Panasonic Lumix GH6 Price in US

The Panasonic Lumix GH6 is a flagship mirrorless camera that utilizes a Micro Four Thirds sensor and is designed to appeal to both still photographers and filmmakers.

This 2022 model is the successor to the popular GH5 and GH5 II cameras. It now supports internal video recording at up to 5.7K 60p 10-bit resolution with unlimited recording and Apple ProRes 422 HQ support. Additionally, it has a brand new 25.2 megapixel sensor that does not contain a low-pass filter and the most recent high-speed and high-performance Venus Engine.

Other key new improvements include an upgraded contrast-detect autofocus system with a new AF algorithm and 315 focus points, an expanded ISO range of 50-25600, dual CFexpress card (Type B) and UHS-II V90 SD memory card slots, an improved Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) that is now worth up to 7.5-stops slower shutter speed, and a 75fps burst shooting mode at full 25 megapixel resolution (AF-S mode only).

The splash- and dust-resistant GH6 also features built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a top shutter speed of 1/8000th, a flash sync speed of 1/250th of a second, a 1,728-zone metering system, a 3,680K-dot OLED electronic viewfinder with 120fps frame rate, a 1.84M-pixel 3-inch swiveling and tilting LCD screen, a touchscreen control system with touch-based functions

China is the location of production for the Panasonic Lumix GH6. Only black models are currently in stock, and they can be purchased for £1999 or $2199 for the body alone; alternatively, they can be purchased for £2199 with the normal 12-60mm f3.5-5.6 lens, or for £2599 or $2799 with the Leica 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 lens.

The Panasonic Lumix GH6, which has dimensions of 138.4 x 100.3 x 99.6mm (5.45 x 3.95 x 3.92 inches) and a body-only weight of 739g (1.63 pounds), is significantly larger and heavier than the GH5 II model that it effectively succeeds. The GH5 II model has dimensions of 138.5 x 98.1 x 87.4mm and a body-only weight of 647 grams.

This is partly because to the heat-sink and forced-cooling fan mechanism that Panasonic built into the architecture of the GH6, which helps to contribute to the camera’s remarkably infinite recording durations across all of its possible video modes.

The camera is 12 millimeters (mm) deeper than the GH5/II, which is something that is most noticeable in the region of the rear LCD screen, which protrudes quite a ways out from the back of the camera. This is the one negative aspect of the camera.

The GH6’s body is constructed out of magnesium alloy, and both the front and the rear frames are entirely die-cast. The GH6 has every joint, dial, and button sealed, making it resistant to dust, water, and temperatures as low as -10 degrees Celsius. Additionally, the GH6 can withstand splashing liquids and is dustproof.

The shutter release has a life expectancy of 200,000 shots in the camera. This is one of the most well-constructed Panasonic cameras that we have ever examined, and it should be able to withstand some significant damage. This holds true for both the GH5 and the GH5 II versions that came before it.

The Panasonic GH6 may be purchased with either the body itself, the Panasonic 12-60mm f3.5-5.6 lens, or the remarkable Leica 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 lens that was used for our evaluation of the camera.

The Leica 12-60mm optic is ideal for video application since it has rapid maximum apertures despite being relatively tiny and light. It also provides excellent image quality, is quick to focus, and is fully quiet.

In contrast to the previous GH5 and GH5 Mark II models, which both had detachable battery grips as an accessible accessory, the brand-new GH6 does not feature such a grip. This choice by Panasonic is very perplexing. Therefore, there is no way to house an additional battery to lengthen the total battery life of the camera, nor is there any option to make the camera larger for improved handling when using longer and heavier lenses.

The brand-new Panasonic Lumix GH6 is a hybrid camera that provides an ambitious one-man or one-woman videographer with practically everything they could possibly desire from such a device. This truly is the Swiss Army Knife of the mirrorless camera world since it offers every possible combination of settings under the sun, and more laudably, it allows for endless recording owing to the incorporation of a heat-sink and fan.
The one so-called “missing” feature is 8K recording, which is something that numerous full-frame competitors now offer. However, we believe that the 5.7K/60p and 4K/120p recording choices, together with the multitude of other options that are available, more than make up for this shortcoming.
The fact that the GH6 was designed with filmmaking in mind does not mean that it is less accommodating to still shooters. Panasonic has made it quite apparent that they have not forgotten about the stills photographer by introducing a fresh new 25 megapixel sensor that finally smashes the 20 megapixel barrier as well as 100 megapixel handheld high-resolution photography.
It’s not all good news, though, since numerous functions that were available on the GH5 II have been totally removed from this new model. These features include focus stacking and post-focus, as well as live streaming and 6K/4K photo modes. We don’t really know why any of them were deleted, nor do we know whether they will be put back to the GH6 at a later date in the form of a firmware update; however, we really hope that this will be the case.
Additionally, the GH6 is the largest and heaviest Panasonic Micro Four Thirds camera to date. This is an inescapable consequence of the built-in fan included in the GH6, so if you want your MFT camera to be compact and unobtrusive, you will need to go elsewhere.
Even though the updated contrast-detection AF system is faster and more reliable than its predecessor, it still does not compare all that well to the best phase-detection AF systems from other mirrorless camera manufacturers. This includes the OM System OM-1, which is the GH6’s primary competitor in the MFT market.
