So you are saying the the GH5 does not have enough HP to handle its recording functions AND auto focus without using an external recorder?

 

This should not come as a big surprise as auto focus is worse in 4K mode vs HD mode also on the GH4.

 

Apparently the auto focus works even better if you don't record at all.

 

Please see page 166 in the "Operating Instructions for Advanced Features" for the GH5:

 

"To ensure highly accurate focus, 4K motion pictures are recorded at reduced auto focus speeds. It might be difficult to focus on the subject with Auto Focus, but this is not an malfunction." 

 

Sine auto focus seems to be substantially better as long as you don't record anything, this suggest that the CPU runs out of steam during actuall recording. Even more so in 4K mode.

There appears to be dozens of opinions on the autofocus. Hard to say if it is as bad as many say, or if there are setting changes that could improve things.

This is probably the only positive one I have watched so far https://youtu.be/zG-G3tIhaig
 

 

This test was with an external recorder only. And thus totally flawed.

 

When you use internal recording almost all procesing power is taken from the auto focus calculations and used to encode the bitstream it seems.

New picture on Instagram. The hinged door has gone in favour of a pure "pro dslr" design.
