  1. So here is my personal opinion:
    a6500 Cine4 and GH5 Cinelike D are quite similar. I still prefer Cine4, but that might be because I shoot in Cine4 since over a year so I am used to working with it much more. I don't like Cinelike V, because the shadows are too dark. In terms of image quality under good light a6500 and GH5 are very similar. Barely a difference noticeable. Because of the bigger sensor of the a6500 it is easier to get a shallow depth of field and it's a lot better under low light.

  2. I am so mad I just picked up the GH4 instead of the Sony A6500. The main reason I did that is because GH4 has a flip screen, but I am still mad !

  3. You should publish all your camera settings for both cameras, as both camera profiles and settings can make a huge difference in the finished image. Your GH5 park bench footage looks like it was shot with a camera profile with too much contrast, so you are losing highlight detail in all of these shots.

    Also, most of your GH5 footage looks like you had the color saturation set too high. ( The GH4 and GH5 default camera settings are crap, so every profile needs to be adjusted to get the best results )

    You also might want to take a look at Paul Leeming's "Leeming LUT ONE" LUTs for Cine-D and V-Log L profiles for the GH5, as they help to get optimum color and contrast from these two profiles.

    Also the free Logarist color system ( ) is a fantastic set of LUTs to obtain accurate color from Cine-D and V-Log L camera profiles.
