Here's a quick sample shot with the new Panasonic GH5 Camera using 48fps in VFR (variable frame rate) shot with the CAME-TV Prophet Gimbal and using the PVGear ND Filter Adapter with the Panasonic 7-14mm Lens. The ND Filter allows me to keep my shutter speed in control on bright days. I shot this using the 'Natural' profile in the GH5 at 4K 8bit. I later adjusted the color and exposure using just the basic FCPX Color Board.

Considering the low bitrate of internal 4K 8bit recording, I think the samples clip above held up really well pushing around the exposure and color. I can only imagine how much better the quality will be when the new Firmware with high bitrate 10bit drops this summer. The colors of the GH5 is much different than the GH4 camera, which always had a shift to orange/reds. It feels closer to Canon color science. The dynamic range seems to have improved and it's far better in low light and cleaner at high iso when compared to the previous GH4 camera, but still not as good as sony in low light conditions.
