Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5

 

The Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 is the mirrorless camera to get for 4K video, but if you're more concerned about stills, it's not a clear-cut winner.

Superlative video. Strong image quality. In-body stabilization. 10.3fps Raw capture. 4K and 6K photo modes. Sturdy all-weather build. Dual UHS-II card slots. Vari-angle touch LCD. EVF. Wi-Fi.

Focus tracking slows shooting rate. Pricey for stills-first shooters. Omits built-in flash.

If video is your primary focus, the Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 delivers the highest quality and feature set you can find in a camera in this price range. Still shooters invested in the Micro Four Thirds system shouldn't discount it either. It delivers...

Panasonic Lumix GH5 Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix GH4 proved to be a runaway success when it was released back in 2014, so Panasonic certainly had a tough act to follow with the new GH5. They've evidently spent the three intervening years hard at work, as the GH5 represents a big...

Panasonic GH5 Review

 

The Panasonic GH5 is a wonderful successor to an already great hybrid still & video camera. Sporting a new 20MP sensor, faster processor, a very deep buffer, dual UHS-II SD slots, 4K video up to 60p, 10-bit internal video recording, 6K Photo mode and...

20MP sensor; Better per-pixel sharpness; Very good, slightly improved dynamic range and high ISOs; Stellar 4K video up to 60p with no crop; 6K Photo; Dual UHS-II SD slots; Good battery life for its class.

Buffer is deep, but slow to clear; Expensive; Menus still confusing; No optical low-pass filter means greater risk of moire; No built-in flash.
