Mark recently upgraded to Panasonic’s excellent new camera, the GH5.
In the world of mirrorless and DSLR cameras, a lot of manufacturers are brushing over 4K video capture. Canon? Doesn’t want to know. Nikon? Miles behind. Not so Panasonic, whose GH5 is one of the most adept 4K capture devices available today, capable of shooting up to 4K at 60fps. It’s only major competitor is the hugely impressive (and hugely expensive) Sony A99 II.
Mark has matched this up with the Metabones Ultra Speedbooster for his Canon Glass and an Atomos Inferno monitor.
The Ninja Inferno is the secret ingredient to unlock the professional capability of 4K 60p cameras like the Panasonic GH5. Bypass the internal recording limitations and take full advantage of the sensor by recording to the camera’s maximum colour accuracy, colour resolution and dynamic range with 4:2:2 10-bit V-Log-L recorded as full I-frame’s to high bitrate Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR. The 10-bit calibrated HDR panel takes the guesswork out of exposing for V-Log-L and is backed up by a suite of professional scopes that can be used even in direct sunlight thanks to the 1500nit panel brightness.
