No, it doesn’t by default have that giant thinger on the bottom or that microphone–those are instead accessories. Just in time for CP+, Panasonic is announcing the brand new GH4 mirrorless camera. This new addition will not replace the GH3 but instead sit above it kind of like what Canon does with the 1D X and 1D C. The new GH4 shoots two types of 4K video. At its heart, the company says that it houses a brand new 16.05 MP Live MOS Micro Four Thirds sensor. But otherwise, it mostly seems like it’s just like the GH3 with the exception of the revamps to the autofocusing that the company spoke about.

More specs and photos of the product are after the jump. Be sure to check Adorama for the listing.
