The FilmConvert GH5S camera profile is out now. It can help with color grading the footage from Panasonic’s new mirrorless camera as well as matching the footage with other cameras.
Panasonic GH5S (check out our hands-on here) is the new “low light brother” of the popular Panasonic GH5 (here’s our low-light shoot-out video between the two). It does not have In-body image stabilization (IBIS), but it solves one of the weak spots of the GH5: low light sensitivity. It has Dual ISO and much bigger pixels as the image sensor resolution dropped roughly 2x. It is a bit more expensive than the GH5, but it already has the VLog-L logarithmic gamma curve color profile included with the price.
FilmConvert just released the camera profile for the Panasonic GH5S, and is designed to help with color grading all types of picture profiles with the Panasonic GH5S including the VLog-L. The profile is now ready to be downloaded for free from their website.
FilmConvert camera profiles are dedicated data packs that increase the color accuracy for your footage. The data packs work in both the FilmConvert plugins and the standalone grading software. They cannot be loaded directly into the camera, although the software allows export of LUTs with the color settings to use in-camera. Please note that the camera packs need the latest version of FilmConvert plugin for full compatibility.
FilmConvert can either be used as a stand-alone application or as a plugin which is supported by most NLEs. It is designed to help with and speed up the color grading process, and is mainly useful for creatives who don’t have either the skills or time to grade their footage “from scratch”.
