I hope many of you didn’t just recently pick up a GH5 within the past weeks. If you did, this may piss you off a bit. Yesterday, Panasonic unveiled a new camera packing some new technology inside w/ the GH5s focusing on enhancing their low-light capabilities.
Think of the GH5s as Panasonic’s version of the Sony A7S.
The GH5s is equipped w/ a larger sensor at a lower resolution. More specifically, a 10.2MP High Sensitivity MOS sensor that allows for recording video up to 51,200 ISO. This is thanks to their new Dual Native ISO technology that utilizes 2 separate sensors – one to get the most dynamic range in low-light and the other to cut the noise.
The sensor is also has a Multi Aspect option which allows you to change aspect ratios. Nice! Along w/ that you got a OLED viewfinder, swivel LCD, USB 3.1 w/a Type C connector, 14-bit Raw photos, 1080p up to 240p, record 4K up to 60p & the wider DCI 4K format up to 60p, 120fps viewfinder mode, and a mic socket that offers Phantom Power & Line-Level In options.
You can pre-order your GH5s now and will go on sale on February 2nd for $2500 for the body-only. Who’s looking upgrade or will you pass on this?
