Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GM5 features a 16 megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor and Venus Engine image processor to produce high-resolution images and Full HD 1080p video at 60/50 fps. The camera introduces a high-resolution electronic viewfinder to the GM series, enabling confident shot composition in a variety of environments. An integrated hotshoe is featured for using external flash units. Built-in wireless capabilities enable the GM5 to be remotely controlled from a linked mobile device and also supports image transfer to devices using the Panasonic Image App.
A wide array of focusing technologies are implemented in the camera to ensure fast and accurate focusing. The smart Contrast AF system exchanges signals between camera and lens at a maximum of 240 fps (with compatible lenses); especially useful when using the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5's high-speed burst shooting at 5.8 fps in full 16MP resolution, and up to 40 fps in with the electronic shutter. You'll also find convenient focusing technologies such as Face/Eye Detection AF, Low Light AF for focusing in dimly-lit (-4 EV) conditions, and Focus Peaking when focusing manually.
A Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5's 16 megapixel Micro Four Thirds Digital Live MOS sensor and Venus Engine image processor work together to produce high resolution imagery that exhibits a great deal of clarity, detail, and overall impressive image quality. The processing power affords heightened sensitivity to ISO 25600 with minimal noise for enhanced use in low-light conditions.
The 1,166k-dot viewfinder lets you frame and capture shots even in bright sunlight. Based on the Adobe RGB color space, the viewfinder faithfully reproduces the primary colors for more true-to-life hues, allowing you to accurate judge the colors of your scene.
When lights and noise from your camera could be distracting to a performer or audience, you can active the Silent Mode. This mode switches the shutter from mechanical to electronic, turns off all sounds, and deactivates the AF assist lamp and flash.
By exchanging digital signals between camera and lens at a maximum of 240 fps, the smart Contrast AF system is both fast and accurate. The camera also delivers high-speed burst shooting at 5.8 fps in 16-megapixel resolution, and a maximum of 40 fps with the electronic shutter.
Image output between the viewfinder and rear monitor is automatically switched by an integrated eye sensor. This same sensor also accommodates the Eye Sensor AF, which starts auto-focusing automatically by simply looking into the LVF, helping prevent missed shooting opportunities.
Focus Peaking can be enabled to show highlight around the in-focus edges, a feature useful when manually focusing in photo or video modes. The feature is also available in remote shooting when using a smartphone or tablet via Wi-Fi.
Wi-Fi connectivity lets you easily share images using the Panasonic Image App. By simply scanning the QR code displayed on the camera monitor with a smartphone or tablet, it also lets you use your mobile device as a remote controller for the camera. Additionally, a new Time function is ideal for sharing slow-shutter images like fireworks and nightscapes. Sharing while browsing is also made quicker, thanks to direct uploading capability.
