UHD 4K video recording is also supported at 30p and pre-installed V-Log L enables a wider dynamic range of up to 12 stops for greater colour grading control during post-production. Also, 4:2:2 8-bit output is possible when recording externally via micro-HDMI and both headphone and microphone jacks support improved audio recording. Additionally, complementing the imaging capabilities, a Dual I.S.2 system that offers the use of both in-camera and in-lens image stabilization systems to effectively minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to five stops.
Benefitting the versatile photo and video capabilities in a compact form factor and a durable, weather-sealed design to suit working in inclement conditions. For eye-level viewing, a 0.74x-magnification OLED viewfinder is featured with a 2.36m-dot resolution for clear viewing. The rear 3.0" 1.24m-dot LCD incorporates a free-angle design to benefit working from high, low, and front-facing angles and it is also a touchscreen for intuitive operation. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enable wireless remote camera control and image transferring to a mobile device.
What makes the LUMIX G95 a truly hybrid camera are its host of advanced video functions. The camera captures 4K 3840 x 2160 at 30p/25p/24p and is capable of real-time image output to an external monitor/recorder via HDMI at the same time as recording video internally. High-Speed Video lets users record slow-motion video in Full HD at 120 fps (1/4x), 90 fps (1/3x) and 60 fps (1/2x). Furthermore, log recording is available with V-Log L pre-installed, offering exceptional flexibility as well as a wider dynamic range for colour grading in the post-production process. V-LogL features log characteristics with 12 stops of dynamic range. The 3.5mm microphone jack and headphone socket support professional recording in the field.
The camera benefits from Panasonic’s 4K capabilities, including 4K Video with 4K Live Cropping for stable panning and zooming during recording; and 4K Photo with 4K Pre-burst mode which shoots 30 frames per second before and after the shutter is released. Other 4K features include Sequence Composition, Light Composition, and Auto Marking which makes it easier to select the best shot from hundreds on a reel by highlighting images that contain movement or faces. Post Focus mode allows the user to choose the focal point of an image after the shot has been taken, while Focus Stacking combines focal points to achieve complete foreground to background focus.
Easy one-handed operation of camera controls is supported with three buttons on top of the camera for adjusting exposure, ISO and white balance. The front/rear dual dial system is easy to access, and the ergonomic design sees rear buttons positioned around the wheel dial.
A high-quality magnesium-alloy full diecast front frame ensures the compact body is both rugged and lightweight, and the camera’s weather-sealed splash and dustproof body
protects all joints, dials and buttons against extreme conditions. The optional rugged battery grip (DMW-BGG1) supports extended shooting, doubling battery life, and allows easy access to main controls in portrait orientation. Providing a complete rugged kit, Panasonic has also launched a refreshed LUMIX G telephoto zoom lens, the LUMIX G VARIO 14-140mm / F3.5-5.6 II ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. (H-FSA14140), featuring a splash/dust-resistant design. Ensuring precise focus, the OLED Live View Finder (2360K-dot) has a magnification of 0.74x (35mm camera equivalent). The high-speed OLED technology delivers a time lag of less than 0.01 sec and an exceptional 10,000:1 high contrast ratio. An eyepoint distance of around 20mm improves visibility and comfort for glasses wearers. An LVF power saving mode is also selectable. The free-angle 3.0-inch LCD rear monitor (approx.1240K-dot) uses touch control, and tilts up and down by around 250-degrees, making shooting at high and low angles easier.
Photographers on the move can streamline the sharing of images with smartphones using Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy connection and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi® (IEEE 802.11b/g/n). With an always-on connection, images can be geotagged, and your smartphone can be used as a remote control. The camera can also be conveniently charged on the go via USB cable direct to the camera, anywhere there is a USB power source.
Panasonic’s 5-Axis Dual IS 2 offers excellent stability in a range of situations. A high-precision gyrosensor joins the Dual IS system of 5-axis in-body stabilisation and 2-axis optical stabilisation in selected lenses. This makes it possible to use up to five stops slower shutter speed in both photo and video. Incredibly stable performance can be achieved when shooting handheld, reducing the need to carry a tripod or Steadicam rig. The electromagnetically-driven shutter system provides quiet, steady shooting.
Panasonic has achieved high-speed AF with its advanced control technology. The lens and sensor communicate at a maximum 240fps. Contrast AF with DFD technology allows the camera to achieve a high-speed, high-precision AF of approximately 0.07vi sec. The camera also boasts high-speed burst shooting at 9 fps (AFS/MF) or 6 fps (AFC), at up to 600 (JPEG) / 30 (RAW) images. Other AF functions include AF Sensitivity, Face/Eye Detection AF, Pinpoint AF, One-shot AF and advanced Low Light AF. Focus peaking is available for more flexible manual focusing. Bracketing modes available include focus, aperture, exposure and white balance bracketing.
The camera boasts high-quality yet natural images, via Panasonic’s latest 20-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor (without Low Pass Filter) and the high-precision Venus Engine processor – providing incredible detail, outstanding low-light performance and impressive dynamic range.
Developed as a compact zoom that is ideal for travel, the Lumix G Vario 12-60mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. from Panasonic is a Micro Four Thirds system lens that spans a versatile 24-120mm equivalent focal length range. Covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives, the lens' design incorporates three aspherical elements and one extra-low dispersion element to reduce spherical and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range for increased clarity and image sharpness. Additionally, an apt POWER Optical Image Stabilization system compensates for the effects of camera shake and is also compatible with cameras featuring Dual I.S. for robust stability to benefit handheld shooting in difficult lighting conditions. Further cementing its place as a versatile and ideal lens for photographers on-the-go, this 12-60mm lens sports a dust- and splash-proof construction for use in harsh environments.
The Benro Slim Video Tripod Kit with S2 Head features a slim profile shoulder making the tripod more compact when folded. With a maximum weight capacity of 2.5kg this tripod is ideal for shooting video with mirrorless or compact DSLR cameras or camcorders. It could also be the perfect lightweight birdwatching tripod due to its compact and lightweight nature.
Supplied with the SLIM Video tripod is the compact version of Benro's popular S2 Pan and Tilt video head. This head features smooth damping for both the pan and tilt movements and a sliding quick release plate for balancing your kit.
The Rode VideoMicro is a compact microphone designed to improve the audio quality of your videos. It incorporates a high-quality cardioid condenser microphone capsule for great quality audio recordings when used with a wide range of cameras.
As a directional microphone, the VideoMicro reduces distracting peripheral sounds and focusses on the audio in front of the camera. Its pickup is more forgiving than Rode's other on-camera microphones providing a more natural sound when recording indoors. Perfect for capturing incredible audio to accompany inspiring vision.
The microphone body is made from aluminium, giving it a high level of RF rejection, and is finished in Rode's high-grade ceramic anti-glare black coating. Included with the VideoMicro is a camera shoe mount featuring a Rycote Lyre shock mount. Featuring a suspension structure composed of a hard-wearing thermoplastic, it is far more effective at minimising unwanted vibrations, handling and cable-borne noise than traditional elastic suspensions. Virtually indestructible, the Rycote Lyre will never sag, snap, wear out or require rethreading to maintain its effectiveness. Also included is the WS9 synthetic furry windshield with foam inner cell, designed for use in outdoor scenarios where wind and environmental noise can inhibit recordings.
