Photokina: Panasonic gives sneak peek of Lumix GH5
In the lead-up to Photokina, Panasonic has released details of the successor to its popular Lumix GH4, the GH5, which the manufacturer says records smooth, high-precision 4K 60p/50p or 4:2:2 10-bit 4K 30p video.
The new GH5 also features "6K PHOTO" which allows users to extract still images of around 18mb in size from ultra high-quality video with claimed approximate pixel count nine times that of Full HD.
Panasonic says by advancing its technologies such as digital signal processing and heat dissipation has allowed the new LUMIX GH5 to record 4K 60p/50p or 4:2:2 10-bit 4K 30p video recording for the first time in a digital mirrorless camera.
In the LUMIX GH5, the conventional "4K PHOTO" function has been advanced to form "6K PHOTO" while 4K images of approx. 8mb can be captured at 60 fps.
The LUMIX GH5 is set to go on show at Photokina 2016, which will be held at Koelnmesse, Germany, through 20-25 September.
Release of Panasonic's latest camera is expected to be worldwide in early 2017.
