Panasonic GH5s camera rumored to be announced in the next 1-2 months


Panasonic is rumored to announce a new MFT camera that could be called Panasonic GH5s (not 100% sure about the actual model name). The possible launch date is either in January or February 2018. The Panasonic GH5s is rumored to be an "ultra" video oriented low-light version of the GH5. The only details I was told are: state of the art video functions, improved low light performance and a higher launch price compared to the GH5. The current Panasonic GH5 was announced in January 2017 and is currently selling for $1,997.99.

Update - interestingly enough, Adorama currently has a listing for a Panasonic Lumix DC-GH29 mirrorless camera:


Maybe this is the placeholder for the rumored Panasonic GH5s?

    WTF. i just bought my gh5,

    • It’s just a rumor 🙂

    • Jeffry De Meyer

      You do not have to buy a new camera when a new one is released.

      • Duncan Dimanche

        well you shouldn’t buy an old one when a new one and better one is released…

        • But that’s exactly the purchasing strategy of the ‘late adopters’ – always stay a generation behind the ‘bleeding edge’ and pick up mint samples of the previous generation for 2/3 of new cost.

            …and all the bugs ironed out…

    Will it come with the highly high mp count of 16mp? lol

  • Eno

    I just hope the new GH5s (or whatever the name) will have a new sensor
    tech and at least 20 MP, going down to 12 MP won’t be so interesting
    IMO. Anyway, I look forward to this if it also has enough MP for shooting stills with it. 🙂

    • Yes, this will be an interesting development.

    • Duncan Dimanche

      I don’t see how they would do that without lowering the resolution (hint : A7s series)

      I would love to get a 12mpx sensor with some 4k downsampling to get super sharp images like we do on the A6500

      • Eno

        From ~ 12 MP 4/3 sensor you get a 1:1 4K image in 16/9 and no room for any resizing.

        • Duncan Dimanche

          Ohhhh that’s right ! I forgot about that damn aspect ratio !

          Oh well… so we might not have a 12mpx 4/3 then

  • Jeffry De Meyer

    Will it be tuned to sacrifice quality at base iso or will it be the bsi

  • CG462

    You posted this 5 hours before 43 Rumors did. Just pointing that out for the people who come on here and complain about you not giving them credit.

    • Duncan Dimanche

      haha 😉

    • No need to point it out, this has been going on for years. I have send many emails and nothing has changed.

  • raziel28

    $9,997.99?

    • It’s a placeholder probably

      • Maybe. Given the trend in pricing for the ‘premium’ m43 bodies, maybe not.

  • Jeffry De Meyer

    I highly doubt they are going to be putting a new class of sensor in a flagship camera

  • Cliff

    Guys, the current GH5 uses a Sony EXMOR IMX272 image sensor. Its very likely that Panasonic will buy Sony again and use the new Sony Starvis IMX294 sensor. Just Google them. DCI 4k, 10bit at 120fps.
