Panasonic launch full-frame S1 and S1R mirrorless cameras

With a choice of lenses available from Panasonic, Leica and Sigma (more on this below), the S Series is not only looking to the future, but also delivers two very exciting new cameras straight from Launch.

The S1R has an incredible 47MP sensor, pitching it at professional photographers – whether it is portrait, commercial or landscape, there will be no complaints over resolution or image quality. The S1 is placed differently in the market, yet still offers an impressive 24MP sensor.

Panasonic Lumix S1 Hands On Video Review

Gareth goes hands on with the Panasonic Lumix S1, we were lucky enough to be able to take it out for the week to see if it lived up to the hype and we weren't disappointed. The Panasonic Lumix S1 is a fantastic hybrid camera boasting incredible video specs and impressive photographic capabilities.

L Mount Lenses

Using the L Mount, the S Series will give Panasonic users the choice between Panasonic’s new Lumix S Series lenses (10 of which are expected to be available within a year of launch), as well as both Leica and Sigma – all of whom will be creating L Mount lenses.

The L Mount itself has four main design elements that will help deliver optimum optical quality:

  1. Rugged & Splash Resistant design withstands use under harsh conditions
  2. A secure mount with four flange elements – this allows stable and tight coupling between the lens and the camera body
  3. A flange distance of just 20mm – reduced length allows for optimal lens design, and also means that mount adaptors can be created for other mount systems
  4. Excels at video - Designed to suppress focus breathing, the S-Lens lineup will impress videographers
