Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S


$3,799 (body only)

If you thought the Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 was video-centric, the follow-up, the GH5S, comes with more features - such as the ability to shoot DCI or UHD 4K footage at up to 60p. In other words, it can record very high-definition video.

Its 10.2-megapixel image sensor has a dual gain design. This means it has two read-out modes - one to maximise dynamic range and one to minimise image noise. It has bigger pixels for better low-light shooting.

It allows different mouse sensitivity settings of 400, 800, 1,600 and 3,200 dots-per-inch and does not need drivers.
