Panasonic has announced its latest video-focused mirrorless camera, the Lumix GH5S, at CES 2018 in Las Vegas.
If the comprehensive video specification of the Lumix GH5 isn’t quite enough to satisfy your needs, then the GH5S could be for you.
Designed primarily for professional filmmakers, Panasonic believes that the Lumix GH5S will deliver the highest-ever video image quality seen in a Lumix camera.
For the Lumix GH5S, Panasonic has ditched the 20.3MP Micro Four Thirds Live MOS sensor found in the GH5 and replaced it with an all-new 10.2MP sensor. This has allowed Panasonic to improve on the maximum ISO of 25,600 on the GH5, with an ISO ceiling of 51,200 in the GH5S.
To reduce the risk of background image noise in low-light conditions, Panasonic has also included its Dual Native ISO Technology – we’ll bring you more detail on this when we have it.
The Lumix GH5S also gives those shooting stills the option to shoot 14-bit raw files, while the newly developed multi-aspect sensor provides sufficient margin to get the same angle of view in 4:3, 17:9, 16:9, and 3:2 aspect ratios.
