Capture life’s special moments as they happen - the new Dual Camera GH4 records Full HD 60i video and up to 10 megapixel digital photos.

Offering style, performance and value, the GH4 provides a convenient way to capture both videos and photos in daily life or for special events.

Style Design Made Simple
The GH4 packs cutting edge technology into a compact camera. Designed to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand, the GH4 features an easy to navigate menu which make it a great choice for the beginner and the more advanced user. It is the perfect blend of style, performance, and ease of use.

10 Megapixel Still Image Quality

In addition to Full HD 1080 Video the GH4 captures amazing 10 megapixel photos.

10X Dual Range Zoom (video)
5x Optical Zoom (photos)
While the GH4 measures in at just over 1" in width, it features a full 10X Dual Range Zoom for video.  With Sanyo’s 10X Dual Range Zoom Technology the field of view is dramatically increased. The photo zoom capability is 5x Optical Zoom.

Embedded Software for Sharing Videos and Photos
The GH4 features SANYO’s embedded software application for sharing videos and photos to social media websites. The first time the GH4 is connected to the PC, the Simple Uploader application installer will appear. The application installation takes less than one minute. Videos and photos can be tagged and quickly uploaded to Facebook™, YouTube™ and Picassa™ using the Simple Uploader.  A convenient link to Tweet on Twitter is available as well.

Large, 2.7 -inch Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)
The display flips out from the camera and rotates up to 285 degrees on an axis that allows you to take great video or still images from otherwise-difficult-to-view positions, proving to be especially useful when shooting in confined spaces.

This camera features a sequential "photo" shooting mode.  When the user selects this mode the camera will take multiple photos in sequential order; providing multiple photos frames.  The perfect solution for action photography!


Video and Photo Image Stabilizer
The GH4 features a new photo stabilizer.  This technology actually takes two photos at the same time; one at a faster shutter speed and one at a slower shutter speed.  The camera combines the benefits of both of the shutter speeds, resulting in an image that has less blur and less noise.

Using a proprietary Sanyo algorithm, the GH4 automatically compensates for distracting up-and-down or side-to-side camera movement, keeping your video and photo subjects steady and easy to follow. It accurately distinguishes between unintentional camera shake and deliberate camera movement. This handy feature operates in both wide-angle and telephoto modes.

Video and Photo Face Detectionhttps://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/G/01/electronics/camcorders/sanyo/VPCGH4/GH402._.jpg
The GH4 utilizes specialized video and photo face detection technology.  This feature recognizes multiple subjects’ faces and optimizes focus / aperture settings to ensure each individual is in focus.

Target a Color Function
The GH4 tracks and focuses on moving subjects, such as children or pets, by detecting their colors. Even if you close the LCD panel temporarily, tracking will resume when you start shooting again.

Eye Fi Compatibility
The GH4 features enhanced Eye-Fi compatibility.  This Dual Camera will automatically recognize the Eye-Fi wireless SD card when it is inserted.  The GH4 also has "smart power" on board which allows the cameras to control the Eye-Fi function and provide power management, automatically shutting the card off when not in use.

Windows 7 Compatible
The GH4 is fully supported by the latest Windows OS, "Windows 7", further expanding its capabilities. The video files are displayed in the same thumbnail format as still picture files. They can also be played back directly with Windows Media Player, are editable with Windows Live Movie Maker, and are Device Stage compatible. This makes the files even more convenient for use on computers.

Easy Playback of Recorded Video Directly on a TV
The GH4 camera features a mini-HDMI output which makes connecting it to a Digital TV or DVD Recorder a breeze.  The GH4 can also easily be connected to a computer to back-up copies of recorded content via the handy USB 2.0 connection. Still images and video clips are played back continuously and in chronological order.  When connected to a PC, simple drag-and-drop operation makes it easy to save recorded video clips and still images onto a computer's hard disk for emailing, editing or archiving.

Includes a High-Capacity Genuine Sanyo Brand Lithium-ion Battery
The DB-L80 is a high capacity battery designed to work with the Sanyo Dual Camera Xacti GH4 camera and delivers approximately 60 minutes of video record time or 210 minutes of continuous playback.  High-energy density design minimizes the battery size and weight, making it perfect for use in the Sanyo Dual Camera GH4. It designed to resist memory accumulation so it provides a full charge every time.

SDXC Memory Compatibility (over 64GB SD Cards)
While the GH4 works with standard SD memory, and more high capacity SDHC memory cards, it is also fully compatible with the next generation SDXC memory cards.   The GH4 can record to more than 64GB of content to SDXC memory cards. This dramatically improves your ability to record and transfer hours and hours of Full HD 1080 videos to a computer. You can also play GH4 Full HD 1080 videos stored on SDXC cards on your high definition TV.

Highly Advanced MPEG4 AVC/H.264 Video Compression
This feature optimizes the file size and makes sharing movies on social networking sites, or emailing them to friends and family, even easier.  In fact, the file size can be up to 25 percent smaller than that of typical MPEG-4 cameras.

To accomplish the complexity of encoding AVC/H.264 in real-time on the GH4, a dedicated H.264 video compression IC was incorporated into the camera that was designed specifically for portable consumer devices.  This achieves high video quality while simultaneously reducing the system power consumption.

Capture Still Images While You’re Shooting Video
The GH4 enables simultaneous shooting of video clips and still images with a simple press of the shutter button during the shooting of a movie clip. You will never need to miss another precious photo opportunity. (Depending on the mode used to take still images, simultaneous video clip shooting may be interrupted. While shooting video clips, using the digital image stabilizer may change the angle of view for still images.)

Super-fast Start-up
Reduce your chance of missing the perfect shot. The Dual Camera GH4 is designed for super fast start-up and shooting. With its tapeless design, the GH4 eliminates the need to queue up a video tape, allowing it to begin shooting in as little as 1.7 seconds.  When the GH4 is powered on, closing the LCD display puts it in standby mode. Simply open the display and the GH4 automatically powers up and can begin immediately recording in as little as 1.7 seconds.
