Panasonic today announced the Australian prices for its new mirrorless camera the Lumix DMC-GH4, which will be available in early May, and also unveiled a new interchangeable lens for the Lumix G Series range.

Announced last month, the Lumix DMC-GH4 is a new micro four-thirds camera which can shoot video Ultra HD (4K) at 3,840 x 2,160:  four times the pixels as Full HD. The shutter has been designed for a lifespan of up to 200,000 releases and the 16.05-megapixel camera has a 2.3 million dot Live View Finder and newly developed dual OLED displays for reviewing images and video.

The camera is aimed at professional photographers and videographers, with features to support commercial editing and production.  The Wi-Fi connectivity has been enhanced by Near Field Communication (NFC) for simple pairing with a smartphone or tablet, with QR code scanning available for non-NFC devices.

Doug Campbell, product marketing manager for Lumix, Panasonic Australia said, “Panasonic has achieved a new milestone for the Lumix G Series with this camera. The Lumix DMC-GH4 offers a raft of enhancements that surpass the capabilities of the previous DMC-GH3 to deliver best-in-class performance.”
