Couldn’t hold my excitement to try out what is arguably the best mirrorless camera for 2019, the Panasonic LUMIX S1R (and S1 of course ?)
Neil Lloyd Meek, Brand Development Team, Panasonic UK, was so helpful to introduce me to the S Series.
Here are some of the specs provided to me by Panasonic: · 24.2 Megapixel full-frame sensor · 6-stop Dual Image Stabilization for Still and Video Mode · Real View Finder with 5760K OLED display High Resolution, High Sensitivity The LUMIX S1 full frame mirrorless camera uses a 24.2-million-pixel CMOS sensor (35.6 x 23.8 mm) that provides a wide dynamic range and excellent signal to noise ratios at high ISO settings. Efficient pixel design, combined with the high-powered Venus Engine processor, allows standard ISO settings to reach ISO 51.200. When extra resolution is needed, a High Resolution Mode can be used to create images with a staggering 96 million pixels. The mode combines information recorded in eight exposures that are taken as the Body I.S. system makes tiny off-set adjustments to the sensor position. The result is a 12.000 x 8.000 pixel RAW-file bursting with information. A feature of the High Resolution Mode is the option to suppress motion blur. Dual I.S. 2 for Incredible Shake Compensation The 5-axis Body I.S. (Image Stabilizer) system compensates for the effects of camera shake to make shutter speeds up to 5.5-stop slower than usual safe to use*1. Combined with the 2-axis O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) in the LUMIX S Series lenses, this Dual I.S. 2 system increases the level of compensation to 6-stop*2, and works to eliminate the effects of a wide variety of camera movement types in both still and video photography*3. Making use of sophisticated technology, vibration measurements are taken not only from a gyro sensor but also using information from the CMOS itself and from an accelerometer sensor. To help photographers remove sources of camera shaking, an I.S. Status Scope has been added that displays a graphic interpretation of vibration. The LUMIX S1 offers filmmakers exceptional video quality and a wide range of tools to take full creative control of their footage. 4K-video is offered at 60/50p*1, while full pixel readout is achieved at 30p for exceptionally clean and detailed images. With the full width of the sensor being used, the focal length of lenses is retained and the creative possibilities of extreme shallow depth of field are available.
