Panasonic GH7: ARRI Log C3 Inside

Panasonic has unveiled the GH7, a micro four-thirds camera packed with advanced features and capabilities that are sure to impress filmmakers. The GH7 brings together technologies from Panasonic's full-frame cameras, like the S5 Mark II and the S1H, making it a powerful tool for video production.

Behind the Scenes

  • The GH7 features phase detection autofocus (PDAF), a first for the GH line, with advanced subject detection options for better tracking.

  • It boasts a new 25.2-megapixel backside-illuminated (BSI) sensor, providing improved low-light performance and dynamic range across the entire ISO range.

  • The camera can record 4K 120fps video internally, downsampled from the 5.7K sensor for sharp, crisp footage without binning or skipping.

  • It supports Apple ProRes RAW internal recording at 5.7K 30p or 4.2 Gbps in HQ mode, offering flexibility and high-quality raw video.

  • The GH7 is one of the first cameras outside the ARRI ecosystem to feature the ARRI LogC3 color profile, allowing for a seamless workflow with ARRI cameras.

  • The optional XLR2 audio adapter enables 32-bit float audio recording directly to the video file, providing ample headroom for audio adjustments in post-production.

Final Take

The Panasonic GH7 represents a significant leap forward for the micro four thirds system, bringing professional-level features and capabilities to a compact, affordable camera body. With its advanced autofocus, high-quality recording options, and the inclusion of ARRI LogC3, the GH7 is poised to be a versatile tool for filmmakers looking to create stunning visuals without breaking the bank.

Its compatibility with the ARRI ecosystem also makes it an attractive option for those looking to expand their kit or use it as a reliable B-camera on larger productions.
