It may be the first mirrorless model to shoot 4K video, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 compact system camera is no one-trick pony. Among other things, it also has a new 16.05-million-pixel Live MOS sensor

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 review – The competition

As far as competition goes, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 is pretty much in a league of its own, as there is no other standalone device currently on the market that matches its features, portability and functionality. That said, being a true hybrid device, it will face strong competition on many fronts.

For anyone who is looking for a great stills camera in a compact form, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 is largely the mould from which the photographic technology featured in the GH4 was cast, and it still performs well and can now be picked up for almost half the price of the GH4. Then there is competition from the increasing number of hybrid DSLRs from other manufacturers at a similar or lower price point, with the distinct advantage of carrying larger sensors – the Nikon D7100, Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Sony’s recently announced Alpha 77 II, for example.
