Panasonic on Thursday launched its flagship S series hybrid full-frame mirrorless camera LUMIX S5 in the India market.
Priced at Rs 1,64,900 for body and Rs 1,89,900 for the kit, LUMIX S5 has a 24.2MP 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor that aims to deliver a wide dynamic range and high-sensitivity performance made possible by sufficient light condensation.
