Panasonic GH5 + 12-35mm f2.8

A mighty and robust duo, the Panasonic GH5 will capture 4k footage in 10bit colour or at 60fps. Both the lens and body has stabilisation making for rock-steady shots. It has an unlimited recording time and a long-lasting battery. Additionally, it can also take quite incredible photos.

The 12-35mm lens has an equivalent zoom range to a 24-70mm lens.

See the full specs here: DPREVIEW GH5 Review

Max Framerate: 180fps in 1080p
Fully articulated screen

While the GH5 does have auto focus, it's not known to be particularly great due to it being contrast-detection based. Please do some research on this first. We always recommend manual focus for perfect shots!

Any additional equipment may only be hired in addition to the GH5 kit.
Please get in touch if you need a standalone hire.
