  • Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with 12-60mm Lens

    Upgraded and redesigned, the Lumix DC-GH5 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with 12-60mm Lens from Panasonic provides an imaging platform for shooters who demand some of the best video and still photography quality they can get in a single compact camera. At the heart of the camera is a 20.3MP Digital Live MOS sensor and a newly developed Venus Engine processor, which both offer dramatically improved processing times over its predecessor. This enables the ability to record 4K video at up to 60 fps, 10-bit 4:2:2 internal recording with select settings, Full HD video at up to 180 fps, 12 fps continuous shooting, and sensitivities up to ISO 25600. Also, the camera features built-in 5-axis sensor stabilization, which can work with certain lenses to activate Dual I.S. 2 for highly effective shake correction that can compensate for up to 5 stops of shutter speed. Other improvements include a speedier and more accurate Advanced DFD autofocus system that can lock on in just 0.05 seconds, as well as 6K PHOTO at 30 fps and 4K PHOTO at up to 60 fps.

    Along with all these internal improvements, the body received some significant upgrades as well. For viewing and composing images both the 0.76x OLED viewfinder and 3.2" free-angle touchscreen received resolution bumps to 3.68m dots and 1.62m dots, respectively. This will make shooting more comfortable and more accurate. The magnesium-alloy body is now freezeproof to 14°F in addition to splash and dustproof. For fast image transfer and saving, there are now two UHS-II SD card slots. Additionally, for a completely wireless setup it offers both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for advanced functionality when paired with a mobile app.

    Bundled with the camera body is the Leica DG Vario-Elmart 12-60mm f/2.8-4 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens, a versatile wide-angle to short telephoto zoom with an equivalent focal length of 24-120mm. The lens is an excellent match for the GH5 with sharp, well-corrected optics that create clear images with minimal aberrations. The lens also has a linear motor for fast, near-silent focusing during stills and video as well as the POWER Optical Image Stabilizer to minimize the appearance of camera shake. Additionally, the durable metal construction of the lens is splash, dust, and freezeproof.

    20.3MP Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine
    Packing in a newly developed 20.3MP Digital Live MOS sensor without an optical low-pass filter and a new Venus Engine processor, the GH5 claims to produce the best image quality to date from a Lumix camera. Using Multipixel Luminance Generation and Intelligent Detail Processing, it will maximize sharpness and details as well as accuracy in a variety of lighting conditions. It offers excellent three-dimension color control and precise noise reduction techniques to help with shooting at sensitivities up to ISO 25600. It also enables shooting speeds of up to 12 fps with AF-S or manual focus modes.
    4K Video Recording
    The GH5 is a capable video camera in addition to its stills capabilities. The flagship feature is UHD 4K video at up to 60 fps, though another excellent spec is the ability to record 4:2:2 10-bit files at resolutions up to DCI and UHD 4K at 24/30 fps. A full-size HDMI port is present on the camera for high-quality output at 4:2:2 10-bit in all settings for use with external monitors and recorders. The camera also offers high bit-rate recording for highly detailed images free of compression artifacts.

    For more advanced users, multiple picture styles are available to provide a more gradable image, such as CINELIKE V and CINELIKE D, as well as an in-camera LUT to make monitoring easier. Also, users will have access to overcranking and undercranking settings, which provide speeds up to 2.5x slower in 4K (60 fps) and 7.5x slower in Full HD (180 fps). Also, a 4K Anamorphic mode is available, which will let you record in a proper 4:3 ratio for adjustment in post-production.

