Panasonic LUMIX GH5s C4K Mirrorless Camera (Body Only)

Step up to the professional grade Panasonic LUMIX GH5s C4K Mirrorless Camera that offers over 29 LUMIX and LEICA compact lens options built on the next-generation (ILC) interchangeable lens camera standard [Micro Four Thirds] pioneered by Panasonic. Its mirrorless design enables the high performance, durability, mobility, and low light gathering needed for professional Cinematic and Anamorphic 4K video production.

The GH5s includes cutting-edge C4K: 60p50p 4:2:0 8-bit, 30p25p/24p 4:2:2 10-bit, 4K: 60p50p 4:2:0 8-bit, 30p/25p/24p 4:2:2 10-bit recording with unlimited recording. The GH5s comes pre-installed with HDR Hybrid Log Gamma and Panasonic’s V-LogL along with professional grade exposure tools like: Time Code sync, Waveform, Vector Scopes, and programmable Zebra patters. The LUMIX GH5s supports important recording features like 14bit RAW for stills, dual native IS0, Panasonic XLR mic Adaptor support, and the return of multi-aspect capture.

4:2:2 10-Bit Internal Recording

The LUMIX GH5s is capable of internal SD card capture of 4:2:2 10-bit C4K/4K video recording without the banding so prone to 8-bit. Plus simultaneously feed 4:2:2 10-bit real-time image output through its full-size HDMI port (Type A) to an external monitor or recorder. It is suitable for professional video making that requires accurate monitoring of the imagery or high quality recording to external codec devices (such as ProRes). 400Mbps (ALL-Intra) high bitrate recording mode is also available. A cable lock holder for the HDMI cable is bundled with the LUMIX GH5s to prevent cable disconnection problems.

Large OLED LVF

A super high-resolution 3,680k-dot OLED (Live View Finder) for improved visibility, even under direct sunlight. Plus a high 0.76x magnification (35mm camera equivalent) clarifies image detail, and a smooth display at 120-fps with minimal time lag.

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi

Panasonic's LUMIX Image App for Android / iOS through Bluetooth 4.2 (Low Energy) enables remote shutter release, and video record Start / Stop. Plus this full-time connection between the camera and mobile device consumes less energy. After shooting, it automatically switches to a fast Wi-Fi 5GHz (IEEE802.11ac) connection to transfer data to your mobile device of JPEG and RAW files.

High Video Quality

Designed exclusively for the LUMIX GH5S, the Digital Live MOS sensor offers 10.28 effective megapixels and a significantly higher photoreceptive surface per pixel, delivering an ultra-wide dynamic range. Dual Native ISO, a technology found in broadcast video cameras, enables the use of 400 and 2,500 ISO as base points to raise the highest normal ISO setting of 51,200, and an extension to 204,800 ISO. This technology provides ultra-sensitive video capture with impressively low noise.

LUMIX Tether Camera Control PC Software

The LUMIX GH5s allows tethered shooting via USB with LUMIX Tether PC software. It enables camera control and shooting while checking the image on a large PC screen. Plus it supports both video and 4K PHOTO, which greatly assists professional workflows in commercial photo shoots.

Multiple Aspect Ratios

The LUMIX GH5s sensor is capable of multiple aspect ratios; 4:3, 17:9, 16:9 and 3:2. Thanks to broad margins of effective pixels, focal length does not change in these aspect ratios. Available for still photography, 4K and C4K video, and in Anamorphic mode, this function allows you to fully leverage the angle of view of the lens for more creative options.
