The LUMIX commitment to superior image quality
24.2MP CMOS sensor with Dual Native ISO technology
Whether you are taking stills or recording 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 than before, enabling high-speed processing of higher-resolution, higher bit-rate video. It is equipped with jointly developed LEICA & LUMIX technology. Combination of the new sensor and engine achieves both Phase Detection AF and high image quality for photos and videos.
14+ stops of V-Log and V-Gamut "VariCam Look"
Offering compatibility with Cinema VariCam Look, 14+ stops of dynamic range, and a very wide colour spectrum, V-Log and V-Gamut come preinstalled. Users will enjoy impressively accurate colour reproduction, subtle gradations from dark areas to highlights, and precise control of colour data in post-production. The end result is more creative and satisfying colour expression. Moreover, footage shot with the LUMIX S5II can be seamlessly edited with footage shot with VariCam cameras.
The V-Log of the LUMIX S5II offers 14+ stops of dynamic range, which covers the PQ requirement of HDR, while V-Gamut covers the full HDR colour spectrum, giving users access to HDR shooting wherever, whenever.
