Panasonic Lumix GH5 M2 And Leica 12-60mm in More Detail
Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 Lens
This lens is a versatile standard zoom with bright aperture perfect for a number of subjects including dynamic landscapes, portraits, and low-light situations, thanks to brighter variable aperture. Image stabilisation compensates for blurring which also works with Dual I.S. Excellent quality Leica lens elements render beautiful colour and detail with the 20.3 megapixel sensor which has an anti reflective coating for rendering the best quality. Similarly well weather sealed as the camera body, with a rugged, dust, and splash-proof design which is also freeze-proof down to -10C for those colder shoots.
Content Creator Hybrid Camera
As with all Lumix cameras the GH5 M2 is designed for content creators. To this end it features a fully articulating, high resolution touch control LCD, 20.3 Megapixel micro four thirds sensor, simple live streaming with minimal equipment as well as numerous video recording options. Upcoming firmware updates will deliver users free of charge updates for RTP/RTSP wired IP streaming, USB Tethering and more.
High quality video performance
Professional videographers raved about the previous GH5 model and the updated GH5 mark II is set to continue this trend. The entire sensor is used when shooting video, enabling the user to record uncropped video from the original viewing angle of the lens. Numerous recording options offer internal recording up to 4K 60p and 4:2:2 10-bit 30p, or 4K/6K Anamorphic modes.
V-Log L comes pre-installed, making it easy to match colour tones with footage recorded in other Lumix cameras. There are 35 compatible conversion LUTs for VariCam cinema cameras available for free download for this who prefer to have a starting point for colour grading. A Waveform Monitor and V-Log View Assist are part of the GH5M2’s on-board video toolkit.
The Photo Style menu provides two Cine-like gamma presets with warm skin tones and delicate luminosity nuances without colour grading over V-Log footage.
AF can be set before starting VFR recording in C4K/4K 60fps, Anamorphic 50fps and FHD 180fps.
Wireless live streaming
All you need is a smartphone with the LUMIX Sync app for wireless live-streaming with the GH5 Mark II. A maximum resolution/frame rate of FHD/60p at 16Mbps is supported using the H.264 codec. For wired live streaming, the dedicated LUMIX Webcam Software is available for free download. See our blog post here about How to use a camera for live streaming which also has links to Panasonic’s downloads.
Durable design for professional use
The Lumix GH5M2 has a full die-cast front and rear frame made of magnesium alloy and the body is splash, dust, and freeze resistant down to -10C degrees. The shutter unit provides a durable lifespan of approximately 200,000 cycles.
The updated camera uses the new high-capacity 2200mAh battery DMW-BLK22 that complies with USB PD (Power Delivery) and can be recharged via AC or USB. The camera is also equipped with a double SD memory card slot compatible with V90-classified, high-speed, high-capacity UHS-II cards for Relay, Backup and Allocation Recording.
Huge Micro Four Thirds Ecosystem
With Panasonic’s release of several excellent full frame cameras some users voiced concern about the micro four thirds ecosystem. The mark II camera reinforces commitment to the MFT system and we carry around 100 micro four thirds lenses from several manufacturers to support new Lumix cameras. The GH5 M2 body only can also be purchased and is also available as another kit option in the GH5 M2 With Lumix G Vario 12-60mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS Lens.
