The Panasonic LUMIX S5 Body Only delivers stunning image quality and greater creative scope. Packing the 24.2-megapixel 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor first introduced in the LUMIX S1 into a small, mobile and robust body. Allowing you to harness the incredible image quality of a powerful full-frame sensor, providing impressive low-light performance and incredibly high dynamic range.

This hybrid full-frame mirrorless camera delivers exceptional video quality and impressive capabilities, including 4K 60p 10-bit internal recording and external output via HDMI, and a full Varicam V-log profile pre-installed in the Lumix S5. 4:3 Anamorphic Super 35 mode and up to 180 frames per second (fps) Slow Motion shooting is also possible. All backed by Panasonic's 5-axis Dual I.S. 2 image stabilisation system with up to 6.5-stops of camera shake correction for handheld shooting. The camera also incorporates an improved Deep Learning autofocus algorithm that detects specific subjects – humans and fast-moving animals – with great accuracy.

Creative aids for expressive photography include “Live View Composite”, newly-introduced to S Series with the S5, which combines multiple exposures into a single image that emphasises bright points while suppressing overexposure of the total image and maintaining the shadows, thus reducing the learning curve for light painting and long exposure photography. The S5 also features sensor-shift 96-megapixel (MP) high resolution mode, which can capture detailed landscapes with increased dynamic range and colour reproduction, with files created in-camera without the need for external software.

The Panasonic S5 camera's full magnesium alloy weather-sealed body is splash and dust resistant, allowing for working in a range of environmental conditions. Dual SD card slots offer further flexibility with relay recording and backup support. A large, high-resolution OLED viewfinder delivers quick response with minimum distortion for easy and accurate framing of the scene.

24 Megapixels Dual Native ISO Sensor with Stunning image quality

The Panasonic S5 has a 24.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor (35.6 mm x 23.8mm) with Dual Native ISO technology resulting in minimised noise and outstanding image quality from low to high sensitivity. Dual Native ISO provides a greater variety of artistic choices, with the ability to use less light if desired. The S5’s Dual Native ISOs are 640 and 4000 in V-Log. This feature teams up with the Venus Engine processor to deliver a maximum ISO of up to 51200.

Live View Composite
With the new Live View Composite function, Panasonic's S5 releases the shutter at designated exposure intervals and produces a single picture combining all the areas of high luminosity such as lights, stars or fireworks - while allowing the photographer to monitor the composite in Live View.

5-axis Dual I.S 2 Image Stablisation

Panasonic’s 5-Axis Dual I.S. 2 offers excellent stability in a range of situations. A high-precision gyrosensor joins the Dual I.S. system of 5-axis in-body stabilisation and 2-axis optical stabilisation in selected lenses for highly accurate shake detection and compensation. This makes it possible to use up to 6.5 stops slower shutter speed in both photo and video.

96 Megapixel High Resolution Sensor-Shift Mode

The 96MP High Resolution mode creates highly detailed images that can be turned into enormous prints or used in commercial imagery. Using sensor shift technology, it captures and combines eight consecutive images in-camera for outstanding results – from reproducing the delicate colours of natural landscapes to intricate fine arts, and can also be used when moving subjects are in the scene, by switching to the sub mode. It produces a 96-megapixel equivalent (12,000 x 8,000-pixel) RAW and/or JPEG image.


Ready for Exceptional Video Production

Panasonic has never been know to hold back on the video recording capabilities of their mirrorless cameras, and the S5 is no exception. The Panasonic Lumix S5 is capable of unlimited 4K 60p/50p 4:2:2 10-bit HDMI output and also delivers unlimited 4K 30p/25p 4:2:0 8-bit internal recording. In addition, 4K 60p/50p 4:2:0 10-bit and 4K 30p/25p 4:2:2 10-bit can be recorded internally for up to 30 minutes.

The Lumix S5 is also compatible with Panasonic’s DMWXLR1 microphone adaptor, allowing professional audio equipment to be used in video creation. Additionally, RAW video output via HDMI up to 5.9K will be available via a future firmware update.

14+ Stops Dynamic Range in V-Log
The camera features V-Log/V-Gamut with a wide dynamic range of 14+ stops, in line with the dynamic range of the Panasonic VariCam, to precisely capture everything from dark to bright areas. Subtle gradations such as skin tones are faithfully reproduced. Designed with consistent color management in mind, the recorded footage is easily matched with V-Log footage recorded by the LUMIX S1/S1H, or V-Log L footage recorded by the LUMIX GH5/GH5S, for an easier post production workflow. Practical tools like a Waveform Monitor and V-Log View Assist are included.

Up to 180 fps Slow Motion Recording

Slow & Quick mode enables impressive slow and quick motion video with autofocus, and can be accessed directly using the mode dial. In 4K the S5 achieves up to 30x quick or 2.5x slow motion at 1-60fps, and in FHD it achieves 60x quick or 7.5x slow motion at 1-180fps.

