Lumix S5 Vs Fujifilm XT4 - Weights and Dimensions

Weights and Dimensions are a big deciding factor when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs. In this section we are going to illustrate Panasonic S5 and Fujifilm X-T4 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions.

Panasonic S5 has external dimensions of 133 x 97 x 82 mm (5.24 x 3.82 x 3.23″) and weighs 714 g (1.57 lb) (including batteries).

Fujifilm X-T4 has external dimensions of 135 x 93 x 64 mm (5.31 x 3.66 x 3.31″) and weighs 607 g (1.34 lb / 21.41 oz) (including batteries).

Above you can see the front view size comparison of the Panasonic S5 and the Fujifilm X-T4. Fujifilm X-T4 is 4mm shorter and 18mm thinner than Panasonic S5 but it is also 2mm wider.

Here is the back view size comparison of Panasonic S5 and Fujifilm X-T4.

Now lets look at the top view comparison of Panasonic S5 and Fujifilm X-T4.

Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day. Fujifilm X-T4 is significantly lighter (107g ) than the Panasonic S5 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.

Also keep in mind that body weight is not the only deciding factor when comparing two interchangeable camera bodies, you have to also take into account the lenses that you will be using with these bodies. Since Panasonic S5 has a Full frame sensor and Fujifilm X-T4 has a smaller APS-C sensor, Fujifilm X-T4’s lenses for a similar focal length and aperture will generally be lighter and smaller than the Panasonic S5 lenses.

Lumix S5 Vs Fujifilm XT4: Sensor Comparison

Panasonic S5 has a 24.0MP Full frame (35.6 x 23.8 mm ) sized CMOS sensor and features Venus Engine processor. On the other hand, Fujifilm X-T4 has a 26.0MP APS-C (23.5 x 15.6 mm ) sized X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor .

Another similarity between these two cameras is that both Fujifilm X-T4 and Panasonic S5 sensors lack anti-alias (Low-Pass) filters. Removing anti-alias filter increases the sharpness and level of detail but at the same time, it increases the chance of moire occurring in certain scenes.

Above you can see the S5 and X-T4 sensor size comparison. Panasonic S5 has a 2.3x Larger sensor area than Fujifilm X-T4. Larger sensors give photographer more control on the depth of field and blurry background compared to smaller sensor when shot in same focal length and aperture.

Lumix S5 Vs Fujifilm XT4: Comparison of Available Lenses

The number of available lenses is a another big deciding factor, while choosing your interchangeable lens camera.

Another important factor is the availability of image stabilization. Both Panasonic S5 and Fujifilm X-T4 has Sensor based Image stabilization which means that all the lenses will be stabilized in these bodies. S5’s built-in Image stabilization system is effective to compensate vibration up to 6.5-stops according to CIPA standards.
