The Panasonic LUMIX GH5 II offers a professional-quality imaging platform for on-the-go content creators who require versatile video and stills capabilities in a single compact camera, with updated video capabilities and a refined design paired with the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm F/2.8-4.0 Lens.

The Panasonic GH5M2 aims to be a powerful and feature-rich camera for advanced hybrid photo/video shooters, individual video creators, live streaming creators, vloggers, YouTubers, or small production teams looking for a high-powered, highly versatile hybrid camera with a strong emphasis on video capabilities.

The camera has a 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor with a new Anti-Reflective (AR) coating for maximum lens performance, as well as an updated image processor powered by the most recent high-speed Venus Engine. The advanced Body I.S (Image Stabiliser) and the latest S1H algorithm enable the GH5M2 to shoot at up to 6.5 stops slower shutter speeds for impressively stable handheld shooting and video panning – a 1.5 stop improvement over the GH5.

Modern content creators can take advantage of the GH line's renowned image quality and usability while also being able to live stream wherever and whenever they want thanks to the GH5M2's industry-leading live streaming capabilities.

Furthermore, the included Panasonic Leica DG Vario-ELMARIT 12-60mm F/2.8-4 POWER O.I.S. Lens has a useful wide-angle to short telephoto range, delivering well-corrected and sharp image quality free of colour fringing and distortions. It has quick, quiet, and precise autofocus, and the POWER Optical Image Stabilizer system reduces camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Furthermore, the lens's tough metal body makes it splash, dust, and freezeproof, making it ideal for use in harsh conditions.
