Key Features:

  • 3,68M Dot, Large OLED LVF
    A super high-resolution 3,680k-dot OLED LVF (Live View Finder) provides 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.

  • Highest Video Quality
    Designed exclusively for the LUMIX GH5S, the new 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 & 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.

  • 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.

  • C4K/4K 60p/50p Video
    The LUMIX GH5s takes professional shooting performance to another level with high-precision, silky smooth 4K 60p/50p (Cinema 4K: 4096x2160 / QFHD 4K: 3840x2160 / MOV or MP4) video recording capability.Faster frame rates mean excellent motion compensation plus you can slow down footage inside your video editing timeline without losing detail. You also achieve perfect panning control and a suppression of the rolling shutter effect as seen in lesser frame rates. Perfect focal length can also be achieved as the LUMIX GH5s features a multiple aspect ratio recording. There's also no recording duration limit so you can go beyond 30 min. in all record settings.

  • Splash/Dust/Freezeproof Rugged Design
    The LUMIX GH5s is built like a tank to withstand heavy use. It is freezeproof down to -10F degrees in addition to splash / dustproof construction thanks to weather sealing on every joint, dial, and button. A magnesium alloy full-diecast armour frame makes the body lightweight yet durable while bringing ruggedness to the compact size. This camera can go everywhere you can.

  • Pre-installed V-LogL Video Recording Function
    neutral or flat logarithmic ("log") gamma curve captures wide dynamic range pictures ideal for color grading. Plus, a LUT Display function assists your exposure and helps to show directorial intent.

  • Hybrid Log Gamma for 4K HDR Video
    HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a mode to reproduces both the bright parts and dark parts of an image, making it look just as the human eyes sees it. You can choose Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) in Photo Style.

  • Ultrahigh-speed Focusing and 14-bit RAW Burst
    Capture even the fastest moving action thanks to DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology. It instantly calculates the distance to the subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels, and achieves ultrahigh-speed AF and 8-fps burst shooting with AFC. 12-fps burst shooting with AFS is also available. The LUMIX GH5s also lets you select the 14-bit RAW file format. Equipped with rich color and smooth gradation from approximately 64 times the color information of 12-bit RAW, maximum 7-fps AFC / 11-fps AFS burst shooting greatly expands your range of creativity.

  • TC IN/OUT Terminal
    The time code can be synchronized with an external device by using the bundled BNC conversion cable. This enables more precise image production for movies and documentaries, where multiple cameras are essential.

  • Precise Focusing Even in -5EV Situations
    Renowned LUMIX low-light AF performance has evolved to enable shooting down to the level of -5EV. This allows you to focus precisely even under the lighting of a starlit sky, ideal for shooting nighttime nature scenes and documentaries.

  • Video Functionality Features:
    Anamorphic Video Mode: Ideal for recording with 'squeezed' cinematic filmmaking lenses. In anamorphic desqueeze display mode, images are displayed in a cinemascope aspect ratio. Wave Form Monitor & Vectorscope: To check brightness, luminance or chroma color balance. Like709 Gamma (ITU-R BT.709) & Knee Control: Broadcast flexibility for post-production. Luminance Level 64-1023 / 64-940 / 0-1023 (10-bit): For choice of video luma level.
