If you're a filmmaker or photographer, you've no doubt heard of the LUMIX GH5. LUMIX is a photography brand of the Panasonic Corporation. Established in 2001, it introduced the world’s first digital interchangeable lens system mirrorless camera in 2008. With the launch of the GH5, LUMIX entered the professional market and it's since established its position by delivering more advanced cameras like the G9 and GH5S.
However, the GH5 remains a hugely popular camera and one that the RØDE video team uses in the field and in the studio week-in-week-out. There are ten of these babies up for grabs for the winners of this year's My RØDE Reel competition – not to mention a share of $1 million in cash.
Thinking of entering? Head to myrodereel.com to find out more and download your starter pack. Check out five awesome features of the GH5 below.
A 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor without a low-pass filter and a new Venus Engine achieve the ultimate picture quality in the history of the LUMIX G range. Multipixel Luminance Generation and Intelligent Detail Processing result in natural images with stunning detail. The Three-Dimensional Colour Control allows rich colours from dark to bright shades and high-precision Multi Process NR makes your images clear even at high ISO sensitivity settings.
The GH5 takes professional shooting performance to another level with high-precision, silky-smooth 4K 60p/50p (QFHD 4K: 3840 x 2160 / MOV or MP4) video or internal 4:2:2 10-bit 4K video recording capability. High-resolution images and perfect focal length can also be achieved as the GH5 features pixel for pixel, no sensor cropping recording. There's also no recording duration limit.
Panasonic's innovative DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology is constantly evolving. It calculates the distance to the subjects by comparing depth of field values of two images at incredibly high speed. By combining the auto-focus drive with a maximum read speed of 480 fps, GH5 can achieve ultra-high-speed auto-focus in up to 0.05 seconds and 9 fps burst shooting with AFC.
The GH5's 6K PHOTO mode is a high-speed burst shooting function that cuts a still image out of 4:3 or 3:2 video footage, allowing you to shoot with unlimited burst, then choose and extract the exact frames you want to keep. The ultra-high-speed 4K PHOTO mode freezes even faster motion, which is simply not possible in conventional cameras.
The GH5 is built to withstand even heavy use out in the field. It is freeze-proof down to -10-degrees, in addition to splash- and dust-proof construction.
