DxOmark Test the GH5 Sensor
DxOmark have been busy putting the sensor from the Panasonic Lumix DMC GH5 through it’s paces to determine how it performs compared to it’s siblings. Unsurprisingly the new sensor is an improvement, offering increased dynamic range when compared to the likes of the GH4:
Like its predecessor the GH4, there’s no doubt the Panasonic GH5 is oriented toward videographers, but there’s still plenty to like about the camera for stills use. In spite of the increase in pixel count to 20-MPix, noise remains at the same level as the earlier 16-Mpix GH4. Even when compared to the maker’s GX8 that uses a similar 20-MPix sensor, the GH5 has slightly improved dynamic range and color sensitivity.
The GH5 is a very attractive camera indeed offering what seems like a fine balance of both video and still image performance. Check it out below:
