The new Panasonic GH5 is a solid upgrade from the GH4. The camera will still use the same batteries as the GH4 which will be nice for GH4 users upgrading th the newer model. Upgraded, redesigned, and filled with features, the Lumix DC-GH5 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera from Panasonic provides an outstanding imaging platform for shooters who demand some of the best video and still photography quality they can get in a single compact camera. At the heart of the new Panasonic GH5 Camera is a 20.3MP Digital Live MOS sensor and a newly developed Venus Engine processor, which both offer dramatically improved processing times over its predecessor. This enables the ability to record 4K video at up to 60 fps, 10-bit 4:2:2 internal recording with select settings, Full HD video at up to 180 fps, 12 fps continuous shooting, and sensitivities up to ISO 25600.The GH5 features built-in 5-axis sensor stabilization, which can work with certain lenses to activate Dual I.S. 2 for highly effective shake correction that can compensate for up to 5 stops of shutter speed. Other improvements include a speedier and more accurate Advanced DFD autofocus system that can lock on in just 0.05 seconds, as well as 6K PHOTO at 30 fps and 4K PHOTO at up to 60 fps.

Panasonic V-Log Update for GH4/5 - $129 - on back
Upgrade your GH4/5 with Panasonic's V-Log Gamma Profile. This gives you a wide dynamic range of 12 stops (the GH4 has normally 10 stops). Helps you colour match to a Varicam. This V-Log profile has the same LUT and Curve as standard V-Log on the Panasonic broadcast cameras. Please note that V-Log, while it gives you increased dynamic range, also shoots in a very "flat" look (almost monochromatic), and requires heavy colour correcting in post. If you are looking for a fast and dirty workflow, V-Log is not for you. If you are looking to get maximum colour information from your image, andaren't afraid of colour grading in post, then you will be happy. This product contains only the activiation code - you still have to download the actual firmware from Panasonic.
