The Panasonic LUMIX BGH1 Cinema Camera is the first Micro Four Thirds 4K camera approved by Netflix. Those who are aspiring to create shows for the online streaming service will enjoy its versatility in cinema prodction and even vlogging. Its lightweight and compact design makes it an ideal device when you're taking shots using drones or gimbals. 

It features a 10.2-megapixel sensor and a 13-stop dynamic range to aptly adjust to the amount of lighting in every scene. This lightweight camera can record 4K 60p video which can be enhanced through Varicam Look, advanced autofocus, and dual-native ISO. Professional color graders will also have an easier time thanks to its Hybrid Log-Gamma.

Unlimited videos can be recorded in either GOP, MOV, or MP4 formats in H.264 and H.265/HEVC codecs, while video outputs can be done via the HDMI 2.0 output for 4K and 3G-SDI for 1080p. Superb slow motion footages are also possible by shooting at 1080p 240fps. The BGH1 is the perfect cinema camera when using multiple cameras in one shot because its timecode and Genlock BNC ports allow easy post-production synching.

For easier access to pre-set setting, you can program the four function buttons to automatically delivery a certain feel to the shot. The camera can also be controlled via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, while the LUMIX Tether app allows you to control up to 12 BGH1s. As for audio, the camera has a built-in microphone and a 3.5mm mic input. You can also monitor the sounds using the 3.5mm headphone jack. Finally, you can also stabilize the shots and play with more angles by mounting the Panasonic LUMIX BGH1 onto a tripod with the help of four 1/4"-20 mounting threads.


Product Features in Detail

Live MOS Sensor with Dual Native ISO

The LUMIX BGH1's 10.2-megapixel Live MOS sensor has Dual Native ISO technology that reduces noise while maximizing image quality to deliver a maximum ISO 51200/Extended ISO 204800 that helps minimize image noise and boost light sensitivity to render dark areas in the frame.

13-stops wide dynamic range with V-Log L

V-Log L's13 stops of dynamic range provide accurate reproduction of colours from highlights to dark areas. V-Log L also has identical characteristics with its predecessor, V-Log, making the latter's LUTs usable for color-grading footage from Varicam series cameras.

Various recording modes

The Panasonic LUMIX BGH1 can conduct C4K/4K 60p/50p 4:2:0 10-bit, C4K/4K 30p/25p/24p 4:2:2 10-bit, and ALL-Intra 400 Mbps recording, which are perfect for providing rich colour profiles in post-production. You can also use its simultaneous C4K/4K 60p/50p 4:2:0 10-bit internal recording and C4K/4K 60p/50p 4:2:2 10-bit live output for external recording via HDMI. It also supports unlimited anamorphic 4K recording to provide creativity and flexibility that professional videographers look for in various production environments.

Heat-resistant camera

ries, the exterior is designed for uniform heat dissipation. Its aluminum and magnesium alloy body-frame is designed to regulate the camera's temperature to avoid overheating. The BGH1 also has a cooling fan that helps dissipate heat while reducing the camera's weight to maintain its portability.

SDI/HDMI output

The BGH1 is the first LUMIX camera with an SDI (3G-SDI) terminal that supports 1080p output, retains stable connection despite long cables, and allows monitoring. Consequently, simultaneous recording via HDMI or USB widens your video production options.

Genlock IN/Timecode IN/OUT

Multi-camera control and live-streaming in mind, BGH1 delivers another LUMIX first with Genlock IN. When used with timecode, Genlock facilitates high-precision frame synchronization based on signals from the external input. This function is ideal during live sporting events that would need multiple cameras. Aside from the seamless feed connection, each video has a timecode that will help patch footages together with ease.
