The NEW GH5S £2200

Categories: 4K filming No Comments

The GH5S has arrived with some very impressive specifications.

While the Lumix GH5 was the first mirrorless camera capable of shooting 4K footage at up to 60/50p, the Lumix GH5S takes this one step further and shoots at a world-first 4K 60/50p recording in Cinema 4K (4096 x 2160).

That’s just part of the story, as the GH5S is capable of internal 4:2:2 10-bit recording, which should deliver even stronger color reproduction, while V-Log now comes pre-installed on the camera – something that was an additional cost on the GH5, hopefully V-Log will become a free download for GH5 users after today.
