Panasonic India today launched ‘LUMIX GH5S – the world’s first high precision, 4K recording camera designed specifically for low light scenarios. The camera allows ISO 51200 high sensitivity recording when the use of supplemental lighting may not be possible as well as an extended ISO of up to 204,800.
The LUMIX GH5S features 5EV luminance detection performance with Low Light auto-focus that aids in higher sensitivity and optimised tuning of the sensor. It is further powered with a LiveView Boost feature that makes it possible to check the composition even in total darkness by boosting the sensitivity just for Live view. The camera has been designed specifically for professional filmmakers such as cinematographers, documentary makers, wedding users and YouTubers.
To further elevate the video expression, GH5S also comes with a Variable Frame Rate Effect (VFR) that allows users to record slow motions and time lapse videos seamlessly in 60 FPS and 240 FPS format, alike. The camera also comes pre-installed with a V logL feature, so users don’t have to purchase a software upgrade key separately.
To make it rugged for outdoor use, the GH5S sports magnesium alloy full die-cast front. The rear and top frame is not only splash-proof and dust-proof but also freeze-proof down to -10 degrees Celsius.
‘With the LIMIX GH5S, videographers now will be able to shoot in both Ultra HD and cinema 4K resolutions. The camera now comes with 225-point auto-focus system to achieve outstanding footage in any environment, especially in low light. It also allows to shoot time-lapses and 2.5x slow motion in 4K or up 10x slow motion in Full HD,’ said Gaurav Ghavri, Product Head, Digital Imaging, Panasonic India.
The camera is available at all Panasonic stores across the country at a price of Rs. 184,990.
