The Pursuit of Perfection
LUMIX GH5 is taking image and video quality to the next level, with the world's first 4K/60p recording* and a new 6K Photo function that makes sure you never miss the moment. LUMIX Ambassador Steven Clarey explores new possibilities of photography and videography with the LUMIX GH5, as he captures freesurfer Dion Agius in action in Mozambique.

20.3MP Pixel-Perfect Shooter
The LUMIX GH5 packs a real punch with its high performance Digital Live MOS sensor sporting a whopping 20.3 megapixels to achieve the ultimate picture quality in the history of LUMIX G digital cameras. Together with the removal of the low-pass filter from the sensor, you can confidently capture the sharpest ever imagery with high dynamic range and artifact free. The LUMIX GH5 is a camera of beauty created by you and crafted by Panasonic engineering.
Venus Engine Beauty
The marriage of an advanced Digital Live MOS sensor with the beautiful new Venus Engine 10 reproduces extraordinary colour detail and natural texture expression. Multipixel Luminance Generation and Intelligent Detail Processing renders intense brightness and contrast. The Three-Dimensional Colour Control with rich colours from dark to bright shades and high-precision Multi Process NR makes your images pop. Video users will be impressed with the improved performance in perceptual dynamic range at high ISO sensitivity settings.
Dual Image Stabilizer 2
Its difficult to handhold a camera at the best of times but don't fret, with the 5-axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) 2*, intelligent compensation comes to your aid. This is the equivalent to doubling (x5) of exposure duration meaning you can use a 5-stop slower shutter speed up to tele-end.
The LUMIX GH5 eliminates shake in both body and lens from wide-angle to tele-end**. It also works in both photo and video recording, including 4K video.
The astonishing power of the 5-axis Body I.S. corrects shake for all lenses, including classic lenses not equipped with O.I.S.
* 5-axis Dual I.S. 2 works when attaching a lens that are compatible with it. Firmware update of the lens is also required.
** Based on the CIPA standard [Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=50-140 mm (35 mm film camera equivalent f=100-280 mm), when H-FS14140 is used.]
World 1st* 4K 60p/50p Smooth Quality Video
The LUMIX GH5 takes professional shooting performance to another level with high-precision, silky smooth 4K 60p/50p (QFHD 4K: 3840 x 2160 / 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.
High-resolution images and perfect focal length can also be achieved as the LUMIX GH5 features pixel for pixel, no sensor cropping recording. There's also no recording duration limit so you can go beyond 30 minutes in all record settings.
* For a Digital Single Lens Mirrorless camera as of 4 January, 2017.
World 1st* 4:2:2 10-bit Internal Recording
The LUMIX GH5 brings game changing internal 4:2:2 10-bit 4K video recording. For example, 10-bit will render all the subtleties of graduated skies and sunsets without the banding so prone to 8-bit. The power of having film creation capabilities inside the camera sets a new precedent in guerilla style film-making. And you can record 4:2:2 10-bit to SD card whilst simultaneously feeding the live signal thru a full-size HDMI port** connected to an external monitor or recorder. 4:2:2 10-bit recording enables faithful colour and grading fidelity with over a billion colours and four times the tonality of 8-bit to match professional intent.
A mind-blowing 400 Mbps (ALL-Intra) high bitrate recording mode will be available by firmware update***.
* For an interchangeable lens system camera as of 4 January, 2017.
** 4K 4:2:2 10 bit 60p/50p video is output only.
*** Available Summer 2017.
Ultra Fast Motion Detection & Focus
Panasonic's innovative DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology is constantly evolving and its just got even better. DFD allows the LUMIX GH5 to calculate focal lens movement by comparing depth of field values of two images at incredibly high speed. By combining the AF drive with a maximum read speed of 480 fps, the LUMIX GH5 can achieve ultra-high-speed Auto Focus in up to 0.05 seconds and 9 fps burst shooting with AFC (* 12 fps burst shooting with AFS). A newly adopted motion detector accurately tracks fast moving subjects, and enables smooth 4K PHOTO/VIDEO & 6K PHOTO recording.
* In AFS, at wide-end with H-ES12060 (CIPA).
Never Miss a Shot with 6K / 4K Burst
Shoot with unlimited burst, then choose and extract the exact frames you want to keep. The new 6K PHOTO* mode at 30 fps allows you to capture perfect moments at a stunning 18-Mpx (approx) high-resolution. The Ultra-high-speed 4K PHOTO mode at 60 fps freezes even faster motion which is simply not possible in conventional cameras. The LUMIX GH5 truly does make moments unmissable.
* 6K PHOTO is a high speed burst shooting function that cuts a still image out of a 4:3 or 3:2 video footage with approx.18-Mpx (approx. 6000 x 3000 effective pixel count)
Rugged Design - Splash / Dust / Freeze resistant
The LUMIX GH5 is built like a tank to withstand even heavy use out in the field. It is freeze resistant down to -10-degrees, in addition, it has a splash / dust resistant construction thanks to weather sealing on every joint, dial, and button. A magnesium alloy full diecast armor frame makes the body lightweight yet durable while bringing ruggedness to the compact size. This camera can go everywhere you can.
* Splash Resistant is a term used to describe an extra level of protection this camera offers against exposure to a minimal amount of moisture, water or dust. Splash Resistant does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this camera is subjected to direct contact with water.
3,680K-dot, Large OLED LVF
A super high-resolution 3,680K-dot OLED LVF (Live View Finder) brings gorgeous visibility and makes for perfect framing even under direct sunlight. A high 0.76x magnification (35 mm camera equivalent) makes it easy-to-see image detail, your settings and icons, and, the long eye point distance of 21 mm is excellent for people who wear spectacles. Best of all, the OLED LVF ensures your pictures match up to exactly how you intended them.
