Here at Gaming Central, we’re always talking about the quality of graphics in a game, so when Panasonic sent us their new Lumix GH5, we quickly began testing out the quality of the pictures and videos captured by the camera. Here are five reasons why the Panasonic Lumix GH5 should be your next camera.
4k at 60fps
A first for mirrorless cameras, the GH4 was known for being the first mirrorless camera to shoot video in 4k but the GH5 took it to a whole another level by enabling users to capture footage at 4k at 60 frames per second. Adding these faster frame rates, the user no longer has to sacrifice the resolution to get the best looking slow motion footage.
Dual Image Stabilization 2
It’s difficult to get smooth stable footage when shooting handheld, but with Panasonic’s 5 axis in-body image stabilization in the GH5, getting smooth footage is super easy. The camera can also leverage stabilized lenses, Panasonic calls this feature the Dual Image Stabilization 2.
The New 20MP Micro Four Thirds Sensor
Like every DSLR that is released these days, the Panasonic Lumix GH5 developed the new 20MP Micro Four Thirds Sensor. Combined with upgraded digital signal processing and heat dissipation, the result leaves the user with improved image quality, low-light performance and can last longer when shooting video.
Built-in Focus Pulling
The GH5’s Focus Transition feature allows the user to pull focus between up to three different pre-configured areas in frame with the touch of an on-screen button. If you have an auto focus-enabled lens like the Panasonic 12-35, this can be a great feature for pulling off cinematic moves.
6k PHOTO mode for Rapid Pictures
Building up to the familiar 4k PHOTO mode available in the previous GH series cameras, the GH5 introduces the 6k PHOTO mode which doubles resolution captured to 18MP or about 6000 x 3000. This means the user won’t have to sacrifice resolution to capture super-fast stills.
