Panasonic Lumix GH5 is is the new incarnation of the legendary and top-rated ILCs of this producer. Camera presented during Photokina 2016 fair finally had its premiere, during which more detailed data was presented.
The camera is equipped with a 20.3MP Live MOS image sensor without the dynamic low pass filter, which supports the new image processor Venus Engine that similarly to its predecessor, makes it possible to take photos with 200-25600 sensitivity and the possibility of extending iso to 100.
The new processor is also responsible for improving the camera's performance. GH5 takes photos with the maximum speed of 9 frames per second with the full support of autofocus and 12 frames per second in the single mode. The buffer can hold even 100 RAW images.

Panasonic Lumix GH5 is a bit bigger than its previous version and it's equipped with an electronic viewfinder with a 3.68MP resolution and 0.76× magnification. The rotating touch screen has also undergone some improvements. It's bigger (3.2 inch) and its definition is higher (1.62 Mp). Also, on the back of GH5, there's now a joystick controller that can be used to select the AF.

Probably, the most awaited solution in the new Panasonic is Dual I.S. 2 - a 5-axis inbody sensor stabilization and 2-axis stabilization in particular lenses. According to information provided by the producer, it can increase the exposure value even by 5EV. A precise gyro sensor in GH5 camera controls the Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and In Body Image Stabilization (BIS). It's done by the analysis of focus and the conditions for photographing.

Panasonic GH5 is equipped with phase detection autofocus supported by DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology. Thanks to Venus Engine image processor it's able to process digital signals with the speed up to 480fps. Also, GH5 uses a motion sensor that predicts the movements of the photographed object so there's a big chance that Panasonic GH5 will do better tracking moving objects that its older brother.

What's more, GH5 has an increased number of focus from 49 to 225 and we now have the possibility of adjusting the autofocus to the shooting mode.
However, to the fore come the filming possibilities. GH5 is the first mirrorless interchangeable lens camera on the market to offer recording a 4K video at the speed of 60 fps and 10 bit 4:2:2 All-Intra subsampling. What's most important, there's a full sensor readout feature thanks to which we won't have to worry about the cropping factor. We will be able to record in FHD 1080p with the speed up to 1800fps.

Finally we also get two SD (UHS-II) card inputs, and filmmakers will also enjoy a standard size HDMI port. The more advanced videomakers should be happy about the fact that you can also purchase a microphone adapter with two XML inputs and phantom power. The device will communicate with the body without using external cables. A dedicated grip for a body can also be purchased. The camera, as would be expected in the case of a flagship camera, is made entirely of magnesium and it's sealed. The camera will appear on the market at the end of March, and it will cost $1999 for a body.
