Panasonic GH5S video features
To a stills photographer, this camera’s video specifications might not look particularly remarkable. It shoots 4K video, but so do many others, and it also shoots the slightly wider Cinema 4K (DCI 4K) format, which has a ratio of 17:9 rather than 16:9.
It can, however, shoot both at 50p/60p frame rates, which is altogether less common, and requires serious processing power, which inevitably comes at a price. Panasonic’s own LUMIX GH5 can shoot 4K UHD video at 50p/60p, but not in the wider Cinema 4K aspect ratio.

DCI and UHD 4K Video Recording
Specifically geared for video shooting, the GH5S features a versatile and capable range of video specs, including the ability to internally record DCI 4K at up to 60 fps and 150 Mbps with 4:2:0 8-bit Long GOP; 30 fps and 150 Mbps with 4:2:2 10-bit Long GOP; and 24 fps and 400 Mbps with 4:2:2 10-bit ALL-I. UHD 4K recording is also supported along with Full HD at up to 240 fps for slow-motion playback. A full-size HDMI port is present on the camera for high-quality output at 4:2:2 10-bit in all settings for use with external monitors and recorders.
