Looking for the best Panasonic Lumix S5 II X deals? Launched in early 2023, the Panasonic Lumix S5 II X is the most talked about mirrorless camera on the market right now, offering outstanding video, enhanced from its counterpart the S5 II.

As it's a relatively new camera and more video-centric when compared to the Pansonic Lumix S5 II, it's never going to be the cheapest, but we've got the best prices for you below.

The Panasonic S5 II X has been designed for pro content creators needing strong stills, sophisticated video options, and live streaming functionality. It's equipped with the same upgraded full-frame 24.2MP CMOS sensor as the S5 II and also features the updated image processing engine which incorporates a newly-developed Phase Hybrid AF system — a first for Lumix-series cameras. 

However, the biggest advantage the X has over the S5 II is its ability to record in Apple ProRes video format.

Now with 779 phase-detection points for significantly improved subject tracking, while also balancing high sensitivity and a wide dynamic range, the new sensor provides a useful ISO 100-51200 range, which can also be expanded to ISO 50-204,800 for working in low-lighting conditions.

It is also well suited to action and fast-moving subjects, as S5 II X can shoot full-res at up to 9 fps with the mechanical shutter, or at a more impressive 30 fps with the electronic shutter enabled.

But if high-res is what you are after the S5 II utilizes sensor-shift stabilization technology through its High-Resolution mode to capture and compile eight separate exposures to create a single 96MP RAW or JPEG file – perfect for still life or product photography.
