Hey, that GH5 sure looks like a winner. I've seen at least two videos shot with the GH5 that look pretty great. I'm not here to call anyone out, but while one video (shot in NYC) looked impressive, the other (shot in Oregon) looked flat out gorgeous. That's part of the trick of marketing of course.

Not 125 times I brought my camera out and shot some footage of a flower or a friend standing in a forest with the sun setting behind him or any of this other nonsense people shoot and upload to Vimeo. 125 working, paying shoots.Read More
