Introducing the LUMIX GH5S: Exceptional Mirrorless Videography and Photography, designed and developed for professional filmmakers

LAS VEGAS, NV 01/08/2018

  • •Introducing a newly developed 10.2MP High Sensitivity MOS sensor for enhanced image quality in low light: Allowing up to 51,200 ISO recording without extended ISO.
  • •Time Code IN/OUT for easy synchronization of multiple cameras and Dual Native ISO, providing low range (400) and high range (2,500) ISO environments.
  • •True "Multi-Aspect Ratio" Function in Both Photo and Video

Panasonic is proud to introduce the new hybrid Digital Single Lens Mirrorless Camera LUMIX GH5S with expanded video recording capability and enhanced image quality.  Designed and developed for professional filmmakers, the LUMIX GH5S achieves highest-ever image sensitivity and video image quality in the history of LUMIX cameras, especially in low-light situations.

Packed with big features to satisfy demanding photographers and videographers alike
The new 10.2-megapixel Digital MOS Sensor with Dual Native ISO Technology and Venus Engine 10 faithfully reproduce even dark parts of the image, allowing high ISO capture when the use of supplemental lighting may not be possible.  This sensor is a multi-aspect type with a sufficient margin for realizing the same angle of view in 4:3,17:9,16:9 and 3:2 aspect ratios.  The sensor also enables photo shooting in 14-bit RAW format, providing higher flexibility for professional RAW stills development workflows.  When shooting in dark environments, videographers can now focus on filming that perfect shot as they no longer need to worry about noise which often results from having to use higher ISOs.  The Dual Native ISO Technology suppresses noise to produce cleaner footage when taken in all light.  Both videographers and photographers can now enjoy the same diagonal field of view across all aspect ratios with the True "Multi-Aspect Ratio" Function.  This feature means you can easily swap between difference aspect ratios giving you the accuracy you want from your lenses, and making the process easier while producing and editing in post-production.  The LUMIX GH5S is compatible with Time Code IN and OUT, like the professional camcorders, which is easy to set using the flash sync terminal and bundled conversion cable for a standard BNC terminal.  This is especially important for "lip synchronization" when using multiple cameras.

The LUMIX GH5S can be used as Time Code generator for other GH5S cameras and professional camcorders.  The Time Code IN/OUT functionality makes a production teams job pain-free as it provides synchronization for both video and audio devices used on multi-cam productions.

In the US, the Panasonic LUMIX GH5s will be available from end of February 2 and will retail for $2,499 US (body only).  The Panasonic LUMIX DC-GH5S will be available at select Canadian retailers and on the Panasonic eStore in February with an MSRP of $3,399.99 CDN (body only).
