Taking advantage of its high-speed, long-time burst shooting capability, spur-of-the-moment shots can be saved in beautiful photos with higher resolution that complies with larger-sized printing by substantially increasing the resolution from approx.8-megapixel (4K PHOTO) to approx.18-megapixel (6K PHOTO*5). Furthermore, 4K Photo is also upgraded to enable 60 fps high-speed capture in approx.8-megapixel equivalent resolution.

Panasonic’s LUMIX GH5 is designed to withstand heavy field use and is not only splash proof and dustproof, but also freezeproof down to -10 degrees Celsius. It also comes with a double SD Memory Card slot compatible with high-speed, high capacity UHS-II for the first time in LUMIX digital camera series.

The device also offers new and improved DMW-BGGH5 battery grip, and a plug-in type microphone adaptor to record high quality stereo sound.

In addition to the above, the new camera comprises of a host of practical features like dedicated microphone to monitor and cancel the noise caused by mechanical movements inside the camera and lens, a Focus Bracket and Aperture Bracket apart from the conventional Exposure Bracket, and a variety of shutter type and speed to choose from.
