      Thank you! Yeah i thought about upgrading to a full frame but after having the g9 in a shop i felt absolutely in love with the grip it feels really nice in the hands and i think with some lenses with wide apperture i wont miss full frame that much and i think fr my video work the g9 will be enough as i never used the video feature of my gh4 to the fullest and ithink the stabilizer will give me a big upgrade. Ilove Panasonic cameras that they are both good at Video and Photo in one package . The g9 wen to the top of the cameras i might want to upgrade just need to save a bit of money and maybe i can upgrade :)

      Goodness, let the videographer go to the restroom so that they can hold the camera steady rather than produce that annoying swing set ride effect. Moving the camera for no purpose while shooting video is flat out a distraction, and is not good videography. Camera should follow action only, or it draws it's own attention away from the on camera action and commentator. I won't be watching any of these anymore.

      Interesting video. I am a Nikon user myself. I will be staying with Nikon full-frame equipment for the foreseeable future. But it is reassuring to know that , should I switch to M43, the image quality is there.

      I find it hard to believe that this is a "review" since all that happens is he basically reads the spec sheet + panny's marketing buzzwords and show literally 0 flaws of the camera. Plus, everything he is praising like it's the best thing since sliced bread has been in most mirrorless cameras for years now. If I am making no sense someone please show me the light.

      r s you're missing the point. I'm not dissing field tests. I'm dissing "field praises." TCSTV goes over both pros and cons of each camera and seems to be very unbiased and not afraid to call a camera bad despite their revenue as a shop relying on camera sales.

      We don't need to know the glorious cutting edge technology like autofocus, having a screen and being able to take a digital picture that this camera has. We need to know how it stacks up to the competition, and half of that is comparing which camera's compromises and limits you're willing to choose, not "omg it has autofocus, that every other digital camera has, this is the best camera in the whole world, buy it pls, oh and I'm not sponsored at all."

      not to mention you can find all the super technical reviews elsewhere.. but i haven't seen to many actual in the field reviews like this.. i think the only other one has been the TCSTV channel, and they are in a completely different scenario. personally Id rather see these kinds of reviews, take it out and show us some photos.. and not just some random snap shots of a desk or the street..

      Makes perfect sense. While these features are old hat to you, for Sal, he uses a DSLR and MF today - so that's his reference point. These features don't exist in those cameras. In addition, you are seeing the results from a real photoshoot. Our position is there is no better way to showcase any product - put it to use in the field and show the results. Telling you that he doesnt like where the red button is on the side of the camera is subjective and not something Sal has chosen to comment on. Results. You will find that is all that matters to him. Can he create a great image. To that point - I think he has answered that question.

      Nice to see Sal doing a review. Great to hear the opinion of a real working photographer. How dose the image quality stack up compared to full frame? How would it handled weddings?

      ty. ty. gonna be tough in low light for sure. gets noisy fast. I like that Panasonic is really pushing towards this market and my bet (no inside information) is that soon they will have a full frame option. i can tell you this - the tech in the camera is incredible. i have played with the sony ar73 - and i like the tech in the panasonic. they did a great job. full frame is the missing link for low-light weddings, etc. ~sal

      I liked the overview... One big disappointment: No stills at the end from the shoot!

      I just bought a used GX8 & am still learning it. I like its Leica-like form. If I really get in to M43, I may spring for a GH9 or maybe GH7 as a "special unit" camera. I almost always buy used.

      For looks, which is a factor, though, I am so itching to get a Graphite edition Fuji XPRO-2. It would probably sit on display, though & I'm not that rich. So, maybe a used Leica M4-P will sit on the shelf... next to the black 35mm Pentax Spotmatic I used to swear by.

      I love my G7 and walk around with the FZ300 whenever I go out. I shoot a LOT of photos in all sorts of lighting conditions, and I really don't like using a flash when the light or environment is a little dark. If the video is equal to the G7 in features, I'll get the camera.

      on a personal level - the team uses the gh5 for all video. we didnt think this was really a contender against the gh5 - so we didnt really test the video features of this camera. **noted for future test for sure!

      thanks for doing this video. can we please have some image samples taken at high iso's such as 12800? i really like the idea of this camera g9 but i currently own a gh5, which does not perform well at iso's over 3200 and this is only where i miss the full frame cameras i owned in past( in better noise performance).

      You did a great job with that G9. As you say, it is how a camera performs in real world situations. I have been using Panasonic/Olympus MFT cameras/lenses for the last 3 years and have got some decent images from my G80/85. However, lately I have become more frustrated with it as I like to photograph wildlife, and basically it is letting me down due to the contrast detection AF. I was trying to photograph a bird on a branch with the sun on my back and the camera simply would not lock onto the bird or branch, no matter the size of focus point or area or mode, it just kept hunting (Panasonic 100-300mm lens mk1). I even switched to manual focus but the focus ring is stiff (a known thing on that lens) so it just jerked past the point of focus, I was losing the will to live! Yet when I use my Nikon D600 with a Sigma 150-600mm c lens, it simply snaps into focus first time without any drama (and the D600 is not the known fastest AF for action). All I know is, I am missing lots of images with the Panasonic, but nailing more shots faster & more accurately with my DSLR.

      glad you enjoyed it. thats the way sal likes to test a product - using it on shoots when he cans. hmm.. as for the focus... i was not on this shoot with sal, but in talking to the team, it was dark during the last scene and sal was using the 1.2 42.5 (85mm equivalent) and he said he was not having issues with hunting... so perhaps they have improved that in this release? definitely worth getting your hands on the camera and testing it.
