Merry Christmas 2023 Everybody, Happy Holidays!

A very happy Christmas and Happy Holidays to all, a break for me, and a quick dash out of the door. Am taking this opportunity of this poe-scheduled post for a quick refresher on one of my favorite CCD sensor cameras, the ultra-compact 16MP CCD Panasonic Lumix DMS-S5 that I have been using as a product shoot camera for my sideline hustle. The camera, as you see with these refreshed images, is equally competent as an external use camera, or as the occasional close-up agent.

The choice, though, was not automatic, as I went through a selection of digitals to replace the aging E-520 that I had been using since a few years back. The Panasonic DMC-S5, introduced in 2012, is a follow-up of the DMC-S series which includes the DMC-S1 (2011), DMC-S3 (2011), and DMC-S2. The camera was updated with a new and higher-resolution image sensor, an updated autofocus system, a modest improvement in battery life, a reduction in burst-shooting speed, and an updated software package.

The lens, as found on the DMC-S# was the same Lumix DC Vario 4x optical zoom with a aperture opening of F3.1~9.0 at the short end, and F6.5~f/20.0 at the other. The camera also features a true optical image stabilization system, a 2.7-inch 230,000 dot resolution LCD display, and a 23-point multi-area autofocus system which includes a single-point focusing mode, and face detection. ISO sensitivity is rated from 100 to 1,600, expandable to 6,400 in High Sensitivity mode. Shutter speeds are from 8 seconds to 1/1,600 seconds.
