Overview

Overview

The Panasonic LUMIX GH5 4K Mirrorless ILC Camera is a 20.3 Megapixel mirrorless camera featuring 4:2:2 10-bit internal 4K/60p video recording. In addition to its impressive video capture capability, the conventional "4K PHOTO" function is dramatically upgraded to a "6K PHOTO" function, which cuts a still image out of ultra-high quality (~18 Megapixel, 6000 x 3000 lines) 4:3 or 3:2 video footage with approximately 9x the pixel count of Full HD.

Taking advantage of its high-speed, long-duration burst shooting capability, spur-of-the-moment shots can be saved in beautiful photos with higher resolution (that complies with larger-sized printing) by substantially increasing the resolution from ~8 Megapixel (4K PHOTO) to ~18 Megapixel (6K PHOTO). Furthermore, ~8 Megapixel 4K images can be captured at a super fast 60 fps.

Features:

  • Professional photo and 4K video performance in a durable magnesium alloy body
  • 20.3MP Four Thirds sensor with no low pass filter
  • 4K Video: Internal recording at 4K60/50p (4:2:0 8bit) & 4K30/25p/24p (4:2:2 10bit)
  • Variable Video Frame Rates 4K: Max. 60fps & FHD: Max. 180fps
  • 5-Axis Photo/Video Dual I.S. 2.0 up to 5 stops with compatible LUMIX MFT lenses
  • In-body stabilization support for classic non-O.I.S lenses
  • Fast and accurate focusing utilizing LUMIX 480 fps DFD focusing system and Venus Engine 10
  • Full size (Type A) HDMI terminal with cable lock included & twin SD Card slots (UHS-II U3 Compatible)
  • 3.5mm mic & headphone terminals - optional DMW-XLR1 microphone adaptor
  • Eye viewfinder 3680k-dot OLED, 21mm, 0.76x
  • V-LogL recording with (Optional) DMW-SFU1 paid upgrade

 

20.3 Megapixel Sensor

The LUMIX GH5 packs a real punch with its high performance 20.3MP Digital Live MOS sensor. Together with the removal of the low-pass filter from the sensor, you can confidently capture sharp images with a high dynamic range, artifact free.

Venus Engine Processor

The marriage of an advanced Digital Live MOS sensor with the beautiful new Venus Engine 10 produces extraordinary color detail and natural texture expression. Multipixel Luminance Generation and Intelligent Detail Processing render intense brightness and contrast.

4K 60p/50p Smooth Quality Video

The LUMIX GH5 records silky smooth 4K 60p/50p (QFHD 4K: 3840 x 2160 / MOV or MP4) video. Faster frame rates mean excellent motion compensation, and you can slow down footage inside your video editing timeline without losing detail. You also achieve perfect panning control and a suppression of the rolling shutter effect as seen in lesser frame rates.

High-resolution images and perfect focal length can also be achieved as the LUMIX GH5 features pixel for pixel, no sensor cropping recording. There's also no recording duration limit so you can go beyond 30 minutes in all record settings.

4:2:2 10-bit Internal Recording

The LUMIX GH5 features internal 4:2:2 10-bit 4K video recording. 10-bit renders all the subtleties of graduated skies and sunsets without the banding so prone to 8-bit, and you can record 4:2:2 10-bit to an SD card while simultaneously feeding the live signal through a full-size HDMI port connected to an external monitor or recorder. 4:2:2 10-bit recording enables faithful color and grading fidelity with over a billion colors and four times the tonality of 8-bit. High-precision Multi Process Noise Reduction makes your images pop even at high ISO sensitivity settings.

VFR (Variable Frame Rate)

Variable Frame Rate enables recording of footage with dramatic slow motion or unique quick motion in 4K (60fps max., which is approximately 2.5x slower) or Full HD (180fps max., or 7.5x slower) quality.

Rack Focus Transition

The Focus Transition function automatically shifts the focus point at a constant speed for precise in-focus to out-focus points (for example, background to foreground) to give you an impressive 'rack focus' motion picture effect.

