The new LUMIX DC-GH5 is the world’s first mirrorless camera to record 4K 10-bit 4:2:2 videos to SD Card, record 4K video at 50/60p and has evolved its original 4K phooto to the stunning 6K Photo to capture unmissable moments in incredible detail. The GH5 is a an upgraded and feature packed cameras that will suit both photo and video users alike boasting a robust 20.3 MP Digital Live MOS Sensor and a brand new processor. Complete with a Micro 4/3 Lens mount, the GH5 continues Panasonic’s extreme flexibility when deciding on lensing to match this powerful camera system.


• 4K 4:2:2 10-bit Internal Recording

The LUMIX GH5 brings game changing 4K 10­bit 4:2:2 25/30p video recording to the SD Card whilst simultaneously feeding the live signal through a full­size HDMI port connected to an external monitor or recorder. The 4:2:2 10­bit recording enables faithful colour and grading fidelity with over a billion colours and four times the tonality of 8­bit. The result is cinematic, subtle gradation and far more colour information. For the serious film maker, this provides significantly more editing flexibility in post­production. A 400Mbps (ALL­Intra) high bitrate recording mode will be available with a firmware update later in 2017.

• Outstanding Professional Versatility

A plethora of video formats and bit rates prepare the LUMIX GH5 for use in a wide range of professional applications such as web, TV, DVD/Blu­Ray and digital cinema production. You can select from four recording formats such as AVCHD and MP4 for playback ease, or MP4 (LPCM) and MOV for professional editing ease. Bit rates can be extended to a maximum of 400 Mbps* (ALL­Intra) or 150 Mbps (Long GOP (IPB Compression)), with no recording duration limit. The LUMIX GH5 is worldwide compatible as the system frequency can be selected from 59.94 Hz (NTSC), 50.00 Hz (PAL), or 24.00 Hz (CINEMA).

• Ultra Fast Motion Detection and Focus

Panasonic’s innovative DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology is constantly evolving and it just got even better. DFD allows the LUMIX GH5 to calculate focal lens movement by comparing depth of field values of two images at incredibly high speed. By combining the AF drive with a maximum read speed of 480 fps, the LUMIX GH5 can achieve ultra­high­speed Auto Focus in up to 0.05 seconds* and 9 fps burst shooting with AFC (** 12 fps burst shooting with AFS). A newly adopted motion detector accurately tracks fast moving subjects, and enables smooth 4K PHOTO/VIDEO & 6K PHOTO recording.

• Splash/Dust/Freezeproof Rugged Design

The LUMIX GH5 is built like a tank to withstand even heavy use out in the field. It is freezeproof down to ­10­ degrees in addition to splash / dustproof construction thanks to weather sealing on every joint, dial, and button. A magnesium alloy full diecast armour frame makes the body lightweight yet durable while bringing ruggedness to the compact size. This camera can go everywhere you can.

• 3,680k-dot, Large OLED LVF

A super high­resolution 3,680k­dot OLED LVF (Live View Finder) brings gorgeous visibility and makes for perfect framing even under direct sunlight. A high 0.76x magnification (35mm camera equivalent) makes it easy to see image detail, your settings and icons, and, the long eye point distance of 21mm is excellent for people who wear spectacles. Best of all, the OLED LVF ensures your pictures match up to exactly how you intended them.
