Panasonic Announces the DMC-GH4 First Hybrid Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with Breathtaking 4K Cinematic Video
NYC, NY (PRWEB) February 06, 2014
Panasonic today introduced the GH4, the first hybrid mirrorless digital camera with breathtaking 4K cinematic video. The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GH4 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds digital camera is a true hybrid camera designed for both professional photo and video use.
The LUMIX GH4 builds on the legacy of the renowned LUMIX GH3’s image quality and world-class video capabilities. Now supporting 4K quality video, the Panasonic LUMIX GH4 allows photographers and cinematographers to explore above and beyond with in-camera creative options and astonishing focus control that sets the new standard for mirrorless hybrid photography.
When combined with one of the many LUMIX G Lenses or movie industry PL-mount cine lenses, the Panasonic GH4 provides the ultimate platform for video. Photographers will enjoy the controls and image quality expected of a professional-grade main system camera for still and hybrid photography. Both will enjoy the durability and lightweight portability that a modern mirrorless DSLM digital camera offers over legacy DSLR systems.
The 16.05-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor achieves high-quality, high-sensitivity image recording with its quick response. An approximately 50% higher speed signal readout suppresses the effect of a rolling shutter when using electronic shutter or recording video. The Live MOS Sensor delivers an expanded gradation range by a maximum 1/3 step at low ISOs. Superior noise reduction allows for exposures up to 60 minutes long.

With the Panasonic Image App, remote photo and video shooting is available with a compatible smartphone or tablet, and can easily embed geotag data in an image after shooting. Even if a smartphone/tablet is incompatible with NFC, you can still be easily connected to the camera by scanning the QR code displayed on the GH4’s monitor from a mobile device.
VFR (Variable Frame Rate) Time Lapse Shot/Stop Motion Animation
The VFR (Variable Frame Rate) enables Full-HD video recording with slow/fast motion such as 96 fps / 4x.
Selectable System Frequency
For the global business and professional user, the system frequency is flexible from 59.94Hz (23.98Hz) / 50.00Hz / 24.00Hz.
The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GH4 delivers RAW images in-camera. The color space setting (sRGB/AdobeRGB), white balance, exposure compensation, contrast, highlight/shadow, saturation, noise reduction, and sharpness or hue can be flexibly adjusted while LUMIX’ s Photo Style, Intelligent D-Range Control, and Intelligent Resolution can also be applied.
