Detailed comparison of the Panasonic GH5s vs Sony A7S II. You can find high ISO comparison test with key specifications in this post.
The Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5s and the Sony Alpha 7S II are two high-end video centric cameras that were announced, respectively, in January 2018 and September 2015.
The Panasonic GH5s will be available from February for $2499 body-only.
Coming back to sensor resolution, Both the GH5s and the A7S II are mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras that are based on a Four Thirds (GH5s) and a full frame sensor. The Panasonic has a resolution of 9.9 megapixel, whereas the Sony provides 12 MP.
The Panasonic GH5s features a 10.1MP Four Thirds sensor and the Sony A7S II offers a 12MP full frame sensor. The sensor in the GH5s has a native 4:3 aspect ratio, while the one in the A7S II offers a 3:2 aspect. Multi-aspect sensor design on the GH5s allows larger sensor area and preservation of angle-of-view.
Image Noise between the Panasonic GH5s vs Sony A7S II camera
ISO 12800 Panasonic GH 5S is showing with more saturated colours compared to the Sony A7 S II camera but the noise levels minimal and images look somehow usable at this point
ISO 25600 is a point when you will notice the raise of noise level in the sample image of the Panasonic GH5s camera. But Sony A7S II sensor maintains the image quality without showing significant noise.
Look for shadow behind the bottles, the Panasonic GH5S s showing un-acceptable level of noise at ISO 51200.
I have nothing to say. At this point both images are unusable, but GH5s is showing more noise compared to Sony A7S II camera.
And finally the 204800. Why camera company unlocks such a noisy ISO levels ? too get good marks in specification sheet or for specification comparison engines ?
Imaging Resource comparison review of the new GH5s vs A7sII:
At both 12,800 and 25,600, the GH5S looks slightly better than the A7S II at the same ISOs, which is both unexpected and subjectively highly impressive for a camera featuring a sensor that is a fraction the size of the other.
A sensor significantly smaller than the full-frame A7S II is beating that camera in low-light performance. I never thought I would see the day. With these test results, it’s hard to argue that the GH5S is not the new king of low light.
