Now that version 2.3 of the GH5 firmware is out, which addressed autofocus performance at 180d shutter angle, it’s time to test the performance against the 179d synchro scan trick for verision 2.2. Includes AFC Face Detection test.
Comparing the continuous autofocus performance of the similarly priced Sony a7 III vs the Panasonic Lumix GH5. Plus comparison of video features like image quality, AF responsiveness, colour, and image stabilization.
Continuous autofocus on the GH5 is now 100% usable. Follow these settings to improve AF tracking & reduce pulsing while increasing autofocus speed & responsiveness. Inspired by YodaYeo’s Shutter Angle fix and the 179 degree syncrho scan workaround.
