Hi there! Some of you know me as PhotoJoseph; photographer, LUMIX Luminary, author and the host of the week-daily LIVE PhotoJoseph’s Photo Moments YouTube show, and of course a huge fan of the LUMIX GH5. Some of you know me as the host of this site, PhotoApps.Expert. Either way, you know me as someone who loves photography, and loves to teach — and I've decided to produce an in-depth video training course on the Panasonic LUMIX GH5 camera.

As a LUMIX Luminary, I've had my hands on it longer than most, and understand the intricacies of the camera very well. It's a incredible machine, designed for video and still shooters alike, and if you want to get the most from it, you'll want to watch this course!

Video Training Overview

This course will endeavor to appeal to a broad range of users, from the beginner to the serious enthusiast. We will cover things as basic as the PASM dial to as advanced as an introduction to V-Log. If you're a super pro user shooting feature films with a dozen GH4 and GH5 bodies, then perhaps this isn't for you. But it is for everyone else!

Sample Videos

These two videos are complete lessons from the course, provided as samples so you can see exactly what the course content looks like!



This course is available for pre-order at a significant discount. The final course price will be $99, however the pre-order price is just $59, and another 20% off of that for paid members of this site! (click here to learn about membership) And you'll get early access to content! As a video is completed, it'll be added to the download list and you'll be a able to grab it immediately. The entire course is slated for completion by June 15 (that could change but not by much)… June 30 seems more likely now … OK for real this time; by July 31! (so this is WAY more work than anticipated). For those opting to wait for it on, expect that it'll take a few weeks from delivery to them before the video is run through Q.A. and submitted for members to stream.

Looking forward to the rest of the course if its all as good as this. Thank you PhotoJoseph! 

I’ve been using my GH5 heavily and getting familiar, but this is my first Panasonic camera. This video tutorial helped me discover even more tips and tricks that just aren’t clear when you stumble along the manual, scattered online tutorials. Finishing these tutorials speed up the learning curve and help you understand better just how to get the most out of your GH5. Thanks, Joseph!

This course is just awesome. If you want to know what GH5 is all about and every nitty gritty details about the GH5 camera, it is all here . If anybody is buying the GH5 Camera this is the video training and manual the GH5 users deserve. Just amazing work by PhotoJoseph. Best 59 bucks ever spent.
