Panasonic GH5 to Have 6K Feature, Not 8K!

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 AmazonB&HAdorama).

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?

    It really depends on other functionalities. 6K or 8K alone doesn’t cut it for me.

    Not even remotely caring about 6k or 8k. I’m looking for high quality 4k60 and 1080p120 without lineskipping and *CLEAN* results when handling high detail, high movement video that can survive some minor manipulation.

    I recently did a project shooting out the back of a car using a 70D and a GP Hero4. I got some good footage, but looking at the footage at full res, I might as well have been shooting a cell phone camera in 720p. Blotchy, grainy as hell and smudged like a child was finger-painting on it. Thank you AVHCD and line skipping.

    The 70D is quite capable in the studio for slow moving subjects and large areas of low detail. *TERRIBLE* for outdoors.

    I’ve been ready to upgrade for over a year with cash in hand. Still waiting for something that works (and has a usable flipout screen).
