Panasonic Lumix DC-S5
Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 meshes capable video and photo capabilities with a portable body design. Beyond video, it caters to a versatile range of stills applications with 7 fps continuous shooting, ISO 100-51200 native range. And even a 96MP High-Res Shot mode. Regardless if working with photo or video, the S5 maintains a quick and accurate 225-area DFD autofocus system. With refined subject tracking, as well as 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization to minimize the appearance of camera shake.
In terms of physical design, the S5 borrows elements from the larger S1-series of cameras. But has a smaller footprint and lighter weight profile for improved portability. The S5 incorporated a 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder and a free-angle 3.0″ 1.84m-dot touchscreen LCD. And it has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for wireless connectivity.
Featuring a full-frame 24.2MP CMOS sensor and an updated Venus Engine. The S5 balances high sensitivity, a wide dynamic range, and speed. For working with fast-moving subjects, the S5 also enables full-res shooting at up to 7 fps with AF-S or 6 fps with AF-C. Or up to an impressive 60 fps continuous shooting when using 6Kor 4K PHOTO modes.
In addition to stills, the S5 also sports highly capable video recording assets, including full-frame UHD 4K30p internal recording with 4:2:2 10-bit colour and UHD 4K60p recording using an APS-C sensor area and 4:2:0 10-bit colour. Full HD recording at 60 fps, as well as 4K at 30 fps, is also supported with 8-bit colour and no recording time limits. Also, the high-speed recording is possible, up to Full HD at 180 fps, and anamorphic recording is also available.
