At last month's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas we sat down with Yosuke Yamane, Director of Panasonic's Imaging Business Division, to discuss market reaction to the S1-series, full-frame strategy and the state of the L-mount alliance.

The S1H is a hugely impressive video camera, but so is the S1, especially if you add the SFU2 upgrade to unlock 10-bit capture and 60p output.

Price as reviewed: £2,200.00 (Body Only) TAGS: full-frame Homepage Mirrorless Panasonic Review Full review. Although the K1 is a great camera and capable of taking great pictures, it is not a mirrorless camera. I never said this camera was for video only. You're just repeating what I said and throwing some gibberish in there. But I am surprised they haven't got anything like Panny's high res mode. It's not easy to convey that feeling of weight in a review, which is why people absolutely need to test their future cameras in real life unless they're already familiar with that particular system of course. Like the EOS R, it offers compatibility with DSLR lenses, which could well give the Nikon a versatility edge over the S1's superior image quality. you should rent it first, see how it works with your specific lenses. The rear camera (or cameras) on an iPhone has all the latest bells and whistles, but how do you use them to capture a selfie or record a video of yourself? This is a 47 megapixel full-frame mirrorless camera with 187 megapixel high resolution mode, class leading electronic viewfinder, 6-stop IBIS, and a robust weatherproof body. I'm really happy using the camera traveling with it on vacation, shooting wedding and landscape. Size: The Panasonic is a lot larger.So in the end it is right that they got a silver award, although this is a great camera, and in several ways better better (but also more expensive) then the A7IIIFor many the S1 will be a great camera, but just to expensive, especially when you want to add lenses... @gfrensen, do you need to copy/paste the same in each answer? Battery life (much shorter then the A7III2. (The two million dollar question is if to wait for the imaginary Sony a7S III). As in the S1, Panasonic has coupled the Lumix S1R’s sensor with a new Venus Engine processor. Vaporware no more: the much-speculated-about Zeiss ZX1 has arrived. the new sigma full frame mirrorless is going to be amazing. The Panasonic S1 is a solid, high-quality camera that delivers superb video and stills in many situations, it only lacks in credentials as a sports camera. Nikon Z6 in full frame video gives 144 mbpsPanasonic in full frame goes only to 100 mbps. Both have full color information at each pixel but the Panasonic has increased spatial resolution. You may like the camera and its a decent camera but I believe that those who need a good video camera should stick to video focused cameras like the GH5, A7s II or the upcoming S1H. Drop them both from 2 meters high and on an 45 degrees angle. I don't bother reading Sony or Canon reviews as I have no interest in their cameras or lenses and wouldn't waste my energy picking out bits of info from reviews to then spew forth inconsequential rubbish. an interesting read by the way:https://www.eoshd.com/2019/05/hidden-10bit-5k-mode-on-the-panasonic-s1-has-huge-200mb-bitrate/. The 'One Shot' documentary highlights the incredible amount of preparation and work involved in photographers capturing iconic moments in Olympic history. For photographic needs Sony a7r iv is definitely better, but on videos, there is no comparison. It does exceptionally well for pose portrait, slow walking, or landscape. You get used to it. The S1 is better than the A7 in some aspects but it arrives a year later and costs 25% more so any shortcoming, like less reliable AF, will make it hard to justify top score. Video. They're priced at $2299, $1299 and $1699, respectively. Looks like a great hybrid system for most people, although a bit expensive relative to the ( arguably ) benchmark A7m3, at least as far as amateur/enthusiasts are concerned.... Will be interesting to see how the Af system works for most people, as this is not intended to be a sports/action camera. Who cares. The mount is the problem for me! I will wait another year or two to know if Panasonic will be truly a force to be recognized or just a blip like they have been so far. Hot on the heels of the S5 announcement, Panasonic has promised to release firmware by the end of 2020 that will bring the autofocus of its existing S-series cameras up to the standards of the newer model, and as a nice bonus, gives the S1R the ability to record 5K video. Two main reasons: price and weight. Maybe...but it may be a myth as well.

