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.
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.
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.
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.
* 5-Axis Dual I.S.2 can be used with the lens S-R24105 and S-R70200 as of February 1, 2019.
** 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).
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.
* Maximum recording time of 29 minutes 59 seconds in 4K 60p.
** Excludes high-speed video recording. When the ambient temperature is high or continuous recording is performed, the camera may stop the recording to protect itself. Wait until the camera cools down.
the LUMIX S1 will offer 4K 24/30p 4:2:2 10-bit internal video recording, 4K 60p 4:2:2 10-bit HDMI live output and V-Log as a software upgrade option (sold separately), to address the needs of the Professional video user. 4:2:2 10-bit, is capable of recording over 1 billion colours, approximately 128 times the data volume of 4:2:0 8-bit. This massive volume of colour data is highly valuable in post-production, making it possible to optimise colours within the grade and even turn daylight into nightime in some scenes. In addition 4K 24p/30p video can be shot Full-Frame and full-pixel readout. Utilising the full power of the S1 Full-Frame camera takes 4K video to exciting new places.
Panasonic's advanced technology ensures unified control of the sensor, engine and lens to deliver high-speed, high-precision focus from every angle. Super-fast sensor to lens communication of 480fps and Panasonic's DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology makes high-speed, high-precision auto-focus in approximately 0.08 seconds a reality.* In addition, low-light Auto-focus performance is improved down to an impressive -6EV.** Higher Sensitivity and optimised tuning of the sensor have increased light capturing performance, making crisp focusing possible with nothing more than starlight. Advanced processing technology can recognise not only human bodies but also a variety of animals, and the high-performance tracking system helps maintain focus on your subject.
* 11EV, at wide-end with S-R24105 (CIPA) in LVF120 fps setting. ** At ISO100, F1.4, AFS. 100% contrast target
Boasting an Ultra-high resolution of 5,760k dots, the Real View Finder is the highest resolution in its class.* Outstanding clarity and sharpness makes it feel as though you're looking at your subject through an optical viewfinder and helps concentration when shooting. With a minimum distortion lens for edge to edge clarity and a high magnification of 0.78x, the Real View Finder supports both perfect framing and high-precision focusing. The responsive OLED display offers an incredibly low 0.005-second minimum lag and an ultra-high 120fps refresh rate to ensure fast moving subjects are kept in view. With a switchable magnification the view finder can be tailored to your requirements or shooting situation.

With the ever-growing popularity of web streaming and content, especially on YouTube and Twitch; the need for a high level production (or one that at least looks like it) is accelerating. Just turning your webcam on won’t cut it anymore. You’re going to be up against a lot of competing content that looks professional. Essentially, you’re looking at a small-scale live production, where every aspect needs to be considered. So, where do you start? The majority of streamers already out there, most likely, will have started out with a webcam, routed through a CDN platform like OBS, which is free software that, as well as streaming, provides basic mixing features that allow them to create live productions. A basic enhancement is to stream direct from a professional camcorder or attach your existing camera to a Teradek VidiU Go or Datavideo streaming encoder.And, by all means, that’s where you should start too. But if your channel starts to grow and you pick up a decently sized viewer base, you may be able to start gaining revenue from your channel through video monetisation or subscriber donations. At this point, it’s definitely time to update your gear. Webcams are fine but, like TV, it’s a competitive market and subpar equipment and production value will leave you in the depths…Only to be overlooked by a bored viewer, aimlessly scrolling through YouTube.
*Users who already have DMW-SFU2 do not need to purchase extra DMW-SFU2. There is no need of upgrading the camera with DMW-SFU2 if upgrading with DMW-SFU2 was once done before.
