After teasing it at Photokina last year, Panasonic has finally revealed all the details of its flagship Micro Four Thirds camera, the LUMIX DMC-GH5, the successor to the highly popular GH4.
The GH5 has a new 20 megapixel sensor that also lacks a low-pass filter for greater detail in images. The new Venus Engine also achieves improved colors, texture, and lower noise. The camera now supports ISO values up to 25,600. The GH5 uses Panasonic's excellent DFD or Depth from Defocus technology with 225 AF points, which works along with standard contrast detection autofocus for up to 2x faster focusing than the GH4.
The GH5 also includes 5-axis image stabilization that combines two-axis optical image stabilization in select Panasonic lenses and three-axis body image stabilization that allows up to 5 additional stops of shutter speed and reduced shake in videos.
The main highlight of the GH5 is the ability to capture 4K video in up to 60 frames per second. The camera also does this in 10-bit 4:2:2 for both, internal as well as external recording over HDMI. The result is what Panasonic calls broadcast-quality footage.
Some of the other features include a weather-proof magnesium alloy body, dual SD card slots, 3680k-dot OLED EVF, 3.2-inch articulating 1620k-dot LCD, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
The GH5 will be available in late March for $1999.99, body-only.
in fact no, as a professional on photography market, I can tellyou a6500 gives problems at the moment of converting or editing photos.
Ok so: a6500: bigger sensor, smaller, rotatable screen, faster focus?, $1400 body, lighter. gh5: better for video, flipping screen, dual sd, $2000 body, more lenses available, bigger evf, headset jack, slightly bigger screen, more pixels, bett...
is this camera better than A6500???
