We already reported that Panasonic will release a new 6K capable interchangeable lens mirrorless camera during 2016 financial year (goes til March 31, 2017). And this new camera is expected to be Panasonic GH5.
There are some rumors around the web saying that the Panasonic GH5 mirrorless camera will be a 8K MFT camera. Here we have to reminder you that the Panasonic GH5 will be a 6K capable interchangeable lens mirrorless camera, NOT 8K! So, do not expect the GH5 to have 8K feature, but it is highly likely that Panasonic will announce a new 8K camcorder before a 8K MFT mirrorless camera.
The upcoming Panasonic GH5 will record 6K videos at 30fps and, respectively, 4K movies at 60fps. And this new camera will be able to extract 18-megapixel stills while recording videos. This would require a higher-resolution sensor than the 16-megapixel unit found in the Lumix GH4 ($1,297 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama).
And the new Panasonic GH5 is expected to be annnounced at Photokina 2016 in September.
So, if the Panasonic GH5 can record 6K videos at 30fps, will you buy it?