Go on...it's your rule that without images nothing is proven. Check out the winners of the 2020 DPReview Awards! Those looking for a lighter, more portable body." The Canon RF 800mm F11's unique combination of telephoto reach, affordability and light weight will likely enable even more people to do the same. The authors describe a professional level camera that in many cases seems to be more than what the competitors offer, but then the rating is lower...Anyway Panasonic at its first fullframe has hit the target.The weight and size are not negative, on the opposite, they allow a better balance with heavier and more professional optics.There is time and space for a future SX rangefinder-style camera that will certainly be lighter and cheaper. Saturday April 6, 2019. Snap Verdict. Before I use this camera, I thought the Nikon Z6 and Z7’s electronic viewfinder is amazing and best in the market. It offers a resolution of 24 megapixel. A lightweight, high F-stop, prime or zoom could work the other way but when you are buying a camera like this many of us are looking for a pretty "heavy" lens and there is no way around the physics of making one, despite Canon's best effort to try with the DO technology. Panasonic S1 Review Panasonic’s first full-frame camera is a technical – and literal – heavyweight. Find out what kinds of shooting the Lumix DC-S1 is best suited for. Carry a couple extra batteries. Otherwise for most of videographers who shot manual or only occasionally in AF knowing their limits this is a great tool. I'd thus say that for my usage scenario (tilting horizontally and vertically) dual-hinged is objectively better than fully-articulated. Or even use a power bank and USB charger. Do you even know of Panasonic's past releases? That the mega-dollar (and "professional"?) By. There is no right or best answer: it comes down to individual preference. You don't need a big and heavy camera to balance with a big lens if you know what you are doing. I must have missed that...Have you any personal experience at all with DFD & C-AF? Bless you, you don't already know that high end Panasonic cameras are video cameras with as good stills capability as possible. Well I can understand that it might not fulfil your niche.And also feel sorry for you, as otherwise its a great tool! Panasonic has never ever been primarily about stills. The S1 competes with the likes of the Canon EOS R, Nikon Z6 and Sony a7 III. If the user doesnt tell the camera to track faces, the AF-C still performs OK and delivers sharp shots, but the OVF preview blinkles, which the tester didnt like. Review: Does the Canon Rebel T8i DSLR make sense in an increasingly mirrorless world? Enter the Ulanzi ST-09, an adjustable mount that allows you to turn an Apple Watch into a live viewfinder on the rear of your iPhone. Such is the power of dslr/slr nostalgia - but it wil all change once the dslr-type shape starts looking âoh so old fashionedâ. I've moved from an Olympus E-M5 with a (horizontal) tilt-only display to the E-M5 II with a fully articulated one. How does the Panasonic S1 stack up against the competition, like the Sony a7 III, Nikon Z6 and Canon EOS R? That’s 6fps with continuous autofocusing (C-AF) and 9fps in single AF mode (S-AF). And then there is the issue of the huge size and weight which is a put off for many people. Take a look. Panasonic review published after nearly 5 months. Definitely nailed the peculiar green-blue-gray of the leaves of those tulip plants.Deserves a gold medal just for that. • DSLRs vs mirrorless cameras: how do they compare?

