Posted by admin on August 5, 2017 under Panasonic 4K | Comments are off for this article

Panasonic announced the Lumix GH5, the first mirrorless camera that can record 4K-quality footage at 60 frames per second. An update to the highly lauded GH4, the first mirrorless camera to shoot in 4K, the GH5 captures both Full HD and 4K footage without the time limits normally posed by cameras. A new sensor with a 1.7 times faster signal readout, paired with a processor that’s 1.3 times faster than the predecessor’s, allows this video-centric camera to capture 4K in 60p/50p, Panasonic said. The GH5 will be able to capture video in MOV, MP4, AVCHD Progressive, and AVCHD formats. The point here, you will find it a painful experience to import and edit Panasonic GH5 4K footage in Adobe Premiere Pro CC, CS6 or CS5.
