Read our full review of the new Panasonic Lumix GH5S, the Micro Four Thirds camera designed for low-light video and stills.

Panasonic Lumix GH5S Hands-On Review


We go hands-on with the new Panasonic Lumix GH5S, and post sample photos from the new Micro Four Thirds camera.

The difference between the two ISO modes (Low and High) allows the camera to give a better low-light performance, and a wider usable ISO range, for both stills photography and video. However, it's likely that the area where users of this camera are...

Panasonic’s GH5s is perfect for video shooters and no one else


Panasonic's GH5s mirrorless camera sets a new standard for mirrorless video. The multi-aspect sensor enables high-quality, 10-bit Cinema 4K video with a wider field of view than the GH5, while offering much-improved low-light shooting. It's not ideal...

Best 4K video quality of any mirrorless camera ; Excellent low-light capability ; Handles very well for video and photography

Low-resolution sensor for photos ; No in-body optical stabilization ; Lack of phase-detect autofocus

Panasonic Lumix GH5S hands-on review


The GH5S is a fantastic camera for a specific user, but the standard GH5 is still the hybrid photo/video king.

Video-focused 10.2MP, multi-aspect sensor ; Waveform, vectorscope displays ; Dual native ISO ; DCI 4K at 60 fps ; Time code in/out

No image stabilization ; More expensive than GH5

Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S Review


The Panasonic GH5S is best understood as an even more video-centric variant of the GH5. We've tested it in a range of circumstances to see whether the video improvements are worth the loss of stabilization.

Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S


The Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S is a new version of the GH5 with a 10.2MP sensor that's built for 4K video and native dual ISO to curb noise when shooting in dim light.

Native 4K sensor and dual native ISO for excellent low-light video quality. Same build quality as GH5. Dual card slots. Vari-angle touch LCD. Big, sharp EVF. 14-bit Raw imaging V-Log L and HLG included.

Omits in-body stabilization. 10.2MP sensor not ideal for imaging. No built-in flash. Pricey.

Bottom Line: The Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S is a new version of the GH5 with a 10.2MP sensor that's built for 4K video and native dual ISO to curb noise when shooting in dim light.
