And as the world's first(*1) DSLM camera capable of 4K video recording, this camera realizes highly detailed and realistic imagery, only possible with 4K that offers four times the resolution of Full HD.

When combined with a professional interface unit with I/O terminals for SDI and XLR, it can support diverse requirements in the field of video production.

This camera will go on sale worldwide this spring as the "LUMIX GH4."
