Panasonic announced the development of the GH6 earlier in the year, throwing those who had been waiting for a GH5 update a bone by also introducing the GH5 II at the same time.
Both cameras are squarely aimed at videographers, with the GH6 looking set to kick specs up a notch for those who are seriously into it. We don’t have the full specifications yet, but we do know that it will have a new high-speed sensor and processor, which should make the camera a good alternative to larger sensor models on the market - such as the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro.
So far we’ve only been treated to a development announcement, but it came with the assertion that the camera will be available by the end of 2021. With the months fast running out, we’d expect to see an October or November announcement to make sure it’s ready in time for the Christmas buying season.
During the launch, Panasonic said that the price point is likely to be around $2,500 (around £1,700 / AU $3,225) which puts it at a very competitive price for the likely tech on board.
