No, the Panasonic LUMIX GH5S cannot be charged by charging the battery while it’s still in the camera. You’ll need to still remove the battery and place it in the compatible battery charger for charging.
No, this camera doesn’t have image stabilisation technology built into the camera body. However you can still make the most of IS technology by working with lenses that feature IS technology. If you’re filming on a tripod, this may not even be a factor you need to consider.
Unlike the GH5, the Panasonic LUMIX GH5S comes with V-Log already installed as a standard feature of the camera, so you can use this straight out of the box.
Many cameras focused on videography offer timecode, but the Panasonic GH5S takes it an extra step by being able to output this also so you can synchronise with other GH5S bodies or other cameras. It works through the flash sync socket via a BNC conversion cable that comes included with the camera. It’s makes life so much easier when shooting with multiple cameras and it comes time to edit all the footage.
The DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology featured in the Panasonic GH5S allows you to capture fast-moving action by calculating the distance to the subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels, achieving ultra-high speed AF and 8 frames per second burst shooting with AFC.
It’s easy to get the compatible accessories for the GH5S, such as the Panasonic DMW-BLF19 Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (which has no memory effect so you can recharge at any time), the DMW-BLF19 Battery Charger and DMW-BGGH5 Battery Grip. You’ll also discover many compatible items such as a Body Cap, Hot Shoe Cover, Eye Cup, Flash Synchro Socket Cap, Cover for the Battery Grip Connector, USB Connection Cable, Shoulder Strap, Cable Holder, and BNC Converter Cable.
