The S5 II is built around a full-frame, 24MP BSI CMOS sensor with on-sensor phase detection, a first for Panasonic. Panasonic describes the S5 II’s sensor as new, but it shares its fundamental specs with the S5, suggesting a closely shared lineage. Under the hood, the video-centric S5 IIX shares the same sensor, with additional video features like Raw video output, internal ProRes recording and external SSD support.

The S5 II also sports a new processor, created as part of a co-development project with Leica, which helps enable the S5 II’s ability to shoot at 30fps in e-shutter mode and improved subject recognition tracking system.
