Panasonic Lumix S5 review: Incredible video power in a smaller package

 

The Lumix S5 is Panasonic's answer to Canon's EOS R6 and is the best video-centric camera in its price range. It's smaller and costs less than the Lumix S1, but it actually delivers better video features. That includes a flip-out display, five-axis...

4K 10-bit video ; 5-axis stabilization ; Flip-out display ; Compact size ; Faster autofocus

Poor contrast-detect autofocus ; Poor electronic viewfinder ; Slow photo burst speeds

Canon’s $2,500 EOS R6 has higher internal data rates and superior Dual Pixel phase-detect autofocus, plus it’s better for still photography. However, the S5 is $500 cheaper and should suffer less from overheating issues that can cripple video recording...

Panasonic Lumix S5 review: A true enthusiast’s camera

 

The Lumix S5 is Panasonic's true answer to the Sony A7 III and Nikon Z 6. There's still room for improvement, but it scores big wins in design and video.

Excellent design, build quality ; Improved face/eye autofocus ; 96MP high-resolution mode ; Unlimited 4K/30 recording ; 30-minute 4K/60

Low-resolution EVF ; Autofocus lags behind competition ; Slow continuous shooting

Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 Review

 

Excellent 24MP full-frame sensor ; 5-axis IBIS ; Improved DFD focus system ; 10-bit 4K60 video ; 5.9K ProRes Raw with Ninja V ; Dust and splash protection ; Superb ergonomics ; Dual SDXC card slots

L-mount lens library still growing ; Tracking focus limited to 6fps

The Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 is a slimmer, more affordable full-frame camera, with loads of appeal for photographers shopping for an entry-level or midrange model.

Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 initial review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 is a full-frame mirrorless camera but in a body smaller than the Micro Four Thirds GH5. It includes updates to Panasonic's DFD autofocus system, creative photo modes, and video features that come close to matching the more...

Panasonic Lumix S5 review

 

Could the Panasonic Lumix S5 be the best $2,000/£2000 camera on the market? It makes a strong case

Best in-class video performance ; Compact full-frame quality ; Magnesium frame and vari-angle screen ; Dual SD card slots

HDMI port not full-size ; Only Contrast AF

Despite its compact size, the Lumix S5 shares the impressive 24MP CMOS sensor housed in the Lumix S1, but with improved AF. It also has a tough weather-resistant body and delivers up to 6.5-stops of image stabilisation with compatible lenses. Its...

Panasonic Lumix S5 review: The full-frame 4K master

 

If you're looking for a small-scale full-frame camera that's also a video capture ace then there's nothing to outclass the S5 at this price point.

Compact for a full-frame camera ; Great design and build ; Relatively affordable for its spec and performance ; Reliable autofocus/people tracking ; Charges via USB-C ; Two SD card slots

4K60p crops down to APS-C ; Focus selector button could be easier to adjust ; Only one of the SD card slots is UHS-II

This well-made and compact full-frame camera doesn't cost a whole lot more than the Micro Four Thirds video champ: the GH5. And it's cheaper than its larger-scale full-frame sibling: the Lumix S1. So, whichever way you look at it, the Lumix S5 is...