Live Output & Full Size HDMI

The LUMIX GH5 is capable of 4:2:2 10-bit real-time image output to an external monitor or recorder via an optional HDMI cable (full size Type A), while simultaneously providing an internal 4:2:2 10-bit recording*. It is suitable for professional video production requiring accurate monitoring of the imagery, or high quality recording to external devices using a ProRes codec.

*4K 60p/50p is output only

6K 30fps / 4K 60 fps Photo Burst

Shoot with unlimited burst, then choose and extract the frames you want to keep. The new 6K PHOTO* mode (30fps) allows you to capture the perfect moment at stunning ~18 Megapixel resolution. The ultra-high speed 4K PHOTO mode (60fps) captures even faster motion, which is simply not possible in conventional DSLR cameras.

*6K PHOTO is a high speed, burst shooting function that cuts a still image out of 4:3 or 3:2 video footage featuring approximately 18 Megapixel (6000 x 3000 lines) resolution.

Post Focus (Shoot Now, Focus Later)

The Post Focus function gives you the power to focus after you've taken the shot! Simply capture the scene, review the image, and touch the part of the photo you'd like pin sharp. Set and save. This advanced processing is done entirely in-camera.

Focus Stacking (Adjust the Focus Area After Shooting)

The Focus Stacking function enables you to adjust the focus area after shooting by blending multiple images taken at different focus distances to alter image depth of field. Choosing the focus plane becomes extremely useful when shooting close ups wide open, with fast lenses, or macro photography.

DFD Ultra Fast Motion Detection & Focus

Panasonic's DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology 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.

*In AFS, at wide-end with H-ES12060 (CIPA).

225-Point AF

The focus detect area is massively increased from 49 points (LUMIX GH4) to 225 points for more flexible composition.

Custom Multi AF

The Custom Multi AF mode allows you to freely select an array of blocks inside the 225 focusing area.

AF Zone Selectable

The focus area group size and position can be customized for Multi AF / Custom Multi AF.

AF Customize

With more customized AF settings, it is now possible to adjust AF directionality depending on the shooting scene.

Selective AF

A Joystick Controller on the back of the LUMIX GH5 is used to smoothly and intuitively select focus blocks inside the focusing area overlay.

Joystick Control

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 Function (Fn) buttons. All these components are designed to be operated easily and without taking your eyes away from the viewfinder.

5-Axis Dual Image Stabilizer II

5-axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) II intelligent compensation enables up to 5-stops of slower shutter speeds even through telephoto lenses. The LUMIX GH5 nearly 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.

*Based on the CIPA standard [Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=50-140mm (35mm film camera equivalent f=100-280mm), when H-FS14140 is used.]

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/Blu Ray and digital cinema production. You can select from four recording formats such as AVCHD and MP4 for easy playback, or MP4 (LPCM) and MOV for professional editing workflows.

The LUMIX GH5 is compatible with both NTSC and PAL system frequencies, including 59.94 Hz (NTSC), 50.00 Hz (PAL), or 24.00 Hz (CINEMA).

Dual SD Card Slots

Dual SD card slots increase recording capacity and file arrangement efficiency. 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.

Large OLED LVF

The high-resolution OLED Live Viewfinder displays a visible image even under direct sunlight. 0.76x magnification (35mm camera equivalent) makes it easy to see image detail, settings, and icons. The long eye point (eye relief) distance of 21mm is excellent for those who wear glasses.

Bluetooth 4.2 & 5GHz WiFi

Bluetooth 4.2 (Low Energy) enables full-time connection between camera and smartphone with low energy consumption. After shooting, it automatically switches to WiFi connection, transferring data to your smartphone. The 5GHz (IEEE802.11ac) WiFi interface is incredibly fast. You can use Panasonic's Lumix Image App for Android / iOS to control shutter and other settings, plus, video record Start / Stop without physically touching the camera.
