Making full use of the 24.2MP sensor and enhanced processor, this camera records 6K video for up to 30 minutes, while unlimited 4K video capture is available as well. Optimized for video, the S5 IIX is also equipped with a new Active I.S. system, which supports walking shots to further enhance image stabilization while recording video.
Unique to the advanced S5 IIX, this model comes pre-loaded with sophisticated video features benefitting the professional user. These include HDMI RAW video data output, USB-SSD recording, ALL-Intra recording, and ProRes recording. Livestreaming functionality is standard as well, and the S5 IIX offers Wireless IP streaming, USB tethering to smartphones, and Wired IP streaming. Additionally, this camera is the first Lumix camera to feature a refined and stealthy all-black design.
Borrowing from Panasonic's broadcast line of video cameras, Dual Native ISO helps to achieve a balanced combination of low noise and high sensitivity to better suit working in a variety of lighting conditions. Two dedicated circuits are provided for each pixel: a Low ISO circuit provides base sensitivities of ISO 100 for normal use, ISO 640 when V-Log is applied, ISO 400 when HLG is applied, and ISO 200 when Cinelike D2/V2 is applied; a Low Noise circuit provides base sensitivities of ISO 640 for normal use, ISO 4000 when V-Log is applied, ISO 2500 when HLG is applied, and ISO 1250 when Cinelike D2/V2 is applied.

Panasonic Lumix S 20-60mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens
A unique zoom covering ultra-wide to short portrait-length fields of view, the Panasonic Lumix S 20-60mm f/3.5-5.6 is a sleek and versatile lens designed for full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras. The distinct range of focal lengths is also complemented by flexible focusing capabilities, which permit working with subjects as close as 5.9" with a 0.43x magnification for near-macro performance. In terms of optics, the lens incorporates a series of aspherical, high refractive index, and low dispersion elements to control a variety of aberrations and realize a high degree of clarity and sharpness. A fluorine coating has been applied to the front element to reduce smudging and make it easier to clean and then lens also features a weather-sealed design for working in harsh environmental conditions. Additionally, suiting both photo and video applications, a stepping motor is featured, which affords fast, precise, and near-silent autofocus performance.Wide-to-short telephoto zoom is designed for full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 30-90mm equivalent focal length range.Two aspherical elements and one ultra high refractive index (UHR) element, help to minimize distortions and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to maintain edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination.Three extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing in order to produce a high degree of clarity and color accuracy.Stepping AF motor delivers quick and quiet focusing performance that benefits both photo and video applications.Maximum magnification of 0.43x and a minimum focusing distance of 5.9" benefits working with close-up subjects.AF/MF switch permits quick changing between focusing modes.Splash, dust, and freezeproof design benefits working in inclement weather conditions down to 14°F.Fluorine coating has been applied to the front element to prevent dirt and oils from sticking to lens.Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
