The Lumix GH5S achieves the highest ever sensitivity and best image quality in Lumix History. This is realized by combining the newly developed high sensitivity sensor with Dual Native ISO technology and the latest Venus Engine. Dual Native ISO is a revolutionary technology featured on Panasonic’s professional video cameras and offers the advantages of very high sensitivity while keeping noise levels low. Usually, with a conventional single native ISO, noise levels rise when sensitivity is increased. However, the newly developed image sensor implements dual circuits able to switch to high native sensitivity before gain processing. This means you can achieve beautiful footage with suppressed noise in low-lit situations.

The original Lumix GH5 made it possible to record 4K 60p/50p video on a DLSM camera. Now, to greatly extend your creative possibilities, the Lumix GH5S takes this even further and, for the first time, includes Cinema 4K (C4K: 4096 x 2160) 60p/50p video recording. Moreover, there is no limit to the recording time, not even when shooting FHD or 4K video.

The Lumix GH5S brings game changing internal 4:2:2 10-bit C4K/4K video recording. For example, 10-bit will render all the subtleties of graduated skies and sunsets without the banding so prone to 8-bit. The power of having film creation capabilities inside the camera sets a new precedent in guerrilla style filmmaking and you can record 4:2:2 10-bit to SD card whilst simultaneously feeding the live signal through a full size HDMI port connected to an external monitor or recorder. 4:2:2 10-bit recording enables faithful colour and grading fidelity with over a billin colours and four times the tonality of 8-bit to match professional intent.

The Lumix GH5S sensor handles multiple aspect ratios – 4:3, 17:9, 16:9 and 3:2. Thanks to broad margins of effective pixels, focal length does not change in these aspect ratios. Available for still photography, 4K and C4K video, and in Anamorphic mode, this function allows you to fully leverage the angle of view of the lens for truly stunning image expression. Also, even while using a larger sensor, high readout speeds are achieved. Rolling shutter distortion, compared to the GH5, is suppressed by approximately 1.3x with high readout speeds when recording video or using an electronic shitter.

To elevate video expressivity even further, a variety of effects are available on the Lumix GH5S. The VFR (Variable Frame Rate) lets you record overcranked/undercranked videos in C4K/4K or Full HD quality. The minimum frame rate for quick motion effects video is 2-fps.

The GH5S comes with pre-installed V-LogL Video Recording Function.
