    For those who have been testing out the GH5, does it sill unnecessarily span longer takes?

    One of the things I really liked when I switched from the GH4 to the BMPCC is no spanning. Every clip is self contained into a single file for ProRes, or folder for RAW.

    Has Panasonic done away with this entirely unnecessary spanning, or do we editors still have to contend with this highly undesirable design flaw?

    From everything I've read ( including some great info from our own Barry Green ), the GH5 uses ExFAT SDXC card formatting and segments it's recordings at 96 GB. So 2 segments to fill a 128 GB card, and 3 segments to fill a 256 GB card.

    If you shoot AVCHD formats or use SDHC cards that are formatted as FAT32 you will back to the old 4 GB file segments. ( not that big of a deal for AVCHD if you use an import tool that will automatically stitch the 4 GB file segments back to the full clip size )

    Well, that's better than the GH4 did.

    Thanks.

    Panasonic told me there would be no clip spanning, but imagine TheDingo's information is accurate.

    Panasonic's written materials all say 96GB split.

    85 minutes at 150 Mbps.

    At 150Mbps UHD that is about 80 mins.

    Consider that on a 128gb card, the most you could ever get is one split. On a 256gb card, filled to the brim, the most it will do is create three clips. That's pretty decent, and it would take hours and hours of continuous recording to even get that.
