Panasonic Announces “Sensitive” Lumix GH5S
By Joseph Tepper, January 8, 2018 @ 05:22 PM (EST)

When DPG put the Panasonic Lumix GH5 to the test earlier this year, reviewer Alex Lindbloom was blown away by the mirrorless camera’s low-light performance—particularly in the cavernous cenotes of Mexico.

Now, Panasonic has announced an even more impressive low-light version—the GH5S. The “S” in the name refers to the cameras spectacular ISO sensitivity, which can reach 51,200 without extending past the native range. That makes the GH5S the most light-sensitive Panasonic camera to date.

The resolution is cut from 20.3MP to 10.2MP when shooting stills (14-bit RAW) to ensure superior low-light performance without too much noise. These specs—in addition to the internal 4K/60p video—make the GH5S a strong contender even for professional videographers.   

“When shooting in dark environments, videographers can now focus on filming that perfect shot as they no longer need to worry about noise which often results from having to use higher ISOs,” Panasonic writes.

At this time, we are unable to confirm if the GH5S will be compatible in existing GH5 housings. Check with your housing manufacturer for more information. The GH5S will be available February 2, 2018 with a price of $2,499 (body only).
