Video oriented mirrorless camera with a 24-megapixel full-frame image sensor under the hood. The camera has found application 5-axis matrix stabilization system Active IS. The stabilizer provides compensation of up to 5 stops of shutter speed or exposure when using only the matrix system and up to 6.5 stops when adding stabilization in the lens. Also, phase autofocus appeared in the model, more precisely, it is a hybrid and consists of 779 focusing points.
Henceforth, the Panasonic DC-S5 II body autofocus system recognizes people's faces and eyes, animal faces, and vehicles in the frame. Image processing is run by Panasonic and Leica's co-developed L² processor. For dessert, advanced video shooting capabilities are prepared in the model. The camera allows you to record footage in 3:2 aspect ratio from the full height of the sensor in 6K resolution up to 30 fps (4:2:0, 10-bit).
In the 4K frame format, from the full width of the matrix, it is allowed to record video with a frame rate of 30 fps, and from the APS-C zone at a frame rate of 60 fps. At the same time, it is possible to work with 4:2:2 subsampling and 10-bit color. Separately, the model features a vectorscope, LUT support, work with anamorphic optics, V Log/V Gamut, HLG. Unlimited video recording time is ensured by the built-in cooling fan. The footage is supposed to be stored on one of two UHS-II class SD memory cards (two slots are allocated for them). The body of the mirrorless camera is dust and moisture resistant.
