The Panasonic Lumix S5 IIX is an enhanced version of the standard Panasonic Lumix S5 IIX with extensive video and streaming features designed with professional content creators in mind. Key features include:
HDMI RAW video output; ALL-Intra and ProRes recording
SSD recording and playback via USB
Wireless/wired IP streaming; USB smartphone tethering
6K30p 4:2:0 10-bit video; on-sensor autofocus system
Pro-Grade Video Features. The Panasonic Lumix S5 IIX differentiates itself from its sibling, the standard Panasonic Lumix S5 II, through the inclusion of an array of advanced video features aimed at professional content creators. You get HDMI RAW video-data output; support for recording to and playback from external SSDs via USB; ALL-Intra and ProRes recording; and wireless IP streaming, wired IP streaming, and USB tethering to smartphones.
Updated Sensor and Processing Engine. The S5 IIX’s updated 24.2MP CMOS sensor features on-sensor phase detection for the first time on a Panasonic camera. A new processing engine, developed in partnership with Leica, works in tandem with the sensor to enable full-resolution shooting at up to 9 fps with the mechanical shutter and up to 30 fps with the electronic shutter. You also get great low-light performance, a 100-51,200 ISO range that’s expandable to 50-204,800, and enhanced color reproduction and suppressed noise levels throughout the camera’s sensitivity range. This camera can also record stills in 65:24 and 2:1 panoramic formats, 1:1 square format, and 16:9 format.
L-Mount Alliance. This camera’s wide-diameter lens mount is a joint collaboration between Leica, Panasonic, and Sigma that’s focused on a line of premium cameras & lenses in a mirrorless format. At 51.6mm mount diameter and just 20mm flange distance, the L-mount is well-suited for fast-aperture full-frame optics with compact dimensions.
6K30p, DCI 4K, and UHD 4K Video. The Lumix S5 IIX offers full-frame, open-gate 6K30p video capture with 4:2:0 10-bit color for up to half an hour, and unlimited video capture in DCI and UHD 4K60p 4:2:2 10-bit mode. You also get 120p capture for high-res slow-motion video. The 6K30p option uses the entire sensor to produce a 3:2 aspect ratio file that you can re-crop to any other aspect ratio you need, including 9:16, 1:1, 16:9, and 2.2:1. It features clean HDMI output to an external recorder, a built-in stereo mic for quick audio capture, and 3.5mm mic and headphone jacks for advanced audio recording and monitoring needs. Please note that for 6K and 4K capture, you must use an SD memory card that’s UHS-I Class 3 or faster.
Post-Production Optimization. The S5 IIX comes with V-Log pre-installed. This gamma lets you capture a flat, neutral gamma curve and an equivalent 14+ stops of dynamic range, giving you precise control for color grading in post and seamless editing with VariCam footage. Dual Native ISO uses two dedicated circuits per pixel to keep noise low and sensitivity high, facilitating shooting in a wide range of lighting conditions.
Phase Hybrid Autofocus System. The S5 IIX and S5 II are the first Lumix mirrorless cameras to incorporate an on-sensor Phase Hybrid autofocus system, which uses 779 phase-detection points to facilitate fast and highly accurate performance, even in backlit or low-light shooting situations. Three distinct subject-based tracking modes help to ensure maximum accuracy. Human + Animal Tracking mode will track any of the subjects you’ve trained it to recognize and will prioritize animals; Human mode tracks humans by detecting and prioritizing eyes, then faces, then heads, and then bodies; and Face/Eye detection only focuses on eyes and faces in the frame.
Dual I.S. 2 Image Stabilization. This system uses five-axis sensor-shift stabilization to compensate for roughly 6.5 stops of camera shake, giving your hand-held shots utmost sharpness. A newly developed Active I.S. system improves stabilization when you’re shooting video while you walk.
OLED EVF and Rear Touchscreen LCD. The high-resolution 3.68m-dot OLED EVF gives you a clear 0.78x magnification and a smooth 60 fps or 120 fps changeable refresh rate. You can use the 1.84m-dot 3.0-inch rear touchscreen LCD for menu navigation and image composition, review, and playback. The LCD’s free-tilting design lets you work from low and high angles, even when you’re shooting in vertical orientation.
Other Notable Features. The built-in cooling fan keeps the camera’s internal temperature low during extended shoots. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity provide wireless control and viewing options via the free Lumix Sync App for Android and iOS. This camera has two UHS-II compatible SDHC/XC memory-card slots (remember, UHS-I Class 3 or faster for 4K video), and the rechargeable DMW-BLK22 battery is rated for approximately 370 shots per charge when using the rear monitor or the EVF.
For 4K capture, you must use a memory card that’s UHS-I Class 3 or faster.
No! While Panasonic has a wide variety of Micro 4/3 cameras and lenses, the full-frame S5 IIX camera uses a completely different lens mount, the L-mount.
