The Panasonic Lumix GH5S is certainly one of the more specialized cameras out there, and it's not going to be for everyone. While it can shoot stills quite happily (although at a pretty limited resolution), this should be seen first and foremost as a video camera – if you want to do both you've got the Lumix GH5 to fill that brief.

While the absence of built-in image stabilization might be a disappointment for some, Panasonic's reasoning makes sense, and that issue aside the breadth of features is incredibly impressive.

If you want to shoot professional-quality footage without remortgaging your house to buy a pro video camera, you won't find a better video-focused camera right now.
