The Panasonic Lumix S5 has just been released in New Zealand, and I received mine a few days ago. Last night, with clear skies, I took it to the south coast of Wellington, New Zealand, to see what the new advances in High Resolution mode included in the S5 could bring.

This mode takes 8 images, shifting the sensor between each image a tiny amount, to create a final image with four times the pixels of a single image (96 megapixels compared with the sensor’s native 24 megapixels) and with lower noise than a single frame.
