Bad noise - production quality issues?
May 16, 2018
I believe there must be some production quality issues with these GH5s cameras. The one I received produced terrible horizontal banding in VFR mode (that's to do slowmotion above 60FPS), making the footage unusuable. I also noticed significant noise at ISOs above 1600. Seems weird, coming from a camera marketed as a low light tool.
I have, however, seen clean footage online from this camera, so I don't know what's going on. It seems that a few others have run into what I've experienced. Panasonic hasn't been very helpful on the above issues, and so I've returned mine. I would stay away from this camera until the issues above are resolved.
