The field of panda research is still full of many mysteries. Cutting-edge technology is needed to advance research. A mother panda’s labor pains can last 6 to 7 hours and it’s extremely difficult to capture the moment of birth. In addition, a mother panda who has just given birth is very sensitive to her environment and the behavior of people around her. Because the GH5 enables long recordings, we were able to capture the long birthing process uncut. Being able to turn off the shutter sound also helped us to shoot post-birth scenes without disturbing the mother panda. The GH5 continues to help us in providing invaluable data for our research.
