About the Panasonic Lumix GH5 GH5s
Launched in early 2017, the upgraded Panasonic Lumix GH5 Mirrorless Camera is an even more powerful tool for photographers and videographers to create professional-quality photos and videos.
With a resolution boost to a 20.3 megapixel micro Four Thirds optical MOS CCD sensor, the Panasonic Lumix GH5 produces RAW and JPEG photos at a burst rate of 11.9 frames per second for up to 65 frames. Action sports and surf photography is made easier with the 225-point autofocus system, enabling fast moving subjects to be tracked.
As with the GH4 previously, one of the most-touted features of the Panasonic Lumix GH5 is the ability to shoot full Ultra High Definition (UHD) 4K video – and the maximum frame rate on the GH5 has been boosted to an impressive 60 frames per second (fps). Full HD is also possible at 180 fps for super slow motion video – perfect for action cinematographers. Additionally, the Lumix GH5 features 5-axis photo / video dual stabilization for steadier shots. Coupled with compatible lenses, this feature can compensate for up to 5 stops of shutter speed.
With an ISO range of 100-25,600, the Panasonic Lumix GH5 is a capable of shooting even in low lighting and difficult lighting situations. With a maximum shutter speed of 1/8000th of a second, the GH5 can freeze the fastest action in sports photography. Built from a rugged magnesium alloy frame, the GH4 is also splash/dustproof for reliability in the field. The professional grade shutter is rated for up to 200,000 cycles.
Splash, Dust and Freeze-proof Design
The Panasonic Lumix GH5 is a camera that’s built just like a tank, capable of withstanding heavy uses in the field. The camera is freeze-proof up to ten degrees, aside from having a splash and dust free construction. Thanks to the camera’s weather sealing in every joint, button and dial. The die cast armor frame of the camera is made of magnesium alloy that makes the body lightweight and durable while offering ruggedness to a compact size. With these amazing features, the camera can be taken anywhere you want.

The Panasonic Lumix GH5 is capable of recording a silky smooth 4k 60p/50 video. Its faster frame rates means the camera has excellent motion compensation and you can slow down the footage inside your video editing timeline without having to lose the detail.
