Panasonic launches video-focused live-event box camera

Panasonic has announced a new Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera designed for live event streaming, vlogging, mounting to drones and more. The box-shaped Lumix DC-BGH1 doesn’t have a viewfinder or rear display panel, but is compatible with an extensive lens lineup and capable of Cinema 4K and 10-bit video recording.

The BGH1’s light and durable aluminum and magnesium alloy body is home to a 10.2-megapixel Live MOS sensor and Venus image processing engine combination, making it a similar proposition to the Lumix GH5S. Indeed it also features the Dual Native ISO technology found in that camera, which chooses between two separate ISO circuits for optimal low noise output. Light sensitivity tops out at ISO51,200.

Eye, face and body detection of human subjects gets joined by head detection, with “advanced deep learning technology” able to track fast-moving animals too.

There’s no mention of stills photography for the BGH1 at all, with

Many things to many people: Panasonic launches DC-BGH1 modular ‘box’ camera: Digital Photography Review

Panasonic has announced a new Micro Four Thirds video camera, the Lumix DC-BGH1. This box-style camera is built around a 10.2MP Live MOS sensor. Based on specs, the BGH1 might appear to be essentially a Panasonic GH5S minus the screen and controls, and to some degree, it is. Still, Panasonic has included several features that are rather interesting.

The aluminum and magnesium alloy body is relatively small, at 93mm per side and 78mm deep (3.66 x 3.07 inches). Notably, the camera lacks both a viewfinder and a screen but includes eleven 1/4″-20 sockets for mounting accessories or a tripod. An integrated fan and internal heat dispersion system allow for unlimited record times, and a hot shoe mount on top of the camera can be used to mount a microphone or Panasonic’s DMW-XLR1 XLR adapter.

Camera controls include a dial with a four-way controller on top, several dedicated function buttons and

Panasonic Reveals BGH1 Box 4K Cinema Camera; More Info at B&H

Capturing 4K60 10-bit images internally is just one of the numerous features of this simple-looking but highly complex camera. The small form factor is packed with features, making it well suited for drone or gimbal work, and the 4K sensor that captures up to 4096 x 2160p at 60/50 fps makes it a true cinema camera. It can also shoot in UHD at 60/50 as well as FHD (up to 240 fps). So, it is well suited for broadcast origination. One can use the Panasonic BGH1 as the primary camera for a host of production styles, while the high frame rate capabilities along with its small size make it an excellent choice to “stash” on a moving vehicle, or to hide out of the way for that hidden view. The MFT mount and M4/3″-sized sensor allow you to use it with numerous lenses, cine and still, new and vintage, in
