Can you believe this major fault found only by accident by a colleague of mine during a live theatre show.
He was filming the show as a 3rd camera and accidentally pressed the green playback button when the GH5 stopped recording and went into playback mode.
This has be be one of the worst mistakes I have found with the GH5 so far and Panasonic need to urgently address this with a firmware update.
As it was a 3rd camera there will be no consequences to his recording but had it been a single camera it would have been a disaster.
The same happens with the GH5S as well !!!
It has been pointed out to me this problem has existed over a few incarnations of the GH line from the 3,4 and now 5. This is no excuse for sloppy engineering, if Panasonic want the GH5 to be taken seriously within the video world then a simple menu addition needs to be added allowing users to deactivate the playback function during recording.
