Panasonic have yet once again revolutionazed the world of cinematography and modern digital image capture with the Panasonic LUMIX GH5

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH5 features a brand new 20.3 Megapixel Digital LiveMOS 4/3 type sensor, which is 25% more compared to the GH4, which had a 16 MP sensor. The GH5 is capable of capturing stunning images with incredible sharpness thanks to the omission of the OLPF (optiocal low-pass filter).

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 9 x 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 analysed 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 colours at its edges.

As a world's first in the mirrorless world, the GH5 is capable of capturing a true 4K at 24fps in 10bit 4:2:2 internally - a feature that is currently unique to this camera and not seen anywhere esle in a camera of this class. The GH5 is also capable of recording in 4K/50 and 60p being a true world camear. However it is worth bearing in mind that when you are shooting in UHD/50 and 60p the camera captures colour in 8bit 4:2:0.

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. In Full HD the camera can record slow motion up to 180fps.

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. In a future firmware update scheduled for this Summer, the GH5 will also be able to capture in 10bit 4:2:2 in 4K at 400 Mbps, while at launch the GH5 will be limited to 150Mbps in its highest video resolution.

For the photo enthusiasts, you'd be glad to know that the Panasonic LUMIX GH5 is able to capture 18 Megapixel images from a 6K photo stills capture as well as 8 MP stills from a 4K/60p PHOTO capture allowing you to always capture the right moment. The Dual SDXC UHS-II U3 compiant card slots allow for backup and/or relay recording giving you peace of mind.
