Save up to $700 on a Panasonic Lumix S5 Camera
There’s no better time than the present to learn a new hobby, especially when the necessary equipment is on sale.
Aspiring shutterbugs can get a Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 camera with or without a lens for up to $700 off retail price.
Enthusiasts might want to swoop in for the full kit, which comes with a base Lumix S 20-60mm F3.5-5.6 lens for $1,797.99. If you’re looking for something a little more powerful, Amazon has also reduced the 16-35mm F4 ($3,095.98), 50mm F1.4 ($3,895.98), 70-200mm F4 ($3,295.98) and 85mm F1.8 ($2,295.98) lentils.
Earning a PCMag Editors’ Choice seal of approval, the Lumix S5 basic black weighs about 1.6 pounds (sand lens). It measures 3.8 x 5.2 x 3.2 inches (HWD), with a deep handle and a dust and spill resistant magnesium frame.
The S5 is powered by a DMW-BLK22 rechargeable battery, rated for 440 shots with the LCD and 470 with the EVF. Activate power-saving features to extend life to up to 1,500 photos per charge via USB-C port. Other physical connectors include micro HDMI (for an external recorder or monitor), 3.5mm headphone and microphone jacks, and two memory card slots. There is no built-in flash.
DSLRs aren’t just for taking snapshots anymore, however: the S5 internally records regular, slow-motion and fast-motion video in 10-bit quality and can reach 60 fps in 4K. Its 24MP sensor delivers sharp images usable in low and bright light conditions, while offering Raw editing options.
