Panasonic has started Lumix GH5M2 digital mirrorless camera for 1.69.990 rupees. The camera is also offered as a package with the L-Kit for 2.14.990 rupees. The digital 20.3 megapixel live MOS sensor with AR (anti-reflective) coating is designed to capture details and increase the maximum performance of the lens. The camera’s image processor is also updated from that of the GH5 using the latest Venus engine.
According to the company, the new camera will have high-speed autofocus because it incorporates technology that detects specific subjects such as people and animals, including Canidae, Felidae, and birds. In the case of humans in particular, in addition to the eyes, face and body, the head is also recognized separately using real-time recognition technology. The body image stabilizer in the camera enables a shutter speed that is 6.5 f-stops longer for stable hand-held shots.
In addition to wired live streaming, the camera can perform wireless live streaming with the Lumix Sync application for smartphones. According to H.264 in the RTMP / RTMPS protocol, a maximum of FHD / 60p 16Mbps is supported. A special software program Lumix Webcam Software is available for download for wired live streaming. The company claims that the camera will support wired IP streaming (RTP / RTSP) with future firmware updates.
The 3.0-inch clearance angle LCD display in 3: 2 format with a high resolution of 1,840,000 pixels has touch controls. It offers a higher luminosity than the GH5 and is also said to have superior color rendering for good visibility outdoors. The camera is made of a fully die-cast magnesium alloy and is splash and dust protected. It is also claimed to be frost-resistant down to -10 degrees Celsius.
In terms of connectivity, the camera includes Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi 5 GHz / 2.4 GHz. Most of the accessories for the predecessor camera, the GH5, such as the XLR microphone adapter, the shutter remote control and the battery grip, can also be used with the new model.
