First photographs of upcoming Panasonic GH6 leak forward of subsequent week’s announcement

Scheduled to be formally introduced subsequent week on the twenty first, photographs of the upcoming Panasonic GH6 have leaked slightly early. Two photographs have gotten out to date courtesy of Asobinet which present the entrance of the digicam in addition to what seems to probably be cooling vents. Whether or not or not it’s energetic cooled or not is clearly unknown, nevertheless it appears Panasonic is taking potential overheating points significantly.

Whereas there haven’t actually been any specs introduced (or leaked) but for the GH6, the data given in the course of the GH6 improvement announcement did counsel that it’s going to be a big improve over the GH5 (and GH5 Mark II), providing 5.7K video at as much as 60 frames per second in addition to 4K at 120fps. So, holding it cool will certainly be a precedence.

The pictures don’t present a lot of the digicam’s high view, though the shutter button is the same old black as a substitute of the pink “document” button we’ve come to affiliate with extra video-oriented cameras. This tells me that it in all probability has an analogous association up high to the GH5 with a typical shutter button for each images and video (and half-press to prefocus) in addition to a separate devoted begin/cease video recording button.

What’s fascinating, although, is that there’s a pink button on the entrance of the physique beneath the lens launch, suggesting that maybe it may need one other document button particularly focused in the direction of vloggers. This could make sense, provided that when the GH5 was launched, just about each vlogger on YouTube appeared to change to it. And… nicely, it’s one of many causes I personal a GH5, too.

Some commenters on social media have hypothesised that this would possibly imply the GH6 is focused extra in the direction of social media content material creators and never the “critical filmmakers” the GH5 was aimed toward, however that second leaked picture above exhibits a cine lens. Not precisely the sort of factor you’d often vlog with. I don’t assume the 2 goal markets are mutually unique anyway, but when that’s an additional document button on the entrance, it’s definitely going to make it attraction to vloggers.

All Panasonic have stated in regards to the GH6 to date is:

  • It’ll be introduced on February twenty first, 2021
  • It has a brand new high-speed sensor & new Venus engine “by no means been seen earlier than on a Lumix digicam”
  • 10-bit 4:2:2: DCI 4K 60p video with limitless document time
  • 10-bit 4K 120p HFR/VFR recording
  • 10-bit 5.7K 60p video
  • Goal value – $2,500(ish)

There don’t appear to have been every other leaks to nail down extra particular specs, however provided that the entire GH5 Mark II specs leaked two entire weeks forward of the GH5 Mark II announcement and OM Digital had its new OM-1 specs leaked 5 days earlier than the official announcement, it wouldn’t shock me if we noticed some come within the subsequent few days earlier than the official Panasonic announcement on the twenty first.

We’ll preserve you posted if we hear extra.
