TIPA WORLD AWARDS 2023
Panasonic LUMIX S5II
Pro content creators will welcome the capabilities of this hybrid camera that can deliver high-res stills and very sophisticated video functionality. It’s the first Lumix model to offer Phase Hybrid AF, which greatly benefits fast and precise autofocus performance. The S5II features a new Active I.S. (image stabilization) system that is especially designed to compensate for recordings made while walking, an exciting development for “on the ground” event coverage. TIPA members were impressed by the camera’s interfaces, numerous recording modes and active cooling system. They also pointed to the unit’s impressive still capabilities, including 9 fps (mechanical) and 30 fps (electronic) speed, wide dynamic range, and an impressive ISO recording capability, expandable to ISO 50-204,800.
