Panasonic launches the new GH6. The new microfourthirds camera with a M43 new sensor. 25 megapixels a first for M43. And it also promises 100MP hand held images. These images compensate effectively for any movements in the photos stitched. They present great details as well.
The LUMIX GH6 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.

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 color reproduction (brightness, saturation, and hue), resulting in more faithful and richer color expression.
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.
*Under the guaranteed operating environment. When using a battery. The recording time depends on the capacity of the battery and the recording media.
･Corresponding to 4K (4096×2160) as defined by Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI).
･CFexpress card or an SD memory card with Video Speed Class 90 is required.
5.7K 10-bit 60p/50p recording
With 5.7K (5728x3024) 4:2:0 10-bit 60p/50p (17:9) and 5.8K (5760x4320) 30p/25p/24p 4:2:0 10-bit anamorphic (4:3) modes, the LUMIX GH6 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.
A LUMIX first: Apple ProRes codec video
Using a CFexpress Type B card (MOV, 5.7K, 5728x3024, 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.
