Product Description

Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S Digital Camera Body

Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S Digital Camera Body

The Panasonic GH5S has reached extraordinary new heights in recording low-light, high-quality images that greatly expand the possibilities for video creators.

With 10.2MP Digital Live MOs Sensor with newly developed Dual Native ISO technologies combined with high-performance Venus Engine, the high sensitivity enhanced GH5S reveals subjects hidden in the dark.

Cinema 4K 60p/50p*, 4:2:2 10-bit video recording** and greater choice with multiple aspect ratios bring further enhancements to creative expression. The GH5S has been tuned specially to maximise post-production workflow efficiencies, including time code synchronisation to facilitate multi-camera shooting.

Panasonic GH5S- 10.2MP High-sensitivity Dual Native ISO Technology (ISO160-51200)

The Panasonic GH5S achieves the highest-ever sensitivity and best image quality in LUMIX history. This is realised 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.

Panasonic GH5S - Multi Aspect Ratio
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.

Panasonic GH5S - Suppressed Rolling Shutter
Rolling shutter distortion, compared to the Lumix GH5, is suppressed by approx. 1.3x with high readout speeds when recording video or using an electronic shutter.

Panasonic GH5S - Upgraded for Pro Video Creators

Panasonic GH5S - Cinema 4K 60p/50p with Unlimited Recording Time
The original Panasonic GH5S made it possible to record 4K/60p and 4K/50p video on a DLSM camera. Now, to greatly expand your creative possibilities, the Panasonic GH5S takes this even further and, for the first time ever**, includes 4,096x2,160 Cinema 4K 60p/50p* video recording.  Moreover, there is no limit*** to the recording time, not even when shooting FHD or 4K video.

*Cinema 4K (C4K: 4096x2160) resolution defined by Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI)

** As of Jan 8 2018 as a Digital Single Lens Mirrorless camera that complies with Cinema 4K (C4K: 4096x2160) resolution defined by Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI). According to a Panasonic study.

***Subject to SD card capacity and battery life.

Panasonic GH5S - 4:2:2 10bit* and 400Mbps All-Intra Recording
With internal recording of video in 4:2:2 10-bit* and an impressive 10.2 megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor backed by a Venus Engine that handles digital signals at ultra-high speed, this camera’s image quality per frame is dramatically improved with faithful colour reproduction and grading. High bit-rate recording at 400Mbps, optimal for nonlinear editing, is also made possible.

*4:2:0 8-bit in C4K 60p/50p and 4K 60p/50p recording on an SD memory card.

Panasonic GH5S - 4K HDR
The Panasonic GH5S complies with 4K HDR video. The HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a mode to reproduce both bright parts and dark parts of an image, making the subject appear just as the human eye perceives it. The camera records video with a designated gamma curve compatible with ITU-R BT.2100, and you can now choose Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) in Photo Style. A low bit-rate recording mode 4K HEVC for HLG is also available, which enables playback on AV equipment compatible with HEVC compression format, such as Panasonic 4K HDR TVs.

Panasonic GH5S - Pre-installed V-LogL
The V-LogL is pre-installed in Panasonic GH5S. Log recording offers exceptional flexibility as well as a wider dynamic range for colour grading in the post-production process, and V-LogL features log characteristics with 12 stops of dynamic range. By default, the Look Up Table (LUT) data is Rec.709 standard.

LUT Display function assist
LUT can also be custom set for VLT format in camera. Then, with the V-LogL View Assist function, you can preview what your footage may look like after it’s been post-processing.

Panasonic GH5S - Anamorphic Mode
Shooting with an anamorphic lens and using the fullest extent of the 4:3 sensor the camera’s built-in 4:3 anamorphic mode makes it possible to create video in the cinemascope format. Stunning cinemascope videos are created in post production using dedicated software but the de-squeezed cinemascope images can also be previewed while recording, or in playback, on the camera display.

Panasonic GH5S - VFR with FHD 240fps*
To elevate video expressivity even further, a variety of effects are available on the Panasonic GH5S. The VFR (Variable Frame Rate) lets users record overcranked/undercranked video in C4K/4K (60fps, maximum 2.5x slower**) and FHB (240fps, maximum 10x slower**). The minimum frame rate for quick motion effects video is 2fps.

