The Panasonic DMC-GM5 is an incredibly compact camera with a durable Magnesium Alloy body to give a sleek, stylish look and feel. It features a 16 megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor based on the Micro Four Thirds System standard for uncompromising high picture quality. Other features include a 1,166k-dot Equiv. built-in Live Viewfinder, Wi-Fi connectivity, fast and accurate AF with low-light AF capabilities.
While inheriting the image quality and performance of conventional LUMIX G cameras, the DMC-GM5 features a well planned design, starting with the main circuit board and shutter mechanism, to achieve superb compactness and light weight. Changes to the main circuit board provided space for the lens mount. And the spring-type shutter mechanism, which was difficult to downsize, was replaced by a motor mechanism for further reduction in size and weight
16 megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor
The DMC-GM5 boasts not just its outstandingly compact profile but its high functional performance for stunning picture quality. The large 16.00-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor achieves both high resolution and high sensitivity image recording with less noise. The Venus Engine features its advanced noise reduction systems which helps produce clear, smooth image especially for the nighttime scenery. The combination of the Live MOS Sensor and the Venus Engine achieves max. ISO25600.
Live Viewfinder / Touch Panel Rear Monitor
The DMC-GM5 features an LVF (Live View Finder) with 1,166k-dot equivalent resolution and approx. 100% colour reproduction. It assures stable framing and superb visibility even under strong sunlight. A 3-inch, approx. 921k-dot static-type touch monitor is also provided. The adoption of new monitor panel suppresses the reflection of external light, and enables higher visibility even for sunny outdoor shooting. Attenuation of transmitting backlight is minimized to achieve a wide angle of view and save power.
Fast and Accurate AF
The Contrast AF system of DMC-GM5 excels in both speed and accuracy by exchanging digital signals between the camera and the lens at a maximum 240 fps. The DMC-GM5 also offers high-speed burst shooting at 5.8 fps in 16.00-megapixel resolution and a maximum 40 fps with an electronic shutter.
Low Light AF makes it possible to focus on your subject more precisely in -4EV low-light situations, which is as dark as a starry sky with no other light source
1920x 1080p Full-HD Video in AVCHD / MP4
The DMC-GM5 features full-HD 1920 × 1080 50p smooth, high quality video recording in AVCHD Progressive and MP4 with stereo sound. The practical full-time AF and tracking AF is available in video recording, too. The cinema-like 24p video with the bit rate of max. 24 Mbps or P/A/S/M mode provide richly expressive afterimage with overwhelming image quality.
The P/A/S/M mode lets you enjoy expressive video recording by manually setting the aperture and shutter speed. You can also add different artistic effects to your videos by applying a Creative Control filter.
Snap Movie Mode
The new Snap Movie mode records video in designated short periods of time (2/4/6/8 sec) for shooting “moving photos.” This function also enables rack focusing and the addition of fading effects (colour in/out, black in/out, white in/out). Those short video clips are easy to share using “Panasonic Image App”. You can also connect them in any order you like and even to add music instead of recorded sound on the combined file later.
Hot Shoe / External Flash
The DMC-GM5 comes equipped with a hot shoe to allow the mounting of the external flash (GN10 ISO200・m / GN7 ISO100・m), which matches the design and size of the DMC-GM5. With a separately purchased DMW-FL360L / FL580L, wireless control and LED video light functions are available.
