Here is a first look video review of the Panasonic S1 and S1R full frame mirrorless cameras. Lensvid published their Photokina interview with Panasonic about the upcoming S1/S1R cameras.
Both Panasonic full frame camera feature 4K 60p/50p video recording, a new Venus image processing engine, Dual I.S. image stabilisation, a double slot for XQD memory cards and SD memory cards, and a triaxial tilt LCD screen.
You can watch the hands-on video below and some notes about the L-mount alliance. From the video they say “the cameras are physically larger than the GH5. On the other hand holding the S1R in the hand feels pretty nice“.
Panasonic S1 and S1R Coverage
- Both are FF cameras (the S1 with 24MP and the S1R with 47MP).
- Both are based on the L mount which is the same FF mount used by Leica SL cameras.
- Both will shoot 4K 60p video.
- small visual Both use 2 memory cards – SD and XQD.
- Both will have a top screen and a monitor which flips but also can rotate to the side (but is not fully articulated – sadly).
- The cameras are larger than the GH5 (but holding the S1R in the hand it feels pretty nice).
- There will be 3 initial lenses (at launch) from Panasonic – 24-105mm, 70-200mm (apertures unknown at this point) and a 50mm f/1.4 (Panasonic also promises to have 10 native lenses by 2020 plus quite a few lenses by Leica and possibly some by Sigma).
