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.

5Love this beast! Amazing Versatile! Loaded with features!
By Amazon Customer
The LUMIX GH5 is a dream come true! Panasonic has hit a huge home run with this camera! Cinema 4K recording at 24fps internally! 4K at 60fps 8bit 150mps internally! 400mps with update coming soon! 180fps in full 1080 FHD internally! The slow motion on this camera is buttery smooth! The size and grip is fantastic! What it's raining out? No problem this camera with the Leica 12-60mm lens is water resistant! It's also free resistant for shooting in low temperatures! Battery life is way better than the Sony's but not as good as the GH4 with how fast this camera processes it uses more juice. So be sure to pick up some spare batteries. Dual memory cards that can be hot swapped so you can continue constant recording with no overheating! Very grainless recording up to 1600 ISO. With additional purchase you can shoot in VlogL with a dynamic range of 12 stops when shooting at a native ISO of 400. Internal audio level meters, very good mic for this size of camera onboard. Zebras, focus assist, waveform and vector scope meters are all onboard. There are many customizable buttons and the view finder flips out, up, down and forward toward the lens is super bright and clear and also a touchscreen! The menus are very easy to navigate and well thought out! There is now 5 axis image stabilization on the sensor and if you are using a lens like the Leica 12-60mm it has power IOS. So you get two levels of stabilization working together. What does that mean? That means you can walk and record rock steady video! There has been a lot of controversy over the autofocus but I have found if you put it on either face detect or single point and press the shutter half way down to get it to lock on first it works very well. All in all this is an amazing camera for the price! For all the features and how well this works in the field I'd be happy if I spent twice the price! Go create something amazing!

5The stills are great as well
By McDaniel Photo
Have only spent a few days getting to know this camera. The video I'm getting, even with my limited knowledge is stunning. The stills are great as well. The only thing I don't like is when shooting still at fastest fps setting, the viewfinder seems to not be able to keep up and the refresh looks kind of like slow motion. But it still gets the shots and for all I know it's a setting I haven't learned yet.
