When Panasonic introduced the Panasonic S5 II (buy here) in January, a big deal was made about its autofocus system. And for a good reason. The S5 II marked Panasonic’s entry into the world of phase-detect autofocus, finally putting them on par with just about all of the mirrorless competition. Announced alongside the photography-focused S5 II was the S5 IIx (buy here), a more video-centric offering, but how exactly is it different?
At NAB 2023, we headed to the Panasonic booth to check out the S5 IIx in person and find out what makes it so special. In doing so, we discovered that it holds some unique features, including open-gate video, also introduced with the Panasonic GH6 (buy here), and what Panasonic says is the best video stabilisation in the mirrorless camera market.
