Details from Panasonic

    16.05 Megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor
    The 16.05–megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor achieves high quality, high sensitivity image recording with its quick response. An approximately 50% higher speed signal readout suppresses the effect of a rolling shutter when using electronic shutter or recording video. The Live MOS Sensor delivers an expanded gradation range by a maximum1/3 step at low ISOs. Superior noise reduction allows for exposures up to 60 minutes long.

    Wi–Fi with NFC Technology
    The Panasonic LUMIX DMC–GH4 integrates Wi–Fi connectivity with NFC (Near Field Communication) technology. With the Panasonic Image App, remote photo and video shooting is available with a compatible smartphone or tablet, and can easily add embed geotag data in an image after shooting. Even if a smartphone / tablet is incompatible with NFC, you can still be easily connect to the camera by scanning the QR code displayed on the GH4's monitor from your mobile device.

    VFR Time Lapse Shot/Stop Motion Animation
    The VFR (Variable Frame Rate) enables Full–HD video recording with slow/fast motion* such as 96 fps / 4x**. Time Lapse Shot and Stop Motion Animation produce a stop motion (stop frame) video with sequential pictures. Both are created in–camera without any postproduction process.
    * See specifications for more effect options
    ** In 24p playback

    Superb Mobility & High–Speed Response
    The Panasonic LUMIX DMC–GH4 delivers superb mobility and high–speed response. The high–precision Contrast AF integrates DFD (Depth from Defocus) technology to achieve ultra high speed AF of approximately 0.07 sec*. The burst shooting power is boosted to 12 fps (AFS), and both 2,359K–dot LVF (Live View Finder) and 1,036K–dot rear monitor adopt OLED to minimize time lag while enhancing the resolution.
    *In AFS, with H–FS14140 or H–HS12035

    Superb Picture Quality for Lifelike Textures
    The Panasonic LUMIX GH4's Venus Engine image processor is equipped with a quad–core CPU that delivers high speed signal processing. Combined with the Digital Live MOS Sensor, you'll enjoy dramatically improved sensitivity (maximum ISO 25600), gradation performance, resolution, and color reproduction while achieving exceptional picture quality with a natural look and feel that LUMIX is famous for.

    Electronic Shutter & Silent Mode
    The Panasonic LUMIX DMC–GH4 boasts an electronic shutter. The high–speed signal readout from the Live MOS Sensor minimizes rolling shutter effect. The Silent mode switches the shutter from mechanical to electronic and turns off sounds, while suppressing the AF assist lamp and flash with just a single setting for special shooting occasions.

    High Performance Professional Shutter
    The shutter unit boasts professional graded added durability delivering approximately 200,000 release times*. You'll be empowered with a maximum shutter speed of 1/8000 second, not only for capturing spur–of–the–moment fast moving subjects, but also using a high–speed lens with an open aperture even in outdoors to achieve the desired defocus effect. Both the built–in and external flash can be synchronized with a maximum 1/250 second shutter speed.
    *Panasonic in–house examination

    Reliable Durability
    Tough enough to withstand even heavy field use, the Panasonic LUMIX DMC–GH4 is composed of a magnesium alloy full die cast front / rear frame. It also features splash** / dustproof construction with sealing on every joint, dial, and button. The shutter unit is designed for durability and delivers approximately 200,000 release times*.
    *Panasonic in–house examination
    ** Splash Proof is a term used to describe an extra level of protection this camera offers against exposure to a minimal amount of moisture, water or dust. Splash Proof does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this camera is subjected to direct contact with water.

    Dual OLED Displays – LVF & Monitor
    The Panasonic LUMIX DMC–GH4 boasts high–precision, high–speed dual OLED (Organic Light–Emitting Diode) displays for 2,359K–dott LVF (Live View Finder) of approximately 1.34x / 0.67x*, and 3.0–inch 1,036K–dot free–angle rear monitor. These superior displays achieve high–speed response with minimum time lag while enhancing resolution. The OLED for the LVF boasts 10,000:1 high contrast for superior color reproduction.
    *35mm camera equivalent

    Venus Engine Advanced Image Processor
    The Venus Engine image processor dramatically boosts performance with a quad–core CPU, enabling high–speed signal processing required for rich video recording such as 4K. Integrating superior noise reduction systems, DMC–GH4 successfully shoots at a maximum ISO 25600. Sensitivity, gradation performance, resolution, and color reproduction are dramatically improved to achieve even higher picture quality.

    Magnesium Alloy Body & Rugged Design
    Tough enough to withstand even heavy field use, the Panasonic LUMIX DMC–GH4 is composed of a magnesium alloy full die cast front / rear frame. It also features splash* / dustproof construction with sealing on every joint, dial, and button.
