Product information

Building on the success of the award winning Lumix G3, the Panasonic Lumix G5K pushes portability and performance even further. Ideal for the photographer wanting more creative potential or a companion on the road when a DSLR is just too cumbersome - the G5K is an exceptional blend of imaging power and versatility, that’s still a breeze to use. Rugged, lightweight construction will keep it in one piece no matter where your travels take you, while interchangeable lenses mean you’re always equipped to take the shots you want.

Key benefits:

  • Pansonic’s powerful 16.05 megapixel live MOS sensor uses pixel mix technology to suppress noise for crisp, beautiful shots. Coupled with the cutting-edge Venus engine and advanced signal processing, you’ll enjoy sharper results time and again.
  • Light speed autofocus enables quick focusing on fast moving action. Great for capturing sporting action, you’re guaranteed more accuracy - even at lower f settings. When one picture isn’t enough, six-frame-per-second burst shooting will tell the whole story.
  • The included 14-42mm lens is a flexible starting point for any photographer. Capable of a handy 3x optical zoom to get you closer to the action, it can still pull off detailed macro shot, detailed landscapes and intimate portraits.
  • Record 1080p Full HD in the popular AVCHD and MP4 formats at the touch of a button. The stereo microphone is equipped with Dolby Digital Stereo Creator to record more lifelike audio. Home videos are guaranteed to be rock-solid with full time autofocus and one touch tracking autofocus.
  • Intelligent design touches. Eye sensor autofocus begins focusing when you put your eye to the electronic viewfinder for razor-sharp spur of the moment shots. The function lever and rear dial add a new dimension to setups and make adjustment simple.
  • The large, bright 3-inch touchscreen allows for quick reviews of snaps and footage, easy setups and area sensitive autofocus. It even flips out and articulates so you can get into just the right position for those difficult pictures.
  • Pansonic’s creative control is back and better than ever. Now with 14 filter options, including the ability the adjust them to suit your style, you can add your own unique slant to any picture.
  • Scene Guide will get beginners right up to speed on the possibilities of an interchangeable lens camera with 23 professional sample pictures to take your cue from.

Lenses & Cases
One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless. Click here to browse our selection.