    The GH5 is designed to be an expandable system, with multiple options available to help improve video recording capabilities. Examples of this are an optional V-Log L upgrade and separately available accessories such as the XLR Microphone Adapter that provides XLR inputs and physical controls through a hot shoe connection. Users can also use standard microphones and headphones via the 3.5mm input and output jacks.
    6K and 4K PHOTO
    Utilizing the GH5's video recording capabilities, a trio of still shooting modes are available for recording continuous 8MP stills at a 60 or 30 fps shooting rate or 18MP stills at a 30 fps shooting rate:
    • Burst: This mode will allow you to continuously record, making it ideal for instances where you need a fast frame rate in order to capture the best moment.
    • Pre-Burst: This mode is ideal for times when you're unsure of the critical moment to press the shutter button and will record images one second prior to and one second after pressing the shutter button in order to give you 60 frames to choose from.
    • Burst (S/S): This mode most closely follows the video recording process, and allows you to playback your video, pause at the chosen moment, and use the shutter button to mark a chosen frame from the video and save it as a single 8 or 18 MP frame.
    Dual I.S. 2
    Helping to achieve the utmost sharpness when photographing handheld, Dual I.S. 2 combines the GH5's sensor-shift image stabilization technology with lens-based image stabilization to compensate for a broader range of movement types to render sharper, clearer imagery. Dual I.S. 2 requires the use of compatible Lumix lenses featuring O.I.S. This stabilization system is able to compensate for approximately 5 stops of camera shake.
    Body Design and Built-In Wi-Fi
    • A large OLED Live View Finder has an impressive 3.86m-dot resolution and 0.76x magnification for eye-level composition.
    • A larger means for image composition and playback, the 3.2" 1.62m-dot rear RGBW LCD monitor has a free angle, tilt and swivel design to support viewing from a variety of angles. It is also a touchscreen, which permits intuitive menu navigation and settings control.
    • Dual UHS-II SD card slots are present which provides settings such as Relay Recording to automatically switch cards when one is full; Backup Recording, which records the same data to both cards simultaneously; and Allocation Recording, which lets you save certain files to each card for easier organization.
    • Constructed from magnesium alloy with die-cast front and rear frames, the GH5 features a durable design that also incorporates extensive sealing at each joint, dial, and button to render it both splash- and dust-proof as well as freezeproof to 14°F.
    • A joystick is available on the rear of the camera to make changing many settings easier and more intuitive, such as changing a focus point.
    • The sleek flat-body profile incorporates both front and rear dials for intuitive control over aperture and shutter speed settings. Multiple assignable function buttons are also available, as well as a dedicated exposure compensation dial.
    • Built-in 5 GHz Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC and Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy allows for wireless image sharing and remote camera control from linked smartphones and tablets. Bluetooth LE also enables a constant connection to your mobile device, allowing for functions such as geolocation and automatic image transfer.
    225-Area Advanced Depth-From-Defocus AF System
    For accelerated autofocus performance, an Advanced DFD (Depth-From-Defocus) technology is employed to quickly calculate the distance to subjects and adjust the focusing position in as little as 0.05 seconds, which enables continuous shooting up to 9 fps with continuous AF. This contrast-detection type focus method benefits both still and video recording modes, as well as subject tracking applications where subject color, size, and motion vectors are used to intelligently lock-onto the moving subjects and ensure precise focus. The sensitivity and speed can be adjusted to further improve performance with certain subjects. It also features 225 AF areas, which provide excellent control over where the camera will focus. Additionally, supporting working in low-light conditions, a Starlight AF feature enables accurate AF performance down to -4 EV.

    Benefitting manual focus operation, focus peaking is available that highlights bright edges of contrast with a colored outline for quickly recognizing your focus point, as well as Touch MF Assist for touch-to-focus operation.
    Other Camera Features
    • A mechanical focal plane shutter enables a fast maximum shutter speed of 1/8000 sec, as well as a top flash sync speed of 1/250 sec. An electronic shutter function also avails a top shutter speed of 1/16,000 sec to better enable working in bright conditions and with wider aperture settings.
    • Raw image files can be processed in-camera for a more streamlined post-production workflow.

  • Atomos Ninja V 5" 4K HDMI Recording Monitor

    The Atomos Ninja V 5" 4K HDMI Recording Monitor is a 5" on-camera monitor/recorder that records and plays back DCI 4K, UHD 4K, and HD video from purpose-built mini-SSDs. It features a 10-bit FRC IPS screen with a brightness of 1000 cd/m², which makes it suitable for use in both exterior and interior conditions. The AtomHDR display technology allows you to accurately monitor your log gamma footage without having to view flat, washed-out looking images or use a LUT to compress the dynamic range and color space. The monitor supports popular log formats from Sony, Canon, Panasonic, ARRI, RED, and JVC cameras. The settings only affect viewing, with recorded video remaining unaltered.

