Panasonic Lumix S5: What to expect?

While Panasonic’s official stance – “Panasonic is committed to meeting the passionate demands of all creators through its Lumix brand, and the new Lumix S5 is one of the embodiments of this commitment” – is entirely washy, there’s a lot more giveaway on the company’s official S5 landing page.

The “Moving Images Forward” banner on its official page is the first hint – i.e. that video (“moving images”) will be at the forefront of this camera’s capabilities – which Lumix ambassador and videographer, Todd White, goes on to support in his teaser YouTube video (see above).

Indeed, the S5 is a camera with a strong focus on video features, as we break down in our S5 specifications feature.
