Another day, another camera. The past few months have been absolutely mind-blowing when it comes to the frequency and quality of camera releases. Now, we have the Panasonic S5 to check out. Arguably the “entry-level” of Panasonic’s full-frame mirrorless lineup, the S5 is a step up from the true beginner’s feature set—and budget, the reason being that it boasts a full-frame sensor capable of 10-bit 4K 60p video in a body that is smaller than a GH5.
Perhaps you are looking for a new camera or looking to add to an existing kit. Maybe you want to move up to a larger sensor after shooting Micro Four Thirds your entire career. Whatever the case, you likely want to know all the options and how they compare. That’s where we want to help.
Below you’ll find some quick comparisons between the Panasonic S5 and its direct competitors. Keep in mind, these are not super in-depth comparisons based on lengthy real-world uses. Mostly, we will be talking about the specs and then throw in some limited hands-on experiences since we are usually fortunate enough to get some preview time with many cameras.
