Panasonic GH5 is rumored to end up being working on the Lumix GH5, its next-generation range-topping Micro Four Thirds camera, and to launch this sometime in 2016 with significant improvements over the predecessor.

World’s first mirrorless interchangeable lens camera to record 4K videos is the Panasonic GH4. This Micro Four Thirds present shooter was revealed in early 2014, and they have become a best-seller among videographers and photographers alike.

Could its first birthday, the rumor mill mentioned information about its substitute in October 2014. A highly-reliable source is a today referring to the mirrorless camera once again, proclaiming that the Panasonic GH5 release date is scheduled to consider place sometime in 2016.

Panasonic GH5 release date will be held at in 2016, not 2015

Even though the Lumix GH4 is not so old and it is an excellent camera, many people were looking to see a Panasonic GH5 being unveiled by the end of 2016. Nevertheless, a trusted insider provides dismissed these talks and has confirmed that right now there is no chance to get the Micro Four Thirds camera to demonstrate up this year.

On the various another hand, we can expect the device to become established next year. A timeframe is not given so that the Panasonic GH5 could be revealed towards the beginning of the year, like its predecessor, or sometime around September and Photokina 2016, as this is the world’s largest digital imaging event and it will get a lot of exposure at this show.

For the time being, there are no leaked specifications about the shooter. However, the source has been able to confirm that the new model will be a major improvement over the existing generation.

It will be hard to top GH4’s specs, but the GH5 has been rumored to be capable of recording videos at 8K resolution. That would be quite an impressive achievement and it remains to be seen whether Panasonic can pull it off or not.

Panasonic GH4 will be replaced by the GH5 sometime in 2016.
Panasonic GH4 will be replaced by the GH5 sometime in 2016.

Meanwhile, the Panasonic GH4 is available for purchase at Amazon for a price a little under the $1, 500 mark. For this amount, users are getting in-body 4K video recording from a 16-megapixel Micro Four Thirds sensor, 200Mbps bitrate, 25, 600 maximum ISO sensitivity, 12fps continuous shooting mode, built-in OLED viewfinder, and a fully-articulated touchscreen.

Specifications of Panasonic gh5

Panasonic will announce a 6K mirrorless system camera during the fiscal year 2016. Means it will be published within now and March 2017. Easy to guess that Photokina is the best spot to announce that new High-End camera. While Nikkan sources have not confirmed it, it’s very likely that this will be the new GH5 camera. The GH5 will have those specs:

– 6k recording at 30fps and 4K at 60fps
– Each 6K frame has 18 Million Pixels. It means you can screen shot 18MP photos from each 6K recorded frame
– If the camera records 6K than the Four Thirds sensor will have 20 Megapixels in “normal still picture mode”.

I don’t think the GH5 will have the new “organic sensor.” That’s highly unlikely to happen anytime soon. And 8K will find his way in a long term GH6 model in 2018-2019. At 8K every single frame has 33MP resolution:
