Ultimate Hybrid: Professional Video, Stunning Stills

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

* Maximum recording time of 29m 59s in 4K 60p/50p.

24.2MP CMOS Sensor with 96MP High Resolution Mode

This brand new system takes LUMIX deeper into the world of professional photographers and videographers. The Lumix S1 comes with a 24.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor (35.6mm x 23.8mm) that provides a wide dynamic range and excellent performance, and supports low-light shooting at up to ISO 51200 (extendable to ISO 204800). High Resolution Mode allows photographers in the landscape, architecture, product and still life photography fields to capture incredible 96MP files for highly detailed large format prints.

5-axis Dual I.S. 2

Panasonic’s Dual I.S. 2 technology combines 5-axis internal stabilisation with the optical image stabilisation in selected lenses*, and can support up to 6 stops** of image stabilisation - enabling shooting still subjects handheld at much slower shutter speeds and ISO values. This system calculates information from the gyrosensor, image sensor and accelerometer sensor for highly accurate shake detection and compensation, in particular for low-frequency movement.

* 5-Axis Dual I.S.2 can be used with the lens S-R24105 and S-R70200 as of February 1, 2019.<br>
** Based on the CIPA standard [Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=200mm, when S-R70200 is used.

4K 60p/50p Video Recording

LUMIX S Series full-frame cameras offer an unequalled videography feature set, recording smooth 4K 60p/50p*, and High Speed Video lets you record slow motion video in 4K (maximum 60 fps/50 fps) and FHD (maximum 180 fps /150 fps). The S1 has a full sensor readout, capturing 4K 30p with no recording time limit**. The camera is also compatible with an XLR microphone adaptor to support professional audio quality.

* PAL area only.
** Excludes high-speed video recording.

4:2:2 10-bit Internal Recording

4:2:2 10-bit video is capable of expressing over 1 billion colours, making it a highly valuable feature in post-production. The S1 - via a software upgrade key available later in 2019 (to be sold separately) - will support 4:2:2 10-bit 4K 30p/25p internal video recording and 4K 60p/50p via HDMI output as well as the V-Log picture profile featured on Panasonic’s acclaimed VariCam products.

Advanced AF and AI Technology

Super-fast lens and sensor communication of 480 fps and Panasonic’s DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology allow the LUMIX S1 to achieve an ultra-high-speed, high-precision AF of approximately 0.08 sec*. The S1 also boasts high-speed burst shooting at 9 fps (AFS) or 6 fps (AFC), and excels in low-light shooting, with -6EV* luminance detection performance in Low Light AF, thanks to the higher sensitivity and optimised tuning of the sensor. Advanced AI Technology detects specific subjects, like humans or fast-moving animals, and keeps tracking these subjects even when they are not facing the camera.

* 11EV, at wide-end with S-R24105 (CIPA) in LVF120 fps setting.
* At ISO100, F1.4, AFS.

5,760k-dot Live View Finder

The class-leading Live View Finder offers the world’s highest resolution* with a 5.7 million dot OLED display that delivers a minimum time lag of less than 0.005 sec and an exceptional 10,000:1 high contrast ratio. The 2.1 million dot monitor has a triaxial tilt design for further shooting versatility, offering superb flexibility in a variety of situations, including high and low angle shooting and portraits.

* As a Digital Single Lens Mirrorless Camera, as of February 1, 2019.

Dual Memory Card Slots

The LUMIX S1 offers two high-speed memory card slots, one supporting UHS-II SD cards and the other supporting XQD* (upgradeable to CFexpress in the near future), providing multi-format options, extended recording and flexible data backup in the field.

Allocation Record mode allows you to specify the card slot to be used for recording for different image formats. Relay Record mode relays recording to the other card slot after the first card runs out of free space during recording. Backup Recording mode records the same data to the two cards.

Tough, Durable Design

The Lumix S1 is designed to be tough enough to withstand heavy field use, the camera structure is composed of a magnesium alloy full die-cast front/rear frame. Robust construction and a seal for every joint, dial, and button make the LUMIX S1 not only splash resistant and dust resistant but also freeze resistant down to -10 degrees Celsius. The durable shutter unit will withstand around 400,000 releases.
