Panasonic Lumix GH5 10-bit 4:2:2 Footage to Download and Practice Grading

Still needing more Panasonic Lumix GH5 exposure, as it were? One keenly anticipated aspect of the GH5 is its ability to record V-Log 10-bit 4:2:2 footage internally instead of only via an external monitor/recorder. Emmanuel Pampuri is kindly sharing some footage that can be downloaded in order to practice grading it with NLEs’ colour grading functionality or in colour grading software like BlackMagic’s DaVinci Resolve. 

The current line-up of Veydra Mini Prime cinema lenses, from 12mm at left through 16mm, 19mm, 25mm, 35mm, 50mm to 85mm. Veydra sells these lenses in kits or individually. A focally well-spaced set of matched Veydra primes would be a real asset and a more practical alternative than trying to assemble a set of non-matched non-cinema stills primes in various brands.

Mr Pampuri shot his footage with Veydra mini cinema prime lenses, “built for mirrorless cameras with Micro4/3 and S35 sensors” and with “multiple mounting options including Micro 4/3, Sony E-Mount, and C-Mount”.

Although I have yet to see Veydra lenses in the flesh, as it were, they sound like an excellent solution for making feature films and documentaries with Super 16 cameras like the GH5 and its M43 stablemates and competitors.

At time of writing, Mr Pampuri had mistakenly uploaded the footage as 8-bit 4:2:o but will be replacing that with 10-bit 4:2:2 footage soon.
