Panasonic first teased the Lumix GH6 when it announced the GH5 II last year. The camera is now official despite some delay. It brings significant improvements in sensor, image processing, and stabilization. In this article, we will be discussing the specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Panasonic Lumix GH6 camera in Nepal.
Panasonic Lumix GH6 Overview:
Sensor and Image Processing
Let’s start with the image sensor. Here, the Lumix GH6 brings a new Micro Four Thirds CMOS sensor with a resolution of 25.2MP. That is 25% more pixels than on its predecessor. Panasonic has paired it with the new Venus Engine, which boasts twice the image processing capability. The new engine brings significant improvements in detail processing and noise reduction for images and videos.
Panasonic Lumix GH6 supports 14fps burst shooting with the focus locked (AFS) using the mechanical shutter and 75fps with the electronic shutter. Over on the video, it is the first in the Lumix series to support internal recording in Apple’s ProRes 422 HQ. It can even record in 4:2:2 10-bit C4K 60p (unlimited), 4:2:0 10-bit 4K120p, and 4:2:2 10-bit 1080p 240p (HFR). Likewise, it is also capable of 1080p 300fps in Variable Frame Rate (VFR).
