The Panasonic Lumix S1 is a full-frame mirrorless camera. The 24.2MP CMOS is at the heart of the Lumix S1. This camera is equipped with outstanding image stabilisation and is powered by a brand new Venus Engine. The Lumix S1 performs up to the highest standards in photography as well as offering advanced video recording with well-retained highlight and shadow details.
High Sensitivity and High Resolution
The Lumix S1 uses a 24.2-million-pixel-CMOS sensor (35.6 x 23.8 mm) which provides a wide dynamic range and excellent signal to noise ratios at high ISO settings. The efficient pixel design combined with the high-powered Venus Engine processor, allows standard ISO settings to reach ISO 51,200.
When you need extra resolution, a High Resolution Mode can be used to create images with a staggering 96 million pixels. This mode combines information recorded in eight exposures that are taken as the Body image stabilisation. system makes small off-set adjustments to the sensor position. This results in a 12,000 x 8,000 pixel RAW-file bursting with information.
Dual Image Stabilisation for Incredible Shake Compensation
The 5-axis body image stabilisation compensates for the effects of camera shake to make shutter speed to 5.5-stop slower than safe to use. To help photographers remove source of camera shaking, an image stabilisation Status Scope has been added that displays a graphic interpretation of vibration.
High-Speed Precision Focusing
The Lumix S1 combines contrast detection and Panasonic's unique DFD technology with ultra-fast processing creates a focusing system that provides both speed and precision. In order to achieve extremely fast and accurate focusing, the Venus Engine, CMOS sensor and new Lumix S lenses they communicate at up to 480fps which allows the system to react in 0.08 seconds. This autofocus works with as little light as remarkable -6 EV.
Focus acquisition and tracking is enhanced with advanced Artificial Intelligence Technology that detects humans, cats, dogs and birds. By identifying the subject, the camera system can anticipate movement patterns and allows the autofocus to help keep tracking the subject even when its back is turned. Face, eye and pupil detection also ensure that portraits are focused correctly.
In fast moving situations, the Lumix S1 is capable of shooting at a rate of 9fps in AFS or 6fps with continuous focusing. The 6K Photo mode allow burst of 18-million-pixel JPEF images at 30fps, while 4K Photo offers sequences at 30 to 60fps with 8-megapixel resolution.
High Resolution Viewfinder and High Quality Displays
The world's highest resolution electronic viewfinder provides photographers with unrivalled clarity via a 5.76-million-dot OLED display. The Real View Finder offers users refresh rates of up to 120fps. As well as a virtually non-existent lag of just 0.005 seconds for smooths and realistic tracking of motion while panning with moving subjects/
The camera's 3.2 inch touchscreen features 2.1-million-dot resolution and it is mounted on a triaxle tilt rear monitor that allows it to flip out for low or high angled viewing in both portrait and landscape orientation. Night mode, Live View Boost and illuminated buttons help those working in dark conditions and the camera's top plate offers largest-in-class back-lit status LCD to keep you informed of important shooting settings at a glance.
Professional Video Features
The Panasonic Lumix S1 offers filmmakers exceptional video quality and a wide range of tools to take full creative control of their footage. 4K video is offered at 60/50p, while full pixel readout is achieved at 30p for exceptionally clean and detailed images. With the full width of the sensor being used, the focal length of lenses is retained and the creative possibilities of extreme shallow depth of field are available.
Line-input is supported by a 3.5mm microphone socket while audio can be monitored using a 3.5mm headphone port. Advanced audio quality can be achieved using the DMW-XLR1 microphone adapter in the hot shoe with professional microphones and XLR input sources.
Designed to Meet Expectations
The shutter unit is designed to endure 400,00 actuations. It allows mechanically driven exposure times as short as 1/8000 sec to ensure the capture of fast moving subjects even when using open aperture settings of fast lenses in the bright sunshine.
The control buttons on the camera and dials are located based on an ergonomic study to enable the user to concentrate on shooting. The adoption of an 8-directional joystick and refined User Interface also supports quick operation during shooting.
Photographers can also protect their work by having the camera automatically add their personal details and copyright information to Exif data as pictures are recorded. Double memory card slots are provided for SD (UHS-II) and XQD media and compatibility with CFexpress is due soon.
Panasonic Lumix S 24-105mm f/4 Macro OIS Lens
The Lumix S 24-105mm f/4 Macro OIS is a versatile standard zoom lens that covers wide-angle to medium focal lengths. It assures users excellent sharpness across the entire zoom range and is useful for many applications from landscapes to portrait. It is also perfect for close-up and macro work, offering 0.5x magnification and a closest focus distance of merely 0.3m.
Combined with the OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation with body image stabilisations of the S1 and S1R cameras allowing for 5-axis dual IS technology to offer up to 6 stops of compensation.
