Livestream the Panasonic Lumix GH5 Event Right Here, Right Now

At 1 PM EST on March 29, B&H Photo and Video is hosting a livestream event about the Panasonic GH5. Watch it right here.

We can barely contain our excitement about the release of the Panasonic's new mirrorless MFT (micro four thirds) camera, the Lumix GH5. This is the first mirrorless camera with 4K video at 60/50p. With these faster frame rates, filmmakers no longer have to sacrifice resolution to get slow motion or a simply a crispy, faster rate of capture. Panasonic took things further by adding internal 4:2:2 10-bit image capture for 4K video at up to 30 fps. The camera also boasts a 20.3-megapixel sensor, highly effective shake correction (which can compensate for up to five stops of shutter speed), an accurate Advanced DFD autofocus system that can lock on in just .05 seconds, and 6K PHOTO mode at 30 fps.

Today, at 1 PM, the folks at B&H Photo and Video are hosting a livestreamed panel with filmmakers and photographers to discuss the GH5 and its features. The panel includes filmmakers Jacki Huntington and Griffin Hammond, photographer and filmmaker David Flores, and YouTube content creator Lok Cheung. Panasonic LUMIX Luminary Team member Sean Robinson will also be on hand to answer user-submitted questions. If you submit a question on Twitter, you will be entered for a chance to win a GH5 camera. Just include the hashtag #BHPhotoLive.

four fan boys and a fan girl. i really need an objective look at this camera, and not continuous cooing over the specs. agree with the cinema5d review or not -- but they put some talking points out there that should be addressed.

Looks like Canon have responded with a very major update to 5D4. They must have had GH5 in mind for a while.

While the company line appears to be "M43 lens for M43 camera" on the web, shooting with a Metabones Speed Booster with 3rd party lenses on the GH4 is very common out in the Wild. The Canon to Panasonic contingent is an especially sizable part of the GH series user base. The panel are downplaying the benefits of an optional extra stop of light and a x1.3 crop factor. It's definitely worth the "hassle" on my GH2, so much so that it is a permanent fixture.
