gh4-1Photographers, if you’ve been looking forward to the sequel of the Panasonic Lumix GH3 from back in 2012, you might have heard the rumors that Panasonic could be releasing the Lumix GH4 in the near future. Well it looks like those rumors were right as Panasonic has officially announced the Panasonic Lumix GH4 which the company claims to be the world’s first DSLM with 4K video recording capabilities, although it should be noted that this claim is for a digital single lens mirrorless camera as of date as there are other cameras out there that can shoot in 4K resolution.

In any case according to the rest of the specs, the Panasonic Lumix GH4 will feature a 16MP Live MOS sensor and will be powered by a Venus Engine IX processor that not only allows for 4K video capture, but also 12fps continuous shooting and Full HD 1080p video shooting at bitrates as high as 200Mbps. The GH4 will also feature a new autofocus system called “Depth from Defocus” that allows the camera to focus as quick as 0.07 seconds. The camera will come with a 3-inch OLED display that can be adjusted, and an OLED EVF with over 2 million dots. There will also be WiFi and NFC connectivity that allows for wireless transfer of photos onto mobile devices. Pricing and availability have yet to be determined.
