This year marks the 20th anniversary of the establishment of Panasonic’s camera brand LUMIX, and Panasonic plans to release a number of new products. The button layout of this camera is similar to that of the previous generation, but the video button and left dial have red accents, making them more lively. Panasonic did not announce whether the sensor is the same as the previous generation, only that the CMOS front filter uses a new anti-reflective coating , and the camera’s dynamic range has been further expanded. In addition, the Venus Engine image sensor built into the camera has also been upgraded.

In terms of anti-shake, GH5 II supports 5-axis body anti-shake, combined with lens anti-shake components can achieve 6.5-speed anti-shake capability , while GH5 is only 5-speed anti-shake. This camera also supports V-Log L recording by default, and does not require the user to pay to unlock it separately.
