Panasonic says: “we received very big GH5 preorders globally and we are afraid about supply capacity”

Imaging Resource interviewed eight managers and engeneers from Panasonic. There is a lot of insight talk about the GH5. I do mention two points only:

High Demand of GH5:
“we [received] very big preorders globally and we are afraid about [supply] capacity.”

No overheating:
The GH5 uses heat-dispersing technology from the Panasonic TV. The heat comes 30% from the sensor and 70% from the processor. The previous GH4 had in-camera flash. That space is now used as a heatsink on the GH5
