Panasonic announces first box-shaped M43 cine camera: BGH1
Panasonic has announced the Lumix BGH1, the company's first compact cube-style mirrorless camera.
Inside is a 10.2 megapixel M43 sensor, capable of shooting 4:2:0 10-bit C4K/4K 60p or 4:2:2 10-bit All-I C4k/4K 30p. The sensor features Dual Native ISO technology and a maximum sensitivity of ISO 51,200, which sounds similar to the sensor in the Lumix GH5S.
Panasonic says they see the BGH1 as being particularly versatile - operation includes shooting mounted on drones, IP remote control, direct live streaming and more. The company also says the Lumix BGH1 has a new heat dispersion structure that will allow for unlimited recording.
Other features include dual UHS-II SD card slots, HDMI output (up to 4K 4:2:2 10-bit C4K/4K 60p), a 3.5mm in/out jack, USB-C 3.1, WiFi and Bluetooth.
The BGH1 is priced at $3099 RRP, and will be available in late November 2020 from all usual photographic specialists.
