The Panasonic LUMIX S5 with 20-60mm Lens Kit delivers stunning image quality and greater creative scope. Packing the 24.2-megapixel 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor first introduced in the LUMIX S1 into a small, mobile and robust body. Allowing you to harness the incredible image quality of a powerful full-frame sensor, providing impressive low-light performance and incredibly high dynamic range. This kit is paired with the Panasonic LUMIX S 20-60mm F3.5-5.6 Lens which is one of Panasonic's lightest L-mount lenses to date with versatile normal zoom range from moderate wide-angle to portrait.
This hybrid full-frame mirrorless camera delivers exceptional video quality and impressive capabilities, including 4K 60p 10-bit internal recording and external output via HDMI, and a full Varicam V-log profile pre-installed in the Lumix S5. 4:3 Anamorphic Super 35 mode and up to 180 frames per second (fps) Slow Motion shooting is also possible. All backed by Panasonic's 5-axis Dual I.S. 2 image stabilisation system with up to 6.5-stops of camera shake correction for handheld shooting. The camera also incorporates an improved Deep Learning autofocus algorithm that detects specific subjects – humans and fast-moving animals – with great accuracy.
Creative aids for expressive photography include “Live View Composite”, newly-introduced to S Series with the S5, which combines multiple exposures into a single image that emphasises bright points while suppressing overexposure of the total image and maintaining the shadows, thus reducing the learning curve for light painting and long exposure photography. The S5 also features sensor-shift 96-megapixel (MP) high resolution mode, which can capture detailed landscapes with increased dynamic range and colour reproduction, with files created in-camera without the need for external software.
The Panasonic S5 camera's full magnesium alloy weather-sealed body is splash and dust resistant, allowing for working in a range of environmental conditions. Dual SD card slots offer further flexibility with relay recording and backup support. A large, high-resolution OLED viewfinder delivers quick response with minimum distortion for easy and accurate framing of the scene.
Panasonic LUMIX S 20-60mm F3.5-5.6 Lens
Tthe Panasonic LUMIX S 20-60mm F3.5-5.6 Lens, a super-compact and lightweight normal-zoom lens option for any full-frame L-mount mirrorless camera. With a range spanning from ultra-wide 20mm to 60mm standard/portrait, it offers fantastic versatility for everyday or travel photography - capturing subjects from landscape to lifestyle & portrait images. At just 350 grams, the lens is lightweight, compact and easy to carry.
With stunning close-up capabilities permitting working with subjects as close as 15cm with a 0.43x magnification for near-macro performance the lens’ wide viewing angle makes it easy to shoot in confined spaces indoors - particularly well suited for product or food photography.
In terms of optics, the lens incorporates a series of aspherical, high refractive index, and low dispersion elements to control a variety of aberrations and realize a high degree of clarity and sharpness. Comprising 11 elements in 9 groups, the use of 2 aspherical lenses and 3 ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lenses effectively suppresses both axial chromatic aberration and chromatic aberration of magnification. Astigmatism is also corrected with these aspherical lenses, achieving high resolving performance. Furthermore, a UHR (Ultra-High Refractive Index) lens achieves uniform image quality from the centre to edges of the image while contributing to downsizing of the lens unit. The filter diameter is 67 mm, with a 9-blade circular aperture diaphragm.
The Panasonic LUMIX S 20-60mm F3.5-5.6 Lens further adds to its credentials with a rugged dust/splash-resistant design to withstand use under harsh conditions down to a temperature of -10 degrees Celsius. In addition, a fluorine coating on the front lens element repels water and oil for easy cleaning.
