Full Panasonic GH5 specifications has been leaked online ahead of the official announcement. The flagship MILC will replace the current GH4 camera which has been introduced back in February, 2014.
Panasonic will unveil the video-centric shooter at Photokina 2016 event. It is expected to be a pre-announcement and the Micro Four Thirds camera will be released in early 2017.
Now more Panasonic GH5 specifications surfaced on the web including the 4K and 6K video recording.

A big surprise is about the sensor of the MFT camera. There were so much rumors floating around about the sensor. Now the rumor mill claims that the sensor will be in 20-megapixel resolutions.
The camera will have no crop for 4K video. This means that when recording 4K videos, it will use the whole sensor. Currently the GH4 uses 2.3x crop for 4K and this is only a part of the sensor.
The GH5 will also feature 4:2:2 10 bits internal recording. If true this is big news for professional filmmakers. This means that the MFT camera will produce very accurate color reproduction, especially with skin tones. On the other hand it also means much better LOG profile shooting.
