Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S Review

Announced Jan 8, 2018 •
10 megapixels | 3.2 screen | Four Thirds sensor
dpreview conclusion

The GH5S is a highly specialized filmmakers' camera that makes few concessions to anything but this core purpose. An excellent sensor combined with high bitrate, 10-bit 4:2:2 capture means the results are hugely impressive. Add an external recorder and these benefits remain, even for both UHD and DCI 60p capture. The loss of stabilization means it's limited to gimbal or tripod work but in those circumstances, it shines.
