First-Friday Tech 00:22 (2023) – Panasonic Lumix GH7 18mm. The World’s Fastest AF Shooting Mirrorless Camera For Video.

A Legacy of Innovation: Introducing the LUMIX GH7

Panasonic’s Lumix GH series has, for years, led the way in the hybrid video camera world, crafting tools that meet the very particular requirements of video pros and stills shooters alike. The Lumix GH7, then, is the latest flagship in an illustrious photography family, and features a host of world-first technologies that will change the way we film. It features things like Apple ProRes RAW internal recording and 32-bit float recording to video files.

The Heart of the GH7: Unveiling World-Class Features

Powerful Performance and Enhanced Autofocus

Built around a newly developed 25.2 million pixel BSI CMOS sensor with dramatically enhanced dynamic range and lower noise, it is coupled with extremely fast, accurate autofocus (AF) – which includes on-sensor phase detection AF (PDAF) – making it simply one of the best cameras on the market for video. The focus of the camera is on what you want to focus on.

Revolutionizing Workflow: From Shooting to Post-Production

For video users, the addition of internal ProRes RAW – the world’s first 32-bit float recording – unlocks new levels of in-camera workflow flexibility. Because it eliminates the need to optimise the levels of a sound recording at the time of capturing, this feature sets new standards for high-fidelity audio capture together with unprecedented cinematic image quality. It also includes optional ARRI LogC3 integration for highly cinematic ARRI looks, and unparalleled integration into the digital ecosystem of ARRI digital cinema cameras, making it a perfect addition to any high-end digital production environment.

Optimized for Efficiency: Enhancing Your Creative Workflow

Not only fast but also streamlined, thoughtful touches include proxy recording, native Camera to Cloud integration with Adobe’s, and Open Gate recording for blowing out the frame, plus USB-C SSD recording and USB power supply for keeping the creative juices flowing on the most demanding shoots.

Durability Meets Mobility: Designed for the Field

Acknowledging the unpredictable nature of fieldwork, the Lumix GH7 is built like a tank, delivering outstanding durability and resistance against dust, splashes and even frost down to -10C to withstand whatever a desert or mountain environment throws at it. Its compact size makes it a hand-holding camera that will last, allowing you to film your story, wherever you might be.

Seamless ARRI Integration: Expanding Creative Possibilities

Better yet, the GH7 works perfectly with ARRI LogC3, which adds to the allure for professionals shooting alongside ARRI cinema cameras. The ability to colour-match easily and gain access to the ARRI Look Library make it a natural fit for high-end work and, given its compatibility with a broad range of Panasonic lenses, and the ability to sync with gimbals like the DJI Ronin-S 2, the Lumix GH7 is a formidable weapon in your arsenal, capturing the soul as well as every detail of your story.

Empowering Visual Stories: Why Cameras Matter

Cameras continue to simulate hand-eye coordination and a kind of flow, and now I can create and share stories in a different way by pressing a record button. With every new technological invention from a camera such as the Lumix GH7 we innovate as creators and it allows more tools in our tool kit to create more stories. Every time I want to dig deeper into what’s possible with digital technology, I can pull out my GH7. These tools continue to help us reinforce our own creativity and sharpen what we’re capable of.

You won’t find anything more true to this drives a legacy of Panasonic innovation than their latest mirrorless camera: the flagship Lumix GH7. This is a great camera for today’s hybrid videographer, photographer or storyteller, and an affordable way to push boundaries in production and storytelling.
