The Panasonic Lumix GH5 (Body) is a camera able to produce high-quality images with excellent resolution and detail. Image rendering and colour production are top quality, and thanks to the digital LIVE MOS sensor, the pixel count is 25% higher than the GH4.
The GH5 comes with the image processor Venus Engine. The Venus Engine improves performance, especially in natural texture expression. 3D colour control detects hue, saturation, and brightness, applying optimum control to each of these factors. This achieves rich colour reproduction across the darker and brighter areas of the image. The conventional Multi Process NR (Noise Reduction) is upgraded to High Precision Multi Process NR. It boasts 4x the noise identification accuracy compared to the previous engine and preserves details even after the noise reduction process. As a result, photos can be clearly shot even at high sensitivity ISO values of up to 25600.
The LUMIX GH5 also incorporates the 5-axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) 2 , which suppresses blurring in more powerful and advanced ways for both photo and video recording, including 4K video. Combining an O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer, 2-axis) and B.I.S. (Body Image Stabilizer, 5-axis), it compensates for larger movements which were conventionally uncontrollable. The LUMIX GH5’s high-precision gyro sensor controls both the O.I.S. and B.I.S. compensation by studying the focal length and shooting conditions, making it possible to use a max. 5-stop slower shutter speed . This is highly beneficial not only for wide-angle and telephoto shots, but also in adverse situations, such as at night-time or when shooting with one hand.
With the LUMIX GH5, the signal readout speed has been accelerated by max 1.7x in the new Digital LIVE MOS Sensor, and the new Venus Engine processes signals at max 1.3x higher speed. This synergy realises 4K 60p / 50p ultra high-definition, smooth, video recording for the first time in a compact system camera. It is also capable of internal 4:2:2 / 10-bit video recording, which is the colour subsampling commonly used for film production, for even more faithful colour reproduction.
