Panasonic's GH series of Micro Four Thirds interchangeable lens cameras have become popular amongst videographers thanks to their small design and high-quality output. While the body and overall layout of the GH4 feels similar to the older GH3, the new camera gets 4K video recording, a new AF system and better continuous shooting speeds.

The GH4 will be available in Australia in a number of different configurations. Body-only pricing will be AU$1999 which makes it incredibly competitive compared to other 4K-capable video cameras on the market — for example, the 4K-capable BlackMagic Production Camera is US$2999. In the US, the RRP of the GH4 is US$1699.

A single-lens kit complete with the 12-35mm f/2.8 lens will be AU$2999. A special interface unit adds other connectivity options such as XLR inputs and SDI control, as well as HDMI output for 4:2:2/10-bit video recording. This will cost AU$2649 on its own, or AU$3999 packaged with the GH4 body. All of the aforementioned configurations will be in Australia from early May 2014.

Also announced from Panasonic was a Leica Summilux 15mm f/1.7 Micro Four Thirds lens which is arriving in June for AU$799.
