Panasonic India today launched its latest flagship model – LUMIX GH5 in the market. It is capable of recording smooth, high precision 4k 60p/50p video recording and 4:2:2 10-bit 4K 30p/25p internal video recording. The Panasonic GH5 is aimed at photography enthusiasts and professional photographers and videographers.
The LUMIX GH5 comes with a 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor without a low-pass filter and 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. It supports 6K PHOTO 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 has a focus area of 225 areas in addition to the conventional Face/Eye Recognition resulting in more precise focusing. It will be compatible with 400-Mbps 4:2:2 10-bit All-Intra video recording in 4K 30p/25p/24p and 200-Mbps All-Intra Full-HD in the second half of 2017. Blurring the lines between stills and video, the LUMIX GH5 camera gives high performance. It is 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 GH5 comes with a 2 SD Memory Card slot, compatible with the high-speed, high-capacity UHS-II. For connectivity, it includes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi options. The new LUMIX GH5 has a rugged magnesium alloy body with full die cast for the front and rear frame which is not only splashproof and dustproof but also freeze-proof down to -10 degrees. 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. It is available from Panasonic stores across the country.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. With this addition, we will not only make it the foremost choice for the professional videographer but will also appeal to a wider market of photography enthusiasts looking for a highly capable camera that can shoot great stills and movie footage.
