Professional Video Capabilities
We have to start with the S5’s video capabilities. The LUMIX S5 is capable of 4K 60p/50p 4:2:0 10-bit, 4K 30p/25p 4:2:2 10-bit internal recording, as well as being capable of 4K 60p/50p 4:2:2 10-bit HDMI output. In addition, the 4K 30p/25p 4:2:0 8-bit internal recording has no time limitation - At all. This is thanks to Panasonic’s optimised heat dispersion layout that utilises their technology to allow stable and continuous video recording. These video capabilities are complemented by the S5’s 14+ stops of dynamic range with V-Log / V-Gamut compatibility with VariCam colour science.
The Panasonic S5 also can record HDR video in 4K. This feature is designed to give lifelike reproduction of both light and dark areas of an image i.e. without being over or underexposed. The video that is recording is produced with an optimised gamma curve that’s compatible with ITU-R BT.2100. You can also use Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) in Photo Style which has a wider dynamic range that reproduces a more natural contrast between light and shadows. There’s also a 6K Photo mode for continues burst shooting which allows the capture of 30 fps. Once captured, a single frame the best timing from the 6K burst file is extracted and is saved as an 18-megapixel equivalent high-resolution photo. Finally, there’s a Slow & Quick mode. This mode was developed to capture beautiful slow motion and quick motion. These are both available in 4K: 1-60fps, 30x quick to 2.5x slow, or in FHD: 1-180fps, 60x quick to 7.5x slow.
Built For Low-Light
The S5 was designed for superior low-light performance. The camera was developed with a Dual Native ISO sensitivity, something that Panasonic first used in their cine camera VariCam line-up. Where single native ISO image sensors produce images that generally become noisier as the ISO sensitivity is increased, the use of a Dual Native ISO will minimise noise. This is achieved by the image sensor choosing an optimal circuit following the chosen sensitivity, before gain processing. By using this system Panasonic has been able to allow for a maximum ISO sensitivity of 51200 - The Dual Native ISOs are 640 and 4000. All of this allows you are the user to have complete creative control even when optimal light levels diminish, allowing you to carry less lighting gear and generally save time on set.
The S5 has been equipped with a powerful image stabilisation system. Panasonic gave extra attention to this area of the camera, developing a system that uses an algorithm accurately calculates shake information from not only the gyrosensor but the image sensor and accelerometer sensor, too. The configuration of this form of stabilisation allows for incredibly precise shake detection and compensation, allowing you to use 5-stops slower shutter speeds! When combined, the 5-axis in-body image stabilisation and the 2-axis optical image stabilisation of LUMIS S Seris lenses, you’ll see that the 5-axis Dual I.S.2 compensates for blur and in turn, allows you to use a 6.5-stop slower shutter speed. What does this all mean? What it means is that you’re able to efficiently shoot in conditions otherwise unavailable to you e.g. confident shake-free telephoto lens use and/or low-light conditions and even one-handed shooting. Of course, this works with both photo and video work and that includes when shooting in 4K!
Panasonic’s Lumix S5 has been kitted out with a redesigned autofocus system that shows improved precision and speed when used in both, photography and video recording. The key was combining contrast AF with DFD (Depth from defocus) technology which in turn, allows the S5 to focus on a subject in a lightning-fast approx.0.08 seconds. As mentioned previously, the camera is made for low-light performance and with this, the S5 features a -6EV*2 luminance detection and impression low-light autofocus which is made possible due to the high sensitivity and tuning of the sensor. In addition to this, when a LUMIS S series lens is attached, there’s a maximum communication speed between sensor and lens of 480fps. This incredible speed allows you to take advantage of the impressive AF performance.
The next addition to this autofocus system is advanced deep learning. This technology can more accurately detect specific subjects over other AF system. It’s designed to accurately detect people and fast-moving animals which includes cats, dogs and birds. Most interestingly, the person detection features the standard eye, face and body detect, but this system also with separately detect heads with real-time detection technology. This additional detection heightens the accuracy of the camera’s autofocus. More broadly, once detected, the camera will keep tracking the subject even if they move unpredictable e.g. turning around, moving their head or move further away from the camera itself. Panasonic utilised improvements to DFD technology which provide enhanced AFC which means the S5 will consistently capture crisp and sharp images even of small and fast-moving subjects.
Convenience and Flexibility
Whatever the task at hand, the compact and extremely mobile design of the LUMIX S5 can adapt to it. Heavy field use is supported by the tough magnesium alloy full die-cast built that is splash-and-dust resistant. Filming for prolonged times is also supported by the optimum layout designed to efficiently disperse heat. No need to worry about the camera running out of power during those long shoots either, as the battery can be recharged via the AC or USB. Furthermore, the camera features double SD memory card slots so that you also don’t run out of memory space. One of the slots complies with UHS-I; whereas, the other comply with the high-speed high-capacity UHS-II. The LUMIX S5 offers great connectivity with smartphones and tablets – with minimum power consumption – thanks to the Bluetooth 4.2 GHz connectivity. This connectivity can also be utilised to copy and wirelessly transmit the setting of the S5 to other S5 cameras when working with a multi-camera setup. Additionally, the Wi-Fi 5-GHz connection ensures smooth remote control of the camera as well as high-speed data transfer.
Thanks to the large Live View Finder (LVF). The LVF offers a high magnification ratio of approx. 0.74x in addition to a high-speed OLED display with 2,360K-dot high resolution. Minimum time lag (0.005 seconds) high-speed response can be achieved via the pairing of the OLED with the LVF. If you’re wearing glasses, the camera has an eyepoint of approx. 20mm which delivers high-visibility. Finally, the 3.0-inch free-angle LCD in 3:2 aspect, with 1,840K-dot high resolution, is great for touch control, and the REC Frame Indicator identifies whether the camera is recording or not so that you don’t miss the perfect shot.
The included shooting grip is a handy accessory that doubles as a small tripod. It supports easy and stable, one-handed shooting, which is great for vlogging. The accessory is equipped with a USB Micro-B wired connection, which doesn’t require an extra battery. Additionally, the grip features camera controls for Video Rec, Shutter as well as the Sleep Button. Thanks to this, you can enjoy a smooth and convenient shooting experience.

Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan. You will also receive reminder letters and text at the end of the deferral period to remind you when your first payment is due.