    Built to withstand the rigors of production, the Ninja V features an aluminum chassis and powers from a single L-series battery. Additional features include a variety of onscreen exposure analysis, framing, and focus assist tools, as well as anamorphic de-squeeze. A power supply and SSD Caddy are included with the unit.

    Designed with an interface that differs somewhat from prior units, the Ninja V's HDR functions are accessed through the MON buttons and its ProRes options are chosen via the arrows on the unit's upper left corner. The Ninja V can record to both AtomX SSDmini or standard 2.5" SSD drives, fitting up to 150 minutes of 4K video on an 1TB drive. Separately available AtomX Ethernet/NDI and SYNC Expansion Modules enable you to output live video over IP or add wireless timecode for multicamera shoots respectively.

    AtomHDR

    With AtomHDR you can monitor up to ten stops of dynamic range of your camera's LOG image. Most conventional monitors can only display six or seven stops, which is fine for standard footage; but a Log image will look overly flat. It is also superior to monitoring with a loaded LUT, which can clip the highlights and mask shadows.

Panasonic DC-GH5 Reviews

Lumix DC-GH5 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with 12-60mm Lens and Ninja V Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 147.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outstanding Color - Great Formfactor The 422 internal color capture at 4k is amazing! It rivals the C300 mk2. The only real challenge is the codec when editing. You really need a MONSTER of a computer to edit these files "as is". That's why I've only given this camera 4 out of 5 stars. I've just been converting the files to ProRes before I edit them. It's a hassle, but worth the color quality. The Image Stabilization is BANANAS!! Love it. Rock solid images with the IS in-body and in the lens. Granted, this is a micro four thirds sensor, but I've gotten some decent shallow depth of field with the 12-35mm f/2.8 Panasonic lens. Seriously thinking about getting a second one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly good MFT camera GH5 levels up with waveforms and scopes, usable 120 fps, amazing 5-axis stabilization (when paired with dual I.S. lenses) and more customization than you could ever need. There's a "tripod mode" stabilization feature called I.S. Lock that no one is talking about that's truly a game changer for in-camera stabilization. Being able to switch on the fly from "handheld" stabilized to "locked down" stabilized is extremely useful shooting weddings without stabilizers or sticks. I haven't had a chance to grade the 10bit just yet but looking forward to saying goodbye to banding issues that plague in-camera recording on virtually every other camera sub 5k.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every single penny I am a professional content creator and have used the GH4 metabones to canon EF for the last 2 years. I upgraded to the GH5 and decided to use the Lumix 12-35 2.8 ii instead of the EF lenses. I cannot believe this camera! Even for stills... I no longer run to my canon. I can walk into any situation and produce amazing video and stills all handheld. The low light is still not as good as the current Sony's but the GH5 can hold high ISOs and the noise has a film grain look to it which is awesome. A massive improvement over the GH4 I highly recommend this camera to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Legend Is Back, And Better Than Ever! The GH5 is the stuff of legend. This feature packed camera is capable for both stills and video. The rugged build quality and mostly good ergonomic make this body inspire confidence, regardless of where you may be. The GH5 is a professional tool, priced at a prosumer level. While lowlight is not perfect in movie mode, it is better than most dedicated Cinema cameras. Battery life is good. The back flip out screen is handy for taking creative shots. In the right hands this camera is a serious creative weapon. And being a M43 system camera means you can rig it to be as large or as small as your gig requires. The specs speak for themselves. If you are thinking about it, well just hit add to cart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best camera I have ever used! I love this camera, the quality is crisp and clear, the color is clean and organic. I am coming from shooting on the Canon 5D Mark III. I love the accurate focus peaking and zebras, as well as the swivel touchscreen as well as many other features. The 5D just doesn't cut close to a number of features this camera has. The handiness of all these little features allows me to work much faster and more effectively than any other camera I have used in this price range. I am a run-and-gun shooter. I need to have my camera ready at a moments notice. Put a speed booster on the camera and it is pretty good in low light as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improves on it's ground breaking predecessor the GH4 I have used the GH3, GH4 and now the GH5. They are improved/added almost everything you could have asked for in a video camera. No need to cover the specs, I'm sure you already know them. I will mention a few things I have noticed. -Clearer, brighter and over all prettier video -Better slowmo -A little bit shorter battery life than the GH4 -Much appreciated sensor stabilization -20 Mega Pixel sensor. I can't name all the other great things about this camera! The only thing that I can't see that they improved is the Dynamic range. But with V-Log you get 12 stops. That isn't bad at all. Happy shooting

