Panasonic has announced 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, it can be used in a variety of ways from shooting on drones,
IP remote control to live streaming and more.
The camera integrates a 10.2MP Live MOS Sensor with Dual Native ISO technology and the Venus Engine. It enables 4:2:0 10-bit C4K/4K 60p or 4:2:2 10-bit All-I C4k/4K 30p internal video recording. It also incorporates advanced deep learning technology that detects specific subjects like humans and fast-moving animals, including dogs, cats and birds.
The BGH1 is a compact, light-weight box-style camera, composed of aluminium and magnesium alloy. It has a new heat dispersion structure to achieve unlimited video recording and offers Power over Ethernet+ (PoE+), simplifying installations by providing power, signal and control over ethernet. 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. It is equipped with Dual UHS-II SD Card slots for backup recording or relay recording.
