The flagship Panasonic GH6 is a mirrorless video powerhouse. The GH series is renowned for combining professional-level video with convenience and portability. The GH6 builds on that concept with a new 25 megapixel Micro 4/3 sensor that provides 5.7K30p and 4K60p video with ProRes recording. Additional features include improved image stabilization, and higher resolution EVF and LCD monitors.

- Pre-Installed V-Log with 13 stops of dynamic range
- Dual I.S. 2 for 7.5 stops of stabilization.
- 100 megapixel handheld High Res Shot mode
- 1.84 million dot variable angle touchscreen LCD
- CFexpress Type B & UHS-II SD card slots
New 25.2MP sensor
The LUMIX GH6 features the first Micro Four Thirds™ system standard 25.2-megapixel Live MOS sensor. With no low-pass filter, its design allows for both more pixels and higher resolution, for ultra-realistic detail. Its higher readout speed delivers C4K/4K 120p video recording and 75-frames-per-second burst shooting using the electronic shutter while also minimizing rolling shutter distortion.
New Venus Engine
The new Venus Engine delivers approximately twice the processing power as before, enabling high-speed processing of the new sensor's higher pixel counts and higher-resolution, higher-bit-rate video. Image quality performance is also greatly improved. New Intelligent Detail Processing offers higher resolution, and new 2D and high-performance 3D Noise Reduction (for videos) optimize noise reduction. The result is natural, 3D-like images with minimal noise even at high sensitivity. High-precision Dual 3D Color Control achieves improved color reproduction (brightness, saturation, and hue), resulting in more faithful and richer color expression.
Unlimited 4:2:2 10-bit C4K/4K 60p/50p video recording time
The first LUMIX to offer 4:2:2 10-bit C4K/4K 60p/50p internal recording, the GH6 delivers unlimited recording time* when used at the recommended operating temperature**. Ideal for small production teams and in demanding conditions where mobility and high-quality are a must. Also allows for simultaneous internal recording and external recording via HDMI output.
*Under the guaranteed operating environment. When using a battery. The recording time depends on the capacity of the battery and the recording media.
･Corresponding to 4K (4096×2160) as defined by Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI).
･CFexpress card or an SD memory card with Video Speed Class 90 is required.
HFR/VFR 10-bit recording
High-resolution slow-motion recording, recently gaining popularity in video production, is now made possible using C4K/4K 10-bit 120p/100p HFR (high-frame-rate) video recording with audio. The LUMIX GH6 also offers a wide range of 10-bit ALL-Intra recording modes for high-end editing, so you can shoot FHD 240p/200p HFR and FHD 240fps VFR (variable frame rate) video. With VFR you can record up to 12.5x super slow-motion video (FHD 10-bit 24p/300fps).
5.7K 10-bit 60p/50p recording
With 5.7K (5728x3024) 4:2:0 10-bit 60p/50p (17:9) and 5.8K (5760x4320) 30p/25p/24p 4:2:0 10-bit anamorphic (4:3) modes, the LUMIX GH6 offers higher resolution and higher bit rates than ever before, and delivers the latest in high image quality, versatility, and expressive range needed for film, TV, and all types of video production.
A LUMIX first: Apple ProRes codec video
Using a CFexpress Type B card (MOV, 5.7K, 5728x3024, 29.97p/25.00p/24.00p), you can internally record ProRes 422 HQ and ProRes 422 codec videos, the professional industry standard, which deliver high image quality at low compression. This significantly reduces the load on the computer during post-production and allows NLE (non-linear editing) without transcoding, streamlining your workflow from start to finish.
7.5-stop Dual I.S. 2 (Image Stabilizer)
5-axis Dual I.S. 2 (Image Stabilizer) combines control of the Body I.S. and Lens O.I.S. to offer 7.5 stops’ worth of correction.*
*Based on the CIPA standard [Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=140mm (35mm camera equivalent f=280mm) when H-FS14140 is used.]
Double memory card slot for flexible data management
The LUMIX GH6 supports high-bit-rate video recording with a double memory card slot* for a CFexpress Card (CFexpress Type B) and SD Memory Card (UHS-I/UHS-II UHS Speed Class 3, UHS-II Video Speed Class 90). This enables you to use different recording media depending on your shooting needs.
*For motion pictures with 800Mbps or more, variable frame rate with ALL-Intra, or ProRes, a CFexpress card is required.
