Panasonic S1 10-bit and V-Log Paid Firmware Coming in July

By on

Panasonic have announced that the paid firmware for the Panasonic S1 full-frame mirrorless camera will be released in July 2019. This update will enable 4:2:2 10bit 4K 30p recording, 4:2:2 10bit 4K 60p HDMI output, and V-Log recording on the Panasonic S1.

Prior to this upgrade, V-Log was only available on professional Panasonic video cameras, such as the EVA1. V-Log provides an extra 2-stops of dynamic range compared to V-Log L found on the GH5/GH5S, which should result in improved highlight retention in high dynamic range scenes.

Pricing has yet to be determined, though Panasonic says that it will be announced sooner than July.
