      So, do you think the G85 is still a good camera in 2019? The price is hard to pass up. Also, did you get the Sony when you reached 10k subs? You have almost 4 times that now. (38k)

      It is still a great camera at that price point. I didn't get A7R III, but I I actually got A7 III around the time I had about 10K subscribers :D

      DSTE makes a battery grip that comes with a wireless trigger that works perfectly. I paid $65 CAD for mine, and it's dropped to $55 now. Pretty cheap if you want to try one without the $350 price tag.

      As much as I'd wish this was the perfect camera, there's still the sensor's color depth which doesn't match that of APS-C and FF cameras, is that because it's a smaller sensor? I like the fact that Panasonic makes some of the lightest lenses, and it's unfortunate that they don't let you choose to buy it alone, to choose what lens you want. I'm very interested in purchasing a camera like this in the future. Personally, I wish it had at least 24 mp. Despite having lower dynamic range than larger sensors, I think that the fact that telephoto lenses can be smaller might be a perfect tradeoff.

      Generally there is no need to be concerned about color depth on any modern camera and if you look at DxO results, you also need to read their explanation: "A color sensitivity of 22bits is excellent, and differences below 1 bit are barely noticeable."

      I want to get a 4k Camera to shoot 24fps for my youtube channel/ Close up review videos/ Vlogs and some skating content. I have watched alot of material but can`t really find too much that justifies buying a 1600 USD G9 to me compared picking up a new 2 year old GX85 model for half the price. Given with the youtube compression even on 4K, do you guys recommend the G9 over the GX85 for 4K filming? Yes the camera has some great features for stills but i need a 4K 24fps camera and the latest firmware seemed to fix a lot of the auto focus issue.

      Usually I would agree, but "body cap" lenses are so bad they are literary not wort trying, it only has two focus positions and F8 on MFT is only usable on bright day. Judging optical qualities of a lens is shop is also quite difficult.

      The Hybrid Shooter it is wide angle though and inexpensive. They sounded like funds were limited, so it is an option they can try in a shop and see if it fits their needs (as we don't know what they need it for, it may be ideal for what they are intending to use it for?). Just offering an option for them to explore...

      Haha! ; Even though you want to keep your G85, you are just about convincing me to trade my GX8 for an A6500 or maybe even an A7!

      I mostly shoot stills, and no longer professionally. But I expect a high degree of performance from my equipment. I just traded my Canon EOS-M due to its disappointing 12mP resolution. I'm finding that APS-C was really not so bad itself, just that the EOS-M was Canon's half-hearted attempt at mirrorless. So, it's gone.

      I like the tilt EVF and twist/tilt LCD of the GX8, but I'm not sure the 4:3 won't overcome that. I like a thin, cine-like, horizontal format, like 3:2, even for stills.

      Well, I'm glad I'm in a position to buy used on eBay and play around with cameras. Doing so with motorcycles and cars just about broke me!

      Hey there than you for your video man! I have a question, i had the possibility to work with a gh5 for a month and i liked it, i saw the g9 coming out and i wasnt sure anymore about which one to choose since i m in the middle between photo and videomaking, i like the ibis, hopefully autofocus better in the g9 , i dont really care about the 10 bit since i usually use 120fps to film video. The thing that holds me down N coming to the question is, i noticed g9 as g85 have longgop codec at 28mbs at 1080, gh5 100mbs. Less mbs should have less color information and a lower quality footage, i never had the possibility to test the g85, what are your thoughts about it? Thank you for your time

      The Hybrid Shooter In reply to Ak Man Fuoco

      100 mbps captures more information than 28 mbps, question is whether you do very heavy color grading and if you can take full advantage of that 100 mbps codec. In reality those high MB codecs in GH5 provide just very slight advantage at the cost of increased performance requirements for post production. I shoot very little 1080p but I have never had problems with codec falling apart in color grading with G85.

      You said give an opinion of what you should get. I'd say an A7Riii and a G9, they are the perfect companions! ;) But only if money grows on trees where you live. It doesn't here, unfortunately. If you are primarily shooting with a G85 and A6500, and have a limited budget, do not get either. Wait for the A7iii or get a good used A7Rii for stills. Save money for a good Sony lens or two--and believe me you will have to save for them because yowsa! $$$$. It would be just way cheaper to get a G9 if you have to have get gouged on a new camera that will depreciate really quickly anyhow. Get one of the premium Pana/Oly lenses and you're still saving a lot of money over a split Sony/Panasonic system. I think the G9 will make the A6500 redundant, but so would the A7Riii.

Regarding A7R III, it will depend how much time I will be able to allocate for content creation and how will my channels grow.

I would say the 25mm is more useful, especially if you also want to take shot of your wife with your son.

      G85 or x-t20?

      about 1 year ago
    • Franc Peret
      Franc Peret In reply to muttyhc

      I am using Panasonic since the GH1/GH2/GH3/GH4/G85 and I always had interest in Fujifilm offer as I like their handling of color the best and I think their lens pricing and quality is really great. I checked the camera, used a while one of my student Fuji but not the XT-20 (I am teaching photography and I am having students with all camera brand). I found the menu layout complicated and too oriented toward color treatment instead of essential set up and even I started Photography back to 1986, I do not think that external mechanical dials are helping. Panasonic or actual Nikon camera command layout is much more efficient for photojournalism or street photography. A switch at your thumb or finger level, or a wheel will allow you to change ISO, Aperture, focus mode or compensation without getting your eyes out of the viewfinder. Old style or vintage camera look is beautiful, but not friendly to use. It grabs too much of the attention of the photographer (who has to get down the camera to change a setting) out of what matters: the subject and the composition. Also, I do not feel that Fuji are as sturdy as Panasonic bodies. www.francperet.com

      +Labba Depends on your preferences, I prefer 7-14 because of the AF, in-camera corrections and it is more flexible. If you need to shoot in low light, and don't need focal range, Laowa is good as well, although it has to be stopped down for better sharpness.

      Such a hard choice between this and the a6500. I want to retain my sigma 18-35 when I upgrade, but the metabones is so expensive if I go with the g85. On the other hand, the MC11 is cheaper, but total cost of the rig would be equivalent if I go with the a6500 because the body is more expensive. I wish canon stepped up their game in the 4K arena. If the a6500 didn鈥檛 have rolling shutter and battery issues, this might be an easier choice. Maybe I鈥檒l wait till the next round of bodies to upgrade! Sony needs to focus on usability - Panasonic seems to have the consumer in mind always. Makes me want to support them more :)

      Rangefinder or DSLR is purely matter of preference, I personally own both rangefinder and DSLR style mirrorless camera and I equally like to use both. If you want the the best ratio of size and picture quality, Sony A6x00 series is probably the best, but the lens selection is rather poor and handling is not that great either.

      And about the rear top dial on g85, there鈥檚 a small circle in the center of the dial, what鈥檚 it, is it a lock button or just aesthetic?
