The Panasonic Lumix S1R pushes the boundaries of photo and video innovation. Designed with the consummate imaging professional in mind, the S1R is a 47-megapixel full frame mirrorless camera that is the flagship of the Panasonic Lumix S series.
47.3 Megapixel Full Frame Sensor
The heart of the S1R features a newly-developed 47.3 Megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor that delivers high dynamic range and impressive low-light performance. With native ISO performance up to ISO 25600 and extendable to ISO 51200, you are equipped to handle shooting in a wide variety of lighting conditions. An AR coating on the sensor further bolsters image detail and sharpness by working to minimise ghosting and flare, even in tough backlit conditions.
4K/60 & FHD/180 FPS Video Recording
Panasonic’s Lumix range of cameras have always been renowned for their multimedia capabilities, and the Lumix S1R doesn’t disappoint. Offering 4K/60 video recording and Full HD video at 180fps ensures you’re equipped with the flexibility to create high detail or ultra-smooth slow-motion videos in the one camera.
Full Featured Multimedia Expandability
A full HDMI-out port plus a microphone input and 3.5mm headphone jack ensures versatility to expand the cameras capabilities for professional video production. The S1R is also compatible with Panasonic’s DMW-XLR-1E Microphone adapter (sold separately), enabling input from professional XLR microphones to be used directly.
Dual I.S. 2 Image Stabilisation
Pushing the technological envelope, the S1R is the first full-frame camera to offer Dual Image stabilisation technology. Delivering shaper, detail-rich images and better exposure versatility and control. The S1R utilises a gyro sensor and accelerometer for highly effective shake reduction. Dual IS 2 combines the 5-axis sensor stabilisation system with optical lens stabilisation (where compatible) to offer an impressive 6-stops of compensation and truly uncompromising clarity when shooting handheld.
187 Megapixel High-Resolution Mode
The sensor shift image stabilisation system has been re-purposed to make massive 187 Megapixel images possible. Its High-Resolution mode is ideal for studio and landscape photographers who need ultra-high resolution images for billboard and print work, or better creative versatility when editing in post-production. The mode works by capturing and combining 8 consecutive images in-camera the high-res mode produces a 16,736 x 11,168 pixel RAW and/or JPEG file that will really do justice to the nuanced detail and colour tone variations of any scene.
Hybrid Log Gamma Photo Mode
Compatible with the latest emerging display technologies, the S1R also features built-in support for the Hybrid Log Gamma format. Offering a wider dynamic range for a more natural contrast profile, the HLG mode outputs HSP files natively to ensure compatibility with HDR displays. Simply connect the camera via a HDMI cable to a HLG-compliant TV and view breathtaking images in up to 8K resolution where supported.
Fast AF Performance with Eye Tracking
Sharpness is complemented by a high speed, high precision autofocusing system that combines contrast detect AF with Panasonic’s Depth-From-Defocus technology for lightning fast, accurate lock onto your subject. The lens and sensor communicate at a maximum 480fps allowing focus lock for even the most fleeting subjects. Deep learning artificial intelligence helps with subject tracking and is capable of recognising specific subjects such as humans and fast-moving animals, tracking them with better accuracy and consistency. Face and Eye detection is also incorporated into the focusing system, ensuring your portraits are captured in crisp focus, even when shooting with wide-open apertures.
5760k-dot Ultra-High Resolution EVF
Equipped with a class-leading ultra-high 5760k-dot resolution viewfinder, the Lumix S1-R offers shooters the confidence that what they see in the EVF is an accurate representation of their final image. With a smooth, ultra-fast refresh rate of 120fps, the viewfinder also offers a lag time of less than 0.005 sec and an adjustable magnification ratio of 0.78x, 0.74x or 0.70x to compensate for glasses wearers who might struggle to see the entire full-frame view.
2100k-dot Triaxial Tilt Touchscreen Monitor
The rear of the camera houses a large 3.2-inch TFT LCD screen that makes it easy and intuitive to compose images and video or navigate the menu and change shooting settings. Featuring a 2100k-dot resolution, its unique triaxial design allows the screen to be flipped up for low-angle shooting, flipped down for high angle shots or flipped inwards for low or high angle shooting in the portrait orientation.
L-Mount Lens Mount
The new L-Mount lens mount has been developed in conjunction with Leica and Sigma to ensure a broad range of high-quality lenses are available, catering to all styles of photography. Its mount features a large 51.6mm inner diameter that allows for lenses to be extremely fast, yet compact and user friendly.
XQD & SD Card Slots
Individual slots for an XQD card and a SD card ensure professionals are equipped with the flexibility to choose the medium that suits them and can configure the camera to use the slots in a variety of ways like having an option of a real-time backup from one card to another for immediate file redundancy or saving video files to the XQD slot and stills to the SD slot.
Wi-Fi & Bluetooth Connectivity
Workflow can be streamlined thanks to Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy and secure 5GHz Wireless AC connectivity options. Connect the camera to a compatible iOS or Android smart device and use the Lumix Sync app to quickly send photos to your phone or tablet wirelessly. The app also enables remote control of the camera, opening a world of creative potential.
Built for The Professional
Designed with a broad range of shooting professionals in mind, the robust body features 100% sealing on all seams dials and buttons. This construction quality provides pro shooters with the confidence to keep shooting in the rain, dust, dirt, sand and other physically demanding environments.
Further bolstering its appeal to uncompromising professionals, the S1R’s ergonomics take a step away from the smaller, lighter ethos of most mirrorless cameras to date. Instead its magnesium alloy body is designed to be comfortable in the hand. A large firm grip ensures confidence inspiring handling for day-long photo shoots. Additionally, a vertical grip is available separately to extend battery life and replicate the handling and button placement for portrait orientation shooters.
