Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S Mirrorless Camera (Body Only)
4K Mirrorless ILC Camera Body with 10.2 Megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor
The GH5S has taken the features loved in the GH5 and refined them with pro video creators in mind, the result is a stunning camera capable of shooting 4K video at a price range that can't be beaten.
Newly Developed Sensor for Unprecedented Sensitivity Levels
10.2MP High Sensitivity Dual Native ISO Technology (ISO160-51200)
The LUMIX GH5S achieves the highest ever sensitivity and best image quality in LUMIX history. This is realized by combining the newly developed high sensitivity sensor with Dual Native ISO technology and the latest Venus Engine. Dual Native ISO is a s revolutionary technology featured on Panasonic's professional video cameras and offers the advantages of very high sensitivity while keeping noise levels low. Usually, with a conventional single native ISO, noise levels rise when sensitivity is increased. However, the newly developed image sensor implements dual circuits able to switch to high native sensitivity before gain processing. This means you can achieve beautiful footage with suppressed noise in low lit situations.
Upgraded for Pro Video Creators
Cinema 4K 60p/50p with Unlimited Recording Time
The original LUMIX GH5 made it possible to record 4k/60p and 4k/50p video on a DLSM camera. Now, to greatly extend your creative possibilities, the LUMIX GH5S takes this even further and for the first time ever, includes 4,096 x 2,160 Cinema 4K 60p/50p video recording. Moreover, there no limit to the recording time, not even when shooting FHD or 4K video.
4:2:2 10bit and 400Mbps All-Intra Recording
With internal recording of video in 4:2:2 10bit and an impressive 10.2 megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor backed by a Venus Engine that handles digital signals at ultra high speed, this camera's image quality per frame is dramatically improved with faithful colour reproduction and grading. High bit rate recording at 400Mbps, optimal for nonlinear editing, is also made possible.
The LUMIX GH5S complies with 4K HDR video. The HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a mode to reproduce both bright parts and dark parts of an image, making the subject appear just as the human eye perceives it. The camera records video with a designated gamma curve compatible with ITU-R BT.2100, and you can now choose Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) in Photo Style. A low bit-rate recording mode 4K HEVC for HLG is also available, which enables playback on AV equipment compatible with the HEVC compression format, such as Panasonic 4K HDR TVs.
Pre Installed V-LogL
The V-LogL is pre intalled in LUMIX GH5S. Log recording offers exceptional flexibility as well as a wider dynamic range for colour grading in the post production process and V-LogL features log characteristics with 12 stops of dynamic range. By default, the Look Up Table (LUT) data is Rec.709 standard. LUT can also be custom set for VLT format in camera. Then, with the V-LogL View Assist function, you can preview what your footage may look like after it's been post processing.
Shooting with an anamorphic lens and using the fullest extent of the 4:3 sensor the camera's built in 4:3 anamorphic mode makes it possible to create video in the cinemascope format. Stunning cinemascope videos are created in post production using dedicated software but the de-squeezed cinemascope images can also be previewed while recording, or in playback, on the camera display.
VFR with FHD 240fps
To elevate video expressivity even further, a variety of effects are available on the LUMIX GH5S. The VFR (Variable Frame Rate) lets users record overcranked / undercranked video C4K/4K (60fps, maximum 2.5x slower) and FHD (240fps, maximum 10x slower). The minimum frame rate for quick motion effects video is 2fps.
Reliablity with Superior Usability
The LUMIX GH5S has large LVF (Live View Finder) with a stunningly high magnification ratio of approx. 1.52s / 0.76x (35mm camera equivalent) and providing a smooth display at 120fps. The high precision, high speed OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) display features 3,680k-dot high resolution and a 100% field of view. With an eyepoint of approx. 21mm, the LVF offers high visibitlity with comfort for users wearing glasses. It is always sharp and clear from the center all the way to the corners.
3.2" Free-angle Touch Monitor
Adopting a static type touch control system, the 3.2 inch free-angle rear monitor in 3:2 aspect with 1,620k-dot high resolution features and approx. 100% field of view. It uses a pixel structure of RGB (Red / Green / Blue) and White to feature even higher visibility in sunny outdoor scenes. It tilts up and down by approx. 270 degrees to make shooting at either high or low angles even easier.
Splash / Dust- and Freeze-proof Mg Body
Tough enough to withstand even heavy field use, the main structure is composed of a magnesium alloy die cast front and rear frame. Secure construction and a sealing for every joint, dial and button make the LUMIX GH5S not only splash and dust-proof but also freeze-proof down to -10 degrees C (14 degrees F).
Durable Shutter Unit
The shutter unit is also durable for approx. 200,000 cycles. It also offers the highest shutter speed at max. 1/8000 sec. not only to capture spur of the moment, fast moving subjects but also for impressive defocusing effects, for example using a high speed lens with aperture fully open, even outdoors. An external flash can be synchronized with a max. 1/250 second shutter speed.
Added Efficiencies for Professional Workflow
Time Code IN/OUT and Line Input with 3.5mm MIC Jack
The LUMIX GH5S is now fitted with a TC IN/OUT terminal. By setting up TC synchronization (through the flash synchro terminal and bundled BNC cable), it is easy to carry out non-linear timeline editing of footage shot with multiple cameras. For more flexible video production, LINE input is supported by a 3.5mm mic jack to enable sound input from an external audio device.
XLR Microphone Adapter (Optional)
When shooting video, this adaptor allows you to record high grade stereo sound to the camera directly through a high spec XLR microphone. High-Res recording (at 96kHz/24bit) is also possible when shooting 4K video. Selecting between separate MIC / LINE / CONDENSER MICROPHONES is also possible using the input switches on the control panel.
Battery Grip (Optional)
By using two batteries, one in the camera and the other in the grip, the DMW-BGGH5 extends battery life for longer shooting times. Robust as well as splash / dust and freeze proof the grip is easy to grasp even when shooting vertically, complementing the LUMIX GH5S design.
Built In Bluetooth & WiFi
The LUMIX GH5S integrates Bluetooth 4.2 (Bluetooth Low Energy) and Wi-Fi connectivity for more flexible shooting, smoother remote control and faster image sharing with minimal power consumption. Connected to a smartphone or tablet, you can shoot, browse and share images remotely, as well as adding a GPS geotag. Furthermore, on a multiple GH5S camera shoot, your main camera settings can be transmitted wirelessly to other GH5S units. In addition to standard 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, this camera connects to tablets and other devices by the more secure, more stable and faster 5GHz(IEEE802.11ac).
