Euphoria | Underwater with the Panasonic Lumix GH5

Video by Ambassador Matt Jacobs

Enjoy this peaceful meditation on the beauty of the underwater world by Panasonic LUMIX Ambassador Matt Jacobs. All footage was taken with the Panasonic LUMIX GH5 camera, Panasonic 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye lens, and ambient light.

The GH5 is Panasonic's flagship mirrorless camera with a number of features that make it perfect for the underwater videographer. It shoots 4K/60p footage with no crop and supports 10-bit 4:2:2 internal recording. The camera body has built-in 5-axis image stabilization and an ultra-high resolution electronic viewfinder (EVF).

The housing is pictured with the optional Trim Weight System # 47140. Unlike most trim weight systems on the market, it attaches without tools and adds virtually no weight to your luggage. Simply add a standard scuba weight when you arrive at your destination. The weight can be adjusted front to back for perfect distribution for any lens and port combination.
