First let me explain I have never owned a DSLR before, nor even a camcorder. After finding Caleb’s YouTube channel I got the crazy idea I could start making training videos for work. Bought a GH5, a few other odds and ends and this course. Turns out I needed a beginners book to cover the things someone who has used more than a cell phone camera before already knows. This course will not bring you zero to hero in theory or post, but makes going between a book that covers only generic camera settings and methods and applying them to the GH5 very easy. It would have been far more difficult to figure everything out without this course, I recommend it greatly.

I am considering the purchase of a GH5s camera. To better understand what that camera is like, I enrolled in the GH5/GH5s course. The level of detail of this course is amazing. Since I have never worked with log before, I found that section especially helpful. I also loved the explanation of how you use vector scopes to calibrate your camera. My takeaway is that the GH5 and GH5s are powerful machines. So much so that if you explore their features on your own it may take you a long time to learn them all. This course offers great guidance.

As a returning customer and fan of the GH4 guide, I knew this was going to be a must watch. Caleb really exceeds my expectations this time around, with a guide that really speaks to the depth of this camera in a way that both novice and professionals shooters can appreciate. I now feel like I understand my GH5 even more so than cannon cameras I've had for years. I can only hope Caleb makes an extended version for the GH5s! PLEASE CALEB! GH5s!!! TAKE MY MONEY!

Excellent guide to the Panasonic GH5(s), very well explained, easy to understand, even for non native English speakers. A lot of information about accessories like external recording, lenses or adaptators (speedbosters or others), how to expose correctly, especially with the V-log profile, how to use in an efficient way the manual and auto focus, etc... The quality of the video, and the voice recording is excellent. Really worth the price !

Hi Overall its a very good introduction to the functions and use of the cameras. I definettly feel more confident using my equipment. However I was disappointed that their was no beginners/starter information about processing files out of camera to use in editing software and a few starting points for using codecs. For the price of the guide you could of included this info. Not much good being able to capture and not process?? When you compare the cost to other online guides and education such as Karl Taylor's eduction website or Phlearn for example this guide is pricey in comparison and left me feeling a bit ripped off and not being given all the information i needed to hit the ground running. Why are you not giving full access to all the guides for example?? Regards, Garrett
