Panasonic's next GH mirrorless camera with 4K to arrive late February for under $2000

I will get one if the GH 4K specs are true since I still have the GH1, GH2 with four m4/3rd lenses like the 25mm F0.95 Nokton along with adapters for my PK mount lenses.

With plenty of 4K displays in Panasonic's booth, it's appropriate the firm's finally shown off a camera in its GH line that records 4K video. The company's keeping most of the hardware's specs close to its collective vest, but a representative was able to divulge a few details. UHD content can be recorded at 200 Mbps, and output in a full live feed via a mini-HDMI port (thanks to ALL-I Intra mode) to display on a computer or record to a hard drive. Of course, the Micro-Four Thirds shooter can save footage straight to an SDXC card -- a UHS Class 3 prototype variant tuned for such a task was on display -- though space will run out fairly quickly.

There's no word how many megapixels the cam totes, but it will be able to simultaneously snap photos while recording video. More details are set to arrive with the camera's official release in late February, when it'll arrive with a price tag of $2,000 or less. In the meantime, look out below for a glimpse of the shooter in the gallery.

I'm excited though I wish it were closer to $1300. Should be interesting to see if they reduced the DR because you can't downsample as far at 4K...

youtube is working on 4k streaming capability, reportedly using it's own vp9 codec... at least a dozen hardware manufacturers are behind the new standard.

there won't be anything to view it on, lol, but it'll be here before long.

4K is indeed coming. 4K monitors and TV's are starting to flood the consumer market at affordable prices. The VP9 and H.265 codecs are allowing platforms like Netflix and YouTube to stream 4K video at a data rate pretty comparable to the current 1920x1080 standard.

Hell, I even read that 4K porn is rolling out.... Prepare yourselves for an increased detail overload....

Sears sells a 55" 4K UHD TV for $799.99 and Vizio just showed a 50" 4K UHD TV at CES for $1,000 so 4K display prices will be dropping fast this year.

Is 4k really noticeable on a 50 inch screen? I can see for the folks projecting onto a 100 inch screen or more, but seems overkill to me, but I'm far from an expert.

Also what kind of bandwidth is this going to require to move about? Will a dvd at current density hold a 4k movie?

A DVD does not show HD movies, you need a blu-ray disk. Netflix is starting 4K streaming next month and here is a 2160p 4K trailer of House of Cards season 2 :