Note: The AF mode switches to MF when the frame rate is set to of 150 fps or more. The angle of view is reduced when the frame rate is set to 180 fps. Recording stops when the continuous recording time exceeds 30 minutes.

Live Straming (Beta)

For live streaming, LUMIX Tether for Streaming (Beta) with LIVE VIEW mode is available. LUMIX Sync for iOS/Android devices enables image transfer to a smartphone or tablet via easy wireless connection.


High-speed, High-precision Autofocus & Reliable Performance

Panasonic has achieved high-speed AF with its advanced control technology incorporating the major devices – lens, sensor and imaging engine. The lens and sensor communicate at a maximum 480 fps. Contrast AF with DFD technology allows the S5 to achieve an ultra high-speed, high-precision AF of approximately 0.08* sec. It also excels in low-light shooting, with -6EV** luminance detection performance in Low Light AF, thanks to the higher sensitivity and optimised tuning of the sensor.

Real-time AF Detection Technology
The S5 also incorporates an improved Deep Learning autofocus algorithm that offers greater accuracy in detecting specific subjects – including humans, people’s faces, and fast-moving animals. In addition to the eye, face and body, the head is also separately recognised by real-time detection technology to provide even more precise focusing. The camera keeps tracking subjects when they move quickly, turn away, tilt their head or move far away from the camera. Also, improvements to DFD technology have enhanced AFC, which allows the camera to keep tracking small or fast-moving subjects and capture them in crisp focus.

Splash/dust-resistant Magnesium Alloy Construction

To withstand heavy field use, the S5 has a magnesium alloy full die-cast body and is splash/dust-resistant***. With an optimum layout of heat dispersion components, heat is effectively transferred externally, which results in stable, continuous video recording for an extended time.

2,360K-dot high resolution OLED LVF

The large OLED LVF (Live View Finder) has a magnification ratio of approx. 0.74x, 2,360K-dot high resolution and a minimum time lag of less than 0.005 sec. A versatile free-angle 3.0-inch LCD rear monitor (3:2 aspect, approx.1840K-dot) with touch control allows for quick changes to settings, even when the user is in front of the camera.

Dual SD Card Slots

The S5 has dual SD Card slots - one slot complies with the high-speed, high-capacity UHS-II (Video Class 90) and the other with UHS-I. Users can select Relay Recording, Backup Recording or Allocation Recording modes.


Connectivity

Content sharing with smartphones is streamlined using Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy connection, Wi-Fi 5-GHz (IEEE802.11ac) and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi® (IEEE 802.11b/g/n). With an always-on Bluetooth connection, a smartphone can act as the camera’s remote control via the LUMIX Sync app. The settings of an S5 camera can also be copied and transmitted to other S5 cameras when shooting using multiple cameras.

LUMIX Tether

The S5 is compatible with the LUMIX Tether applications which enables tethered shooting via USB. Users can control the camera by connecting it to a PC. Images can be viewed on a large PC screen while shooting, which is useful in situations where continuous confirmation is required.

Notes

*** About motion picture recording / 6K PHOTO/4K PHOTO recording
- 6K PHOTO is a high speed burst shooting function that cuts a still image out of a 4:3 or 3:2 video footage with approx. 18-megapixel (approx. 6000 x 3000 effective pixel count) that the 6K image manages.
- Use a card with SD Speed Class with "Class 4" or higher when recording motion pictures in [MP4 (under 28Mbps)].
- Use a card with SD Speed Class with "UHS-I / UHS-II UHS Speed Class 3 (U3)" when recording motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K], [MOV], [S&Q], [6K PHOTO] or [4K PHOTO]. (SD speed class is the speed standard regarding continuous writing.)
- Recording stops when the continuous recording time exceeds 30 minutes in [4K/60p] [4K/50p] [4K-A/50p] [4K/4:2:2 10-bit] [4K-A/4:2:2 10-bit] [4K/4:2:0 10-bit] [4K-A/4:2:0 10-bit] [S&Q].
- Recording stops when the continuous recording time exceeds 15 minutes in [6K PHOTO] [4K PHOTO].
- MP4 motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K]:
- When using an SDHC memory card: You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB or 30 minutes, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.
- When using an SDXC memory card: You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 96 GB or 3 hours 4 minutes in length, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.
- MP4 motion pictures with [MP4] in [FHD]:
- You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB or 30 minutes in length, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.
- MOV motion picture with [MOV]
- When using an SDHC memory card: You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB or 30 minutes, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.
- When using an SDXC memory card: You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 96 GB or 3 hours 4 minutes in length, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.
- 4:2:2 10-bit recording is a recording mode for film production and the video needs to be processed on PC. The original video cannot be played on standard TV, Blu-ray Disc™ recorder and Blu-ray Disc™ player. It may cause problems such as freezing when played on these devices.
- When the ambient temperature is high or continuous recording is performed, the camera may stop the recording to protect itself. Wait until the camera cools down.

*** For [4K/60p] [4K/50p] video output, use an HDMI2.0 cable that has the HDMI logo on it, and that is described as "4K compatible".
