Panasonic has announced its latest video-focused camera, the Lumix GH6, after a delay. It was the new numbered entry in the popular GH font aroused Almost a year ago along with the launch of the GH5 Mark II; Panasonic confirmed at the time that it would capture up to 10-bit 4:2:0 4K at 120 fps, 10-bit 4: 2:2 4K at 60 fps, and 10-bit 5.7K at 60 fps.
Now the camera has been fully revealed, and while it looks similar to its predecessor and features the same 3-inch hinged screen, the interior is all new. There’s a new 25.2-megapixel Micro Four Thirds sensor and a new Venus Engine image processor, which together lets you shoot photos at 14 frames per second with autofocus locked. It’s the highest resolution sensor ever found in a four- or four-part camera.
Panasonic has also added a built-in fan to the camera to allow it to record for longer periods, and a new 5-axis image stabilization system adds 7.5-stop compensation. The GH6 is the first Lumix Micro Four Thirds camera to include a V-Log format and V-Gamut color space, which maintains a greater dynamic range for post-production.
The Lumix GH6 will cost $2,199 for the chassis only next month, which is $500 more than the GH5 Mark II and $200 more than the original GH5, but is actually cheaper than the $2,499 price tag that was expected to launch last year. Between this and the OM OM-1 system, Which was announced last week The first new model to come from Olympus’s camera business, it’s time for you to be a high-end user of the Micro Four Thirds system.
