At long last, Panasonic has made their stellar entry into the 35mm full-frame mirrorless camera scene with the LUMIX S1. It features a 24-megapixel full frame CMOS sensor and the ability to record 4K video at 60p, a world’s first for full-frame mirrorless cameras. Dual I.S support makes use of sensor and lens-based stabilisation for steady, sharp handheld photos and video. The camera includes dual memory slots, one for UHS-II cards and another for XQD cards, as well as a robust construction and ergonomic design that makes it an incredibly versatile professional camera.

24.2 Megapixel Full Frame Sensor

Boasting a 24.2-megapixel full frame CMOS sensor, the Panasonic LUMIX S1 is built to impress with a focus on image quality and clarity. The sensor has an impressive dynamic range with a maximum ISO range of 51200 that is extendable to 204800 for extreme low-light shooting. It also features an AR coating to minimise ghosting and flare in backlit lighting conditions.

High Resolution 96-Megapixel Mode

Innovative technology inside the LUMIX S1 shifts the sensor and capture 8 images at different positions that are then combined in-camera to produce an ultra-high resolution 96-megapixel image. Perfect suited for landscapes and subjects with ultra-fine detail, when you need to capture subjects with absolute clarity.

Wide Dynamic Range with HLG Photo

A newly created HLG Photo mode enables the capture of images with an ultra-wide dynamic range as an HSP file that can be viewed on HLG compatible displays and televisions. The images created have a natural contrast, vibrant colours and display bright highlights with dark shadows and a stunning resolution.

Dual I.S. Image Stabilisation Support

Not only does the S1 offer 5-axis in-body image stabilisation, seen as an industry standard, but it also supports their Dual I.S. 2 system which, when combined with a stabilised lens like the 24-105 f/4 delivers a whopping 6.5 stops of stabilisation. This allows you to capture exceptionally sharp photos and steady video, even when shooting handheld.

4K 60fps Video Recording

As a ‘world’s-first’ for the full-frame mirrorless camera market, Panasonic has announced the LUMIX S1 will support 4K video recording at 60fps for amazingly smooth footage with incredible, life-like detail. But that’s not all, the camera also records Full HD up to 180fps for super slow-motion footage.

6K/4K Photo Burst Modes

Panasonic continue to offer incredible still capture speeds by utilising the ultra-high resolution of their 4K and 6K video modes. 4K photo mode can produce 60 stills a second with a resolution of 8-megapixel and the 6K photo mode delivers 18-megapixel stills at a rate of 30 a second. Like previous models 6K and 4K photo are available with a standard burst, Start/stop, and Pre-burst mode.

Status Scope Display

The impressive stabilisation ability of the camera is possible thanks to advanced processing of information from the integrated gyrosensor, image sensor and accelerometer for accurate movement detection. This information can also be displayed with the new status scope function that shows a visual representation of micro-movements, useful to gauge how steady your shot is.

High-Precision Mechanical Shutter

With a maximum shutter speed of 1/8000, the new mechanical shutter of the LUMIX S1 allows you to shoot wide open in bright conditions and supports a fast sync speed of 1/320 when shooting with external flash.

High Speed DFD Autofocus

Using Panasonic’s DFD autofocus system, the performance of the S1 has been enhanced, enabling the camera able to accurately acquire focus in approximately 0.08 seconds. The autofocus system operates in low light conditions as dark as -6EV and the sensor can communicate with an attached lens as fast as 480 fps, for precise results.

Advanced AI Autofocus Technology

The new autofocus system delivers impressive face and pupil detection for consistently sharp in-focus results and reliable tracking to significantly improve your hit rate. By using advanced artificial intelligence technology, the system detects humans or fast-moving animals and tracks movement, even if the subject turns away.

Dual Memory Card Slots

Appealing to professional users, the LUMIX S series camera has dual memory card slots. An XQD slot, for high resolution, high-frame rate images and a UHS-II SD card slot, great for JPEG backups and casual shooting.

Tri-Axial Tilting LCD Screen

On the rear of the camera is a large tri-axial LCD screen with a super sharp 2,100K-dot resolution. It features the standard up or down tilting along with a third axis on one side that will allow you to tilt the screen outward, ideal for vertical low-angle shooting. The screen is touch sensitive, for quick repositioning of autofocus points and to review images with ease.

Status LCD Screen

Designed so you can review camera settings with a quick glance, the S1 features a large LCD status screen on the top of the body. This allows you to comfortably modify settings while shooting from the hip.

5,760k Dot OLED EVF with 0.78x Magnification

With a market leading 5,760k dot resolution, the OLED electronic viewfinder on the LUMIX S1 has a 0.78x magnification ratio that can be set to 0.7x or 0.74x, to make it easier to view for glasses wearers. The EVF can be switched between 60 and 120fps, making it easier to track fast subjects and delivers a minimum lag of less than 0.005 seconds.

Robust Splash and Dust Resistant Body

The S-Series camera features a rugged pro-level body constructed from magnesium alloy complete with sealing on every joint, dial and button to keep the elements at bay. This provides the peace of mind and reliability existing Panasonic users already appreciate.

L-Mount Lens Compatibility

The L-Mount featured on the Panasonic LUMIX S1 opens up a world of possibility in terms of lens choices. Panasonic, Leica, and Sigma have allied to create a new mount standard with more mix-and-match lens options than ever, demonstrating a real understanding of the creative flexibility so highly demanded by professionals and enthusiasts alike. The L mount will support Panasonic, Leica, and Sigma’s existing APS-C and full frame glass.