*The degree of effect varies depending on the recording format and frequency, and angle of view narrows if you select a frame rate with a number of frames 204 or more

**In 24p playback.

Panasonic GH5S - Added Efficiencies for Professional Workflow

Panasonic GH5S - Time Code IN/OUT and Line Input with 3.5mm MIC Jack
The Panasonic GH5S is now fitted with a TC IN/OUT terminal. By setting up TC synchronisation (through the flash synchro terminal and bundles BNC converter cable with optional BNC cable), it is easy to carry out non-linear timeline editing of footage shot with multiple cameras. For more flexible video production, LINE input is supported by a 3.5mm mic jack to enable sound input from an external audio device.

Panasonic GH5S

- XLR Microphone Adapter (Optional)
When shooting video, this adaptor allows you to record high-grade stereo sound to the camera directly through a high-spec XLR microphone. High-res recording* (at 96kHz/24-bit) is also possible when shooting 4K video. Selecting between separate MIC/LINE/CONDENSER MICROPHONES is also possible using the input switches on the control panel.

*In MOV only.

Panasonic GH5S - Battery Grip (Optional)
By using two batteries, one in the camera and the other in the grip, the DMW-BGGH5 extends battery life for longer shooting times. Robust as well as spash-*/dust- and freeze-proof the grip is easy to grasp even when shooting vertically, complementing the Panasonic GH5S design.

*’Splash-proof’ 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-proof protection does not guarantee that damage will not occur if the camera is subjected to direct contact with water.

Panasonic GH5S - Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi 5GHz (IEEE802.11ac)*/2.4GHz (IEEE802.11b/g/n)
The Panasonic GH5S integrates Bluetooth 4.2 (Bluetooth low energy) and Wi-Fi connectivity for more flexible shooting, smoother remote control and faster image sharing with minimal power consumption. Connected to a smartphone or tablet, you can shoot, browse and share images remotely, as well as adding a GPS geotag. Furthermore, on a multiple GH5S camera shoot, your main camera settings can be transmitted wirelessly to other GH5S units. In addition to standard 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, this camera connects to tablets and other devices by the more secure, more stable and faster 5GHz (IEEE802.11ac)*.

*5GHz Wi-Fi is not available in some countries

Panasonic GH5S - Exceptional Expression and Preciseness

Panasonic GH5S - 14bit RAW
The superior sensor saves super-detailed RAW files in 14bit RAW data to give photographers a wider range of expressive options.

Panasonic GH5S - -5EV AF
The Panasonic GH5S realises -5EV luminance detection performance with Low Light AF. The Live View Boost function is also added so you can clearly monitor and compose your subject when shooting in dark situations. 20x Manual Focus Assist is also useful for night-sky photographer, making it possible to focus on a single star by enlarging it.

Panasonic GH5S - Reliability with Superior Usability

Panasonic GH5S - 0.76x 3,680k-dot OLED LVF
The LUMIX GH5S has a large LVF (Live View Finder) with a stunningly high magnification ratio of approx.. 1.52x/0.76x (35mm camera equivalent) and providing a smooth display at 120fps. The high-precision, high-speed OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) display features 3,680k-dot high resolution and a 100% field of view. With an eyepoint of approx. 21mm, the LVF offers high visibility with comfort for users wearing glasses. It is always sharp and clear from the centre all the way to the corners.

Panasonic GH5S - 3.2” Free-angle Tough Monitor
Adopting a static-type touch control system, the 3.2-inch free-angle rear monitor in 3:2 aspect with 1,620k-dot high resolution features an approx. 100% field of view. It uses a pixel structure of RGB and White to feature even higher visibility in sunny outdoor scenes. It tilts up and down by approx. 270-degrees to make shooting at either high or low angles even easier.

Panasonic GH5S - Splash-*/Dust- and Freeze-proof Mg Body
Tough enough to withstand even heavy field use, the main structure is composed of a magnesium alloy die-cast front and rear frame. Secure construction and a sealing for every joint, dial, and button make the Panasonic GH5S not only splash-* and dust-proof but also freeze-proof down to -10C (14F).
