The Panasonic GH4 is a Micro Four Thirds powerhouse that is more than capable of holding its own in a photo or video shoot-out against its larger, heavier DSLR rivals. Embodying the ultimate in performance and portability, the GH4 is a worthy consideration for seasoned photographers and videographers looking for a dependable tool to take their body of work to the next level.

At its heart is a 16.05 megapixel Digital Live MOS image sensor and a powerful quad-core Venus Engine image processor which work in unison to produce some amazing figures – 12 fps continuous burst mode shooting up to a maximum 100 shots (JPEG mode). A maximum ISO 25600 for exceptional low light performance. 4K Ultra-High Definition (UHD) video at 30p/24p and DCI 4K 4096x2160 video at 24p for breathtaking video footage. Additionally, the GH4 delivers real-time 8 and 10-bit 4:2:2 HDMI output for accurate monitoring, external recording and much more.

Packed with video features, the GH4 caters to a broad range of users from aspiring YouTube filmmakers to seasoned documentary shooters. Features such as focus peaking, time code support, multiple file formats and special effects such as in-camera time lapse and stop motion animation modes will provide you with the enhanced creative versatility to allow you to create something truly special.

Photographers will find the GH4 equally capable for producing striking, detail rich still images. Its high speed, precision autofocus system utilises a combination of Contrast AF and DDF (Depth from Defocus) technology to provide near instant focus lock. An extensive 49-point AF area results in more accurate composition and better creative control.

Silent mode switches the operation of the shutter from mechanical to electronic, disables the focusing lamp and pop-up flash. Shooting in Silent mode can be enabled in one step and is ideal for situations such as wildlife or event photography where light or sound from your camera may spook or serve as a distraction to your subject or the surrounding audience.

In-camera RAW processing can help save valuable time when working to a deadline. It allows you to shoot RAW images and adjust the colour space, white balance, sharpness, hue, noise reduction and more without having to copy the files onto your laptop or desktop computer. Once you are happy with the final result, you can export directly to the memory card in JPEG format for easy distribution or publishing.

Two high-speed OLED displays are used for image composition and review. Housed in the rear of the camera is a 3-inch 1036K-dot screen which delivers an approximate 100% coverage. In difficult lighting situations or when critical focus is required an ultra-sharp 2356k-dot Electronic viewfinder can be utilised for pixel perfect framing.

Built-in WiFi with NFC connectivity enables fast, stress-free connection with your compatible smartphone or tablet. Utilising the free Panasonic Image App enables instant sharing to your friends, family and favourite social networks. The app also delivers wireless camera control and transforms your smart device into remote viewfinder and remote control, allowing you to shoot from a distance.

Encompassing its feature packed internals is a robust yet lightweight magnesium alloy frame which, combined with sealing on all switches, buttons and dials ensures a rugged splash proof and dust proof exterior. Ideal for use as an everyday workhorse, the ability of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 to deliver outstanding results in a diverse range of shooting conditions makes it a worthy contender for any photo or video professional.
