Panasonic Lumix GH5 Teases, the World’s First 4K 60P Mirrorless Cam

September 20, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Panasonic’s DMC-GH4 was a real game changer for the company, for it was the first from the Japanese manufacturer that was powered with 4K 30p recording prowess. Now, the company is upping the game again with its successor; the Lumix GH5.

Along with the announcement of the Lumix G85, Lumix LX 10, and Lumix FZ2500 cameras, Panasonic at the Photokina 2016 in Koelnmesse, Germany, has also thrown light over the new Lumix GH5, the first from Panasonic and also in the mirrorless camera category that features 4K video capture at 60p.

Alongside, it will also pack the ability to capture still photos at 6K resolution, which relates to nearly nine times of what we get in a Full HD capture. Users will be able to capture 18MP still images from videos that are recorded at 4K resolution and at 30 frames per second.


The upcoming Lumix G85, which is currently under development, will also be able to handle 4:2:2 10-bit 4K video, which is also a first among the category of the device.

As of now, the remaining details of the new entry are yet to be revealed. Panasonic will be showcasing the device throughout the Photokina event this week, where they will also be having the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit F2.8 4.0 Lens series displayed alongside.

The release of the new Lumix GH5 is expected to happen at some point in early 2017. Panasonic has also not given any info about the pricing of the device. But if it could keep it matched with the $800 price range of its predecessor, Panasonic could really lure the high-res fans given that the spec offered by the GH5 can only be associated with much expensive camcorders at this point.
