4:2:2 10-bit Internal Recording
The LUMIX GH5S brings game changing internal 4:2:2 10-bit C4K/4K video recording. For example, 10-bit will render all the subtleties of graduated skies and sunsets without the banding so prone to 8-bit. The power of having film creation capabilities inside the camera sets a new precedent in guerilla style filmmaking. And you can record 4:2:2 10-bit to SD card whilst simultaneously feeding the live signal thru a full-size HDMI port* connected to an external monitor or recorder. 4:2:2 10-bit recording enables faithful color and grading fidelity with over a billion colors and four times the tonality of 8-bit to match professional intent. *C4K/4K 60p/50p is output only.
Cinema 4K 60p/50p* with Unlimited Recording Time
The original LUMIX GH5 made it possible to record 4K 60p/50p video on a DLSM camera. Now, to greatly extend your creative possibilities, the LUMIX GH5S takes this even further and, for the first time ever**, includes Cinema 4K (C4K: 4096 x 2160) 60p/50p* video recording . Moreover, there is no limit*** to the recording time, not even when shooting FHD or 4K video.
TC IN/OUT Terminal
The time code can be synchronized with an external device by using the bundled BNC conversion cable. This enables easier non-linear timeline editing of footage shot with multiple cameras.
LINE Input Supported
LINE input is supported by a 3.5mm mic jack. This makes it possible to input sounds from an external audio device, for more efficient video production.
Max. 10x Slow Motion Video — VFR (Variable Frame Rate)
To elevate video expressivity even further, a variety of effects are available on the LUMIX GH5S. The VFR lets you record overcranked / undercranked videos in C4K/4K (60-fps maximum 2.5x slower*) or FHD (240-fps maximum 10x slower*) quality. The minimum frame rate for quick motion effects video is 2-fps.
Pre-installed V-LogL Video Recording FunctionA neutral or flat logarithmic ("log") gamma curve captures wide dynamic range pictures ideal for color grading. Plus, a LUT Display function assists your exposure and helps to show directorial intent (e.g., use V-logL to Rec.709 LUT for an HDTV look).
Hybrid Log Gamma for 4K HDR Video
HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a mode to reproduce both the bright parts and dark parts of an image, making it look just as the human eyes see it. You can choose Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) in Photo Style.
