DJI, will the current Zenmuse GH4 gimbal support the new Lumix GH5 camera?  Or is there a new gimbal in development specifically for GH5?

Thank you

There is a pretty significant dimension and weight difference between the two cameras and button configuration. I would not be able to guarantee that the GH5 would fit and balance properly on the GH4 gimbal, nor that the connections would be in the same place. At this time, there are no plans to create a gimbal specific to the GH5. Given the release of the Ronin Mx, which can be used as either a ground use gimbal or aerial gimbal to the M600, you could pair the GH5 to that and have a large range of lens options.

Hi Jamie. I still can't get my GH4 to produce smooth footage using the M600 & Mx. Any tips please. Thanks in advance.

Could you clarify how the footage isn't smooth? Do you see a lot of vibration, or are the pan and tilt movement jerky?

Hi, NO! It is not possible to use an GH5 on a Z15 Gimbal.
I get one and tested it on my Z15-GH4 Gimbal.

What was the issue with fitting it?
Was it the physical size or balance?
Or just the HDMI connectivity?
If the base plate vs lens clamp height is okay, it should be able to be re-balanced...

Hi, the issue is the physical size of the GH5.
The baseplate of the Z15 have to be approx. 5mm
lower to fit into the lens-hole of the Z15.

Maybe i will try to develop a baseplate that fix the
physical problem. What's happen witch balance? I
will see!

Hi, did you find a way to make the GH5 fit into the Zenmuse GH4?

Very interested in doing this myself.. :-)
