NewsShooter: Panasonic GH5 Detailed Interview With Panasonic and Griffin Hammond

Yet another very video centric interview about the new Panasonic GH5. It sounds like they haven’t tested many accessories on the camera yet so speed boosters might vignette a little more than on video centric cameras like the blackmagic. I am also excited to see the anamorphic content that cinematographers create with the GH5. Panasonic is providing a lot of very high level video functions to Professional and Amateur for a very reasonable price.

Panasonic GX800 and FZ82

Panasonic’s pitch for the GX800 and FZ82. It’s very interesting that the m43 compact cameras are priced incredibly well to compete with 1-inch sensor cameras, while the professional line-up is a little over priced. I would really like someone ask a representative how they came up with the pricing scheme for their new camera line-up. The GX/FX/G are all incredible values and compare well against APS-C cameras that are slightly more expensive.

Lok Shows Off Panasonic’s New Lenses

You won’t learn much from Lok’s latest video, but it’s good to see these lenses and how one of them compares to its full frame equivalent f/4 lens. The size difference is pretty startling if you’re not used to seeing it.
