Panasonic GH5 II Body

The Panasonic GH5 II Body Only delivers new enhancements including wireless live streaming capability; C4K/4K 60p 4:2:0 10-bit video recording and simultaneous output of 4:2:2 10-bit over HDMI during 4K 60p 4:2:0 10-bit internal recording; V-Log L pre-installed; and unlimited recording in all video modes.

This camera is the first G Series model to offer high quality wireless live streaming with just the camera, smartphone and the LUMIX Sync app. H.264 in RTMP/RTMPS protocol, allows streaming directly to platforms such as YouTube or Facebook without the need for a paid cloud streaming server. In addition, 1080p Full HD at up to 60 frames per second 16Mbps maximises video quality.

For wired live streaming, the LUMIX Webcam Software (download) allows the Panasonic GH5 II to act as a high quality webcam via USB. With a future firmware update, the camera will also support wired IP streaming (RTP/RTSP), providing greater flexibility for live production and multi-camera setups.

By using the latest algorithm developed for the S1H, GH5 II's Advanced Body I.S. (Image Stabiliser) delivers up to 6.5-stops slower shutter speeds, a 1.5 stops improvement on the previous GH5 camera for impressively stable handheld shooting and video panning. The camera also incorporates a 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor with a new Anti-Reflective (AR) coating for maximum lens performance, and an updated image processor with the latest high-speed Venus Engine. The autofocus has also been improved for both video recording and still shooting with more accurate subject detection and precise focusing - particularly for faces and heads, as well as animals and moving objects.

A rugged field-ready design with a magnesium alloy full diecast front/rear frame, is both splash and dust-resistant and also freeze-resistant down to -10 degrees Celsius. Dual SD card slots offer flexibility with relay recording or backup support. To enhance shooting ergonomics, a versatile free-angle 3.0-inch LCD rear monitor (3:2 aspect, 1840K-dot) features a higher luminosity than the GH5, plus superior colour reproduction for better visibility in outdoor shooting situations.

To further enhance performance and usability, GH5 Mark II firmware updates are scheduled for June 8, 2021. They will include Live View Composite, USB Tethering, and RTP/RTSP Wired IP Streaming. In addition, when LUMIX G / LEICA DG lenses are used with the GH5 Mark 2, users will be able to choose between linear or non-linear control of the focus ring, allowing for more precise and repeatable focus transitions when using manual focus.


Key Features of the Panasonic GH5 II Body Only

High Quality Video & Advanced Editing

Panasonic GH5 II features outstanding video performance for professional videography and is capable of unlimited video recording in all video modes. In addition, the camera can record C4K/4K 60p 4:2:0 10-bit; and also offers simultaneous output of 4:2:2 10-bit over HDMI during 4K 60p 4:2:0 10-bit internal recording. With no crop when recording in 4K 60p, the user can capture video in the original viewing angle of the lens.

HLG Gamma + Cinelike Colour Profiles
Like the S1H – the S Series video flagship full-frame mirrorless camera - the LUMIX GH5 II includes the HLG gamma profile and has two types of Cinelike gamma presets selectable in Photo Style. HLG allows for high dynamic range video shooting with minimal need for editing, thanks to its broadcast-ready colour gamut format.

With the included Cinelike modes, impressive warm skin tones or delicate nuances of light and shadow can be reproduced even without colour grading over V-Log L footage. The Cinelike D2 setting gives priority to dynamic range and the Cinelike V2 prioritises contrast. MonochromeS and L.ClassicNeo Photo Styles, which were first introduced on the LUMIX S5, have also been added. All these modes can be used for Anamorphic video recording. For VFR (Variable Frame Rate) recording, C4K/4K 60fps, Anamorphic 50fps and FHD180fps are available. AF can be set before starting VFR recording. The Panasonic LUMIX GH5 II also incorporates cinema-standard practical video assist tools such as Waveform Monitor and V-Log L View Assist.

