The Panasonic S5 blends the high demands of advanced photographers with robust video recording options, making it the ideal tool for hybrid assignments and projects. Panasonic worked alongside the L Mount Alliance (consisting of Leica and Sigma) to develop high quality L mount lenses to pair with this camera (lenses not included). This system features a large 51.6mm mount diameter and a short 20mm flange distance (the distance between a lens' mount and the surface of the sensor). Having larger optical elements very close to the sensor means fewer aberrations, greater brightness, and better image performance overall. Here are some of the other standout features of this camera:

  • Dual Native ISO and wide 14+ stop dynamic range.
  • 96MP High-Res Shot mode.
  • Unlimited UHD 4K at 23.976p/25p/29.97p.
  • V-Log pre-installed, along with Cinelike D2/V2, HDR, and HLG.
  • 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization technology.
  • Depth-From-Defocus AF system for accelerated performance.

This camera is ideal for those seeking some of the professional qualities of the Varicam and the EVA1 but in a portable and more affordable package that can support the needs of event, narrative, and documentary shooters without giving up the needs of event photographers, making the Panasonic S5 the ultimate multidisciplinary camera.
