'The Panasonic Lumix GH5 and GH5S reached unprecedented popularity for pros, vloggers and indie shooters alike, with their customisation options, sleek workflow and rugged compact design, paired with a micro four thirds mount that gave a vast choice of lenses. The GH6 builds on Panasonic’s previous successes with notable upgrades; The megapixel count is raised to 25 for added fidelity, and you get an expanded ISO with dual output gain. However, the real show-stopping features for many shooters will be the recording options and focus performance, with the GH6 able to shoot in Apple Prores 422 and utilise an autofocus system 3 times faster than its predecessors. All the above makes the GH6 a worthy successor to Panasonic's previous accomplishments'
Hybrid mirrorless camera featuring new 25.2-megapixel Live MOS sensor, 4:2:2 10-bit C4K/4K 60p/50p video and unlimited recording time.
A LUMIX first: Apple ProRes codec video
Using a CFexpress Type B card (MOV, 5.7K, 5728x3024, 29.97p/25.00p/24.00p), you can internally record ProRes 422 HQ and ProRes 422 codec videos, the professional industry standard, which deliver high image quality at low compression. This significantly reduces the load on the computer during post-production and allows NLE (non-linear editing) without transcoding, streamlining your workflow from start to finish.
5.7K 10-bit 60p/50p recording
With 5.7K (5728x3024) 4:2:0 10-bit 60p/50p (17:9) and 5.8K (5760x4320) 30p/25p/24p 4:2:0 10-bit anamorphic (4:3) modes, the LUMIX GH6 offers higher resolution and higher bit rates than ever before, and delivers the latest in high image quality, versatility, and expressive range needed for film, TV, and all types of video production.
Unlimited 4:2:2 10-bit C4K/4K 60p/50p video recording time
The first LUMIX to offer 4:2:2 10-bit C4K/4K 60p/50p internal recording, the GH6 delivers unlimited recording time when used at the recommended operating temperature. Ideal for small production teams and in demanding conditions where mobility and high-quality are a must. Also allows for simultaneous internal recording and external recording via HDMI output.
7.5-stop Dual I.S. 2 (Image Stabiliser)
5-axis Dual I.S. 2 (Image Stabiliser) combines control of the Body I.S. and Lens O.I.S. to offer 7.5 stops’ worth of correction.
HFR/VFR 10-bit recording
High-resolution slow-motion recording, recently gaining popularity in video production, is now made possible using C4K/4K 10-bit 120p/100p HFR (high-frame-rate) video recording with audio. The LUMIX GH6 also offers a wide range of 10-bit ALL-Intra recording modes for high-end editing, so you can shoot FHD 240p/200p HFR and FHD 240fps VFR (variable frame rate) video. With VFR you can record up to 12.5x super slow-motion video (FHD 10-bit 24p/300fps).
New Venus Engine
The new Venus Engine delivers approximately twice the processing power as before, enabling high-speed processing of the new sensor's higher pixel counts and higher-resolution, higher-bit-rate video. Image quality performance is also greatly improved. New Intelligent Detail Processing offers higher resolution, and new 2D and high-performance 3D Noise Reduction (for videos) optimise noise reduction. The result is natural, 3D-like images with minimal noise even at high sensitivity. High-precision Dual 3D Colour Control achieves improved colour reproduction (brightness, saturation, and hue), resulting in more faithful and richer colour expression.
New 25.2MP sensor
The LUMIX GH6 features the first Micro Four Thirds™ system standard 25.2-megapixel Live MOS sensor. With no low-pass filter, its design allows for both more pixels and higher resolution, for ultra-realistic detail. Its higher readout speed delivers C4K/4K 120p video recording and 75-frames-per-second burst shooting using the electronic shutter while also minimizing rolling shutter distortion.

In 2009, Panasonic introduced the DMC-GH1, the first model of the LUMIX GH series, with a hybrid photo/video concept. Since then, the GH series has evolved with innovative features demanded by users, and now, it has become renowned by creators worldwide as a first-choice tool thanks to its performance, mobility, and rugged design. The LUMIX GH6 is the latest addition to the series that again breaks the boundaries of mirrorless cameras.Read full article
