GH5 High ISO in a studio setting

This image was captured last weekend at NECCC.  Panasonic Lumix GH5 using the original Lumix Vario 35 – 100 mm f/2.8 lens. at 100 mm.  Exposure triad f/2.8, 1/160 sec, ISO 3200.  The image is straight out of camera with only a minor crop for composition and no retouching.  The RAW to JPG conversion was done using Capture One Pro The camera performs exceptionally well as does the lens.  there is no lack of sharpness, the color rendition is great as is the stabilization.  There is a lot of great video produced using the GH5 but I am so pleased with the performance of this camera for stills.

The GH5 continues to excel

With the exception of the last three years we typically go to Damariscotta Maine to photograph the Osprey fishing for alewives.  The main reason for not going was the decline in activity.  However we did spend this past weekend in a lovely B&B – The Mill Pond Inn in Nobleboro.  It is a great place and has two of the finest hosts.

My main purpose was to test out the GH5 for its tracking capability and the Dual IS 2 function.  Both these images were shot with the GH5  and the Leica 100 – 400 lens, hand-held.  Exposure was set to “Manual” and the ISO was set on Auto.  The focus was set to 1 Area and reduced to its smallest size.  All images processed using Capture One Pro, version 10

I intentionally left the shutter speed slow so as to get a lot of motion in the wings and to have the water droplets streak.  I panned this shot keeping the 1 Area on the bird’s eye.

Exposure Triad: f/6.3, 1/200 sec, ISO 200. 800 mm (FF equivalent)

As we waited for more action (that never happened) a Bald Eagle flew by in the distance and finally landed on a tree on the far bank.  I knew that the bird was just to far to get a decent shot but I wanted to see what I could get irrespective.  Once again this was hand held.  I did increase the shutter speed to 1/1600 sec and the lens was out at 800 mm (FF equivalent).

This next image is the un-cropped version.

No Crop applied. Exposure Triad: f/6.3, 1/1600 sec, ISO 500. 800 mm (FF equivalent)

The next image is a crop at 1400 by 1050 pixels:
