The GH6 was first unveiled as a development announcement back in May 2021 and the camera was supposed to ship in 2021, but due to the global shortage of key components, that date was subsequently pushed.

At the time of the original development announcement, Panasonic stated that the GH6 will accommodate a wide variety of recording modes and shooting assist functions, the LUMIX GH6 will deliver next-generation video performance built to satisfy a wide variety of creative requirements, redefining the possibilities for video recording in an interchangeable lens camera.

All that was mentioned at the time was the following:

  • New Sensor
  • New Processing Engine
  • Internal 4K DCI/UHD 4:2:2 10-bit up to 60p unlimited recording
  • 4K 120p HFR and VFR
  • 5.7K 10-bit up to 60p
  • Available within 2021
  • An estimated price of $2,500 USD

The GH5 used to stand out because of its internal recording capabilities and video-centric features, however, times have changed, and now just about everyone is offering feature-rich hybrids will full frame sensors and impressive specifications. The question many people will be asking is where does a M4/3 camera like the GH6 fit in 2022?
