New Panasonic DC-BGH1 Box-Style Lumix Mirrorless Camera

By on

Panasonic has announced a new mirrorless video camera, the box-style Lumix DC-BGH1. Based on the Micro Four Thirds System, the new Lumix BGH1 offers access to an extensive lens lineup and combines technology from professional cinema cameras, camcorders and the Lumix GH series.

The new LUMIX BGH1 integrates a 10.2-megapixel Live MOS Sensor with Dual Native ISO technology and a Venus Engine. Dual Native ISO technology seamlessly utilises two circuits to create two separate native ISO settings, which is used in Panasonic professional Varicam models. Normally, noise increases as sensitivity rises with a single native ISO image sensor, however, an image sensor with Dual Native ISO minimises noise generation by choosing an optimal circuit to use according to the sensitivity before gain processing. As a result, the BGH1 is capable of a maximum ISO 51200 high sensitivity recording.

The Panasonic BGH1 will be available in December at a price of $2000. Check availability at Adorama | B&H. Best Micro Four Thirds Lenses for Olympus and Panasonic Cameras
