Panasonic teased us for months after first announcing the GH5 at Photokina 2016. Out of the few details they released within the announcement, they would only confirm that this camera would shoot 10-bit 4:2:2 internally in both 24 and 30 frames per second. That’s all they said! Come on Panasonic, we want more! We were ripe with anticipation, salivating for the rest of the details. Finally at CES 2017, Panasonic gave us all of the details for the GH5. We were so blown-away by the specs that we gave it our Best Camera of CES 2017 award.
GoPro released Karma with the HERO5 Black and Session back in August of 2016, only to have DJI anounce Mavic Pro 30 minutes later. Plus, right after that, there was a problem with the battery causing it to possibly vibrate loose and fall out during flight. Needless to say, after that, GoPro recalled every Karma. Fast forward to February of 2017 and we have our hands on the newly re-released Karma.

The Canon 5D Mark IV is a solid follow-up to the much lauded 5D Mark III. Though the new camera is capable of 4K video recording, the 1.74x crop factor is a bit of a disappointment. Overall though, the 5D Mark IV produced a great-looking image.
