Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 Sensor Review (DXOMark)

In September 2020, Panasonic officially announced the new Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 (Amazon/ B&H/ Adorama).  Kevin Carter posted a full sensor reiew at the DxOMark.com. It is Smaller than the Panasonic Lumix DC-S1, but similar.

With a 24.2 MP full-frame BSI CMOS sensor, Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 ranks very highly, achieving a total score of 94. Sensor output is at a level similar to the Panasonic Lumix DC-S1,  Nikon Z 6 II, and the Sony A7C and A7 III mirrorless models.

High ISO 2697 3333 3730 3434 3303 3394

 

Below is the conclusion,”Given the smaller and lighter body, not to mention the price difference, the Lumix DC-S5 looks like a highly tempting alternative to Panasonic Lumix DC-S1 for those on a tighter budget. However, while the Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 is a very capable performer, with practically the same output as the excellent Lumix DC-S1, it has slightly higher noise levels and fractionally worse low-light performance. That’s all relative, of course; the Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 is still a superb performer and remains an excellent choice for a wide range of genres…”
