Panasonic GH5 II with Panasonic Lumix DC-S1 Overview


Let's compare Lumix DC-S1 with GH5 II. Both cameras produced Panasonic. These models are included in the Pro Mirrorless cameras. Panasonic S1 was released in 2019, and Panasonic GH5 II in 2021. GH5 II is newer, which is a plus. Lumix DC-S1 2 years older.
The sensor resolution of Lumix DC-S1 is greater than that of GH5 II. However, the difference of 4 MP is not very significant. The more megapixels the camera has, the more detailed and clear the picture will be. The number of megapixels will also affect the maximum size of the photos, which then can be printed without loss of quality.
At the second camera (GH5 II), the minimum ISO value is lower, which gives more opportunities for shooting in daylight. A larger maximum ISO allows you to take good pictures in the dark. At Panasonic S1, the maximum ISO is greater by 25600. Both cameras have 5-axis Sensor-shift image stabilization. Both cameras feature a 3-inch tilting screen.
Both cameras have a electronic viewfinder. Viewfinder Lumix DC-S1 has a higher resolution of 5760k dots, GH5 II has a resolution of 3680k dots. Burst mode, also called continuous shooting mode, sports mode or continuous high speed mode, is a shooting mode in still cameras. Panasonic Lumix DC-S1 has 12.0 fps continuous shooting. Panasonic Lumix DC-S1 has 12.0 fps continuous shooting.
