    Hi. For sports events, car events and weddings (and perhaps other corporate stuff if I can manage to get in), which camera would you recommand ? GH4/GH5 or Sony (a6500) ?

    I'm asking because I'm due to replace my camera (lumix GH2) and I want something reliable/all arounder.

    Thanks to answer

    I think the A6500 1080p modes may be of degraded quality and the GH5 seems to have reports of bad AF. Personally I wouldn't recommend the GH4. It really does depend what features you need. Obviously they are different sensor sizes and lens options etc which may be a consideration.

    A6300/6500 may overheat faster than a glowing bride too.

    There is a big difference in full sensor read-out speed between the A6500 and the GH5, with the A6500 being more than 2 times SLOWER than the GH5, so for sports or fast action shooting the GH5 might be a better choice. ( the Panasonic 5-axis stabilization is also noticeably better )

    If you need 4k, overheating probably kills the a6500 for weddings, and RS kills it for sports. It would be my camera of choice for lots of things because I love the DR (which kills GH4 and GH5 for me), but for this kind of use, I don't think it's a good idea.

    If you don't really need 4K, the Canon 77D or 80D may suit your needs better than the cameras you mentioned.

    I would have to say, for that list, probably neither. I'm assuming you are in somewhere around the $2000.00usd to $3000.00usd mark, you need versatility and you need it to run for hours at a time. That pushes you toward a "traditional" camera and the closest thing would be a JVC LS-300. FS5 and FS7 would also be a good choice. Maybe Black Magic but I keep hearing contradictory things about them.

    Actually, A9 might fit the bill ... except the bill is a bit pricey.

    Due to overheating i wouldn't be able to choose the A6500. It would be bad to have it shut down during a live event that couldn't be repeated.

    This video puts the DR of the GH5 V-Log ahead of Sony A7S II S-Log in real-world conditions...
