Panasonic Lumix GH4 price and release date for US, UK

By Updated on

If you are looking for the best cameras in 2014, one camera that you may want to consider buying is the new Panasonic Lumix GHX. It offers 4K video support, being one of the few cameras in the market to actually offer true 4K shooting.

Consumers have been tracking the Lumix GH4 for many weeks and now we’re pleased to bring you the vital information you are after. We now have an update on the Panasonic Lumix GH4 price and release date for our readers in the US and UK who are keen to splash out on one of these.

We can tell you that the Lumix GH4 will first be available this April in the US, while those in the UK can expect to see the Lumix GH4 shipping on or just after May 5 2014.

As expected for a brand new 4K shooter, the camera won’t be cheap. US pricing has been set around $1700, while UK consumers will have to pay £1300 for the luxury – over $2000 USD on a straight up currency conversion which is never nice to see.

What you’ll get for that price though is Panasonic’s new 16.05MP Live MOS sensor which features the latest Venus Engine IX. It also has 4K video performance at either 30/25/24fps at 100Mbps and an magnesium alloy design to ensure that the exterior is just as sexy as the interior.

Further information as well as the ability to pre-order can be found at Panasonic’s online website here.

Let us know if you are interested in picking one of these up for the Summer, or if you think 4K technology is still beyond your price range.

    “….As expected for a brand new 4K shooter, the camera won’t be cheap. US pricing has been set around $1700…” Geez, this is not expensive by any means…. really?

      I don’t think they mean it’s expensive compared to the ridiculously overpriced professional cameras. I just preordered the camera with 1 lens, ND filter, a small bag, and a strap with free shipping and no tax and it cost me over $3000. By most peoples standards, I don’t believe that is considered inexpensive. I still haven’t even ordered the proper memory cards for 4k capture because they cost $160 for roughly 25 minutes of footage (and, well the cards would be useless to me without the camera which won’t ship for another 2 weeks).

      I’m planning on taking this camera on my honeymoon (which cost me about the same amount as my first order) and now I have to figure out how I’m gonna dump all the media since I can’t even put 3 hours of footage on a 2TB hard drive. I also have to buy new editing software since my current version wont do 4k. All of this just so I can fully enjoy the quality in 10 years when I actually buy a 4k TV.

      So, yes. It really is expensive.
      But if you still feel that this is inexpensive and are feeling generous, please send all items/cash my way.

        But in 10 years, 8k or something else might probably be the cinema and hi-end TV standard, with 4k being kind of what SD or 720p is now.
