Panasonic unveiled its new Lumix GH5S this week at CES 2018. It’s built for a low-light and video shooting with a 10.3MP Micro Four Thirds image sensor. It looks a lot like Panasonic’s version of Sony’s A7S product line.

Note the key features mostly highlight the video features and reinforces its position as a camera made for the video enthusiasts and pros. Nonetheless, it is still a full featured photography tool that captures 10.3MP RAW image files and up to 12fps. However, it’s worth noting that Panasonic did not include the sensor-shift stabilization inside the GH5S in order to avoid problems with sensor movement during video capture.
The Panasonic GH5S retails for $2499 and should be available in February. You can pre-order it and get the full spec list here at B&H Photo.
