Forget polycarbonate domes (they scratch like hell) and go for the large and beatifull 180 mm glas dome with focus knop adapter.

I think most people will recommend manual focus under water.

Anyway I believe that the autofocus works fine and really fast... is made for a still camera. To have a usefull autofocus for us I guess it shoud have a different behabior or "mode" when recording video.
Same thing with f steps... no point in changing aperture while recording because it "jumps" roughfully from one one value to another, not like a videocamera does.
GH54 or GH5 are still a photography camera:(


Have you seen the reports about the autofocus working considerably better if you use an external recorder?


This seems to indicate that the internal processing power is really limiting the performance.


Also, everything is much worse in 4K than 1080p. Also the manual acknowledges this fact.

Planning to make the switch from my AX100. The 10bit color space should really help quite a bit in color correcting UW stuff - I would hope! And if they deliver on their firmware update promise for summer (4k 10bit 60fps), then I don't see anything comparable and reasonably priced/sized coming up on the camcorder front. Been playing around with the GH5 overland for 2 weeks now. Not very intense as I had other things going on but hope to dip more deeply into it the coming days.


It's probabably not worse than the GH4.


However people seems to expect more in 2017 than 2015. Especially since several other hybrid cams have superb autofocus.

It's also a problem with the Olympus 60mm macro focus gear on the GH5.

My dealer has contacted Nauticam.


Ok. A friend have no issues with the 60 mm in in the standard flat port, but the Oly 7-14 zoom ring doesn't work for him.
