Panasonic S1 Full Frame L-Mount Camera

Ultimate Hybrid. Fuel the Passion for Stills and Video.

24.2MP Full-frame CMOS Sensor

  • A new 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor that delivers incredibly realistic detail.
  • 4K video recording with no time limit, meeting professional needs.
  • Going beyond the boundaries of still and video,
  • this full-frame mirrorless camera inspires passionate image creation.

24.2MP Full-frame CMOS Sensor

The LUMIX S1 comes with a 24.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor. Providing ample light condensation per pixel, the LUMIX S1 boasts a wide dynamic range and reproduces sharp images with exceptional clarity. The new Venus Engine, which is exclusively tuned for the full-frame camera, and its Multipixel Luminance Generation and Intelligent Detail Processing, realize natural, high-resolution expression while suppressing colour moiré. Three-dimensional Colour Control also improves the colour reproduction of both bright areas and shadows. Thanks to the high-performance sensor and engine, true-to-life images from low to high sensitivity are realized. The LUMIX S1 is an ideal camera especially in low-light situations with minimal noise even at the maximum ISO51200.

Highly Detailed images

6-stop 5-axis Dual I.S. 2

The LUMIX S1 integrates the Body I.S. (image Stabilizer) with 5.5-stop compensation power. Combining the Body I.S. (5-axis) and the O.I.S. (Optical image Stabilizer, 2-axis) in the LUMIX S Series lenses, the 5-axis Dual I.S. 2 compensates for larger movements that were conventionally uncontrollable. It is highly beneficial for telephoto shots and adiverse situations, such as in low light or with one-handed shooting with a 6-stop slower shutter speed.

High Resolution Mode – 96MP (S1)

High Resolution mode enables ultra-high precision photo shooting. Eight consecutive images are automatically shot while shifting the sensor using the Body I.S. mechanism and synthesized into a RAW image. These eight images are synthesized into a siangle image by the new Venus Engine, which boasts high-speed signal processing. Precise details are faithfully reproduced to be saved as a beautiful, highly realistic image.This mode is ideal for taking natural landscapes or fine arts with delicate details. However, it can also be used in situations where moving subjects are included in the scene, by switching the sub mode.

HLG Photo Mode – New Style of Photo Expression

Panasonic's HLG Photo mode excels in the expression of lights, such as sparkling starlight or glaring sunlight. It provides a wider dynamic range to reproduce light and shadows with more natural contrast. The HLG Photos can be produced as HSP files with compressed high-brightness signals. Photographers can view those images on the latest Panasonic HLG-compliant 4KTV via HDMI cable connection or other HLG-compliant devices.

High-precision Shutter Unit

The new shutter unit offers a maximum shutter speed of 1/8000 second to capture fast moving subjects and to use a high-speed lens with a fully open aperture even outdoors. The external flash can be synchronized with the industry's fastest shutter speed*6 of a maximum 1/320 second.

Instantaneous Shooting

High-speed, High-precision AF of Approximately 0.08 sec

Panasonic has achieved a high-speed AF with its advanced control technology over major devices – lens, sensor and imaging engine. The lens and sensor communicate at a maximum 480 fps. Combining the Contrast AF with DFD technology, the LUMIX S1 realizes an ultra high-speed, high-precision AF of approximately 0.08 sec.

Low Light AF in -6EV Condition

As a camera that excels in low-light shooting, the LUMIX S1R/S1 boasts -6EV luminance detection performance with Low Light AF thanks to the higher sensitivity and optimized tuning of the sensor.

Adoption of AI Technology

The LUMIX S1 also incorporates advanced AI Technology that detects specific subjects – humans and fast-moving animals, including canidae, felidae and birds. The LUMIX S1 keeps tracking these subjects even when they turn their back to the camera.

Video Recording Performance

4K 60p/50p video recording is available in the LUMIX S1. Furthermore, the LUMIX S1 is capable of recording a full-pixel readout of signals and a crop factor of 1.0x in 30p/25p to save truly beautiful footage with no time limit for both Full-HD and 4K 30p/25p, as well as HDR (High Dynamic Range) video recording. The LUMIX S1 will comply with 4:2:2 10-bit 4K 30p/25p internal video recording, 4K 60p/50p HDMI output and V-Log with a software upgrade key (sold separately).

High Speed Video

The High Speed Video lets you record slow motion video in 4K (max. 60 fps / 50fps) and FHD (max. 180 fps / 150fps).

Reliable Operation

The Largest-in-class Real View Finder

The largest-in-class Real View Finder boasts the world's highest 5,760k-dot resolution. The 0.78x magnification ratio can be switched to 0.7x or 0.74x according to the shooting situation. Adoption of a high-speed, high-precision OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) for the LVF achieves smooth display at 60 fps / 120 fps (switchable) and high-speed response with minimum time lag of less than 0.005 sec as well as 10,000:1 high contrast for exceptional visibility.

Triaxial Tilt Rear Monitor and Status LCD

The 2,100K-dot high resolution monitor in 3:2 aspect ratio has adopted a triaxial tilt moving element to secure both durability and operational ease. It also has a touch control system.

The LUMIX S1 includes a largest-in-class Status LCD on the top, allowing users to check the settings at a glance.

Double Memory Card Slot

The Double Memory Card slot is compatible with SD Memory Cards (UHS-II) and XQD Memory Cards for high-speed, high-capacity, continuous data recording. It will also be compatible with CFexpress in the near future.

Rugged Design

To be tough enough to withistand heavy field use, the main structure is composed of a magnesium alloy full die-cast front/rear frame. Robust construction and a sealing for every joint, dial, and button make the LUMIX S1 not only dust resistant and splash resistant but also operates down to -10 degrees Centigrade. The shutter unit is also durable for approximately 400,000 cycles.
