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...

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 initial review

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...
