The Panasonic Lumix S5 IIX smart video puts the Sony A7 IV in the shadows

In my last Panasonic Lumix S5 II review – the full frame camera scored the maximum 5 star rating – I particularly praised its video features, which are second to none in the sub $2000 / £2000 price range. We already knew that the next version of the camera is in the works, and the S5 IIX – which boasts even more advanced video capabilities – has just been officially announced.

I described the S5 II as the first video camera, the second camera and its main rival, Sony A7IV photo first, then video (which costs an extra 20%). But while the S5 II has an all-around advantage when it comes to video, the Sony A7 IV has some advantages over it when it comes to video quality.
