Panasonic will release the Micro Four Thirds standard mirrorless camera “LUMIX DC-GH6” on March 25th. The price is open. The estimated actual price is around 263,000 yen for the body alone and around 337,000 yen for the standard zoom lens kit.
The “LUMIX DC-GH6” is the flagship model of the “LUMIX G” series, which was announced in May last year and aims to achieve both the mobility of a mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera and the ability to express a variety of images.
Equipped with a newly developed 25.2M Live MOS sensor and a new-generation Venus engine whose arithmetic processing speed is about twice as fast as the company’s full-size machine “DC-S1H”, it has a sense of resolution, high-speed performance, and dynamic range. Achieved improvement. LUMIX’s first 5.7K 60p high-resolution video recording, 4K 120p / FHD 240p high frame rate shooting, various slow motion expressions that can be generated from a maximum of 300 fps in FHD, and high gradation performance even in scenes with large contrast. It is said that the dynamic range boost that can be demonstrated can greatly expand the options for video expression.
Cinema4K 60p recording newly supports 4: 2: 2 10 bit internal recording of up to 800 Mbps (when using a CFexpress card), and due to the evolution of the heat dissipation structure, it is possible to shoot with unlimited recording time. In addition, it is the first LUMIX to support the internal recording of Apple ProRes 422 HQ, which is the standard codec for the video industry (when using a CFexpress card), and is equipped with a variety of video recording formats for everything from shooting sites to post-production workflows. Achieves the high-quality video expression that creators demand.
In addition, the image stabilization system Dual IS 2 has evolved to the highest 7.5 steps in the LUMIX G series. The rear monitor uses a 3.0-inch touch panel LCD monitor with a high brightness of approximately 1.84 million dots.
External dimensions (excluding protrusions) are approximately width 138.4 x height 100.3 x depth 99.6 mm. Weight is about 823g (including main unit, battery and one SD memory card), about 739g (main unit only).
