Full-Frame Hybrid, Fuel the Passion for Stills and Video

A new 24.2MP CMOS sensor that has the capability of delivering incredibly realistic details for both Stills and Video creatives. Shooting stills at up to 9fps and 4K video recording with no time limit highlights the Professional capabilities*. Going beyond the boundaries of stills and video, this Full-Frame mirrorless camera is for inspirational visionaries. 

24.2MP CMOS Sensor: Maximising Sensitivity and Image Quality

Whether shooting stills or video, the LUMIX S1 gives you breathtaking image quality with no compromise. With the ability of every pixel to effectively gather light, the 24.2 Megapixel MOS sensor offers wide dynamic range, sharp, natural colours even at higher ISO settings. Leveraging the power of the Venus Engine, the S1 can shoot up to a maximum ISO 51,200. Whether you are a Professional photographer or videographer, the combination of high sensitivity and high image quality makes the S1 an ideal tool whatever the shoot.

Venus Engine Power

The marriage of a CMOS sensor with the powerful Venus Engine reproduces extraordinary colours and natural looking details and textures. Multi-pixel Luminance Generation and Intelligent Detail processing render intense brightness and contrast. The Three-Dimensional Colour control delivers rich colours across the gamut, while high-precision Multi-process Noise Reduction ensures your image deliver even at the higher ISO's.

5-axis Dual I.S. 2: Clarity and Sharpness through a greater range of shutter speeds.

Be confident in capturing incredibly sharp handheld photos without worrying about shake: the 5-axis Dual I.S. 2 (Image Stabilizer) brings intelligent compensation to your aid. This provides up to 6-stops of benefit, meaning you can use upto 6-stop slower shutter speed right up to the tele-end. The LUMIX S1 can virtually eliminate shake in both body and lens, across both stills and video recording, including 4K. The astonishing power of the 5-axis Body I.S. can correct shake for all lenses, upto 5.5 stops***, even those not equipped with O.I.S.

** Based on the CIPA standard (Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=200mm when S-R70200 is used).
*** Based on the CIPA standard (Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=50mm when S-X50 is used).

4K 60p Video recording

Panasonic's combination of new sensor technology and Venus engine provide the power to deliver spectacular 4K 60p utilising the whole of the Full-Frame sensor*. Thanks to the combination of these advanced technologies the S1 is able to deliver smooth and natural looking footage even with rapidly moving scenes.

The LUMIX S1 has been designed to facilitate outstanding heat dissapation, allowing it shoot both 4K 30p/24p and Full-HD recording with no time limit.** The ability to record for extended shoots makes this an ideal choice for a wide range of professional usages, such as no-cut documentaries, fixed-point shooting of wild animals and more.
