    This camera is marvelous given the price and capability it provides. If you are a pro or semi pro and use manual focus most of the time, this is your dream come true under 2k. It got all the bells and whistles a pro shooter wants, 4k 10 bit 4:2:2, external 5.9k recording, Vlog, CineD, every dime of settings, beautiful fully articulated screen, pretty much everything the bigger brother S1H have. IBIS is ok (not as good as S1H), and you got vlog built in. BUT BUT BUT, contrast based defocus calculations for autofocus is pretty bad. If you depends heavily on Auto Focus and buying this Camera for v-logging, walking in and around, Selfie style video and will have different subjects in your video shots, DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA. This will disappoint you. I would rather use iPhone for that than this camera. This is near idea for me but since I wanted something that can be used for v-logging, I am disappointed. I am going to return this and looking at Sony A7C for that purpose.

    UPDATE: 02/25/2021: I was testing S5 in a studio setup with Key light, fill light and a RGB light background. Forget about all other auto focus modes, this camera still manages to loose focus when the setting was even on face tracking or Area+ tracking with human detection. However, it slightly improves with frame rate set to 60 on 4k. But that crops to APS-C mode. Don’t know if this autofocus is something Panasonic can fix via software update. They completely redesigned the contrast based auto focus for S5 and update S1 series with this new autofocus system. Panasonic, If you are listening, would you be able to tell your customers when these autofocus nightmares will be over? Panasonic, if this is fixable through firmware update, please do, because you are going to loose lot of customers in this segment of camera because this segment relies heavily on AUTO FOCUS.

    Update: 03/01/2021: I got Sony A7C to test it against this. I must say that Panasonic beats all Sony camera’s including higher end A7SIII if you can live with Panasonic S5 Autofocus system or Manual focus system. I found that Sony A7C, which in fact Sony’s highly acclaimed A7III in a compact body, has pretty bad banding problems due to Electronic First Curtain Shutter (EFCS) mechanism (it has no full mechanical shutters and that is why you cannot turn that option off). Especially if you shoot in LED lights environment with increase shutter speed > 1/60. Long Story short, Panasonic S5 is near perfect and even better as compared to all Sony camera’s upto A7SIII if you can live without perfect autofocus.

    Update: 03/09/2021: Since Panasonic is not giving us any update on its autofocus vision or future of autofocus in Pana cameras, I am going to return this camera. I can live with it if I am sure of its future or if price goes down so I can invest in good manual focus assistive setup and rig.

    The media could not be loaded.

     Doing multicam work, and find this camera to be the best in decades of shooting. 4K 10bit in 3840 or C4K/DCI on fairly standard SDXC cards, not exotic memory cards that A7SIII would need. Glad to finally move on from Sony ecosystem, especially in the IOS stabilization department. Happy with the image quality, and the lightweight 20-60mm lens.
    I’m a SOC (Society Of Camera Ops member), and enjoy using it for handheld work also. Good viewfinder, and ability to place the LCD screen implements well also. Connectivity and ports are ample. Pair it with a fast lens for very low light shooting. Typical night lighting, it images fine.
    Basically like I mentioned, it can record 4K 10bit onto pretty standard SDXC cards. Yes you can go down the higher bitrate road to wherever with the Sony and others, but this one can go there too, externally to a Ninja V, in 6K. Personally if I need 6K in 12 bit, I would rather buy regular useable recording memory, ie SDXC cards and SSD drives, instead of proprietary or expensive memory.
    The power options are excellent, the single battery last a long time, and it can take external power through USB-C.
    So I started this whole rig with building it with Sony A7SIII’s. I quickly changed that when looking at a side by side sequence shot with both cameras (A7SIII and S5). The test was at night. To me the S5 had much better motion interpretation, and again way way better stabilization. The S5 to me was a clearly better choice for my work.
    One last thing, the video shows 8 S5 cameras in full record sync, I love that multicam record beep sound.

    I love my Gh5. It’s made a lot of great videos and it’s made me a LOT of money over the years. My only gripe was the M4/3 format for several reasons. This camera does everything the Gh5 did so well and so much more. Although I have many cameras for various situations, if you can only afford one camera, this would be a great choice for video and photo.
    PROS:
    -Full Frame + APS-C modes
    -96MP still images
    -24MP video images give you great image resolving
    -easy to use menu just like the Gh5
    -in-camera time-lapse video creation is so great and builds on the Gh5
    -the sigma EF adapter is perfect for all of my EF lenses
    -auto focus is greatly improved over other Panasonic cameras
    -Log film mode built-in
    -resolves clean blacks even at ISO 20,000 (can be cleaned up in post if ISO exceeds 20,000
    -the lens it comes with is perfect for gimbal use although it’s aperture-situation isn’t ideal
    -6K recording coming soon
    -dual SD card slots
    -great battery life
    -uses XLR-1
    -great dials
    -heavy duty construction
    -no moire filter, so it resolves the every last MP of imaging power while still adequately reducing moire

    CONS:
    -auto focus still lags behind Sony (but I almost never use it, so not a concern for me)
    – as many will be upgrading from Gh5 its a bummer it uses a different battery
    -viewfinder should have been upgraded, it’s quality is now outdated
    -slow motion is in APS-C mode
    -10 bit mode is hard for editing software to process
    -no all intra

    This is my first ever camera I’ve ever purchased and so far this camera has been an amazing experience from the first week of owning it!
