The rumored Panasonic GH5s camera was not supposed to be announced today


Today several readers were confused and asked me about the Panasonic GH5s announcement. When I broke the GH5s news, I reported that the launch date is expected to be either in January or February 2018. My personal guess is that the new camera will be announced either for the CES show in Las Vegas (January 9-12) or for the CP+ show in Japan (March 1-4). I am not sure who made up the December 8th announcement date, but it is obviously not correct. Here is a recap of what to expect in the new GH5s:

  • The Panasonic GH5s will be designed for low light performance similar to the Sony A7SII
  • The camera will have fewer megapixels and bigger pixels pitch compared to the 20.3MP Panasonic GH5 and it may use a 12MP or a 16MP sensor as 43addict suggested
  • State of the art video functions
  • Improved low light performance
  • The new camera is expected to start shipping at the end of February
  • The body design is expected to be similar to the GH5
  • Still not 100% sure if the actual name will be GH5s
  • Price: around $2,500
