Jonathan Houldsworth has posted a video detailing this week’s rumor of the expected Panasonic GH5s camera. The video includes the detailed 4k footage zoom in that started all of it. As far as we can tell the footage has not been doctored and this is a new camera with a red ring. 4/3 Rumors is also pushing back the date of the GH5s announcement from December 15th to January 8th 2018 due to a mixup between the press event and the public release. Enjoy!
The video that started the entire speculation craze the past few days from Neumann Films showing a supposed GH5s Panasonic camera with a red colored dial akin to that of the recently announced Lumix G9. We have downloaded the video and isolated the video frames where the red dial is visible and scaled it for easy showing.
The camera is in our interest because it may offer 4k 120fps in its specs according to the rumors. In our findings, the supposed GH5s camera is nothing more than a plain GH5 camera that is momentarily reddened by a compression artifact set of macroblocks that changes to a red hue after a light change, then reverts back to normal. In our video analysis, you can clearly see the effect.
