Expanding on the success of the GH5, Panasonic’s upgraded GH5S mirrorless camera comes packed with video features to give many more expensive professional cameras a run for their money. Record Cinema4K video in 4:2:2 10-Bit, or 4K in 8-Bit up to 60fps. A new dual native ISO allows for greater low light sensitivity and the GH5S also comes with the powerful V-LOGL gamma profile preinstalled.
Dedicated video camera:
Panasonic have taken the hugely popular GH5 and adapted it for professional filmmakers. Using the BNC adapter, users now have access to Timecode In/Out, 4K recording in both 8- and 10-bit, and Full HD recording up to a massive 240fps. The GH5S also features other useful video features such as unlimited record times, 4K shooting up to 60p (60fps in 8-Bit / 30fps in 10-Bit), and a multi- aspect ratio sensor, meaning no matter which aspect ratio you film in, the full diagonal sensor will be used.
High-sensitivity 10.2MP sensor:
Despite an apparent significant decrease in sensor resolution, the GH5S’ brand new 10.2MP Micro Four Thirds sensor features pixels that are 1.96x larger than in the GH5, which results in better low-light performance, and superb clarity
Removal of in-camera image stabilisation:
Some users of the GH5 encountered issues with the image camera stabilisation, where shooting in certain circumstances created unwanted visual effects. By removing in-camera stabilisation from the GH5S, Panasonic have shown that by listening to their customers, they can create a camera that meets the specific needs of production specialists.
Dual Native ISO:
A camera’s native ISO is the ISO point at which the camera produces the cleanest gain results. By developing a sensor with 2 native ISO points (ISO 400 & 2500), users have low-noise ISO points for both normal and low-light environments.
V-LogL & View Assistant Function:
Unlike with the GH5, users of the GH5S don’t need to purchase and install V-LogL as an additional extra. This super-flat picture profile allows for greater control in post-production, with 12-stops of dynamic range. Panasonic have also added a LUT display function, allowing users to upload a Look Up Table to their camera via an SD card, and view their footage back with a basic colour correction already applied.
