Panasonic has given us more details about its newest camera system – the Panasonic GH4 that is scheduled to ship next month.

The GH4 was first unveiled during last month’s CES in Las Vegas and was marketed as the successor of the Lumix GH3 but with 4K capabilities. Specifically, it can shoot both traditional 4K content and Cinema 4K (4096 x 2160 pixels) at 30 frames per second with a 100Mbps bit rate.

It can also record Full HD videos at 60, 30 or 24fps. Users can also capture clean HDMI video with an external recorder. There’s also an optional interface unit that mounds at the bottom of the camera to provide users with SDI outputs with support for 4K, time code, two XLR microphone inputs and a 13.8 volt terminal for external power.

But let’s not forget that the GH4 is still a camera and therefore is capable of capturing stills. It has a 16MB CMOS micro four thirds sensor, ISO 200-25600, a 2.36M-dot OLED EVF, a 3-inch tilt-and-swivel OLED panel at the back, 0.07-second focus speed, 12fps burst mode and a magnesium alloy body that’s splash- and dust-proof.

The Panasonic Lumix GH4 is expected to ship next month for close to $2000.
