Panasonic GH4 to Become the Most Expensive MFT Camera

It's been just over a month since Panasonic made the original announcement for GH4, and the official pricing for both the GH4 and the interface unit is availability now.

The GH4 camera body will be available at the beginning of May, at a retail price of US-$ 1,699.99, making it the most expensive Micro Four Thirds camera so far–but also the most capable. The interface unit for the GH4 can be purchased separately for US-$ 1,999.99, or in kit with the camera for a grand total of a little under US-$ 3,300.

Panasonic GH4 is clearly aimed at the professional videographer look for an affordable 4K Ultra_HD solution.  For some folks, the high price of GH4 is justifiable for sure.  But for others who just need a good compact interchangeable lens camera with HD video capability, it's a bit too pricey, especially when you can have an outstanding all around camera such as Olympus OM-D E-M1 for $1,399.

You can also check out the OM-D E-M1 video review to see if that suits your needs even though it's not in the same league as 4K Ultra HD found in GH4.

Panasonic also made available a full-fledged accessory interface unit that you won't find in any other Micro Four Thirds camera.
