ALL-Intra Video Recording
4:2:2, 10-bit ALL-Intra has been added to the 4K/FHD video recording mode. Available in 4K and C4K 24p/25p at a healthy 400Mbps, this should satisfy the needs of most color and post work. An ALL-Intra bit rate of 200Mbps is available in FHD.
The GH5 records video with a designated gamma curve compatible with ITU-R BT.2100, and you can now choose Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG).
6K Anamorphic Mode
“High Resolution Anamorphic Mode” records video with a 4:3 aspect ratio suitable for 1.33x and 2x anamorphic lenses. The “6K” pixel size for this mode is 4992×3744. Before you get too excited, this mode records Long GOP HEVC at 200Mbps only. However, ALL-Intra at 400Mbps is available in 4K Anamorphic (3328×2496).
Anamorphic Desqueeze lets you view a corrected image in Cinescope size while recording with 2.0x and 1.33x Anamorphic lenses.
Video guide lines offer a variety of aspects, such as 2.39:1, 2.35:1, 16:9, and 1:1 while recording video. These can be used in all video recording modes.
