Excellent camera, lens, and gimbal. Have only used h.264 codec even so the images are quite nice. Here is a link to some video of the bear mountain bridge i shot with no post color manipulation. https://youtu.be/_vV2VKpMios

Love the dinamic range

Works better than the X5, the nex sensor gives more dinamic range.

I'm glad that I bought the X5S.

I use Nikon cameras. Currently my main camera is the 36 MP Nikon D 810. I compare all other cameras to it. The Zenmuse X5S comes close to matching the 810 in overall quality. Since I have used the X5S on my Inspire 2 only I'm not sure that a direct comparison is fair. However, I am very happy so far with the X5S and feel that it is a big improvement in resolution over the very good X5.

Various Gripes

Tested the camera and I am not happy with the compression in H264. Lot's of noise in low light, even at f1.7. I would have shot in Prores or RAW but unfortunately that's an additional $1,300 for the license of the codecs. Odd that this is so expensive when the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera includes both codecs and only costs $995. I feel like I'm dealing with ransomware.

The four stars are based on I'm using it on H.625 and H.624, I'm almost positive the raw / apple prores would be outstanding image quality. I am not really happy with the raw photos, I know I cannot compare the photo image to my Canon 5DSR but at the end of the day that's what I want, great image photo quality and it's just not there yet.
