Panasonic reveals the GH5: and it’s a stunner

The $2000 Panasonic GH5 is a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera with 4K 60p/50p recording, and 4:2:2 10-bit shooting in 4K at up to 30p. With an additional 6K Photo Mode, it looks like an incredibly powerful all-rounder. 

Panasonic describes its camera as a Hybrid. It's sweetest spot is where still and video photography intersect and anyone (like me!) who takes stills and video and who wants a small camera to take with them will gravitate towards the GH5. Interestingly, Panasonic sees the GH5 in a crossover position between the Cinema market (which calls for shallow depth of field, flexibility with lenses and 24p) and  Broadcast (which needs deep depth of field, zoom lenses and mobility). 

We’re looking at the main improvements over the GH4 in a companion piece: Where the Panasonic GH5 excels: in detail, but suffice to say that with a new sensor, beefed up autofocus, 5-axis stabilisation, 60p/50p 4K video, the ability to shoot 6K "video" at up to 30fps in order to extract 18MP stills, a whole host of new improvements to the Venus video processing engine and more, this is one highly impressive upgrade.

All the more so when you consider that it’s going to sell for a body only price of £1699, or £1899 with a 12-60mm lens and £2199 with a Leica version of the same. US pricing is $1998. Availability is currently listed as late March.
