Panasonic GH5 Autofocus Test

Kai tests the Panasonic GH5 with Photogearnews.

“We got hold of a Panasonic GH5 pre-production sample from CVP this week. To test it out the autofocus and image stabilisation in video mode we sent Dan Chung to follow Kaiman Wong around while he films the latest review for his own channel. Please remember this is a pre-production camera and the autofocus, IS and image quality may all change by the time the camera comes out. This video is just to give you an idea of what the camera is currently capable of.

The lens was the Leica DG 12-60mm f2.8 kit lens that is Dual-IS compatible.

The technical stuff: Camera was set in Cinelike V gamma (the test camera did not have V-Log enabled sadly)

Autofocus was set to touch with a medium sized focus area most of the time. We tried to keep the AF area over the subject as much as possible.

ISO was set at 200 most of the time apart from the indoor shots which were 1600 (and lit by red lanterns so the colours were off) All the images are roughly graded using Filmconvert’s GH4 Cinelike V profile with FJ8533 ET film emulation.

Both in-body and lens Image stabilisation was turned on. No rig was used and the camera is completely handheld at all times.”
