  • Splash/Dust/Freezeproof Rugged Design:
  • The LUMIX GH5 is built like a tank to withstand even heavy use out in the field. It is freezeproof down to -10-degrees in addition to splash / dustproof construction thanks to weather sealing on every joint, dial, and button. A magnesium alloy full die-cast armor frame makes the body lightweight yet durable while bringing ruggedness to the compact size. This camera can go everywhere you can.
  • High Durability Shutter Unit:
  • The shutter unit is durable for approx. 200,000 times release*. Not only does it offer the highest shutter speed at max. 1/8000 to capture fast-moving 'spur-of-the-moment' shots but when used with fast aperture lenses - even outdoors - it gives impressive de-focus.
  • 20.3MP Pixels:
  • The LUMIX GH5 packs a real punch with its high performance 20.3MP Digital Live MOS sensor to achieve incredible picture. Together with the removal of the low-pass filter from the sensor, you can confidently capture sharp images with a high dynamic range and artefact free.
  • Venus Engine Processor:
  • The marriage of an advanced Digital Live MOS sensor with the beautiful new Venus Engine 10 produces extraordinary color detail and natural texture expression. Multipixel Luminance Generation and Intelligent Detail Processing render intense brightness and contrast.
  • 4K 60p/50p Video:
  • The LUMIX GH5 records silky smooth 4K 60p/50p (QFHD 4K: 3840 x 2160 / MOV or MP4) video. Faster frame rates mean excellent motion compensation plus you can slow down footage inside your video editing timeline without losing detail. You also achieve perfect panning control and a suppression of the rolling shutter effect as seen in lesser frame rates.
  • High-resolution images and perfect focal length can also be achieved as the LUMIX GH5 features pixel for pixel, no sensor cropping recording. There's also no recording duration limit so you can go beyond 30 minutes in all record settings.
  • 4:2:2 10-bit Internal Recording:
  • The LUMIX GH5 brings game changing internal 4:2:2 10-bit 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. The power of having film creation capabilities inside the camera sets a new precedent in guerilla style filmmaking. And you can record 4:2:2 10-bit to SD card whilst simultaneously feeding the live signal thru a full-size HDMI port connected to an external monitor or recorder. 4:2:2 10-bit recording enables faithful color and grading fidelity with over a billion colors and four times the tonality of 8-bit to match professional intent.
  • Control zings with rich colors from dark to bright shades and high-precision Multi Process NR makes your images pop even at high ISO sensitivity settings. Video users will be impressed with the improved performance in perceptual dynamic range at high ISO sensitivity settings.
  • VFR (Variable Frame Rate):
  • The VFR lets you record videos with dramatic slow motion or unique quick motion in 4K (60fps max. 2.5x slower) or Full HD (180fps max. 7.5x slower) quality, such as 180 fps / 7.5x*.
  • * In full HD, 24p playback.
  • Rack Focus Transition:
  • The Focus Transition function automatically shifts the focus point at a constant speed for precise in-focus to out-focus points - for example background to foreground - to give you an impressive 'rack focus' motion picture effect.
  • Live Output & Full Size HDMI:
  • The LUMIX GH5 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 Type A), 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 Pro Res).
  • 6K 30fps / 4K 60 fps: PHOTO Burst:
  • Shoot with unlimited burst, then choose and extract the exact frames you want to keep. The new 6K PHOTO* mode at 30fps allows you to capture the perfect moments at a stunning 18-megapixel high-resolution. The Ultra-high-speed 4K PHOTO mode at 60fps freezes even faster motion which is simply not possible in conventional DSLR cameras. The LUMIX GH5 truly does make moments unmissable.
  • * 6K PHOTO is a high speed burst shooting function that cuts a still image out of a 4:3 or 3:2 video footage with approx.18-megapixel (approx. 6000 x 3000 effective pixel count) that the 6K image manages.
  • Post Focus - Shoot now, Focus Later:
  • This fantastic Post Focus function gives you the power to focus after you've taken the shot! Simply capture the scene, review the image and touch the part of the photo you'd like pin sharp. Set and save. It's simple, stunning and all this advanced processing happens inside the camera.
  • Focus Stacking - Adjust The Focus Area After Shooting:
  • The Focus Stacking function enables you to adjust the focus area after shooting by blending multiple images taken at different focus distances to create an amazing image depth of field. You can make your images with exactly the kind of de-focus you want or pan-focus the image by simply selecting the focus area after shooting. This is brilliantly useful when shooting with fast apertures, close ups or macro photography.
  • DFD Ultra Fast Motion: Detection & Focus:
  • Panasonic's innovative DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology is constantly evolving and its just got even better. DFD allows the LUMIX GH5 to calculate focal lens movement by comparing depth of field values of two images at incredibly high speed. By combining the AF drive with a maximum read speed of 480 fps, the LUMIX GH5 can achieve ultra-high-speed Auto Focus in up to 0.05 seconds* and 9 fps burst shooting with AFC (** 12 fps burst shooting with AFS). A newly adopted motion detector accurately tracks fast moving subjects, and enables smooth 4K PHOTO/VIDEO & 6K PHOTO recording.
  • ** In AFS, at wide-end with H-ES12060
  • 225 Focus Points Plus: Selective AF:
  • A Joystick Controller on the back of the LUMIX GH5 is used to smoothly and intuitively select focus blocks inside the focusing area overlay.
  • 225-Area AF
  • The focus detect area is massively increased from 49 (LUMIX GH4) to 225 points for more flexible composition.
  • Custom Multi AF
  • The Custom Multi AF mode allows you to freely select an array of blocks inside the 225 focusing area.
  • AF Zone Selectable:
  • The focus area group size and position can be customized for Multi AF / Custom Multi AF
  • AF Customize:
  • With more customized AF settings, it is now possible to adjust AF directionality depending on the shooting scene.
