Unrivalled Video & Photo Hybrid
The new LUMIX DC-GH5 is the world’s first* mirrorless camera to record 4K 10-bit 4:2:2 25/30p videos to SD Card, record 4K video at 50/60p; and has evolved its original 4K Photo to the stunning 6K Photo to capture unmissable moments in incredible detail.
World 1st* 4K 4:2:2 10-bit Internal Recording
The LUMIX GH5 brings game changing 4K 10-bit 4:2:2 25/30p video recording to the SD Card whilst simultaneously feeding the live signal through a full-size HDMI port connected to an external monitor or recorder. The 4:2:2 10-bit recording enables faithful colour and grading fidelity with over a billion colours and four times the tonality of 8-bit. The result is cinematic, subtle gradation and far more colour information. For the serious film maker, this provides significantly more editing flexibility in post-production. A 400Mbps (ALL-Intra) high bitrate recording mode will be available with a firmware update later in 2017.
World 1st* 4K 50/60p Smooth Quality Video
The LUMIX GH5 takes professional shooting performance to another level with high-precision, silky smooth 4K 50/60p (4K: 3840 x 2160 / MOV or MP4) video recording capability. Faster frame rates mean excellent motion compensation plus you can slow down footage inside your video editing timeline without losing detail. For those who require faster frame rates, the GH5 can record 1080p Full HD video at an incredible 180 frames per second.
The LUMIX GH5 can capture high quality stills and video while utilising the full sensor area, even when shooting in 4K 50/60p and 6K Photo modes. It captures maximum detail while maintaining the lens’ focal length and angle of view. There's also no recording duration limit so you can go beyond 30 minutes in all record settings.
20.3MP Pixel-Perfect Shooter
The LUMIX GH5 packs a real punch with its high performance Digital Live MOS sensor sporting a whopping 20.3 megapixels to achieve the ultimate picture quality in the history of LUMIX G digital cameras. Together with the removal of the low-pass filter from the sensor, you can confidently capture the sharpest ever imagery with high dynamic range and artefact free. The LUMIX GH5 is a camera of beauty crafted by Panasonic engineering.
Venus Engine Beauty
The marriage of an advanced Digital Live MOS sensor with the beautiful new Venus Engine 10 reproduces extraordinary colour detail and natural texture expression. Multipixel Luminance Generation and Intelligent Detail Processing render intense brightness and contrast. The Three-Dimensional Colour Control zings with rich colours from dark to bright shades and high-precision Multi Process NR makes your images pop even at high ISO sensitivity settings. Video users will be impressed with the improved performance in perceptual dynamic range at high ISO sensitivity settings.
Eliminate Blur at Any Setting
It’s difficult to handhold a camera at the best of times but don't fret, with the 5-axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabiliser) 2* intelligent compensation comes to your aid. This is the equivalent to 5 doublings of exposure duration meaning you can use a 5-stop slower shutter speed up to tele-photo.
The LUMIX GH5 eliminates shake in both body and lens from wide-angle to tele-end**. It also works in both photo and video recording, including 4K video.
The astonishing power of the 5-axis Body I.S. corrects shake for all lenses, including classic lenses not equipped with O.I.S.
Professional Versatility All Around The World
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/Blu-Ray 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* (ALL-Intra) 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 & 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 ultra-high-speed 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.
Never Miss A Shot with 6K/4K Burst
Shoot with unlimited burst, then choose and extract the exact frames you want to keep. The new 6K PHOTO* mode at 30fps allows you to capture the perfect moments at a stunning approx.18-megapixel high-resolution. The Ultra-high-speed 4K PHOTO mode at 60fps freezes even faster motion which is simply not possible in conventional cameras. The LUMIX GH5 truly does make moments unmissable.
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.
High Performance Shutter Unit
The shutter unit is durable for approx. 200,000 times release*. Not only does it offer the highest shutter speed at max. 1/8000 to capture fast-moving 'spur-of-the-moment' shots but when used with fast aperture lenses - even outdoors - it gives impressive de-focus.
Optimum Control Components Layout
The LUMIX GH5 offers you more intuitive control with the addition of a joystick over the conventional front /rear dials operation. A dedicated button allows direct reach to exposure compensation, white balance adjustment or ISO setting and a maximum of 5 settings can be assigned to the Fn buttons. All these components are designed to be operated easily and without taking your eyes away from the viewfinder.
Never Miss A Recording - Dual UHS-II SD Card Slots*
LUMIX GH5 is equipped with dual UHS-II SD card slots for larger capacity recording and efficient file arrangement. The dual SD card slots allow you to record in relay, backup, and simultaneous modes. Relay allows you to swap a full card out for an empty card so you can record virtually endlessly. The backup mode allows you to record continuously on one card, while you start and stop recording on the other card. Simultaneous record duplicates your recording on both cards.
3,680k-dot, Large OLED LVF
A super high-resolution 3,680k-dot 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.
