About the Lumix S5II

Panasonic is proud to announce the new hybrid full-frame mirrorless camera LUMIX S5II and S5IIX as the latest additions to its LUMIX S Series camera line-up. Combining Panasonic’s latest technologies, the new S5II and S5IIX were designed and developed based on the excellent performance in photo/video and stunning mobility of the LUMIX S5 to achieve a more assertive shooting style of ambitious creators.

Panasonic has developed a new 24.2-megapixel 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor that complies with PDAF (Phase Detection Auto-Focus). The imaging engine has also been newly developed to achieve high resolution, natural description, and approximately 2x higher-speed signal procession for high bit-rate video recording. The new sensor and engine combination achieves both PDAF and high image quality – a hallmark of LUMIX.

In tune with the adoption of PDAF, the AF system evolved into fast, accurate Phase Hybrid AF, making it even more dependable. Advanced subject detection and metering technologies to capture the target subject in focus even in adverse lighting conditions.
