Panasonic Stripped-Down GH4 4K Drone Camera/Gimbal Prototype

Newsshooter spotted two interesting prototype at photokina. It’s a fully functional GH4 that’s more suitable for drones and can be controlled via USB or wirelessly. There is also a prototype Panasonic drone gimbal in the video. If Panasonic gets serious about producing this we could see it in 2017, but maybe they will wait to do it with the GH5 guts.
