In Topic: Color Correcting Purple Water

Looks good to me! I still usually white balance my GH4 on the palm of my hand. Gets me near enough, as I'm correcting everything anyway, and I don't have to take a slate.

There's a pretty good review here. Very little on underwater use though:

Just wish it would do 4k 60p to use as a B camera with a GH5 or whatever.

It's on the original Pana press release linked above.


Panasonic today announced that it has developed a new Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) Camera LUMIX GH5 that is capable of recording smooth, high-precision 4K 60p/50p and faithful 4:2:2 10-bit 4K video*3 for the first time in the world*1.



*3 In 4K/30p, 25p, 24p, 23.98p video recording.


Thanks. Great for the 24p "film look" shooter then, but not great for the 50/60p "TV look" shooter. Still, it's a lot to offer in camera. I hope they don't go too far with the compression to make 4:2:2 10-bit 4K fit into a reasonable bit rate/file size. I wonder if any of the 1080 modes will have it.

Thanks. So in my case, the 4:2:2 10bit is rather irrelevant, since I'd only want to shoot 4k 60p underwater. I'm not as crazy for that as others are anyway. 4:2:0 8-bit serves me well enough for YouTube with careful white balance and color correction.


So the card is still an SD card variant, and not something big and super expensive. No problem with that.
