Empowering Innovative Expression with the LUMIX GH6

HFR (high frame rate)

With the recent trend of slow motion, the GH6 features High Frame Rate recording in C4K 10-bit 120p for impressive slow motion ramping effects with simultaneous audio recording and continuous auto focus.

For Full HD productions, low compression 10-bit 200p ALL - Intra recording is possible to see every tiny detail beyond what the naked eye can see.

Filmmakers will appreciate the internal 5.7K 10-bit 60p unlimited recording and the flexibility in editing with the ability to re-frame, zoom and pan while also speed ramping in a 4K timeline.

・Maximum output of sensor is 60fps when Dynamic Range Boost is set to ON.

VFR (variable frame rate)

Variable Frame Rate mode enables recording of both high and low frame rates and with playback in slow or fast motion. This offers low hassle slow motion without requiring additional software for slowing playback.

12.5x super slow-motion (FHD 24p/300fps) 10-bit recording is available.  The LUMIX GH6 lets you easily overcrank or undercrank your video while shooting giving creative control.  With quick motion up to 60x (C4K/4K/FHD 60p/1fps) time-lapse without the need to capture individual photos.

・Maximum output of sensor is 60fps when Dynamic Range Boost is set to ON.

Anamorphic recording

Anamorphic recording

The GH6 further advances Panasonic's support for anamorphic film with the ability to capture glorious full sensor (4:3) 5.8K anamorphic. Cropped area 4:3 is also available for 48p recording for slow motion effects. Both In-camera Desqueezed display and external output improve the monitoring experience.

Body I.S also supports anamorphic lenses further expanding the possibilities for low impact small rigged anamorphic filmmaking without micro jitters associated with shooting handheld.

The LUMIX G series’ largest dynamic range

The LUMIX G series’ largest dynamic range

Rethink what is possible with a Micro Four Thirds sensor. This new sensor's wide dynamic range of 13+ stops, makes capturing scenes easier than ever before. Users will appreciate the inclusion of full V-Log (Varicam Log) and the colour science that it offers for lifelike skin tones and wide dynamic range.

Shooting and monitoring LOG is made easy by installing custom and standard LUTs in either .CUBE or VLT format.

Dynamic Range Boost Mode

Dynamic Range Boost Mode

Dynamic Range Boost mode is included offering impressive improvement in dynamic range for harsh lighting situations. This process is known as SE HDR (Single Exposure High Dynamic Range). SE HDR captures both a high and low ISO image at the same time and then combines both images giving increased details in the shadows without the artifacts of conventional multiple exposure HDR. This mode is available in both HLG & V-Log recording modes.

A LUMIX first: 4 channel audio recording

A LUMIX first: 4 channel audio recording

The LUMIX GH6 delivers improved audio recording performance, with 4ch 48kHz or 96kHz 24-bit recording possible* when an XLR microphone adaptor DMW-XLR1 (sold separately) is attached. This gives greater flexibility when shooting outdoors, where multiple audio sources are present, or when recording backup audio.

The GH6 also supports 2ch 48kHz 24-bit recording with the built-in mic and 2ch 96kHz 24-bit high-resolution recording* with an external mic (sold separately).

*MOV and ProRes only.

In-Camera Time-lapse Creation

In-Camera Time-lapse Creation

Time-lapse mode now features a new calculator that makes shooting even easier. The mode calculates values such as the required frames for the desired output video duration, and the ability to capture flicker free "holy grail" day to night time-lapses with automatic exposure leveling. 4K 50p/60p videos can be created once the time-lapse has been completed, making it quick and easy to create stunning time-lapses without requiring a computer.

Enlarged live display

Enlarged live display

Supported by the new engine, the GH6 is capable of displaying an enlarged preview of the video during recording, making it easier to continuously confirm precise focus throughout a shot, handy when shooting with shallow DOF (depth of field).

Cine-style clip naming

Cine-style clip naming

During multi-camera shoots it can be difficult to manage files with cameras that utilise conventional file naming formats, like those used by photography focused cameras. LUMIX now offers CINE style naming options such as camera index, reel number, clip number, date and other information in the file name.

Firmware Version 2.0 / 2.2 / 2.3

RAW Video Data Output

RAW Video Data Output

The firmware update enables the output of maximum 5.7K 59.94p (5728x3024, 17:9) , C4K 119.88p (4096x2160, 17:9), 5.8K 29.97p (5760x4320, 4:3) and 4.4K (4352x3264, 4:3) 12-bit RAW video data over HDMI to be recorded as ProRes RAW on ATOMOS NINJA V and NINJA V+ devices.* The Blackmagic RAW can also be recorded on Video Assist 12G HDR.*

*The firmware version 2.0 or later. ・Please refer to the ATOMOS website for the information on the corresponding firmware version of ATOMOS Ninja V+ or ATOMOS Ninja V. ・Software that supports ProRes RAW is required to edit RAW video recorded with ATOMOS Ninja V+ or ATOMOS Ninja V. Apply the LUT (Look up table) available on the following customer supports site to make the same color grading as V-Log/V-Gamut https://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/dsc/download/lut/s1h_raw_lut/ ・All functions may not be available depending on the situation.
**The firmware version 2.3 or later. ・DaVinci Resolve or DaVinci Resolve Studio is required to play back and DaVinci Resolve Studio to edit Blackmagic RAW data. ・Please refer to the Blackmagic Design website for the information on the corresponding firmware version of Blackmagic Video Assist 5” 12G HDR and Blackmagic Video Assist 7” 12G HDR. ・All functions may not be available depending on the situation. ・When recording in 4K 120p/100p or 5.7K 60p/50p, constant bitrate 5:1 or less is recommended for SSD recording and 8:1 or less for SD card recording.

A LUMIX first: Apple ProRes codec video

A LUMIX first: Apple ProRes codec video

Using a CFexpress Type B card (MOV, 5.7K, 5728x3024, 29.97p/25.00p/24.00p), you can internally record ProRes 422 HQ and ProRes 422 codec videos, the professional industry standard, which deliver high image quality at low compression. This significantly reduces the load on the computer during post-production and allows NLE (non-linear editing) without transcoding, streamlining your workflow from start to finish.

•Apple and ProRes are trademarks or registered trademarks of Apple Inc. in the United States and/or other countries.

Direct recording to USB-SSD

Direct recording to USB-SSD

With the firmware version 2.2, recording and playback is supported using an external SSD via USB. In addition, the ability to record Apple ProRes 422 HQ (maximum 1.9Gbps) and 4:2:2 10-bit All-Intra directly to SSDs, which combine portability and high capacity has improved efficiency in data backup and post-processing.

・A firmware update to version 2.3, an AC Adaptor DMW-AC10 (optional) and DC Coupler DMW-DCC17 (optional) are required to record HFR/VFR video of 61fps or higher on a USB-SSD. ・It is not possible to record video and photo on the SD card or CFexpress card simultaneously while recording it on the external SSD. ・Use an external SSD no more than 2 TB in size that is compatible with USB Type-C. We recommend using an external SSD whose operation has been confirmed by Panasonic. Note beforehand that this is not a guarantee of operation on all devices. ・Latest information on the external SSDs will be available at the following support site at the same time as firmware release: https://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/dsc/connect/index.htm
