As part of an update to our Buying Guides, we’ve crowned a new winner in the video category: the Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S. Its excellent video quality and extensive range of support features see it take top honors from its sister model, the DC-GH5, which we recognize as a better fit for run-and-gun style shooting.
The GH5S’s sensor allows it to continue shooting excellent quality footage in a wider range of lighting conditions than the regular GH5, and the provision of 10-bit capture ensures its footage is tremendously gradable, even in high dynamic range conditions.
Meanwhile, the higher bitrate capture and in-body stabilization of the Fujifilm X-H1 see it displace the X-T2 in our ‘also consider’ list for video cameras, and the a7 III’s lower price and full-width, oversampled 4K capture see it take the a7R III’s place, pending full review.
We’ve also added the Canon EOS T7 and EOS M50, and the Panasonic ZS200/TZ200 to the appropriate Buying Guides. This way, anyone shopping for a camera is aware of these models, while we continue to work on their full reviews. Each will be considered for recommendation as soon as our testing is complete.
