(FT5) First image of the GH5s shows it has same GH5 body with G9 alike red ring on the drive wheel


The image you see here on top shows the new GH5s (or whatever the name will be) that will be announced on December 15. UPDATE:  December 15 press event for journalists but announcement may be in early January?

This image only tells us one simple thing: The GH5s on the back looks EXACTLY the same as the GH5 body with one exception: It has the “red ring” on the drive wheel like the one used by the new Panasonic G9 (see image here on Amazon).

We know this about the GH5s:
– This is a low light version of the GH5. It probably has a new low resolution sensor.
– This will be a more advanced version of the GH5 with improved video quality, stunning low light performance
– higher price tag than the GH5.
– Same GH5 body
– UPDATE:  December 15 press event for journalists but announcement may be in early January?

We have no specs yet but we can safely assume it will have a new low resolution sensor. I hope sources can soon drop me some specs anonymously via contact form :)

Join the GH5 and GH5s facebook group to discuss the new camera.

Sensor speculation:

Just recently Sony announced that 10,7 Megapixel Four Thirds sensor which records 4K at 120 frame/s (in ADC 10-bit output mode). I am not sure this is the sensor used by the GH5s. Also because Sony says it’s made for surveillance and industry use. Full PDF file here:

For sources: Sources can send me anonymous info at (create a fake gmail account) or via contact form you see on the right sidebar. Thanks!
