Lumix GH4 shipping in late April, May, priced at $1700 for the body alone

Panasonic has released more details about shipments of its Lumix GH4 camera, following its formal unveiling early last month. The 4K-capable device and its optional YAGH interface unit will be shipping to customers in late April or May, depending on the country, with the 16.05-megapixel Micro Four Thirds camera being priced at $1,700 for the body alone.

EOSHD reports the listings on Panasonic's online store tally with those of Adorama, B&H Photo, and other retailers, with potential owners in the UK and Europe having to pay £1,300 ($2,160) and 1,400 euro ($1940) respectively. The YAGH interface, shipping at the same time, will cost $2,000 in the United States, or $3,300 as a bundle with the Lumix GH4. The same bundle in the UK will cost £2,500 ($4,160.)

The Lumix GH4 is able to capture video at 4096x2160 at 24fps and 3840x2160 at 30fps, with a data rate of 100Mbps, as well as 1080p at 60fps with a 200Mbps data rate. The YAGH accessory offers uncompressed 4K video output at 10-bit color without a data rate cap, SDI outputs, XLR ports, and independent audio controls, making the camera more suitable for professional video recording.

Using a Digital Live MOS sensor with the Venus Engine IX image processor, it has a RAW burst mode of 12fps, or 7fps when using AF tracking, a 49-point focus array, and a Depth from Defocus autofocus system. The Lumix GH4 is weather-sealed, offers a 2.36 million-dot EVF, a 3-inch, 1 million-dot vari-angle OLED display, and Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity.
