The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH5 is a revolutionary compact digital camera that boasts of 4K Video at 60/50p as well as 4:2:2 10-bit 4K Video Recording to capture footages of superb quality. While recording, stunning images can also be extracted by using either the 6K Photo Mode at 30 fps or the 4K Photo Mode at 60 fps. Aside from video, the DMC-GH5 is also reliable with pictures thanks to the combination of the 20.3 megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor and the Venue Engine 10 Image Processor. Finding that perfect frame is possible through the 3,680k-dot OLED Live View Finder while image blur due to camera shake is minimized by the five-axis Dual Image Stabilization. Put the GH5's Depth from Defocus AF Technology to lock in moving subjects and infuse ample storage space by maximizing the camera's two UHS-II SD card slots. Use the 3.2", 1620k-dot TFT touchscreen LCD monitor to review saved media or adjust camera settings. Online sharing and wireless control can be activated through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC connectivity. All of these functions are housed on a durable magnesium alloy frame that makes the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH5 lightweight.
Product Features in Detail
20.3 Megapixel Sensor
The LUMIX GH5 packs a real punch with its high performance Digital Live MOS sensor sporting a 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 created by you and crafted by Panasonic engineering.
Venus Engine image processor
The camera also comes with a new image processor Venus Engine, which achieves improvement especially in natural texture expression. The engine’s Multi-pixel Luminance Generation renders clear, sharp images by referring to a 9x larger area of pixel information during the de-mosaic process for precise detail reproduction. With Intelligent Detail Processing, the characteristic of every single pixel is analyzed to detect whether the pixel is located at a flat, detail or edge part of the picture. Optimum processing according to the characteristic of each pixel is then applied. This results in high-precision yet natural images with stunning detail suppressing false colors at its edges.
4K 60p/50p video
The LUMIX GH5 takes professional shooting performance to another level with high-precision, silky smooth 4K 60p/50p (QFHD 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. You also achieve perfect panning control and a suppression of the rolling shutter effect as seen in lesser frame rates.
4:2:2 10-bit Internal Recording
The LUMIX GH5 brings game changing internal 4:2:2 10-bit 4K video recording. For example, 10-bit will render all the subtleties of graduated skies and sunsets without the banding so prone to 8-bit. The power of having film creation capabilities inside the camera sets a new precedent in guerilla style filmmaking, also you can record 4:2:2 10-bit to SD card whilst simultaneously feeding the live signal thru a full-size HDMI port connected to an external monitor or recorder. 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 to match professional intent.
Three Dimensional Colour Control
Three Dimensional Color Control detects not only hue and saturation, but also brightness, and applies optimum control according to the value of each factor. This achieves rich color reproduction from shadows to highlights of the image. The conventional Multi Process NR (Noise Reduction) is upgraded to High Precision Multi Process NR. It boasts 4x the noise identification accuracy compared to the previous engine and preserves details even after the noise reduction process. As a result, photos can be clearly shot even at high sensitivity ISO values of up to 25,600.
5-Axis Dual Image Stabilization
The LUMIX GH5 also incorporates the 5-axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) 2, which suppresses blurring in more powerful and advanced ways for both photo and video recording, including 4K video. Combining an O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer, 2-axis) and B.I.S. (Body Image Stabilizer, 5-axis), it compensates for larger movements which were conventionally uncontrollable. The LUMIX GH5’s high-precision gyro sensor controls both the O.I.S. and B.I.S. compensation by studying the focal length and shooting conditions, making it possible to use a max. 5-stop slower shutter speed. This is highly beneficial not only for wide-angle and telephoto shots, but also in adverse situations, such as at night-time or when shooting with one hand.
Depth from Defocus Technology
Panasonic's innovative DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology is constantly evolving and its 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.
6K and 4K Photo Modes
The LUMIX GH5’s new 6K PHOTO function makes it possible to capture unmissable moments at 30 fps by extracting the frame with the best timing out of the 6K burst file (in 3:2 or 4:3 aspect) to save as an approximately 18-megapixel equivalent high resolution photo. 4K PHOTO has also been upgraded enabling 60 fps high speed capture in approximately 8-megapixel equivalent resolution. In 6K/4K PHOTO, three exclusive modes are available to choose from depending on the situation; 6K/4K Burst, 6K/4K Burst (Start/Stop) and 6K/4K Pre-burst.
By compensating the signal information between the frames, the Venus Engine makes it possible to apply Post Recording Refinement over the pictures to correct distortion and reduce noise when playing back or cutting images out of the 6K/4K burst file. As a result, the picture quality of 6K/4K PHOTO shot at high shutter speed in high sensitivity or those shot in panning are dramatically improved.
Large OLED Live View Finder
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. Adopting a static-type touch control system, the 3.2-inch free-angle rear screen in 3:2 aspect with 1,620K-dot high resolution achieves approximately 100% field of view.
Post Focus Function
If focus is not exactly as the user intended when the shutter is pressed, the LUMIX GH5’s Post Focus function enables users to select the specific focus point even after shooting – particularly helpful in situations like macro shooting where severe focusing is required. In addition, the camera also features a Focus Stacking function. Taking a single macro photo with specific areas in focus can sometimes be difficult, Focus Stacking enables users to take multiple images of the same frame with different focus points. You can then combine them into one image with the defocus as you like.
