Phase Hybrid AF for aggressive shooting
The most important thing in autofocus is to be dependable. The new Phase Hybrid AF delivers speed and accuracy to help you capture the target subject even in the most challenging scenes where multiple subjects are involved, and even in backlit or low-light environments.
Great for shooting as you walk: Active I.S. Technology
New Active I.S. lets you walk and shoot at the same time. By determining the status of camera shake and optimising correction ratios, Active I.S. can compensate for even significant camera shake, approximately 200% more than conventional systems.
Heat management for unlimited recording time
4:2:2 10-bit C4K/4K 60p/50p unlimited recording time. With a compact body equivalent to the S5, the LUMIX S5II’s new optimised heat dissipation structure enables extended recording even when shooting at heavy loads (e.g. high-resolution video over 4K, HFR video).
*The camera may stop recording when used in a temperature that is lower or higher than the recommended operating temperature (0 to 40 degrees). Recording stops when the continuous recording time exceeds 30 minutes in [6K/29.97p] [6K/25.00p] [5.9K/29.97p] [5.9K/25.00p] when Thermal Management mode is set to Standard.
24.2MP CMOS sensor with Dual Native ISO technology
Whether you are taking stills or shooting video, the LUMIX S5II delivers uncompromising image quality, combining high resolution and a Phase Detection AF. Moreover, utilising Dual Native ISO technology familiar to users of Panasonic Varicam models for professionals, the S5II leverages a dual-base ISO setting to minimise noise and maximise image quality from low to high sensitivity. This feature teams up with a new engine to deliver maximum ISO 51200 / Extended ISO 204800 for minimal noise at high sensitivity and beautiful expression of dark areas in the frame. Whenever professional-level low-light shooting is required, the LUMIX S5II is ready for action. The new engine delivers approximately twice the processing power as before, enabling high-speed processing of higher-resolution, higher bit-rate video. It is equipped with technology invested and developed jointly by LEICA and LUMIX. Combination of the new sensor and engine achieves both Phase Detection AF and high image quality for photos and videos.
Tough body for a wide range of weather conditions
The tough body is ready to take on a variety of challenging shooting environments. The magnesium alloy full die-cast frame is highly durable, while sealing helps protect seam, dial, and button. The camera as a whole is dust- and splash-resistant. In combination, these features help make shooting both productive and enjoyable in a wide range of weather conditions.
