Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi® 5GHz
Panasonic's LUMIX Image App for Android / iOS through Bluetooth 4.2 (Low Energy) enables remote shutter release, and video record Start / Stop. Plus this full-time connection between the camera and mobile device consumes less energy. After shooting, it automatically switches to a fast Wi-Fi 5GHz (IEEE802.11ac) connection to transfer data to your mobile device of JPEG and RAW files.

DMW-BGGH5 Battery Grip
By using two batteries—one in the camera and the other in the grip*—exclusively designed for the GH5 and GH5s, the optional DMW-BGGH5 doubles the battery life for extended shooting. It also makes gripping more comfortable during vertical shooting. Exclusively designed for the LUMIX GH5s, the DMW-BGGH5 perfectly matches the camera, boasting splash/dust/freeze-proof rugged design with a joystick controller.

DMW-XLR1 Microphone
The optional DMW-XLR1 enables high-grade stereo recording with an attached XLR microphone (2 channels — left and right) for professional video production. High-res sound recording* at 96kHz/24bit is also selectable. The DMW-XLR1 features an easy-to-use design with convenient physical switches / dials. The DC power is supplied via the cameras shoe connector.

The Highest Video Quality in LUMIX History
Welcome to a new generation of LUMIX GH video performance. Designed exclusively for the LUMIX GH5S, the new Digital Live MOS sensor offers 10.28 effective megapixels and a significantly higher photoreceptive surface per pixel, delivering an ultra-wide dynamic range.

Dual Native ISO, a technology found in broadcast video cameras, enables the use of 400 & 2,500 ISO as base points to raise the highest normal ISO setting of 51,200, and an extension to 204,800 ISO. This technology provides ultra-sensitive video capture with impressively low noise.

Exceptional low-light performance is a key capacity for professional videography, and you’ll enjoy this and much more with the new LUMIX GH5s!

"LUMIX Tether" Camera Control PC Software
The LUMIX GH5s allows tethered shooting via USB with "LUMIX Tether" PC software. It enables camera control and shooting while checking the image on a large PC screen. Plus it supports both video and 4K PHOTO, to greatly assists professional workflows in commercial photoshoots.

Dual SD Card Slots
The LUMIX GH5s is equipped with dual SD card slots for larger capacity recording and efficient file arrangement. Relay mode allows you to swap a full card out for an empty card so you can virtually endlessly. Backup mode allows you to record continuously on one card, while you start and stop recording on the other card. Simultaneous record mode duplicates your recording on both cards. Both slots are compatible with high-speed, high-capacity UHS-II Video Speed Class 60 cards for high bitrate video recording.

4K 60-fps Burst
Shoot with extended burst, then choose and extract the exact frames you want to keep. The ultrahigh-speed 4K PHOTO mode at 60-fps with approximately 8-megapixels resolution freezes even faster motion which is simply not possible in conventional cameras. The LUMIX GH5s truly does make moments unmissable.

Precise Focusing Even in -5EV Situations
Renowned LUMIX low-light AF performance has evolved to enable shooting down to the level of -5EV. This allows you to focus precisely even under the lighting of a starlit sky, ideal for shooting nighttime nature scenes and documentaries.

Professional Worldwide Versatility
The LUMIX GH5s supports a wide range of professional applications, such as web, TV, DVD/Blu-ray and digital cinema production. It features a plethora of video formats and bitrates to record at up to 400Mbps (ALL-Intra) or 150Mbps (LongGOP (IPB Compression)).

The system frequency can be selected from 59.94Hz (NTSC), 50.00Hz (PAL), or 24.00Hz (CINEMA).

Operation is also enhanced by three video control panels — Shutter Duration/ISO, Angle/ISO, or Shutter Duration/dB. This provides solid support for professional worldwide video production.

Max.10x Slow Motion Video VFR
The VFR (Variable Frame Rate) lets you record videos with dramatic slow motion or unique quick motion in C4K/4K (60-fps maximum 2.5x slower*) or Full HD (240-fps maximum 10x slower*) quality.

C4K/4K 60p/50p Smooth Quality Video
The LUMIX GH5s takes professional shooting performance to another level with high-precision, silky smooth 4K 60p/50p (Cinema 4K: 4096 x 2160 / QFHD 4K: 3840 x 2160 / MOV or MP4) video recording capability.

Faster frame rates mean excellent motion compensation plus you can slow down footage inside your video editing timeline without losing detail. You also achieve perfect panning control and a suppression of the rolling shutter effect as seen in lesser frame rates.

Perfect focal length can also be achieved as the LUMIX GH5s features a multiple aspect ratio recording. There's also no recording duration limit so you can go beyond 30 minutes in all record settings.

Splash/Dust/Freezeproof Rugged Design
The LUMIX GH5s is built like a tank to withstand heavy use. It is freezeproof down to -10F degrees in addition to splash / dustproof construction thanks to weather sealing on every joint, dial, and button. A magnesium alloy full-diecast armour frame makes the body lightweight yet durable while bringing ruggedness to the compact size. This camera can go everywhere you can.

TC IN/OUT Terminal
The time code can be synchronized with an external device by using the bundled BNC conversion cable. This enables more precise image production for movies and documentaries, where multiple cameras are essential.

LINE Input Supported
LINE input is supported by Φ3.5mm mic jack. This makes it possible to input sounds from an external audio device, for more efficient video production.

Ultrahigh-speed Focusing and 14-bit RAW Burst
Capture even the fastest moving action thanks to DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology. It instantly calculates the distance to the subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels, and achieves ultrahigh-speed AF and 8-fps burst shooting with AFC. 12-fps burst shooting with AFS is also available.

The LUMIX GH5s also lets you select the 14-bit RAW file format. Equipped with rich color and smooth gradation from approximately 64 times the color information of 12-bit RAW, maximum 7-fps (AFC) / 11-fps (AFS) burst shooting greatly expands your range of creativity.

Useful Functions for Nighttime Shooting
Night Mode

When shooting dark scenes like starry skies, this mode suppresses the stimulation of the eyes that are accustomed to the dark. The LVF and rear monitor can be set separately.

Live View Boost
The display is brightened by lowering the frame rate and increasing the gain. This lets you shoot while framing, even in extremely dark situations.

MF Assist 20x
The MF Assist display has been enlarged up to 20x. Accurate focusing is possible even on tiny objects like stars.

A Large High-Resolution Rear Monitor
A large 3.2-inch LCD monitor (1,620k-dot approx..) provides a crisp live view and high visibility even in sunny shooting conditions. It adopts RGBW (Red, Green, Blue, White) pixel structure to feature even higher visibility in bright sun.

The tilt/swivel capability gives you the freedom to change perspective while maintaining easy operation and full image control. The monitor has Touch Focus control to allow instant focus by simply touching the subject on the screen. Plus, with Touch Shutter control you can point your finger at where you want the focus to be and it will release the shutter automatically.

Pre-installed V-LogL Video Recording Function
A 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-Log to Rec.709 LUT for an HDTV look).

Hybrid Log Gamma for 4K HDR Video
HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a mode to reproduces both the bright parts and dark parts of an image, making it look just as the human eyes sees it. You can choose Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) in Photo Style.

Venus Engine Beauty
The marriage of a new Digital Live MOS sensor with the beautiful Venus Engine reproduces extraordinary color detail and natural texture expression.

Multipixel Luminance Generation and Intelligent Detail Processing render intense brightness and contrast. The Three-Dimensional Color Control zings with rich colors from dark to bright shades and high-precision Multi-Process NR makes your images pop even at high ISO sensitivity settings.
