According to Japanese news outlet Nikkan the Panasonic GH5 will get a resolution bump to approximately 20MP, with 18MP stills pulled from the 6K video mode in 16:9 aspect ratio. 4K at higher frame rates such as 60p, likely with a crop of the sensor is rumoured to be possible.
Without doubt my favourite camera series of the last 5 years has been the Panasonic GH range.
But with the Sony A6300 on the horizon sporting a Super 35mm sensor with full 6K readout, is the future looking a bit shaky for Panasonic’s video wunderkind?
Panasonic froze image sensor research and development in 2011 and have only now resumed.
The company has committed $80m to revitalise their image sensors business in light of growing revenue from their imaging business as a whole and hot demand for sensors.
One of the goals of the $80m investment is the creation of an 8K sensor to be released in Panasonic cameras around 2018.

EOSHD has a theory.
