Exclusive preview of Panasonic GH5 in Mumbai

On 28thMarch 2017, Panasonic launched its most hyped camera of all times, the Lumix GH5. The new camera was launched in Delhi, but Panasonic gave people an exclusive preview of the GH5 before the official launch, at a workshop in Mumbai. The workshop was conducted by Nick Driftwood, an actor, photographer, filmmaker and an experienced director. Nick has been testing the GH5 and he shared his experiences of working with the GH5. Nick shared a lot of images and videos shot by him explaining various features of the GH5 and how it could be used to replace a photographers still and filmmaker’s video camera. The GH5 gets the hype from its most amazing feature which is the 6K screen-grab that can be extracted from 4K videos. Nick emphasised the fact that the latest demand in quality video production is putting more and more video makers in a dilemma. The dilemma of buying a camera that could do all. This is where the GH5 claims to focus on. A camera that can be good enough for production quality videos and great stills. The GH5 shoots 4K videos as well and slow motion full HD.

The Panasonic GH5 had received a lot of attention even when the camera was first announced last year, as rumors spread like a wild fire and every enthusiast looked forward to get their hands on the camera. The workshop also had arranged a hands on with several Lumix lenses compatible GH5 lineup. Summing up, the Panasonic GH5 is a micro four-thirds interchangeable lens camera with a 20.3 megapixel sensor, 4K video shooting and 6K photo. The GH5 also shoots slow motion full HD videos. It also features dual SD card slots. Along with the GH5, Panasonic has also showcased an XLR hot-shoe adapter for external microphones and a battery grip which will increase the shooting duration. The GH5 also shoots without a break which means you can keep shooting until you run out of memory.
