Panasonic GH5 Review

Panasonic held its Photokina 2016 press conference a few days ago and released some very interesting news. They finally let the cat out of the bag with the New Panasonic GH5 6k Mirrorless DSLR camera. The Panasonic GH5 is the successor to its popular GH4, but the even bigger news was that it can capture 10-bit 4K at up to 60 fps, and even up to 6K — but only in burst modes. This will allow the end user to be able to pull 18MP stills from the video bursts.

Panasonic G85 Review

Another item Panasonic announced was the G85. Panasonic’s G85 Mirrorless DSLR Camera is geared towards beginners who aree looking to get into shooting 4k videos. The G85 is the successor to the popular G7. The G85 is great for those who don’t want to fork over the cash for a GH4 or a GH5.

 

Panasonic LX10 Review

panasonic-lx10-4k-01

Last but not least is Panasonic’s LX10. a 4k compact point-and-shoot camera built specifically to challenge Sony’s RX100 IV.  Small, compact, and it has 4K video, think I found my next vlogging camera.  Looks like we are going to have to do an enthusisast compact camera roundup to compare all of these new 4k point-to-shoot cameras.  The one question I have though is why wouldn’t you just opt for a mirrorless dslr instead of a point to shoot?  Guess we will have to test them head to head to see.

Panasonic has successfully introduced 4K video from the top to the bottom of their mirrorless offerings, Good luck doing that Sony or anyone else.  Panasonic has once again established itself as a primary player in the 4K marketplace.  The question I have is will the new features of the GH5 out weight the savings you will get by purchasing last years Panasonic GH4?  Only time will tell, stay tuned for more information on the Panasonic GH5 Review.
