At Photokina 2016, Panasonic announced the development of their new flagship mirrorless camera the LUMIX DMC-GH5, which will have some highly impressive features such as 6K photo capture at 18MP, 4K/60 video and even internal 4K capture at 10bit 422 – a first for any mirrorless camera or DSLR! After months of speculation and a good dose of rumors (most of which were surprisingly true) and teasers, earlier today, as expected, Panasonic did a “soft-launch” of the upcoming GH5 announcing they are working hard on bringing you one of the most advanced mirrorless cameras to date. The company also re-affirmed their position as fully committed to bridging the gap between video and stills by moving towards 8K by 2020. Their Lumix UK division had this tweet earlier with the heartwarming message “We Heard You” underneath.

Detailed info about the upcoming Panasonic Lumix GH5 is very limited, but this is what we know so far:

– New 18MP CMOS (Micro 4/3 type) sensor
– New Body Design
– 6K Photo at 30p for 18 Megapixel extracts (unclear if the 30p revers to a video stream that can be recorded or not)
– 4K/60p (possibly in 8bit 4:2:0 or 10bit 4:2:0) read more on that below
– 4K at 24, 25 and 30p at 10bit 4:2:2 internal (codec unknown, could be H.265, could be H.264 based)
– 8MP / 60fps Burst Photo – possibly from the 4K/60p stream
– No info on IBIS (in-body image stabilisation)
– Available – first half of 2017 (can be Q1 or Q2)
– Price – TBD
