The LUMIX S5 further realises a maximum ISO 51200 of crystal-clear high sensitivity video with the adoption of the Dual Native ISO technology.
The LUMIX S5 is the smallest and lightest S Series camera to date, measuring only 132.6 x 97.1 x 81.9 mm (approx) and with a body-only weight of 630g. This makes the S5 incredibly portable and easy to use for extended handheld shooting.
HDW : Stupidly Panasonic have opted for a Micro HDMI on this camera…BAD CHOICE. This is when you know your designers DO NOT use the camera in a professional environment.
