The Panasonic Lumix GH5 is one of the most advanced mirrorless cameras available, bursting with features to match the creativity of the advanced-to-enthusiast photographer with an interest in producing videos.
Featuring a high-sensitivity 20.3-megapixel Live MOS Micro Four Thirds sensor and super fast 225-area Multi AF the GH5 offers a comprehensive package for covering a broad range of photographic subjects. Compatible with an extensive number of micro-four-thirds lenses, the GH5 is popular with people engaged in landscape photography, portraiture, music gigs and events, street photography, wildlife photography and action.
Using 5-axis Dual IS II and a large ISO sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600, the GH5 is a great camera for shooting in all lighting conditions, as well as for keeping the camera steady while shooting with telephoto zoom lenses. The camera’s image stabilisation can be bolstered further when used with compatible Lumix lenses, which offer an additional 2-axis (yaw and pitch) of stabilisation.
The GH5 uses a 10th generation Venus Engine, designed to produce high-quality images with natural colours and great detail. The camera is also capable of tackling fast-moving subjects, buffering full-resolution still images at an astonishing 12fps with single AF and 9fps with continuous AF. However, it goes further with its unique 6K and 4K photo modes. Utilising its video functionality, the GH5 can capture 18-megapixel and 8-megapixel JPEG images at 30 and 60fps respectively, meaning you should never miss the decisive moment when using the GH5.
Weather-sealed to handle splashes and dust, and made from a tough magnesium alloy frame, the GH5 is a camera that creatives can use with confidence in challenging conditions. It can also tolerate freezing temperatures as low as -10°C and is rated for a lifetime of 200,000 shutter releases, with a battery life of at least 380 shots.
The GH5’s tiltable 3.2-inch 1620k-dot LCD display offers a sharp display for composing images, with touch controls and an anti-reflective coating for easier operation under all conditions. It also features dual SD slots for expanding memory or autobackup while shooting.
For advanced photographers looking for DSLR quality and handling, the Panasonic Lumix GH5 is a comprehensive camera package in tough, portable body that offers full manual control and some revolutionary features.
Panasonic GH5 - Video recording and connectivity
The GH5 can deliver professional-quality video up to 4K 60p/50p internally, as well as industry standard 400Mbps 4:2:2 colour 10-bit Full HD. As well as stylised image profiles, it also features Cinelike D and Cinelike V gamma colour profiles, suited to high-end film production because it maximises the dynamic range of recorded footage.
Panasonic GH5 owners can also connect their cameras to Android and Apple iOS smart devices using Wi-Fi and NFC, for seamless photo sharing and wireless camera control.
