At CES 2018, Panasonic has launched its Lumix GH5S Mirrorless Camera. It is a hybrid single lens mirrorless camera with an improved photo quality and stronger video capabilities. In addition, it is an upgrade over existing Lumix GH5. In contrast, the resolution has been halved from the 20.3MP GH5 and now it is 10.2MP. But wait how can this be an upgrade? The answer is: It now features a 10.2MP dual ISO sensor, which offers better low-light performance.
At the even of CES 2018, Panasonic Says:
“The LUMIX GH5S achieves highest-ever image sensitivity and video image quality in the history of LUMIX cameras, especially in low-light situations.”
“When shooting in dark environments, videographers can now focus on filming that perfect shot as they no longer need to worry about noise which often results from having to use higher ISOs.”
“The Dual Native ISO Technology with low range (400) and high range (2,500) suppresses noise to produce cleaner footage when taken in all light.”
It is just a tip of an iceberg, so now without any further delay let’s talk about camera features.
Panasonic Lumix GH5S Features:
Lumix GH5S has a unique body design that allows you to shoot for an unlimited time without any overheating. The display on the back is a 3.2-inch, 1.62-million-dot, 120fps free-angle touchscreen.
Inside the camera is a 10.2-megapixel Micro Four Thirds MOS sensor that can shoot 14-bit RAW photos at up to 10fps (12fps in 12-bit RAW). It can capture 10-bit 4:2:2 video at Cinema 4K resolution (2160×4096) 60fps, and can go up to 51,200 ISO native and 204,800 extended ISO. In addition, it features Multi-Aspect Ratio function which provides the same angle of view in 4:3, 17:9, 16:9, and 3:2 aspect ratios for photos and videos.
In HDR, it supports Long GOP, V-Log L Gamma, and HDR Hybrid Log Gamma. It can also give HDR output via the HDMI 2.1 port. On the focusing part, Lumix GH5S features DFD (Depth from Defocus) autofocus system. Resulting a speedy focusing in approximately 0.07s using 225 focus points. Focusing options include face-eye recognition, tracking AF, 1-area AF and pinpoint AF.
In addition, Lumix GH5S features a Variable Frame Rate (VFR) feature that lets you record over-cranked/under-cranked video in C4K/4K (60 fps, maximum 2.5x slower in 24p) and FHD (240 fps, maximum 10x slower in 24p).
There are also features like- Time Code IN/OUT for easy synchronization of multiple cameras, a 4K PHOTO mode that captures 60fps images at 8MP resolution, AF Point Scope, and a 20x magnification ratio in MF assist (for astrophotography).
The Lumix GH5S has the support of dual UHS-II SD memory card slots, USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2. It is also splash-proof, dustproof, and even freeze-proof (down to –10 degree Celsius).
Panasonic Lumix GH5S Price and Availability:
The Lumix GH5S starting price is $2,499 (roughly Rs. 1,58,600) for body-only. It is also worth mentioning that there is no in-body stabilization. So it is better to use lenses that come with optical stabilization. It will be available from February 2, 2018, in the US.
