Filming underwater, I find trying to use a fully manual mode is hard, the changing conditions, lighting etc lends itself to using one of the semi auto modes. I use Multi meter mode also, as it doesn't cause big shifts in exposure if using one of the auto modes.
With the GH5 and GH5s where AutoISO works with fixed apertures and shutter speeds (and the ISO performance is a non-issue) the need to 'monitor' exposure to me is a bit of a non-issue, with the GH4 i tried full manual and trying to adjust, but failed most of the time.
I only tool I find useful is the RGB parade, if doing a MWB on my monitor. But the GH5 screen I try and leave as bare as poss.