Pre-installed V-Log L
V-Log L comes pre-installed in the camera, delivering high dynamic range with broad colours, and renders a very flat image while maintaining all of the colour information within the image. Designed with consistent colour management and an easier post production workflow in mind, the recorded footage is easily matched with VLog L footage recorded by the LUMIX S1/S1H/S5 or LUMIX GH5/GH5S/BGH1. 35 conversion LUTs for VariCam cinema cameras can be downloaded free of charge for use in the LUMIX GH5 II.

High-precision AF

The Panasonic GH5 II features high-speed, high-precision AF. In addition to the eye, face and body, the head is also separately recognised by real-time detection technology to provide even more precise focusing. The camera keeps tracking subjects when they move quickly, turn away, tilt their head or move far away from the camera. Also, improvements to DFD technology have enhanced AFC, which allows the camera to keep tracking small or fast-moving subjects and capture them in crisp focus. GH5 Mark II detects the eye and face at a 2x faster recognition cycle speed than the GH5, even if they are around 50% smaller in the frame.

Reliability & Versatility

The camera is highly reliable in the field, with secure construction and a sealing for every joint, dial, and button. The shutter unit also has a life of around 200,000 cycles. For outdoor use, the Panasonic GH5 II uses the DMW-BLK22 2200mAh high capacity battery first launched with the LUMIX S5. The battery complies with USB PD (Power Delivery), convenient when travelling and using a USB power bank, and can also be recharged via AC or USB. The GH5 II has a double SD Memory Card slot compatible with high-speed, high capacity UHS-II for Relay, Backup or Allocation Recording.

Other shooting assist functions include Frame Markers for checking composition during recording. A wide range of aspect ratios are supported, including those for popular social media platforms – 16:9, 4:3, 1:1, 4:5, 5:4 and 9:16. In addition, the REC Frame Indicator allows the user to check at a glance if the camera is recording or not.

Bluetooth 4.2 & Wi-Fi 5-GHz Connectivity
Content sharing with smartphones is streamlined using Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy connection, Wi-Fi 5-GHz (IEEE802.11ac) and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi® (IEEE 802.11b/g/n). With an always-on Bluetooth connection, a smartphone can act as the camera’s remote control via the LUMIX Sync app. The settings of a GH5 II camera can also be copied and transmitted to other GH5 II cameras when shooting using multiple cameras (either via LUMIX Sync or SD Card).

The camera is compatible with the LUMIX Tether applications which enable tethered shooting via USB. Users can control the camera by connecting it to a PC and view images on a large PC screen while shooting, useful in situations where continuous confirmation is required.


 

Continued support with Future Firmware Update planned for GH5 II by the end of 2021

Panasonic has already promised future support and plan to bring even more features to the new Panasonic GH5 Mark II. Features planned includes:

  • Live View Composite
  • USB Tethering(4G/5G Smartphone Link) Compatible Streaming Distribution for more stable connection with smartphones
  • RTP/RTSP wired IP streaming – by connecting the camera to the PC via wired LAN, high quality video with sound can be stably streamed to social streaming platforms. A USB Ethernet adaptor is required.

 

Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 II ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens

The Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 Asph. Lens for Micro 4/3 (Black) is the first constant-aperture standard zoom for a mirrorless system camera. With an equivalent (in 35mm format) 24-70mm zoom range, this is a close match for a type of zoom lens that's very popular with photographers using full-frame cameras--from a true wide-angle to a short telephoto focal length and a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture through the entire range.

This lens features POWER O.I.S. image stabilisation, nearly silent operation when shooting video, and specially treated glass that dramatically reduces ghosting and flare (Nano Surface Coating), minimizes chromatic aberration (Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion glass), and improves descriptive performance from corner to corner (Ultra High Refractive glass). A splash-proof and dust-proof design means you won't need to handle this lens with kid gloves, or put your camera away when a drop of rain falls. It is designed to withstand the harshest conditions and perform under all manner of stress.

    • Lens has f/2.8 brightness over the entire zoom range
    • Nano Surface Coating technology for dramatic reduction of ghost and flare
    • UED (Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion) lens minimize chromatic aberration while the UHR (Ultra High Refractive) lens realizes high descriptive performance from corner to corner.
