Panasonic DC-GH5 4K Camera with audio adapter, Matte Box and Follow Focus

Panasonic DC-GH5 Digital SLR is a true hybrid camera designed to shoot 4k, 1080p and stills all onto SD cards. This large chip digital camera provides superb quality 4k and 1080p video with a shallow depth of field similar to film, without the aliasing, audio or design problems typical of a DSLR. Provides superb image quality comparable with much more expensive digital cameras. Panasonics advanced sensor without an optical low pass filter combined with their Venus engine processor provide very sharp and natural looking images without resorting to artificial edge enhancement. Provides Cinema 4k 4096 x 2160 (1.90 aspect ratio) and UHD 4k 3840 x 2160 4:2:2 10 bit at bit rates up to 400Mbps. Also shoots Full HD 1920 x 1080 4:2:2 10 bit up to 200Mbps. All bit rates record to internal SD cards. Full recording specs are at end of this equipment list. All of the above are available as MP4 or MOV files for easy editing. Can also shoot AVCHD for very long record times and good quality. Variable frame rates up to 60 fps are available in 4k and 180fps in HD. Excellent low light performance makes this camera great for night exteriors or any low light situation. Top mounted audio unit makes audio recording easy and includes XLR audio inputs with manual level controls with switchable phantom power. Camera has 2 card slots and a full sized HDMI output switchable for 4k or 1080p for compatibility with any HD monitor. Built in 5 axis image stabilization provides smoother hand held shots with any lens. Also features a high resolution OLED viewfinder and LCD flip out screen, variable ISO and white balance, color bars, zebras, waveform monitor and more. Camera has various gamma settings with adjustable contrast, saturation and hue to create different looks including Cine Like V and Cine Like D. I currently offer 7 different “looks” plus V-log and Hybrid Log Gamma. V-log features a very flat gamma curve and provides the biggest tonal range the camera can offer, about 12 stops. It is ideal for post production color grading and shooting for HDR. Hybrid log gamma is great for shooting programs that will be finished in both standard Rec. 709 and Rec. 2020 and for shooting for the upcoming ATSC 3.0 broadcast standard that uses HLG. The GH5 is also an excellent still camera that can store still to one card and video to another. Manual focus Nikon lenses from the 70s and 80s provide cinema lens quality without the high cost. Excellent for any project that needs superb quality 4k or 1080p video and stills with a shallow depth of field at a affordable price.

It also has a APSC (super 35 mode) that delivers 18 megapixels (3×2) or 15 megapixels (16×9). Shoots JPEG, Compressed Raw, or Uncompressed RAW or both. On the video side the A7r2 shoots 4k XAVC S video at 24 or 30P at 60 or 100Mbps. It also shoot 1080P XAVC S video at 24P, 30P, 60P or 120P at 50 Mbps.

Like the GH5 many different “looks” can be set in camera. Includes Sony’s excellent Cine 4 look which is very natural with excellent highlight and shadow detail right out of the camera and Slog2 if you want to do your color grading in post.
