    Comparison of the Specs: Panasonic Lumix GH5s vs. Panasonic Lumix GH5

      Gear

    Almost a year has passed since the premiere of Panasonic GH5. The new GH5s model is not a successor of the above-mentioned camera but its low light version. Panasonic, possibly due to technical reasons, but maybe more in order to protect a base position of the model, has removed crucial functions by adding additional functions. Below you can find a table with the comparison of the specifications of both cameras.

      Yesterday, Panasonic presented the G9 model – the camera which may become an interesting alternative for the Olympus system, particularly the OMD-EM1 Mark II model. In the table below you can find a comparison of specification of both models. However, it is worth remembering that the Olympus camera has been on the market for more than a year.

      The comparison of Panasonic G9 and the GH5 model can be found here.
