Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 II

The Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 II is an update to the Panasonic Lumix DC-S5, their mid-range full-frame stills and video mirrorless camera. The latest version adds a new 24MP CMOS sensor with phase detection autofocus, a new mode of IS for video, an improved burst mode, and a new processing engine created under the L² partnership with Leica. It joins a growing number of bodies that use the L mount shared with Leica and Sigma.

This version of the camera has a stills photography focus with some advanced video functions. A Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 IIX is slated to arrive later in 2023, which will have all the features of this model plus a few additional professional video settings.
