GENERAL

The DC GH5 was introduced by Panasonic in January 2017. It belongs to the Mirrorless Cameras category.

Panasonic is well-known and shouldn't require further introduction, please see our manufacturer's page for more digital cameras by Panasonic.

SENSOR

The DC GH5 features a CMOS sensor in Four Thirds size that has an area of approximately 17 x 13 mm² (0.68" x 0.51").

This infographic compares the DC GH5's sensor to other common formats:

Infographic: DC GH5 comparing sensor sizes

(The 1-Euro coin used for scale has a diameter of 23.25mm, slightly smaller than a US quarter.)

The DC GH5's image sensor has an effective resolution of around 20 megapixel. The resolution is above average and will be sufficient for the foreseeable future. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed in A2 size or larger, even if unwanted parts of the photo have to be cropped.

The Panasonic supports taking images in RAW. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computer, using software like Adobe Lightroom or Panasonic's RAW converter. This involves one extra processing step but almost always results in superior image quality. Some filters, like converting to monochrome (black and white) will only yield decent results when used with RAW images.

The DC GH5 features a mechanism for automatic sensor cleaning.

LENS

All compatible Micro Four Thirds (MFT) lenses can be mounted to the DC GH5.

Currently, approximately more than 80 Micro Four Thirds (MFT) lenses are available, not counting lenses by third-party manufacturers. Further lenses can be connected via suitable adapters.

VIEWFINDER

The DC GH5 uses an electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 3.68 megapixel, an excellent value for a viewfinder like this which makes the camera a joy to use.

The magnifcation is c. 0.76x, an excellent value for an electronic viewfinder.

The infographic illustrates the viewfinder magnification of the DC GH5. The black area represents a magnification of 1x, corresponding to natural size. The red frame indicates the largest viewfinder magnification in any digital camera on the market today (0.85x).

Tip: If the viewfinder image of the DC GH5 is fuzzy, us the little wheel next to the viewfinder to adjust the sharpness.

SENSITIVITY

The DC GH5's sensitivity goes from 100 ISO und 25600 ISO, a very useful and practical range.

METERING

The DC GH5 supports all common metering modes.

The Panasonic will also allow spot metering, a must for challenging motives.

AUTO FOCUS

The DC GH5's auto focus processor uses 225 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. when panning the camera).

Manual focus is also possible with the Panasonic, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.

FLASH

The DC GH5 doesn't feature a built-in flash. That is not unsusual in this camera category.

A flash or a trigger for remote flashes can be attached to the Panasonic's hotshoe.

DISPLAY
DC GH5 display and touch screen

The DC GH5 features a monitor with a diagonal of 75.00mm (3.0 in.) and a resolution of c. 1.62 megapixel. A resonable value that will make it easy to evaluate images directly in-camera.

The camera's display is articulated, a plus for selfies and other challenging situations.

The DC GH5's monitor can work as a touch screen, just like a smartphone. That can be very useful, for example to pick AF points, but keep in mind that touch screens usually don't work when wearing gloves.

VIDEO

When recording videos with the DC GH5, the highest supported resolution is 3840 x 2160 pixel, in other words 4K Video.

The camera features a connector for an external microphone, a neccessity for good video sound. A built-in mike will record everything in front and to the sides of the camera which is mostly not desired. Internal microphones also tend to record camera sounds like focus beeps.

CONNECTIVITY & WIRELESS

The DC GH5 has Wifi connectivity already built-in. Use Wifi to transfer images to a smartphone or computer and to remote control the camera. With NFC, camera and smartphone can be paired without the need for passwords.

Another option to transfer images to the smartphone is Bluetooth (Note: Bluetooth connections will not always transmit images or videos with full resolution.)

In situations where wireless won't work reliably, a wired connection can be used.

Connect the Panasonic to a monitor or TV set over HDMI.

USB 3.0 is already supported by the Panasonic. USB 3.0 greatly speeds up transferring images and videos to the computer.

What memory cards can be used with the Panasonic DC GH5?

The camera will accept all common SD HC and SD XC cards.

With an average image size of 8 megabytes (JPEG, fine) a 32 GByte memory card would hold up to 4000 images.

MISC. FUNCTIONS

Let's have a look at some other features of the Panasonic DC GH5:

The DC GH5 doesn't have a built-in GPS receiver. If you want to add coordinates to your photos, you'll have to do so in 3rd party software like Adobe Lightroom. However, with Wifi built-in, location data can also be added via a connected smartphone.

The DC GH5 features a built-in stabilizer. A plus when using legacy zooms or tele lenses without stabilizer.

A nice addition is the Panasonic's electronic level. The camera displays an indicator on the monitor that makes it super-easy to level the camera horizontally, very useful when doing architectural photography.

The camera has a built-in function to facilitate creating panoramas: While panning the Panasonic over the scene, the camera takes a sequence of images which are then automatically assembled to form a panorama.

The camera can create HDRs automatically. That saves you from manually creating sequences of images with variying exposure values.

The DC GH5 is environmentally sealed against dust and moisture; a very useful feature when you take the camera places.

BATTERY

The Panasonic DC GH5 works with a BLF19E LiIon battery. The battery lifetime is a generous 410 shots. Usually enough for a full day or more.

The battery can be charged over USB while in camera. Very useful, especially on vacation when most people bring a USB charger for their smartphone anyway.

DIMENSIONS

The Panasonic DC GH5's dimensions are 138.5 x 98.1 x 87.4mm³. (5.5" x 3.9" x 3.4"). That's the body only, without lens. The camera's weight is a reasonable 725 grams (23.4 oz.). Add to this the weight of the lens.

Our rating of the Panasonic DC GH5

When Panasonic released the GH4 in 2014 it became an instant success with videographers. 4K resolution with 24p cinematic mode in a compact package at a reasonable price point were an irresistible proposition.

The GH5 improves on the predecessor with support for 4K video at 60 frames per second. Full HD video can be recorded with up to 180 frames per second. A first in budget priced digital cameras is the GH5's support for 4:2:2 10 bit 4K video. Continuous drive for still photography with full resolution stands at 12 photos per second. The new model also adds USB 3.0 and a built-in image stabilizer. A worthy upgrade to an already excellent camera, the GH5 gets our unreserved recommendation.
