Panasonic's successor to the amazing GH4 is here! A new 20.3 MP Digital Live MOS sensor with a brand new Venus Engine processor provide a huge speed increase to processing times. Internal 4K at up to 60 fps, internal 10-bit 4:2:2 4K (though you'll need a monster computer) and full HD up to 180 fps add up to a monster camera in a tiny package! All of our GH5 bodies have the Panasonic V-Log L Gamma activated, so you can get a nice, flat, 12-stop dynamic range. Built-in 5-axis image stabilization works with certain Dual I.S. 2 lenses to provide up to 5 stops of shutter speed correction. Dual UHS-II card slots give you blistering speeds needed to write all that 4K hotness. FULL SIZE HDMI out gives great connectivity to this small body.

The micro four thirds sensor has a 2x full frame crop equivalent, please see our MFT lenses here. 

If those Micro Four-Thirds lenses don't do it for you, check out our Metabones Canon EF Lens to Micro Four-Thirds Speed Booster XL 0.64X to mount Canon EF glass to the GH5.

The Metabones Speed Booster XL 0.64X will vignette when used with APS-C lenses below 20mm with the Panasonic GH5 due to the full sensor 4k readout on the GH5. Full frame EF lenses are fine down to the Canon 11-24, but APS-C lenses like the Sigma 18-35 will vignette until 20mm.

To record using the camera's 4K 10-bit shooting modes, you will need an SDXC card that is rated for V60 speeds (or faster). This is the card we currently recommend.
