The Panasonic GH5 In 2021?
Is GH5 Still Worth Purchasing in 2021?
Yes – Here’s Why!!!
Number One: The Price – The price of the GH5 is amazing both new or used, bang for your buck the features you get for just over $1000 is amazing. A pro level camera for both video and photo with dual card slots and a choice of lens that is pretty much endless – You’ll be hard pressed to find a better value camera on the market today.
Number Two: The colour profiles that come in the camera – From Cinelike D and Cinelike V, with the option to add V-Log. The colour profiles are amazing and allows filmmakers to grade GH5 footage to look highly professional and cinematic.
Number Three: The ability to shoot 4K at 60 frames per second, while many cameras still don’t offer this feature the GH5 was doing it back in 2017.
Number Four: The rotating swivel screen – This is another great feature that Panasonic uses on most of their micro four third cameras. The ability to shoot from many different angles, getting up high or getting down low – The swivel screen is another feature that will open up your videography and photography.
Number Five: In Body Stabilization – Having in body stabilization (IBS) on the GH5 allows filmmakers to not have to be reliant on gimbals, enabling the ability to shoot in many situations with less gear. And for photographers like myself syncing up the In Body Stabilisation with a Stabilized lens allows for more options in low light settings.
Now that is just 5 reasons why the GH5 is still a major player in today’s camera market – We also did not mention things like its small size and great build quality and the ability to fully customise its dials and buttons to your own shooting style, for a truly personal experience.
I’d be lost without my GH5 – It would be hard for me to change up systems now as the camera has become an extension of my personal photography style. What do you think? Is the GH5 still worth it in 2021?
