The Panasonic Lumix S5 IIX’s video smarts put the Sony A7 IV in the shade

In my recent Panasonic Lumix S5 II review – the full-frame camera scored a maximum 5-star rating – I praised in particular its video features, which are unmatched at the sub-$2,000 / £2,000 price point. We already knew another version of the camera was in the pipeline, and the S5 IIX – which boasts even more advanced video features – has now been officially announced.  

I described the S5 II as a video-first, photo-second camera, and its main rival, the Sony A7 IV a photo-first, video-second camera (which costs an extra 20%). But despite the S5 II having the all-round edge for video, the Sony A7 IV has some advantages over it when it comes to video quality.
