Panasonic Lumix GH6 is here — impresses with new 25MP sensor and 10-bit 4K at up to 120 fps

Panasonic announced the GH6 last year, and we have been excitedly awaiting its arrival since. The Lumix line of cameras has been well-received thanks to the excellent photo-image quality and its video recording performance. Panasonic originally stated that the upcoming GH6 would shoot up to 10-bit 4:2:0 4K at 120fps, 10-bit 4:2:2 4K at 60fps, and 10-bit 5.7K at 60fps.

Featuring a new 25.2MP Micro Four Thirds sensor, with a high-speed readout, 5-axis IBIS, and the ability to shoot stills at a snappy 14 fps thanks to its new Venus Engine image processor. There is also a built-in fan to keep the unit cool and allow for unlimited recording time. The Panasonic GH6 is available for $2,199 for the body only or you can order it with the 12-60mm kit lens for $2,797.99 (a $400 savings on that lens).

The Lumix GH6 features a 3-inch flip-out touchscreen, with Panasonic’s depth from defocus, autofocus that AI-powered face, eye, and animal recognition. A few early pre-production reviews have mentioned less than spectacular autofocus performance in low-light situations when shooting stills but mostly when shooting video. This was a common complaint regarding the GH5, so it will certainly be one that we pay close attention to on the final production hardware and firmware.
