Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 II Review

 

Excellent 24MP photos ; Records up to 6K30 video with 10-bit color ; 5-axis sensor stabilization ; Magnesium chassis with dust and splash protection ; Robust, customizable controls ; Active cooling for long-form recording

Struggles with continuous autofocus ; Underwhelming battery life

The Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 II is one of the most feature-rich full-frame video cameras you can buy, but its unreliable continuous autofocus system limits its appeal for stills.

Panasonic Lumix S5 II Review

 

Finally! The new Lumix S5 II is the first ever Panasonic camera to have a phase hybrid detection AF system, answering the critics of its contrast-based DFD system. But does this powerful hybrid photo and video camera have what it takes to beat its main...

Panasonic Lumix S5 II review

 

They did it! Panasonic answers its critics by introducing a camera with a phase hybrid detection AF system. But is that enough to make the Lumix S5 II a creator's dream?

Panasonic Lumix S5 II review: time to switch?

 

The full package for photo and video creators

Uncropped video is versatile for social ; Super-effective image stabilization for handheld work ; Phase detection AF completes the video package

Slow-motion, wide-angle 4K video hampered by 1.5x crop ; No tally light ; AF subject detection simpler than rivals

It’s hard to pick a fault with the Panasonic Lumix S5 II. It feels solid in the hand, and is a reliable workhorse in use, with intuitive controls and offering plenty of oomph. There’s sharp 6K video, 24MP full-frame stills, incredible image...

Panasonic Lumix S5 II review: a serious upgrade

 

Panasonic finally joins the phase-detect autofocus bandwagon, so should the Lumix S5 Mk2 be your mirrorless camera upgrade?

Best-in-class stabilisation ; Unlimited video recording up to 6K/30p ; Consistently quick and accurate AF

Flip out screen blocked by cables ; Sony competition is strong ; No Tally Lights

Panasonic has consistently delivered great cameras that produce beautifully natural tones, top-tier dynamic range, and class-leading image stabilisation. But despite the quality of its full-frame S-series bodies and L-Mount optics, the lack of...

Panasonic Lumix S5II initial review: The camera we've been waiting for?

 

We got the chance to take the new camera on a stroll around the picturesque streets of Valencia, and here's what we found out.

Impressive phase hybrid autofocus system ; Excellent image stabilisation ; Improved EVF ; 6K video capture ; 30 fps bursts with 200 frame buffer

No high frame-rate video in 4K ; A bit pricier than its predecessor

We haven't spent long enough with the S5II to deliver a full verdict, but first impressions are very positive. If the camera holds up to more rigorous testing, it might just be Panasonic's best camera so far.
