This hybrid full-frame mirrorless camera provides exceptional image quality for photo and video across the sensitivity range within an ergonomic body designed for the quality conscious content creator.
The CMOS sensor has been optimised to deliver exceptional image quality for both stills and video, while the Dual Native ISO provides a greater level of flexibility when shooting in lower light conditions without the usual increase in visible noise when shooting video.
Whether you prefer shooting using the full touch capabilities of the 3.0inch 1.84Mio. dot free-angle LCD – in both recording and playback modes, or the OLED live viewfinder, have confidence in what you are shooting. The time-lapse and stop-motion features offer you that little extra creativity while the improved high resolution mode photos can now be saved directly as a JPEG for extremely detailed, 96-megapixel-equivalent images for those moments when resolution is everything.
The needs of the content creator vary from job to job, the LUMIX S5 includes recording modes of 4K 60p 4:2:0 10-bit and 4K 30p 4:2:2 10-bit — plus 4K 8-bit with no limitation of video recording time. In the 10-bit setting, 4:2:2 10-bit HDMI output is supported along with simultaneous external drive / SD card recording, meaning flexibility and creativity are available whenever you head out on a shoot.
Image Stabilisation is a requirement for content creators on the run. The 5-axis Dual I.S. II system combines in-body and lens stabilisation giving you up to 6.5 stops of benefit on the LUMIX S5, giving you greater confidence that you will get the shot you need.
Creative options at your fingertips, the LUMIX S5 gives you a range of features and functions that will help your ability to tell stories in new and creative ways. V-Log and V-Gamut come preinstalled. With 14+ stops of dynamic range and a wide colour gamut, the Panasonic S5 offers performance to rival high-end production cameras.
The updated auto-focus system in the LUMIX S5 offers all the inherent benefits of a contrast based AF system, with improved tracking performance. The updated system features high-speed, high-precision AF, and deep learning technology for recognition of human bodies, heads, faces and eyes as well as animals, for improved reliability.
The LUMIX S5 is 30% lighter than the S1 weighing only 714g and smaller than the GH5 without compromising on image quality for either stills or video. It features a premium design and build quality, with a magnesium alloy frame and a splash and dust resistant* construction – providing you with peace of mind when shooting in a range of environments.
*Dust and splash resistant does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this camera is subjected to direct contact with dust and water.

NB: Ref. Autofocus:
When using the supplied Sigma MC-21 adapter for Canon EF mount lenses, the continuous autofocus function (AF-C) will not be available with any lenses (this is a limitation of the adapter). Single shot autofocus (AF-S) and manual focus will function as expected - although (dependent on the exact EF lens used) the autofocus speed may be slightly reduced.
