It’s hard to say that much positive about Canon given their consistent betrayal of the lower end of their products. Yet their tools are still viable in the hands of a competent media producer.
We were disappointed with what was upgraded in the LX100 Mark II considering 4 years had passed. These are incremental changes and Panasonic didn’t do anything special. Yet this remains a great little camera that does 4K video and will definitely be a competitor in the travel camera category.
Props to Panasonic for continuing to support their products long after release. Even though we have had lots of love for the Blackmagic Pocket 4K lately, we still shoot and do not forget all the amazing value products Panasonic has provided us. Here are some examples:
We have nothing against Max Yuryev. We find him to be honest and he corrects his mistakes. The thing about this test is that it’s testing resolution and sharpness, which is only one aspect of video quality. We would trade dynamic range and color for sharpness any day of the week. We’re still happy to see this test and appreciate the efforts that went into producing this.
The Panasonic GH5 is not known for having the best autofocus. It’s not totally unusable but it’s not the camera you buy if autofocus is your number one priority. I’m not sure why the Nikon Z7 is being compared against it, but we’re still happy to have the comparison.
We enjoy people being minimal and creative like Joshua Morin for his trip to Colombia. As technology continues to shrink we should expect even better capabilities from these collections of small gear.
This title might sound familiar but this is a new comparison video and worth a look. This is not a slight against the Panasonic GH5. It’s still a capable and valuable hybrid camera that for some purposes will be a better suited than the Pocket 4K. But for absolute image quality we cannot deny we prefer the Pocket 4K.
These are prototypes that are being shown in this video. We’re looking forward to getting a feel for the video capabilities of this camera, as Panasonic more so than all the other brands comes through on the video front for their consumer products.
This gets closer than previous comparisons into showing us the differences between the Panasonic GH5S and the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K. You can’t really go wrong with either camera, and there are reasons to choose one over the other. We’re still liking the image out of the Pocket 4K more.
