The Panasonic GH5 II is the follow-up to the GH5, but this is more a gentle development than a radical overhaul. Launched back in 2017, the Panasonic Lumix GH5 made quite a splash.

Panasonic is proud to introduce the LUMIX GH5M2, a new Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera that boasts outstanding video performance evolved from the renowned GH5. The LUMIX GH5M2 achieves C4K /4K 60p 4:2:0 10-bit unlimited video recording and can simultaneously output 4K 4:2:2 10-bit over HDMI.
The LUMIX GH5M2 is capable of wireless live streaming in FHD/60p via the simple-to-use LUMIX Sync smartphone app, or by connecting directly to a Wi-Fi router. In
addition, it will receive a future firmware update to add RTP/RTSP wired IP streaming.
The 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor with AR (Anti-Reflective) coating captures details cleanly and drives excellent lens performance. The image processor has also
been updated to use the latest high-speed and high-performance Venus Engine.
To achieve stable handheld shooting, the Body I.S. (Image Stabiliser) in the LUMIX GH5M2 is now even more advanced, making it possible to use a 6.5-stop slower shutter
speed. With the adoption of the latest algorithm developed for the S1H, video recording is smooth and stable even when the camera is in motion.
A 3.0-inch free-angle LCD with a 3:2 aspect ratio and high resolution of 1840K dots provides touch control. Compared to the GH5, the LCD features higher luminosity and
superior colour reproduction to ensure high visibility outdoors.
Wireless live streaming with minimal equipment
High-quality live streaming is possible both indoors and outdoors with minimal equipment: just the LUMIX GH5M2 and a smartphone with the LUMIX Sync app. In compliance with the RTMP/RTMPS protocol using the H.264 codec, a maximum resolution/framerate of FHD/60p at 16Mbps is supported. For wired live streaming, the dedicated LUMIX Webcam Software is available for free download.
High-quality video performance
The LUMIX GH Series features outstanding video performance for professional videography and the LUMIX GH5M2 is no exception, capable of unlimited video recording in a variety of settings. When shooting video, the GH5M2’s entire sensor area is used, enabling the user to record uncropped video from the original viewing angle of the lens. Video recording options are vast, offering internal recording up to 4K 60p and 4:2:2 10-bit 30p, or 4K/6K Anamorphic modes.
To deliver high dynamic range and a broad colour spectrum, V-Log L is pre-installed in the camera, making it easy to match the colour tone with footage recorded in the
S1H/S1’s V-Log and the GH5/GH5S’s V-Log L. V-Log L renders a very flat image while retaining all its colour information, which is a great benefit in post-production processing. For users who prefer to have a starting point for post-processing, there are 35 compatible conversion LUTs for VariCam cinema cameras available for free
download. Practical tools like a Waveform Monitor and V-Log View Assist are also part
of the GH5M2’s onboard video toolkit.
Like the S1H video flagship camera of the S Series, the LUMIX GH5M2 provides two types of Cinelike gamma presets in the Photo Style menu. These modes create impressive looks with warm skin tones or delicate nuances of light and shadow even without colour grading over V-Log footage. The Cinelike D2 preset gives priority to
dynamic range, while Cinelike V2 prioritizes contrast. L.Monochrome S and L.Classic Neo have also been added. All these presets are also available in Anamorphic mode.
In VFR (Variable Frame Rate) recording, C4K/4K 60fps, Anamorphic 50fps and FHD 180fps are available. AF can be set before starting VFR recording.
A reliable tool for professionals
Tough enough to withstand heavy field use, the LUMIX GH5M2’s full die-cast front/rear frame is composed of a magnesium alloy and the body is splash, dust, and freeze resistant* down to -10 degrees Celsius. The shutter unit is also durable for approximately 200,000 cycles.
