The Panasonic LUMIX DC-GH5 takes the LUMIX pedigree and a raft of innovations to create the most powerful hybrid ever designed for the uncompromising video professional.

The DC-GH5 introduces a trio of world-firsts that make it an undisputed leader in its class. It is the first consumer digital camera to offer 4K 10-bit 4:2:2 25/30p video recording to SD Card (1); has the distinction of offering 4K quality video at 50/60 frames per second (2); and has evolved its original 4K Photo to the stunning 6K Photo (3).

In addition, this camera also offers unrivalled picture quality with a 20-megapixel sensor and 5-Axis Dual IS 2 (4) for outstanding stabilisation. The DC-GH5 is built with the demands of the professional in mind, from the weather-sealed body to its large-capacity batteries, dual SD Card slots and powerful Bluetooth and Wi-fi connectivity.

Features

4K 10-bit 4:2:2 25/30p Video Recording to SD Card
The DC-GH5’s 10bit 4:2:2 video recording in 4K resolution captures over 1 billion colours - in comparison, other cameras in this class can only offer 16.7 million colours. 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.

In the past, this level of quality could only be achieved with a broadcast camera, far larger and heavier and costing many times more than the DC-GH5. To capture data, an external recorder would be needed, meaning additional cost and bulk. The DC-GH5’s sleek, powerful body and direct SD Card recording is a highly mobile and lightweight solution with no compromise on quality - meeting the demands of a range of challenging professional shooting conditions, particularly when the user can’t carry a lot of equipment.

4K 50p/60p Video Recording
The DC-GH5 is the only camera in its class to offer amazing 4K quality at 50/60fps. This higher frame rate is perfect for capturing very natural motion for applications such as documentary film making and news reporting. It’s also ideal for creating gorgeous slow motion footage while maintaining the level of detail provided by 4K resolution. And for those who need even higher frame rates for cinematic slow motion, the DC-GH5 is capable of recording at up to 180fps in full high definition.

20-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor for Incredible Image Quality
The DC-GH5 has a new 20-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor with the Low Pass Filter removed for enhanced resolution and detail. In addition, the new Venus Engine has a number of technologies that are designed to deliver a stunningly natural image. Multipixel Luminance Generation ensures that even pixels on the edges of images are precise without false colours. Three-dimensional Colour Control balances hue, saturation and brightness for rich colour reproduction from dark to light. High Precision Multi Process Noise Reduction both identifies noise and preserves detail, supporting low-light shooting at ISO 25600.

The Digital Live MOS sensor’s signal readout speed is 1.7x faster than the GH4, and the Venus Engine processes the signals 1.3x faster. As a result, the DC-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. This ensures the lens’ full angle of view is maintained.

Amazing 5-Axis Dual IS 2 Stabilisation
Panasonic’s Dual IS 2 technology combines 5-axis internal stabilisation with the optical image stabilisation in selected lenses to provide up to 5 stops of image stabilisation (5), even at telephoto focal lengths. Dual IS enables photographers to use much slower shutter speeds and ISO values and still achieve pin sharp results. Videographers can get incredibly stable performance when shooting handheld, even in the highest quality video modes. This is a revolutionary improvement for professionals, and will in many situations eliminate the need to carry a tripod or Steadicam rig.

Industry-leading 6K Photo
Panasonic was the first to introduce 4K Photo, allowing users to select a high quality still photo from a precise moment of video footage. Now, with 6K Photo, the DC-GH5 can record a burst of 18 megapixel still images continuously at 30fps with no buffer limit, so photographers never miss that decisive moment. The original 4K Photo now features twice the frame rate, capturing 60fps in 8-megapixel resolution. In 6K/4K PHOTO, three exclusive modes can be selected depending on the situation: 6K/4K Burst, 6K/4K Burst (Start/Stop) and 6K/4K Pre-burst.

A Camera Built for the Exacting Professional
The DC-GH5 has a magnesium alloy weather sealed construction that is splash, dust and freeze-proof, for professionals who rely on their equipment to keep performing in any environment. Panasonic’s heat dissipation technology prevents overheating and ensures the camera can record without time restrictions, even with stabilisation activated and using the highest quality 4K video modes.

The large capacity batteries enable hours of uninterrupted video shooting, and when paired with the optional battery grip the battery life is doubled. The Dual SD UHS-II Card slots - a first in a LUMIX camera - also provide the flexibility and protection of recording simultaneously to both cards or backing up data to the second SD Card slot. These features make the DC-GH5 the best choice for wedding and event videographers, documentary photographers and film makers - and in any situation where a professional’s reputation rests on their ability to capture a once in a lifetime moment.

3.6 million-dot OLED Viewfinder
For precise shooting, the camera is equipped with a best-in-class 3.6 million-dot OLED viewfinder that has an increased magnification of 0.76x. This very large, crystal clear and highly accurate viewfinder delivers perfect results in the brightest outdoor conditions, supported by a sizeable 3.2-inch articulated touch screen monitor, with a sharp 1.6 million-dot resolution. Other features the field user will appreciate are full size HDMI output, removing the need for an adaptor and providing greater data protection. Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy connection and secure 5GHz Wi-Fi® (IEEE 802.11ac) streamline field work with convenient remote control and sharing with other devices, and faster data transmission.

XLR Microphone Adaptor DMW-XLR1 (Optional Accessory)
When paired with the DMW-XLR1, the DC-GH5 gains two professional grade XLR inputs, enabling videographers to use their broadcast level microphones. The adaptor is powered by the DC-GH5 battery and audio is transferred cable-free to the video file on the SD Card. This interface unit also supports 48 volt phantom power (which provides power to condenser microphones) and includes independent pads, low cut filters and gain control on each channel. The XLR1 also has a hot shoe mount on top to conveniently mount a microphone, wireless microphone receiver or a video light.

Battery Grip DMW-BGGH5 (Optional Accessory)
The Battery Grip is weather sealed, enables a second battery to be used and replicates the main camera controls for portrait shooting convenience, including the joystick.

V-Log Compatibility (with purchase of V-Log L video recording software upgrade)
The DC-GH5’s V-Log profile enables videographers to capture footage with the same flat colour profile found in Panasonic’s Varicam broadcast camera. This profile offers exceptional flexibility as well as a wider dynamic range for colour grading in post-production. It increases the dynamic range in video shooting to over 12 stops of latitude and has similar characteristics to Cineon, which is a characteristic curve for film digitisation. V-Log is the best way to shoot for professionals looking to heavily colour grade, used in conjunction with 4K 10-bit 4:2:2 mode.
