Unlimited recording with C4K / 4K 60p / 50p resolution. Fascinating picture quality in low light conditions thanks to a new advanced sensor. And universal focal length due to the possibility of recording with different aspect ratios. The unprecedented video quality and the highest sensitivity in the entire history of LUMIX cameras will allow you to capture the whole world – and change it.
Absolute Sensitivity – Newest Sensor
The LUMIX GH5S camera has the highest photosensitivity and unprecedented image quality in the entire history of LUMIX. This was made possible thanks to the combination of a new highly sensitive sensor, Dual Native ISO technology (Dual Native ISO) and the most advanced Venus Engine processor. Dual Native ISO (Dual Native ISO) is a revolutionary technology that is used in professional Panasonic video cameras and allows you to work at incredibly high sensitivity settings with minimal noise. As a rule, when using standard single native ISO (single native ISO) technology, the noise level increases in proportion to the ISO values. However, our new sensor is built on the principle of double circuits, allowing you to switch to a higher base ISO before using a digital signal boost. Thanks to this, you can shoot in low light conditions, avoiding the appearance of strong noises.
Venus Engine Beauty processor
Thanks to the alliance of the high-tech digital sensor Live MOS and the new Venus Engine Beauty processor, the camera transmits unimaginable color nuances and natural textures. “Multi-pixel illumination generation” and “Intelligent detailed data processing” technologies allow creating an image with high brightness and contrast. Three-dimensional color management brings life to areas of deep and soft shadow, and the high-precision and multi-threaded noise reduction function of the NR maintains image clarity even at high ISO values.
Incredibly fast focusing and support for burst shooting 14-bit RAW images
Catch even the most fleeting events thanks to the DFD technology (depth out of defocus). It instantly calculates the distance to the subject, evaluating two images with different levels of sharpness, and provides ultra-fast autofocus and continuous shooting at 8 frames per second in AFC mode (continuous autofocus). It is also possible to shoot at 12 frames per second in AFS mode (point focusing). In addition, the camera LUMIX GH5S opens for you a new mode of shooting 14-bit RAW-frames. Due to the rich color range and smooth gradation, which retains approximately 64 times more color information, compared to a 12-bit RAW image, the maximum shooting speed is 7 fps (AFC) / 11 fps (AFS) burst mode will allow you to further expand your creative possibilities.
Accurate focusing even under underexposure in -5EV
The updated autofocus system of LUMIX cameras in low light conditions allows you to shoot when under-exposed to -5EV. This makes it possible to accurately focus even when illuminated from the starry sky, which is very useful when shooting night landscapes and documentaries.
Useful features for filming at night
The increase to support MF has been expanded to 20x. Possibilities for precise focusing on very small objects, such as stars.
Cinema 4K 60p / 50p mode with unlimited recording time
LUMIX GH5 is the ability to shoot video as 4K 60p / 50p. LUMIX GH5S will allow you to significantly expand your creative possibilities, being the first DLSM-camera with support for video shooting mode Cinema 4K (C4K: 4096 x 2160) 60p / 50p. In addition, it has no restrictions on the recording time, even when filming as FHD or 4K. The Cinema 4K resolution (C4K: 4096 x 2160) was determined by a consortium of world leading film studios Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI).
4: 2: 2 10-bit write to internal memory
The LUMIX GH5S has a revolutionary C4K / 4K video recording in 4: 2: 2 10-bit format. For example, a 10-bit recording will allow you to transfer all the nuances of the evening sky and sunset without the formation of bands (banding), which is typical of an 8-bit recording. All the power of professional filmmaking in one camera takes amateur cinema to a new level. And you can record 4: 2: 2 10-bit video directly to an SD memory card, while at the same time transmitting the signal through a full-sized HDMI connector to an external monitor or a recording device. Recording in 4: 2: 2 format 10-bit provides access to natural colors and authentic shades for the realization of your professional ideas and allows you to transfer more than a billion colors and a tonal range four times larger than 8-bit recording.
Slow Motion with maximum slowdown 10x – VFR (Variable Frame Rate)
The LUMIX GH5S camera supports a wide range of built-in processing effects that will help make your video more expressive. The VFR function will allow you to shoot video with a slowdown / acceleration as C4K / 4K (at a speed of 60 fps the maximum slowdown is 2.5x *) or FHD (at a speed of 240 fps the maximum slowdown is 10x). The minimum frame rate for slow-motion effects is 2 fps.
Do not miss your shot thanks to shooting 4K PHOTO 60 fps
Take an unlimited series of frames, and then choose exactly the pictures that you need. Super-high-speed 4K PHOTO mode with a shooting speed of 60 fps at a resolution of 8 megapixels stops even the fastest movement that cannot be caught with a regular camera. LUMIX GH5S really allows not to miss a single moment.
Output via HDMI connector in real time and simultaneous recording to the internal memory as 4: 2: 2 10-bit
The LUMIX GH5S camera is capable of outputting an image to an external monitor or recorder as 4: 2: 2 10-bit via an HDMI cable (full-size, TypeA), while recording into the internal memory as 4: 2: 2 10-bit *. Useful for professional video shooting, which requires precise image control or high-quality recording to external devices (for example, ProRes). The LUMIX GH5S camera kit includes an HDMI cable retainer, which allows you to avoid accidentally removing the cable during shooting.
Moisture / dust / frost resistant and robust design
The LUMIX GH5S is a real tank that can withstand harsh field conditions. Thanks to frost resistance of up to -10 degrees, as well as a moisture / dustproof construction, each of its connections, the wheel and the button are ready to withstand severe weather conditions. The reinforced cast magnesium frame makes the camera body light and durable, combining reliability and compact dimensions. This camera can handle everything you can handle.
Viewfinder OLED LVF 3680k points
The Live View OLED LVF viewfinder with an ultra-high resolution of 3680k points transmits a gorgeous picture and guarantees perfect framing even in direct sunlight. Thanks to the high zoom level of 0.76x (equivalent to a 35mm camera), it’s easier to see the details of the image, and a smooth display at a speed of 120 fps and high sensitivity with minimal latency make the picture just great. And most importantly, the OLED LVF viewfinder ensures that you are shooting exactly what you wanted.
Large high resolution LCD screen
Large 3.2-inch LCD screen with approx. 1620 thousand points provides a sharp image in Live View mode and excellent visibility even in sunny weather. It uses the RGBW (Red, Green, Blue, White) pixel structure, which allows you to further improve visibility in bright sun conditions. And the swivel / oblique design allows you to shoot from unusual angles, while maintaining full control over the image and settings. The screen supports touch control focus, which allows you to instantly focus with a simple touch in the desired area of the screen. In addition, thanks to the touch control of the shutter, you can use your finger to select the focus area, and the shutter will be released automatically after you remove your finger.
Program for computers LUMIX Tether to control the camera
The LUMIX GH5S camera supports remote shooting via a USB cable using the LUMIX Tether software installed on your computer. It allows you to manage camera settings and shoot at the same time viewing the images on a large computer screen. It supports Video and 4K PHOTO modes. It greatly facilitates the work of professional photographers during commercial filming in the studio.