To further support use outdoors, the camera boasts a new high-capacity 2200mAh battery (DMW-BLK22) that complies with USB PD (Power Delivery) and can be recharged via AC or USB. The LUMIX GH5M2 is equipped with a double SD memory card slot compatible with V90-classified, high-speed, high-capacity UHS-II cards for Relay, Backup and Allocation Recording.
With the advanced free-angle touch LCD, users can utilise the frame marker function to check the composition during recording in various common aspect ratios such as 16:9, 4:3, 1:1, 4:5, 5:4 and 9:16. The red recording frame indicator on the screen and in the EVF clearly signals whether the camera is recording, while a new blue indicator shows when the camera is streaming.
If you're looking for a well-built, lightweight mirrorless camera with excellent handling, a fantastic range of video shooting options and solid stills performance, the GH5 Mark II his well worth a look. The GH5 was already a great choice, and the tweaks here just make it all the more appealing.
Much of the GH5 II is the same or very similar, you get the same 20mp Micro Four Thirds sensor, with improved sensor-based 5-axis image stabilisation, combined with the lens' optical image stabilisation, which gives benefits for both stills photography and video recording.
It's probably safe to say that if you've got a GH5 already, there's not much reason to consider buying the second-generation model. Unless you could really do with those extra bitrates or wireless livestreaming, there's otherwise not a huge evolution here.
Panasonic upgrades one of its most popular cameras with the new Panasonic Lumix GH5 II. But without the headline grabbing specs some hoped for, are these improvements enough? Jon Devo takes a closer look.
The GH5M2 is capable of delivering a wide range of excellent video performance and supports untethered live streaming.
The mirrorless Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 II puts video features first, with more robust 4K recording than its predecessor and other sensible upgrades.
Updated: 2021-07-30 Launched in July 2021 , Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 II is a 20.0MP Pro Mirrorless camera with a Four Thirds (17.3 x 13 mm ) sized CMOS sensor, built-in Image Stabilization, weather sealed body, Fully articulated touch screen and Micro Four Thirds lens mount.
While it doesn’t make a dramatic upgrade on the GH5, the Panasonic Lumix GH5 II puts ticks in lots of boxes. It’s a very capable video camera and a competent stills camera, making it ideal for modern content creators who don’t need a higher resolution sensor.
I've been using this camera for abit now and it's quite simply amazing,the picture quality is unbelievable.it does take a little while to get used of the full functions of the camera if you are a novice photographer but has soon has you get the hand of it you won't believe the photos you snap.this...
I just got this camera as my first ever camera. And I love it. I recommend spending a few minutes reading or watching videos on how to use the camera. It really helped me. But after 30 min of doing that I was able to take nicer photos than I've ever have before. Would recommend!
After using a budget brand for a handful of years prior, it was time to upgrade and the Panasonic Lumix GH5 II Digital Camera with 12-60mm f3.5-5.6 lens was a natural choice. We required the flexibility of a range of features, with the reliability of a well-known brand.
This is my first professional camera as I have always used my phone and I was very excited when this arrived it takes amazing photos and the videos quality is amazing I have had so many compliments about this camera and the quality of the photos were outstanding.
This is my favouirte camera ever! It is of such a high quality with plenty of brilliant features. I used this to photograph an ice hockey game recently and the camera is of such a standard that it kept up with the fast moving players and puck. I was so impressed.
This is a well overdue upgrade to my Nikon d3100. The difference is night and day. The viewfinder is crystal clear, and my wife loves the fact it has a focus on it as she wears glasses. The clarity of the photos it takes are spectacular. The videos even more so.
The panasonic DC-GH5M2M, is a fantastic camera. Good weight to it , feels amazing to use, takes greatly detailed photographs. Also doubles as a video recorder and is wifi compatible. Perfect for those who love to take photographs with a real camera.
Now this is a great camera and all my friends are jealous I'm able to record my fiancÃ© beauty even more exact than before. I look like a pro, and the quality of my photos is now picture perfect. I love love love this camera. It makes me happy happy happy
