RRP £1,829 | You Save £560
Aimed at professional video creators, the Panansonic Lumix GH5S is the successor to Panasonic's best selling GH5 and it reaches incredible new heights in low-light recording. The GH5S combines a newly developed 10.2 megapixel high sensitivity sensor with Dual Native ISO technology and the latest Venus Engine to produce amazing results with suppressed noise in extremely low-lit situations. The Lumix GH5S extends your creative video shooting by including for the first time 4.096 x 2,160 Cinema 4K 60p/50p video recording, with no limit to the recording time. The GH5S has a large OLED Live View Finder with high magnification providing a smooth display at 120fps, along with a 1,620k-dot high-res 3.2-inch vari-angle touchscreen.
10.2 Megapixel high-sensitivity.
Duel Native ISO Technology
The LUMIX GH5S achieves the highest-ever sensitivity and best image quality in LUMIX history. This is realised by combining the newly developed high sensitivity sensor with Dual Native ISO technology and the latest Venus Engine. Dual Native ISO is a 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.
Cinema 4K 60p/50p with Unlimited Recording Time
The original LUMIX GH5 made it possible to record 4K 60p/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 Cinema 4K (C4K: 4096 x 2160) 60p/50p video recording . Moreover, there is no limit to the recording time, not even when shooting FHD or 4K video.
Multiple Aspect Ratios
The LUMIX GH5S sensor handles multiple aspect ratios; 4:3, 17:9, 16:9 and 3:2. Thanks to broad margins of effective pixels, focal length does not change in these aspect ratios. Available for still photography, 4K and C4K video, and in Anamorphic mode, this function allows you to fully leverage the angle of view of the lens for truly stunning image expression. Also, even while using a larger sensor, high readout speeds are achieved. Rolling shutter distortion, compared to the LUMIX GH5, is suppressed by approximately 1.3x with high readout speeds when recording video or using an electronic shutter.
Max. 10x slow motion video - Variable Frame Rate
A variety of effects are available on the GH5S. The Variable Frame Rate lets you record overcranked/undercranked videos in C4K/4K )60fps maximum 2.5x slower) or FHD (240fps maximum 10x slower) quality. The minimum frame rate for quick-motion effects video is 2fps.
10-bit Internal Recording
The LUMIX GH5S brings game changing internal 4:2:2 10-bit C4K/4K video recording. For example, 10-bit will render all the subtleties of graduated skies and sunsets without the banding so prone to 8-bit. And you can record 4:2:2 10-bit to SD card whilst simultaneously feeding the live signal through a full-size HDMI port connected to an external monitor or recorder. 4:2:2 10-bit recording enables faithful colour and grading fidelity with over a billion colours and four times the tonality of 8-bit to match professional intent.
10-bit HDMI Live Output and Simultaneous Internal Recording
The LUMIX GH5S is capable of 4:2:2 10-bit real-time image output to an external monitor or recorder via an optional HDMI cable (full size TypeA), while simultaneously providing an internal 4:2:2 10-bit recording. It is suitable for professional video making that requires accurate monitoring of the imagery or high quality recording to external codec devices (such as ProRes). A cable lock holder for the HDMI cable is bundled with the LUMIX GH5S to prevent unplugging problems on location.
TC IN/OUT Terminal
The time code can be synchronized with an external device by using the bundled BNC conversion cable. This enables easier non-linear timeline editing of footage shot with multiple cameras.
LINE Input Supported
LINE input is supported by a 3.5mm mic jack. This makes it possible to input sounds from an external audio device, for more efficient video production.
The GH5S is made from magnesium alloy with die-cast front and rear frames. It is splashproof, dust-proof as well as freezeproof to 14°F.
Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC and Bluetooth allows for wireless image sharing and remote camera control from smartphones and tablets. Bluetooth LE also enables a constant connection to your mobile device, allowing for functions such as geo location and automatic image transfer.
