First Teaser Picture of Panasonic’s Entry-Level Lumix S5 Seems on-line

Dependable camera leaker Nokishita has executed it once more – after revealing among the specs of the upcoming Panasonic Lumix S5 full-frame mirrorless camera, the Japanese supply has now revealed a teaser picture of the snapper on Twitter.

It is not the very best picture, given the low decision and dark background, nevertheless, it does give us an thought of what to anticipate.

From this one angle, the S5 appears to have an analogous design and color scheme to its older Lumix S1 and Lumix S1R siblings, however we came upon simply a few days in the past that it is considerably smaller and lighter than both of the sooner Panasonic full-framers – 33% smaller and 38% lighter to be exact.

If true, this important discount in dimension is nice information for Panasonic followers because the S1 and S1R had been fairly hefty for mirrorless cameras, being greater and heavier than rivals from Canon, Nikon and Sony.

Unsurprisingly, the teaser picture does not reveal any surprises, but when what Nokishita revealed last time is true, there will not be a lot distinction between the S5 and the S1.

We’re anticipating a 24MP sensor and 4K anamorphic assist just like the video-centric S1, together with in-body picture stabilization and Panasonic’s DFD (depth from defocus) contrast-based autofocus.

The one factor the S5 is rumored to be stealing from the pro-video Lumix S1H camera is Twin Native ISO when the sensitivity jumps from 100 and 640 to 640 and 4000 when recording video in Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) mode – an enormous benefit for low-light circumstances.

We do not have a particular date of launch for the S5, however the camera has already been registered with retailers, which means it may very well be arriving very quickly certainly. Good factor, as a result of we will not wait to get our hands on it.
