Panasonic recently announced the successor to the successful GH4; the GH5 at CES 2017. The GH5 is their flagship mirrorless camera, and it has a flagship price to reflect that, as it’ll cost $2,000 for the base model. The camera has a 20.3-Megapixel Live MOS sensor with a no low-pass filter, a new Venus Engine Image processor, up to 25,600 ISO and in-body dual 5-axis image stabilization.
Like the GH4, the GH5 is expected to shine in video quality, as it now offers a 10-bit 60fps shooting mode at 4K resolution. There is also a 6K photo burst mode at 30fps. There is a 3.2-inch LCD screen, as well as a 3.6-million-dot OLED viewfinder, on top of Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity for remote connection and control.
According to Panasonic, all of the technology inside makes it the “world’s first Digital Lens System Mirrorless that meets professional quality standards.” Because of that, the camera does have the aforementioned price of $2,000 for the body only, which is about $300 more than its predecessor. Panasonic is planning to release the GH5 in late March.
