“Panasonic is proud to introduce the new LUMIX GH5 that features world’s first* 4K 60p / 50p ultra high-definition, smooth, video recording fwithout a time limit and 4:2:2 10-bit** 4K 30p / 25p internal video recording as well as outputting.
The new 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor without low-pass filter combines with the new Venus Engine to achieve highest-ever picture quality and 5-axis Dual I.S. 2*** boasts even more effective suppression against blurring.
The newly added 6K PHOTO**** makes it possible to capture unmissable moments at 30 fps by extracting the frame with the best timing out of the 6K burst file (in 4:3 or 3:2 aspect) to save as an approx. 18-megapixel equivalent high-resolution photo. 4K PHOTO is also upgraded enabling 60-fps high-speed capture in approx. 8-megapixel equivalent resolution.
The LUMIX GH5 includes Bluetooth 4.2 (called BLE: Bluetooth Low Energy) and Wi-Fi® 5GHz***** (IEEE802.11ac) / 2.4GHz (IEEE 802.11b/g/n) connectivity. It is composed of a magnesium alloy full die-cast front / rear frame and is not only splashproof and dustproof but also freezeproof down to -10 degrees. A double SD Memory Card slot is equipped.
Moreover, functional upgrades such as Full-HD 4:2:2 10-bit video recording capability (in Aprill 2017), 400-Mbps 4:2:2 10-bit All-Intra video recording in 4K 30p/25p/24p and 200-Mbps All-Intra Full-HD (in the second half of 2017) are scheduled.
