The short film ‘Frayed’ starring Mari Beaseley and photographed using Panasonic’s GH5 Camera. Plot – A young girl vs an unseen monster!
Shot in four hours over an afternoon – this was my first use of the Panasonic GH5 – testing various ISO, low light and shutter functions as well as some slow motion. Testing for slow and fast motion artefacts (in camera and on screen). As well as instances for turning the in-camera image stabilisation on and off. A little tech info :- Footage captured using the 10bit 4k Internal recording & Panasonics’ VLOG function @ 25FPS (no external recorder) with an the Aputure EF lens adaptor for canon mount lenses. Footage then transcoded in Handbrake for editing using Avid Media Composer. Finished in DaVinci Resolve Studio. Presented in 1080p & Stereo. The 3D LUT I found that worked for me was actually the ARRI 3D preset in Resolve, with obvious individual tweaks to colour balance and exposure / gamma dialled in to taste afterwards. For a super in-depth technical overview of the capabilities of the camera my personal opinion is Cinema 5D are the best place to go for this – https://www.cinema5d.com/panasonic-gh…
My own conclusions have led me to use an external recorder to get the best image from the sensor and best results for image quality are ISO’s between 400 & 800 and not beyond.
