Panasonic GH5 Starts Shipping:
Slow Motion quality up to 120fps is excellent and comparable to 30 and 60fps footage at full HD 1080p; It decreases slightly at 150fps and a little more at 180fps showing some aliasing and softness. The performance is still acceptable at the maximum frame rate and has already been used in music videos and other productions with success.
The GH5 Is available from Amazon.com and Adorama Below:
