5Camera is awesome but BUYER BEWARE!!!
By Amazon Customer
Love this camera. The stabilization has changed the way I film weddings. It's a thing of beauty to use a 70-200mm lens on a monopod for wedding toasts. The dual card slots is great to have. As one card runs out it switches to the next. I haven't played with the variable frame rate for slow mo video or the 4:2:2 but this is the most excited I've been to get a camera since I first got my GH1 all the years back. So how can I rate this so high with my title? Well my warning is not a defect of the camera but rather the sellers on Amazon.

You see I ordered four Gh5's through Amazon. It explicitly states the USA version. The problem was of those four that I ordered only one was the USA version. The other's were the UK, Canada and Australia. Normally I couldn't care less. They are basically the same camera except for one big difference. If you look at your manual the non us versions state that the warranty is only valid in those other countries. Basically meaning those versions have no warranty in the U.S.

Once again, love the camera but CHECK YOUR MANUAL! Look on the second page of the manual for what country your camera is intended for or in the manual contents for what region the limited warranty is good for. Based on my experience you have a pretty good shot of getting a non-US version with absolutely no warranty and if you don't check now you might not realize this until it's too late.

5Love it
By Lilfurbal
I'm no professional by any means, and also never used any previous Panasonic cameras. This caught my attention as it seems to be the smallest and cheapest thing to do amazing 4k 60 video. The fact that it also doubles as an excellent still photo camera really helped justify the price as I can effectively sell my Canon camcorder and old DSLR. Been playing with the GH5 for about two weeks now and it seems to do everything I'd like out of a camcorder and DSLR, in fact it easily outperforms them both. No longer do I have to decide if I want to record video, or take still photos, can do either or both with amazing results.

This camera has a lot of features, and has well more auto focus features than I am use to. I like the flexibility of the auto focus settings, seems very precise when you want it to be.

Pairing this with the new Leica 12-60mm lens I seem to have spoiled myself. Panasonic has made a great camera here.

5This is a beast!
By Dylan Furr
It's great for photos, video, and has cool features I never knew were possible. The post focus is a really rad feature. The high frame rate capabilites and the uncompressed video is the best thing about this camera though. It performs very well, very quiet, fast, great autofocus when you want it, cool touch screen, and a great feel in your hands.
I've used it for interviews, professional photoshoots, studio work, and music videos and it has yet to disappoint. Many people ask what gear I use and have even bought one for themselves after hearing about this and seeing the final products!

Highly recommend if you can scoop out the dough. Best all around for the money (don't forget the cost of lenses though and an extra battery if you use it a lot with the LCD - don't get Wasabi batteries, they are TERRIBLE).
