Panasonic India today announced the launch of its latest flagship model - LUMIX GH5 in the Indian market. Panasonic LUMIX GH5 is capable of recording high precision 4k 60p/50p video recording and 4:2:2 10-bit 4K 30p/25p internal video recording. Like its predecessor LUMIX GH4, the Panasonic GH5 is aimed at photography enthusiasts and professional photographers and videographers.
Blurring the lines between stills and video, the LUMIX GH5 camera is equipped with the VFR (Variable Frame Rate), the Panasonic GH5 allows the user to record over-cranked/under-cranked video in 4K (60 fps, maximum 2.5x slower) and Full HD (180 fps, maximum 7.5x slower).
The LUMIX GH5 upgrades to a 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor without low-pass filter which combines with the new Venus Engine. The Venus Engine further empowers DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology, making it capable of ultra-high-speed digital signal processing at a maximum of 480 fps.

Moreover, the focus areas are increased from 49 to 225 areas on the GH5 in addition to the conventional Face/Eye Recognition resulting in more precise focusing. It will be compatible with 400-Mbps 4:2:2 10-bit All-Intra video recording in 4K 30p/25p/24p and 200-Mbps All-Intra Full-HD in the second half of 2017.
When it comes to stills, the newly added 6K PHOTO makes it possible to capture photos at 30 fps by extracting the frame with the best timing out of the 6K burst file (in 4:3 or 3:2 aspect) to save as an approx. 18-megapixel equivalent high-resolution photo.
The GH5 is equipped with a double SD Memory Card slot, compatible with the high-speed, high-capacity UHS-II for the first time ever in a LUMIX digital camera, as claimed by the company. Users can choose the recording method from Relay Recording, Backup Recording or Allocation Recording. For connectivity, it includes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Offering both a solid exterior design, the new LUMIX GH5 has a rugged magnesium alloy body with full die cast for the front and rear frame which is not only splash-proof and dustproof but also freeze-proof down to -10 degrees.
The photography enthusiasts and professionals can grab their unit from Panasonic stores across the country. The DC-GH5 Body is priced at Rs 1,43,990 and DC-GH5 Kit with 12-60 mm F2.8-4.0 will be available for Rs 1,88,990.
