Panasonic is proud to announce the release of the brand’s first box-style LUMIX digital single lens mirrorless camera DC-BGH1. Based on the Micro Four Thirds system standard, the new LUMIX BGH1 uses high mobility, an extensive range of interchangeable lenses and even includes technologies that Panasonic has acquired through the development of professional cinema cameras, camcorders and the LUMIX GH series. Against the background of increasing streaming possibilities, Panasonic offers the LUMIX BGH1, an easy-to-install camera with a high degree of expandability, which enables the control of several cameras, in addition to conventional broadcasting. It can be used in a variety of ways, from recording on drones to IP remote control to live streaming and more
Professional video quality thanks to high sensitivity and large dynamic range
The new LUMIX BGH1 integrates a 10.2 megapixel live MOS sensor with dual native ISO technology and the Venus engine. Dual Native ISO is a technology that seamlessly connects two circuits with a separate native ISO and is used in Panasonic Varicam models for professionals. Typically, the noise increases as sensitivity increases with a single native ISO image sensor. However, the Dual Native ISO image sensor minimizes noise by selecting an optimal circuit that matches sensitivity prior to gain processing. As a result, a highly sensitive recording according to ISO 51.200 is possible.
The LUMIX BGH1 enables 4: 2: 0 10-Bit C4K / 4K 60p or 4: 2: 2 10-Bit All-I C4k / 4K 30p internal video recording. The camera can record video with a fixed gamma curve compatible with ITU-R BT.2100, and users can now select Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) in Photo style. A low bit rate recording mode C4K / 4K HEVC / H.265 for HLG is also available.
V-Log L now has log features with 13 stops with a large dynamic range and is preinstalled. It is also capable of 4K 4: 2: 2 10-bit C4K / 4K 60p output over HDMI.
With the VFR (Variable Frame Rate) users can record overcranked / undercranked videos in C4K / 4K (60 fps, maximum 2.5x slower in 24p) and FHD (240 fps, maximum 10x slower in 24p). * The minimum frame rate for fast motion video is 2 fps.
The LUMIX BGH1 also includes advanced deep learning technology that recognizes specific subjects such as humans and fast moving animals including dogs, cats and birds. Real-time recognition technology detects the head in addition to the eyes, face and body separately for humans in order to enable even more precise focusing. The camera will track the subject even if it moves quickly, turns its back to the camera, tilts its head, or stands far from the camera.
* The angle of view is narrowed when the frame rate is set to 201 fps.
High level of user comfort in the film production scene and scalability with external devices
The LUMIX BGH1 is a compact, lightweight box-style camera. Its body is made of aluminum and magnesium alloy for durability and light weight. The LUMIX BGH1 has a new heat dissipation structure for unlimited video recording. It offers Power over Ethernet + (PoE +) and simplifies installation by providing power, signal and control over Ethernet. Control of a maximum of 12 LUMIX BGH1 cameras *1 is available in the Panasonic LUMIX Tether for Multicam *2 Application. A future firmware update will support IP streaming over wired Ethernet (RTP / RTSP).
The included Ethernet port or the USB 3.1 Type C, 3G-SDI and HDMI Type A terminals can all be used for simultaneous output. The Genlock IN and Timecode IN / OUT functions simplify synchronized video recording with multiple angles and can be integrated into a scalable system with external monitors, rigs and gimbals from other manufacturers.
The LUMIX BGH1 is equipped with two UHS-II SD card slots for backup or relay recordings.
