Panasonic has announced its latest Lumix camera capable of capturing in 4K.
The Lumix GH4 is the first interchangeable lens mirrorless camera of its kind able to shoot 4K video.
The GH4 has made it possible to record 4K at either 24 or 30 frames per second, as well as a bitrate output of up to 200Mbps – thanks to the addition of a 16.05MP Live MOS sensor and the latest Venus Engine IX.
A 16-megapixel resolution for still photos comes in equal to its predecessor the GH3. Much of the design is also the same with a magnesium frame, as well as splashproof and dustproof protection.
Panasonic has also introduced a new quad-core processor that can shoot up to 25,600 ISO and 12 frames per second, on top of improved color reproduction and a new Eye Detection autofocus system.
Other improved features include real-time image output to an external monitor in 10-bit 4:2:2 with the company’s new optional breakout box.
Panasonic claims its OLED electronic viewfinder now has higher resolution and greater visibility than previous versions.
Elsewhere, the GH4 comes with WI-Fi and NFC connectivity, as well as image sharing support. Remote shooting is also possible on a smartphone or tablet using the Image App.
Panasonic is yet to reveal the GH4’s full price and release date.
