The New Panasonic LUMIX GH6 – Be Video Ready


Panasonic’s LUMIX GH Series is known for its excellent picture quality and video recording capability. For the first time in the LUMIX series, the new Panasonic LUMIX GH6 offers 5.7K 30p internal video recording in ProRes 422 HQ and ProRes 422 formats.

By increasing the effective pixel count by more than 20, the new 25.2-megapixel Live MOS Sensor boasts a high-resolution, high-speed signal readout and wide dynamic range. The new Venus Engine is equipped with advanced image processing technologies to render high-resolution images with natural noise texture and rich colour reproduction, which is a hallmark of LUMIX cameras.

The Panasonic LUMIX GH6 contains V-Log/V-Gamut – a first for LUMIX G Micro Four Thirds cameras – and provides 12+ stops and even 13+ stops of wide dynamic range using Dynamic Range Boost mode.

The new Panasonic LUMIX GH6 has again evolved to achieve 4:2:2 10-bit C4K 60p unlimited video recording time, 4:2:0 10-bit 4K120p, 4:2:2 10bit FHD 240p HFR (High Frame Rate) and FHD maximum 300fps VFR (Variable Frame Rate) to reproduce the dynamic motion of the subject. In addition to 4:2:0 10-bit 5.7K 60p, 4:2:0 10-bit 5.8K 30p (4.4K 60p) anamorphic 4:3 video can be recorded utilizing the full area of the sensor. It is possible to display de-squeezed footage on the monitor in real-time. 5.7K 30p video recording is available in Apple ProRes 422 HQ for the first time in LUMIX cameras, which enables non-linear editing without transcoding. Extended recording time is made possible with LUMIX’s heat management technology.

Boasting 7.5 stops of powerful image stabilization with its Dual I.S.2 for agile handheld shooting, the Panasonic LUMIX GH6 has adopted a new super high-precision 5-axis gyro sensor with a new algorithm to achieve 7.5 stops of Body I.S. and Dual I.S.2. It also offers a wide variety of recording formats, resolutions and framerates to choose from according to the purpose.

With expertise drawn from firsthand opinions, the Panasonic LUMIX GH6 has been designed to recognize high-quality video expression and workflow efficiency from setup to delivery in addition to excellent depiction performance and mobility. Together with a wide array of lens options, Panasonic is committed to leading the industry with creators who are seeking a new way to go beyond the limitations of creativity.

A LUMIX first: Apple ProRes codec video

Using a CFexpress Type B card (MOV, 5.7K, 5728×3024, 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 (5728×3024) 4:2:0 10-bit 60p/50p (17:9) and 5.8K (5760×4320) 30p/25p/24p 4:2:0 10-bit anamorphic (4:3) modes, the Panasonic Lumix GH6 Digital Camera Body 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 Stabilizer)

5-axis Dual I.S. 2 (Image Stabilizer) combines the 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) optimize noise reduction. The result is natural, 3D-like images with minimal noise even at high sensitivity. High-precision Dual 3D Color Control achieves improved colour reproduction (brightness, saturation, and hue), resulting in more faithful and richer colour expression.

New 25.2MP sensor

The Panasonic Lumix GH6 Digital Camera Body 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.
