Anamorphic Mode
4K CinemaScope Images

  • Image Stabilizer Anamorphic (Video)

    An image stabilizer ideal for an anamorphic lens can be used. Select from 1.30x, 1.33x, 1.5x, 1.8x or 2.0x depending on the lens magnification.
     

  • Anamorphic Desqueeze Display

    Images can be desqueezed in cinescope size. Magnification rate is also selectable from 1.30x, 1.33x, 1.5x, 1.8x or 2.0x.

REC Frame Indicator

A red border surrounds the frame as you record, helping you avoid vlogging without recording.

Frame Marker

The ideal aspect ratio varies by media. 
This feature helps you anticipate the right crop as you shoot. Can be used for both still photos and video.

Vertical Video

The vertical format is a standard choice for certain media. The LUMIX S5 can detect the vertical orientation and play back vertical videos accordingly.

Human Body Recognition / Animal Recognition
Using Deep Learning Technology

Deep Learning technology creates a human body / animal recognition AI to accurately recognize a person and animal.  A human body recognition / animal recognition AI acquired from a huge number of images is processed by the camera's Venus Engine.

Improved Recognition AF
Faster Recognition Speed + Additional Head Recognition

  • Quickly recognize the face and eyes of moving subjects
  • Twice the recognition speed of conventional products
  • Improved eye recognition accuracy when the face is tilted
  • Improved face and eye recognition accuracy even if the subject is small
  • Quickly recognize the moving human body
  • Improved eye recognition accuracy when face turns around
  • Improved human body recognition accuracy even if the subject is small

Video AF Improvement
Improved Head Recognition & Faster Recognition Speed

It keeps focusing on the subject's face, even when the person moves out of center
It keeps focusing on the person, even when their face turns around
It keeps focusing on the main subject, even If an unintentional subject enters the frame

Still Image AF Improvement
Improved DFD & Faster Recognition Speed

  • Follow small subjects (Prioritize small frame)
  • Don't lose focus to the background
  • Quick refocus after losing focus (Combined with DFD D-range extension and object recognition)
  • Improvement of  AFC visual quality (smooth focusing) on monitor in live-view by changing the control algorithm of AFC and using DFD technology

Durability to Shoot Under Tough Conditions
Designed with Dust and Splash Resistant in Mind

Sealing materials are used for the joints of the body, dials, and buttons. Even in areas where it's difficult to use sealing materials, the gaps between components are reduced, and the water-repellent coating is used in the fitting part.

Power

USB Power Charging

The large-capacity battery can be charged from a portable charger or PC via a USB adaptor.

USB Power Supply

This feature allows you to supply power to the camera while shooting. Convenient for video shooting with a fixed camera or during long shoots in the studio.

Power Save LVF Shooting

  • Auto OFF: The eye sensor detects that the eye has moved away, and the camera automatically enters sleep mode.
  • Auto ON: When the shutter button is half-pressed, advanced LUMIX technology instantly restores the shooting mode.
