The GH5 is 2017 Camera of the Year

The GH5 is 2017 Camera of the Year?

by planetMitch2 Comments

Hugh Brownstone says the GH5 is 2017 Camera of the Year – is that what you're thinking?

There are a lot of good things to say about the Panasonic GH5 and tho I haven't had my hands on the Panasonic GH5, I trust Hugh and I think he's got a massive grasp on the latest cameras that have been released in 2017.

Hugh has also written a LOT for planet5D in the past (and we're hoping to have him back regularly very soon) and a lot of you told me how much you enjoy his contributions.

And the Panasonic GH5 is getting accolades from other sites as well (not like Hugh would be out there on a limb or anything! HA).

So, please watch what Hugh has to say about the Panasonic GH5.

I'm Already Calling It: The GH5 is 2017 Camera of the Year

After plunking down my own hard cash and then using it extensively over the last four months, it's clear to me that the GH5 is peerless for what it does and will not be superseded by any other camera this year. But your mileage may vary. Take a look. [more below]

  1. Close but it still suffers from the same problem the GH4 had.

    Both cameras in high fps modes butter down the footage. Theres a very less than desired creaminess to the quality of the footage.
