Panasonic LUMIX S5II 24.2MP Full Frame Mirrorless Camera with Hybrid AF and Active I.S Technology

The Panasonic LUMIX S5II Mirrorless Camera delivers outstanding results in both photo and video. The 24.2-megapixel 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor complies with PDAF (Phase Detection Auto-Focus) with 5-axis Dual I.S. 2 image stabilization and an imaging engine that's been designed to provide high resolution, natural description, and approximately 2x higher-speed signal procession for high bit-rate video recording. Boasting a high dynamic range and broad colors of a 14+ stop V-Log/V-Gamut capture, and an advanced heat dispersion mechanism for unlimited video recording and live streaming, the LUMIX S5II readily meets the demands of upcoming creators.

24.2-Megapixel 35mm Full-Frame CMOS Sensor

The 35MM Full-Frame CMOS Sensor has been designed to offer high resolution, natural description, and about 2x higher-speed signal processing, powered by L Technology.

Speedy, Accurate Phase Hybrid Autofocus

With advanced subject detection and metering technologies, the LUMIX S5II lets you capture the target subject in focus even in poor lighting conditions. Once locked on the subject, the AF keeps tracking despite multiple moving objects.

Active Image Stabilization

The newly developed Active I.S. of the Panasonic LUMIXS5II supports walking shots. This feature further enhances image stabilization while recording videos.

Excellent Video Functionality

14+ stop V-Log/V-Gamut capture achieves a high dynamic range and broad colors, plus a REAL TIME LUT function enables in-camera photo and video color grading, with LUT6K 30p Open Gate unlimited recording.

Endless Recording

The LUMIX S5II features a heat dispersion mechanism that combines a small fan and a high-efficiency heat sink to offer unlimited video recording while maintaining a compact design for the camera.
