High Quality Images and Cinema Quality In A Compact Body
Introducing the Lumix S5. A hybrid (video/still) feature packed full frame mirrorless camera with the flagship features of the Lumix S series in a small light camera which is affordable and is essentially lighter and smaller than the Panasonic GH-5
Uncompromising Image Quality
24.2 MB which is more than enough for high quality printing and display on digital devices
96 MB Hi-Res if you're working on high-quality professional massive print jobs, in JPG or RAW file formats.
Amazing Live View Composite which helps you take the guesswork out of long exposure photography
Dual Native ISO sensor which is a way of exploiting the S5's sensor information to extend its dynamic range, and reduce the level of signal noise that is produced. The sensor will therefore be able to read two native ISOs on the sensor instead of one. The result will be cleaner output at higher ISOs
Video Performance with Cinema Quality
4K 60p & 4K 30p native unlimited. Full 4K video and upto 60 full frames per second are recorded and it is no surprise that 60 frames per second capture more details of a motion than 30 frames per second. Therefore 60p is a good format for action sports. Most video is shot at 24, 25 or 30 frames per second
10-bit Recording/Output - 10-bit recordings can display up to 1.07 billion colors, while an 8-bit photo can only display 16.7 million. Practically speaking, if you are just going to save this to YouTube or Facebook, you may not need more than 8-bit. If you intend to edit the video you may quickly see the difference. 8-bit video is prone to banding when you start manipulating areas that require a smooth gradient of color.
14+ stop V-Log/V-Gamut - increased dynamic range, improved retention of midtones. The full V-Log is pre-installed.
Slow/Quick Motion allows you to shoot with a frame rate that is different from the playback frame rate, you can record images to be played back as slow motion or quick motion images
HDR/4K 60p Time Lapse which essentially stitches a number of photos into a video
Mic / Headphone Socket - A microphone input allows you to take the step up into dedicated audio equipment. Accessories such as lavalier and shotgun microphones offer much improved audio quality over the camera’s built-in microphone. The headphones jack allows you to monitor your recording
Two XLR Audio Inputs using the Panasonic DMW-XLR1 (see bonus pre-order offer) for high res audio.
Vast Focus Performance Improvements Compared To Earlier S Series Cameras
These enhancement will be incorporated in a firmware update to the S1, S1R and S1H later in the year

From sweeping landscapes to intricate details, this lens equips creatives with the versatility to shoot a broad range of subjects while maximizing the full-frame resolution of the S Series.
* At 15cm with focal length 26mm
** Closest focusing distance 15cm (at 20-26mm) / 40cm at 60m
Rugged Design for Demanding Weather Conditions
Designed to complement the rugged build quality of the S Series camera range, the lens is dust, splash and freeze-resistant down to -10°C. A fluorine coating employed on the front of the lens repels dirt and smudges, ensuring maximum optical clarity.
This uncompromising construction gives you the confidence to capture the shot, even in bad weather.
* Dust and Splash Resistant does not guarantee that damage will not occur if the lens is subjected to direct contact with dust and water.
Designed for the Modern Content Creator
Well suited to the modern content creator, the lens is equally accomplished in photo and video scenarios. Its high-speed, high-precision AF performance works well for freezing fast action and tracking moving subjects. A smooth zoom control ring is combined with a smooth electronically controlled aperture for excellent video results, even in difficult lighting conditions. In addition, the silent design of the lens is perfect for sensitive scenarios such as speeches and ceremonies while also ensuring audio capture is not compromised.
