Rental ID: PANASONIC_LUMIX_GH5_HIRE
The new Lumix DMC-GH5 or just GH5 for short is the new camera from Panasonic. Panasonic have upgraded, redesigned and beefed-up their new Lumix body, here is an overview of the changes:
At the heart of the GH5 is a new 20.3 Megapixel sensor with newly developed Venus Engine CPU, which offers dramatically improved processing times over the GH4. This new CPU allows for 4K video up to 60fps, 10-bit 4:2:2 and full HD video up to 180 fps. Also 12 fps continuous stills shooting with ISO up to 25,600!
It is equipped with a 4/3” MFT (micro four thirds) sized sensor, 20.3MP, with a built-in 5-axis stabilisation, which can compensate for up to 5 stops of shutter speed.
The MFT 4/3” sensor is a great all-rounder with good low-light performance and shallow depth of field, but also small enough to be very light and compact, ideal for a DJI Ronin or MoVI stabiliser.
We supply the GH5 with a Metabones MFT 4/3” to Canon EF SpeedBooster S adapter, included free of charge. We can supply a PL mount adapter if required.
The Panasonic GH5 is very capable in the video department, the flagship feature being UHD 4K at up to 60 fps, this is very impressive for the price. Also capable of shooting 6K stills/photos with a 12 fps max frame rate, with mechanical shutter!
