While that means it might not be the sleekest and most attractive camera on the market, it is extremely functional. The micro HDMI like the R5 is a big no and limits use of external recorders and monitors. While photographers may bemoan the slight lack of telephoto reach available, videographers and especially vloggers will be delighted by the 20mm wide-angle focal length, which makes it possible to hand-hold the camera at arm's length and still get yourself comfortably in the frame without having to resort to having to using a selfie stick or some other form of extension or a different lens entirely.

You want a well-rounded hybrid camera for video and stills Panasonic has long been known for its video credentials, and the S5 is a fantastic hybrid camera for those who want to shoot an even mix of still and moving images. Panasonic are doing good business with Tesla too so I'm convinced they will stick to it despite current market conditions I just received my S5 couple of days ago, still playing with it but some of my reasons to pre-order it are 1 I already am enjoying my Lumix S1, so this one will be only smaller and better on few grounds 2 the kit lens is not leica but still great, have you seen the kit lens on A7C? This is a small and neat lens, which makes it an ideal partner for the S5. I bought my new X-H1 from an authorized Fuji dealer on August 21, 2019, and registered it with Fuji.

Memory Card Slots Completing the S5's top-plate is a one-touch movie record button, finished in the same dark red as the ring which sits underneath the drive mode dial. Indeed, used in this way it is as reliable as the EOS R I once owned and internet folklore is that Canon DPAF is peerless.