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing Better for the Price This camera is by no means perfect for video (what else would anyone purchase it for?) but it is the absolute best you can get anywhere close to this price. Pros: High frame rates, internal stabilization, full sized HDMI, greatly improved image from the 4, higher bit rates and 422 color. Cons: Noise in low light (better than the 4), very noisy at higher ISO (no point going above 1600), watch out for some weird artifacting when combining internal stabilization with lens stabilization and camera movement (note- I'm using an older model Lumix 14-140, so this could be part of the issue).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang for your buck! Although I bought this with the intent to use it for videography, because of its video capabilities, I was pleasantly surprised at the stills the camera is capable of producing. The noise is minimal even for a MFT sensor. Definitely a run and gun camera or probably the best overall camera. If your intent is capturing video, but want to be able to take excellent stills, you should consider this camera. It may not take 50mp stills, but it'll take really good stills, if you don't need huge files and just want excellent family photos or portraits. I can see this camera as a perfect camera for traveling or outdoor adventures due to its size and weight. Perfect for the wanderer who does not want to carry all their gear. Will make an excellent run and gun. Pairs perfectly with the zhiyun crane for amazingly smooth video.

question

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.

question

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.

question

how long does the battery last shooting the highest res 1080p?
Asked by: susan s.
You get about 200 minutes recording video per battery. As always, we suggest if you are doing more than casual shooting, get extra batteries.

question

Has there been any hint that there will eventually be a new one-piece AC adapter for the GH5 or will we have to rely on the same one sold for the GH4 that has to be purchased in 2 separate pieces?
Asked by: Dale S.
We have not heard any word of a new, one piece AC power supply for the GH5. However the GH5 will be able to use the same power supply option as the GH4, which are B&H Numbers PADMWAC10 and PADMWDCC12.

question

When shooting video in 5K Open Gate Anamorphic Mode at 24fps using the HEVCB 2.65 codec (4.2.0) in a multi-camera GH5 shoot where remote director's review and control are required:1) Is the GH5 recording time unlimited in open gate mode ?2) Do all internal audio recording functions work, including when using the DVM-XLR-1 external adapter ?3) Does one need a UHS-II V90 SDXC card or will a V60 card suffice for 5K Open Gate at 200mbps ?4) Is the maximum size card 256GB or 512GB ?5) Does the digital focus pull (two sequential focus points) function work in 5K Open Gate Mode ?6) Does IBIS work in 5K mode ?7) Since there is no external HDMI recording capability in 5K Open Gate Mode, can one use either the WiFi App or the USB 3.1C hardwired tether App (on a Windows laptop) to externally monitor and control the video shoot ? (we realize this will require a separate android tablet or Windowslaptop for each camera)8) Is the camera's onboard 3 LCD active while using do the the WiFi or Tether Apps ?Many Thanks
Asked by: Peter H.
As far as we know there is no recording limit, beyond the capacity of your memory card, with the Open Gate Anamorphic Mode. Audio should work just the same as well. As far as a memory card for 200mbps a V60 card is more than enough. A 512GB card like B&H # ANAV512SDV60 should work. We do not have any specific info on if Digital Focus Pull and IBIS work in 5K Open Gate Anamorphic Mode though. It is also unlikely you will be able to tether to see the image in the way you described. You will probably be limited to the on-board screen.
