Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S Mirrorless Camera Body
LUMIX has reached extraordinary new heights in recording low-light, high-quality images that greatly expand the possibilities for video creators. Supporting video recording in the highest 4K quality without cropping, and a high sensitivity 10.2MP MOS sensor, the GH5S produces simply stunning films, whenever inspiration strikes.
The LUMIX GH5S achieves the highest-ever sensitivity and best image quality in LUMIX history. This is realized by combining the newly developed high sensitivity sensor with Dual Native ISO technology and the latest Venus Engine. Dual Native ISO is a revolutionary technology featured on Panasonic’s professional video cameras and offers the advantages of very high sensitivity while keeping noise levels low.
Usually, with a conventional single native ISO, noise levels rise when sensitivity is increased. However, the newly developed image sensor implements dual circuits able to switch to high native sensitivity before gain processing. This means you can achieve beautiful footage with suppressed noise in low-lit situations
The LUMIX GH5S sensor handles 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 truly stunning image expression!
The LUMIX GH5S brings game changing internal 4:2:2 10-bit C4K/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 filmmaking. 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.
The LUMIX GH5S is capable of 4:2:2 10-bit real-time image output to an external monitor or recorder via an optional HDMI cable (full size TypeA), while simultaneously providing an internal 4:2:2 10-bit recording*. It is suitable for professional video making that requires
accurate monitoring of the imagery or high quality recording to external codec devices (such as ProRes). A cable lock holder for the HDMI cable is bundled with the LUMIX GH5S to prevent unplugging problems on location.
The marriage of a new Digital Live MOS sensor with the beautiful Venus Engine reproduces extraordinary colour detail and natural texture expression. Multipixel Luminance Generation and Intelligent Detail Processing render intense brightness and contrast. The Three-Dimensional Colour Control zings with rich colours from dark to bright shades and high-precision Multi Process NR makes your images pop even at high ISO sensitivity settings.
The original LUMIX GH5 made it possible to record 4K 60p/50p video on a DLSM camera. Now, to greatly extend your creative possibilities, the LUMIX GH5S takes this even further and, for the first time ever**, includes Cinema 4K (C4K: 4096 x 2160) 60p/50p* video recording . Moreover, there is no limit*** to the recording time, not even when shooting FHD or 4K video. (Subject to SD card capacity and battery life)
To elevate video expressivity even further, a variety of effects are available on the LUMIX GH5S. The VFR lets you record overcranked / undercranked videos in C4K/4K (60-fps maximum 2.5x slower*) or FHD (240-fps maximum 10x slower*) quality. The minimum frame rate for quick motion effects video is 2-fps
The LUMIX GH5S supports a wide range of professional applications, such as web, TV, DVD/Blu-ray and digital cinema production. It features a plethora of video formats and bitrates to record at up to 400Mbps (ALL-Intra) or 150Mbps (LongGOP (IPB Compression)). The system frequency can be selected from 59.94Hz (NTSC), 50.00Hz (PAL), or 24.00Hz (CINEMA). Operation is also enhanced by three video control panels Shutter Duration/ISO, Angle/ISO, or Shutter Duration/dB. This provides solid support for professional worldwide video production.
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.
In addition, the LUMIX GH5S lets you newly select the 14-bit RAW. Equipped with rich colour and smooth gradation from approximately 64 times the colour information of 12-bit RAW, maximum 7-fps (AFC) / 11-fps (AFS) burst shooting greatly expands your range of creativity.
LUMIX's renowned 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.
The LUMIX GH5S is built like a tank to withstand even
heavy use out in the field. It is freezeproof down to
-10-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.
The LUMIX GH5S is equipped with dual SD card slots for larger capacity recording and efficient file arrangement. Relay mode allows you to swap a full card out for an empty card so you can record virtually endlessly. Backup mode allows you to record continuously on one card, while you start and stop recording on the other card. Simultaneous record mode duplicates your recording on both cards. Both slots are compatible with high-speed, high-capacity UHS-II Video Speed Class 60 cards for high bitrate video recording.
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 (35mm camera equivalent) makes it easy to see image detail, and a smooth display at 120-fps and high-speed response with minimum time lag further advance visibility. Best of all, the OLED LVF ensures your pictures match up to exactly how you intended them.
A huge 3.2-inch LCD monitor with a resolution of 1,620k-dot approximately gives you a crisp live view and high visibility even in sunny shooting conditions. It adopts RGBW (Red, Green, Blue, White) pixel structure to feature even higher visibility in sunny outdoors. The tilt/swivel capability gives you the freedom to find unusual perspectives while maintaining easy operation and full image control. The monitor has Touch Focus control to allow instant focus by simply touching the subject on the screen. Plus, with Touch Shutter control you can point your finger at where you want the focus to be and it will release the shutter automatically.
The Bluetooth 4.2 (Low Energy) enables shutter release and video record Start / Stop without physically touching the camera. It also enables full-time connection between camera and smartphone with low energy consumption. After shooting, it automatically switches to Wi-Fi connection, transferring data to your smartphone. The Wi-Fi 5GHz (IEEE802.11ac) makes the transfers incredibly fast. You can use Panasonic's LUMIX Image App for Android / iOS to control shutter and other settings.
The LUMIX GH5S allows tethered shooting via USB with "LUMIX Tether" PC software. It enables camera control and shooting while checking the image on a large PC screen. Naturally, it supports both video and 4K PHOTO. This greatly assists professional workflows in commercial photoshoots at studios.
Shoot with extended burst, then choose and extract the exact frames you want to keep. The ultrahigh-speed 4K PHOTO mode at 60-fps with approximately 8 megapixels resolution freezes even faster motion which is simply not possible in conventional cameras. The LUMIX GH5S truly does make moments unmissable.
When shooting dark scenes like starry skies, Night Mode suppresses the stimulation of the eyes that are accustomed to the dark. The LVF and rear monitor can be set separately.
The display is brightened by lowering the frame rate and increasing the gain.
This lets you shoot while framing, even in extremely dark situations.
