Panasonic is proud to announce the LUMIX DMC-GH5, its flagship digital single lens mirrorless camera that takes the LUMIX pedigree and a raft of innovations to create the most powerful hybrid ever designed for the uncompromising video professional. 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. 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). 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.
