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 images 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 up to 6-stop slower shutter speed right up to the tele-end. The LUMIX S1R 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).

Advanced Recognition Technology

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

5,760k-dot Resolution Real View Finder

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.

Getting Started on YouTube Live

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.
