Thanks MattyMustng! Glad to know there are still people out there like you who actually read through a thread or analyze comments in detail before thinking they have enough info to give themselves the license to bash something.
As you reiterated: what attracted me to the video I posted above was the fact that it departs with many of the typical uses of the GH5 ("contrasty" look, over-saturated colors, etc.), to create the look that is commonly used in hotel and hospitality commercials and very popular in the commercial video production industry overall: increased dynamic range, beautiful rolloff, and a generally soft and "creamy" image, without looking vintage.
Maybe after my comment, your reiteration, and now this comment, people will finally get the point.
Hey there. The video was not shot in Cinelike D, like you're suggesting. This was just confirmed to me by a team member from the production company that replied to an email I sent them with a few questions like the ones I have on here. They indicated it was shot in V-log L 4:2:2 1080p/60 and V-log L 4:2:2 4K/24.
I saw the sample you put in your link. It's definitely nice and cinematic, but it looks like it was shot on a GH5 or similar camera, but with a few cinematic tweaks. The use of a grain filter and a very LUT-like look are also typical of what people use in that price range/work environment. Again, definitely nice stuff, but in my opinion not as far from the usual work with a GH5 as the video I posted above. "Usual" as in rich in contrast, somewhat limited in dynamic range, and loaded with color grading choices used by many videographers.
What attracted me to the video I posted above, instead, was the fact that it departs with many of those elements to create a look that is commonly used in hotel and hospitality commercials; a look which is very popular in the commercial video production industry. Basically, increased dynamic range (usually because a higher end camera is used), beautiful rolloff, and a generally soft and "creamy" image, without looking vintage.
As far as I know, nobody I've seen uses the GH5 like that, and pulls it off. It's nice to know for the many lovers of that look in the commercial video production industry, like me, that it can be done. It attracts me to the camera. It increases the camera's appeal to more people, by showcasing another aspect of its versatility.
Thanks Matthias! Especially your point about lighting the indoor scenes to roughly match the window light. Hadn't even thought about that. Seems like they used the V-log profile on the GH5 to the max - I've never seen that camera so soft and "analog" looking.
