  1. FS7: View Post

    Iím interested to see how FF rolling shutter on the FX9 compares to itís behaviour in S35 mode. I canít help thinking there will be a gotcha with that. Iím currently totally underwhelmed by the FX9,...

    +1 for the AT 875R - I used it very effectively for 3+ years on the FS7.

    If you don't want to add a plate, I was very happy with the Smallrig 15mm rod mic mount.

    Also might be useful - if youíre using one of the user preset ďCĒ function sets on the dial, youíll need to programme any menu changes into that. Otherwise it defaults back to itís programmed state...

    I guess that's subjective - I'm comparing it with a 3+ year working knowledge of the FS7, which has a noticeably softer presentation - but which responds well to a gentle bit of sharpening when...

    Cheers Cary. It's the sharpening that's the issue for me - I'd like to have the option of seeing how the picture looks with less sharpening.

    Yes, both dialled right down. It’s a shame there’s nobody at Panasonic Lumix division to have a sensible dialogue with. The people at the trade shows are usually sales teams with a very low level...

    I went with Cine D instead of V Log on this big project I’ve just shot. I just couldn’t get consistent results with V Log in a fast paced mixed light environment, when testing, so went with the baked...

    Good point about IBIS. Has anyone else tried the full lock IBIS on the GH5? It's stunning - I literally don't need a tripod at all, except for long interviews. And then a quick button press puts you...

    Hmmm. I sold the FS7 a couple of months ago - I wanted a smaller, more agile setup. I've been shooting a 30 min doc for NHS UK on a GH5/GH5S combo. All looks OK, but controlling summer light in dark...

    I wrestled with similar questions on the GH5S and spoke with Panasonic UKs tech rep.

    This doesn’t directly answer your question, but may be useful to you. We concluded the XLR module was the way...

    My 2p:

    I’ve just finished a gruelling 2 week shoot, using a GH5 and 5S combo. I used the GH5 for actuality and the S for tripod mounted interviews. Bearing in mind that any camera system is...

    Ground loop crossed my mind. But with modern building controls? And both cams on the same power spur? I doubt it. Or was it an outdoor event with potentially dodgy electrics/generator etc? Would also...

    Good to hear from you, Mark!

    :) Looks like I started a fire, right?

    Ask me at the end of August, when we finish a 3 week shoot!

    I don’t miss the size/weight of the FS7 and 18-110 plus vlocks...

    However, it’s the LUT that Panasonic themselves distribute and specify for the GH5/S. I agree it’s confusing and undermines confidence. The test results yesterday suggest to me they either just...

    I've just shot some tests. I decided to focus mainly on V-Log L, as I'm most familiar with log shooting. I did also chuck a quick HLG test in:

    Custom white-balanced with Kenco Vari-ND.

    If it has, I’ve been struggling to find it. I know I’m late to the GH5 party, but all I’ve found is a sea of disinformation. I guess that’s the price of going for a prosumer product. Good to see some...

    Thanks - I'll give Paul's LUTs a try.

    Looks like zebras at 90% for HLG - will do some testing with that. Haven't used zebras for years - but they're a useful exposure tool for fast-paced shooting....

    I know I need to do some testing, but these are useful steers - thanks.

    How do you monitor and expose HLG? A lot of my work is fairly fast moving obs doc, so having the flexibility to get exposure...
  23. GH5 Where's everyone at with V-Log vs a Rec709 Profile?

    I've gone fully GH - with a GH5 rigged for actuality and GH5S for interviews on legs. Both VLogL-enabled. Atomos Shinobi monitor with built in LUTs.

    Agree with comments re stills - I gave up trying to use an adapted Canon 70-200 2.8 for AF stills - fine otherwise on FS7.

    I went completely native Sony - but went for the Sony 70-200/f4. Smaller,...

    I'll try and report back here with how I get on.

    I'm partly basing my switch to the GH5/S system on the experience of a couple of GH2s I used a few years back, with the original 12-35 and 35-100....
