SDXC card advice for the Lumix GH5

Categories: Uncategorized No Comments

SDXC devices are backwards compatible, so they accept SD and SDHC memory cards. SDXC memory cards must only be used with SDXC devices and should never be used in non-compatible devices.

Video classes have been assigned to better support high resolution video recordings. Supported formats for video recordings on MicroSD cards include:

  • 4k (V6, V10, V30, V60, V90)
  • 8k (V60 and V90)
  • 3D (V60 and V90)
  • 360 degree (V60 and V90)

SDXC cards Class 10 Speed U3 recommended as a minimum for the GH5

Two of the most confusing parts of the GH5…No crop factor and SDXC cards at 400Mbps

Categories: Uncategorized 1 Comment

Panasonic are boasting “No crop factor” on the new GH5 but this is leading to major confusion. With the new GH5, it seems that we have the ability to now use the full width of the sensor as seen above while this was not possible on the GH4 giving a slight crop which is more noticeable using wide angle lenses also causing noticeable sensor noise.  Because you are not cutting into the GH5 sensor it is less noisy compared to the GH4 by almost a stop, so like most of us I would refrain going above 800 ISO on the GH4 you can push the boat out to at least 1600 ISO on the GH5.

This will be tested on our GH5 when we get one in March.

During summer of 2017 we are getting a new firmware, upgrading the camera from 4K 150Mbps to 400Mbps (Switchable via the cameras menu) using the new V60 SD card association protocol (60Mbps). 4K up till now required a card to have a U3 rating with a 64G card costing about £23 but until Panasonic can give end users clarity on exactly what cards will cover the new speed of 400Mbps we are in the dark.

Due to work commitments I can no longer update GH4 Crew regularly, please refrain from posting questions as I won’t be able to reply to them. As you can see I still use the GH4 but the YAGH has been sold onto a good friend of mine.
