Is the Panasonic GH5s worthy of all the hype? Today we figure out how high you can actually take your ISO without losing color information and detail.
80 ISO is the cleanest setting on the camera. Not great for color correction in post, but if you shoot with non LOG photo styles and won’t tweak color much before delivery, this setting is crazy clean.
400 ISO and 2500 are best for post production color work. 2500 seems a little cleaning when shooting non LOG and 400 is cleaning when shooting LOG. These two settings are also the two native ISO levels. This means you will get the most dynamic range when using them.
6400 ISO is the last stop for clean color. Any higher than 6400 and you’ll begin to see minor color shifting in the highlights and midtowns.
12800 ISO is the highest I would won’t to go on this camera. If you go any higher you will begin to see color, detail and noise worsen significantly. After this point you will also begin to see red/magenta colors show up in the shadows and colors that should naturally be red will become desaturated.
