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: sony-semicon.co.jp/products_en/IS/sensor0/img/product/cmos/IMX294CJK_Flyer.pdf