DP Review, Consumer Stills / Video Camera of the Year, November 2019 "The mirrorless Panasonic S1 will be the answer to a lot of photographers’ prayers, who either take their hobby or their living seriously." Just one anecdote to my perspective. That EVF makes manual focusing a breeze. Wouldn't the upcoming Sony A IIIS be a better choice as you can use Emount lenses and with a metabones adaptor all Canon Lenses? You keep saying that the video performance is good. However, the burst depth is more limited at … WIth Sony's release of the A7RMK4 there is very little point in the Fuji GFX (the $10,000 one being the exception) or Hasselblad or any Canon or the Nikon Z7. While I prefer Panasonic cameras in many ways, wow!â¦ Just WOW!Maybe Panasonic needs to knock another $500 of its price, which will make it the same price and competitive with the A7 MkIII, at least in the UK. I will add that if Sony does not make it in the camera industry, it will be due to all of their annoying online trolls who alienate people who otherwise might think better of the brand. The app includes automatic image transfer, gallery creation, editing tools and more. Dpreview seems to value action shooting performance a lot and convenience. We took a look at the field and selected the Panasonic S1H and GH5 as the best cameras for serious videographers. DPReview should hand the rewards out once each year--one gold and one silver and let the camera makers fight it out. The DFD technology is specific to Panasonic, and Dpreview expected it to be subpar. BTW, this is one more instance of MILCman proving Roger Cicala's rule: Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy. Panasonic's S1 is the real deal, delivering both fantastic photo and video quality. What I don't like is that:(a) I need two movements (first flip outwards to the left, then tilt upwards) for a simple horizontal tilt(b) now look at something that is no longer horizontally aligned with the optical axis(c) getting a perfect parallel alignment (ie, such that the normal axis of the display is parallel to optical axis) requires some fine-tuning effortAdditionally, sometimes the image is flipped upside down (which might be due to the camera thinking that I want to rotate the display into selfie mode). Gothic streets and cured meats - check out DPR writer Dan Bracaglia's experience of shooting the S1R at Panasonic's launch event in Barcelona. On the back of the camera the 3.2-inch, 2,100,000-dot screen has a dual-tilt mechanism that feels robust. And its way cheaper and way better lenses. The S1 can capture 4K/60p video with a 1.5x crop as well as oversampled 4K/30p footage. The Panasonic S1 and S1R were first announced at Photokina in 2018. People like the size. The S1/S1R Achilles heel is its contrast-detect autofocus system which Panasonic calls DFD (Depth From Defocus). I don't need that. If one manual focuses though, you are in for a treat. Size: 148.9 x 110.0 x 96.7mm (body only) Photos is one thing mate but this camera really excels at a much higher degree is in it's 4k video recording where it blows every other mirror-less fulframe camera out of the water; specially at higher ISOs.

StoneJack ... but its more efficient H265 codec roughly twice as efficient. Just watch carefully the differences. The Panasonic is clearly better (I looked at the s1). So do you really need an S1H? Really attractive camera. I pretty clearly said it's for hybrid shooters with an emphasis on video. If the Panasonic was built for video only it wouldn't be a 24 MP camera ! threw the lens - is it hard to believe that pros got on just fine before Sony invented eye tracking AF? Not really. The S1 inherits (and improves upon) many of the features from Panasonic's Micro Four Thirds cameras, while adding new full-frame sensors, a High Res mode, HLG photos and more. i'll tell you that the shutter buttons on both of my sony milcs are lousy, the half-press point is barely discernable... bbaf to the rescue.

That Sony tracking AF must be quite intoxicating. What does dfd lens support have to do with computational photography to such a critical degree? The GH5S was created solely for video makers so I am not sure where you're getting this idea that Panasonic is only looking to take on still photographers because nothing in their history indicates that.You're just reverberating everything DPR said about the camera as fact and I am telling you that people feel differently. The Sony A7 IIIâs combination of affordability, features, frame rate and ISO range looked unbeatableâ¦ until the Nikon Z6 and now the Lumix S1. About cars, bad example, the main parameter is the speed, I'll rather crash in a small/light car at half the speed of a big/heavy car, because the force of impact will less than 1/4th. The only thing I want to comment on is the panasonic sensor, and say wow. DPR's criticism of weight and size, I look at as a positive.

The S1 comes with a deeper Defocus (DFD) autofocus system, which is a form of contrast detection autofocus. And they will love the build quality and files they get. Panasonic Lumix S1 review With the S1, Panasonic has built the most impressive mirrorless camera ever By Daven Mathies April 1, 2019 Panasonic Lumix DC-S1 … Also, why are the 89% Z6 and 88% S1 Silver and the 89% A7III Gold?!?!!

You'll see I am right. I highly doubt it! I dont know how the S1 does it, but at the very least, it will be the same. Not sure when EVF (not that it doesn't have its own set of problems) or IBIS becomes more important than the AF performance, Sensor performance and lens selection. The Panasonic Lumix DC-S1 is the company's mid-level full-frame mirrorless camera, built around the L-mount developed by Leica and now supported by Sigma and Panasonic.
