Panasonic has unveiled its first box-style mirrorless camera. The LUMIX BGH1 is based on the Micro Four Thirds system. Panasonic designed the camera with various video production needs in mind, including multicamera setups, drone use and livestreaming.

The LUMIX BGH1 has a Power over Ethernet+ connector, meaning you can use the same cable to both power it and connect it to a network, though you can still use AC power. The camera boasts a 10.2-megapixel sensor. It can capture 10-bit Cinema 4K footage at 4:2:0 quality levels at up to 60 frames per second or up to 30 fps at 4:2:2. The system also supports full HD filming at up to 240 fps.

The LUMIX BGH1 has a double SD card slot, 2.4GHz WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2, along with USB-C 3.1, 3G-SDI and HDMI ports. There’s also a 3.5mm audio in/out jack, but unfortunately, there’s no built-in screen.

The LUMIX BGH1 measures 93mm by 93mm by 78mm and it weighs just 545 grams. You’ll be able to control up to 12 of the cameras at the same time with the LUMIX Tether for Multicam PC software. You can also create your own USB camera controllers with a free SDK Panasonic is releasing.

The camera costs $2,000 in the US and £1,900 in the UK. It’ll be available in mid-November.
