For sure you can find better photo cameras with a large full-frame sensor and of course there are certainly professional video cameras with even more features. But WOW, the Lumix GH5 is such a versatile camera and delivers an amazing image quality and a great price/quality ratio!
Photos, videos and everything in between -like 6K photo, time lapse, post focus and focus stacking- it all looks very impressive. Even in poor lighting conditions, this Micro Four Thirds camera has surprised us. We highly recommend it!
