Panasonic released information about its newest product the Lumix GH4 last month. It had not yet released a lot of specific information regarding features, accessories and pricing . . . until now. This Lumix GH4 is a mirror-less camera with the capability to film videos with a 4K resolution reportedly at the cinematic 24fps standard.
One of the Panasonic Lumix GH4’s most touted features is its 16MP CMOS Micro Four Thirds sensor. It is also sports “high speed 49-area auto-focusing” for both videos and photographs. The camera body itself is made of a durable, sturdy magnesium alloy.
Additionally, the Lumix GH4 also has a sensitivity range of ISO 200-25,600. Critics also praise the Lumix’s impressive viewfinder for its 2.36M-dot OLED panel. Photography aficionados will be happy to hear that the PL mount cine lenses as well as Lumix G lenses will all be compatible with the new Panasonic Lumix GH4.
Panasonic is also marketing its YAGH audio/video interface unit which comes complete with an audio level display monitor, XLR monaural 2ch terminals and a 3G-SDI video output terminal with time code support for customers who consider themselves to be hardcore filmmakers. The camera’s body is ticketed at $1,700. The YAGH audio/video interface unit is available for an additional $2,000.
The Lumix GH4 and YAGH audio/video interface unit are both available for pre-order now on the company’s shopping website. The shipping date is currently set for some time in April. Online sources indicate a healthy early interest in this new state of the art photography equipment.
