Bundling the advanced, video-optimized camera with a mic to improve your audio, the Panasonic Lumix GH5 Mirrorless Camera Audio Kit from B&H includes the advanced GH5 mirrorless body and a camera-mounted directional microphone.

Ultracompact and Ultralightweight
Measuring just 2.7" long and weighing only 1.7 ounces, the MKE 200 is an unobtrusive companion for your camera- or smartphone-based video rig; it will never intrude on the shot and it's so light that you'll forget it's even there. Also, the integral shoe mount allows the MKE 200 to be attached directly to your camera, no external hardware required.
Directional Sound Pickup
Most built-in camera and smartphone microphones are omnidirectional to pick up sound from all directions, which results in undue noise and ambience. The MKE 200 uses a supercardioid polar pattern to capture sources in front of the mic while attenuating side- and rear-entry sound. Low-noise electronics and a sensitive condenser element allow it to deliver more detailed audio than the mics typically found in cameras, mobile devices, and portable recorders.
Quick and Secure Hookup to Camera, Smartphone, or Tablet
The MKE 200's 3.5mm output port can be connected to a range of devices using the two supplied coiled cables, each featuring a locking 3.5mm TRS plug on one end that prevents accidental disconnection at the mic.

One cable is terminated with a standard 3.5mm TRS plug for compatible hookup to your camera, DSLR, or portable handheld audio recorder, while the other cable has a 3.5mm TRRS plug to allow direct connection to mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
No Batteries Required
Since the MKE 200 operates on plug-in power (2 to 10V), no batteries are required to run the microphone. Just hook up the MKE 200 to your camera or mobile device and forget about having to check, swap, or charge batteries.
Internal Suspension Mount Minimizes Handling Noise
The MKE 200 incorporates an internal suspension mount to reject the transfer of vibrations such as camera/smartphone handling noise. Plus, the bottom of the MKE 200 features a camera shoe mount, ensuring simple attachment to your camera or shoe-equipped stand or gimbal.
Built-In Wind Protection Minimizes Wind Noise
Knowing that the MKE 200 may be used in challenging shooting conditions, Sennheiser designed the MKE 200 with built-in wind protection, enabling the mic to lessen undesirable wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners without requiring that you slip on a separate foam windscreen. For maximum reduction of wind noise in outdoor environments, use the included furry windshield.

Great camera

By Zachary David
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-19

Was looking to upgrade from my old G85, and this was perfect! Has all the same controls and more and I felt at home with it as I've stuck with the lumix cameras for a while now! The kit is also great and comes with some accessories that were helpful in my traveling.

Nothing comes close for the money and ease of use.

If fitted with the LUMIX 12-35 lens, nothing comes close to the quality and ease of use in the 4K/60P world of cams for 2k or less.

I already own a GH4; but I've been experimenting with pulling off individual image frames from a video. Shooting in 4K gives me bigger images and 60FPS gives me less blur Blur between frames is normally desirable but not for what I am doing. Still experimenting but getting some interesting results.

Does most things very very well. Best bang for buck

I bought the gh5 roughly 6 months ago and pair it with the Leica 8-18mm, 25mm 1.7 and 42.5mm 1.7. The camera is insane bang for buck when it comes to video, photo quality is pretty good and lenses are relatively cheap compared to full frame. The camera also has some really helpful features like focus peaking, zebra pattern, and histogram. It's ergonamically fantanstic. The only downfall of this camera is the autofocus which pulses here and there, but I can just use manual. Also the low loght performance is weak. I typically use 1600 iso at most, but fast lenses help. This also helps me be a better photographer and chase light at night. For the price the camera is strong compared to the competition and with the gh6 coming out soon MFT will continue to have support. I'll include some car pictures I've taken. I have shot a few music videos and plan to shoot automotive sequences soon. Beast of a camera!

the most ovrrated camera ever

There are so many downs to this camera that panasonic should be ashamed and actually i guess it started its crisis with this terrible camera. I own one since 3 years i rarely use it and when ai do i do for the worst job i have. Bad video quality, moiree that is unbearable for a pro camera, they should have kepts like the gh5s the 10mpx sensor of the gh4 for at least, no autofocus at all, the main lens is terrible and really the color is unbearable, one of the worst ever.. never buy it and nor the successor which is just a waste of money in my opinion.. Image quality is so low that is really unbearable.

Great body

I have sort of bought into the Panasonic Lumix micro four thirds system. It will work with lenses I already have. I bought this, now, instead of the next iteration of Lumix (GH5 II or the GH6) because it uses the BP19 batteries that I have for my GH4 cameras. I live in Alaska and getting lithium batteries up here is a challenge. They can ship as part of the camera kit box, but not separate. This allows me to use what I have instead to trying to get spares of a different model lithium batteries.

How long can it shoot 3840x2160 @ 24fps internally on 64GB card?
Asked by: Jebin R.
It will shoot until the card is full, because it does not have any 29 min 59 sec limitations. You would get roughly 10 minutes at 10-bit 4:2:2 or under 60 minutes at standard rates.

How can I get the interfit honey badger strobe to work with this camera?
Asked by: Tav
Get the Interfit S1 Manual Remote for all Cameras, BH #INTR1B. This will fire the flash and allow manual power adjustment of the Honey Badger. If you're looking for TTL functionality with the GH5, sorry, Interfit doesn't offer that.

Is there a Sony-like Clear Zoom feature?
Asked by: Steve
The GH5 has a mode called Extra Tele Conversion which is very similar to the Sony Clear Image Zoom . In HD mode the Extra Tele Conversion will give you an additional 2x zoom and in 4k it will be 1.4x.
