Details

The Panasonic Lumix DC-S1H Mirrorless Digital Camera Body is a Full-frame mirrorless camera with impressive video capabilities, but also features notable flexibility to suit multimedia applications along with an especially durable design. The full-frame 24.2MP CMOS sensor affords versatile performance to suit both video and stills, with a broad 14-stop dynamic range, sensitivity from ISO 100-51200, and adept processing to realize high color accuracy, responsive recording, and a broad array of video capabilities. Using nearly the full sensor, 3:2-format 6K30p video recording is supported, along with 16:9 5.9K30p and both DCI and UHD 4K60p settings with internal 4:2:2 10-bit sampling.

Inspired by broadcast cameras, the Panasonic S1H also uses the updated sensor design to provide Dual Native ISO settings that prioritize either low noise or low sensitivity in order to realize imagery quality with greater color fidelity and reduced noise. Variable Frame Rate (VFR) recording also permits using slow and quick motion effects and High Frame Rate (HFR) settings allow the use of higher frame rates in conjunction with 10-bit sampling. Additionally, V-Log has been pre-installed, and a Hybrid Log Gamma is also available for achieving greater detail when recording, and to benefit color grading during post-production.



24.2MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor and Venus Engine

Featuring a full-frame 24.2MP CMOS sensor, along with an updated Venus Engine, the S1H's imaging capabilities have been optimized for high sensitivity, a wide 14-stop dynamic range, and flexible recording modes. The sensor and processor incorporate Multipixel Luminance Generation and Intelligent Detail Processing technologies, which help to produce high resolution and definition by suppressing color moiré, and Color Control further enhances color reproduction, especially in the highlights and shadows. The Venus Engine's processing power also helps to suppress noise levels throughout the sensitivity range, from ISO 100-51200, and yield fast full-resolution continuous shooting speeds up to 9 fps with AF-S or 6 fps with AF-C, for more than 60 consecutive raw files.

Cinema-quality video recording performance

Outstanding video recording capability is the greatest feature of the LUMIX S1H, making it a professional tool for high-end film making. The S1H features a 24.2-megapixel 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor (35.6 mm x 23.8mm) that’s capable of capturing 6K resolution video and still images measuring 6,024 x 4,016 pixels. The adoption of an OLPF (Optical Low Pass Filter) suppresses moire, which is especially important in video, while optimal signal processing by the Venus Engine assures a maximum ISO 51200 high sensitivity for recording in low light with minimal noise.

High reliability to support professional work

The LUMIX S1H integrates Body I.S. (Image Stabiliser) for powerful camera-shake and vibration correction. Panasonic has developed an algorithm that precisely calculates shake using information acquired not only from a gyro-sensor, but also from the image sensor and an accelerometer sensor within the body of the camera. This enables more accurate shake detection and compensation, making it possible to use shutter speeds 6EV slower*1 than would normally be recommended for any lens/shutter speed combination. Combining the Body I.S. (5-axis) in the camera and the O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser, 2-axis) in the LUMIX S Series lens, the 5-axis Dual I.S. 2 compensates for larger movements than are controllable by conventional methods. Maximising both O.I.S. and B.I.S. for 6.5-stops of compensation*2 is highly beneficial with telephoto lenses and in adverse situations such as in low-light or when one-handed shooting. The 5-axis Dual I.S. 2 works for both photo and video modes, including 4K, 6K and anamorphic recording. The Body I.S. compensates for camera movement even when L-Mount lenses without O.I.S. are used and when other lenses are fitted via an adapter.

Expandability for creative freedom

The LUMIX S1H offers 4:2:2 10-bit 4K 60p/50p HDMI output via a Type A terminal that allows the included cable-lock holder to be used to prevent accidental unplugging and interruptions to recording. It is also compatible with Time Code IN/OUT synchronisation through the flash synchro terminal and comes bundled with a BNC converter cable and BNC cable. This makes it easy to synchronise the non-linear editing of footage shot with multiple cameras. A variety of accessories can be used for the LUMIX S1H in common with the S1R and S1 - a Microphone Adaptor (DMW-XLR1), Remote Shutter (DMW-RS2), Eyecup (DMW-EC6), Battery Grip (DMW-BGS1), Battery Charger (DMW-BTC14) and so on. The Microphone Adaptor is a hotshoe-mounted adaptor for up to two XLR microphones to record high-quality stereo sound. Dedicated switches allow direct, quick control, and MIC, LINE and CONDENSER MICROPHONES are switchable.

High operability for intuitive control

The LUMIX S1H employs three large, high-resolution displays for smooth preview, confirmation of images and shooting information on the spot. The 3.2-inch, 2,330K-dot 3:2 aspect rear touch-screen monitor features approximately 150% higher luminance compared with the LUMIX S1R/S1, GH5 and GH5S for improved visibility when the camera is used outdoors in bright conditions. Adopting a new mechanical structure, the rear display achieves both tilt and rotation movement so that users can easily change angles without unplugging or clashing with HDMI and USB cables. Live View Boost is another practical feature that makes it possible to check composition even in total darkness by boosting screen brightness just for live view. The S1H also incorporates a Night Mode that provides more moderate backlighting so the user’s eyes don’t have to adjust to comfortably see a subject right after viewing the monitor in dark situations. 

High performance photography in stills mode

The LUMIX S1H is not just a high-quality video camera, it is also capable of producing stunning still images in 14-bit RAW format for precise reproduction of colour, tone and detail. Taking full advantage of its high-resolution sensor, the LUMIX S1H offers High Resolution mode that faithfully captures the tiniest details in beautiful, highly-realistic RAW and/or JPEG images. Eight images are recorded automatically while the camera shifts its sensor via the Body I.S. (Image Stabiliser) mechanism. The images are internally combined using the latest high-speed Venus Engine to create a 96-megapixel equivalent (12,000 x 8,000-pixel) picture. This magnificently high-resolution mode is ideal for of stationary subjects using a tripod, such as landscape and fine art photography. However, a Motion Blur option in the High Resolution menu also allows it to be used in situations where there are moving elements in the scene.
