Recently Panasonic launched its latest model in its already famous GH series – “GH5”. Panasonic has always been known as the leader in innovative technology, and this new model will be a great success because of its unique features in the Indian market.
Panasonic LUMIX GH5 is capable of recording smooth, high precision 4k 60p/50p video recording and 4:2:2 10-bit 4K 30p/25p internal video recording for the first time in the world. Like its predecessor LUMIX GH4, the Panasonic GH5 is aimed at photography enthusiasts and professional photographers and videographers.
Equipped with the VFR (Variable Frame Rate), the Panasonic GH5 allows the user to record over-cranked/under-cranked video in 4K (60 fps, maximum 2.5x slower) and Full HD (180 fps, maximum 7.5x slower), making it a treat for the videographers.
The LUMIX GH5 upgrades to a 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor without low-pass filter which combines with the new Venus Engine, achieving highest-ever picture quality in resolution, color reproduction and noise reduction. The Venus Engine further empowers DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology, making it capable of ultra-high-speed digital signal processing at a maximum of 480 fps. Moreover, the focus areas are increased from 49 to 225 areas on the GH5 in addition to the conventional Face/Eye Recognition resulting in more precise focusing
When it comes to stills, the newly added 6K PHOTO 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 4:3 or 3:2 aspect) to save as an approx. 18-megapixel equivalent high-resolution photo.
The GH5 is equipped with a double SD Memory Card slot, compatible with the high-speed, high-capacity UHS-II for the first time ever in a LUMIX digital camera. Users can flexibly choose the recording method from Relay Recording, Backup Recording or Allocation Recording. For connectivity, it includes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity to offer a more flexible shooting experience and instant image sharing with easy operation.
Offering both a solid exterior design, the new LUMIX GH5 has a rugged magnesium alloy body with full die cast for the front and rear frame which is not only splash-proof and dustproof but also freeze-proof down to -10 degrees.
The photography enthusiasts and professionals can grab their unit from Panasonic stores across the country. The DC-GH5 Body is priced at INR 1,43,990 and DC-GH5 Kit with 12-60 mm F2.8-4.0 will be available for INR 1,88,990.
Mr. Manish Sharma, President and CEO, Panasonic India and South Asia, said, “This year marks a major milestone for our long-running LUMIX camera brand. The Panasonic LUMIX GH5 is designed with the needs and demands of the professional photographers and videographers in mind. The flagship Panasonic GH5 follows in the footsteps of 2014’s well-received LUMIX GH4 and provides World’s first of its kind technology and speed.”
Mr. Gaurav Ghavri, Product Head- Digital Imaging, Panasonic India, said, “LUMIX GH5 is equipped with advanced video capabilities and enhancements to Panasonic’s already fast and accurate autofocus system. It is the world’s first Hybrid Digital camera to offer 4K video recording at 60 frames per second (fps) and 6K photos at 30 fps. Boasting 6K Photo modem, it will allow the photographer to take a video at 4K, select their favourite shot from the video and be able to convert that into an 18-megapixel image.”
