Since May, this year, the successor of the famous Panasonic GH3, the 4K-recording GH4 is available. It´s a true allrounder and bridges the gulf between consumer and professional video camera. Here, too, it is a DSLM camera with Micro FourThirds bayonet. The built-in Live-MOS-sensor comes with an effective resolution of 16 megapixels and records videos in 4K quality. This is equivalent to a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. The bitrate is about 200 Mbit and the colour sensing measures is 4:2:2 while offering 10 Bit colour depth. For storing this huge amount of data Panasonic uses the new UHS-Speed-Class 3 (U3) SD cards with a constant minimum datarate of 30 megabytes per second. Panasonic also uses the new DFD (Depth from Defocus)-technology which shortens the AF reaction time to 0.07 seconds. Another new feature is the OLED-viewfinder with 2.359.000 pixels and a contrast ratio of 10000:1. The new Quad-Core-CPU increases the performance of the fresh developed „Venus Engine“ processor. It allows you to take 12 pictures per second and reduces the well-known rolling shutter effect. Panasonics noise suppression systems allow extended ISOs from 100 up to 25.600. Further functions like zebra, focus peaking or the controls for the luminant area complete the offered functions for professional videorecording.
There are 21 LUMIX G lenses for a huge variety of opportunities and flexibility. Especially the HD-lenses are the perfect choice for ambitious video recording. The super wide-angle zoom lens Lumix G Vario H-F007014E F4, 0 / 7-14 mm is particularly suitable for underwater filming.
The high quality magnesium housing is dust- and splash-proof. But for making this high end camera water-proof you´ll need our special developed BS Kinetics underwater housing. It´s the proven model Gibson, which was also used for the predecessor, the GH3. It features a compact form factor and small weight. The maximum diving depth is about 80 meters and can be increased to 160 meters if it is wished. The most important functions of the camera can be controlled easily by using wheels, levers and buttons of the housing. The supplied handlebar offers perfect ergonomics and the optimal base for additional equipment like flashes and video lights for illuminating your motif.
