The Panasonic GH6 is a compact, professional-grade, hybrid video/photo camera for the Micro 4/3 system. It offers the high performance and workflow efficiency you expect from Panasonic’s G series. Key features include:

  • New 25.2MP Live MOS sensor; Venus engine processor

  • Unlimited 4K 60p 4:2:2 10-bit recording

  • 5.7K 60p, 4K 120p HFRFHD 300p VFR

  • 7.5-stop, 5-axis Dual Image Stabilization 2 system

25.2MP Live MOS Sensor and Venue Engine Processor. The Panasonic GH6 boasts a completely new 25.2MP Digital Live MOS sensor that features a dual-output gain design that lets you simultaneously capture a high-grain and low-grain frame, and combine the results for a wider dynamic range. It offers 13+ stops of dynamic range, enables video recording at high bitrates without limits on recording time, and is unencumbered by a low-pass filter so that it produces maximum sharpness. The sensor works in combination with the ultra-fast Venus Engine image processor to give you detailed, high-resolution, color-accurate images and video throughout its 200 – 25,600 normal ISO range (100 – 12,800 for video).

High-Bitrate Video Powerhouse. Although the GH6 is a hybrid camera, its video capabilities are its biggest draw. The GH6 is capable of capturing lossless 5.7K 60p with 4:2:0 10-bit sampling and DCI 4K 60p with 10:2:2 10-bit sampling. It can also record open gate with the 4:3 sensor for 5.8K 30p 4:2:0 10-bit and 4.4K 4:2:0 10-bit video. You can internally record 5.7K 30p Apple ProRes 422 HQ to a CFexpress Type B card or 4K 120p footage to an SD card. You can use the HDMI port to simultaneously record internal and external video at up to DCI 4K in 17:9 with a bit depth up to 4:2:2 10-bit at 60p, 50p, 30p, 25p, or 24p for an instant backup. Finally, you can shoot variable frame-rate slow-motion at 300 fps.

Professional Video Functionality. Waveforms, vectorscope monitoring, zebras, and focus peaking are all carried over from the GH5, and the GH6 also offers a variety of handy features like in-camera LUTs for monitoring, the CINELIKE D2 picture style, which prioritizes dynamic range, the CINELIKE V2 picture style, which prioritizes contrast, the “nostalgic” L.ClassicNeo color mode, and the self-explanatory L.Monochrome S color mode.

Five-Axis Image Stabilization with Dual I.S. 2 Support. While other Panasonic cameras have in-camera sensor stabilization, the GH6 uses five-axis sensor stabilization. When paired with a stabilized Panasonic lens that supports Dual I.S. 2, you’ll see up to 7.5 stops of correction.

But What About Still Photography? While its headlining features are primarily video-centric, the GH6 is a quite capable still camera. You get high-speed burst shooting at 75 fps with an electronic shutter, or at 14 fps with single-shot autofocus and 8 fps with continuous autofocus using a mechanical shutter. You can use image-stabilization technology to combine 8 consecutive stills into a single, high-res 100MP image without using a tripod.

315-Point Autofocus System. The improved Depth From Defocus autofocus system offers fast, accurate performance with 315 AF points, making it great for video and still applications alike. Tracking performance has been markedly improved, and the camera is able to quickly lock onto moving subjects’ faces, eyes, and bodies and continue following them, even against a background of other moving subjects. The GH6 can capture stills at up to 14 fps with single-shot autofocus and 8 fps with continuous autofocus.

OLED EVF & Touchscreen Rear LCD. The GH6 retains its predecessor’s 3.68M-dot OLED electronic viewfinder with 0.76x magnification. Outside of the Leica SL, it remains one of the best available. Meanwhile, the 3.0-inch 1.84m-dot rear RGBW LCD is fully articulating and touch-capable.

Other Notable Features. Build quality is much the same as the previous G-series cameras, with extensive weather-sealing around the magnesium alloy that Panasonic claims is dust-proof, splash-proof, and freeze-proof down to 14º F. There are two memory card slots: one for CFexpress Type B cards and the other for UHS-II SD cards, while the DMW-BLK22 rechargeable battery gives you roughly 350 shots per charge. You also get built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for wireless image transfer and remote camera control, and you can use the optional Panasonic DMW-XLR1 XLR Microphone Adapter add-on for professional audio functionality.

Need a Memory Card? You’ll need an ultra-fast memory card for a camera this powerful, and we recommend the Sony 128GB SF-G Tough Series UHS-II SDXC. This camera can take full advantage of its superior 299 MB/s max write speed and 300 MB/s max read speed for high-resolution, high-bitrate capture.

Q & A

  • What kind of card do I need to shoot 4K 10-bit 4:2:2 video?
    • In order to use the 400Mbps 4K recording mode without a record limit, Panasonic recommends V90 rated cards. Currently, this is what we recommend.

  • Does this camera have V-Log L?
    • No, this camera only includes the standard V-Log gamma.

  • Does this camera have a built-in flash or accessory flash included?
    • Panasonic removed the built-in flash for this generation and no accessory flash is included. However, we do have some flash options listed under Recommended on the left-hand side of this page.

  • Can I use this camera tethered to a computer?
    • If you want to shoot tethered or power the camera via USB, you’ll need to use a USB 3.1 Type-C cable. If you need one, let us know in the Special Instructions box at checkout.
