I've used the GH5 on 10 bit 4:2:2 mode quite a bit and the microblocking is insane even on 1080p. I have no idea how anyone uses these cameras to create a decent image. Coming off a Blackmagic Pocket cinema camera which has zero microblocking ever, the GH5 seems like a toy codec wise. Everyone I know who gets a decent image from one, is using an external recorder.
Is this mitigated with the GH5s? So if an external recorder is used, there is no problem or less of one? Considering this camera for micro budget doc. Might have to look elsewhere.
