After using the Panasonic S5 camera for four months I can finally give my honest feedback along with example footage.
The example shots in my review are all done handheld. There are only a few completely still shots and those were shot on a tripod. No gimbal was used in any of my tests. Also all the footage is from my personal home videos since I did not get a chance to use this camera on any professional projects.
You can get the Panasonic Lumix S5 from various online retailers listed below. I do recommend that if you are going to buy this camera then you should get the kit with the 20-60 zoom lens. It’s a great all around lens for vlogging and photos.

If you were looking to get the Panasonic S1H but couldn’t afford it, then you should definitely look at the Panasonic S5. These two cameras are identical in image quality. The differences are only in body design and some limitations put on the S5 which won’t affect most users. Another big difference of course is the price tag, the S5 is a lot more affordable then not just the S1H but any other full frame mirrorless camera out there.
