Manufacturer description: The Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S is a video-centered Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera. It uses a multi-aspect 10.2MP Live MOS that maintains exactly the identical field-of-view in 4:3, 3:2, 1:1 and 16:9 aspect ratios. Its ‘Double Native ISO Technology’ and also Venus Engine 10 chip allow for a native ISO variety of both 160-51,200, expandable to 80-204,800. Being designed for video, the GH5S comes with an anti-aliasing filter (to reduce moiré) and lacks in-body picture insertion.

The camera is capable of capturing both DCI (Cinema) and UHD 4K in 60p and 24/23.98de video in up to 400Mbps. It supports HDR video with a Hybrid Log Gamma mode and has V-LogL along with the Rec.709 LUT built-in (users could load up to 3 LUTs to the camera, as well). The camera may be utilized as a time code generator using a adapter which links a BNC cable into its flash sync port. Other video features incorporate a vectorscope/waveform screen, knee control, luminance level modification, zebra patterns and more.

The GH5S utilizes Panasonic’s Depth from Defocus contrast detect AF system which is capable of focusing in light levels as much as -5EV. The camera may take bursts of up to 12 fps (or even 11 fps if using 14-bit Raw) with AF secured and 7 fps with continuous AF. Additionally, it has a fully articulating 3.2″ touchscreen display, ultra-high-res 3.68M-dot EVF and 802.11ac Wi-Fi with Bluetooth. The GH5S has a rugged, weather-sealed body with dual SD card slots, each of which support UHS-II / V90 media. It’s a full-size HDMI port in addition to a USB 3.1 Form C connector.
