Also, I can’t emphasize enough how important low light ability is in a camera. From what I have seen about the new GH5 it doesn’t have the same abilities as the Sony A7SII. Which ever camera you end up going with take a hard look at the low light. No matter what quality of 4K you get won’t make a difference if it doesn’t handle low light. Another user had some issues with color on Sony for Video. I would take a look at the Slog3 because it gives you a lot of control in color in post. Also what is the end result for your footage. Do you really need 4:2:2?

Why is low light ability so important for underwater video? I can count on one hand the number of times I've had to push the ISO to 3200 underwater. And pretty much every camera from the past few years can handle ISO 1600 just fine. But you'll be shooting in the ISO 100-800 range most of the time anyway.  I think you'll be hard-pressed to find many people that agree with you that low light capabilities are more important than good white balance/color reproduction. There's a whole thread discussing the limitations of Sony mirrorless cameras underwater in the video forum.


Advising people to shoot in Slog3 underwater is also quite questionable, especially on a camera that records in an 8-bit h.264 codec. Log encoding doesn't give you more control of color in post. It preserves more highlight/shadow detail. In actuality, you have less color information to work with and banding become an issue much more quickly when working with 8-bit encoded log.

In Topic: IS IT WORTH IT? GH5s - No Stabilization

Noise has basically never been an issue for me shooting the GH5 underwater. You can usually open up to F5.6, so ISO never really goes over 1600. So.. for underwater use, I see no advantage to the GH5s over the GH5. The lack of in-body image stabilization is a big negative, on the other hand.
