a wide variety of digital interchangeable lenses including wide / standard /
telephoto zoom lenses, single focal length lenses, and macro or fisheye
lens to cover any shooting situations.
Uncompromising High Picture Quality
The DMC-GM5 boasts not just its outstandingly compact profile but its high functional performance for stunning picture quality. The large
16.00-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor achieves both high resolution and high sensitivity image recording with less noise. The Venus Engine features
its advanced noise reduction systems which helps produce clear, smooth image especially for the nighttime scenery. The combination of the Live MOS
Sensor and the Venus Engine achieves max. ISO25600.
Fast and Accurate AF
The Contrast AF system of DMC-GM5 excels in both speed and accuracy by exchanging
digital signals between the camera and the lens at a maximum 240 fps. The DMC-GM5 also
offers high-speed burst shooting at 5.8 fps in 16.00-megapixel resolution and a maximum
40 fps with an electronic shutter.
Low Light AF
Low Light AF makes it possible to focus on your subject more precisely in -4EV low-light
situations, which is as dark as a starry sky with no other light source.
Face / Eye Detection AF
In addition to the conventional Face Recognition AF, the DMC-GM5 incorporates Face /
Eye Detection AF which automatically sets focus right on the face or eye in face.
Pinpoint AF allows you to set magnification from 3x to 10x enlargement by 0.1x step. It
assists, for example, setting focus right on the pupil in an eye.
Focus Peaking function shows the peak of focus in MF and AF+MF mode. It is also
available in remote photo / video shooting with smartphone / tablet via Wi-Fi®.
Eye Sensor AF
The image output between the LVF and the rear monitor is automatically switched by the
eye sensor on the LVF. The same sensor also serves for the Eye Sensor AF, which
automatically starts auto focusing by just looking into the LVF to prevent missed shooting
This mode switches shutter from mechanical to electronic
and turns all sound (AF, operation) off while suppress
emission of AF assist lamp and flash with just a single
setting for special shooting occasions.
1920x 1080p Full-HD Video
in AVCHD / MP4
The DMC-GM5 features full-HD 1920 x 1080 50p smooth,
high quality video recording in AVCHD Progressive and
MP4 with stereo sound. The practical full-time AF and
tracking AF is available in video recording, too. The
cinema-like 24p video with the bit rate of max. 24 Mbps or
P/A/S/M mode provide richly expressive afterimage with
overwhelming image quality.
Creative Video Mode
The P/A/S/M mode lets you enjoy expressive video
recording by manually setting the aperture and shutter
speed. You can also add different artistic effects to your
videos by applying a Creative Control filter.
Snap Movie Mode
The new Snap Movie mode records video in designated
short periods of time (2/4/6/8 sec) for shooting “moving
photos.” This function also enables rack focusing and the
addition of fading effects (color in/out, black in/out, white
in/out). Those short video clips are easy to share using
"Panasonic Image App". You can also connect them in
any order you like and even to add music instead of recorded sound on the combined file later.
Time Lapse Shot
Leave the camera for stationary recording of subjects such as astronomical observation,
flowers coming into bloom or scudding clouds. The series of consequent images can be
combined in the camera to produce a time lapse video.
Stop Motion Animation
The Stop Motion Animation function enables producing a stop motion (stop frame) video
in camera with the pictures that are sequentially shot while moving the object by degrees.
This effect makes the object appear as if it is moving by itself.
Durable magnesium alloy frame brings ruggedness to the
compact size to provide flexible shooting.
Live Viewfinder / Touch Panel Rear Monitor
The DMC-GM5 features an LVF (Live View Finder) with 1,166k-dot equivalent resolution and approx. 100% color reproduction. It assures stable framing and superb
visibility even under strong sunlight. A 3-inch, approx. 921k-dot static-type touch monitor is also provided. The adoption of new monitor panel suppresses the reflection
of external light, and enables higher visibility even for sunny outdoor shooting. Attenuation of transmitting backlight is minimized to achieve a wide angle of view and
While inheriting the image quality and performance of
conventional DSLM cameras, the DMC-GM5 features a
well planned design, starting with the main circuit board
and shutter mechanism, to achieve superb compactness
and light weight. Changes to the main circuit board
provided space for the lens mount. And the spring-type
shutter mechanism, which was difficult to downsize, was
replaced by a motor mechanism for further reduction in
size and weight.
