55:29 -0600 IS2 15184@/talks/discussions Hi guys,

I've been having a nightmare on a few recent shoots with my GH3. I'm shooting in manual mode and yet when I pan the lighting sometimes completely changes, as if there's an auto setting kicking in to change the light. It's giving me loads of headaches in post, because a clip that is otherwise well-shot, is suddenly having its lighting completely drop in brightness for example, during a smooth movement.

I've tried to look for this mystery setting to no avail and was wondering if you could help me out with what to look for.

So far I have got: i.Resolution - off Metering mode - center Continuous AF - off

GH3 & HDMI stream : continuous signal after 5 minutes Mon, 11 Feb 2013 13:43:29 -0700 xniala 6089@/talks/discussions Hello, I'm setting up a particular workflow for recording an audio-video HD stream via HDMI on a computer via a capture card. I'm planning to buy a GH3, But someone on a french website warned me that when the LCD or the EVF shuts down, the stream stops. The only setting appears to be the LCD/EVF "wake" time : max 5 minutes. So after 5 minutes no more HDMI stream !

I need the camera to be on 6 or 7 hours per day, sending HDMI stream continuously (GH3 not recording : in pause mode). Someone could confirm the 5 min issue ? If it's true, could it be fixed via hack or something ?

PS, Vitaliy answered me earlier in this thread :

but I'm wondering if someone with a GH3 could check this 5 minutes issue.

Thanks Al

Panasonic G6: overexposes 1 to 2 stops Wed, 28 Sep 2016 23:59:54 -0600 gameb 15813@/talks/discussions I am still using 2 good old G6 for a documentary project, but I have an issue (not new) with it. When I choose the exposure through the viewer and it looks fine to me, the result, after transfering to the computer, is an overexposure of 1 to 2 stops easily. Is there anyway to control what the viewer indicates me, so I can do the right exposure straight away? I am using only primelenses (Nokton 25mm, SLR 17.5, Takumar 85mm), so I have the ... "shoot without lens" button selected in G6 menu. Thanks for helping.

Mixing GH4 24P with 23.976 GH3 Footage Mon, 26 Sep 2016 15:54:32 -0600 IS2 15799@/talks/discussions I've just got my GH4 and have a shoot coming up this week and would love to use cinema 4K at true 24p. My B camera is a GH3 and I was just wondering if I could mix the GH4's true 24p with the GH3's 23.976fps footage without causing any sync issues etc?

Why Panasonic exposure so simple and limited? Sat, 28 May 2016 12:33:19 -0600 Vesku 15142@/talks/discussions GH3, GH4 and other high end/professional Panasonic cameras has severe limitation in video exposure options and features. Many pocket cameras and cell phones has more versatile exposure. Why Panasonic has decided to leave many basic exposure tools out of the tool box? Lets look the GH4:

-not showing basic exposure information (aperture, shutter and iso).

-no auto iso in M with EV comp although it has a dedicated EV comp button. In fact I can not find any other reasonable use for that button than EV comp with auto iso in M.

-no iso limit like in photo modes.

-AE lock button works crippled.

-full auto uses very high shutter speeds.

-no shutter speed limit.

-all special features like long shutter speeds or slow motion works only after everything (AE+AF) is in manual.

-all Panasonic objectives has stepping aperture.

It cant be a lack of knowledge. Panasonic has limited exposure options in purpose. But why?

GH4 External Vlog White Balance Metadata Tue, 30 Aug 2016 02:00:21 -0600 club_irate 15611@/talks/discussions Is there a way to view the precise Kelvin reading of GH4 footage in Premiere Pro CC metadata or any other software? The DP shot in varied White Balances in V log External & i need to be able to get the accurate temperature data of the footage he shot on.

Also, i am using Filmconvert (GH4+VLOG) to grade. The WB parameter (in Film Convert) is an offset rather than a setting in my past experience. Would it then actually wreck my clip if i dialed the Film Convert WB parameter over to 3200K from it's default position on Daylight if the footage was shot on 3200K too?

GH2 HDMI died Tue, 28 Jun 2016 11:11:38 -0600 Unsub 15290@/talks/discussions The HDMI output on my GH2 just suddenly died. I'm using 7" Lilliput on it, nothing changed, all of a sudden it just stopped working. First, the monitor just said "no signal" but after some tweaking on/off, it just started to stay black or blue as it was receiving a signal but didn't know what to do with it. An older flat TV says "signal not supported" and a brand new LG doesn't recognize anything. The GH2 clearly thinks it's connected to external monitor, as the on-board screen flickers when connecting, ExTele is disabled, etc., so everything seems normal at that end. Tried different cables and resetted the firmware.. What else to do or try?

Panasonic GH1 SD Card Door Wed, 24 Aug 2016 08:44:32 -0600 adamxp12 15579@/talks/discussions OK so I have been a reader on this forum for quite a long time, even before I made an account, but this is my first post, I have a GH1 which I still think is an awesome camera for the work I do, I don't see the point in spending lots of money on a newer model if the GH1 does all I want + without the stupid EU 30 minute time limit thanks to the hack, I like to do timelapse's and so the no limit recording time is a feature that only a brand new GH4 can support but £1k is way too much for a 17y/o to spend on a camera

So that's where this comes in, the SD card door on my GH1 recently broke, not sure how but it has, it don't latch properly at the front of the camera making it protrude, I saw a post about this on personal-view where someone fixed it by gluing a needle to it, but with quite vague directions, the only other solution I can think of is either buying a used G1/GH1 just for a door, or to somehow figure out how to fix my door

Does anyone have an idea of how it can be fixed? pictures would really help here as I have no idea what a non broken door looks like, its not one of them things I really paid attention to before it broke
