Panasonic Lumix S5 IIX outperforms Sony A7 IV in video capabilities
Panasonic has announced the Lumix S5 IIX, a supercharged version of the Lumix S5 II, which boasts even more advanced video features. The S5 II received a maximum 5-star rating in a recent review, with video features that are unmatched at the sub-$2,000 price point. However, the Sony A7 IV has some advantages over it when it comes to video quality. The S5 IIX surpasses the Sony A7 IV on all video quality fronts and ranks among the best mirrorless cameras for video. It can shoot internal ProRes raw to SSD, external BRAW to a monitor, and offers ALL-I compression with the same bitrate to SD card. The camera is only a moderate extra outlay over the S5 II, and cheaper than the A7 IV.