  • Joystick Control:
  • The LUMIX GH5 offers you more intuitive control with the addition of a joystick over the conventional front /rear dials operation. A dedicated button allows direct reach to exposure compensation, white balance adjustment or ISO setting and a maximum of 5 settings can be assigned to the Fn buttons. All these components are designed to be operated easily and without taking your eyes away from the viewfinder.
  • 5-Axis Dual I.S. Eliminates Blur:
  • 5-axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabiliser) 2* intelligent compensation enables up to 5-stops of slower shutter speeds even through telephoto lenses. The LUMIX GH5 nearly eliminates shake in both body and lens from wide-angle to tele-end**. It also works in both photo and video recording, including 4K video. The astonishing power of the 5-axis Body I.S. corrects shake for all lenses, including classic lenses not equipped with O.I.S.
  • * 5-axis Dual I.S. 2 works when attaching the lens that are compatible with it. Firmware update of the lens is also required.
  • Professional Versatility:
  • A plethora of video formats and bit rates prepare the LUMIX GH5 for use in a wide range of professional applications such as web, TV, DVD/Blu Ray and digital cinema production. You can select from four recording formats such as AVCHD and MP4 for playback ease, or MP4 (LPCM) and MOV for professional editing ease
  • The LUMIX GH5 is worldwide compatible as the system frequency can be selected from 59.94 Hz (NTSC), 50.00 Hz (PAL), or 24.00 Hz (CINEMA).
  • Dual SD Card Slots:
  • Dual SD card slots increase recording capacity and file arrangement efficiency. The dual SD card slots allow you to record in relay, backup, and simultaneous modes. Relay allows you to swap a full card out for an empty card so you can record virtually endlessly. The backup mode allows you to record continuously on one card, while you start and stop recording on the other card. Simultaneous record duplicates your recording on both cards.
  • Large OLED LVF (3,680k-dot):
  • The high-resolution 3,680k-dot OLED Live View Finder matches up to exactly how you intended to see the image even under direct sunlight. A high 0.76x magnification (35mm camera equivalent) makes it easy to see image detail, your settings and icons, and, the long eye point distance of 21mm is excellent for people who wear glasses.
  • Bluetooth 4.2 & Wi-Fi 5GHz:
  • The Bluetooth 4.2 (Low Energy) enables full-time connection between camera and smartphone with low energy consumption. After shooting, it automatically switches to Wi-Fi connection, transferring data to your smartphone. The Wi-Fi 5GHz (IEEE802.11ac) is incredibly fast. You can use Panasonic's Lumix Image App for Android / iOS to control shutter and other settings, plus, video record Start / Stop without physically touching the camera!
  • Other Features:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Future is Bright! Overall great build quality with well thought out button placement and irreplaceable swivle screen. I moved from my traditional DSLR and I can definitely feel the weight difference. I also got the optional battery grip and can just go on shooting for days on end. Panasonic have a really awesome, reliable, and quality camera here. If this is the future, the future is bright.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal hybrid with advanced features! I’ve been using Panasonic micro four thirds cameras since late 2014. Initially I got into the system strictly for 4K video shooting on the GH4. We’ve since moved most of our event photography to micro four thirds because with fast primes these are great hybrid cameras for both photo and video. The GH5 specifically has a host of hybrid features that I consider advanced: excellent in body image stabilization that is essential for stills and fantastic for video. The ability to combine Dual I.S. with selected Panasonic lenses has eliminated my need for a gimbal. Other advanced features such as shutter angle for video and synchro scan (ability to change shutter angle by one degree at a time) has saved video shoots due to mixed lighting. These are features you do not find in other hybrids, Olympus included. Only on cinema cameras do you find these features. The 60p 4K is smooth, 10 bit is a necessity for pro video shooters. You can really push the codec on the GH5, video shooters will not be disappointed. Regarding light performance; micro four thirds cameras simply do not have a large enough sensor to gather significant light for shooting above 3200 ISO with usable results. If high ISO performance is a necessity, this is not your camera. Video and stills alike up to 1600 ISO are great for professional applications. Invest in fast lenses, f2.8 is common but is not fast enough for many applications, I recommend purchasing the Olympus 12mm f2.0, the Panasonic 25mm f1.7 and the Olympus 75mm f1.8 for fast primes. There are faster, more expensive primes but the above mentioned lenses are excellent for most applications. Note that Olympus micro four thirds lenses and Panasonic are interchangeable. Regarding sensor size; there is a lot of misinformation regarding the micro four thirds sensor. Lenses for this system by Panasonic and Olympus are designed to be sharp wide open with high image quality and excellent resolving power. With an f2.8 wide open, you will get attractive depth of field effects with good bokeh. Faster primes produce more depth of field and increased bokeh effects. The focal length is multiplied by the crop (2x) however in my experience, the f2.8; f1.8; etc. primes have all produced portrait and cinematic lens effects that are very pleasing. The upgraded pixel density on the GH5 was not necessary in my opinion as the 16 megapixel sensor from the GH4 produced great stills! I have travelled the world with this camera, it has held up well and the weather sealing has been a lifesaver, filming in the freezing cold, blowing snow of the arctic circle down to the humid July summer on a lake in Florida, this camera just keeps on performing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hi Panasonic. Not so nice to meet you I Bought this camera brand new on May 23rd 2018. Dint unbox it until the weekend and when i was going out to shoot on my day off on May 29th, i was super impressed with the photo and video quality. Took about 50 photos and switched off the camera. Switched it back on and took a photo; the screen had super weird banding. Switched the dial to video and the screen was flashing sporadically like a christmasy tree. Long story short the camera is in Mississauga having its sensor replaced. Yes its under warrantee but i would expect better from a $2400 camera.
