Panasonic has been committed to the development of innovative digital cameras under the theme “Create a New Photo Culture in the Digital Era.” The company introduced the world’s first Digital Single Lens Mirrorless camera, the LUMIX DMC-G1 in 2008*4 and the subsequent DMC-GH1 achieved the world’s first Full HD video recording in 2009*5.

Always looking to the future, in 2014 Panasonic introduced the DMC-GH4, which realized 4K 30p/25p video recording for the first time in the industry*6. At the same time, Panasonic proposed a new and unique method of photography called ‘4K PHOTO’ which allows users to capture fleeting photographic moments that even the eyes cannot catch, by using super-fast 4K resolution video frames at 30 fps that can be saved as high-quality photos. As a result, the DMC-GH4 is highly acclaimed for its exceptional hybrid performance in both photography and videography by a wide range of professional users worldwide – not only photographers but also cinematographers in the film production field, as well as emerging photo/video-hybrid creators.

By advancing Panasonic technologies, such as digital signal processing and heat dissipation, and packing them into the compact, lightweight body of a Digital Single Lens Mirrorless camera, the new LUMIX DMC-GH5 will enable 4K 60p/50p and 4:2:2 10-bit 4K video recording*3, which has never before been achieved*1. With this unprecedented video recording performance, Panasonic aims to further capitalize on the strength that it has achieved in the film production industry.

In the LUMIX DMC-GH5, the conventional ‘4K PHOTO’ function is dramatically advanced to form ‘6K PHOTO’*2 which allows the user to cut a still image out of ultra-high-quality approximately 18-megapixel video with approximately 9 times the pixel count than Full-HD. Taking advantage of its high-speed, long-time burst shooting capability, spur-of-the-moment shots can be saved in beautiful photos with higher resolution that complies with larger-sized printing by substantially increasing the resolution from approximately 8-megapixel (4K PHOTO) to approximately 18-megapixel (6K PHOTO*2). Furthermore, approximately 8- megapixel 4K Photo images can be captured at a super-fast 60 fps.

The LUMIX DMC-GH5 will be displayed at Photokina 2016, held in Koelnmesse, Germany, from September 20-25, 2016, together with the new LEICA DG VARIO-ELMARIT F2.8-4.0 Lens Series. Achieving both high optical performance and a compact size, the LEICA DG VARIO-ELMARIT F2.8-4.0 Lens Series includes a new 12-60mm standard zoom lens, 8-18mm wide zoom lens and 50- 200mm telephoto zoom lens that will be showcased as a reference exhibit at the Panasonic booth.
