At CES 2017 this week, Panasonic revealed their latest mirrorless camera, the Panasonic GH5.
It has been specifically designed for recording beastly video at 4K HDR.
As the company’s latest flagship model, it features a fantastic 20-megapixel sensor along with the new Venus Engine 10 processor, which is said to eliminate the rolling shutter effect that happens in CMOS cameras sometimes.
It also doesn’t feature an optical low-pass filter that is often featured in cameras, which means images from it should look sharper.
The GH5 will also support the new Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) standard for recording HDR video, with the ability to record 4K footage at up to 60 frames per second (FPS), along with 4:2:2 10-bit recording in 4K at 30fps. On top of all of this, the GH5 is twice as fast as the GH4.
The camera is also capable of recording video at 1080p at up to 180fps, along with an autofocus speed of 0.05 seconds and the ability to capture nine stills per second with its AF system that has 225 focus points.
It also has a five-axis gyro-controlled stabilisation system, all in a rugged and weather-sealed magnesium alloy body that has been built to withstand temps down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit, while being splash and dust resistant.
An upcoming firmware update in April will also add 4:2:2 10-bit recording in HD mode and kick up the bitrate to 400Mbps for 4K 30fps video, instead of the current 150Mbps.
The Panasonic GH5 will be available in late March for $2,000 for the body only.
