This is one of the best camera deals (opens in new tab) we have seen this month, and is our pick of the.  Amazon Spring Sale (opens in new tab) this week.

 The Panasonic S5 (opens in new tab) is the latest in the full-frame Lumix line-up – and as you will see if you read our review (opens in new tab), we think it is kind of special. But in the Amazon deal you can get the body for a tasty discount of £250, PLUS they will throw in a vlogging grip, which works as a remote control and tripod - and is perfect for content creators.

Alternatively, if you don't want the grip you can get the camera with the 20-60mm zoom, and a spare battery – and save you a grand total of £350.

Panasonic launched its first full-frame mirrorless cameras back in 2018, but the latest in the range is designed to be much smaller, and to appeal to those that regularly have to shoot stills and video. It has the same 24-megapixel sensor as the original Lumix S1 (opens in new tab), and features in-body stabilization that offers up to 6.5 stops of shake compensation. Ingeniously this shift stabilization can be used to create 96 megapixel images if needed by combining eight different frames in camera.
